Ep 55: How to Cope with a Breakup



In today's episode, I'm talking all about my own personal experience with breakups (specifically my divorce 8 years ago) and how I coped with it. 

A dear friend who just broke off her engagement recently reached out to me asking, "how was that journey after your divorce? What did that look like? Feel like? How did you handle it?"

In today's episode, I let you know, unfiltered, the highs and the lows of what I went through and how that journey of what I refer to as my 'beautiful disaster' brought me to one of the most joyous places in my life. 

Lastly, this weekend is the very first 'Activate A Life You Love' event here in Boulder, Co. If you are interested in attending this incredible conversation and learn more about the event, head here for more details!

  9. Make a list (like a kid on christmas) of all the things you desire in your ideal partner. Does this mean they will have everything? Maybe not, but often we don't even take the time to ask ourselves what it is we truly want.
