We Can Do Hard Things

Mindfulness & Self-Compassion

Good morning beautiful people,

I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world.

For most of us, lockdown is still very much a reality and getting tough. Yet, we can do hard things… and actually have no choice but to face this new reality. I want to say “awful”, but the truth is that I don’t even know what to say, it definitely depends on the day.

Everything is impermanent and at some point, this situation will eventually change too but again, until then, let’s remind ourselves that we can do hard things.

Today’s guest in Beyond Norms, tends to do hard things, from giving birth at home, to empowering thousands of women at conferences. Her name is Anna af Jochnick, she is a board member of the social wellness company Oriflame, who has about three million women around the world, selling their products.

Anna shares with us the art of not paying attention to what others think, and how to listen to what’s for your own highest good, and the one of your family.

Do you know how to listen?

In case you don’t, I will invite you to take a deep breath and let the magic in. When you feel ready, how about breathing out everything and anything you no longer need?

I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did, and pls know that I will take a two weeks break from this podcast, so that I can come back with a music theme and more juicy guests.

Don’t hesitate to email me your thoughts.

Until then,

With Love and Deep Respect,

Vanessa
