Because they often contain important messages which inspire us and mirror our own situation! We can also learn new life skills from the conversations. They are also convenient because we can listen to them in so many different places.

The other day I was interviewed via podcast about my book When Life Has Other Plans…Discover the Hidden Gifts.

The following podcast with Zoe Duff from Feilidh Publishing was my first one and I felt a bit nervous. I had no idea just how many people would listen in and what would interest them. There were so many different aspects I could talk about.

But Zoe Duff  had read my book and put together some very intriguing questions. She felt my message about adversity being a gift, needed to reach other people. She thought her listeners could learn from how I had dealt with my challenges and feel inspired. With Covid turning lives upside down, many folks find themselves in frustrating situations and have no life skills to cope. I believe that’s one of the reasons why there has been such a rise in mental health issues. So why not listen to what podcast guests have come up with to make their lives more inspiring?

Podcasters play a major role in eliciting relevant information from their guests. It makes all the difference if a podcast comes across a dry or alive. It needs to speak to people’s hearts so they can resonate. Zoe confessed that she herself had been in similar challenging situations around the age of 40. When she followed her heart, she was able to make major changes in her life. While writing my book I realized, I wasn’t living the life I had planned as an enthusiastic young woman. It had taken me 40 years to  wake up and create a conscious vision for my new life.

In closing I would like to say that our heart tells us when we are ready for a shift. This can occur at any age as I have learned from my ElderCollege students. Sometimes Life uses force to push us onto a new track or it gently pulls us into a new direction. All we need to do is listen to our inner voice to guide us toward greater fulfilment.

I invite you to listen to my podcast and pick up some new inspiring life skills.
