Well, I don't even know where to start with this episode. I guess I could start by explaining how deeply my girl crush for this week's guest runs. Katie Dalebout is an author, podcast host, beautiful human, and claims she's not an expert at anything but that she's simply an enthusiast of a bunch of things --- so, I suppose you can imagine it's a little tricky to pinpoint who she is in just a few words.
As I mention to Katie in this episode, she may not know it but I've spent at least 50 hours at her side, going on walks and cooking as she interviews dozens of talented and inspiring women through my headphones. I genuinely had a hard time even asking her the right questions for those of you who've never heard of her! I definitely encourage you subscribe and take a listen to her podcast. I was just listening to her #117th episode, so you have a ton of material to dive into!
This year, she published her first book Let it Out: A Journey Through Journaling which is an amazing tool she's created to simplify and demystify the ominous practice of journaling, making its well-touted ability to impact your self-growth much easier. I'm no mega-journaler, so this in an excellent opportunity for me to incorporate some serious shifts in my nightly practice. Hell, I might even take her word for it and start different journals for different topics! Who knows.
I'm not going to say too much on here, because I don't really like to take up too much of your time you could be spending listening to our conversation, but I will inform you that this is the longest podcast episode I've done so far. I'm trying to keep things within an hour, but this episode was just too delicious and packed with incredible things to edit anything out. You just get it all.
I also had a shit-load of questions prepared for Katie, but I didn't really use them. This was an unscripted piece of magic that really left me feeling wickedly refreshed. We even had a few moments of the record that really shook things up for me. She's just so breathtakingly inspiring and understanding of a few not-so-awesome things I've been dealing with that I don't share with the world-wide-web.
Anyway. Go listen.
