52: Fan Favorite: Thought Deliveries

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend!

This episode is the first of four recap episodes for this calendar year. I’m sharing episodes that have resonated with you (my amazing listener) in 2019. I share my thoughts about the episodes now that time has passed, and I also share listener comments about the episode. My first recap is on episode #3, and it is where my voice began to emerge.

The bones of my teachings entered into my life and possibly yours in this episode: the bones that are now the backbone of everything I teach. I now discuss the impact of your thoughts and reference thought deliveries we allow in our lives, in almost every episode. I love these deliveries – especially once we notice them, sort them and make them work for us.

51: A Podcaster I am Thankful For: Carolyn Kiel, An Episode of Beyond Six Seconds

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend!
 
As it is Thanksgiving week here in the United States, and since this is a podcast episode, I thought it would be appropriate to share a podcaster I am thankful for.
 
Please note that, of course, I am incredibly thankful for my patient and supportive husband, my incredibly creative and kind-hearted daughter, my friends and extended family, my health, and all that comes with the privilege of being alive on this earth at this moment. 
 
Oh, and pumpkin pie – thankful for pumpkin pie! I WILL treat myself with some pumpkin pie. 
 
While this episode is a bit longer than my usual episode, it is an incredibly interesting listen. Carolyn was kind enough to share one of her episodes with me that I handpicked for you. Nikhil Pampati is a high school senior who has created a nonprofit that is incredibly needed and inspiring. I invite you to listen to this episode, maybe even take a listen in the car with your child(ren) and have some exciting discussions about it.
