Here we are doing the recording for BYU Radio on the show called "Choosing Happiness". If you missed the live segment, you can listen to it here in their archives, where it is available for streaming or podcast.
We had quite a day leading up to the recording. Danny raced from work to get to the sound studio. He was stuck in traffic so bad he had to ditch his car on the upper east side and RUN! to the subway to get downtown. I raced from Brooklyn after a very intense day full of deadlines + I was ditching my house guests. Due to so many obligations, Danny & I didn't even have time to discuss our thoughts or think about what they might ask us. I can assure you that as we approached that recording, we had to apply everything that we write about on the blog.....be still, dismiss fear & worry, etc., etc. Well, it worked. It always does. We just gave each other a quick kiss and sat in the chairs. I had a copy of "Mother's Day for an Infertile Woman" on my lap. I guess I just wanted to remind myself of what choosing happiness has been like for me.
Even though Danny & I had never been on the radio before, somehow we felt calm, because we had been doing the work to dismiss the pressure & intensity of our day. If you hear my voice tremble as we got started, it was not out of fear. It was because I was enveloped with emotion & gratitude, even with a tear in my eye. I just felt humbled that after four months, someone would actually want to interview us on the radio. And I felt grateful for the tools that I had to focus my heart & feel full of peace in that moment...even as I was about to discuss that very topic for all to hear. It was beautiful to see, again & again, that we always have a choice in how we react to our circumstances. Whether they are great or small, we always have a choice to tap into something beautiful.
Wishing you all a LOVELY Valentine's Day!
P.S. Two more sexy Haikus coming up later today!!
