You're listening to Episode 18 of The Practice of Living as we Intend Podcast.

When I find myself struggling—like getting easily frustrated, feeling tired or like life feels chaotic, unmanageable or I lose my gumption for what I know I am deeply passionate about—I know it’s time to reset and take inventory.

In today's episode, I ask you a few questions as we dive in to check if we're living life on the surface, or living it deep!

I explain what both mean and the importance and reward that living deeper gifts us.

I promise, you don't want to miss this short but valuable episode.

Whether you schedule a few minutes to begin your day or multi-task (aka laundry, workout, walk, dishes....!) while listening for needed renewal, I look forward to being a part of your journey—and you a part of mine!

Summary of Podcast:
You can live a deeper life...

(00:54) As we head into the next few days, will you practice being more cognizant of those around you?

(1:37) There are so many people hurting (even people in our inner tribe and family) and we don’t take the time to address it…

(2:17) Let’s also look within and take some inventory. Ask yourself these questions:

(3:06) When I find myself struggling—easily frustrated, feeling tired or like life feels chaotic, or unmanageable ….

(3:56) But you know. Your head and your heart knows.

(4:40) And so if you’re on the surface right now, don’t give up—you always have the choice to dive in deeper!

(5:18) Living a deeper life doesn’t mean that your life is perfect!

(6:04) You replace a negative thought with a positive one. You remind yourself that you have forgiven a person when old feelings rise up again.

(7:00) I desire the same for you because I know the reward that it brings.

You're listening to Episode 17 of The Practice of Living as we Intend Podcast.

Do you offer yourself what you offer others?

Today I share a story about a difficult 'decade' in my life and how it taught me the importance of 'what do you do when it's just you..'

If we want to thrive in this life we were given, it is vital that we construct who are, and who we intend to be, in the quietest of moments with ourselves.

I promise, you don't want to miss this meaningful episode.

Summary of Podcast:
What do you do when it's just you?

(1:00) I’m so thrilled that you’re joining me in the Podcast today! If you haven’t joined in with the amazing community of women yet, head over to Instagram @beyouandthrivepodcast or @beyouandthrive

(2:51) When I consider blogging and podcasting for Be You and Thrive and when I think about connecting with women on social media, on the phone or in person, I pause to consider my behavior—what is my attitude like when I ‘represent’ Be You and Thrive?

(4:43) How would you describe your attitude as you represent that role in your life?

(6:20) When you’re not interacting with another person, not being mom, boss, colleague, wife, sister, what do you do when it's just you?

(8:10) But for a good decade of my life, while offering these things to others—I wasn’t offering them to myself.

(10:20) I’ll never forget when I took the cape off for good.

(12:52) It was my medal. My reminder that nothing is impossible.

(14:30) Spend meaningful time with yourself—just as you do with others

You're listening to Episode 16 of The Practice of Living as we Intend Podcast.

Pause to consider how you have grown personally, as a woman through the years. Reflect and digest how you are becoming the woman you’ve wanted, the woman you’ve longed for.

The one who takes her next steps in faith.

The one who, yes, has experienced cracks and rough edges by life experiences, but also, the one who intentionally takes away what you can, to learn from the experience and continues to grow.

The one who got past it. The one who got better.

• • •

Join me in this short yet powerful 8 minute episode and let's celebrate the women we are becoming together!

Whether you schedule a few minutes to begin your day or multi-task while listening for needed renewal, I look forward to being a part of your journey—and you a part of mine!

Resources for Growth: I am what I think.

Our mind is powerful—and it will always believe what we tell it. Oh the time, valuable energy and precious thoughts we spend by negatively evaluating ourselves on the day to day. We think about our lack, or weakness, or our significance within the various roles we carry as individual women. We appraise our value, our impact, need, worth or success, and we believe every word we think or say to ourselves.

Summary of Podcast:
Finding Her Here

(00:31) I am becoming the woman I've wanted

grey at the temples, soft-bodied, delighted,

cracked up by life,

with a laugh that's known bitter

but past it, got better,

who knows that whatever comes, she can outlast it.

(1:45) Pause and reflect with me for a moment. Consider how you have grown personally, as a woman through the years.

(2:45) It has meaning to me because I AM beginning to see the woman that I have longed for. And it’s not by coincidence—I choose to find her.

(4:35) There is woman within you who is patiently waiting for you to fully discover her.

(5:30) You have the power to create. You have the ability to nurture.You have the capability to to be renewed

(6:50) You have some daily choices to make!

(7:38) Walk forward in bravery. Be determined and take courage that each choice you make, uncovers ALL that you are!

Summary of Podcast:
Ride the Flats

(00:32) Happy May!! I’m feeling a bit fired up today…And I think it’s because I was without technology last week (no computer or iPhone!)

(2:35) One evening we were discussing some of my projects that are in development stages. I was telling him about my timelines, collaborations and goals.

(4:15)Some of you may know I have a passion for athleticism. I was a personal trainer and cycling instructor for fun on weekends and evenings when I lived in Ann Arbor, MI.

(5:25) When you think of climbing what do you think of? It’s hard work, right? It’s slow and takes a lot of effort. It can be strenuous.

(6:34) “The basic science suggests that you are best to work hard when you are battling up hills or facing into a headwind than when you are speeding along an easy flat section or a downhill part.

(7:47) And do you want to know how they train to better their climbing skills?

(8:55) We can’t possibly learn how to be able to pedal flat out on a climb and make real gains if we’re always climbing…

(10:02) We don’t always have to be climbing. And quite frankly we can’t and there is no gain in it anyway.

(11:32) And I’m raising my hand over here and sharing that I can get stubborn and forget what it takes to climb. Sometimes my hustle mentality thinks I not only need to climb, but I need to do it quickly—and I’m missing the point!! I’m missing the process.

(12:50) Stop wearing yourself out and stop looking around at what others are doing.

(14:00) Learn to develop a cadence that works for you. There are seasons in your life when you’re going to have to dig deep and the pedal strokes are going to be more difficult. Which to me means that to set yourself up for success, you have to intentionally reserve seasons to save energy and prepare.

(15:43) There is and will be no perfect ride.

(17:33) What in your life are you rushing to complete? Or what in your life are you pushing forward, struggling to get to the top of, or trying to figure out?
