We’re back from a wonder-filled weekend in Sedona at the Raw Spirit Festival. I’ve started a campaign to speak at the next one in Santa Barbara in June. Many have already emailed the general manager, Theresa Lucek, and said they’d like to see me onstage which was very kind of them to take the time to do so.
Here’s something that I read in a book by an author I’m going to be interviewing next week.
“Anxiety is an attempt to fight future danger or control the uncontrollable, (borrowing pain from the future.) Depression (hanging on to pain from the past) is an attempt to flee danger by retreating into our own private cave through isolation, or numbing our emotions through drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, gambling, sex, shopping, you name it.” Dr. Nancy Irwin
I’ll name overeating.
I’m really enjoying this book. I’ve been highlighting numerous sentences starting with the introduction. Anything I didn’t know already? Not really yet, like any “self-help” style book, very often there’s an “aHA!” moment because of the way something is said or the because of the time it’s said.
This book contains 40 stories of life-changing events from people over 40. I actually only heard of/actually know a few people in this book along with “Jane Doe”, “John Doe” and “Anonymous” (yes, they are in the book and for good reason as you’ll find out reading these very honest, revealing, stories). If you enjoy hearing personal stories of change and triumph as I do, this is the book for you.
Obviously, this will be another interesting interview on Celebrating Your Potential. Remember to check it out next week.

Until next week ~
