Takeaways from this episode

1) Know what you value in life, and then live your life by those values!

2) It’s okay not to know what you’re doing! (special shoutout to artist and maker Halyn Erickson)

3) The body and mind are deeply connected. We’ve all heard ‘mind over matter’ but sometimes when we’re not listening to our body’s needs, it becomes matter over mind!
