Integrity is like Honesty on Steroids - it is a whole new level of honesty that encompasses being honest with yourself (even when no one is looking). Kelley Kosow’s new book, The Integrity Advantage is chock full of inspiring stories from herself and other women who have found their best selves from the inside out, instead of the other way around. Kelley teaches women how to love themselves with the same love they would give to others. She coaches that it’s ok to be human, but that our goal of our souls is to evolve. In this podcast we not only talk about her book, but how we can add in self-care and gratitude to our lives to create the highest level of self-satisfaction, confidence, hope, empowerment, and above all, INTEGRITY. Come on in and enjoy this beautiful podcast with the CEO of The Ford Institute, Kelley Kosow.
Empath’s and HSP’s (Highly Sensitive People) were a conversation I had wanted to have for months now and I was honored to have Priscilla Pancoast-Crockett step up to the plate and talk about not only her own experiences as an HSP, but all about her new book, Care and Feeding for the Highly Sensitive Soul - A Real Talk and In Depth Guide for those who care for, protect, and support an empath, intuitive, or otherwise defined highly sensitive person. This podcast is a fun, empowering, enlightening talk about this subject. In my learning, I realized that I am definitely at least part HSP, but more importantly I learned that a very close female relative of mine is most definitely an HSP and I was able to learn how I can best support her in her journey. Priscilla is upbeat, totally knowledgable on the subject and simply a joy to visit with. Enjoy this amazing LLS podcast episode!
There is a quote from one of my favorite books, The Count of Monte Cristo, that goes like this: “There is neither happiness nor unhappiness in this world; there is only the comparison of one state with another. Only a man who has felt ultimate despair is capable of ultimate bliss.” Dotsie Bausch reminds me of this quote. From a debilitating eating disorder and unsuccessful suicide attempts to being a 7-time USA Cycling Champion and silver medalist in the 2012 London Olympics, this lady is living the life of ultimate bliss. I can’t wait to see her in the upcoming movie, Game Changers coming out this summer and if you really want to get to know her better, follow her on social media and learn about her last week’s rescue of a baby duckling! This lady is for real and I know you’re gonna LOVE her in this week’s LLS Podcast!
Truly you are guided to what you’re meant to do if you but only listen. Dr. Rosane’s favorite quote says, “Nothing changes until you change. Everything changes once you change.” She is the epitome of her favorite quote and I can’t wait for you to hear about her beginnings in Rio de Janeiro, then to Germany, the University of Illinois, and now UCDavis in Sacramento as the Director of Integrative Nutrition. She is loving, kind, a lover of books (consuming 3-5 per week), and is encouraging in wherever your journey is currently taking you. We talk about her twin sister, her education, her whole-foods, plant-based lifestyle, and of course the answers to Lemonade Moments at the end that have us laughing and sharing like women should! We are stronger together as women and this interview shows that!
