‘Why bother’ is a question we ask ourselves at certain moments in our lives; moments when life beats us down and we’re finding it harder and harder to keep caring. How do we muster up the will to fight for the life we want? How do we avoid giving up?


Jen Louden is a national best-selling author of 9 books and the host of Create Out Loud, a podcast for creatives. For almost 30 years, Jen has been a leading voice in the spheres of self-care and creative transformation. Get‌ ‌book‌ ‌links‌ ‌and‌ ‌resources‌ ‌at‌ https://www.mbs.works/2-pages-podcast/

Hear us discuss:

“Sometimes, you just have to fight for your life.” [5:48 ] | “It’s not unique to feel disappointment about our lives.” [10:51 ] | Leaving the past behind to make room for the future: “Nothing can be new unless it first turns to ashes.” [12:39 ]  Committing to the process: “Letting go of the outcome does not mean giving into resignation.” [16:41 ]
