Surviving Life’s Challenges


                                                                       Life sure can have the potential to stink sometimes!

When things in life go sour, one helpful way of getting through it is to listen to someone else’s life issues. Usually that makes our own disappointments seem so small.  If you’ve been honoring your creativity long enough you already know that life’s pain is no stranger on the path to creativity.

I recently found the “Death, Sex and Money Podcast” done by Anna Sale. She is an excellent interviewer who seems wise beyond her years. She asks poignant questions and gets deep truths out of all her interviewees. If you appreciate honesty and learning from others’ experiences you will enjoy this podcast.

I’m posting this episode as an example of the touching depth Anna gets out of her interviewees.  I have to credit the interviewees for being brave enough to share their personal stories too.



I’ve always enjoyed Ellen Burstyn and her work. She seems like such a sweet woman. And how one can stay sweet with all that she survived needs its own award show. When will they have award shows like that?

There are many more interviewees who cross the line into Vulnerabilityland… like Bill Withers, Jane Fonda, etc. and some not so famous, but equally fascinating people who teach you what life is like from their perspective.

So whether you are trying to get through some painful challenges or not…this is a very magnetizing podcast that deserves attention.
