A few short years ago, 43 year-old Taryn Brumfitt’s life changed monumentally when she decided to stop hating her body.
A simple ‘before and after’ picture Taryn posted online resulted in 8000 women reaching out to share their own tales of body dissatisfaction, and that’s when her body image revelation - and revolution - started.
Now a best-selling author and director of the social-change documentary, Embrace, Taryn’s won a stack of global awards and accolades and celebrities’ support...but that’s not why she continues to push for self-love and acceptance. It’s moments like meeting a woman in her seventies who broke down crying after seeing unedited vulvas in Embrace...and feeling ‘normal’ for the first time in her life.
Many thought-provoking and freeing conversations ahead in this episode, and Taryn also opens up about finding herself suddenly single at 40+ following the end of her marriage, how she coped with being alone during 2020, and the trepidation and excitement of finding a new love.
So, what happens when you let go of past versions of yourself?
We find out in FORTY.
