Becoming your own best friend with special guest Leslie Lindsey Davis
In a world that can sometimes feel distant and cold, it's comforting to realize that to find your best advocate you only need to look in the mirror. You are guaranteed to always be by your side for the rest of your life. But sometimes life tosses us curve balls and it can be difficult to get back in touch with yourself on a healthy level. In this episode of Curves Welcome, my special guest Leslie Lindsey Davis joins me and we chat about ways to nurture the best friend within. A little about Leslie, she’s published 5, almost 6, books, her first one being “You Can’t Eat Love: how learning to love yourself can change your relationship with food.” This book is in the Amazon top 20 in at least 2 categories since its release in January. After much reflection and experience, Leslie is on a mission to help others find their WHY to go on any journey of self-discovery, introduce them to their very best friend in the whole wide world, learn to love themselves, and live their best life.Connect with Leslie: https://youcanteatlove.com/Timestamps: 0:00 Introduction1:30 The journey to self-realization7:00 In control 9:40 Moving beyond broken14:42 Your best friend19:20 Victory points22:54 Favorite phrases dissected28:00 Words are powerful tools and weapons 30:40 You are enoughConnect with me: https://curveswelcome.com

Improving the Quality of Your Life through EFT and Tapping
I'm always on the lookout for ways to improve the quality of my life, and I feel after this podcast chat that I have a new tool in my quality life toolbox. My guest, Ann Hince, spiritual teacher, public speaker, and author, explains how she changed the direction of her life through the process of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as tapping.  Tune in to learn this very simple technique that you can start using immediately as I have! About Ann Hince: Ann has developed the ability to sense inside her body, and release physical tension stored in her connective tissue, using solely the focus of her mind. She has x-rays to show the physical changes resulting from this inner work - including changing the alignment of her eye sockets, the straightening of her neck, the centering of her lower jaw, and the growth of her tooth roots.Ann wants us all to know that we have this incredible power within us, it just takes going further with practices that you may already be doing.As many of you may know, changing what is on our inside, changes what we see on the outside, so it is Ann's belief that we can not only change our personal world, but also our collective world.Ann has a YouTube channel where she shares her journey, explains the connection between the physical and the spiritual, and will be posting videos of how to change the pressing issues of our time. Her book, A Pathway to Insight, details her journey and breaks down the steps she took to attain what she calls Insight, or the ability to see within the body.Connect with Ann Hince: https://annhince.com/Podcast Time Stamps: 0:00 Intro14:24 Welcome Ann Hince1:57 Defining moment to self-healing3:04 EFT technique5:15 Self-awareness is key6:52 Learning about EFT and tapping8:56 Becoming aware of how we feel13:06 Similarities to acupressure/acupuncture13:48 Letting go of stored emotions17:15 When we fully accept something, it’s debilitating features  dissipate20:07 Using the law of attraction23:10 Don’t aim for positive thinking to eliminate truth26:20 Changing physical through EFT31:10 Wrap up

Hacking Your Nutritional Approach to Health
Nutrition has the power to positively affect our lives. One of the most profound areas where this can occur is in the process of cancer treatment. Nutrition, in concert with traditional medical interventions, can help make cancer therapies more effective to increase chances of survival. In this episode of Curves Welcome podcast, I chat with Martha Tettenborn, RD about hacking chemo using "the ketogenic diet, therapeutic fasting, and a kickass attitude to power through cancer."

Cancer cells need it, unable to grow and multiply without a steady supply of glucose. But after a cancer diagnosis, medical and dietary recommendations from oncology doctors often result in increased blood sugar and insulin levels—the essential elements that cancer cells need to thrive.In Hacking Chemo, Registered Dietitian and cancer survivor Martha Tettenborn uncovers the secrets of cancer metabolism, offering a refreshing new way of treating the disease with minimal side effects and maximum effectiveness. Cancer treatment like chemotherapy doesn’t have to derail your life.

Her private health coach practice, The Cancer Doula, promotes a low-carb, whole-foods-based approach to disease prevention and cancer symptom management.When diagnosed with Stage 1 ovarian cancer, Martha began exploring the research of the disease and discovered the science of cancer metabolism. This led her to develop and use a protocol of ketogenic diet with targeted therapeutic fasting to significantly impact her response to chemotherapy. Inspired by her own journey, Martha wants to help others see cancer differently – as an experience that will give you strength, wisdom, and more love for your body and life than ever before.A featured speaker at the Low Carb Long Weekend Summit and on numerous podcasts, Martha shares her knowledge as a dietitian and experience as a cancer patient to inform others about the power of metabolic interventions to support conventional cancer treatment. Martha also instructs courses teaching the ketogenic approach to cancer treatment for the Nutrition Network and Udemy.A cancer survivor since 2018, Martha is an avid hiker, cyclist, live theatre backstage crew member and a wannabe world adventurer.

How to Benefit from Feedback with Special Guest Ann Roberts
We've all been there when we've received criticism and felt badly about it. Maybe the feedback made us question our work, our worth, our very path in life. If we allow it to, this feedback can derail us. But the key in this is 'if we allow it to'. We have the control to take this feedback in any way we choose.  Sometimes feedback can be a tough pill to swallow,  but it can actually benefit us if we open up to it and find the helpful parts. In this episode, Ann Roberts - award-winning author, executive director of the Golden Crown Literary Society, and former educator - and I talk through ways we can benefit from feedback.Rather watch this interview on YouTube?https://youtu.be/nvbPk2TNe7w ABOUT ANN ROBERTSAnn Roberts is the award-winning author of twenty romance, mystery and general fiction novels, including the Ari Adams mystery series.

Life Lessons from the Dojo to Apply to Everyday Living
When I was in my late twenties, the last thing I ever imagined I’d do is walk through the doors of a dojo and sign on the dotted line to become a karate student. But destiny called me towards those doors and into a place I’d soon come to call my second home. I use the word destiny loosely here because I’m not sure many people might refer to a close call with a criminal in an alleyway a call to destiny. But I needed skills and confidence, and the dojo appeared when I needed it. To me that’s the definition of destiny. Mentors come in all forms. Mine just happened to come wearing a fifth degree blackbelt and a can-do attitude that told me everything was going to be okay. No criminal was ever going to get the best of me again, if I could help it. And I believe my mentor would say the same still to this day.My mentor Sensei Carlos taught me three very important life lessons that I carry with me to this day some twenty years later. And I’m able to still carry them because I was open and eager to soak up his knowledge. He was living his life the way I wanted to – with a healthy respect for self-control and how it can serve us when we find ourselves in perilous situations. SUBSCRIBE!

How to Turn Things Around in Life
You are the only person in this world who is you. That makes you unique and one-of-a-kind. There is no other person who can be you. And you deserve to be happy, to be loved, and to be appreciated. It is perfectly okay to love yourself. In fact, loving yourself is one of the most important things you can do. Self-love is about getting in touch with ourselves, our well-being and our happiness. As it spreads, we blanket the world in a layer of peace and harmony. It’s life-affirming and only creates a ripple of positivity.

Why you want to rock the boat
Rocking the boat is important because when you do, you engage conflict. Most of us automatically think conflict is a bad thing.

How to Better Believe in Yourself
In this episode, I bring up something that happened in my past that defined me in a good way. The path getting there was really uncomfortable, bit I gained a healthy rush from it. I remember the first time I choked publicly. I was in high school. In fact, I was the new kid in town, starting over in eleventh grade in a new school. As if high school wasn’t hard enough on a kid, toss in the insecurity of having no friends, no alliances, nothing to keep yourself grounded. So there I was an awkward teenager, with eighties hair and nerves about as strong as tumbleweed, sitting in the front row of my English classroom in a panic. Why was I in panic? Because it was the first week of school, not a soul spoke to me, and I sat alone, perched at the front of the class, pretty much a beacon for being called upon by a teacher. Why did that freak me out? I have no idea. It never did before I entered that lonely high school classroom. In my former school, I had friends, I was a majorette, I was on the cross country team, and I knew everyone. Here, I was treated like an outsider and the stakes were high for me because I wanted to belong. I wanted them to want to be my friend. I wanted to be accepted and comfortable again. But the universe is funny when you seek comfort. It likes to screw with us, doesn’t it? Hahaha It likes to toss us into uncomfortable situations and see how long we can survive before we can thrive. Tune in to find out how I got past this and ways you can get past challenges, too.SUBSCRIBE!  Please subscribe to my channel to receive the latest podcasts as they publish.Live Your Best Life Podcast Chat Group on Facebook:Come join me and my amazingly inspiring podcast friend, Natalie Miller-Snell for lively discussions about life's curves and seizing the day. https://www.facebook.com/groups/liveyourbestlifepodcastchat Patreon Links:Join my journey on Patreon and get sweet rewards and JOLT POSTS to inspire you to action: https://www.patreon.com/suziecarrSpecial Links:Grab a free gift from me: http://curveswelcome.com/ Email me questions and comments: suzie@curveswelcome.comConnect with me:Twitter: https://twitter.com/girl_novelist Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/suzie.carr Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/SuzieCarrNovelist Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/girl_novelist/

How to Stop Comparing Yourself to Others
I listened to a podcast the other day and the podcaster said something that completely resonated. “When we compare, we stop performing our best because we are following instead of doing our own thing.” I do believe that comparisons can be helpful if you do so with the intention to grow and learn from them. But most of us, when we compare, we are often doing so from a viewpoint of lack and if I’m being honest, envy. Of course, this doesn’t serve us. We know it’s a dangerous game to compare ourselves because it brings about feelings of inadequacy and can seriously stunt our growth. Yet, many of us still do it.Tune in to find out why we do this and how we can stop through a simple change in perspective.SUBSCRIBE!

How to Make a Hard Decision

Start Living a Life that Makes You Happy
Curves Welcome – Start Living a Life that Makes You HappyMaybe you’ve found yourself living a life on someone else’s terms, a life, if given an easier choice, you never would’ve made for yourself. That happens a lot. Choosing a life path not at all in sync with your heart because it’s just easier than rocking the boat with those in your life.  It’s not comfortable to rock the boat, after all. It can be quite terrifying, in fact. It’s terrifying because you don’t know how those close to you will think of your true calling or true self. Will they still love you? Will they accept you as you truly are? Will this change in a life path alter their lives in a way that will make you feel guilt, even if it is unjustified guilt?  What’s at stake if you don’t choose life on your own terms?Tune in to explore this with me.SUBSCRIBE!  Please subscribe to my channel to receive the latest podcasts as they publish. Live Your Best Life Podcast Chat Group on Facebook:Come join me and my amazingly inspiring podcast friend, Natalie Miller-Snell for lively discussions about life's curves and seizing the day. https://www.facebook.com/groups/liveyourbestlifepodcastchat Patreon Links:Join my journey on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/suziecarrSpecial Links:Grab a free gift from me: http://curveswelcome.com/ Email me questions and comments: suzie@curveswelcome.comConnect with me:Twitter: https://twitter.com/girl_novelist Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/suzie.carr Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/SuzieCarrNovelist Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/girl_novelist/

How to Make Your Dream Come True
I’ve learned that to gain a sense of purpose requires action. If you want to be a writer, you must write. If you want to be a painter, you must paint. If you want to be an actor, you must act. You can’t just talk about it. You can’t just dream about it. You must do it. You can’t ever give up. Often times that path opens up by our willingness to forge a new one where one didn't exist before. That takes courage to build a new path. And that courage stems from a strong desire to live a life you’re meant to live. Have you ever given up on something because you felt it was impossible to achieve? You felt all the odds were stacked too high against you? You didn’t think you had what was necessary to make an impact? If so, you’re not alone. And I’m living proof that what you decide to do is only half as important as doing it. Tune in to learn how to get started doing what's in your heart.SUBSCRIBE!
