Today’s podcast is my first full solocast as I have the opportunity to share more of my own story and my passion behind The LifeBeats Project. Friends you are gonna hear some nerves in there! Find out some fun random things about me, including hearing my theme song. I share something that was said said to me in high school that has affected my self-esteem and has had me questioning whether I was great at anything for years and how I finally came to see that I did have a superpower and it was ok to embrace that I was great at something. I tell of Mike’s diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis and what saved me that day we got the news. I share times of anger in my life and how I felt peace. I also reveal the struggle as I transitioned from stay at home mom to sole provider and what I have learned about myself along the way. I share where the inspiration for The LifeBeats Project began and why the phases of the moon have served as a visual reminder of what I want you to glean from this movement and what is in store for it next. Thank you to those who asked questions and I was happy to answer them. I hope you can feel my passion for letting you know how amazing you are through my words.

I just finished listening to this podcast and I think you are so amazing. You have had your struggles yet you live your life with such grace, strength and love. Thank you for putting yourself out there. I too live in California, love photography, crafts and music. Keep up the great work.
Martha! I am so happy that we have so much in common. Thank you so much for listening and for your sweet and generous comments. You have no idea how much impact one comment like this can make. I am so happy that you commented. Have a wonderful holiday!
I’ve just discovered your podcasts through Instagram. It’s unusual for me to click on links and I really haven’t looked into podcasts. But all I can say, is there was a power greater than me guiding me to follow up on your podcast. The timing is perfect. I have recently re-entered the work force after 18 years of self employment (in a profession that was sucking my soul dry). It has meant less time to pursue my creative side that was a HUGE part of my life. We have recently moved and I am only just now unpacking my art room (4 months later). I was seriously thinking of chucking it all – I felt so depressed to unpack all my unfinished projects – unfinished visions. Between your podcast and the one you did with Courtney Brown of Cents of Style, I have a new hope and resolve to hang in there and ride the depression wave through to the other side. You have inspired me to hang on, if you can do it given your life circumstances, by golly I can too:) Thank you for digging deep and showing us that tender, vulnerable part of you. Very brave, indeed.
Jennifer thank you so much for reaching out to me! I am so happy that a divine intervention provided you with the words that would fill your soul!! Those life altering experiences really stretch us and ask us to stretch oftentimes more than we thought possible. Sometimes it just seems easier to give up, but I know you can do it. You will find a new pace, a new way to experience joy, I just know it!!
Briana, thank you. THANK YOU for what you have done. I feel like I have gained a new close friend as I have listened to you here. I have also needed to go back to work after being a stay at home with my husband going through health problems also. I identified so much with what you have gone through. Just thank you for sharing your beautiful soul. You radiate light. Thank you for sharing it!
Thank you so much Alicen! New close friends are definitely welcome in my life:) I am sorry to hear about your husband and the need for you to return to work. I am glad that something I said could give you a little more strength. We can do it my new friend! I’d love to keep in touch. Reach out to me at [email protected]. Lets keep each other going!!
