We begin a new theme today – zeroing in on how your root system impacts all of your life. The more you know who you are, the better your root system functions. As you grow more grounded, your relationships expand and deepen. Reflect on the people who mean the most to you. When you pay attention to what matters, you’re free to notice the needs of others. Isn’t it wonderful that when you care for yourself, you can better care for others? May this podcast spur you on to freshen up your relationships.

Whatever uncertainty you may face – listen as we share a new podcast every single week.
We are Faith and Lois, and we tackle just about anything from the perspective of where you come from to where you are going. Using our experiences, a bit of humor and our unique way of understanding life, we are here as you deal with challenges or rejoice over your latest accomplishments.
You are not alone!
What happens to your body when you’re facing difficulties? In our podcast we consider some steps to take care of yourself beginning with blocking off time to journal or reflect. We also discuss how to deal with what you’re facing head on. How do you pay attention to your level of stress? Maybe you could do something fun for yourself that takes your body and mind to a different space. And remember that you are not alone, find someone who will support you wherever you are. Join us!
Our theme for the next four weeks is exploring how you navigate challenges in your life. Today we begin with your relationships – and what to do when you face difficulties with those closest to you. We wonder how you can practice responding instead of reacting. What’s the mutual benefit for both of you? How about dealing with issues when they come up as you stay vulnerable? And at the end of the day, celebrate the good times you’ve shared, are sharing and will share. Great ways to strengthen your relationships!
When it comes to expressing compassion in the workplace, how do you do it? Today we reflect on how self-compassion increases job performance, engagement and wellbeing in the workplace. We check in how you might emotionally connect with your colleagues. How well do you pay attention to signals about burnout? What about feedback, what’s your goal when you share constructive or positive recommendations? And what would it look like to nurture your connections? Great things to consider!
Compassion and spirituality intersect in the way you express yourself and care for others. In today’s 200th (!!) podcast we wonder what happens when you open your heart. One of the first things you might notice is how much you have in common with others. From there you are more free to practice being kind to end the suffering of someone else. Through it all, staying grounded with meditation and contemplation brings an awareness of where you might show kindness, bring love and be of service.
What happens when you show compassion to your body? In today’s podcast we talk about the similarities between self-compassion and compassion. When you are aware of what your body is revealing to you – you have the opportunity to heal and grow. We explore the benefit of mindfulness, understanding you are not alone, being kind to yourself, planning ahead and using rest. What joy to discover how observation is your friend!
Compassion – it’s our new theme for the next four weeks! We’re going to explore its impact on your relationships, your body, your spirituality and your craft. As we think of compassion and your relationships, how might you consider what someone else is going through? Maybe it’s time for you to release what you want to change in the other. When you’re compassionate, you give extra support by listening, being present and sticking around. And you are kind with your words. This all means you are ready to walk together, let’s dive in!
