Episode 41: Welcome to Gratitude Builds Fortitude. It All Starts Here.

Jan 16, 2023


Do you think gratitude is just making a list of three things or saying that you're grateful for something and moving on? If this sounds like you, you're missing out on what gratitude really is and what it can do to change your life completely. In this episode, we will answer the question, ‘what exactly does it mean to build gratitude with fortitude?’ and discuss how you can use this as your new superpower on your healing journey.


How do we get there? Well, let me show you.


 Together we unpack:

  • Life before my diagnosis (2:08)
  • My 39th birthday “gift” of breast cancer (2:52)
  • A Hashimoto’s diagnosis and a dismissive doctor (7:08)
  • What rock bottom #3 looked like and why it was so different (8:25)
  • What I did differently to start moving the needle (and you can do this too!) (12:47)
  • Life lessons from Mama Fortitude (14:40)
  • Connecting the dots - and why it didn't work the first time (15:55)
  • How you can start to put the puzzle pieces together for your own health (20:04)


What's the transformation you're hoping for in your life? Well, now it's your turn. What is it that you want to achieve? If you are eager to raise your hand and be ready to do whatever it takes, I am here to be your coach, your mentor, and your champion who believes in you until you can believe in yourself. Your next step is to TAKE THIS FUN 2-MINUTE QUIZ and find out how much gratitude and grit you have.
