I just got off a radio interview out of Seattle on KKNW, Loss and Found with Cathy Cooper. If any of you are dealing with loss of any kind, I’d recommend tuning in. Cathy has a very kind gentle nature always with the audience’s best needs in mind. She has a Facebook page and link to her show. She’s a terrific interviewer and is receptive to new ideas.
Her final question to me was insightful. We were originally going a different direction and at the last she circled back to this: “If you can leave the audience with anything what would it be?” Essentially the gist was this:
“Everyday is a new beginning. Everyday is an op to choose the direction you desire most, whether it’s learning to cook Chinese or reaching out to old friends. Make the effort. See the magic around you by tuning into the beauty. Stay positive; be mindful. Take responsibility for all your choices. No shame. No blame. Be grateful for the good around you. Love your body. Laugh. Step out of the past and into the present. Stay in the flow of your personal river versus systematically and automatically swimming against the current by doing the same ol’ rote everyday, (repeat repeat repeat, reload) or making poor choices and doing things that are incongruent with your core values. Love yourself. Be willing to accept change. Take action. Stand in your light. Be the light. When you do, we globally unite in spirit and create our cosmic garden. This is how you/we/I create Eden.”
Cosmic sunshine to you. ☀️
