Following a day of rain, it’s all smiles and sunshine on the mountain for Day 136.

Podcast Recap

The unexpected rain causes me to change the day of my hike. I ponder the effects of rigidity and over-flexibility in my life. Dawny greets our new BCs from last show and updates us on her health. Kevin replies to Sue from the U.K. and Dawny who both supported him on the Bravery Report. The importance of BCs supporting each other and 6 tips to help do that. Welcome to new BC Mar. Dawny has special Foolish Fun for bird watchers! Special guest Mark and I reminisce about the many different shades we’ve experienced in our 23 years of marriage.

I spy an unexpected fellow traveler on the trail.

Podcast Recap

I tell my heart-pounding deer tale. I let go of time pressure and discover how time can be a guidepost instead. I share a few paragraphs from my latest blog post about overcoming fear and Dawny’s courageous response. We say hello to new BCs Taylor and Amanda who posted on the Compulsive Overeating Diary page on FB. Comments from last week’s show from BCs Dawny and Rabbit. A touching and brave call from new BC Kevin who last called the bravery hotline on day 130. I ponder grief, connection and how we grow into new identities.

Sunny day on the hiking trail through the foothills.

Another beautiful day on the trail down the mountain. No deer shared this part of the journey.

I’m back up the mountain waxing philosophical.

Podcast Recap

Today is about voices – voices we share, voices we miss, voices that bring our stories to life. And sometimes, Life forces you to let go and face up to how fear of failure can rob you of opportunities. I ponder my own lifelong fear of failure through an emotional tale about my mom’s passing and how that impacted my progress with voice-acting. You will hear a story my mom wrote when I was a kid that I voiced right after she passed to help with my grief and an interview we did together for an episode of Daily Adventure Tales – just so I could hear her voice once more. I’ll share how my voice-acting journey is at present and a snippet from my first professional commercial demo. We will also hear the voices and stories of five BCs, Mary, Susie, Kevin from NY, Jodi from the South, and a BC who is anonymous, who used Speakpipe or called the Bravery Hotline. We’ll wrap up with exciting news from our singer-songwriter in residence Fionna Lane and hear the title track from her new alum, Like a Babe.
Beautiful bright blue sky filled with puffy white clouds above the foothills.

This is the stunning view from the next-to-top Zen place on the day I recorded 130.
