If you’re feeling stuck or wondering what your next move should be, this one’s for you.
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.

Featured Review: Thank you, Janelle, for the kind words!
I’m so glad I found this podcast. Jackie style is direct on point and easy to listen to. The content is rich and relevant for women navigating life after 40 I’m in my sixties now, but these topics still relate and are so uplifting and positive. This is a must podcast for any woman over 40 and beyond.
Welcome to our very first episode of Thrive in 40, a quick tip to kickstart your week in 40 seconds or less.
In this episode, Psychotherapist Stacy Kaiser shares her top tip to help us boost self esteem, motivation and feel happier. We all want that, right?
I find that women have a bad habit of beating themselves up. They proverbially take the baseball bat and beat themselves up if they’re not happy with themselves. And what that actually does is it lowers your self esteem, impacts your ability to be motivated, and it will ultimately impact your overall happiness. So the important thing to do is to tell yourself, okay, I don’t like what I did, make the necessary changes so you don’t do it again, and then focus on moving forward with your life.
In our first episode of 2020, Jackie’s joined by guest co-host (from our own Forty Thrive community), Bonnie Frank.
Bonnie is a former teacher and college professor, turned entrepreneur, who started her online coaching and consulting business from scratch at 49.
