Fear can feel overwhelming when you are faced with a family emergency or crisis situation. Knowing how to lean in to gratitude in those moments can be the most powerful way to disarm our fears. In this week's podcast, Bethany shares how a scary experience with her family reminded them that gratitude is greater than the fears we face.
Time keeps on ticking and somehow keeps speeding up as it passes into the future. There is no way to slow it down, make it stop, or even rewind. None of us know how much time we have in this life. In this week’s podcast, Bethany shares the importance of cherishing each moment, living in adventure, and embracing new experiences along our journey.
If we were to pause, we would probably find that there are many moments throughout our day that bring us joy. From the beautiful sunrise to the sunset, the smiles and laughter of our children, fresh aroma of coffee in the morning, or the needed help of a co-worker. In this week’s podcast, Bethany reminds us of the importance of reflecting on the simple moments of joy.
When we set out with good intentions to reach our goals, we never prepare ourselves for those moments we just want to quit and throw in the towel! But, if we can press in to the discomfort, the inconvenience, the hard work, the challenge, and lean into our support system, we can accomplish anything we set out to do. In this week’s podcast, Bethany shares the joy of accomplishing her goal in podcasting and the challenge to not quit!
From the moment our children are born we are overcome with great love and joy. And, at that same moment, fear begins to creep in for their safety, well-being, and their future. The older they get, the more our fears can get out of control as they want more freedoms. In this week’s podcast, Bethany shares how we face our fears to let them fly.
Have you ever found yourself in the midst of joy and a hopeful situation and all of the sudden your thoughts shift to the anticipation of doom and gloom... "Something bad must be about ready to happen"!?! Ugh! I hate that! Author and speaker, Brene Brown, talks about this in several of her books as foreboding joy. Others say it's waiting for the other shoe to drop. In this week's podcast Bethany shares how vulnerability is key to living in joy, even in the midst of possibly unpleasant situations.
Being vulnerable can trigger anxiety and fear. Choosing to bare all and trust those closest to you will take your relationships to a deeper more meaningful level. Listen as Bethany shares her hilarious story of being caught ordering Starbucks naked, and how it relates to the risks we take with being vulnerable.
Joy and happiness are so closely related, yet joy runs much deeper than bright smiling faces. Listen as Bethany shares how true joy is more than boxes, ribbons, and bows.
