In this episode Rachel is joined by none other than Cheryl Strayed! Cheryl is a novelist, essayist, column writer and podcast host with the Number 1 New York Times best selling memoir “Wild” (you’ve probably seen the movie, starring Reese Witherspoon!) along with several novels under her belt. Rachel begins the episode by reminiscing on Cheryl’s novel “Tiny Beautiful Things” and how it was on her bedside table for years to support her whenever she was going through something challenging. Discussing her Dear Sugar days, Cheryl opens up about the deep and emotional messages she received and how she poured herself into this work that created the deepest sense of kinship with her readers that she has ever known. Diving into a beautiful conversation on perfectionism and how striving for unattainable balance is a form of imbalance, Cheryl and Rachel beautifully note the dualities of life - especially how they relate to the grief we experience in heartbreaking moments that stays with us for a lifetime. Release old patterns that do not serve you, try to find acceptance in every situation in life and tune in to listen to an episode with one of the most inspiring advice givers that this world has to offer.
