Tickled Pink Woman Podcast Show Notes:
Sunday, December 16, 2012

Hello and welcome to Episode 7 of the Tickled Pink Woman podcast, a woman’s celebration of self.  The focus of today’s podcast: Identifying a guiding mantra and dreams for 2013…

Musings on last year’s guiding mantra: “No regrets.”

Why I found a guiding mantra to be so very useful:
·      It forced me to stop and mindfully consider actions more so than ever before.
·      It became a “habit.”
·      It worked well for me.

A bit on my process to identify a mantra for the coming year…

Discussion about the finalists and announcement on my selection for 2013…

1.             Best foot forward;
2.             Personal best;
3.             Mindfully graceful;
4.             Action is eloquence;
5.             Savor the journey
6.             Act as if;
7.             Focus. Stretch. Balance.
