Episode 48: Brave Enough To Look Like My Mom (& other Scary Stuff) When I Get Old
I love my mom - but, you know, your mom always seems "older" to you. You always think of her as WAY ahead of you in age and stage of life.
When you realize that you're starting to look like her...let's just say it gives you "pause".
But that's not the only thing we FEAR as we age.
Sometimes life is filled with surprises and hard things that make us simply want to put our hearts to sleep instead of having to face them or live through them.
But the question is this...how do you want to live the last phase of your Path in this life? Scared or Brave?
In this episode we're talking about the Wonder Woman way of the Inner Hero - what it takes to LIVE this life with courage. And there's really ONE THING you need the most.
Would love it if you'd join me.
Episode 47: Maya Angelou: A Brave Woman Who Lived A Brave Life
How can we be FEARLESS AFTER 50? Maya Angelou was a model for us. From a life that could have easily defined her "Not Enough", she rose above and stood "Brave Enough" to be herself, to be her best and to walk her Path with courage as a woman thankful for the blessings.
This woman has a "Phenomenal" Story. She was brutally honest with her world about who she was even though the public spotlight was on her much of her life. Far from perfect by her own admission, she lived to learn and refused to hide.
Find out in this podcast what 4 Gifts Maya drew from inside of her deepest heart. Gifts that were her Secret Inner Heroes. Her many quotes and insightful wisdom reveal a woman who learned that backing down from who she really was is NOT an option.
You can discover the same 4 Amazing Secret Inner Heroes that live in you...because they ARE the best sides of you.

Is this YOU? "I'm not brave! I act like I'm brave. I try to talk brave. But I know I'm not..."
You and nearly every other woman on this planet. ESPECIALLY if you're moving on past your 40's and 50's and up the age line. Did you know that MOST women shrink back from life the older they get?
In today's episode you are going to hear about how I took a look at the older women in my life on my 19th birthday and almost decided to just give up. I was so scared that I was going to have to turn out like them...
But a kind of miraculous thing happened that day - a long time ago - which put me onto my own Path from Not Enough to Brave Enough. And eventually set the stage to go on some amazing adventures and meet an incredible man.
And the same insight I received that day is exactly the same insight that is going to inspire and stir up YOUR Brave Enough no matter how old you are now and no matter what it is that you think you're not Brave Enough to do.
