So let me share some of my favorite lines from this interview: “I always thought I was going to have these angel investors support my vision in my career. But it’s my life journey and it’s my path to get there. And although I wanted someone to invest in me, I also realized that t I wasn’t actually financially investing in myself, I wasn’t doing it for myself in the way that I wanted. And when I started doing that in small increments, everything started building from within the core and becoming so solid that all my passions and pleasures and things that I wanted to happen got on their own train tracks and took a life of their own. And now they’re out there healthy with their own branches in the world, and I’m able to nurture them.” – Katie Chonacas “Whatever you’re doing, no matter what it is, when you’re like, “I’m going to give it my one hundred percent,” check-in at 80 percent. Your new one hundred is your new 80. And when you get to 80, well check in with yourself at 80 and stop there and check how much fuel is in the tank. I’m going to go a little more and then stop five percent after maybe at eighty-five. If you have it in you and leave that extra 15 to 20 percent for the unknown, for meditation, for a bath, for silence, to talk with your mom or a friend or a partner to cry like or to journal, write, or whatever you want to do instead of going to one hundred percent to show up for everyone else. Go let them think you’re one hundred is your eighty eighty-five. So you keep that self-reflection in space and time to develop more compassion and more peace and sanctuary for yourself first.” – Katie Chonacas “When people are saying that people are mistreating them, it mostly comes from an internal dialogue. if you want people to treat you with respect, you need to respect yourself. You need to watch out and not call yourself stupid and dumb and stuff like that. When you see yourself puts yourself down, change your mental dialogue to seeing the positive things about yourself, and then you can see that other people would also reflect that positive image of you.” – Dr. Rozina
