003 The Queen of quotes part 1

Hi Friends! You’re listening to Self-Love is Blind I’m your host Jillian and I’m legally blind. Self-Love is Blind is a podcast where we discuss all things self love related, the challenges, the self doubt that can get in the way and sharing suggestions on ways to overcome those challenges. I don’t think of myself as being disabled and my friends don’t really think of me as being disabled either, everyone has challenges, some more than others. – shout out Hadley for being my first patron, thank you! It’s be almost two weeks now since the podcast was live and I am absolutely overwhelmed by the fantastic response I’ve received so far, thank you to everyone who reached out, subscribed, and rated the podcast on iTunes.  It is so cool to watch the number of listeners grow, and I can also see there are people listening all over the place, in Ireland, Romania and the US.   I’m also a bit overwhelmed in general, I’m driving this bus by myself and it’s kind of like if I was actually driving a bus, I’m blind, that’s scary for everyone. I actually have no idea what I’m doing, but I’m doing it, I’m a little behind only because I just realized I was doing something manually when I didn’t need to. So, I should be able to get on track with my weekly Tuesday releases. it’s all a learning experience for me at this point. I’ve been told I sound confident, let’s just say I know how to put on a show, I’m not nearly as confident as I sound. Fake it till you make it. Self-Love tips for the week- Music is everything, ...

002 You don't need to have perfect eyesight to have a vision

I am so pumped to be doing this! I combined all my skills together to make this happen. my IT diploma taught me how to teach myself how to learn and use the editing software and putting my website together. It’s almost complete! My Marketing diploma I thought had gone to waste will help me to promote the podcast and deal with advertising, which is what would have done if there had of been opportunities here in Halifax, Nova Scot​ia. My ten plus years of customer service in various roles helped me to develop my communication skills. My social personality allowed me to build my network. Once I started my self-love journey, I really started believing in myself, when you believe in yourself so deeply that’s all that seems to matters.  After finishing the first episode I was proud of myself, no one had even heard it yet but I felt incredible. I will admit though there were a few moments I had to talk myself down when self-doubt pops up and I start having negative self-talk and thinking like will anyone really actually care? but then when I seen the finished product it made me so proud.In the name of Self-love I will start trying to give examples of how I show myself self love each week.  I am starting to identify my inner saboteur faster and shut it down more quickly now that I realize that’s what’s happening.To be honest I almost recorded the intro to the first episode a 3rd time because I was being nit-picky and thought it felt a bit scripty but then I heard one of my fav podcast hosts say it is ...

Self-Love is Blind Trailer

My name is Jillian Gillis the host of Self-Love is Blind podcast where we discuss all things self-love related; the challenges, the self-doubt that can get in the way, sharing suggestions on ways to overcome the obstacles and build a community that encourages one another to fall in love with their true self. The foundation of the podcast will be around me sharing my story living with a disability and other challenges that life has thrown my way. I was born with a rare eye condition that leaves me with only 10% of my eye sight, making me legally blind. you might not realize it if you met me on the street though because I see well enough that I don’t need a guide dog or a white cane to get around. you won’t find me walking into things or getting lost but there are ways that it impacts my day-to-day life and I’ll be diving into those. I will be bringing on a new guest each week to discuss their unique journey with self-love and the difficulties they have faced along the way. I have a dream guest list of over 80 people I know personally that I would love to have on the show some day. Self-love is a lifelong journey and we constantly have to work at it. Your relationship within yourself is the most important one you have, you will always be the one constant in your life so nurture and be kind to yourself. We all have that negative self-talk and we ...
