Summary

In part 1 of a 2-part series, I share a past life struggle involving a miscarriage and the marriage struggles that intensified as a result. And, for fun, here's my bio (every other guest has one, so I want to fit in with the "cool kids."): Jen is a 42-year-old mom of 6 and Women's Happiness Expert who lives just outside of Madison, Wisconsin with her family. Jen was raised on a farm with the values of hard work and honesty, and today Jen's priorities are spirituality, family, healthy and helping women find happiness (in that order). In her free time Jen enjoys yoga, meditation, time in nature, and curling up with a great book. Nuggets of Wisdom from Jen: After I clawed myself out of the emotional pit that resulted from events on the most horrible day of my life (so far), I learned several things that helped me let go of the guilt I used to feel when I took time for myself: I'm loved and I'm worthy. I'm 100% in charge of my life and happiness.  The greatest gift I can give my loved ones is my own happiness. I'm happiest when I take care of myself first (and others second). The Wheel of Happiness is the perfect guide to guide my use of time so I take care of ALL aspects of myself.    A Challenge from Jen: Grab the Self Care Toolkit and learn the 5 things that will help you get rid of guilt... sweet!   Then... email me at support@jenriday.com and share 1) one thing you struggle with and 2) 1 thing from the Wheel of Happiness you're going to focus on to help you take better care of yourself so you can face your struggles with strength. You can ask to remain anonymous, or, at the other extreme you can volunteer to jump on a Skype audio call so I can record your voice for Part 2 of this episode, airing next week! Resources The 8 components of the Wheel of Happiness: Body, Mind, Emotion, Spirit, Contribution, Relationships, Outdoors, Resources.  Listen to Part 2 to get the rest of the story next week.  Louise Hay Self Care Toolkit Subscribe to Vibrant Happy Women:
