Rank #2: 44: Exploring What Grows in Isolation
Do you find that you're always doing everything for others and nothing for yourself? Or are you afraid to confide in other women, lest they judge you for it? Then join Anna today and find the courage to speak out and create a new conversation and a new connection and learn to support one another as women, regardless of who you are, what you do or wherever you may be. Today's show was inspired by the movie Bad Moms. Although the movie is a comedy, Anna became moved to tears while watching it, because of the way it points to how women tend to push themselves to be everything for everyone else, leaving nothing for themselves. If this is universally true and there's enough content to make a movie out of it, Anna asks why women are so isolated by it. She would like to know why women can't approach one another in an open, honest way and talk about their fears, shortcomings and where they feel they're screwing up. She also talks about the messages that women get, that if they're not meeting a “Stepford” example, they're bad. Listen in today, as Anna encourages you, as women, to realize that you're all in the same experience and that it's up to you to make the change.

Rank #3: 41: Learning to Live Fully with special guest Tara Whitney
How do you really feel about your body? Do you think you're too fat to feature? Or not quite thin enough to be good enough? If this is you, listen in to today's show as Anna and her guest Tara talk about the messages women get about their bodies and how this can move you into a really disordered place of shame around the way you look. They also discuss the need to create a counter culture for bodies needing to look a certain way in order to be acceptable. Tara Whitney is a CPA, business owner, professional speaker, writer and executive health coach. She's best known for successfully coaching women to change their relationship with food, overcome binge and over-eating and to create a life they fall in love with. Tara's message is about getting women to re-think around food and their bodies, especially as related to their own worth.

Rank #4: 50: Fearless
The short and sweet of it: During the month of April, we are talking about why women rock! Women often forget that so much of what they do on a daily basis is extraordinary! We think it’s just our job or part of our duties and rarely do we acknowledge how amazing we are. Often, we fall into the comparison trap and actually criticize our own inadequacy. Today we are talking about how women are amazing because they are fearless. Being fearless doesn’t mean that you aren’t afraid. Being fearless means that you feel fear and yet march forward in the face of fear. Women walk through the fear to get to the other side and they do it day after day so they can show up for everyone in their lives. The ripple effect this creates is utterly incalculable. Fear is not a closed door. It’s not the end for women. We see it. We feel it and yet we march forward anyway.

Rank #5: 45: Live Your Dreams... Today
Are you really living your passion and doing what you love? Or do you find yourself pushing through and trying to bulldoze your way past exhaustion? On today's show, Anna talks about giving yourself permission to slow down and live a life that you really love. The last movie for Anna's Movie Month is Sing. Today, she shares that what really stood out for her in the movie. She talks about the characters who don't initially recognize their gifts and talents and how they eventually have to stand on the stage, own their passion and sing from their souls. She relates this to how many people limit their experiences in life, due to fear. Listen in today as Anna encourages you to turn away from fear, do what you love and love what you're doing.

Rank #7: 71: Choices and Transitions: Compare and Despair
Hello, everyone! August has been a month full of Transition and Change. Oftentimes, we go through transitions with our eyes outward. It is so easy in these vulnerable seasons to tend to compare ourselves to others. The comparison is a dangerous beast, and it often leads to despair. So how can we combat that tendency to compare and despair?

Rank #8: 37: Balance is Bulls*%t!
Do you struggle to attain balance in your daily life, or sometimes think that it's just not worth the effort to keep trying? If this is you, join Anna on today's episode, as she shares the first six items on her top ten list of why she firmly believes that Balance is B******t. Anna Osborn, wife, mother of twins, business owner and licensed psychotherapist explains why she thinks that balance can be a huge barrier to the idea of wellness. She gives her take on how balance can lead to self-destruction, due to BS expectations. She believes that we will end up being stuck in a place of disconnection from our spirit, soul, heart and head and no wellness can be achieved through striving for balance. Want show notes?

Rank #9: 54: Creating a Soft Landing
“May you rest in the space of “good enough.” You are good. You are enough. You are sufficient in this moment, just as you are. You deserve goodness and kindness and hope and help. This is my wish for you.” ~ Nanea Hoffman It’s a new month and a new theme! We are talking about Creating a Soft Landing. Now, I use this phrase all the time - in my life, in my practice, and on the show. So, I wanted to take the month to really expound on what that means and also to put some meaning to the phrase, so you can be conscious of it in your life.

Rank #10: 58: Breaking the Silence with special guest Ann Peck - EXPLICIT

Today, Anna wraps up the series of A Soft Landing with an interview with Ann Peck, who looks at the topic of A Soft Landing in really a unique way. She looks at it from the perspective of releasing shame and solidifying your voice and that cannot be done if you're staying in silence.

Rank #11: 42: Becoming The Heroine of Your Own Story
Are you ready to talk about politics, with things being so crazy politically and socially, today? Or are you too afraid to open the discussion, just in case it starts an argument? For a way in on this topic, join Anna, as she makes herself vulnerable and questions the way she's dealt with politics in the past. On today's show, she talks about how she's decided to change that, through taking action. As a child, Anna never had a chance to have political conversations with her family, as that was deemed to be impolite. As a result, she grew up believing that if she did talk about politics, a fight would break out, feelings would get hurt, or chaos would somehow ensue. So, she stayed silent, thinking that would be best. Today, however, she has realized that by going on with business as usual and not tying into what's going on currently in the world around her, she would be letting her fear hold her back. Listen in today, as Anna talks about how you too, can step beyond your anxiety and become aware of and take responsibility for your situation and become the heroine of your own story.

About two years ago, when Anna started doing podcasts, she had some really amazing guests, however, she found that sound quality of the first few recordings was horrible, so she didn't put them out there. One of the people that she had interviewed was Kelly and when Anna reached out to her and explained what had happened, Kelly graciously offered to return to the show when Anna felt ready. So, Anna feels really honored to have Kelly back on the show today. She stresses the importance of looking at her topic for this month, Creating A Soft Landing, from all sides. She explains that a soft landing is a place that we go and it's also a place that we are.

Rank #13: 03: What is Unscripted?
Episode 03: What is Unscripted? On today’s show I talk about the definition of unscripted and how important is as a “practice” rather than a destination. I also explore whether or not we’re supposed to look for meaning in our unscripted journey and how it can distort the way we see the world.

Rank #14: 55: Creating a Sanctuary with Remya Warrior
Is your home your haven? Or would you really love to create a space for yourself to feel warm and safe within your home? Remya Warrior, today's guest, was introduced to Anna by a mutual friend. With this month's theme being Creating Soft Landings, Anna instantly wanted to have her on the show, to share her story, her work and her passion with you. Listen in today as Remya talks about giving yourself permission and creating a sanctuary for yourself within your home, as a soft landing space and as a way to feel safe.

Rank #15: 69: Choices and Transitions: From Stuck to Finding Stillness
Welcome back, everyone! August is a month that brings forth change and transition, for better or for worse. Moms, in particular, know this feeling well, because August means back to school, back to routine, and back into the same patterns that might have left you feeling “stuck” in the past. Ana learned this week through life’s very unscripted moments that feeling “stuck” really sucks, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be a negative thing. Feeling out of control is just that, a feeling. The beauty of our emotions is that they inform us about our environment. Life has slowed you down and forced you to pause, so use that time! It is in those moments of stillness that we can begin to understand our feelings.

Rank #17: 68: Choice and Transitions: Letting it be Raw
During this month of August, we are doing a series on choice, transition, and change. This topic is, as always, personally relevant to Anna and her current life situation. Most people tend to show up in the world in a way that is pulled together, with the right answer and a positive attitude, but Anna reminds you that this podcast is really about the exact opposite. It's about showing up just as you are, raw, unfiltered and unscripted. Listen in to find out more. Anna would love to say that she always shows up in a composed manner, however, the truth of it is that she can't. When she's in the throes of trying to figure something out, she has to show up being honest and transparent, because that's the whole point of this project. It is really all about coming together and owning the parts of yourself that are hurting and fragmented and being able to put words to that and to know that you're not alone. When things happen to you, that are totally out of our control, you have to go through a period of putting words to expressing quite how bad it really is.

Rank #18: 64: Let Freedom Ring: The Quest for Balance
How often have you planned something, only to have your plans thwarted by some unforeseen occurrence? Anna points out that we're constantly learning lessons and the universe is constantly showing us that we're really not in control. This can be a hard lesson for some people. It was really hard for Anna when she found out that she has to move her office from the place that she's been really happy and where she managed to create the kind of sanctuary that makes both her and her clients feel safe and held. Through this, she discovered, contrary to what she used to think, that she really does not enjoy the change in her life. Yet, change is inevitable. Anna finds it almost incredible to see how the topics that she chooses for each month really tend to align with what's going on in her life. So, still talking about freedom, in the month of July, Anna is finding freedom from the expectation that she's going to change. Listen in to find out what she has to say.

Rank #19: 67: Choice and Transitions: Do we have a choice?
With the Shine Retreat fast approaching, and the promise of kiddos starting school in the fall, Anna realizes that seasons of transition and change are about to begin. It can be startling to know that life might be passing you by. Instead of facing change and transition, we tend to let it overcome and overwhelm us. When life seems to hand us more than we can manage, do we really have a choice to thrive? Anna’s conclusion? A resounding YES! We can make ourselves open to change and open to the lessons that life’s transitions can teach us. Is this change a positive one, or a negative one. Perhaps it’s all about how you let it define you. Let’s face it: you might be in a place right now you never wanted to be. Instead of feeling despair, be grateful to know that you have been presented with a choice to live wholeheartedly.

Rank #20: 65: Let Freedom Ring! Ditching Expectations
In the spirit of the 4th of July, this month on Her Life Unscripted is all about Freedom. This week, Ana dives deep into what it means to be freed from expectations. Yes, those creeping, uninvited guests who wrinkle relationships and ruin plans. Life is full of unmet expectations, whether that’s for a dreamy office space, your idea of a perfect vacation, or even what you expect from a relationship. During this season of celebration, it is tempting to be let down when our expectations aren’t met. So how do we combat that? Links: Her Life Unscripted Facebook Page, give it a LIKE!
