The Girlfriend Doctor w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca

Jun 30, 2019

Have you ever had a disappointment that’s turned out to be one of the best things that have ever happened to you? That’s the concept of a beautiful no. Today’s guest, author, and speaker Sheri Salata is here to talk about her new book and share some of the experiences she’s had that led her to write it.

Sheri is a writer and producer, co-host of her own podcast The Sheri & Nancy Show, co-founder of The Pillars of Life, and former executive producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show. She is one of the most inspirational women I know, and I’m so happy to introduce her today as my friend.

Sheri was 35 years old when she started working on The Oprah Show in an entry-level position. By the time she turned 50, she was working in her high-level position and living her dream career. But was it the life of her dreams?

It’s so important to know that it’s never too late to start living the life of your dreams.

But living this life takes regular check-ins with yourself and a healthy group of friends around you to act as a sounding board. You might need to push yourself to get outside your comfort zone. And, most of all, you need to become the expert on who you are, what works for your health, and understand what makes you different from everyone else.

Have you experienced a no that turned out to be beautiful? Do you check in with yourself regularly? How do you incorporate meditation into your daily life?

In This Episode:

  • Why it’s never too late to live the life of your dreams
  • How a no can actually turn out to be an absolute gift to your life
  • Why you need to regularly check in with yourself in order to live the life of your dreams
  • What happens when you push yourself
  • Why you need to become the expert on you and your health
  • How meditation helps you center yourself in your own story
  • Why we need each other to make sense of your life


“Recalibrating the way I moved through a day. It’s an ongoing process, it’s not one and done. It’s not checking goals off a piece of paper. It really is about checking in with myself so consciously every day that even when I’m making mistakes or I’m not doing some of the things that I know make me feel good, I know I can make a different decision by 4 o’clock.” (12:51)

“Doing things that are good for me, like medicine, is not inspiring to me. What I’ve had to change, is that I’m leaning into all the things that really, really feel good. Because I understand how much easier it is to just shower myself with love for myself when I feel good. It’s a love practice.” (19:51)

“Feel empowered and enlivened that you’re the expert on you. You’re getting to know yourself. You have your own recipe. What works for you is not the same as what’s going to bright for me. Your joy is yours to define.” (24:05)
