Hilary Powers has an incredible story of redemption to share. She wrote a memoir called Peanuts to Percocet about how her childhood as a big earner in voice over and acting cast a shadow over her life that she got out from under- sparking, shining, and spreading hope. She lived the prayer that this podcast was named for: “this or something better” and through surrender of what she could not change and exerting control over what was hers to discard, she gave up the fantasy and entered her dream. #somethingbetterpodcast #happynewyear #nevertoolate #dontgiveup #trust
My new album "Sweetest Surrender" is out today (podcast theme song) and this week's podcast is a peek into some insight and fun facts about where the songs came from. I hope you enjoy the music!!
I once heard Tony Robbins say something like 'if every married person behaved the way they did the first week they met their spouse, even after years together, no one would split up.' Are you polite to your spouse? Being rational and direct usually involves being kind. Today is on repair. Whether you've been married for awhile or you just hit your first bump in the road with the person you're dating, this is a review of some concepts created by Pat Allen and taught at the WANT Institute on rational communication and repair.
Have you ever told someone something that you had been holding inside? When you got it out, you might've waited to be judged or ridiculed and instead the person proves trustworthy and loving and just nods, and says, "yep...."
That's how I want you to feel after sharing with your friends, with other listeners, or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Shame grows like mold, in the dark, and when you share what you're feeling about not having found love, not feeling the love, or anything else that is holding you back, you liberate yourself.
Thanks so much to all those who have had the guts to let it all out.
I'm glad it is helping. Pass it on!
Evan Marc Katz is a dating coach who specializes in helping smart, strong, successful women understand and connect with men.
He's also been married for ten years and has two kids, and recently wrote a blog post called "Why Married Women Get a Raw Deal". I found this piece insightful, rational, and it seemed like a compassionate conversation starter among spouses who want to negotiate enjoying their life. When he told me he got a lot of negative feedback, the conversation took an interesting turn into our current climate, heated by case upon case of abuse and harassment caused by prominent men. Enjoy our chat from the grey area of what seems to be a black and white standoff. To learn more about Evan go to his website.
