Hope and beauty have a lot in common. They can work together, one can inspire the other, and they can both encourage someone to take action. All three are true for this week’s guest, Nina Kins.
After a number of very difficult life circumstances, Nina was just starting to get back on her feet when she received a cancer diagnosis. A fighter, she put her head down and went to battle, but she didn’t think a lot about having hope of getting out the other side. At the same time, she watched many other cancer patients, many with much bleaker outcomes, exude hope in every doctor’s waiting room she sat in.
Eventually, Nina started to see hope in her situation. And some of that hope came from the beauty of watching others fight.
Now cancer free, Nina continues to navigate this new life she finds herself in and is digging back into childhood to tie hope and beauty together in a new podcast. Her new perspective is helping her to align her walk with her talk as she brings a love of beauty, in all its forms, to others.
Nina and I are so aligned in how we look at hope and beauty and the science behind it. If you’ve been a long-time listener, you’re going to be nodding along as you listen.
