About the Episode

In this episode, Rachel gets personal about her struggle to pull herself out of a dark, fearful place.

After staying up all night worrying about Lea Luna, she begins to spiral into a self-pity party, only to be pulled from her funk by a touching message from one of her followers.

She begins to process her fear, realizing that she has not taken the time to emotionally work through the release of the book, and that with the book release, her deepest traumas will be shared with the world.

But, thanks to the message she received at the exact moment she needed it, she receives the perspective needed to turn the day around, beginning to process her emotions around the book release and upcoming tour.

Rachel starts to focus on the positive effects of the book; keeping the memory of her best friend alive, offering her story in hopes that it will help others cope with trauma, and the healing element of connecting with community through her book tour.

This episode will remind you to consciously choose to change the negative feedback loop in your mind, give yourself time to process your emotions, become grateful for all of the opportunities in your life, and help you to envision meeting and exceeding your goals.
