You're listening to Episode 12 of The Practice of Living as we Intend Podcast.

Where do we find honesty, real values, real love and real life? Where do you find bonded friendships, happiness and your gifts to serve others?

I don’t know about you, but I crave realness. I think because for so many years I didn’t realize the pure gift of freedom that honoring myself and therefore living just as I am (in the now) would give—that I almost want to make up for it and be 101% authentic!

In this episode, we explore what authentically living our lives offer. Could it possibly bring the freedom in our lives that we crave? Join me and listen, reflect and be inspired, as we practice ‘Living as we Intend’ 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!

Please leave a review and subscribe to the podcast! Thank you in advance.

Summary of Podcast:
Freedom in living authentically

(00:30) I have a visual for you. I’m sitting in a my living room at a round table with coffee table books stacked up and flowers in a vase in the center. Honestly, it’s pushed to the side at the moment, because I’m recording in front of it.

(2:21) I don’t know about you, but I crave realness. I think because for so many years I didn’t realize the pure gift of freedom that honoring myself and therefore living just as I am (in the now) would give—that I almost want to make up for it and be 101% authentic!

(3:39) When we practice living authentically as our selves, we begin to realize the reward of calling on every ounce of bravery that we have, in order to tell any and all of our feelings of inadequacy to take a hike.

(4:37) Authenticity offers you a roadmap for life. As we begin to make authentic choices for ourselves, we will begin to genuinely follow our heart, our faith, our values and ethics. These intentional choices will eventually direct a path for our lives.

(5:55) It offers you stronger relationships with others. Living from a place of authenticity allows you to share your pure and genuine self with others.

(7:57) With each decision you choose, to live in the freedom of being yourself, that door opens an inch and it opens another inch with the next decision, and the next..

(8:57) I was given a book in my 20’s called the Velveteen Principles and have since gifted it to others since. It’s based on the children’s story about the Velveteen rabbit (perhaps I am dating myself!).

(10:59) Where do we find honesty, real values, real love and real life? Where do we find bonded friendships, happiness and our gifts to serve others?

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. Join me and listen, reflect and be inspired, as we practice ‘Living as we Intend’ together.

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 02 of The Practice of Living as we Intend Podcast. Today's podcast is about making choices. On a daily basis we make choices—and many without even thinking. And I wonder if we truly became more aware of how we chose to respond to situations that we are confronted with—if our lives might be different?

Let’s dig a little deeper together as we practice becoming more aware of all of the choices that we are offered each day.

Summary of Podcast:

(0:00) On a daily basis we make choices—and many without even thinking. And I wonder if we truly became more aware of how we choose to respond to situations that we are confronted with,  how our lives might change or how our lives might be different.

(1:24) I believe that we can 're-define' how we think about these areas that we get stuck in, our difficulties and challenges that we are presently experiencing.

(2:47) But what’s so interesting about that thought process, is that it is so ingrained in each of us to not choose to see the positive. In reality, choosing to stay in your difficulty, will be more hurtful and will be more damaging to your future then if you choose otherwise.

(3:38) And so when we are confronted with making a choice—such as not allowing a hard time in life to crush us or to bring us discontentment or cause us to lose our hopes and our dreams—we have the ability to allow our thoughts and actions to take over and redefine our circumstance.

(4:08) I’m asking you and I to dig a little deeper together. There is so much more out of this life that we can experience by the choices that we decide to make and I believe that you and I are not maximizing that full potential yet.

So join me as we practice becoming more aware of all of the choices that we are offered each day. As we improve our awareness, each difficulty “which I will refer to as opportunities” can be life-changing.
