Episode 85: The Storm Has Passed. Now What?

Sep 29, 2023


If you have recently gone through a difficult time in your life and are on the other side and still navigating your new life with all of it’s changes, this episode is for you. You see… we get through the most difficult part of the storm… and then the dust settles and then everything looks different.

The landscape around us has totally changed… like we got picked up and relocated to another place against our will and without our permission. Our loved one is no longer with us. Our friends have changed. The food we eat now is different. Our actual physical location is different, our routine is different… and it’s like… Toto… we are not in Kansas any more.

On today’s episode, we are going to answer the question… what happens after you have been through a difficult time in your life and the dust is starting to settle? What are you supposed to do when you feel like your entire life has been upended and you’re trying to figure out what this new landscape is like? 

The answer is powerful, it involves flamingos in Pennsylvania, and I think it’s going to surprise you.

Together, we unpack:

  • What do skepticism, spontaneous adventures, and flamingos have to do with each other? 
  • How gratitude plays a role in navigating the changes after a difficult time.
  • What happens after going through difficult times and the dust starts to settle?
  • The 5 actionable steps to take after you have gone through a challenging time.
