17. How to Rebuild When Your Dreams Fall Apart with Lien Ta

The pandemic has forced many of us to stop - stop going out, stop seeing friends, stop doing the things that bring us joy. And when we all stopped eating out, it affected millions of restaurant workers in America, including restaurateur Lien Ta. Lien had to close the doors to her first restaurant, Here's Looking at You, and find new ways to keep her second one afloat. How do you move forward when the future of what you worked hard for is out of your control? This episode’s practice is about grappling with change, grieving expectations, and giving yourself options when you’re forced to shift course.     Resources from the show If you’re in the LA area, visit Lien’s restaurants, Here’s Looking At You (which just recently reopened!) and All Day Baby.    Want to connect?
