Devastating heartbreak. Sudden illness. Unexpected departures.
Whether it’s a business challenge or a personal situation, tough times happen for everyone.
Trying to “stay positive” and “keep the faith” can feel almost impossible. And no matter how strong we think we are, unforeseen change can leave us all feeling quite vulnerable and lost.
That’s why it’s important to remember that even though you may feel helpless — you’re not.
On today’s episode of MarieTV you’ll be reminded of four simple concepts and practices that can be your lifeline back to normalcy — especially when everything around you is far from it.
(Ironically, you’ll see how we dealt with a few unexpected challenges of our own while on set shooting this episode!)
Have you ever felt blindsided?
Like a situation appeared in your business or life that threw things into a tailspin and suddenly all of your options to move ahead seem, well…
Sooner or later, we all find ourselves in the midst of a challenging situation and can feel ill-equipped to move forward.
When the proverbial dookie hits the fan, many of us react in one of two ways. Either:
1. We freeze up and become unwilling to make any decision — hoping that somehow, someway, everything will “magically” take care of itself (which it rarely does).
2. We make a series of rash decisions from a place of anger or fear, triggering even more seemingly sucky problems than we had in the first place.
Thankfully, there is a third option.
I’m still riding a sweet TV high from Sunday night.
The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones both had big nights (one season finale and one season premiere, respectively) and I was really happy to indulge in a little popcorn break.
That’s because since the car accident a few weeks ago, things have felt a bit more intense than usual.
Which brings me to today’s very special MarieTV episode.
You see, I’ve known about this topic for years — and even heard great things about it from many people I trust. But honestly, I was still skeptical.
That’s until our car wreck gave me a big reason to dig in and really test it for myself.
You see, the stress, psychological trauma and after-effects of that crash simply could not be cleared by traditional means.
I know that millions of people around the world swear by EFT’s effectiveness — and if you don’t already know what it is or how it works, you’re in for a treat.
Whether you have trauma from a past event, or simply a lot stress affecting your energy, results and joy — this episode is a must watch.
Before we get going into today’s episode, I want to thank you so very much for all of the love and prayers you sent our way after last week’s accident.
I’m happy to report we’re all doing so much better, and we’re taking very active (and gentle ) steps to heal.
There’s no doubt in my mind that YOUR positive energy and intentions have, and continue to, help my family tremendously.
Speaking of family, you’ll get to see and hear directly from my man Josh — today.
Josh is an incredible actor, director and teacher. While you can look him up on IMDB to see everything he’s been in, you’ll be able to catch him this summer in the brand new Showtime series, Ray Donovan alongside Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight.
So how does this relate to you?
Well, if you ever struggle with a fear of public speaking, or putting yourself on video, or getting on a big stage, or “putting yourself out there” . . .
This MarieTV episode is a MUST WATCH.
I had no idea I was going to write about this today, but when I thought about whether or not I should mention it . . .
I don’t feel like I have a choice as I’m still pretty shaky.
Sunday afternoon we were hit pretty bad in a car accident.
Josh, myself and Kuma were driving down a quiet side street here in Venice when a driver sped through a back alleyway — without stopping — and slammed into the side of our car.
The impact was horrific. Glass shattered everywhere, and in an instant our car was forced underneath another parked car on the side of the road.
Thank God, we’re all fine (save nasty bruises, soreness, totaled cars, Kuma peed on my pants – LOL etc.).
The most upsetting thing though is how my mind keeps flashing these “alternate reality” scenarios in my head. These horrible, mini movies where if it were just a few seconds off . . .
Either Josh, Kuma or myself may not have survived. That’s really is the worst part for me — everytime I shut my eyes or try to rest, they come up.
So before we get into today’s episode, I invite you to take a moment to connect with and express your genuine love for the dearest people in your life.
