Making my life better
Welcome to the 58th episode of Giving Back Insights, my Thursday solo show where I talk about how our guests and their charities serve others, to explore actions each of can take to make a difference in people’s lives and to share. Today I’m discussing Lessons to share with Callum. Listen to today’s episode and don’t forget to give your feedback and valuable comment. Enjoy!
Talking with my editor Callum Crowe about putting all this learning I’m doing into a book
Steve Stone and the two commandments from Jesus
Matthew 25:34-40, serving each other is serving God. How simple is that? And how beautiful!
What are some of the most important lessons I want to share with Callum if I were his life coach:
My oldest son Carson contributes the video game philosophy, “If you’re encountering obstacles, you’re on the right path.”
Bonus: about giving, a little or a lot. Carson says: do both. And he’s right. That way it’s easy AND significant. Wow.
Kate Schell, my accountability coach. The most important part that I want to be accountable for is my focus on serving. What I shared with her about what I get out of giving:
I traded a mid-life crisis for a mid-life awakening and am reaping the rewards of a renewed marriage and deeper connection to my children than ever before.
JC Cavanaugh in Freedym just this morning: Comparison is the thief of joy.
Yeah, put aside the comparison and enjoy. Live your gratitude by joyfully sharing with others.
Last and maybe the most important, from Cecilia: It’s not how stunted your growth is, it’s how expansive the experience of giving is. Amazing words of wisdom from an amazing lady.
It’s all around us, we just need to be open to receive.
Remember: Always err on the side of love & kindness. Look what it does for you!
Love & Gratitude,
JC Cavanaugh, Kate Schell, Callum Crowe, Steve Stone Sr — thank you for being a part of my life and letting the sun shine in! Here we go, baby!
