#224 – “Can We Ever Really Prepare?” – with Amy Taylor-Kabbaz

ATK - Podcast Branding V02-02

Welcome Mamas to this week's Happy Mama Movement Podcast episode.

After years of building a successful business around assisting and educating women to better understand themselves and the world we live in, one questions that I am often asked is around the theme of better preparing for what's to come.

Most of us have read ‘the books', been to ‘the workshops' and ‘the seminars', taken ‘the classes', attended ‘the webinars', and routinely practiced various techniques…

But, has any of this significantly made us less anxious and prepared to fearlessly face the unknown? Can we ever actually prepare ourselves for an unforeseeable future? Can we ever know enough? Can we ever practice enough? Can we ever have enough foresight to maneuver, without taking enumerable falls, the stumbling blocks in our lives?

It seems no matter how hard we try, none of us are removed from the world of things and the uncompromising change that buffets us to and fro' all of our days.

So what is there left for us to do?

In this solo episode, I discuss my impressions and feelings around this dilemma and consider what i believe to be a superior view to take on this age old obstacle. Can we change the paradigm regarding ‘change' itself? Is there a deeper place of peace on which we can depend? Can we find a level of deep trust in this process, so that we can let go, and find lasting joy in these fleeting moments?

Today, I offer you this episode; a humble, still-evolving answer to this question.

I hope you find something of value here.
