Ep063: 3 Tips to Change “I Should” into “I Will”

You know you SHOULD be taking certain steps to improve your health and happiness. But yet you don’t.

These 3 tips will help you begin the transition to living a healthier and happier lifestyle… even when you don’t want to. 🙂



Show notes:

Although I didn’t mention “Episode 48: All or Nothing or How About Something In-between” in this podcast episode, as I was mentioning that doing something is better than doing nothing, I knew it was a familiar concept. 🙂

If you’d like to learn a bit more about the impact our brain’s chemicals may have on our food choices, check out this information. I thought it was pretty enlightening ==> How do brain chemicals affect emotional eating?

And here’s the video on the “I should” or “I should not” game I created. 🙂

Ep062: Are you missing opportunities?

Have you ever said, “I always wanted to do that” when a friend shared some experience with you? Perhaps they showed you a purchase from a trendy store you’d always wanted to visit, or raved about a popular restaurant you never seemed to get to.

I consider all of these things that show up on your radar as opportunities to enrich your life. For whatever reason, you are attracted to them.

In this week’s episode, I offer 4 key reasons why you may be putting off these experiences that could enrich your life (even in the smallest ways).

Isn’t it time for you to do those things?



Occasionally while editing an episode of Reflections of a Recovering Ugly Duckling, I realize I skipped a point I had wanted to make, needed to clarify something I said, or wished I had said something I overlooked. So I started recording videos of those missed opportunities. Here are some additional thoughts about this week’s episode: Missed opportunities podcast

Ep053 – The Seedstalk of Courage

Pursuing a dream is like living a fairy tale. You feel hopeful, you feel scared, you feel challenged. You seek help, you receive help (sometimes from unlikely sources). You keep believing in the magic. And of course, you live happily ever after.

In this week’s episode, I take a look back at the first 15 months of creating my dream life.

Meet my Master Gardener (aka business coach)

Talking with business coach Priscilla Hansen Mahoney, Blazing Trails Coaching, was just what I needed to try building my home-based business again. She understood my fears, my doubts, and my concerns. She helped me expose those fears and face them with a courage I was afraid to show. (Ironic, isn’t it?) She encouraged me to embrace my doubts and address my concerns. She told me what I’ve told so many others: You can do this! If you are interested in starting or growing your business, and want/need some guidance, give Priscilla a call.
You can also find her on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BlazingTrailsCoaching/
