What you missed last week:

I’m spoke to Tammy Furey. Tammy is a Coach for parents, a 3 Principles practitioner, and she is currently writing a book about her unique take on gratitude.

Gratitude is a scientifically proven answer to happiness but Tammy noticed many of her clients were struggling with it. Tammy had an insight about gratitude and her passion now is sharing her understanding so it can help others. In this show, Tammy shares her philosophy about the three stages of gratitude:

And on this week’s show…

 I’m here today with Lea Ann Mallett, a wild woman, activist and midlife momma who believes fiercely that we all have a wild place within us that feeds our magic. Her greatest desire is to make the world a better place by demonstrating to everyone that our everyday choices DO change the world. In her activism she has travelled from direct action wilderness activist to nonprofit leader, from sitting in an ancient cedar for three days to protest clear-cut logging to leading forest protests to creating thriving nonprofits. She now inspires mission-driven leaders to greater impact as a leadership coach, is creating a new vision for activism, and she creates photo-essays of life, love and connection in her blog “Becoming Undomesticated”.

Lea Ann did lots of big, meaningful things but now sees that some of that anger-fuelled action didn’t create sustainable change. Her philosophy is now all about the power of small actions and also love in action. We’re talking about the fact that every single one of us have to power to change the world for the better.

What you’ll learn from the show:

  • We are all activists because we’re all taking action in every moment. We can all choose to take small actions that change the world in a positive way.

  • When we internalise loving kindness to ourselves, when we’re comfortable with who we are, it becomes natural for our small actions to be imbued with loving kindness. People doing ordinary things with love, taking the time to connect, becomes extraordinary. World-changing, in fact! :)

  • The ripples that we start today can go on to create huge changes through time and space. Isn’t it amazing to think of the ways that people’s small actions years ago have created who we are today (and how wonderful if we also have the opportunity to thank them). We all have the power to be someone else’s ripple!

We’d love to know what came up for you as you listened to this show. Let’s carry on the conversation…  leave a comment below or connect to Lea Ann via the link below.
