A different kind of podcast
In this podcast, I share my everyday experiences of life—the ones we all go through—with the purpose of helping us reflect more deeply about them so we grow through them.
I’ve learnt in my life that this is something I’ve always done. I’m never silent in my head. I’m always asking questions and processing information, always aware of the fragility of the ground we stand on, and how easy it is to slip from profound wisdom to crazy madness.
As I share my insights, fears and failings, I hope for two things in particular. One, is to help you be more accepting and forgiving of yourself. Living is not for the faint-hearted—you will stumble and fall again and again. I hope it brings a sense of okayness to it all.
And secondly, I hope it helps you see your own brilliance and to tap into your inherent wisdom and courage. Because eventually our stories are all the same. And when we listen to others tell their story, we see the hero in ourselves.
I believe this to be my purpose in life—to be the window through which you can see into your soul. Because the soul is where you’ll find your fears, longings and sources of love and light.
How the name came about…
Do you remember the song from the early 1990s called Like is a Highway by Tom Cochrane? As newly weds, me and my husband would think it was really cool to cruise through downtown Toronto at night with the song blaring loudly in our car 🙂
Fast forward many decades and one day me and my four kids were trying to get somewhere in a new city and without a GPS. I missed the exit and there we were, speeding along on the highway, without a clue as to where we were going.
A couple of kids started crying in the backseat, and the panic built up. I began feeling a little numb and woozy in my head. And then out of nowhere, the song came back to me—and with it came a sense of relief.
Life is a highway after all, I thought. How easy it is to miss the exit and lose our direction.
AND—how easy it is to get back on the highway if we don’t start beating ourselves up for having missed the exit.
That is what a GPS does for us. As the wonderful psychotherapist Sylvia Boorstein says, we can always be the GPS in the car—when we make a mistake, we need to learn to simply say Recalculating, until we figure out how to get back on track.
This podcast is everything on the highway—the fun, the misses and the recalculating. Stay tuned!
