What IS Cool Anyway?
What IS Cool Anyway?
This episode centers on how we get easily swayed by what we see out there without taking the time to appreciate what is cool about what is already within us. About the importance of having more autonomy in our youth in terms of being more free-thinkers instead of thinking we're cool because we're following others. and how uncool that is anyway and ironically so because we associate being IN (keeping up with others) with being cool. The beauty of individuality, and loving and celebrating others and ourselves for what makes them/us unique. The beauty in tapping in ourselves...♥ Please, don't forget to subscribe and leave a rating and/or review ♥  Click here to follow Let's Talk and Grow on all social media platforms: https://msha.ke/letstalkandgrow to follow behind the scene stories of the journey on Instagram.

Feeling Behind in Life
Feeling Behind in Life
Sometimes we feel behind in life and while it is a very human thing to feel at any age, when that happens it's always important to come back to ourselves and realize these things (mentioned in this weeks episode). These are some of the thoughts that I navigate through when those feelings want to creep up on me, and if you're listening, I hope this perspective can be a balm for you as well, as it is for me in life ♥.

Being the Older Sibling

Hi lovely people! In this episode, I touch on what it has felt like for me being the older sibling. The feelings have changed over the years, but it's been amazing how much life can surprise you on what someone ends up meaning and being to your life. A few years ago although my sister and I's relationship was ok, it was always on the surface, but now...WOW!  Please, don't forget to subscribe and leave a rating ♥  Click here to follow Let's Talk and Grow on all social media platforms: https://msha.ke/letstalkandgrow to follow behind the scene stories of the journey on Instagram.

Being an Introvert
Being an Introvert
In this episode, I talk about my experience as an introvert and the prenotions that others might have on why people are introverts. The loneliness that comes with being an introvert but also the fact that it's a pleasure to some of us. Basically, we are not all introverted for the same reasons but maybe if you're an introvert you might feel like some of this resonates with you, and if you're an extrovert, it might help you know why some people are introverted. As always, I'm simply hoping with every episode that you feel less alone ♥.

What Kind of Latin@ am I?
What Kind of Latin@ am I?
We were watching the JLo "Halftime" documentary on Netflix when my sister asks "Aren't you proud of being Latina?". All of a sudden all these questions as to what makes a Latina, arose as I questioned the stereotypes that come with being one vs. what I am. This is for anyone, regardless of race, age, or gender, and I hope that if in any way or in others, you relate, that you know you are not alone ♥.

Cancel Culture and the Parts I Don't Agree With
Hello Beautiful People! We are back with another episode of Let's Talk and Grow! This week I discuss cancel-culture and the parts that I am "iffy" about, to an extent.

Wasn't I the One Who...?
Wasn't I the One Who...?
Hi beautiful people! This episode titled Wasn't I the One Who... is an episode that came about when I was having self-doubt. I don't know where I heard "Wasn't I the one..." whether it was on television, or in my head but as someone who is inspired by nearly everything, those word seem to come to me just at the right time. My mind (like it does every time an episode comes about), started creating a whole set of moments of questions like "Weren't you the woman that did this all alone? Aren't you the woman who risked everything for....Then what makes you think that you can do these things that beside that seem so simple if you just continue to be consistent and have faith in yourself. You can do all things! I found myself deeply inspired that I wanted to share this episode with you in case you are ever doubting yourself. This more than an episode, I saw it as an amazing exercise that you can say to yourself out loud or write down in a notebook.

What I Would Tell Little Girl Me (Alondra)
What I Would Tell Little Girl Me (Alondra)
Hello beautiful people! This episode is about all the things I wish I had told that little Me, Alondra; full of uncertainty, who felt deep loneliness but then found the greatest friend in herself. The girl who felt like she had to raise herself at times which also made her introverted, quiet and reserved. None of which are bad, but adult me has the comfort to her pains and doubts that wouldn't allow her to come out of her shell. In this episode I dive into the lessons I've learned that could have helped HER. First point being: This space is as much yours as it is everyone else's take as much space in this canvas of the universe as you dare, live it, breathe it unapologetically no matter how your surroundings have wanted to make you feel small and threatened.

Body Image (regardless of gender) and Individuality
Body Image (regardless of gender) and Individuality
In this episode of Let's Talk and Grow I celebrate individuality; staying true to the beauty of what makes you, you. Be and look the way you feel beautiful, bold and inspired, but make sure you are doing it because that is what speaks to you and not because being or looking a certain way is the trend of the year. This episode serves both young and old, people who have been ridiculed as well the person that has ridiculed as well.

New Year Resolutions and my Feels
New Year Resolutions and my Feels
Listen, I am not one to usually set New Year resolutions, but I just happen to be at particular momentum in life where the feelings of making huge changes are very prominent in my life, not because it's the start of a new year, but rather the moment just happens to be aligning to the times coincidentally so. For one, I just started this podcast towards the end of the year, and I've been wanting to start so many things, I have a good or perhaps a little above average (maybe) relationship with my family, but there are still some things in this situation and other aspects of my life that I talk about that need some fixing that need to be addressed before I leave this Earth, this lifetime (Dramatic phrasing, I know; but I'm SERIOUS, dahling!)

Gratitude
Gratitude
Gratitude, a practice that is so underrated in this world; a true life-changer. In this episode, Alondra Jiménez talks about how she unknowingly was practicing gratitude when she was just a middle-schooler walking on her way to school in the mornings, and how she eventually learned what it was when she had a spiritual awakening in 2017. She goes on to explain a practice that she learned by Psychologist Dr. Shipon and how she learned that gratitude and anger could not exist in your heart and the same time as well as her practices with gratitude.  Please don't forget to subscribe and leave a rating ♥ Click here to follow Let's Talk and Grow on all social media platforms: https://msha.ke/letstalkandgrow to follow behind the scene stories of the journey on Instagram as well as Facebook audio group rooms.

Stop Getting in the Way of Yourself Part 1
Stop Getting in the Way of Yourself Part 1
We have so many dreams in our lives that we don't pursue because we think we're not worthy of putting ourselves out there because we don't have the expertise, the public opinions credibility, because we're too shy, or because we're not as good as the "best", or because everyone will think we're making a fool out of ourselves. Stop letting others and yourself getting in the way of your soul reaching its ultimate version of YOU! Please follow me on this journey in making our dreams come true. Putting ourselves out there, because really! Nobody cares as much as you think they do when you're so worried about what others are going to think. COVID-19 has taught us that life is precious and worth every second of living. Losing people has taught us that we want to not only spend time with our loved ones and take care of our health, but that life is too short to not live doing what makes your heart fill with joy.  You don't want to be in your deathbed thinking "what if?". The time is NOW! Many of us are so fortunate and blessed that in this day in age, most of the things we want to do we can learn online. Be consistent, be passionate, be inspired and see yourself grow! I can't wait for you to pursue your dreams and through our willingness to live our fullest self, inspire a chain of others to do so as well...much love.
