Join Tim Ray and Shannon McVey as they interview Bestselling Author, Keynote Speaker, Lifeshifter Mistie Layne, and owner of Shattered Studios, Roxanne Tucker. Are you letting your past rob you of your future? Mistie Layne decided to be present instead of letting all the guilt and shame from her past define her and keep her down and depressed. She went from being a Texas beauty queen going to medical school to sitting in jail with black eyes facing a 40-year prison sentence behind a horrific cocaine addiction. After being attacked and robbed in the wrong place at the wrong time, while doing the wrong things, she lost control of her car and killed someone. Mistie spent many years feeling guilty for being the one that lived and was letting her life get away from her by living in past regrets. After years of stuffing fear of judgment down with food and cocaine, she decided it was time to UNLEASH the beast within by letting go of past resentment, shame, guilt, and anger. She found writing to be what saved her life in prison and her best selling book, What Goes Up, describes a four-step COPE=HOPE program she developed, along with the "TOXIC DUMP" writing exercise to help release negativity. Mistie started the #Transparency is Necessary movement and encourages everyone to #bethatONE to step up and share your life experiences with transparency, thus educating others to JUDGE less and MENTOR more. She SHOUTS her RAW truth about addiction, domestic abuse, perfectionism, and recovery in hopes to save lives and ease a little suffering in the world. Nobody else has to die!!!! JOIN Mistie is this #Transparency is the Necessary movement.
