017: REAL is Something You Become–My REALIFE Story

REALIFE stories matter. In this special edition of the podcast, I'll share some of my REALIFE story through the lens of the Enneagram. We’ll begin with the beloved Children’s Classic, The Velveteen Rabbit, and talk about how it weaves into my personal journey of becoming REAL, my family’s story through joy and sorrow, and even my business, The REALIFE Process®.

Both the Velveteen Rabbit and the tool of the Enneagram have been instrumental for my family in the journey of becoming REAL. Through the hardship and pain of our son's addiction to drugs and alcohol, we learned so much as a family about our own REALSELF stories, the journey to recovery, and the invitation to embrace the moments. 

The transformation continues, “...but once you are REAL you can’t become unreal again. It lasts for always.” 

Thank you for listening to my REALIFE story. I would love to hear your story and invite you to share with me through my email at [email protected]

And remember, "Every Ordinary Day has Extraordinary Moments–You Just Have to Look for Them."
