Mu (marti upson) in conversation with Self and other BEings. Spirituality, art, music, writing, creating, healing, Life, Flow, and infinitely more...
I had some technical issues during this one, but hopefully not too bad. I was disconnecte and had to call back in to rejoin the conversation about two minutes later... =) What did I miss?!
The live listeners were cut-off abruptly at the hour mark (lesson learned to schedule over the alloted time), but the recorded/archived version continued for about 15 minutes more until... the music was abruptly cut off! (Again lesson learned. =))
Thank you for listening and supporting the BEing With Mu podcast! <3 - mu
As if celebrating 50 years of songwriting, with over 900 songs to his credit isn't enough. Brian Gari also managed to author a book about his Broadway show "Late Nite Comic". "We Bombed in London" was followed by a slight detour with "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way to My Stress Test" and "Close Encounters of the Celebrity Kind". This classic overachiever is still making music, and taking some time to take a trip on May and Cynthia's cyber time machine...if they can speed up fast enough to catch him. Front row seats available...
Are you familiar with this scenario? Are you frustrated, overwhelmed, stressed out, stuck and want out of a job, or a toxic relationship? Are you desperately seeking how to balance your life and live a well fulfilled one?
"I've worked some rough jobs and faced many obstacles and at times, different health afflictions, but I press on. I've known struggle on all levels, yet I've learned how to be thankful for everything I have. I'm a balancing act and a woman of perseverance and tenacity. I've been the woman that knows what it's like to balance 3-4 jobs all to keep food on the table and to pay the bills" ~~ Holly Tong
Wait till you hear her story:
When Life Hurrican occurs, perseverance & tenacity are key ingredients for thriving and surviving! This week, the Southern Warrior Sisters talk with Author~ Holly Tong about her childhood challenges as the most shy girl in the class. Holly Tong represents the independent woman who has overcome struggle and learned how to thrive no matter what her relationship status or even her overall circumstances are.
She recently released a humorous dating book called "Chick Flicks Lie" (Sugar-free Accounts of a Positive Pessimist), which is a light-hearted look at what goes on in the life of a single person today.
In her own words, "I moved to Nashville when I was 20 because of songwriting dreams, but the Lord has had many other plans for me. I've rerouted and had to take many detours along the way..."
