I remember the day when I went out for an evening run, knowing that I wasn't going to return home. I didn't want to end my life, but I knew I couldn't keep living in the same toxic environment. I knew I didn't want to leave my children, but I no longer knew how to provide protection. Staying home was miserable and unsafe. During that time in my life, taking a chance on the exposure of an unknown virus over the complete chaos that I was experiencing in my home, was a chance I would have been willing to take. Staying home is not always easy nor simple.

Last week I had the opportunity to connect with the Nicole and Alex, co-founders of Iridescent Women and The Iridescent Podcast, a podcast dedicated to sharing real experiences and conversations to champion, encourage, and inspire each other to explore our own unique brilliance. Chatting with Nicole and Alex felt like a conversation among life long friends, sharing stories of inspiration, hardship and transformation.
