156: Defining Yourself & Dealing With the Seasons of Life w/ Emily Capshaw
“So, what do you do?” A simple question that everyone asks, but so many of us don't feel confident answering – especially if you're a creative. Emily Capshaw does it all (acting, writing, filmmaking, and more) and she can assure you: It's okay to not be defined by a single identity.

- There's no wrong way to meditate. It's a practice of observation of what is and acceptance.
