Episode #39: An Extraordinary Life is Meant to Be Lived

Life can feel too short sometimes, but not for the guest I’m interviewing this week. In this episode, I’m talking with an extraordinary woman who’s lived many lives in her sixty-five years and is still going! She is a ton of fun and has embraced the seasons and changes that she’s encountered in her life so far with curiosity and open arms. 

Listen in to see how she has entered each stage of her life with creativity and joy. She’s been a dancer, mother of four, teacher, and now a chef and cooking instructor with her own school, The Cosmic Muffin School of Cookery. Each path seems to naturally continue from the one before it, as she consciously welcomes changes and tries new things in life to find a balance that works for her. 

You’ll be inspired by Deborah’s vibrant story, personality, and message to her past self.
