Sometimes we need a little help to accept a diagnosis, be it for our child or ourselves. In this episode, Dennis Procopio helps me to accept my recent diagnosis. I think his advice transcends my singular experience and can apply to so many situations, including the one in your life. This was a very personal episode and I hope it helps you as much as it helped me.

Learn More About Trail Magik
Communing with nature is one of the best methods of self-care available, and hiking is one of the best ways to enjoy nature.
If you’re a parent who enjoys hitting the trails with your little ones, you’re already aware that toddlers will walk some of the journey and want carried the rest of the way. There are tons of contraptions for carrying babies while on the trails, but what about those in between, toddler years? You don’t want to bring a big bulky carrier for a kid who’s only going to use it some of the time.
The Trail Magik Kid Carrier solves that problem and does so brilliantly.
Invented by a Dad who wanted to take his 3-year-old backpacking. It’s for kiddos 12 months up to 43 pounds. The carrier attaches onto hiking backpacks and durable daypacks that have a waist strap & upper loaders. Weighing less than 10oz, it’s so portable, you can stuff it into the side of your backpack when not in use. It’s a game-changer for the “outdoor adventure family” community.
