Shanti Harkness

This week on Women STaRs, we are speaking with Monica Robins. As an Emmy Award-winning reporter with more than 30 years of experience, Monica is no stranger to struggles. Diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2019, she faced the uphill battle of surgery, recovery, and returning to her high-profile career.

She shares how she was able to overcome the devastating news of her diagnosis, how she was able to get through those moments when she felt defeated and depressed, and how attitude and perception helped her to overcome her struggles.

Join us as Monica shares the importance of self-care, the power of recognizing limitations, and the necessity for managing stress (rocking out in two bands and riding her Harley helps her!). All this and more on this episode of the Women STaRs Podcast.

Quotes:

“I would remind myself that someone somewhere else has something way worse than what I'm going through and they're still getting out of bed and being productive, so I have no excuse.”

“I forced myself to be present because you can't fix yesterday, and you don't know what's coming tomorrow.”

“It's okay to get depressed, but I realized the dark hole you find yourself in is really dark, damp, wet, and it doesn't have cable. So, put your shoes (or heels) on and get your butt out of it! That's how I decided I was going to live my life.”

“We're all born, and we all die. What we do in between is what matters.”
