Episode 22 The Practice of Living as we Intend Podcast

Five minute power-packed episodes to help you reset!!

There are so many moments within the day that I intentionally pause in order to reset my thinking, my actions, my mood, my motivation or lack there of.  I believe we need tools to continually practice being the women we intend to be and resources that will inspire us when we need it the most. And my passion is to offer you more of just that!

So today I’m excited to introduce to you:  Thrive for 5!

A new series of 5 minute episodes that will be packed with truths, greatness and motivation, to strengthen our practice of intentional living, to inspire, offer hope and even ignite bravery when we need it most.

When you know you need to press the reset button, I’ll be here waiting for you in the Podcast, to offer resources of love and hope. Growth, change, becoming the women we are intended to be—takes time and work. And we can do this together!

I'm so happy you're here! See you in Episode 22!

You're listening to Episode 21 of The Practice of Living as we Intend Podcast.

In the last episode of the podcast, I shared about my father who went through a battle with cancer in 2009. After years of surgeries, he had to make a decision and had his shoulder and arm amputated. I spoke of how he endured through this difficulty, and also through it, found strength, new perspective and a more loving and giving life.

Over the last several months he has been going through some health issues and yesterday, I received a phone call that his cancer has returned.

Today I talk (raw and real) about how we can adjust our reaction in difficult times. I hope this podcast helps you through your challenging experiences in life. And I am here for you, so please reach out in any way.

You are important to me!

Summary of Podcast:

Adjusting your reaction

(00:40) I am deeply passionate about each of us allowing ourselves to be who we were intended. To live in the freedom of being uniquely you and to reap the benefits of thriving in all areas of your life.

(1:30) Over the last several months he has been going through some health issues and today I received a phone call that his cancer has returned.

(3:00) I need to share with you today that this podcast and the practice of living as we intend isn’t just to allot us direction in life or necessarily to get us through the easy stuff…

(4:46) I want you to know today that my heart is absolutely breaking. But I also want you to know that I have experienced peace of mind in the midst of this storm.

(6:35) There is hope to be found in our darkest hour.

(8:11) And so begin giving yourself time to digest, before you react to the circumstance you are given. Of course, if it’s an emotional and raw situation, by all means allow yourself to be emotional and authentic and raw and real with it.

(10:09) And so call upon your tribe. Don’t hide from them. And as you practice taking these actions, and begin releasing your “why” as Jenna did in her story, she released her “why me”, you will begin to find your peace of mind.

(12:00) And I am here, present, through The Practice of Living as we Intend podcast, to share it with you!

You're listening to Episode 10 of The Practice of Living as we Intend Podcast.

Have you ever gone through something in life and felt like throwing up your hands as if in ‘I surrender mode?’ or thought to yourself, ‘What else could possibly happen?

Today in the podcast, I definitely get a little emotional as I share some personal 'raise the white surrender flag' experiences with you. I also share why I believe we have a choice to evolve from them and how to do it.

This is life. It's full of the 'what else could possibly happen' stuff—and it's also full of the 'how amazing that this happened' stuff!

There is a reason why I practice living my life with intention. And I share it with you today, as I celebrate my 20th podcast episode!!

I would be honored if you would leave a review and subscribe to the podcast! Today is the 20th episode and I am celebrating this journey with you!! Thank you in advance. I appreciate you!!

Summary of Podcast:

Are you Evolving or Revolving?

(00:53) Have you ever gone through something in life and felt like throwing up your hands as if in ‘I surrender mode?’  or thought to yourself, ‘What else could possibly happen?’

(2:27) If we take the growth on board, this is how we individually evolve, find our purpose, find acceptance, healing, and I’ll go as far to say we find our freedom to live.

(4:05) Several years ago my father was diagnosed with bone cancer. I remember his first surgery when the oncologists went in and got all the cancer. But then unfortunately, it reappeared.

(6:09) That period of decision-making was a real difficult one for my father.  I don’t know his exact thoughts, but I know that each of us know what the fear of the unknown is like.

(8:20) He allowed his circumstance to open up the gift of growth in his life.

(10:05) I actually love that phrase 'perfectly imperfect.' Maybe it’s the intense person in me who is content that at least I get to use the word ‘perfect’ some how in my life!

(12:18) In those hardest moments, in the moments where you are confused, in the moments where you have no words, in the moments where you are feeling overwhelmed, in the moments when you don't have a solution, in those moments when you feel like you have a roadblock in front of you—Don’t revolve. Choose to Evolve. This is how I choose to evolve...

(14:15) Which leads me to gratitude. Every day, every hour of the day, we can look around us and see something we should be ecstatically grateful for. But we’re human and we forget. So I also practice seeing differently.

(16:14) And when you are open to it, I promise you that people will cross your path that. You. Need just in the right moment. And it will be completely unexpected and it will also be a complete gift.

(18:15) See the greater good. See the change in you. Note the growth. learn to adapt to evolve to grow and to become the woman that you were intended to be.

You're listening to Episode 19 of The Practice of Living as we Intend Podcast.

I wonder if you'll relate to this podcast? Should I have gone a bit deeper into why we over-think? ....

Oh Over-thinking...(Lol) We all do it. And it harnesses us.

Come on a short journey with me in today's podcast and begin to practice the art of 'under-thinking'...It just may be life-changing..

• • •

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!

1 star or 5?? What?! Please leave a review and subscribe to the podcast! I'm recording these episodes for you!  Thank you in advance. I appreciate you!!

Summary of Podcast:
Are you over-thinking?

(00:33) At the beginning of this week I shared on social media that I was going to practice the art of “under thinking” aka be aware of my over-thinking.

(3:49) Let me share some research with you…. every day the average person has about 50,000 thoughts. And Some researchers put that number at 70,000 thoughts per day.

(5:40) And low and behold, I couldn’t concentrate …

(7:02) Suddenly, I began to feel the water’s cool breeze, and I began to feel the sun shining on my face as it was rising and I could hear the waves clapping so powerfully.

(9:18) And so I want us both to consider how much we over-think.

(11:17) Are you re-hashing yesterday, last month, a meeting you had or a conversation that took place a week ago. I wish I would have. I would be happier if.

(13:40) Next, challenge yourself and challenge what you’re thinking. Is it over-exaggerated? What’s the opposite of this thought?

(15:00) Begin to get your feet wet a little more and engage in productive thoughts that have themes of believing in yourself and believing in others.

(16:16) You can guide your thoughts. With awareness, with mindfulness, and the choice to challenge what you are thinking, You can redirect the inner traffic of your mind
