Podcast: EP 77 Transforming Your Pain with Kristine Carlson

What happens when you lose the love of your life?

 

This is what today’s guest discovered after her husband Richard died suddenly at age 45. She has written so much wisdom on this topic and I love hearing her insight and spirit speak on transformation, grief, and joy.

Kristine Carlson is a New York Times bestselling author, best known for her work with her late husband, Dr. Richard Carlson in the Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff series—with over 25 million books sold worldwide. She is a renowned speaker, inspiring podcast host, retreat leader and blogger. Her mission is to help women transform from heartbreak and loss to live their best lives with joy, gratitude, renewed passion and purpose. With her resilient spirit, powerful presence and heart-centered teaching, she guides women through the challenges and transitions of middle life and awakens them to their truth and the expression of their highest selves.

This conversation is about healing, transformation, success, trusting the process, and being open to joy. I hope it speaks to you as much as it spoke to me.

“We have to make the decision to become the hero.”

Podcast: EP 72 Healing the Heart

“What invites the cozy into your life?”

 

This is a question that popped into my mind as I was preparing this episode about healing your heart. The topic came to me as I was thinking about what my audience needed to hear right now, and I know it’s meant for you or someone you know. I love self-care, as you know, but this specific kind of self-care is extra important when you have been heart-hurt.

In this episode, I share 5 ways that I have learned to heal my own heart in times of challenge, pain or adversity. I hope they support you or someone you love in their season of healing, because it’s possible.

Podcast: EP 71 The Morning Walk with Libby DeLana

Podcast: EP 71 The Morning Walk with Libby DeLana

Imagine taking a walk every day for 10 years.

 

That’s exactly what my new friend Libby has done for the past decade. She is an incredible creative director by profession, but she has recently written a book about what she has learned from getting outside to walk every day.

Libby Park DeLana is an award-winning executive creative director, designer/art director by trade, who has spent her 30+ year career in the ad world. She was the Director of Design at MullenLowe for 15 years, then went on to co-found the agency Mechanica. Libby’s work has been featured in The One Show Awards, CannesLions, and in publications including D&AD, Fast Company, Ageist, Graphis, and Communication Arts. She has been profiled by the BBC Radio 4 series The Chain and several podcasts.

Libby is committed to purpose-driven organizations. She is currently on the Board of Directors for BlinkNow and The Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center, and she is an advisor to It’s August. An advocate for female leadership, an aspiring pilot, avid fly fisherwoman, fan of a strong cup of tea and mum to two tall, smart, kind men.

She started walking in 2011 and hasn’t missed a day since; as a result, she has walked the circumference of the earth.

This conversation is a beautiful reminder of how we can radically transform our lives through the simplest habits and what happens when we practice staying grounded.

“Staying grounded adds magic to any day.”
