In this episode Caitlin MacTavish and I have a vulnerable conversation about the ins and outs of the experience of writing THE TRIFECTA OF JOY book. Writing a book can very much be like the process of birth with its aches, pains, and fears as well as elation, excitement, and anticipation. We discuss the complexities of: · Perfectionism · The inner critic at work · Moving through trauma · Letting go · The power of your people · Gratitude · The impact of being a helper in the world And getting ahead of burnout Caitlin gives her inside view of the book as someone that was part of the feedback and editing process, sharing her own insights gleaned from THE TRIFECTA OF JOY. 2% of sales of the TRIFECTA OF JOY go directly to supporting the Wood’s Homes Youth Shelter.

Creating a life with purpose, intention, and clarity starts with where you are right now. We often notice that there are many analogies in life that we can use to construct meaning and purpose in our lives. Nature, Lego, Computer operating systems, even tissue!

Stress is a reality for so many people these days, and yet, the path forward through it can seem so complex, and sometimes even debilitating. In this episode we talk about how we think stress is in our heads, but when we pay attention, we notice how it show up in the body.
Can a moment as a child change the trajectory of your life? In this episode our guest Swanette Kuntz talks about the wtf’s that have aligned to help her realize the importance of living her very best life and following her soul path.
Sometimes we become aware of “that feeling”. It’s that knowing. The situation we find ourselves in could be better. We deserve more. The knowing that it may be time to move let go and move on. Sometimes it sounds like: “There has got to be something more than this”. Change is scary, and staying stuck is even scarier!
Addiction comes in various forms and is pervasive in our society as it is often used to escape from one or several feelings. But what do you do if your loved one has an addiction, and you’re just don’t know what to do. Candace Plattor, founder of Love with Boundaries, and I talk about the path of support and love of the loved one of an addict, and how to enable active recovery versus active addiction.

Grief and loss are a part of life, yet death and the wash of feelings and change that comes with it simply isn’t sexy to talk about. When we do explore grief, it if often cushioned around trying to make things “fine”.
Guilt, shame, pain, and anger are natural reactions to trauma. In this inspiring conversation with Anna Maydonova we talk about her life of trauma and the growing voice within that she recognized when she discovered a safe place to share. When a voice is silenced by others and then self, it creates a burden of growing shame, guilt, pain and anger – the destruction of judgement.
This conversation is about the very real relationship we can have with our bodies and desire to lose weight, and rather than embracing a battle, inviting a space of love – to love yourself light.
