Episode 12: Learning to live in the moment, maximize time, and take a moment to pause


Key highlights:

1. Giving yourself the permission to prioritize oneself while being a mom, wife, friend, supporter and survivor. Using the “mid-day reset,” to quieten the cancer devil on the shoulder.

2. Cancer coaching helps Molly identify her goal, drive clarity, and create actionable steps to “pause” and prioritize herself.

3. The juxtaposition of living in the moment, and maximizing time we have as cancer survivors.

This is not the same as what “they” or the world perceives to be the most important.”

    “I have a hard time as a people pleaser to reconcile that as well.”
