The Gabriel Hines On Life, Holistic Health, and Spirituality
Today I sit with my longtime hometown friend, Gabe Hines. Gabe is an inspiration to me for many reasons, and I think they will intrigue you as well. The first time we recorded this episode, the entire file was unexpectedly deleted. As devastating as it was, we had faith that a better episode would be recorded in the future. The first time we recorded we were in the podcast studio in my home, so actually having cameras and filming in a studio is already a million times better. I cannot tell you guys enough how excited I am to be sharing this episode with you. Make sure to give Gabe a follow as well if you enjoy the episode!

The Story That Started It All | Turning Pain Into Purpose (Trigger Warning/Parental Advisory) 18+
I was reading John O’Leary’s book ‘On Fire’ recently about living a radically inspired life, and he spoke of our true stories in life. Not the story that we tell on a first date, a job interview, or at cocktail hour, the story. The one where you have overcome something and in the process of overcoming it has shaped you into the person you are today and along the way you have become sharper, mentally stronger, and far more resilient than you ever knew you could be. The story that you feel like drug you to hell and back. In his book he encourages his readers to share their stories. I began thinking to myself, “Wow, I have been doing this for a few years now, and I’ve really never had an article or podcast solely dedicated to what my family and I went through.” Many of you may not be aware of this, but this is actually how my blog and podcast came to fruition. With the general theme and premise being “feel good” and “mental health” my initial vision statement, was “I don’t care if I ever make any money from this, as long as my content reaches one person, just one single person that is maybe in the same headspace my father was in leading up to committing and can help them down off of the mental ledge they are on that is all that will ever matter. If I can just help get through to one person, that’s all I need.” Because truthfully, I wish there were more resources my dad could have leaned into heavily before deciding to end it all. I mean yes this may look like a hobby, but truly at times it feels like a mission God has sent me on. If I had it my way, I would be living on a ranch somewhere with babies, bunnies, goats, and no social media. With that being said, it matters a lot to me to be able to vulnerably share my own story in hopes of helping or inspiring others. Because at the end of the day it’s already happened and there’s nothing that I can do about it other than to share it in hopes of helping a hurting world and growing myself. The only evidence of life is growth John O’Leary says, so if you’re not growing, you’re dying simply put.

Cultivating MOTIVATION and Keeping MOMENTUM | With Julian Smith From Brighterlight Media
This week on the Bloomie Brained podcast I would like to introduce you guys to my dear friend, Julian Smith. Julian is a powerhouse of a man who always inspires those around him. He is the owner of Brighterlight Media and the husband of my friend Taylor Keeping Smith, who was on the show two episodes ago! I adore the two of them and what they stand for, so it was simply divine to be able to have both of them on recently. Julian thrives when he is creating. He is one of the most talented videographers that I know, and it truly fills his heart to see his customers satisfied. His ability to remain internally focused despite the distractions of the external world is immensely inspiring. I will never forget the time that he corrected me for saying something in my life was "hard." He suggested that I use the word "challenging" instead. This one small piece of advice he offered me changed my perspective in many large ways to come. So I hope that the next fifty minutes with Julian resonate deeply and that you leave with at least one takeaway or mental shift in perspective. I wanted to pick Julian's brain about motivation because at times it can be so easy to feel uninspired, leading to a lack of motivation. So how does he keep the momentum on a daily basis you might ask? Listen in as he takes us through his daily routine and shares the things he has left behind to continue pursuing his dreams and goals. Follow Julian and his business pages on Instagram! @kingg_juless @brighterlightmedia and co-owner of his wife's business @keepingitglam As always- to shop my style, skincare, haircare, supplements, home decor, fav books, makeup, etc... https://www.shopltk.com/search?keyword=bloomiebrained&type=post

A Spiritual Enlightenment: Cameron Smith's Coming To Christ
Cameron is back on the show this week, and boy does he have a beautiful story to share, or coming to Christ if you will. Cameron and I have had strangely similar timelines when it comes to spirituality and awakenings, and I think that some of this has to do with our fathers both passing away on December 17th 2019. Regardless of being close to your parent or not, when the person that played a part brining you into this world passes away you can't help but to question everything you once knew in turn seeing life through a different lens. You will notice that our journeys didn't just happen overnight or immediately after our fathers passing. The journey extends far past that life experience taking place as we didn't want tragedy to be the reason we turned to Christ. Each of us wanted to find it on our own at the exact right time, and little did we know all we had to do was search from within. I hope that you enjoy today's episode. XX Bloomie
