In honor of Rochelle's 78th birthday, she has requested that "Thank You" be the featured phrase of the week.

"Thank you" is simple, to the point and you can use this particular phrase in response to....well...whatever may be coming your way.

"Thank you" works with pleasure and, it even works with pain, because no matter what may befall you, you can always mine it for some kind of "goodie" to be thankful for.
As it has occurred to me, "No matter what, gratitude is always an appropriate response."
Now, I understand how difficult this may be in the middle of excruciating pain or torture, which requires an advanced course in gratitude. But for most of us the garden variety of travails and tribulations we encounter daily often as not fall into the categories of irritations, annoyances, frustrations or bummers.  Gratitude works quite well with any of those predicaments.
At the very least it will create a pattern interrupt which, if you can bear it, will open the possibility that you do not have to be bummed out by these disturbing affronts to your well being.  
Gratitude, particularly the "Thank You" kind can actually open the door to finding the meaning or advantage contained in any displeasure.  And if you can do this more and more often, you just might find that you are not the victim of these unpleasant offenses, but can transform any of them into your growth and benefit.
So, I hope you are inclined to say, "Thank you," for this insight, but if you're not quite there yet, "Let me think about it," is a good place to start.
To help you think more deeply (and humorously) about it, please join us tomorrow morning (Sunday) at 8 AM (PT) as we celebrate Rochelle's birthday with you and discover all the hidden places "thank you's" have been hanging out waiting for your attention..
As usual our program includes humor, music, insights and surprises.
So, if I may, I'd like to say, "thank you" in advance to you for choosing to be with us as we discover just how much there really is to be thankful for. And, of course, a big thank you the happy birthday wishes you're sending to Rochelle.
Talk to you in the morning.
We are Rochelle and Errol Strider

The purpose of "Insight Out--the Naked Truth" is to help you (en)lighten your life by getting to the core of any issue that concerns you (issues that frustrate, confuse, bug, disturb you or just boggle the mind--hence "The Naked Truth")

So much of the troubles and suffering in our world come from limited perspectives, un-challenged beliefs and assumptions and last but not least, taking ourselves way to seriously. Many humans struggle unnecessarily because the context in which we attempt to understand our lives, establish values and make decisions is conditioned by ignorance, fear and confused thinking.

Through conscious conversation, sketches, poetry, music, guests, interviews, and call in "Insight Out--the Naked Truth" exposes the human condition in order to expand our awareness, develop wisdom and make life a more joyous and creative experience.

Please join us and participate in the conversation.
