Why Bother? Who knew two little words could have so much power? On this week’s episode, Jackie talks with author Jennifer Louden, author of Why Bother? Discover the Desire for What’s Next.
If you’re feeling stuck or wondering what your next move should be, this one’s for you.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever looked at a woman who does yoga and envied not only how grounded, centered and balanced she is, but those arms and shoulders are serious workout goals.
Now imagine the results you could see if you were to do Face Yoga. Yes, face yoga. It’s a thing.
The team at Face Yoga Method reached out to me a while back and introduced me to this phenomenon. Led by founder Fumiko Takatsu, Face Yoga Method is an all natural practice that consists of non invasive facial exercises that tone facial muscles, improve complexion and smooth wrinkles. It’s a holistic approach focusing on mind/body/spirit and boasts side effects like amazing posture and more self confidence. Yes, please!
I will admit. I was skeptical.
But take a listen to my interview with Fumiko and it’s like DUH! Of course this works!
Following a nearly fatal car accident that threw her hip, shoulder and head off-kilter, Fumiko developed what is today The Face Yoga Method. With over 80 facial postures geared toward working on any area of the face, she has helped men and women worldwide replace cosmetic procedures 100% naturally!
“Thank you Jackie for being the voice for all of us on the Forty Thrive Podcast. I truly admire you and everything you have done throughout your career and on. Just when I was ready to close the door on podcasts for me – over forty mom, I found you just in time. Thank you for making me feel normal, valuable and heard.”
Meet Dr. Paria Hassouri, a pediatrician, mother of three, transgender rights activist, and author of Found in Transition: A Mother’s Evolution During Her Child’s Gender Change. I met Paria in 2019 while my family was going through our own transition, when one of our children came out as transgender.
Paria and her family were a little bit ahead of us, going through a transition of their own with their teenage daughter. Now while you may not be familiar with transgender children or transgender issues and challenges, Paria’s story is universal to any mom, really any human, who at one time believed that life would look one way until a bomb is completely dropped. Through Paria’s story, you can feel her slowly begin to grow, find acceptance and express the unconditional love that was always within her.
But it wasn’t pretty and it wasn’t easy.
