This is Forty... {40}

When I first became aware of my social media connection with my guest, Ritu Bhathal, we had a little exchange about being over forty and still being more than capable of chasing, and conquering, our goals. Out of that conversation stemmed the idea for a Podcast episode about this. Let's face it, ladies, we live in a world where the ideas fed to us about the age of 40 are not gentle or kind... What I didn't expect was the details between Ritu beginning to chase her dream to write, and the tragedy, heartbreak, struggle and life that would happen within the years leading to where she is today. Her perspective on age also comes from a place different than my standard, Americanized one, because not only is she from another country, but she lives within an ethnic culture that adds its own complications and pressures. I am so grateful I get to share my new friend Ritu with you! She is an author, poet, teacher, wife, mother and absolutely amazing! Beyond this podcast, you can find Ritu around the world wide web by visiting her blog, website, Instagram, and of course, twitter. Her book, Poetic RITUals Other things referenced in this episode include: Gail Honeyman, author of Eleanor Olyphant is Completely FineJames Charles YouTube channel --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/rainydaycollective/support

Some people miss the point of optimism and are just too giddy. We've all met them. In today's show, our guest is one of the most sincerely positive people I have ever encountered! Alongside my co-host Maggie, we got to chat with Megan Moulton. Not only is her positivity infectious, it is truly inspiring as she is HIV positive. Come get to know Megan, hear her story and learn some interesting facts along the way. (Of which I'll admit, HIV is a topic I knew very little actual facts about.) Megan's instagram HIV (CDC) --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/rainydaycollective/support

She, like the rest of us, has walked through this life with her fair share of hardships and disappointments but with her son (and trusty sidekick), she is relentlessly pursuing her dream.

In Episode 32, as we kick off the Month of May, I had the opportunity to sit down with two amazing women and talk Postpartum Depression, the journey of making intentional memories and mental/emotional health. My cohost was my life long friend Sarah, who is a midwife and our guest was fellow podcast host Jennifer Tierney. Jennifer's podcast How To Make a Memory serves as a medium for connecting with others and as a love letter to her children...  Jennifer shares about her journey with postpartum depression and shares some really helpful information. Sarah was the best cohost for this episode, hands down! (*Editing is mentioned in this episode but did not get done completely due to a death in the family.)How to Make a Memory Podcast(How To Make it Through Depression Episode)Info and resources re: Postpartum depression: Mayo Clinic National Institute of Mental Health--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/rainydaycollective/support
