Do something every day that pulls you, even just a little, out of your comfort zone.” ~ Tiny Buddha founder Lori Deschene
Today’s episode comes to you from a ferry between Spain and Morocco. Zip up your life vest, because today we’re diving into the hard questions of life.
You know, when you start asking yourself why you’re here, what’s it all about, and why you don’t have what you want, you can start flailing a little bit. It’s easy to focus on perfection (and bemoaning the fact that you’re so far from it) or the unfairness of life that other people have what you want.
Regular thoughtful analysis of why you’re sailing in this direction – plus researching specifically how you can change direction if you’re not happy – is key to always moving toward the life you really crave.
Lori Deschene of Tiny Buddha shares how to take those first steps to answering the hard questions of life for yourself. She shares some pretty personal stories of her own, and you can check out more in her new book, Tiny Buddha’s Guide to Loving Yourself: 40 Ways to Transform Your Inner Critic and Your Life.

On next week’s show, we’ll be talking to a working singer, songwriter, and musician. You’ll find out what kind of hustle it takes to make it as an indie musician today (much like what it takes to be an indie author or an indie anything) and get a sneak peak at our guest’s upcoming CD. But until then we’ll give you a sneak peek of one of her catchy “fan songs” from Facebook: Anti-Socialize.
Until next time, remember to take the first step and keep on moving.
