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.

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?

Back on the Mountain with my Trusty Roland05 – What will I let go of today?

Podcast Recap

Back on the mountain I ponder the amount of power I give to negative thinking and brainstorm ways to let that go. I read a recent blog post asking if you, the BCs, would like COD to continue on as a weekly show, and if you would participate. Some comments about that from Sue from the U.K., BC Petra, Dawny, New BC Rabbit (Love that name!), BC Sharlene, BC Jackie and Stéfanie from Quebec. My pursuit of voice acting triggers some familiar feelings and I give a shout out to the special people in Richard Horvitz’ voice acting B class.

Back down to the park with my trusty Roland 05 recorder and a bottle of water where I’m actually chatting with you as I walk.

Podcast Recap

Walking around the park again! I ask BCs to stop by and post hellos. I let go the idea that I need to be different than myself. Thanks to Dawny for being such a supportive BC. Lessons from voice acting and my latest commercial clip. Appreciating Amy from Wisconsin and Sue from UK and their quilting talents. Why it’s good not to eat our feelings – thoughts after watching TLC’s My 600 lb. Life.
