We’re shaking things up this week!

It’s my birthday, which is always a time for deep reflection and introspection. As I complete another trip around the sun, I’ve been contemplating the lessons I’ve learned over the past 36 years that have made the most difference in my life — the stuff that’s *truly* helped me uplevel, create lasting change, and be the best version of myself.

I’m sharing those life lessons here — all 36 of them, divided into four categories: health, wealth, love and parenthood.

Tune in to hear how I prioritise my mental health, why singing is surprisingly good for your nervous system, the money mindset principles that transformed my bank balance, why it’s so essential to get your ‘financial house’ in order to experience true abundance, my #1 technique for next-level relationships, why self-care is ESPECIALLY important when you’re a parent, the ‘mama mantra’ I swear by, why it’s so essential to figure out your purpose in this life, and why we are ALL miracles (yep — that includes you, beautiful!).

These 36 lessons have made such an incredible difference to every part of my life — my mindset, marriage, parenting, friendships, finances, energy, wellbeing… all of it. 

Even implementing just ONE of these lessons has the power to radically influence how you feel in your day to day life. So buckle up, pop in those earbuds, and press play — if you want to be the best version of yourself, this one’s for you.

In this episode we chat about:

  • How I learned to truly value my mental and physical health, why nature is my favourite medicine, and the surprising reason to take up singing (even if you sound more ‘bullfrog’ than Beyoncé!) (02:51)
  • My secret for finding ‘work’ that truly lights you up (and that doesn’t actually feel like work!) (11:03)
  • The money mindset hacks that finally shifted me into true abundance mode (17:26)
  • Why it’s so important to fix your ‘leaky buckets’ to attract more money (and why gratitude is your secret weapon when it comes to abundance) (25:51)
  • Why you should treat your relationships like they are plants (33:12)
  • The communication technique that uplevelled my relationships more than anything else (38:03)
  • The motherhood mantra I swear by (and why I’m such an advocate for playfulness) (46:20)
  • How finding peace in the present moment can transform your experience of parenting (52:53)

    Melissa…this was SO Amazing!! Beautiful…thank you! And Happy Happy Birthday to you. Wishing only love, light and happiness. Thank you for sharing YOUR gift with us on your birthday. Fun fact: I have been struggling to workout. I listened to your whole podcast while riding my Peloton on a scenic quiet ride (virtually) in the mountains by a lake in New Zealand. It was the best I could do today…but I feel filled up with love and also road 5.5 miles. You are Absolutely beautiful inside and out and I appreciate you so so so so much. Thank you for sharing and being vulnerable. You touched my heart and brightened my day. P.S.S. I found out my mom is sick today. I can’t be with her…but I sent her soft pjs, some healing lotion and a new blender so she could make her shakes again since it is all she can keep down. I just barely made my first bigger paycheck after this crazy pandemic, but I wanted to spend it on her. Thank you for validating that was a good decision. She is extremely grateful. Sending love and birthday wishes to you and your family too! Namaste.

    • Oh Kim, you are divine and sooooo sweet. Your mama is one lucky lady. I’m sending you and your mama so much love darling and remember you are worthy of those big paycheck and all the joy, love, peace, and happiness in the world. It’s your birthright. Don’t forget it! xx
