My latest episode is titled: The Chains of Fear. Journey with me through a one-day snapshot of the life of Clara. She is smart, responsible, and meticulous. But, is there more to her story? Are her actions rooted in prudence, or something more harmful?
I think you may find a little of yourself in Clara. I know I did.
What is settling really, and why do we do it? Is it because we are lazy, or don’t feel good about ourselves? Is it because we have a lapse in judgment?
I think it is fair to say we have all made a choice in our lives at some point that we later know was not the best.
How can we make the best choices for ourselves with the given information we have?
In this episode, we get into honest reflection about settling, why we do it, and it’s effects
We at times can find ourselves in a negative cycle, negative thought process, or just generally do not feel a sense of hope.
The beliefs that lead us to a sense of hopelessness are a part of the things we carry, metaphorically. Like a well-worn backpack filled with items that are personal to us, we often travel through life with beliefs, ideas, and convictions which weigh us down. Our belief system is meant to guide our actions and ideas– but at times, our beliefs can grab us and keep us unmoving, stuck, paralyzed, even by a narrative that may not even be based on truth.
So while we may not be able to accelerate our time of transition, in what ways can we change our perspective to give us a sense of stability or to have a grounding effect? We’ll discuss this in my latest episode, “The Things We Carry“.
This episode includes a visualization exercise that may help you see yourself setting aside anything that does not help you move forward on your journey in life.

I recently did a Twitter poll to find out what people wanted to hear next on the podcast. The results were pretty clear! Many said they wanted to hear about breaking bad cycles in their lives. Self love was the second runner-up, and I have a series on that which you can listen to here.
Do you ever feel like you have the best intentions, but still seem to remain stuck in bad cycles? Let’s explore some of the ways we get stuck in our poor choices and habits, and how we can make a change for the better.
