Scared As Fuck And Doing It Anyway, Showing Up Authentically

Scared As Fuck And Doing It Anyway, Showing Up Authentically

Welcome to the Scared as Fuck & Doing it Anyway, Showing Up Authentically podcast, with host Paula Schuster. Tune in weekly to hear raw, unfiltered and unedited conversations about getting out of the cycles of self-abandonment, taking off the masks we put on to be accepted, shedding the conditioning that tells us we're selfish for putting ourselves first, getting out of achievement mode, ditching the “good girl” persona, forgetting about what we “should do”, tuning into our intuition for guidance on our own unique path, and Living. Life. On. Our. Terms. Together we’ll wake up to life and stop this crazy epidemic around checking everyone else’s boxes but our own. We will peel back the layers of conditioning and talk about what it means to live according to our own rules and desires, because what we don’t change, we choose. We will muster the courage and discipline to make changes for ourselves and show up differently. My goal is for this show to inspire you to become more authentic and learn to love yourself……MORE. In addition to conversations, I’ll throw in a meditation here and there, and some sound baths. If you’re ready to feel better, more fulfilled, more at ease, more aligned with yourself, more comfortable in your own body, and be nicer to yourself, then subscribe now and join me on this empowering journey of self-discovery and transformation, because no one is coming to save you. It’s an inside job. Authenticity is our greatest freedom and we’re all Scared As Fuck And Doing It Anyway.
