You’re tuning into The Monster Theory Podcast, Episode #9.
When you are faced with news that can shatter your world, it is in those moments that you get still and get in alignment with God, the universe, and your higher power! My guest, Rosanne Pappas, is joining us again today to continue the conversation we had a few weeks ago about the transformative power of faith, resilience, and the unshakable calling of the human spirit.
In Part 1 of a 2 Part interview, Rosanne shared her story of almost losing her son to a rare autoimmune disease and how that journey changed her life and made her reflect on not only life in general but her sense of self, her higher power, and her faith.
I was so moved by Rosanne’s story that I just had to have her back on because she is just a FORCE and shows such grace and vulnerability that it is so dang gone captivating! So if you missed Part 1, you’ve got to go tune in to it and you also need to stay tuned for Part 2… So without further ado, let’s dive right in to yet another AMAZING talk with Rosanne!
Tune in to the episode below:
- Who is Rosanne Pappas? Rosanne Pappas graduated from Loyola University in New Orleans with a B.A. in Mass Communications. She has been in the management and marketing industry for over 25 years and is an experienced speaker & writer on the subject of inter-personal relationships within the family and in the workplace. Rosanne has four children and has been married for over 34 years. She shares her story of personal suffering that led her to a series of conversions and blessings. Rosanne is also an artist who desires to express the intrinsic beauty of each person.
- When trying to look inside yourself and practice self-reflection, how does one strip away themselves? Well ask yourself: how do you feel & what do you want? What is it that you are longing for? The more you get to know yourself, the easier it will be to look inside yourself and strip away the things holding you back and weighing you down.
- Why do we practice ‘emotional dumping’ & how can we work through it? First, find someone to work through it with – whether it’s a friend, lover, partner, therapist, whoever it needs to be for you – don’t isolate yourself as that will only force you to keep dumping on everyone else. Ultimately, you will begin to sort through your issues and then you can decide how you want to handle them & only then will you be ready to stop dumping, and instead choose to just be present in the moment, no matter what’s going on in your life.
- Rosanne says, “Let your feelings & longings light the path for you. Remember that we’re all small and unknowing and in that is freedom to live, to love, to play, to make mistakes, to grow from our mistakes, and to lead us to what the real purpose in our life is. Have the grace for yourself to be right where you are & to go forward wherever that takes you & then offer that same grace to others as they try to figure it out too.”
