Radically Loved® with Rosie Acosta

Hello Friends, I’m Rosie Acosta. I am a Meditation Teacher; Speaker and Author of You Are Radically Loved: A healing journey to self-love. I grew up in East Los Angeles during the 92 La Riots and it set me on a troubled path for many years. I didn’t grow up with mentors in my life, so I turned to reading as many books as I possibly could to learn about life’s purpose. In my journey as a First Gen-Mexican American, I found having these conversations gave me insight, support, and inspiration. So, I decided to create a place where I could share these conversations with my community. The Radically Loved Podcast was born! How do we create a radically loved life? Come have a sit with me so we can discover all things mindfulness, spirituality, self-love, and overall healthy living. Please be sure to share the episodes that you love and also leave us a review!

Amidst the worldly chaos, radical love and understanding are what we need most. However, we struggle with attaining one thing — contentment. Being in a state of contentment does not equal to idle actions and remaining static. It means accepting what we have and where we are, while radiating positivity and kindness to those around you.

In today's episode of Wisdom Wednesday, Tessa and Rosie highlight steps we can take to be in a state of contentment.
