    This one is about contrary action. Sometimes the kindest, gentlest thing to do is nothing. Not picking up your addiction. Abstaining from the actions that lead to the headspace that causes cravings.

    Hey, Cool Life! Episode 101

    This one is about how to handle options. About what to do when you have to make a decision and the stakes are high. It’s about how to choose without the obsession, sleepless number crunching and asking a million questions that other people often don’t have the answers to because they’re not f’in clairvoyant. It’s about trusting that you’ll be okay no matter the outcome.

I needed this...

Everything being discussed and the free flow, soothing way in which it’s communicated has changed my every day. The length of each ep is perfect and bite-sized but it’s thorough, never feels hasty or that she’s rushing out the door. The way Mary approaches and frames things is so smart and right on. I really appreciate what she’s doing and having this show in my life.
