Podcast Recap

Our 20th anniversary trip inspires me to ponder how ‘all or nothing’ thinking has screwed me in the past and to celebrate our improvement in getting off of that roller coaster. A Whoppin’ Big Bravery shout-out goes to Michelle for courageously calling the bravery hotline and thanks to Sue and Cheryl for welcoming new listener, Heather and new Spark People team member, Christina.
