#147 How Toxic People Affect your Health and What to do About it

7/16/2021
There’s no one thing that causes cancer and there’s no one thing that heals it. Like life, it’s complicated. We have to consider medications, exercise, supplementation, stress reduction, and relationships just to name a few things. Some relationships are heartwarming, and they make our lives better even if we only see the person occasionally. Then, some relationships are draining, toxic and unhealthy. We can’t overlook the impact that these relationships have on our health and our...

#146 Ten Lessons From Ten Years of Surviving Breast Cancer

7/9/2021
It’s hard to believe that ten years have passed since the first time I heard the words, “You have Breast Cancer.” During that time, I’ve learned some powerful lessons. I’ve shifted the way I think about cancer, I’ve supported and learned from hundreds of other women in my workshops, webinars, coachings, and programs. Now, I work every day to support my body’s ability to heal from a stage 4 recurrence in October of 2020. In this episode, I’ll share ten of the most powerful lessons...

#145 Insights on Lifestyle and Healing from the Land of Fire and Ice

7/3/2021
Getting to experience the amazing country of Iceland and see the slower pace of life, the clean air and water, and the fresh delicious food really got me to thinking about lifestyle and healing.

6/18/2021
How long will it take before you choose happiness? Can you be happy if you’re achy, overweight, or fatigued? Do you tell yourself things should be different by now?

#142 Moving Beyond the Cancer Victim Mentality

6/11/2021
When you’re thrown into the role of a breast cancer patient in a world of foreign terminology and scary outcomes, it’s easy to feel like a victim. Going through breast cancer treatment changes your life, but if you feel like you have no choice in the matter, recovering from treatment can be even more difficult. Feelings of powerlessness can linger long after active treatment and leave you feeling angry and resentful. So, what can you do? Start with owning the tough choices you had to...

#141 Keeping it Simple to Support Your Happiness

6/5/2021
If there’s anything I loved about the pandemic lock downs, it was the forced simplicity of life. There weren’t so many things to do, for many of us, so we didn’t overwhelm ourselves. We didn’t spend so much time in traffic or we didn’t have to go to office or holiday parties that we dreaded to begin with. So why do we overfill our lives and then beat ourselves up if we don’t have the energy to do all the things? Simplicity and the absence of overwhelm are components of a peaceful life...

#140 What if Strong Isn't What You Think?

5/28/2021
Is it strong not to cry? Is it weak to be vulnerable? The stories we tell ourselves about what strength is and how we have to show up in the world could actually be stopping you from living the happy peaceful life you deserve. I'll share my experience with changing my perception of what strong really means and the suffering that I see women endure because of the way they think of being strong. I'll even give you a simple exercise to help you see how your thoughts on "strong" impact your...

#139 Supporting Your Healing and Your Life with Abundant Thinking

5/21/2021
Wouldn’t it be amazing if you expected good things to come to you? There’s no question that breast cancer pulls the rug out from under our lives and introduces a lot of fear. But, if you don’t take the time to recognize that thinking and work on changing your expectations, you can get really stuck in fear. There’s also the fact that life may have been great before cancer and you want it back. When you get stuck in that thinking, you take away from the beauty and abundance that could be...

#136 The Sick Role...What it is and How to Get Out of it

4/30/2021
Getting a diagnosis of breast cancer is difficult and traumatizing on its own. Then, when you realize that the management of this disease goes on for years, it can result in frustrations and tons of resistance…even toward therapies that can save your life. I got to wondering why that is. Why do we place demands on our body to heal and perform before it’s ready? And do we choose to look at ourselves as sick rather than working on our healing and wellness. In this show I talk about the...

When was the last time you took time to dream? When was the last time you even thought about creating time to dream? Our lives, visions, and dreams can get lost in the mechanics of life.

#133 Why Would You Tell Yourself That?

4/9/2021
When powerful emotions take us by surprise it can be the result of an actual devastating thing happening in life. But often, it’s the result of what we’re telling ourselves. Someone says something, we tell ourselves that’s a reflection on us and we end up in tears or angry. Something happens that we tell ourselves isn’t fair and somehow that gets tangled up in our value as a human being. This week I’ll share an experience that happened to me where I caught myself questioning the value of...

#132 How to Stop Shoulding on yourself

4/2/2021
There are some words we say to ourselves that have way more power than we give them credit for. Should, for instance, packs a powerful punch of judgment and shame. But maybe even worse. When you “should” on yourself, you move right past what you’re feeling, or the thoughts that are stopping you from doing something in the first place. So, what do you do? Do you shame yourself for not acting or thinking or feeling like “they” tell say you should? I have another suggestion that comes...

#131 Breast Cancer Recovery 101

3/25/2021
After doing some amazing work in the Better Than Before Breast Cancer Workshop, I got to thinking what a powerful and often overlooked piece of recovery thought work is. Of course, we survivors hear, "Think positive." But a healthy mindset is so much more than that and clinging to the idea that you have to stay positive can result in avoiding all the emotions that you do feel. Another place we can get stuck is in worrying about all the physical things…what food to eat, what vitamins...
