In the past couple weeks, the world stood in awe as Bruce Jenner confirmed the rumors that he is transgender and will be transitioning into a woman.
This announcement has not only brought shock to the general public and raised many questions, his announcement also served to bring awareness to the plight many transgender people face—threats of being disowned by their families, fearing no one will love them for who they really are and hurting those around them, not to mention the violence, prejudice, and hatred that they can experience.
This not only hurts my heart, but it inspires me to take action.
In my line of work, I see this underlying feeling of being underserving and unworthy waaaaay too often.
To be honest, it’s what I see the most of—so I decided to do something about it.
This week’s video kicks off the You Are Worthy Campaign (#youareworthycampaign).
The campaign is dedicated to everyone out there who doesn’t feel good enough or feels unlovable. If this is you, please hear me when I say that you are so special and you are worthy!
So let’s get to this week’s episode of Positive PollyAnna TV! Continue reading
I was listening to an old Jeff Foxworthy stand-up comedy bit the other day that really made me laugh.
He was talking about how his wife mentioned she was cold, so he got up to turn the fan off.
Somewhere on his way back to the bed, he realized he had been trained.
While it was amusing, it made me think about all of the conversations I’d heard growing up about different people training their spouses (even in the movies!).
I’d heard it from both men and women, and this concept kept rattling around in my brain.
That’s when I decided I would give y’all the secret to training your partners. Continue reading
Relationships can be intense. Sometimes we are left feeling like what is the point?
But there is actually a profound reason we have relationships, and it’s important for us to give our relationships (and ourselves) the nourishment they deserve.
Check out this week’s Positive PollyAnna TV episode to learn why. Continue reading
I have always been passionate about helping women realize that there are great men out there that will love them completely.
The problem is sometimes, we women can get caught up in the stereotypes we’ve derived about men from our negative experiences, which breeds these super toxic belief systems about men within us.
The problem with that?
It’s really hard to have an amazing relationship when you’re always waiting for the other shoe to drop.
That’s why I wanted to make this week’s video about the Top Five Myths About Men That Keep Women In Negative Relationship Cycles.
I want to help women lay these false belief systems to rest, and jump into the belief systems that will support their happy, healthy unions.
Without further ado, check out this week’s episode of Positive PollyAnna TV! Continue reading
For most men and women, their partners are complete anomalies. It can be difficult to decipher from the classic “I’m fine” – meaning “I’m complacent” – and the other “I’m fine” – meaning “back the hell up!”
We’re taught to conceal our negative emotions and engage in these social courting rituals that slowly break down the foundation of a good relationship from the beginning. Women are taught to make men chase them, while men are taught to be aloof and pretend they don’t care.
When anyone of any gender feels a genuine connection with a love interest, we get elated, we feel giddy, and our thoughts seem to consistently drift toward the person with whom we wish to share affection.
As our feelings seem to be ever in conflict with our actions when it comes to contemporary courting, I thought it was time to offer up some new ways to develop and completely enjoy that special connection we all desire. Continue reading
There are moments in our lives when our challenges surpass our expectations, spilling over what we perceived to be the brink of our limits.
This is when we are asked to stretch, called to grow, and forced to pick up the pieces of the shattered self we wish to keep.
Our faith is tested, our worlds are rocked, and our innate healthy glow may seem a little dimmed.
During these trials, our inspiration, drive, and focus can play second fiddle to tissues, naps, and Netflix marathons.
While those processing mechanisms definitely have their time and place, our inspiration and creativity do not have to suffer.
Our inspiration is directly related to our very essence, and no matter how hurt or diminished we feel, we always have our essence. The core of who we are.
When you’re feeling low, there are several steps you can take to line up with your inspiration. Here are just a few. Continue reading
We grow up comparing ourselves to others. Who has the prettiest dress, the cutest doll, the coolest Hotwheels, and don’t even get me started on shoes!
I am not sure whether this comparison stems from our parents, society, or if it is simply an innate data collection method that’s run awry with our self-worth from misuse.
Regardless, this is not a habit we tend to outgrow UNLESS we get to know our true selves as individuals.
Now you know I talk about the importance of self-love all the time, but that’s because it is the single most important thing you will ever learn in your life.
