I had no idea I was going to write about this today, but when I thought about whether or not I should mention it . . .

I don’t feel like I have a choice as I’m still pretty shaky.

Sunday afternoon we were hit pretty bad in a car accident.

Josh, myself and Kuma were driving down a quiet side street here in Venice when a driver sped through a back alleyway — without stopping — and slammed into the side of our car.

The impact was horrific. Glass shattered everywhere, and in an instant our car was forced underneath another parked car on the side of the road.

Thank God, we’re all fine (save nasty bruises, soreness, totaled cars, Kuma peed on my pants – LOL etc.).

The most upsetting thing though is how my mind keeps flashing these “alternate reality” scenarios in my head. These horrible, mini movies where if it were just a few seconds off . . .

Either Josh, Kuma or myself may not have survived. That’s really is the worst part for me — everytime I shut my eyes or try to rest, they come up.

So before we get into today’s episode, I invite you to take a moment to connect with and express your genuine love for the dearest people in your life.

It’s so easy (as we all know) to get caught up in stuff that doesn’t really matter. Silly arguments. Withholding love because you get cranky and want to be “right.” Being too busy to savor the simple, ordinary and miraculous gift of life.

Because within a split second, it can all be taken away.

Thanks in advance for listening. I honestly am feeling better just writing this to you and getting it off my chest.

Now onto today’s episode which is all about having the courage to really LIVE your life while you’re here.

My suggestions in this episode still stand, but another perspective to really reconnect to the juice you already have in your life (especially in light of Sunday) is the miraculous tool of gratitude, which we did a whole episode on here.

If you wanted more info on the other video we did about self-doubt and not feeling good enough, you can find that here.

Now in the comments below, I’d love to hear from you.

Have you ever found yourself feeling like something’s missing even though you have a good life?

What did you do to change it?

Or when’s the last time you did something despite feeling self-conscious or scared of what other people would think?

Make your comment specific as your stories, ideas and experiences help us all.

Thank you, so very much, for being here — for listening and for being a part of my life.

With love,
