Making A Difference Radio

For those of you who don't know, I am one of the co-hosts for a weekly streaming radio show called Making A Difference Radio ("MADR"). It is a round-table discussion with the cast, and features a different topic each week. During our episodes, we open phone lines to guests to call in and talk with us if they'd like, as well.

The goal of the show is to shine light on some of life's challenges and discuss how we deal with them, to redirect our energies into better paths, and to find our true selves again. It was started by my friend Eddie Simmers, and he put together the team as it is today, with Chris Labant, Michael Terio, Lana Jarvie, and finally, yours truly.

Over the past few months we have discussed some pretty interesting topics, including how to deal with family relationships, how to set healthy boundaries, and a whole host of other things. Despite the potential heaviness of some of the subjects, though, we have a heck of a lot of fun together!

Tonight, we will be discussing what it means to feel overwhelmed, and each of us will talk about how we deal with that emotion. Tune in at 8pm Eastern time tonight by clicking on this link.

I hope you can join us!  And don't worry: if you can't catch us live, you can click on the same link above to listen to the archive at any time after broadcast. Also, please consider heading over to MADR's Facebook page and giving us a "like" so you'll always be updated on new episodes.

See you there!

PS - my husband just knocked together a makeshift studio for me in our storage/workroom. Eventually, we'll scale it, but I am grateful for his help in getting this far with the setup. He decided to capture the moment here to share with you all.

Inaugural Post!

Hi, welcome to positively b.e.e.! My name is Beth, but I’ve been called “Bee” since childhood by family and close friends, and I’m a pretty positive person, hence the name of this site. This inaugural post will explain a little bit about what you can expect to see here.

After nearly dying from an accident in 2006, I realized that life was potentially shorter than anticipated, and figured I’d better get with the program and enjoy it. After living in fear and negativity for many, many years, and doing a lot of work on myself, I have:
  • achieved more calm in a world full of chaos; 
  • found more love in a world filled with fear; and 
  • attained more peace in a world that can feel like we’re at war with ourselves. 
I started this site to share all that awesome POSITIVITY with YOU. That’s right! We’re gonna shine some LIGHT in this place, share some JOY with the world, and have some GRATITUDE for it all. Just call me a one-stop-shop for good cheer!

You’ll see some of my thoughts on the things all of us deal with in life, some things that make me happy (shout out to fellow knitters!), random inspiration, and references to spiritual issues -- sky’s the limit, really! No matter the content, though, the themes will be the same: positivity, light, joy, and gratitude.

One caveat, though: I’m not a professional, well, keep in mind these are only my thoughts on making sense of my world -- nothing more. That said, I hope what you see here is entertaining, uplifting, funny, and makes your day just that much nicer for having read it. 

Thanks for joining me on this new adventure!
