RAWTALK 17: TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL - ANISSA & ELLEN RAW

It's very rare to meet someone who immediately touches your soul & blesses your life with her presence. Actress, writer & soon-to-be director, Lisa Arrindell is just that person. This beautiful & wise woman motivates so many with her call to get up, get out & live life to the fullest. Basking in the glow of her grace & positivity, the ladies talk to Lisa about the trials & sense of accomplishment in finishing at least one daily task, becoming more aware of your totality as a person, and the fear of standing up & owning your true calling. @anissaellenraw @anissamason @ellennicoll @lisaarrindell

RAWTALK 16: THE POWER OF "NO" - ANISSA & ELLEN RAW

What is it about people pleasers & the word "no"? Why is it so difficult to tell someone no if you honestly can't help them? Or cannot commit to what they are asking? Why can't the words "I don't know" come out of their mouths? If you look up "People Pleaser" in the dictionary… well if you could look it up… you'd see Anissa & Ellen's pictures. Big ass tired smiles plastered on their faces. Bloodshot eyes from staying up late to try to manage too many things. Greasy hair with roots showing & chipped nail polish because they're too busy with their side hustles to give themselves time to see what the inside of a salon looks like. Life can consist of long days that leave you completely exhausted & unfulfilled if you let it. And you miss out on a lot of good shit if you are constantly doing for others & neglecting yourself. So today, boys & girls, the word of the day is "NO!". @anissaellenraw @anissamason @ellennicoll
