I have been a steady listener for a long time and I keep meaning to write a review because Jody, you have helped me so much. In my previous life I tended to be more negative and stress very easily. Then things got really hard and all the 'bad things' I thought I could never survive became my daily challenges. I got cancer (recovered and mangaged now), my parents and siblings all got diagnosed with the same cancer a year later, we survived medical school (almost done with residency!), and during med school our second was born via emergency c-section. We found out she had a terminal genetic condition and at 9 months suffered a 'catastrophic brain' injury (doctors don't know why or how it happened), which left her paralyzed, non-verbal, requiring a feeding tube and later trach and vent. She is now 6 years old, almost 7, and such a blessing. Most children with her condition only live about 18 months. I say this not to be a negative nacy, but to say, even when life is the worst, you can still be happy and, I would say, it can lead you to a life that is better than happy. My experiences forced me to come to this place (with so much help from Jody's podcast and Jesus-lots and lots of Jesus). I don't think I would be alive today had I not changed the way I think and realize xyz don't have to be in place to feel happiness, joy and peace. Thanks Jody, for the work you do. It changed my life..maybe even saved it.
