On today's mini-episode we're talking all about constraints, limitations, and how to have an imagination based on *hope* for your future. There are three main points I want to make, to help us get out of the "woe is me" mindset. So listen below to hear those thoughts and my answer to whether I think imagination is insanity or not.
Liis Windischmann is with us today! Liis is a curvy model and a TV personality who is a massive advocate for wellness, body love, and consciously creating epic lives. Today Liis and I are talking about Power of Choice. I knew she'd be a great person for this subject because there's no way someone would choose to advocate for anything if they didn't know how to utilize their personal power of choice. But Liis and I also discuss the smaller, more common versions of utilizing your power of choice. So if you're feeling a little bit boxed into a corner today or like you're being victimized in some form or fashion (even by your own self!) then today's episode is for you.

Deepak collects little bits of wisdom from all over the world and that's what he's here to share with us!
Today we're gonna talk about some subjects that don't always come across as socially acceptable. But this isn't necessarily unusual for this show nor is it unusual for our guest today. Alexandra Harbushka joins us to talk about her new podcast and community: Life with Herpes. I think we're all in *some* closet at some point in our lives. So the process of making the big reveal to people whose opinions you care about - that's a really scary and brave thing to do! Without further ado, I give Alexandra Harbuska who will tell out all about it!

After overcoming drug addiction, a diagnosis of PTSD after the war in Iraq, and a battle with alcohol, Akshay Nanavati has since explored the most hostile environments on the planet. I wanted Akshay to join us because we haven't featured a perspective of PTSD yet and I appreciated Akshay's particular experience and journey. Also, the Dalai Lama wrote the foreword to his book and I really wanted to know how that came about!
