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!

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?
