“I lost an entire six hours of my day. One minute I was holding my husbands finger and the next minute I was blinking half awake in the ICU saying I was nauseous.”


Happy season 2 my Live Your F*ck Yes Lifers!

Holy balls, it’s good to be back. I’ve missed you guys.

Season 2 is about to be incredible so hold onto your hats — the lineup of conversations are seriously so juicy and amazing and I can’t wait for you guys to hear them.

But before we get there, I thought it was only fitting to kick off the start of season 2 with the true tell all about my preventative double mastectomy and what it’s really been like.

So many of you have been asking about the nitty gritty deets so today, we get into all of that and more.


Things I cover in today’s episode.

  • Navigating trauma and facing your fears head on

  • Fears I had heading into surgery, body dysmorphia and sex

  • Breast cancer awareness, the BRCA gene, major surgery

  • What I did to prep for it

  • The nitty gritty of my personal choices

  • What recovery has really looked like


Episode #42: Owning Your Full Potential and Facing Your Upper Limits | A Solo Episode

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


“It could envision myself having these dreams and hitting these goals, and really embodying my full potential as a human being. I could see her and she felt so freaking close. And then I got scared. And I immediately pulled back into my hole and thought 'I can’t do that. I can’t be that person.’”


Have you ever been afraid of being successful?

Of standing in your unapologetic truth?

It can be so terrifying to rise up into our full potential. And so often, we let that fear hold us back from taking any action and instead, we tell ourselves why we’re not good enough and self sabotage from moving in that direction.

I had an unexpected experience with this this week that threw me for a loop in ways I didn’t anticipate. And holy shiz balls did I hit that upper limit ceiling around the prospect of owning my full potential — because I finally had clarity around what that could look like this weekend and it scared the living crap out of me.

More in this week’s episode my loves.

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


“When you have a mutation of one of these genes, that’s when you have a significant risk of developing one of those cancers in your lifetime.”


I was so honored to share my full story about the BRCA gene and my decision to get a preventative double mastectomy later this year on my friend Jen Wille’s podcast a few weeks back and I knew I needed to share this conversation with all of you.

This is the most vulnerable I’ve felt all year. And I would not be me if I didn’t share that with you.

So here goes. Dig in, and if you have any questions about anything I talk about, please do not hesitate to reach out. I am always here for you.

Here are a few things we discuss in todays episode:

  • My one non negotiable to start my day every day

  • The power (and fear) attached to sharing stories while navigating it in real time

  • My intention word of 2018 and the irony of it all

  • The ins and outs of the BRCA gene and how it impacts women vs. men

  • Navigating the idea of having kids now

  • The options for reducing your risk when you have the gene

  • Facing things you’re absolutely terrified of head on

  • Talking about my BOOBS in detail

  • The exact surgery I’m getting

    Episode #6: Facing Fear Head On | Solo Episode

    PODCAST BLOG PHOTO.png

    EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


    "Some days you feel on top of the world and some days you feel like a hot a** mess. And sometimes you go through something in your life that completely knocks you off your feet -- in amazing ways and in terrifying ways -- and I'm facing the latter right now." 

    This is the last thing I thought I'd be sharing with you on the podcast today.

    On February 6th, 2018, two days after my 27th birthday, I got a call that changed everything. That shook me to my core and has left me processing and spinning and navigating this new found identity.

    I almost didn't share this. 

    But it's my mission to be transparent AF and share the mess and goddamn if this is not the messiest thing in my own life right now.

    And I hope it brings some light to yours. That you feel just a little less alone. And that if you're going through something like this or know someone in your life that is, that this gives you the strength to know that whatever you are facing, you are STRONG enough to navigate it.

    Feel the feels, take action and show up for your goddamn life.

    Here are a few things I touch on in todays episode:

    • Why I'm in the midst of another "quarter life crisis"
    • The power of your gut
    • Why I chose the word UNAPOLOGETIC for 2018
    • The fear I'm facing every single freaking day
    • The power of a shower sob fest
    • Choosing to be a warrior, not a worrier

    •
