Podcast Recap

From Tacoma, WA, I record a special letting go of my past identity across from my old home on Puget Sound. Comments about Day 141 from BCs Josephine, Petra and Dawny. More ponderings along the waterfront as I process how it felt saying a final good-bye to Mom and how BC Dave gave me comfort in an unexpected way. We celebrate a huge milestone with BC Jo from the UK and hear some samples of her many comments. Stéfanie from Quebec returns with a brand new Secret Topic of the Day.

The early morning view of Browns Point where I grew up

Rows of headstones with the grave digging backhoe behind

Emotional. We watch the gravediggers open my Dad’s grave in the veteran’s cemetery, so they can place my mom’s ashes in with him.

Flowers on the grave for Mom along with a small American flag to honor my dad's military service

After my parent’s grave a recovered with sod, a temporary marker was placed.

Having fun with the angles of my selfie. Here’s a view from as high as I can reach of me and my gear on the next to top Zen place bench.

Podcast Recap

How can we let go of our false selves and learn to express who we are? Welcome to new BC Rachel who recommends a new podcast for us to check out. Now available, a certificate of completion for Brave Companions who have listened or binge-listened, all the way through the episodes so far! I announce my upcoming live support group – details to come. Touching letters from two new brave companions on the bravery report, María from a Spanish speaking country and Amy from Ohio. Courtney, another new brave companion is on the bravery report a record three times in one day! Once for her bravery hotline call, once for her comment on day 4 and once for posting her story on Who are the Brave Companions? Dawny also calls the bravery hotline with an update about her vacation, how she’s doing with intuitive eating and what SHE’s bravely giving up today! Featured comments by Stéfanie from Quebec and Amy from Wisconsin. I also reveal my secret binge behavior these days. Courtney ends the show by making me LOL!

Laurie grinning

See, it IS all about the angles. I include this take because it’s as thin as my legs have looked without me photoshopping them!
