You’ve been busy working on Leveling Up Your Life and Growing a Garden any Farmers Market Maven would be proud to call their own.
Then one morning you notice weeds have crept in, sprouting up all over your hard work. One problem after another blooms, getting in the way of the garden you’ve meticulously planned out. In an effort to create some level of stability and effect some major damage control, you grab your handy-dandy Weed Whacker and commence to cutting down the riff raff.
Unfortunately, you also manage to chop quite a bit of the good stuff you were trying to protect - What’s Up With That!?
After the dust has settled, you realize the weeds might have been there for a reason - What have you done!? You’ve jumped the gun...screwed the pooch...basically got in your own damned way by worrying about what’s happening around you instead of Keeping Calm and Carrying On.
Tune in to this week’s Success Freaks and learn the importance of taking a breath or two in the face of adversity. Before throwing out both baby and bathwater, make sure you are not missing the opportunities hidden amongst the opposition. Mordant & McFall remind you to relax, take that breath, and not “...take yourself so damned seriously.” After all, “Your biggest adventure lies in the direction of the very things you’re afraid of.”

Taking multi-tasking to new heights (or depths, depending on your perspective), Cynthia Ruchti is the author of recent releases "When the Morning Glory Blooms" (novel) and "Ragged Hope: Surviving the Fallout of Other People's Choices" (nonfiction). She makes potato corn chowder for her husband of 41 years, loves on her three kids and five grandchildren, recently retired from 33 years of writing and producing a daily radio broadcast called THE HEARTBEAT OF THE HOME, writes devotionals for TheChristianPulse.com, is past president of the 2,700-member American Christian Fiction Writers and now serves as ACFW's Professional Relations Liaison, all while working on more book projects in addition to the six already on the shelves.
Love children (mom to 22, grand mom to 35, great grandmom to 7!) chocolate, camping, road-trips, writing, reading mysteries and more, standing up and speaking up for those without a voice. I have worked in children's services, policy and advocacy for 35 years. Married to my best friend, I divide my time between my home and kids in Philadelphia and traveling to speak and teach on the topics I am passionate about - healing and hope for children who have experienced trauma, foster care, adoption, permanent families for all kids, and more. My faith is my rock. After the 3rd of our 3 terminally ill children passed away in 2012 we decided the time had come to write our story and so we are proud and excited to share "Are We There Yet? The Ultimate Road Trip Adopting & Raising 22 Kids" with you all!
It's Spring and Today is Earth Day. So join us for BLOOM BUSINESSES - the business of buds and blooms and those who love flowers, the earth, and want to hear from successful entrepreneurs in this field.

Listeners will leave inspired, informed, educated, and gain a few new ideas, and new perspectives through conversation, some coaching, and hearing from those who have found their "Fortune$".

Gratitude will always guide us back to love and peace. Stepping out of the space of judgment is such a rich experience. Tonight, stand in front of another person and look directly into their eyes and express to them how much they mean to you... watch what blooms in front of you.... Maybe that person is in the mirror.

Valentine's Day is fast approaching! Before you buy roses, find out what the various colors of roses mean to the receipient of the blooms. We'll also be chatting with author and photographer Tony McGehee. His new book; Olivia's Hug will be released soon. Hear Tony describe how no matter what, you gotta "Love It Out" and how the hug of a young girl inspired a book that will inspire you!
About Our Guest:
Tony and Suzi McGehee share their celebration of loving out life by combining Tony's writing from the heart and Suzi's contemporary photography to create custom storybooks and beautiful wall art.
Married for thirty years they still think they're young and believe that extraordinary beauty is in the people they meet each day. Love It Out was created from Suzi's desire to help families photograph their journey. Her favorite images are those capturing the in-between moments. They not only bring us all closer to the experience, but closer to the 'beautiful you' inside.
Together, their shared dream and mission is to reveal beauty.

Although we all begin our lives with Brilliance, like most things in life that we hope will grow strong and expand, we need to foster that growth. We fuel our bodies, brains, relationships, and spirituality among many other aspects in life to sustain them. Brilliance blooms under similar nurturing type activities. What we eat, who we spend time with, the places our body and spirit connect with feeds our Brilliance. Most of know that our bank accounts fare much better if we put more in than we take out. I am not suggesting that you not share your Brilliance, but to replenish it and often to help it shine brighter!
Some key fuel points are:
Stillness/tranquility (Seek it regularly!)
Natural fresh foods (They increase your immune system by sharing the earth's spirit)
Joy & laughter (Find something to smile about at least 3x a day!)
Honoring Your thoughts (Avoid second guessing yourself)
Seeking holistic balance (Not suggesting you join a monastery)
Cook & Imbibe in something fun and the delectiable; it polishes Brilliance if dingy
Read or listen to uplifting words/sounds/wisdom
Remind yourself you are Brilliance with every reflection (Out loud or silently!)
Sometimes Brilliance requires a moment to step back from our daily activities to help it bloom. Take a day to honor your voice; let it rest part of the day. Take a digestive vacation a few hours or days by fasting. if you find yourself feeling out of sorts or start believing Brilliance has passed you by, take a break. However that break manifests for you, enjoy every second as you remind your Brilliance it always has the ability to shine. Join me for a little Brilliance! I look forward to watching yours shine! *artwork by Qwaisius Shaun Peterson
