Ep074: The House that Built Me

The family home… does that evoke a sense of love, warmth, and security? Or does it make you feel sad, dark, or lonely?

Several months ago, my sister told me she and her husband were going to sell what had been the family home. When our mother became sick about eight years ago, my sister and brother-in-law moved in to provide care for her. Six years ago our mother died. Now it was time to let go of a house that was too big, with a yard that was too time-consuming to maintain.

I didn’t experience much of an emotional reaction. In today’s episode I reflect on why that is and whether it matters.

Ep073: Go with the Flow or Walk Your Own Path

Too often people find themselves drifting thru life as if riding an inflatable tube down a river. But what if you don’t want to go where the river will take you? Do you dare to cross the river on your own and follow your own path?

The choice is always yours.



Show Notes:

I mentioned the book, Anatomy of a the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Power and Healing by Caroline Myss.

Ep070: What about God?

As a Christian, I had felt conflicted about pursuing a recent interest in the world of intuitive readings, oracle cards, crystals, and spirit guides. In this episode, I share how I resolved those conflicts and declare my believe in these tools from God.

Ep069: Be Your Own Garden

Personal development is similar to a flower garden. You can add more color, texture, height, or depth to it.

If your life feels too calm and comfortable, you can replace or add activities that offer more excitement and fun. If your life feels too overwhelming and chaotic, you can replace or add activities that restore order and peace.

Sometimes these changes may last for only a short season, other activities may be part of your life for decades.

It’s your life. Fill it with activities that make you feel fresh and alive. Fill it with people who make you feel loved and cherished.



Show Notes:

Here’s a picture of my beautiful Hibiscus. The overhang from the window forces them to lean out away from the protection of the house. It has been my “plan” for the past many years to move them to the side of my condo, where they will be better supported. But even though I have neglected to do this, they thrive each year.
