We'll start this week a little different… let's get into the mindset to thrive with Julie Ann Cairns of

Giving Yourself Permission To Thrive

Sometimes you know how to thrive in your life, but you just haven’t given yourself the deep permission to do it.

Sometimes, the thing holding you back is not a lack of knowledge. You know what to do. You’re just not allowing it to happen.

So I have a question for you: Have you given yourself permission to thrive?

Next, a podcast conversation with Dr Alexandra Solomon and Dr Thema Bryant

Coming Home to Ourselves The Path To Thriving With Dr. Thema Bryant

Dr. Thema Bryant, president of the American Psychological Association, joins Dr. Solomon for a rich conversation about how we can heal, grow, and thrive, both on the individual and community level.

They also answer a listener question about how and when to speak up in difficult family arguments about religious beliefs.

Next, logically, is Dr. Thema Bryant's book, Homecoming, a road map for dismantling the fear and shame that keep you from living a free and authentic life. Here's to thriving!

Homecoming - Overcome Fear and Trauma to Reclaim Your Whole, Authentic Self

Dr. Thema shows you how to reconnect with your authentic self and reclaim your time, your voice, your life.

Signs of disconnection from self can take many forms, including people-pleasing, depression, anxiety, and resentment.

Healing starts with recognizing and expressing emotions in an honest way and reconnecting with the neglected parts of yourself, but it can't be done in a vacuum.

Next, lessons from an elder, Maya Angelou by By meQuilibrium

The 3 Lessons Maya Angelou Taught Us About Coping

Thriving isn't exclusive to painting or poetry. It's whatever you are driven to be and do.

What Maya Angelou modeled was a complete commitment to the expression of her wonderfulness. She showed what it looked like to thrive on a grand scale.

Lastly, a throwback film… love this one! Starring Melanie Griffith and Harrison Ford

Working Girl

Melanie Griffith as Tess McGill, an ambitious secretary with a unique approach for climbing the ladder to success. When her classy, but villainous boss (Sigourney Weaver) breaks a leg skiing, Tess simply takes over her office, her apartment, even her wardrobe.

She then creates a deal with a handsome investment banker (Harrison Ford) that will either take her straight to the top - or finish her off for good.

Have a great week!


"I deserve love, friendship, and laughter, I deserve peace, grace, and rest

Not because of beauty, not because of intelligence, nor because I work hard

Not because of riches nor privilege nor stature

I deserve it because I exist

I deserve and so do you"

Tamara Charese
