Ep085: Show Up in Life

Do you ever experience the physical symptoms of anxiety and stress? A churning stomach, a headache, nausea? Do you claim those symptoms as being sick to avoid going somewhere, doing something, or meeting someone? Or do you show up and do the best you can?

Ep084: The Most Difficult Step

“The first step is the hardest.” So states common motivational quotations. But is it really?

Today, I share why I think the first step is not necessarily the hardest, which step is and why.

Do you agree or disagree?

Ep082: Step Back to Propel Yourself Forward

Another lesson learned while hiking the Appalachian Trail. I was facing a 20-foot wall of granite.

At first, second, and third glance it seemed impossible to climb.

But then I took a step back.

And that made all the difference.



Show Notes:

Take a peek at some pictures of the trail we hiked and the views we had.

Ep081: Sometimes Life is Hard

Today, I share another adventure that Earl and I had on the hiking trails in New Hampshire. Sometimes, even when you know an activity will be hard, it surprises you just how hard it is. It’s important to remember that how you approach life’s difficulties will impact your level of happily ever after.

Who is Sarah Monroe?

In this 22nd of 30 Bits of Bravery… a FB Live challenge that I have modified to meet my own needs… I introduce you to Sarah Monroe, a character I created a few months ago for a creative writing assignment.

She has grown as a character and as a part of my life. She is giving me the chance to share some of my own life stories through her actions.

This video tells you more about it.

If you are interested in a chance to read some of these earliest drafts of her stories, LIKE my Donna Doyon Facebook page and stay tuned for more information on this.
