    Our theme for the next four weeks is exploring how you navigate challenges in your life. Today we begin with your relationships - and what to do when you face difficulties with those closest to you. We wonder how you can practice responding instead of reacting. What's the mutual benefit for both of you? How about dealing with issues when they come up as you stay vulnerable? And at the end of the day, celebrate the good times you've shared, are sharing and will share. Great ways to strengthen your relationships!

    200. Where Is Compassion Revealed In Your Spirituality?

    Compassion and spirituality intersect in the way you express yourself and care for others. In today's 200th (!!) podcast we wonder what happens when you open your heart. One of the first things you might notice is how much you have in common with others. From there you are more free to practice being kind to end the suffering of someone else. Through it all, staying grounded with meditation and contemplation brings an awareness of where you might show kindness, bring love and be of service.

There's Always More to Life

Thought-provoking and hopeful. Hearing women share about their own struggles with negative identity traits and confidence issues that kept them back until they experinced a realization that allowed them to move forward is powerful. How much time goes by while we hold onto false beliefs about our abilities-- if only we could be brave and go after our dreams anyway. That's what these women are telling us-- seize the day! There's More to Life to be experienced!
