The mental side of losing your course can cause us to beat ourselves up, get sidetracked and eventually make it difficult for us to bounce back. Life can be frustrating because we think we're doing something right and then something happens and we figure out we are not. So what do you do? How do you increase your resilience?

Rough Passage: Inspiration after Challenges - What Happened? with Lorie
Rough Passage: Inspiration after Challenges - What Happened? with Lorie
It has been one heck of a week since the last episode- hence the title Rough Passage. I ended up having an emergency surgery after a routine scan. I know! Not what I was expecting. When we face a life challenge, it causes us to act, reflect and reevaluate. It is the small steps that move us back to life as we know it and to experience the growth we can achieve. We all have the tools we need to get us through life. Sometimes we don't remember where we left our tools. Sometimes we forget the tools that we have. This past week has been discouraging to say the least, but I also know the value that has come out of it. I know that my story will help someone else understand that no one is immune to life's struggles…me included.

Hope Floats with Caroline Rose
Hope Floats with Caroline Rose
The definition of hope is the expectation, feeling, and belief that the future will be full of desired, meaningful events and outcomes. Without hope, it is difficult to imagine how or why humans would persevere. I know you will be truly moved today with my guest Caroline Rose. She has made it her mission to share her story of hope and to inspire us to continue to fight and reclaim our lives. Caroline is a three-time stage 4 cancer thriver, speaker and total dog lover. Her soul-searching and the struggles she was forced to face at the lowest point in her life revealed to her that we all deserve a second chance.  It also was the moment that she realized that despair, and pain is where we find the treasures of life. She has been blessed by finding her angel, Riley. He was her guide through her most difficult times. Together, the strength of their bond taught them that there really are some things in life that are worth the fight. They found that hope is what floats us through the most demanding times. In this episode with Caroline, you will learn The power of hope in our lives How she found her inspiration through her cancer fight What it means to trust life again Caroline’s story is more than a cancer survivor story. It’s the story of love, loss, and the ultimate realization that the hope of true joy always outweighs the struggle. Your experiences in life teach you so many lessons. Some of us have bigger and harder lessons, but the message is the same. Hope will give us the strength to overcome difficulties and hardships. Sometimes, hope is the only thing that keeps us going, keeps our head above water. Our resilience and determination to continue the fight will bring us some of the greatest moments in our lives. Through laughter and tears we can thrive.  It is what we hold on to that gives us the strength to go on. Riley was there to show Caroline how. By having that companionship and connection with him, she experienced first hand the healing power of animals.

The Healthy Galley with Lynne Bowman
The Healthy Galley with Lynne Bowman
What is the secret recipe for reversing chronic disease, looking and feeling better and most important creating sustainable health habits? Eating healthy is exceptionally delicious with my guest and “healthy gal”, Lynne Bowman. She is wise and witty and has created a whole food, plant based and practical way of eating. This holistic approach is what has helped Lynne to overcome her own health issues. Lynne was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes over 30 years ago. Through her understanding of the importance of food and modifying her lifestyle, she became living proof that you can cook, eat, sleep and walk your way out of type 2 diabetes, or at least the ill effects of it. In addition, the benefits extend to aging well and looking fantastic! In her new book, “Brownies for Breakfast,” she takes us through her Healthy Galley and shares exactly how you can do it too. It is a wonderful feast for the eyes as well. Would you ever think of eating brownies for breakfast? Probably not, but you may rethink that after hearing this episode. In my conversation with Lynne, we are going to be talking about: Reversing chronic disease through lifestyle changes Healthy habits that you can really keep Her secret to aging well Lynne’s colorful and charismatic personality pairs well with the food she eats. Perhaps that is another benefit to following her lead. She is full of energy and continues to be active in truly LIVING her life. Her recipes are Low-carb, gluten-free, super nutritious recipes everybody in the family will like, and anybody can make. Just when you thought your favorites were out, Lynne redesigned them without all the bad stuff. “When you allow yourself, mentally and physically, to eat high-quality food it changes your relationship with food. If you sit down to a table full of green and yellow and pink and red and orange and beautiful foods with beautiful fragrance and textures and you say to yourself “I’m gonna eat whatever I want and I get to eat whatever I want”. Suddenly now, not only is the food healthy, but your relationship without food becomes healthy. That’s huge!” Her book “Brownies for Breakfast” is beautifully photographed and filled with easy to follow recipes to drool over. You can find out more about Lynne on her website at LynneBowman.com  You can find her book Brownies for Breakfast: A Cookbook for Diabetics and the People Who Love Them on Amazon.  Social Media: Instagram @lynneparmiterbowman and Facebook @lynneparmiterbowman  How do you sail through life?

Using physical, mental and emotional aspects of wellness & life, he teaches how to embrace yourself with love and clarity. Now is the time to live a life of peace and happiness! In my conversation with Chris we will be covering: Courage and Fear- Reprogramming how we think Relationships and what they are here to teach you What I learned today in my conversation with Chris is: In any relationship, it takes you being the best you to make it successful, your relationship with yourself and bringing your best self forward is the most important. Until we get ourselves on the right path, we will struggle. Fear can be a big stumbling block for us on our journey and can create a barrier to moving through situations in our lives. Flipping that fear into courage will empower us to make those moves to understand ourselves better. Once you can conquer that, you can thrive in all aspects of your life.

The Whole Nine Yards with Penelope Joye

She paid the price. The result was a melanoma diagnosis, not once, but twice. The seriousness of this compelled her to examine her life and find a solution to preventing future concerns with premature aging, sun damage and skin cancer. Penelope has had her scare with skin cancer, but it is what she did because of it that she shares with us today. Growing up in Australia then moving on to her well travelled life, she gained the experiences that would give her an idea...one  that would become a passion for her. She found a creative solution for protection against the sun’s harmful rays. Her solution is easy to use, practical and best of all so very beautiful. It is the whole nine yards!

It goes to show how all of our life experiences lead us to where we need to be. We also are reminded that we need to take care of ourselves and be proactive with protecting ourselves from sun damage. I always like to take time to point out the seriousness of skin cancer, melanoma even more so.

Before That Ship Has Sailed with Lynn Sherwood
Before That Ship Has Sailed with Lynn Sherwood
This is a heartfelt and touching conversation about the reality of life. We will all go through grief and loss at some point. Life is precious. Let’s make the most of the time we have together. Even if it means having the hard conversations. The importance of end-of-life communication hit home when Lynn Sherwood's 25 year-old daughter, Lauren, was diagnosed with Small Cell Lung Cancer.  In the five months they shared between diagnosis and death, this mom and daughter navigated the waters of legal and health care decisions, interpersonal relationships, and communicating personal preferences which would bring comfort, joy and peace… This candid and emotional conversation with Lynn will cover: Why communication about death and dying is important to her The importance of talking about death before it happens How planning ahead can create a “happier ending” for you and your family She encourages us to think about dying as a natural part of life - designing our dying to achieve a potentially “happier ending!” The reality is that anyone could perrish without this wake-up call and at any time. Trying to make decisions while grieving the loss of a loved one is a difficult subject, yet it is one that everyone will deal with eventually. This is a difficult subject and I hope you can look at it in a different light now. Lynn is a former nurse, "companionship-centered" caregiver, serial entrepreneur, author of “Lung Cancer 101” and “My Croak File,” and TEDx Speaker.

Changing Your Latitude with Steven Crane
Changing Your Latitude with Steven Crane
Steven Crane spent the year 2020 "marinating his brain" as he says, in the spirit of gratitude and appreciation... and lots of writing after his teenage son's challenge to examine why his response to so many situations was negative. While the world was on lock-down and going through a pandemic, he discovered something life-changing. He found there were hidden blessings all over the place in things he previously viewed as negatives. He learned it's possible to rewire that negativity, and live more mindfully in a spirit of true appreciation. From questioning faith after losing loved ones to cancer, or his own significant health challenges to the more everyday challenges like careers, parenting, relationships, Steven realized it was time to take a hard look at his life. You can learn more about Steven on Instagram and Facebook. His book “I Can Appreciate That!” is available on Amazon. The month of September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month.

Today on Finding Calm Seas in Turbulent Times, George, a father, cancer caregiver and my husband will be sharing his experience being a caregiver. Having a family member get a diagnosis of cancer or other health challenges is tough. Becoming a caregiver to that person at that moment is also a major life change.
