Hey Ass kickers!

Welcome to episode 129 of the Your Kick-Ass Life podcast! I’m thrilled to bring you this archived episode with life coach, master communicator and my very best friend, Amy E. Smith. Amy hosts a podcast called The Joy Junkie with her hubs, Mr. Smith. On the podcast and in her business Amy helps people find their voice, and stand up for themselves (without being a dick).

I brought her on the show to talk about self-love: what it is and how to practice it no matter who you are or where you are in your life. We get into the common misconceptions and pitfalls about self-love, why loving yourself actually helps you change your life and why choosing self-love is a daily practice.

We also talk about:

  • What exactly is self-love – and why it is NOT narcissism.
  • You can't fully love others unless what?
  • The one question to ask to start dismantling disempowering beliefs.
  • How self-love impacts the message we give others, especially our children.
  • What is the one thing you need to start the process of change?
  • Amy's exercise to help you examine your beliefs around self-love.
  • Beliefs will be hard and concrete until we do this.
  • When does shift happen?
  • And much more!

Self-love is such an important and yet often misunderstood topic. Amy and I shed light on it, while bringing plenty of laughter and entertainment so sit back, listen in and enjoy episode 129 of the Your Kick-Ass Life podcast!
