It’s hot as blazes but I’m pretty comfy in Mark’s old T-shirt sitting under a shady tree on the podcast rock down at my local park.

Podcast Recap

Inspired by the morning meditation Mark and I have been doing, I let go of all the conditions I place on loving myself. An update from Brave Petra about her Instagram post with comment support from Dawny. Dawny shares her mixed feelings about her new job. Lots of BCs named Jo! Our newest BC, Jo from the UK, asks if Any other UK BCs are still listening. Sue from the UK answers along with many friends old and new including BC Jo, formerly from the UK and now from Thailand. Josephine from last show officially becomes a new BC by posting on the bravery report. Welcome new BC, Jane from Suffolk. Sophie from Scotland also pops in on FB and a quick hello from Stéfanie from Quebec. Thanks for supporting the show via Amazon, Virtual Coffee, reviews, FB likes and gifts. I finally work up the courage to put some ink in the beautiful handmade journal Mary S. made me. Mark shares his experience with trying Meditation.

Podcast Recap

Bravely facing up to the truth. Our truth, the truth of how we’re seen in the world, the truth that our truth can change and that’s ok. New iTunes reviews. How to support the show and the truth about where that money goes. The Unknown Foolish Funner gives us a chuckle. Suzanne is on the bravery report TWICE! One of my last voice acting class dialogs with my scene partners Phyllis and Roger. Comments about our epic episode 100 from Cheryl, Patt and Sue from the UK. Thoughtful reactions from Suzanne and Stéfanie from Qubec to the truth of size-ism as ranted by me last show and in a blog post called Fitting In – Hating the Simpsons and Loving the Kindness of Strangers. How to be in the next edition of Fionna’s Brave Companions Song.

Laurie pulls back her hat brim as she takes a smiling selfie in the mirror

Took this just because I felt Sooo happy in my body today. Still don’t know what I weigh, just felt really good physically.

Here I am reviewing my sheet music before practicing. I record my lesson every week on the same recorder I use for the podcast and use the recording to practice.

Podcast Recap

Procrastination can delay more than your chores. It can put your entire life on hold and kill your dreams. Corinna, from the live YMCA support group, is on the bravery report for recording her thoughts after our first meeting. The YMCA group will continue on and we have an actual bravery report now! We also have a show audio archive again. Featured comments by Rachel about perfectionism, Amy from Australia about my weight photos, Suz about supporting Amy from WI and me, Cheryl about knowing when to give up an activity without guilt, and Sue from the U.K. about the value of persistence. I share my latest singing adventure as well as my voice acting report card results.
