    Defining a Silver Lining

    I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase: somebody out there has it worse than you right now. In fact, you may have even told yourself that at times throughout the pandemic. I know I certainly have.

Sandy Rz ,

Perfect pick me up!

Dr. Fidelio’s podcast is the perfect 5-10 minute listen for a spurt of motivation in my day! His voice is so calming and his messages are always spot on! I recommend to anyone looking for a quick pick me up to start your day, to get through your “afternoon slump”, or for that positive message at the end of the hectic day. 5 stars all the way!
