Everyday Light Warriors

Welcome to The Everyday Light Warriors Podcast. This is a place where personal stories of spectacular people from all walks of life are shared. We unveil their, sometimes, emotional past, the challenges they have faced, and highlight the present victories and journeys of self-love, gratitude, and life purpose. My name is Yenny Stromgren and your host. I started to interview people in 2015, when I was down and needed an energy boost, so you could say this is kind of a selfish podcast. The people I met up with were people that some of them had gone through an emotional past but just had that drive in them that no matter what happened in life they walked forward and strived through self-love and gratitude for everyday either working on their life purpose or trying to find their life path, their missing link. I started to focus interviewing them about their challenges, but as the show has moved on we now talk about the past, present and move on to focus on the future and what they have learned from the past. In this show you will meet people from all walks of life such as musicians, healers, entrepreneurs, politicians, bloggers, artists, teachers, life-coaches, comedians and so much more. We will dwell into topics about depression, anorexia, drug use, grief, suicide, men’s mental health, stage fright, lost love, to living in tiny houses, sustainable living and the most important topic; finding your happiness. My biggest desire though is to share all these people’s stories, regardless of who they are or what they believe in, it will inspire you and super charge your life.

In this episode, I talk to Cathy Fitzgerald who grew up with 5 brothers in Ipswich, QLD. As a young girl she did a lot of sports and exercise is something that is still a big part of her life which she uses on a daily basis for self-care. Cathy also talks about how marrying her best friend was probably not the best thing she could have done, how she later separated, the loss of her father and mother and meeting her partner Carlos. Today Cathy lives with Carlos in a converted shed on a big acreage with a lot of rain forest in the Noosa hinterlands. They have just finished building a sustainable wooden cottage "La Cabana” (the Cabin)in the valley, which they rent out to people who want to escape the stress and experience true serenity without WiFi and electricity but the calming sounds of the rainforest, open fire, sometimes pure silence and a running creek.

In this episode, I'll talk to Carlos Sanchez, a Spanish - Aussie who grew up in Cadiz southern Spain, with 1 sister and 2 brothers. Although he had a passion for art and drawing, he later studied medicine, which led him to work as a doctor in the UK. He later took a break to travel around Africa and at the end of his journey he came to Australia, a place he totally fell in love with and now calls home. Carlos also talks about why he bought 50 acres in the Noosa hinterlands, living in a shed and meeting his now partner Cathy Fitzgerald (see podcast interview #10). He also talks about why he loves what he is doing now, working as an integrative doctor at Ibuki Health & Wellness in Noosa, how it feels like surfing with dolphins and why he and Cathy built “The Arty Rainforest Cabin Eumundi” to rent out to people who need to wind down.
