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.

Fortune Cookie Friday: The Means of Happiness

Ok, so, as I mentioned in this post here, Fortune Cookie Friday will be an occasional feature here at positively b.e.e. I get a lot of these every time I order Chinese food or go out, plus I sometimes buy a package of them (you can get a big box here), because I like them a lot.

I find the sayings inside often start a train of thought, for me, so I may as well share those trains here and see what you have to say about it, and I invite you to share your fortune cookie fortunes with me as well!

So without further adieu, the first fortune cookie fortune on this site:

"We cannot be happy unless we think we are the means of good to others."
What do you guys think of that?

My first, knee-jerk reaction to this was: "Nah."

But that was my brain trying to get in the way of my heart. When I tell my brain to pipe down, I get so much more out of thi…

Fortune Cookie Friday: Bide Your Time

Hello fortune lovers! I hope you have had a most excellent week!

Here is today's fortune:

Bide your time, for success is near.
This one has me scratching my head a tiny bit. Is it saying to just cool my heels and wait for success to show up? I mean, to bide your time means to wait, but I've never been good at that. :) Let's explore this concept a little more.

Imagine the following scenario:

You really want to launch a new business. You develop a product, and then put it up on the internet to sell it. Do you then sit back and wait to see if it'll sell?

You're going to market it, right? You're going to place ads, tell everyone you know, maybe hold an open house or pass out flyers or business cards.

That said, there is value in patiently following the steps you need in order to be successful, and not shortcutting on any of the stages or materials.

Fortune Cookie Friday: The Roving Bee

Hello, and happy Friday! I hope you've all had a great week. It is Fortune Cookie Friday, so let's see what today holds:
It's the roving bee 🐝 that gathers honey. 🍯
First of all, I'd like to start with a side note: I love how my house is a virtual scavenger hunt when it comes to fortunes. It's fun for me when I find them. I have these things tucked away in all kinds of tiny little places, and it never ceases to amaze me when I come upon one that seems to speak exactly to what I'm thinking at the time. This one was tucked away in a drawer, with a rusty old paperclip on it. I have no idea what it used to be clipped to, by the way, but I took the clip off to take the photo, and it left those imprints on the paper. I don't even know how long I've had this one, but it has probably traveled with me through several moves over sever…
