Ep034: Accept and Embrace Your Imperfection

I don’t know if you’ve noticed… but I am not perfect.

I know… it’s hard to believe. But there it is.

And you know what? I bet you aren’t perfect either.

And do you know what else… do you know the MOST IMPORTANT “WHAT ELSE” is?

It doesn’t matter!

We are all imperfect beings. Accepting our own imperfections and learning to embrace the imperfections of others is one of the keys to happiness and fulfillment.

In this week’s podcast episode, I’ll share a list of my imperfections and how I stopped caring about them (or am trying not to care so much about them). Enjoy!

Ep026: Books Contain the Answers You Need

Anyone who has known me for long, knows I enjoy reading. I enjoy fiction for relaxation and non-fiction for self and business development.

Books were a key part of my relationship with my kids when they were little. They became more important as my children grew into teenagers. I loved seeing my children read and would frequently ask if I could read their books when they were finished.

This accomplished a few things:

  1. It showed them that I was interested in what they were interested in. We’d have great discussions after I finished reading their books.
  2. It taught them both the importance of not spoiling books (or movies) for someone who hasn’t read/seen them yet. 🙂
  3. It opened my eyes to genres and authors that I probably would not have explored on my own.

BOOKS. ARE. AMAZING!

Ep021: The 5-Day “Reclaim Your Time” Challenge

Time management. There are books written on the topic; classes taught on the topic. It is something most of us want to become better at, but yet we don’t have the time or take the time to figure out a better way to do things.

In today’s episode I am introducing a new audio challenge program that will soon be released (hopefully it will be available upon publication of this episode) to help you reclaim some wasted time in your day. The goal is to free up 30 to 60 minutes each day so you will have time to consistently pursue activities to improve your health, relationships, or overall sense of satisfaction with your life.

The time to reclaim your time is now!

Are you afraid to talk to your friends?

Has someone ever said something that hurt your feelings? Did you share your story with a different friend? Perhaps ask for some advice on how to handle the situation?

This happened to me recently and I realized how often I hear the same the types of stories from people.

It makes me wonder why it’s so hard to talk to our friends when they say or do something that hurts us. And that’s the topic for this week’s video.

How do you approach friends who have hurt your feelings by things they’ve said or done? Share your tips and strategies in the comments section below. Your experiences may help improve someone else’s relationships!

Have an amazing day!

 

Ep010: The Jar of Life

How do you manage your time and energy each day? Do you have enough of each to be sure the important things in your life are taken care of? Do you know how to identify the important things from the less important and the insignificant?

Today, I share the story of The Jar of Life and challenge you to make sure you are fitting the most important things into your life.



I start the episode by sharing my own version of the Jar of Life, with a tale of fitting everything I need for winter camping into my suddenly-it-seems-so-small backpack.

How do you fit a tent, a cold weather sleeping bag, winter snow clothes, food, first aid supplies and more into a pack?

You start with the biggest items first. Then pack the rest in and around the big stuff.
