Ep 53 Keeping An Open Heart
So many of us push away our discomforts and opt to stay only in our comfort zones. What we are ultimately doing is pushing away those things that we need to work through from past hurts, traumas or faulty beliefs. When we lean into the discomfort and allow ourselves to heal our "stuff", we free ourselves and allow are hearts to be more open. And when our hearts are more open, so are our minds and vice versa.  Don't forget to subscribe and review if your listening platform allows it. Thank you.  If you have questions or comments about this episode or other episodes, I can be reached at or

Ep 51 Loving Someone Too Hard Can Become Tainted / Toxic Love
Just because you love someone doesn't mean that they are going to be able to receive it. You can't save someone with your love. Only they can save themselves. When we squeeze too hard, we can squash the love we are trying to give away and then it just becomes toxic for both parties involved.

Ep 45 Does Time Really Heal Wounds?
We have all had painful moments that stay with us. Time can often heal these wounds and painful moments if we let it. In this episode, I discuss a break-up I went through  awhile back and how with time, the pain has lessened. I also read a poem from my book, Roots and Tendrils (available on Amazon) called Heart Cleanse. Heart Cleanse is a piece that talks about pain and releasing it to allow it to form a scar. How are you working through your pain? How are you also seeking out the joyous moments to help you heal?  k9bb4k4r

Ep 44 What NOT to Say to Someone Who is Grieving
We have all been there. We have been on both sides. We have been the one who is in pain and someone says something that just hurts your heart in their kindest attempt to help the situation. We have also been the one that is feeling so much need to try to help the situation that we end up saying something the discounts the pain that someone else is in. Let's always work hard to just stay in presence with someone who is in pain. Often, our presence is all that is needed. Reach out to me at with feedback

Ep 40 Sitting in Discomfort
What is it in us that makes us lash out at others when we can't sit in our own discomfort? Why do we think it is an act of strength or power to tear someone else down when we don't even take the time to  understand a situation?  We have to dig deep within ourselves to understand why we, as humans, stop seeing other people as human beings with feelings. Why do we stop acting with empathy and compassion when we are in a state of fear?
