Do you look forward to the Holidays or do you dread the upcoming family gatherings, the worry about money or deciding on the perfect gifts? What if this year could be different?

What if you could step back from the drama and pretend the crazy scenes in front of you were like watching a movie?

045 - It's Not About You
I talk about the fact that we cannot control someone else’s behavior. It makes us crazy to keep trying. When we back off, stop controlling and focus on our own issues, we can find peace. When we come from this place of peace we are inspired to say the right things. We get clear about our boundaries and learn to say “no” to allowing others to treat us bad.

040 Hiding Addictions Never Helps
When we hide our addict’s issues we aren’t doing them any favors. In Patrick Kennedy’s latest book A Common Struggle, he talks about how hiding this “enemy within” blocks recovery for people and society. It’s time we look at these issues in a way that removes the stigma of this being a character issue instead of a chemical issue.

039 Handling Our Feelings
When we grow up not learning how to deal with our feelings we become afraid to let them surface. We suppress them instead of expressing them or we escape from them by turning on the TV, eating or drinking too much, going shopping—anything to keep us from feeling them. But if you can sit with the feeling without judgment or resistance, it fades. Then there is only peace.

036 Staying in the Past
In this episode I talk about staying stuck in our pasts and remaining victims. Groups like Al-anon or Coda can help us find a community of kindred spirits but if we stay too long does it keep us in the past rehashing all our old abuses? The steps in these groups start with connecting to your Higher Power which is the key to moving forward toward a happier, more peaceful life. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past. You can’t go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches. Richard Dotts

Do you run around from one task to the next trying to accomplish all the things that you feel you “should do?” Could you relax and move into a place of calm where everything falls into place and you feel inspired to do the next thing? Working from this place of calm is especially good for codependents. We are able to keep good boundaries and we don’t over-give to the point of exhaustion. This is an amazing way to live. Listen and learn how.

34 Are Our Expectations in Relationships Too Much?
Do we expect the fairytale or the white picket fence when we get into a relationship? Do we expect our lives to be like a romantic movie or something we read in a book? I know I had unrealistic ideas about how my marriage “should be.” Focusing on the good parts of your relationship can shift it to a better place. "If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." -Dr. Wayne Dyer.
