Welcome to the first episode of The Sisu Way Podcast. There are many reasons for this passion project, and I’d like to start the show with my ‘why’. One of the major themes is the awareness, appreciation, connection and gratitude for life and the opportunity to leave lessons for the next generation. In this episode I share a deeply personal experience (12:41) and lesson in the balance of life and death. Within the same week, my first son was born and my father died. Life is a privilege, not a guarantee. It’s a reminder that health is wealth, and there is no time to waste in sharing how you feel with your loved ones. With that being said, I encourage you to start writing for your loved ones, and have the generation in front of you do the same. Don’t assume your kids know that much about you as a person, or that there will be lessons for them if something were to happen to you. There is generational information that is lost between is, and there is something we can do about it!
Another reason for the show is to motivate, inspire, and help others. I want to grow this together into a movement for service and personal growth. Surrendering, writing more on social media, and opening up personal thoughts is something I decided to do because I found it reached someone at the right time. That connection helps build us both up. Battles, adversity challenges are all universal and unavoidable but we have a choice how to react to it. Our attitudes and thoughts are in our control. Accountability is happiness and strength is a choice.
This episode was a relief for me to record. I did not know how I would feel recording solo for the first time, but I am glad I did it. I hope you appreciate my honesty and I humbly thank you for listening. I am very excited for what this show has in store for all of us!
