How do you define success? Status, title, money, be at a certain place by a certain age in life? This week’s guest Vyana Novus-Magee shares an alternative perspective that she’s implemented in her life, and made into a handy-dandy journal, after becoming a mother, re-triggering past trauma, and having a near-death experience. We talk living with mental-health challenges, the power of self-acknowledgement, becoming a mother, and how to simply meet life when it’s asks more of us than we think we’re able to give. You can grab Vyana’s ‘Redefining Success Journal’ on Amazon.
Vyana Novus-Magee is a queer mother and artist based in Ojai, California. Her content and creations pull from her experience living with Complex-PTSD, and the journey she has taken to reclaim pleasure and purpose in her life. You can hear her discussing such topics as boundaries, consent, vulnerability, unsolicited advice, and trust at her Redefining Success & Pleasure retreats held within the US and abroad.
