What gives you joy? How do you find joy? What helps you feel better? How can I get through my depression? What do I need to do to feel happy? What makes you happy? Why am I depressed? What can help ease my stress? Can travel make me feel better? How can faith in God help me? Will having faith help improve my mood? Will taking a trip help? What do I need to do to get out of this slump? Will I feel better after going on vacation?

This podcast interview is with the very joyful and happy Dawn Kelly. She is a world traveler,  mom, mentor, publicist, and owner of an amazing smoothie shop The Nourish Spot in Jamaica, Queens, New York. In this episode of the Collective Drift podcast, Dawn tells us about how she’s been able to overcome difficult situations; her trips to Cape Town, South Africa and Phuket, Thailand; and her relationship with her daughter Jade. I especially love how Dawn’s love of international travel has inspired her daughter’s career and love of travel.  Dawn even brings back international recipes to The Nourish Spot. Dawn is at a minimum resilient. Listen to this episode of Collective Drift to learn Dawn’s blueprint for getting through a dark time in your life because she has definitely succeeded and continues to succeed. Her energy is contagious so watch out!

Collective Drift is taking up AARP's challenge to reinvent what it means to age.  Remember, what you do after 50 can be just as amazing as what you've done before 30. It's time to disrupt aging. This is the second of 3 episodes in partnership with AARP highlighting amazing women from around the world who have disrupted aging. Go to aarp.org/disrupt-aging to learn more.

Here are a few of my favorite parts of the interview:

Collective Drift (CD) / Dawn Kelly (DK)

CD: You’re 58, but you feel like you’re 12 years old. Tell us more about that?
DK: I'm still a kid at heart. I'm still full of wonder and curiosity. I'm still full of joy. I love to laugh. I love to play, I love to hug. Although we can't hug during COVID. I like to explore and learn different things. So you know, I've heard ages just a number. And I believe that the way I live, my life showcases that that is actually true. It's how you feel? Not what number characterizes your age?

CD: How are you embodying that?
DK: I like to have fun. I’ve traveled the world. Before COVID, I was always in some foreign distant land. I love to learn. So I'm always engaged in some kind of learning program. And I actually learned that at AARP; AARP taught us that learning is a lifelong journey.  I started working at AARP, when I was 23 years old, I believe. I was still young and naive about a lot of things.
