Bouncing Back From Your Challenges and Thriving With Melissa Monte: TIT33

Melissa was raped twice as a teenager, lost her friend to suicide and dad to cancer. She got addicted to drug, became alcoholic and suffered from severe bulimia for almost a decade.

She has faced a lot of challenges in her own life. It seemed impossible for her to come out of all this. She was surrounded by wrong kind of people, dating a meth addict and going down the wrong path in life. 

On this episode, Melissa shares her story of bouncing back and thriving. She is a certified Yoga teacher and reiki healer. She is also a host of Podcast called Mind Love where she discusses mindset shifts, energy frequencies and modern mindfulness through raw stories, personal experience and inspiring interviews. 


Some Questions I ask Melissa:

  • What was the first thing that you did when you wake up the morning 
  • How hanging out with right kind of people helps you in one's growth?
  • What are your non-negotiables while selecting whom you wanna spend time with?
  • How do you get over your past?
