Glad to be back on the podcast rock and surprised at what I’m letting go of today!

Podcast Recap

YAY! Wearing sneakers again, so back to the podcast rock. After hearing my surprising answer to Stéfanie’s secret topic of the day on Day 142, I’m inspired to clean up my subconscious. Comments following last show from Dawny and Stéfanie from Quebec. A great idea for us to be more positive based on Stéfanie’s comment. Thanks to Amazon Shoppers and to BC Mary S. for joining me on a project that’s just between us. Mark the Meditator returns and he shares some vulnerable truths from his heart.

Podcast Recap

I let go of life on autopilot and learn to see the miracles all around. We celebrate a HUGE bravery report moment for BC Petra. Welcome to New BCs Stephanie from West Virginia who reached out on FB and Theresa who posted on Day 9. We get a sample of comments from Mary S., BC Laura R (soon to be S), Dawny and Amy from WI. Thanks again to Amazon shoppers. Big thanks also to Kindred Spirit, Josephine who left a kind review on USA iTunes, and a big, big smooch to BC Mary S. who sent me a heart-touching gift in the mail. I read a snippet of the blog post I wrote about what Mary’s gift meant to me. We meet my friend and new BC JoJo from CA who stopped by the blog to comment.

The famous Next To Top Zen Bench – where I record most of the shows from the mountain.

Caught these small delicate flowers growing up from a cactus-like plant in rocky dry conditions. This inspired me.

Starting up the mountain earlier than usual to take advantage of the early morning temperature and quiet.

Podcast Recap

Throw the Status Quo out the window and embrace change. Good-bye Erin Moran, an iconic actress from my middle and high school years. Extra love for BC Rabbit and Dawny. BC comments about Day 133 from Dawny, Mary S and Susie. Sue from the U.K lets us know how she’s coping with a difficult loss. I read snippets from my latest blog post about DIScouragement. BC Mary S. goes on the bravery report for her voice mail message about bravery and the challenges she’s been having since a foot injury. We ponder tracking food. Does it always lead to diet mentality?

I enjoy the stunning blue skies and golden light during the trek down the mountain.

Feeling proud, brave and stoked that I made it up the mountain.

Podcast Recap

Defeating negative self-talk where we spiral down the hopeless rabbit hole by wishing things away. I come clean about conflicted feelings about day 130. Gratitude to BC Karen for her encouraging note and to BC Susie for her kind phone call. Reading recommendations from Rabbit, Mary S. and me. Hello to new BC Lucie. Dawny makes me laugh with her reaction to my cooking story from the last show. Mary S. surprises me by restarting up the Coffee Klatch! How to send me cards, letters or other physical items. A walk down memory lane about the cool items I’ve received from BCs in the past. A deep and heartfelt comment conversation between Mary S. and me that triggers my bravery and I share the truth about my eating behavior of late and my feelings about it.

Podcast Recap

It’s a happy hike back up to the next to upper Zen Space where I let go of ingratitude to my own self! An exercise to increase gratitude. I play my Pig Whistle to wish BC Sandy a very happy birthday. Dawny does a whole set of awesome Springtime Foolish Fun. Comments by Dawny, Sandy, and Rabbit (love that name) about the last show. A comment of Rabbit’s sparks an idea. Should we have a BC reading list? BC Mary S. saves the day by letting me know about a comments glitch, which I was able to fix. Mary S also wants to know if we BCs are more prone to having a creative side. What do you think? I have a surprising reaction to a couple of compliments. Are we internalizing ageism and sizeism?

Here I am playing Happy Birthday to Sandy on the pig in my studio-guest room. My mic is in front of me right now and I’m recording the song for day 132.
