The Should List
We create many lists in a day and a week to help us be productive and accomplish many tasks. However, there is a list that we create that most of us don't know about that is not very helpful. The "Should" List. Yes, that should sounds a lot like a familiar cuss word we know, and that's just what a should list is. In the words of Corrine Crabtree, "Anytime we think someone "should" do something, we automatically put them on our 'shit' list." Our lists can get pretty long with all the "shoulding" we do, and one person who most definitely ends up on this list is ourselves. Whenever we "should" we judge. We judge the other person and end up judging ourselves for the judging. Join in for this week as we talk more about this "should" list and how we can eliminate the list by changing "should" to "could."

Endings and Beginnings
Life is full of endings and beginnings. We have the beginning of a new day and the end of a new day. We have the beginning of summer and the end of summer, and we have the beginning of a new school year just around the corner. Many times we resist the beginnings and endings, but they are part of this mortal journey! We can sometimes find ourselves stuck in the emotional roller coaster of beginnings and endings, so in today's podcast, we are going to discuss what we can do to help ourselves out! First, remember beginnings and endings are part of this crazy life. Second, practice gratitude! Join in this week as we discuss what gratitude can do to help us with our beginnings and endings.

Ed Mylett said, "Most lessons in life are caught not taught." This was one of those statements that hit me like a brick! It's so true! Join me this week as we discuss some of the lessons I "caught" from my parents, and the ones that I am working to teach my own kids. The key is patience! They may take catching you in the act over and over and over again! And will you continue to do those things you wish to teach, even if they never catch your vision?? Listen in to explore this topic!

Moving Forward Despite Feeling Terrible
We all have situations going on in our lives that are humming in the background. In those times our minds will create some "background" music. You know the kind that we hear in stores, restaurants, and offices. Sometimes it is really loud, sometimes it is softer. Some days the noise in our heads is louder than others. So then what?! What can we do, but move forward despite feeling terrible? The beautiful thing that happens is we then become "wounded healers" as Steve Young says. In becoming a wounded healer, we too are healed.

Emotional Empowerment: Recognizing and Responding
In last week's episode, we discussed Empowering Ourselves and Others by CHOOSING rather than believing we HAVE to. This week: Emotional Empowerment. What is that? We have the ability to CHOOSE our emotions and act accordingly. We often give other people the ability to dictate how we feel by saying things like, "They hurt my feelings." No one can control how you feel without your consent. That is up to you. How do we emotionally empower ourselves then? First, we recognize the emotion. Second, we respond by allowing it, processing it, and using our senses to help us. And third, we choose our response and move forward. Join in this episode as we discuss all the ways we can cope with emotions, why we have them, what it means to be "past feeling" and more!

Empowering Ourselves and Others
In this episode, we discuss what it means to empower ourselves and how to do that! It comes down to one simple thing, making choices. We can regain so much power by making choices consciously. One simple way we can do this is by shifting the way we speak to ourselves and to others and saying "I choose to" rather than "I have to." This one simple trick will help us feel the energy that comes with empowering ourselves! Listen In!

Work, Play, Teach, Connect
This weekend we went as a family to see the new Top Gun movie! In the movie and the original, there were times that the airplanes were in a tailspin. Sometimes in our lives, we can feel like we too are in a tailspin or a little out of control. In those moments, it is helpful to get down to what is most important. We can ask ourselves, "What matters to me at this time?" As we are shifting into summer, I asked myself this question and came up with four items that matter: work, play, teach, and connect. Join with me this week as I discuss this and we dig into each area and share some ideas on how to incorporate them into our lives to get out of our tailspin! 10 Benefits of Play Outliers by Malcom Gladwell Work is a Blessing by David O.

The Experience of Others
Everyone has their own thoughts and feelings in any given circumstance, thus creating their experience. We all SEE things differently. Sometimes we don't always agree with another's perspective and how they are perceiving their experience, and we try to change or control them. Other times we try to prevent an unpleasant experience. It doesn't always work out. In fact, most of the time it creates problems for us and for them. When we try to control another person's experience, we may end up preventing some experiential learning and creating a disconnect. Listen in to this podcast to learn more and discover how to "mourn with those that mourn" and "comfort those in need of comfort."

Contribute Where You Can
What do we do when we are in sticky situations that we have no control over? What about when our loved ones are struggling, and we can't "fix" the situation? Ask this simple question: How can I contribute? In this episode, we discuss this question and how it can help us be open, curious, and receptive to find answers and receive promptings to help both parties out! We benefit, and so does the receiver.
