200. Muddling through...Transitions and Goodbyes

Out of the Ordinary 200

Key Conversation Points:

  • Why is Christie afraid of mediocrity? Scared of being normal? Let's not miss out on an experience because we're trying to make it extraordinary!
  • There is grace in muddling through the unique transitions and goodbyes that aren't ordinary or daily. We can do it differently than our past.
  • If you're wanting to mark a ritual as something special, you may not have to look far.
  • Lower the bar in a healthy way.  Give yourself permission to be a human. Whether a kid is driving, going to college or something else....do whatever you can to take off the weight it can bring.
  • Books mentioned:
    Wholeheartedness: Busyness, Exhaustion, and Healing the Divided Self by Chuck DeGroat.
    Wild Things: The Art of Nurturing Boys by David Thomas and Stephen James.
