Quotes from Natalie

“Whatever you do when you first open your eyes is what you prioritize in your life.”

“As long as we are constantly trying to discover that calling, that purpose, and work toward making an impact, not just for ourselves or for others, that’s where the magic happens.”

“Fear will always be with you. It’s like breathing. It’s like heartbeat. It is there. It is going to be a part of your makeup forever. However, you can chose to act in spite of it. And that’s courageous. That’s living courageously.” 

“Social media is glass windows into a curated space that we believe to be truth. But it’s not.”

    “Whatever you do when you first open your eyes is what you prioritize in your life.”
    – word – spouse – God – self – family – media –
    This was a real light-bulb though!

    Robyn, I’m loving your podcast. I thought it was going to focus on nutrition and movement. It’s so much more: feeling good inside and out, physically, spiritually, mentally – not just in isolation, but in community, every day life. Thank you so much! I’m loving the conversations and the guests. I look forward to much more 🙂
