Ep. 15: 7 Lessons I Learned From My Mom Before She Died

The This Podcast is dedicated to my beloved mother, Pamela Becker, who passed away on December 17th 2013. I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks and that’s because I was on the East Coast caring for my mother. I was actually there for the better part of the last 2 months but the last 2 weeks got the best of me and of course she passed in that timeframe as well. I had hoped to have a back up podcast for you in that event but you know how life goes.

Thank you for your continued support and for allowing me to continue sharing my message!

This week I want to also thank a few new “friends” on Facebook!

Amy Highstein-Berman, Tara Reddy, Nyela Oluchi Hope, Boris Doris, Keisha Davis, Stewart Joseph, Raphael Fernandez Alvarez

If you’d like to get an appreciation and a shout out join us on Facebook and let me hear from you. I’ll be happy to mention your business or site here on the show.

Where Am I?

Last week I had the great honor of being a guest on the Zen Parenting Radio Show. We did our best to answer the question, “Are we shortchanging our men?” as well as get silly. We recorded the episode pretty late and all of us were a bit giddy! With all the fun we had I think we had some good content too! I encourage you to check out my episode and future episodes of the Zen Parenting Radio Show!

Coming Up!

In episode 14 I had the great honor of chatting it up with Andrea Owen! Well this coming week I’m going to be sitting down with her again! Only this time I’m going to be on her awesome podcast! Stay tuned for details of when that’s going to be released! In the meantime, I encourage you to check out her newly released book, “52 Ways to Live A Kick Ass Life!” You can download it right from Amazon!

7 Lessons I Learned From My Mom Before She Died (Listen to the podcast for much more discussion!)

1. You’re never alone: alone is a feeling not a reality.

2. If you act from intention you’ll have nothing to regret: Be intentional about your actions – always carry forgiveness with you.

3. Fulfillment lives in Creativity: We’re all creative – Find arts, music, performing, baking, etc.

4. Life without Laughter is Boring: Need to laugh to enjoy even the small things in life.

5. Integrity is how we honor ourselves and our higher power: Integrity, honesty, “doing the right thing” even when it’s not convenient.

6. Fulfillment will be found in serving others: giving to others expands our ability to receive all the gifts that are coming our way.

7. Today is the only day that matters: Waking up is the best way to start the day!

Weekly Challenge:

When you’re by yourself notice how connected you really are – When someone asks you to do something, pause and really make sure you can and want to do it, then do it without any regrets – Paint, draw, play some music, bake, or make something with your hands – Laugh – Honor yourself in every moment (or forgive when you don’t) – Do something for someone else this week – Focus on your breath even if just for a few minutes and notice what you can be grateful for today.

Happy New Year!!! I’m hoping to bring you so much more in 2014 and can’t wait to share it all with you! Thank you once again for giving me this space and I’m wishing you and your loved ones a Happy and Healthy New Year!
