Mary has Saved my Life!

I found Mary the day after I decided (on my own terms) to actively pursue a life on the other side of alcohol. Mary is amazing! She is so in tune with what I was already feeling in my heart and validated my thoughts and feelings to the point I was in tears (happy tears). I was SO in need of a voice of support and I have found the biggest gift by finding Mary and her podcast. Thank you Mary!!! You are a savior. You are so well spoken and so down to earth. Your voice is my voice in my head that I just couldn’t articulate and get out. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️ You make me feel heard and understood and I am well on my way to living my best life. Your work helps women in so many more ways than just “quitting alcohol”. Your holistic approach is truly a godsend!

It’s the Brca test…and it saves lives!

So I tuned in since I’m a sober gal and was curious. In the first ten minutes Mary says she doesn’t like fear based information. Ok I agree. She then goes on to say that the brca gene test -she doesn’t even know what it’s called so she says “ummm you know that breast cancer test..like why would anyone want to know that?” Ma’am do you know how many women’s lives have been saved by knowing they carry the gene for breast cancer? Which is also the gene for ovarian cancer the most deadly cancer for women. Being a podcast host in this vein carries responsibility. Responsibility to not negate important medical tests and instead be informed.
And of course the other problem with this podcast is the delivery and the speaking manner. Vocal fry and over enunciation is really annoying in a grown woman. Anyway I sure hope no one listening ignores their medical familial history because of this woo woo delulu host

She’s inside my brain!

I love how Mary explains why we do somethings and struggle with other things. I especially love how she helps us connect with our bigger life desires. I always find a nugget (or multiples) in every episode. Thanks Mary!
