I’m feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed at the next to top Zen Place early Easter.

Podcast Recap

Our Easter ‘EGG-stravaganza!’ First I ponder my latest tussle with diet mentality, then I share a short clip of Mark and my visit to a familiar spot. I play a snippet of my new podcast, Stories and Voice, featuring the show theme written and sung by BC Fionna, an excerpt of a cowboy story written by Mark and voiced by professional voice actor, Jacques Du Long, and part of the interesting interview I had with Jacques about his history and why he auditioned to voice Mark’s story. Dawny’s EGG-cellent Foolish fun wraps up our Easter visit to the Next to Top Zen place.

Happy Valentine’s Day! I love my bouquet from Mark. He said none of the arrangements at the store were what he thought I would like, so he bought individual flowers that he knew I’d love and arranged them himself. Love that! Making effort shows you care, so I decided to show how much I care for you BCs by making a Valentine’s Day show. xoxoxoxox

Podcast Recap

Happy Valentine’s Day! This bonus show is my valentine to the BCs who have listened, learned, loved and supported me and one another throughout the run of Compulsive Overeating Diary. I’ll ponder letting go of my old self image and read you my latest blog post about acting bravery. You’ll hear about my newest show, Stories and Voice, and how you can be brave and participate too! Our newest brave BC Heba, calls via Speakpipe to ask for support and I’ll share some of the resources I sent her. I find a poem by Thomas Hardy called ‘An Experience’ that really speaks to me for today’s edition of Laurie’s Stories. And we’ll finish up our Valentine treat with another song by Josh Woodward that speaks to my creative wish for all of our hearts, called ‘The Dreamers’.

The Dreamers

by Josh Woodward

Lyrics

Here’s one for dreamers, who took that step
Here’s one for every time they jumped without a net

Here’s one for misfits, who broke the rules
Who feared the boredom more than scorn or ridicule

You’re scared to fly, in the endless sky
When the voices say that there’s no way you’ll ever make the grade

Let’s say you try, and you fall from high
When the sun has set, will you regret the fall?
Or the times you did nothing at all?

Here’s one for magic, that lives within
For seeing beauty in the commonest of things

Here’s one for passion, without restraint
To those who stumble to the ground and feel no shame

[Chorus]

Failure’s always is an option
But doubt’s the fatal toxin
That leaves your dreams to wither on the vine

Why is your brain refusing?
What are you scared of losing?
If you don’t try, you’ll fail every time

Light in the Dark

Well the time has come
I must move on
We have come to journey’s end
So I’ll say “goodbye” and I’ll be on my way
I will carry memories with me
And I’ll always call you “friend”
I’ve a feeling we will meet again one day

Chorus:
Thank you for loving me selflessly
You gave me strength to find what I need
We’ll be apart, but you’re always in my heart
I hope you know
You were my light in the dark

What will I do in my new life?
Gonna travel ’round the world
I’ll be anywhere I want to be
The best part is I’m livin’
And I’m brave and feeling free
And I’ll proudly say “I’m happy to be me!”

(Chorus)

Bridge:
At last I’m not scared of my tears
I let them fall
Free as the wind
Your words helped me conquer my fears
And I love you all
I love you all

(Chorus)
(Repeat chorus
