It's Not About Food Podcast with Laurelee Roark

Truth is our own internal wisdom that defines who we are. Finding our own truth means figuring out the difference between what we’ve been told we should be verses who we really are. Often times in the past our true feelings, passions, opinions and experiences were ignored, rejected, or just not encouraged. When we can relearn to identify what our own truth is, we are able to put into action what our heart and soul desires.
