Episode 3.01: Caring for Yourself as an Act of Rebellion with Mira Mariah

Mira Mariah

Hello loves.

We’re officially in a new decade and a new season of the podcast!

I wanted to start season three of The Point of Pain with Mira Mariah because she is someone I admire so much and she is breaking through ceilings I didn’t even realize were there.

Mira is an amazing tattoo artist (in fact, she’s Ariana Grande’s tattoo artist!), a mother, a former speaker at Chronicon, and an amazing woman who has been featured in places like Allure, Nylon, Refinery29, etc. She also happens to have only one leg.

In this episode, we discuss why I was blown away by Mira when I first discovered her, the experiences that shaped Mira into the bold person she is today, why we need to break the cycle of isolation that many people with disabilities or chronic illnesses experience, why she focuses on the solutions to a problem and not the cause, what it’s like to be a mother as a disabled woman, the profound recent loss of a beautiful spirit and disability advocate that she was blessed to be able to call her friend, and so much more!

The Pain Points We Explore In This Episode:

  • Why Mira said she felt like an alien or the only girl on the planet at times growing up
  • Why she considers her dog her angel
  • The impact model and disability advocate Mama Cax had on her
  • Why Mira feels that every bit of luxury and indulgence in her body feels like an act of rebellion
