One Last Thing with Katie Dalebout

In each of our issues, One Last Thing is where we ask just a couple of burning questions to one of our contributors or interview subjects.

This month we thought we'd turn the lens on Katie Dalebout, author of Let It Out: A Journey Through Journaling (the book that rocked our co-founder Grace’s world).

DIW: Katie, what’s the most embarrassing song on your Spotify playlist?

Katie: No shame, but I do listen to Drake's song Child's Play more than I'd care to admit, at least this summer.

DIW: What lesson do you wish you had learned earlier?

Katie: That being real, vulnerable, and authentic is all people want from me. I wish I would have known earlier that being myself is the most attractive way to be and people will like and respect me for being real with them more than trying to be what I think that want.

DIW: Who do you find inspiring?

Katie: So many people: Tavi Gevinson, Josh Radnor, Pete Holmes, Alexi Wasser, Gabrielle Bernstein.

DIW: What do you think is your weirdest quirk?

Katie: I know ever single line of Rent by heart.

DIW: What can you never compromise on?

Katie: Trying to become more of myself every single day.

DIW: Since our theme is self discovery this month, what is something you were surprised to recognize about yourself?

Katie: I was surprised to recognize that I both need time alone and time with others equally and if I have too much of one or the other I feel out of balance.

Through her writing, workshops, and podcasts, millennial blogger, yoga teacher, and podcast host Katie Dalebout explores creativity is a gateway to developing a positive body image and true holistic wellness. She’s a contributor to Refinery29, Mind Body Green, and her work has been featured in Teen Vogue, Yahoo Health, and The Daily Mail.
