Episode 15: The One About Our Bodies

Episode Talking Points: The Ideal Life Exercise–those precious fifteen minutes and four questions that will help you make progress; Lily takes you on a ride in a time machine; If you can’t say something nice…; Curiosity as the antithesis to fear.

LiElla will be hosting an online Death Café on April 30, 2022. This is a safe space for those who are curious about End-of-Life issues or have down-to-brass-tacks questions. You can ask LiElla anything death related, and she will, without judgment, give you an answer if there is one to be had! Lily will be attending, too. We’ll get you the Zoom meeting link as soon as it becomes available.

A great big merci to the marvelous Matt Kugler for his stylings on the ukelele version of Big Yellow Taxi, and for making us sound so nice. That was fun. Let’s do it again sometime! 

That little one-minute version of Big Yellow Taxi can be found here, as a special bonus for podcast listeners: https://youtu.be/dwEH4cGiAC0 Listen to it when you are feeling down about your bodies. Remember to dance.

Our private Facebook group, You Are Not Done Sparkling Yet (https://www.facebook.com/groups/309886354511956) is available to give you a place to get some encouragement and support as you navigate the pursuit of your Ideal Life.

I am passionate about contentment. This is a challenge, because I am equally passionate about progress. I get up at 4:00AM to chip away at a solution to this monolithic problem: how to make progress on my contentment. Born and raised in the USA, I married a French philosophy teacher in 1999. We have lived in France since 2007. We stayed young and carefree until life threw us two curveballs in the form of little humans one after another in 2015 and 2017 respectively. Now I am a slightly older, slightly more exhausted version of myself, but with mystery stains on my walls and a never-ending pile of laundry.
