“We all need permission to feel all the feelings and navigate the best way to respond to those feelings.”

In this week’s episode of I Might Cry I’m sitting down with my husband, David, to talk about something hugely important that’s been defining in our lives lately: the releasing of control. From the way we run Almond Leaf to the way we parent our kids to the way we maintain our own relationships, control (or a releasing of it) has been hugely, hugely impactful. We’re talking about how to welcome in the hard things, how to support without control, and how to live a life that’s rich in abundance and joy and love and everything in between. 

If you’ve been looking for a reminder to let go — and to just let… life — then this is the perfect, perfect listen for you. Whether you’re a parent, a creative entrepreneur, or just a human trying to make it on this crazy journey we call life, listen in.
