Giving Yourself Permission With Meaghan Douglas M.Ed.
Thank you so much for joining us today for another episode of What's Your Why. I'm not sure if you've had a chance to tap into our latest episode launch just last week, the brainchild of an exciting collaboration between What's Your Why? and Saratoga Horse Shows, which supports an event aptly named the Women in Business Spectacular.
The Women in Business Spectacular is an equestrian competition, which happens from July 13th to 17th at White Hollow Farm in Saratoga, New York. Part of the event's intention is not only to operate with a predominantly female staff but also bring attention to women in business, inside and outside of the equestrian spectrum.
What's Your, Why partnered with Women in Business to play our part and bring you stories from women who play, played and will continue to play a role in business associated with equestrian sport. If you have a chance, give it a listen. We'll be launching weekly on Wednesdays until July 13th for the arrival of the event.
Now, back to what you tuned in for today. Megan Douglas, from Coaching with Meg joined us in March, where we chatted about the concept of top five. We had such an abundance of positive feedback after that episode that we asked Meg to join us again. During our conversation in March, we touched briefly on the idea of giving yourself permission so I asked her if we could dive a little deeper into that, thinking that the practice of it might help more than just myself.

Overcoming Setbacks With Jayne Pritchard
In this episode, we were fortunate to interview Jayne Pritchard, a news anchor at CTV News in Barrie and an author. Jayne talks about her journey through breast cancer and her recent book https://www.amazon.ca/Breast-Cancer-Diagnosis-Overcoming-Setbacks/dp/1778350488 (After the Diagnosis - One Woman's Story of Overcoming Setbacks)
An excerpt from Jayne's book:
My name is Jayne Pritchard. You might recognize me as one of the news anchors from CTV News in Barrie. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and have written about my experience and the importance of looking after yourself through this journey.
The reason I wrote this book is because I want women to ensure they get regular mammograms, and whatever other diagnostic tests their doctor recommends. Early detection is key to a positive outcome. I almost put off my mammogram, that discovered an early form of an aggressive type of breast cancer. I would hate to think of what would have happened if I had left it another year.
Women also need to know that it’s not the end of the world when they get a breast cancer diagnosis. Fear, sadness, anxiety and even anger are all natural emotions. You need to give yourself permission to feel that way. On my journey I learned so much. This knowledge is to share with others, not to keep to myself.
In this book, you will find out about the treatments I underwent instead of chemotherapy, and the immune boosting supplements, many of which can kill cancer cells. I feel traditional Western medicine and alternative therapies both have a place and can support each other. I share my “Top 10 Health and Wellness Tips” to support your health as you heal and to live a vibrant life going forward.
You’ll also discover that in this wonderful Universe there are spiritual guides who are always with you, and your loved ones who have passed on, never really left. May those stories inspire you. Your mind may also be opened to something brand new and life-changing because, after all, life does change after breast cancer.
