Feb 26, 2019
2019 is about body, mind, and
soul. These three topics are connected within all of us, because
you can’t change one without affecting the other. I am so excited
to focus on these topics. I know in 2020, when I look back at this
year, I will see a healthier, happier, more hopeful me.
The first few weeks of this
podcast were focused on the body. Now it’s time to focus on the
mind. This is a very special and personal topic for me. For years,
I was a victim to my own thoughts. What we think about is what we
become. This topic is so important that I recorded this episode,
thought about it for a week, and then did it all over
This is a topic that I have
lived and can speak about from the heart. In this episode, I talk
about retraining our minds, not believing lies others tell us, not
believing lies we tell ourselves, and what a difference our
thoughts can make in our lives. This topic is so important to me
that I’m even creating a course around it.

- [32:26] I take every thought I
have, and I make it sit down and shut up if it doesn't align with
the truth that I know to be about me.
