Dear Fellow Uplifters,

Happy Halloween!

Feel a little magic in the air this time of year?

I’m especially excited that we’re living in a neighborhood now where we’re going to see some little goblins and super heroes going door-to-door, all amped up with the spirit of The Great Pumpkin.

When I was a kid, sure, the candy bootie was a big deal – counting it up, sorting it out and trading with my brothers and sister. Ultimately though, it was imagining my costume, making my costume, ticking off the hours until I could wear my costume and then, at nightfall, hitting the street IN my costume that held the scare & thrill for me. Is it any surprise that I eventually went to a theatre arts school?

4 DAYS ‘til our debut launch of BEING DELIBERATELY radio!

I’ll admit, just like my childhood anticipation to dress-up and go trick-or-treating, or later to step into character on stage, or even later pulling on my filmmaker pants to get behind the camera, I’ve got that all-too-familiar combo plate of nervous and calm going on about hosting our latest show. Yessir, both exhilarating and unsettling yet absolutely necessary (& normal) in the choice to dare grandly, I am told.

To dare at all, to risk not knowing and just going involves the oft time messy and uncomfortable summoning of courage, vulnerability, faith and oh, dear — TRUST!

And I say — who signs up easily for that?! Sweet Mary, not me. Here’s what I know and it helps —

I am only as good as the people I surround myself with!

LIVE this Sunday, November 3rd from 7-8PM (PST), please join me on BEING DELIBERATELY radio with guest Kristine Taylor, President of Kristine Taylor Philanthropies and Founder of the Home Saver Program.

Kristine is my kick-off guest and I couldn’t feel more easeful and empowered about that. When you hear her humbling story of personal triumph and now professional giving back, you’ll no longer say that size matters. Ha!

She may be physically petite, but man, she is so very mighty in mind & heart – where it does matter most.
