    Episode 28: The Most Forgotten Step In Letting Go

    in Self Help

    Letting go is so much easier said than done. Our tendency is to hold on with all our might…if we just held on a little tighter, we would get what we wanted. If only we could hold on a little stronger, then we would be happy. Then one day we realize, it’s not in the holding on, it’s in the letting go. When we learn to let go, we are free. By how do we do that? I was never taught how to let go in school. Were you?

    We learn through the School of Life. Today on Love, Trust & Pixie Dust, MIT molecular biologist turned philosophical author Greg Marcus, Ph.D. and I have an important lesson to share with you. Come join us as we share a radical method for letting go.

    Episode 27: Grammy Award Winner Spreads LOVE With 900 Voices

    in Music

    When you look in the mirror do you see someone with a stirring in your heart, with a dream I’m going to refer to as “Gandhi-sized,” which means it doesn’t matter if it’s big or small, what matters is it’s a dream that you believe will make a positive difference in the world. A dream that actually makes you want to be the change you want to see in the world. But what does that even look like? It looks like our guest, Laura Sullivan, Grammy winning composer and recording artist. Join us as Laura shares with us how she’s spreading love all over the world, being the change she wants to see in the world. It’s not just for Grammy winning artists today on Love, Trust & Pixie Dust—have a little faith, trust yourself—you too can be that change.

    Episode 33: Oh! The Places You'll Go! Building Strengths and Happiness

    in Psychology

    Think back to a time you’ve been in a situation where you haven’t been quite sure of yourself, a little tentative, as if you could play it this way or that, almost like a coin toss, you have no idea which way will yield the result you want. But you make up your mind and go for it anyway. After the fact, if you’re happy with the result, maybe you’ve sat back and patted yourself on the back as you’ve let out a sigh of relief, whispering, yes!, I love the way that worked out for me! Or, maybe you’ve walked off, shoulders slumped, thinking, not my finest moment. First off, let’s just say that each of us has found ourselves in this situation at one time or another…and I for one would like to feel more of the yes moments than the shoulders slumped moments! But how do we build that characteristic? Today, as we speak with Shannon Polly, co-founder of Positive Business DC , keep your ears open as she shares exactly how. So throw those shoulders back, and get ready to give me your best YES!

    in Motivation

    Are you a woman who feels comfortable in her skin? Maybe yes, maybe no, may some days.... Whether you’re in a staff meeting or having tea with girlfriends, the bottom line question is this: Do you feel you are worthy? I’m not trying to be provocative, but I am curious, do you know you are enough? Enough what? Smart enough. Pretty enough. Witty enough. Fast enough, enough, enough. Have there been times when you would have welcomed the kindness from another woman, but instead, felt utterly alone…thinking, why have I been left out on this island by myself…surely they’ve felt this way themselves. Why is no one coming to my side? Join us as we speak with Lisa Fey, President of Atta Girl, about what happens when women help women. Let’s discover ways to support other women, and in the process, support the most important woman in your life: YOU. (Don’t be shy men, this is valuable insider information you don’t want to miss!)

    Episode 32: The Opposite of Addiction....

    in Medicine

    Find out why today's guest, Dr. Michelle Robin says, “Part of wellness is being able to look someone in the eye and feel worthy.”

    Dr. Michelle Robin shared the following on her blog: “We all want love and happiness…really connectedness. It’s human nature. Yet somehow the love and relationships we seek often elude us. I’m not just talking about romantic love relationships either. We sometimes struggle with having the deep connections and comfort we desire with friends and family as well. We may even find it difficult to make good connections or attract the ideal clients and business partners with whom we want to work. Why? Maybe it’s because our focus is on seeking external connections instead of finding an internal one.” 

    She said, maybe, and I would say, yes!…Dr. Robin hit the nail on the head: we seek external connections instead of internal ones. It’s my belief that over time, we establish these external connections, these wants and desires, and we simply don’t have very much practice tapping into our internal connections. Join in as Dr. Robin and I share valuable information on how you can create healthy relationships, and learn a basic fact of life you may have never considered: what the opposite of addiction is. You do not want to miss today's show!

    Episode 29: The Truth About Women And Our Bodies

    in Self Help

    Today we are sharing the truth about women and what goes on in our minds about our bodies. When it’s all said and done, what we want is to feel assured that: I am okay. I am enough. I am worth it. Yet so often that’s not what we feel at all. Today we are speaking with the extremely talented photographer Alicia Daw, as she and I have a very open conversation about women and our bodies, self image, confidence, lack of it, where this all stems from, and what we can do about it. It's never too late—not for us—and especially not for our daughters. 

    Come join us today as we make peace with our bodies.

Artie doesn't make messes. He has a unique habit of collecting things. The other Dust Fairies don't appreciate Artie's collection of tidbits, so he spends his nights alone. One cold night, Artie's loneliness leads to inspiration, and he creates something legendary. His story will have families looking at Dust Bunnies in a new light and may actually give kids an excuse NOT to clean their rooms. Artie's story helps kids realize that we all have unique gifts and not everyone fits in with the crowd.  Buy at: www.amazon.com/Legend-Dust-Bunnies-Fairys-Tale/dp/0991624475/
