Turia Pitt shares stories of resilience that inspire you to take on life’s biggest challenges.

    The case for stoicism —is hope overrated?

    The case for stoicism —is hope overrated?

    Brigid Delaney wishes she'd tapped into stoicism a lot earlier. Its principles have helped her take more risks, worry less, and find tranquility. In a new book, Brigid outlines how this ancient Greek philosophy can be applied to help you in everyday life. I loved wrestling with these ideas. Letting go of hope? Imaging my child dying via 'negative visualisation' so I live in the moment? Difficult stuff! I hope these tools are useful or spark ideas for how you can approach the challenges going on in your world right now.

    She laid charges on her own son to teach him accountability

    She laid charges on her own son to teach him accountability

    How much adversity can one person face in a lifetime?

    Marlene Parrott from Geelong could test the limit. Her story begins in an orphanage, where she was sent when her parents were no longer able or willing to care for her. Things turned around when she met her curly-haired partner of 38-years, Dale. They had two beautiful kids. Both kids faced their own hurdles though, including drug use and tragically, Marlene's daughter Maddison was murdered in 2018.

    Leigh Campbell and the beauty routine "more important than brushing your teeth"

    Leigh Campbell and the beauty routine "more important than brushing your teeth"

    I really enjoyed hanging out with You Beauty's Leigh Campbell. After several miscarriages, Leigh decided to go down the IVF path. If you don't know, IVF can be a difficult for lots of reasons; injections, hormones, cost, and no guarantee that it'll lead to a child. Leigh documented the journey, which became more complex than she imagined when — after everything she'd been through (and almost giving up) — she became pregnant naturally. Also, Leigh's top beauty tips for summer.

    When terror struck our island paradise — 20 years since the Bali bombings

    When terror struck our island paradise — 20 years since the Bali bombings

    Ali Donaldson was one of the first journalists on the ground after the Bali bombings in October, 2002. Twenty years on, Ali shares never before heard detail from investigators, medics, and survivors who were there when the horrific explosion ripped through the Kuta night district. Bali is a fav holiday destination for so many of us and the impact of this terrorist attack reverberated far beyond the 88 Australians who died that night.

    Surfing legend Layne Beachley: from liposuction to falling in love with her body

    Surfing legend Layne Beachley: from liposuction to falling in love with her body

    "If I had my time again, there's no way I'd go through with that," Australian surfing icon Layne Beachley tells me, referring to her biggest regret, which she also describes as a valuable lesson. "I had to change the relationship with myself and when I did that, things naturally fell into place." It was one of many moments that struck me (in between all of the surfing advice I was trying to milk!)... You'll also hear how Layne learned to stop blaming everyone else for her mistakes and why she equates motherhood with loss and how that spurred her to become a world champion.

    Brooke Blurton on growing up without privilege: "I did the best I could and that's enough"

    Brooke Blurton on growing up without privilege: "I did the best I could and that's enough"

    Brooke Blurton is known for being the first star of the The Bachelorette to give roses to both men and women. The pansexual First Nations icon has waved the flag for representation — but how much has this responsibility weighed her down? It's a thought the 27-year-old links back to her turbulent childhood, growing up with the loss of her mother and grandmother. We talk about intergenerational trauma, her self-care routine (or lack of), and also, how she ended up on The Bachelorette in the first place.
