The notorious RBG, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, was one of only 4 women to ever sit on the Supreme Court of the United States. Women make up only 3% of justices (4 out of 114) and it’s thanks to RBG that we enjoy so many rights as women. Today we celebrate her and honor her legacy.

This is the final episode of the Aging with Grace Series and I’m so excited to have Jennifer Arthurton on the show. Jennifer is the founder of Old Chicks Know Sh*t, a website, and podcast, that explores the topic of aging with humor and grace. Jennifer had her own midlife reinvention at the age of 50 when she found herself divorced, an empty-nester, unemployed, and bedridden with a serious illness. She knows how daunting it can feel when all the messaging in our culture is telling us that we have somehow become a diminished version of our former selves just because we've reached a certain age.  The truth is we are in fact just coming into the most powerful point in our lives. 

 

In this episode, we explore: 

 

  • The lost years of womanhood and how to find yourself during them
  • How to stand in your power in midlife and beyond
  • The way to stop downplaying your accomplishments and embrace your wisdom instead

I don’t know about you, but when I think of going through menopause, I hear the Jaws theme in my head and feel prepared for a descent into hell. But guess what? It doesn’t have to be that way! That’s why I brought on my friend, colleague and expert, Maryon Stewart, to share the truth about hormone hell. 

 

Maryon Stewart is a world-renowned healthcare expert, often referred to as the Pioneer of the Natural Menopause Movement. Over the last 28 years, together with her team, she has helped tens of thousands of women around the world overcome PMS and menopause symptoms with a well-researched approach, without using drugs or hormones. She has written 27 popular self-help books, co-authored a series of medical papers, written regular columns for numerous daily newspapers and magazines, and had her own TV and radio shows.

 

In January 2018 Maryon Stewart was awarded a British Empire Medal by the Queen and in

December 2018 she was voted as one of the 50 most inspirational women in the UK by Femail in the Daily Mail.  She is a mother of four children and now lives with her American husband in Florida and splits her time between home, New York and London.

In this episode, we explore: 

  • Why menopause is an injustice to women everywhere
  • How to get out of hormone hell
  • Why menopause is NOT a death sentence and how to create mid-life refuel instead.

 

Maryon also has a top-notch free webinar coming up where she goes deep on how to create optimum health right now and even takes your questions live. Go to www.amyahlersshow.com/menopause to register for free now!

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, marches and protests happening around the world after the tragic deaths of more unarmed black men, George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, and another unarmed black woman, Breonna Taylor, I wanted to bring back two shows from the Race Relations Series I did in 2016 for the Mama Truth Show (the original version of my podcast).

For the black people in my community: I see and acknowledge the heartache, trauma, and devastation you're experiencing right now (and have likely experienced your whole life). I want you to know how much I deeply care about you and how much I believe Black Lives Matter. I also want you to know my commitment to continue imperfectly educating myself, as a white privileged woman, in anti-racism work so I can unlearn the ways of white supremacy that I know I benefit from. You and your voice matter so much to me. You belong here and I'm deeply honored you're here.

For the white people in my community: Please join me in doing the work that we need to do to become the best allies possible. I'm learning alongside you. We must continue to put our white fragility aside and show up day after day. Will you join me in taking actions, big and small, to help dismantle the systems of racism and oppression?

For today’s show, the fantastic Desiree Adaway joins us to help us all learn more about how to celebrate diversity. Desiree is a consultant, trainer, coach, and speaker building resilient, equitable, and inclusive organizations. She holds a vision for people’s lives, workplaces, and communities until they can hold it for themselves. She has over 25 years of experience creating, leading, and managing international, multicultural teams through major organizational changes in over 40 countries. 

Listen in to learn:  

-how to become a better ally and invite the wholeness of people into your life

-what White Supremacy is and how it’s different than racism

-how to approach difficult conversations about race and embrace the tension

-compelling stories about her own journey as a mom and a black woman. 

 

Make sure to check out Desiree’s work at https://adawaygroup.com/ and I highly recommend following Desiree on Facebook. Her posts are so thought-provoking and profound, they light up my day! https://www.facebook.com/desireeadaway

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, marches and protests happening around the world after the tragic deaths of more unarmed black men, George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, and another unarmed black woman, Breonna Taylor, I wanted to bring back two shows from the Race Relations Series I did in 2016 for the Mama Truth Show (the original version of my podcast). Before we dive in I want to share: 

For the black people in my community: I see and acknowledge the heartache, trauma, and devastation you're experiencing right now (and have likely experienced your whole life). I want you to know how much I deeply care about you and how much I believe Black Lives Matter. I also want you to know my commitment to continue imperfectly educating myself, as a white privileged woman, in anti-racism work so I can unlearn the ways of white supremacy that I know I benefit from. You and your voice matter so much to me. You belong here and I'm deeply honored you're here.

For the white people in my community: Please join me in doing the work that we need to do to become the best allies possible. I'm learning alongside you. We must continue to put our white fragility aside and show up day after day. Will you join me in taking actions, big and small, to help dismantle the systems of racism and oppression? I’ve created an open source document of resources for you at www.mamatruthshow.com/justice 

For all in my community: I know this is a time of deep rage, despair, loneliness, and fear. I am sending you love beyond measure. May this breakdown, destruction and burning up lead to the biggest breakthrough this country and world of ours have ever known.

Today’s show features Kara Wright, known as America’s first diversity coach. Kara worked as an organizational development consultant specializing in diversity inclusion when she had her daughter. She realized then that she wanted to create a life and community for her that not only honored who she is but one that she would feel connected to both in spite of difference and because of commonality.

Tune into today’s show and learn about: 

  • White fragility and white privilege
  • What to do if your child says a racist remark
  • How to have a conversation about race with your family. 

All of these topics and MORE are covered in today’s Mama Truth Show featuring America’s first Diversity Coach, Kara Wright, of www.mindhearted.com
