    make room for the new, resolve - I still believe most of us choose to improve our lives, for the better- with time

    goals 2022 write them down - three, six, nine, twelve months, check them off

    finances, get them in order be responsible for a change - let go of spending & begin the savings for future goals

    everything can be perceived as gray - its not black and white

    all is full circle & karma enlightens each of us - pray for those who choose to criticize you

    pay your dues - where can we all find good assistants this days? - put in the time before you give yourself
    a senior title

    thank those who helped you along the way, a simple prayer will do & pay it forward

    Our Greatest Fear —Marianne Williamson

    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

    It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

    We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
    talented and fabulous?

    Actually, who are you not to be?

    You are a child of God.

    Your playing small does not serve the world.

    There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

    people won't feel insecure around you.

    We were born to make manifest the glory of
    God that is within us.

    It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

    And as we let our own light shine,
    we unconsciously give other people
    permission to do the same.

    As we are liberated from our own fear,
    Our presence automatically liberates others."

    —Marianne Williamson - she's my all time fave xx ck

A Wonderful Podcast!

What a positive, comforting and inspirational podcast! Candice is so genuinely compassionate, real and emotionally connected and so much of what she says really resonates with me. Thank you so much for sharing your stories, your advice and inspiring me to be a better human being 🙏

Outdated, tone deaf advice

Listened to two episodes just finished the weight loss one. All i felt was this is someone who doesn’t acknowledge their privilege and that not everyone has the freedom of cooking every meal. Also saying healthy means long toned legs is not accurate. My friends are powerlifters with super strong muscular legs and they’re not unhealthy. Just overall weird.

Perfect for every stage of life

I wish I was more consistent listening to this podcast, but no matter how many times I stop and pick it back up, I feel like it ALWAYS aligns with whatever I have going on in my life. She offers comfort, reassurance, and inspires in every episode. It truly does feel like she is one of the most honest and trustworthy friends I’ve ever had.

Can’t wait to see how this continues to grow and assist me with all of my life changes. From one hapa to another, love you always Candice 💖
