My family is going through a hard season as my father nears the end of his journey with Alzheimer's.

33: Are You Disqualifying Yourself? You are ALR...
This time of year really makes us think about all the reasons we aren't enough. We disqualify ourselves because we haven't learned enough, accomplished enough, look a certain way, or any other number of things that are all criticisms inside our heads. In this episode, I'm getting vulnerable with you and sharing some of the ways I disqualify myself: especially when it comes to my body. But when we disqualify ourselves, we miss out on the most beautiful experiences in life. So let me ask you: if you weren't disqualified, what amazing things would you do?

30: Is It Your Body or Is It the Bra?
We all have those days (or even seasons) when we feel like we just don't fit in. Sometimes that's social, and sometimes we physically don't feel like we fit. Trying on bras can be a big challenge, because there are so many styles and sizes and it can be overwhelming. When it's hard to find a bra that fits, we can feel like we're the problem. But I promise, you are not the problem. Your body is not a problem. It's just the bra.
