Life’s not easy for anyone. We all experience difficult people and disappointing situations. Some of these can really hurt, and bring us down … or show us new and better ways.

When times are tough, and we feel like we’re going to explode, meltdown or give up, there’s a choice to be made. Some of us opt for another glass of wine or big piece of chocolate cake to relieve the pain. But there is a price to be paid for "eating our feelings" or drowning them in alcohol. We really don't want those extra pounds or a headache in the morning.

Our podcast is fun conversations filled with better ideas, fresh attitudes and inspiring real-life stories to help turn disappointment into hope and melt pain away for good. It's friends helping friends to get through and get over negative emotions and crappy feelings and learn how to really heal our wounds and move on. It's all about living a healthy life full of peace and joy, even when it seems impossible.

We hope you'll give one of our episodes a listen. We're pretty sure you'll discover something that will put you on a new path that will leave you feeling better about yourself and your life.
