If you’ve struggled with panic, anxiety, overwhelming anger, or any kind of addiction, ‘getting real’ about life…and coming to a place of acceptance…is the key. Suzanne talks about it here.
I begin today’s show with a practical little blog I wrote recently called The Art of the Work Break. Because really, a lot of us get this wrong. Yet getting break time right can truly be the difference between a productive day, and one that just dragged on and on, seemingly without end.
And as for getting real about life…
I know, I know. The last thing you need when you’re struggling is some cheery little podcast about bucking up, having a stiff upper lip and slogging onward. This is not that. I share my thoughts about what I learned when the bottom dropped out and life was so hard, I truly thought I couldn’t cope.
And yet I did. And what I learned changed me forever.
The big takeaway: Our resistance to the flow of life is our biggest stumbling block. So I share some thoughts that will make that process smoother, as we work towards recovery, healing, and being the best iterations of ourselves that we can be.
May this find you well, or at least working your way back to well. And may you find the solace that awaits you when you truly embrace all that is.
Happy Thanksgiving US listeners! And to all, I send my thanks to YOU!
