Ep100: Secrets to Living Happily Ever After

In this 100th episode, I split the Secrets to Living Happily Ever After into five key categories.

It was quite enlightening (and a bit surprising) to spot the patterns.



Show Notes:

I did snap a selfie upon completing the episode. Like I said in the episode, I was not camera ready. HA HA

I also noticed when editing the episode (I did cut out some coughing and sneezing), that I pretty much handled the episode as I originally planned it in my mind. I had wanted to do more prep work to tell you how many episodes covered each of the “Happily Ever After” categories I shared.

My modified plan (which I did NOT end up doing) was going to be to read you a few of the “Happily Ever After” secrets and talk about them individually.

Overall, despite the sniffling and coughing, I’m satisfied with this episode. So once again, just showing up (featured in Ep085 and which would fall into the “freedom of choice” and “having courage to be yourself / trusting yourself / believing in yourself” categories) proves to be one secret to living happily ever after.

Ep092: Be Kind to Yourself

When you just aren’t feeling “it,” when it comes to accomplishing a task, do you push thru the pain, give in to the desire to skip it, or beat yourself up no matter which choice you make?

Here’s what I did when an “easy” mountain was close to sending me running for my car.

Ep091: When Your Body Speaks, Do You Listen?

My energy level was zero. I thought I knew what I needed to do to get it back to where I wanted and needed it to be. Then it occurred to me that my body was telling me what it needed, but I wasn’t listening.

Has this ever happened to you?

Ep089: Don’t Call Me, Schedule Me

If you feel a lack in your relationships, perhaps rather than waiting for them to call you when they have time to meet, you can call them, I challenge you to be pro-active and start scheduling times to meet with friends and family members.
