Summary of Podcast:

(00:32) I’m back from an unexpected whirlwind. Earlier this week, My mother called me at 3:14 PM, which is the time that I was born 45 years ago. My father and she have called me ever since I can remember.

(1:37) That day 'life happened,' and I experienced both the ebb and the flow. I felt so much love and was honored by all of the kind birthday sentiments I received, and then that afternoon my heart became heavy as I received notice that my father had a stroke.

(3:21) And it got me thinking and I’m going to be daring and speak for us all, because we are all human—we forget to pause and wholeheartedly feel, love, and share the depth of this life, during the everyday grind. Why does it take these moments, these difficulties to seemingly knock us off our feet to be reminded of these things?

(4:15) And so over the next few episodes of this podcast, I am going to share 10 practices that I personally live by, which has caused me to learn how to live each day with more intention.

(6:45) Turning off autopilot has been such an important process in my life. We all know that we can't change what happens in our future, but if we don’t turn off autopilot, we have lost our ability to properly navigate our ‘now’.

(9:16) As I continue to share these 10 practices with you over the next few episodes, you’ll begin to understand that each lead to a process, that unveils more about who you are and will help you sort out these ‘emotions’ and questions. It’s why the practice of living intentionally is so important to me.

You're listening to Episode 05 of The Practice of Living as we Intend Podcast. Today in the podcast, I’m sharing all the details about last week's travels. I shed some tears with you as I talk about my time of reflection while gone, and I also announce a new launch coming this Spring that I would love for you to be a part of.

Summary of Podcast:

(00:32) I am back from my 5 days of reflection!

(1:50) I departed the next morning and headed to the Yucatán peninsula in Mexico —I love Mexico. It really has a special place in my heart.

(3:27) So when my husband shared about his upcoming travels, I thought, ‘This is it. It’s perfect timing.’ And I’ll be honest with you, I had some doubt arise.

(5:11) Have you ever thought that you’re not enough? Or observed others work on social media and thought, ‘She is so much more gifted than I…?’

(7:40) You see, we forget about all the work it took to be where we are today in our individual lives. We forget to continue to recognize and celebrate our change and our growth.

(11:40) I looked up the definitions of optimism and had to smile big: confidence, certainty, enthusiasm, happiness, calmness, cheer, trust, encouragement—and the list goes on.

(12:53) I chose to take 5 simplistic and ordinary days and they became 5 extraordinary days and a memory I will carry for my lifetime. And I want to offer the same opportunity to you!

(13:58) Within this Podcast’s episode description, you’ll find (2) links. One is a link to sign up, in order to stay in the know about when this program will be offered (Spring is a great time for renewal!) and the second link is a downloadable resource for you that shares five tactics to use when navigating through unexpected transition in life.

You're listening to Episode 04 of The Practice of Living as we Intend Podcast. In today's podcast, I’m authentically sharing something with you that I’m going to do this coming week—that I’ve never done before. It means so much to me in regards to the practice of ‘living as we intend,’ and it’s also symbolic. I have a question for you and something I’m asking you to do with me as well.

Join me and listen, laugh and perhaps shed a tear or two, in this meaningful episode, as we practice ‘Living as we Intend’ together.

Summary of Podcast:

(00:29) This podcast is all about the practice of ‘Living as we Intend’ and so today I’m going to share something with you in regards to what’s going on in my life at the moment.

(1:21) Let me give you some back-story: Is there anyone that’s currently in your life, or that you’ve met along the way, who is has what I’ll define, as a ‘no fear mentality’?

(2:57) I personally will never forget that race because I realized the symbolic healing it also had on my life. The tears shed as I really allowed myself to feel the sorrow of what I imagined his struggle must have felt like, also allowed me to release some of my past struggles.

(4:42) So may I remind you that this girl speaking to you right now, grew up in a small town in Michigan.

(5:58) These difficulties that we endure are life-changing and are actually the seasons in life where we can grow the most as individuals.

(6:36) One thing in life that’s really important to me is that I continue to overcome my thoughts of doubt.

(8:00) I plan on laughing and I plan on smiling and probably shedding some tears with no one else but the girl who’s yapping away at you right now on a podcast she never in a million years thought she’d be sharing.

(9:45) Do me a favor and ask yourself this simple question..

You're listening to Episode 03 of The Practice of Living as we Intend Podcast. Today on the podcast our focus is 'success' and what it means to us as individuals. When I think of ‘success’ I define it a bit differently than most. I’m not talking about achieving wealth or fame. I’m talking about the success that is bred from a conscious choice to move from your past, and into your present. It’s being accountable and using the gifts and talents that you have to offer. It’s the responsibility of creating your own happiness, or intentionally adjusting your life’s direction in any given moment, when you know you should yield, stop or turn around. Success is being fully engaged in your actions and your reactions.

So how do we achieve this type of success?

Summary of Podcast:

(00:26) Before I launched the new website at the beginning of the year, I shared a post on my social media feed that said, ‘I’m launching my website tomorrow—Yes this is an accountability post!’

(1:03) There are various types of accountability. Unfortunately I think in general, the definition of ‘being accountable’ has gotten a negative reputation.

(2:00) And when I use the word, ‘success’ I’m defining it a bit differently than most. I’m not talking about achieving wealth or fame.

(3:15) Today we’re going to focus on three practices that can help you maneuver your way to the rewards of success, that stems from accountability.
