This MindFULL Musing is a quick reading of 9 Gentle Reminders I came across in my journal. I hope they'll fill your mind with something you will be the better for hearing. I mention a concept a friend, Rena Tobey, taught me years ago. Check out Rena's website for so many wonderful things to learn about art and life. She lists books to read, plays to see, art to ponder and even Tarot Readings using famous works of art! https://www.renatobey.com/Follow my blog (the inspiration for this podcast) https://themindfullcreative.comDM me on Instagram and let me know what you think! https://www.instagram.com/mindfullconversations/

Imposter Reality

Imposter Reality

2022-11-1807:54

Today's NaPodPoMo's MindFULL Musing is on the Imposter Syndrome. It's something many folks have and yet, few talk about. Well, I talked about it with my Cousin Alyssa, who is a Coach to CEOs and she reassured me that many of us feel this way at different times in our lives. In this episode, I read an excerpt from a paper students at Stanford Business School receive - Therapists Find Many Achievers Feel They're Fakes by Daniel Goleman. Goleman is the Father of Emotional Intelligence. He oughtta know! You can read the whole paper here:https://www.nytimes.com/1984/09/11/science/therapists-find-many-achievers-feel-they-re-fakes.htmlListen here to the MindFULL conversation with Mrs. Abramovitz  that inpires us to just be who we are https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/mindfull-conversations/id1631695053?i=1000577626148Follow my blog (the inspiration for this podcast) https://themindfullcreative.comDM me on Instagram and let me know what you think! https://www.instagram.com/mindfullconversations/

Stranger In The Park

Stranger In The Park

2022-11-1607:59

Today's NaPodPoMo's MindFULL Musing is an off-the-cuff conversation with a man I see almost everyday when I do my daily walk. During the pandemic when we weren't able to see our nearest and dearest, I'd see this man and after awhile, I started to notice him around town. One day I saw him at FedEx and there we laughed and introduced ourselves. Now, if I don't see him in the park, I worry. Who do you see around? Here is the MindFULL conversation, Strangers On A Plane, that inspired me to notice who I see!https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/mindfull-conversations/id1631695053?i=1000581145161Follow my blog (the inspiration for this podcast) https://themindfullcreative.comDM me on Instagram and let me know what you think! https://www.instagram.com/mindfullconversations/

For the month of November, instead of sharing an episode on MindFULL Mondays, I've been challenged to share 5 episodes everyday, Monday-Friday! That's a big deal for a newbie like me, but with your support, I can do it! Each day, I will share a 5ish minute MindFULL Musing. Please let me know what you like, what you don't like and if there is anything you'd like to hear more of. This is a continuation of my grand experiment.

Join us for Part 2 with Rachel Kodanaz, author of Living with Loss One Day at a Time as we move along the spectrum to Finding Peace, One Piece at a Time.

With her can-do compassionate attitude, Rachel shares real world practical' advice, instruction and insight. She helps us reframe cleaning to clearing, and actually leaves us with a MindFULL approach to a task we all face, with curiosity and peace.Takeaways:If you are helping someone down size or right size, and are facing a lot of “stuff” you can start the process by asking 2 questions: Does it tell a story?Does it provide a connection?Don’t wait for someone to be sick or pass before having a conversation about the things they have that matter to them. Get curious and ask for the story behind the item.Rachel has 3 words for you: Sorting. Thinning.

Strangers On A Plane

Strangers On A Plane

2022-09-3026:51

 This episode is about two conversations - both with strangers on a plane, both with the potential to be life changing. The first is simply a musing about one of the conversations. The second is an actual conversation with one of the most inspiring people I have met... Tien. Tien Do is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, who practiced for 23 years prior to a spinal cord injury, 8 years ago. Tien lives in Colorado, is happily married to his wife of 30 years, and has 2 wonderful grown children. He has authored 2 books titled Daily Reflections for Life’s Journey (I & II). While the spinal cord injury derailed his life, it has not deterred him from continuing to enjoy a fruitful existence and achieve progress in his recovery, with the ultimate goal of walking again. His outlook on life and his positivity will inspire you!Takeaways:When a distressing event occurs, you have really only two options. The middle road does not exist. You either deal with the circumstance by having a winning hand in mind or flat out give up. The latter is worthless to consider. Carrying the positive attitude to “fight on” and overcome  allows one to not only survive, but to come out with an increasing library of resiliency to tackle whatever lies ahead.Cherish everything we have during our precious time on Earth. Not a lot should be wasted nor taken for granted.Taking the avenue of staying in the moment, showing unwavering positivity, and being steadfast in defeating the fears and challenges in front of you will produce a happy human being in all aspects of life: mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually You can find Tien’s book Daily Reflections For Life’s Journey (I & II) at  https://www.amazon.com/Daily-Reflections-Lifes-Journey-II/dp/B09BGPFV43Check out Tien’s website kind2bhuman.com Follow my blog (the inspiration for this podcast) https://themindfullcreative.comDM me on Instagram and let me know what you think! https://www.instagram.com/mindfullconversations/
