    This episode #28 was so amazing – resounded with me and not necessarily how I say out loud my negative thoughts on how I am doing that day or what I’m seeing in the mirror but definitely showing on my face my dissatisfaction of my choices. Is it at all possible to get a print out of the podcast as would like to print and go through with my youngest daughter who is a visual learner the highlights I thought and see what she picks as highlights.
    Thank you so much for the informal way you chat – I could be in the room with you – nodding away and adding my story.
