Is it hard for you to accept difficult truths about yourself? Do you wonder about how to stay hopeful and positive while accepting challenging truths? On this week’s episode we answer a listener question about moving from denial to acceptance. We also share our favorite end of year rituals, and talk about the innovative anti-racist work Richael has been working on. As usual, we end with things giving us life: dogs, comedians, emo music and a gratitude practice.
