    022 : Marcie Keithley & the Shoebox of Purpose

    022 : Marcie Keithley & the Shoebox of Purpose

    We all have secrets. Truths that are too painful to face.
    Marcie J. Keithley, Author of "The Shoebox Effect: Transforming Pain into Fortitude and Purpose," knows this all too well as she, herself, attempted to put all of her past worries into a proverbial (and literal!) shoebox. Just waiting for the time when she would have the strength to examine and process them.
    The reality, though, is that the only way to move forward in life is to face your past head on.
    Her book chronicles her journey of opening her "shoebox" and learning how to navigate loss, grief, divorce, death, adoption, and all of life's adversities, and transform them into fortitude and purpose.
    An accomplished professional, speaker, writer, and emotional resilience coach, Marcie is amazing guest to have on any podcast. Full of hope, even in the face of challenge.
    She has made it her life's mission to be open and honest with her personal story, in hoping to give others the permission release their own pain that they carry, and move forward with purpose.
    Here's our chat.

    Choices
    By Marcie J. Keithley

    If you were given a second chance
    To step back into time
    And change a wrong and make it right
    I wonder what you’d find.

    For God has chosen a special path
    For all of us you see.
    Would you correct the mistakes you made?
    Or would you let them lbe?

    As I look back on my own life
    The choices that I made
    Were ones that help me grow up strong
    None were made in vain.

    Regardless whether wrong or right
    Each one helped me to see
    That only when we fail to choose
    Our lives can never be.

    You have a choice to start each day
    With happiness and joy.
    Or you could choose to stay in bed
    Depressed, removed and void.

    You have a choice to share your life
    With friends and family.
    Or hide away within yourself
    And miss your destiny.

    You have a choice to take a chance
    Or let it walk on by.
    But you will never  taste success
    Unless you reach and try.

    For failures teach us many things
    And are not meant to be.
    A way to give up on a dream
    And hand away the key.

    So when you choose, choose carefully
    And look within your heart..
    For only when we fail to choose
    Our lives can never start.

    ---------------------------------------
    In 2005, Kevin Berthia was challenged to his core mentally, physically and emotionally.
    His entire life buckled into one moment, and thought there was no other choice but to head to the Golden Gate Bridge...and jump. He was desperately looking for someone to ask him what he was doing, someone to listen, acknowledge, anything. Kevin made it all the way to the bridge, walked to the middle, climbed over the railing and just as he made the decision to release, he heard a voice that saved his life. It was Kevin Briggs, a police officer.
    Briggs listened to Berthia for 90 minutes. Unwinding and unloading his entire life to the first person who gave him a real moment to speak and share, for the first time in a long time.
    Those 90 minutes of shared time and perspective saved Kevin Berthia's life, and changed it for the better. Literally.

    Podcast Episode 019: GMadison Brings Power to Perspective in "Invincible"

    Podcast Episode 019: GMadison Brings Power to Perspective in "Invincible"

    GMadison is a world renowned dancer, choreographer, and instructor.
    His work has been seen on some of the largest stages in the world and he just finished up touring with Mariah Carey this last year.
    Most recently, GMadison and his wife, singer & songwriter Chenelle, put together a beautiful and inspiring music video for Chenelle's song "Invincible," which focuses on how society has grown accustomed to labeling individuals before anyone even understands someone's true perspective.
    We all have different journeys of course, and throughout our lives, certain experiences and events can unfortunately become triggers for us. It could be anything from racial divides, sexual harassment, or a myriad of other experiences and traumas.
    GMadison and Chenelle encourage others to stop and listen, understand before judging, and only then can we truly uncover and comprehend someone's perspective.
    Here's our chat.
