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 chat with Assisi Chant, editor, word whisperer and gratitude master. For a couple of years now Assisi, her husband, and their two kids have been living in a tiny cottage whilst building a house. In this interview, Assisi will share the challenges she faces having almost no space to herself and how she still manages to kick goals despite this. Assisi talks about how, with a few small mindset changes, she has not only managed to greatly increase her income earning potential, she has also started to attract the authors and clients that resonate with her on all levels. All by manifesting, decluttering her house and life of unwanted energies, and by constantly remaining grateful for the everyday things in her life. Make sure you stick around to the end where she gives you her #1 best self-care advice. Today Assisi is busy writing and editing for Conscious Entrepreneurs in many of the helping professions and looks forward to a long career of helping present these kinds of positive messages to the world.

In this episode, I'll talk to Jenny Thor, a Swede who lives in Australia. I first met Jenny at a Swedish Christmas market in Brisbane, Australia where I used to sell my Scandinavian inspired wooden Christmas decorations. Jenny had her table next to me selling her origami and crochet creation from the word hello we were friends and couldn't stop laughing. I remember from the first meeting that I thought that there is no one happier and positive person than Jenny. She was also the first person I interviewed for this podcast. Here Jenny shares with me how growing up with eczema, asthma, and very bad allergies, so bad she went to the hospital many times in anaphylactic shock. She was pretty much allergic to everything and very dependent on the help from her parents even when she got older until one day she decided to move to London.

I also talk to Ulrika Eriksson, a Swedish journalist living and working in Australia. As a photographer, I have worked with Ulrika on different assignments for Scandinavian magazines. These jobs have enabled us to travel and cover editorial stories all over Australia, from Canberra, Sydney to Queensland and the tip of Tiwi Island in the Northern Territory. This interview is all about what happens when you one day decide to leave your partner and the challenges you can face moving to another country where you know no one. How do you get to know new people? What if your place is so small you get claustrophobic? What do you do if you feel lonely and all you do is crying every night? Does it get better?
