035 - Season 2 Kick Off of The Fully Lived Life!

035 - Season 2 Kick Off of The Fully Lived Life!

Welcome to The Fully Lived Life podcast! A podcast for those who are longing to pursue the full life and want to break free from anything that holds them back. Listen in as two friends - a psychologist, Dr. Merry and a life coach, Gillian - talk about life, love and purpose - with wisdom, humour and transparency -  through the lens of science, psychology, and life experiences.

What is your anchor? Dr. Merry and Life Coach Gillian both share how this podcast anchors them as it requires them to do the deep work on themselves so they can show up authentically in each episode.  Merry and Gillian reflect on the summer that was a series of small and still moments that led to big impacts.

Merry shares that this summer was a gift in reframing how she sees life!

Gillian shares that the “still” moments created a rich summer for her.

As we kick off this season our goal is to frame each podcast with the “What”, the “So What” and the “Now What”.

We are using the Jen Hatmaker book “Fierce, Free and Full of FIre” and Dr. Merry’s book “The Fully Lived Life” and other resources as they come to us to frame our conversations.

Today Merry shares some quotes from Jen Hatmaker's book that will lead to some great conversations and she shares  “The 10 commandments for Maturity” from Ronald Rolheiser’s book “ Sacred Fire”. These 10 commandments will impact you and help you move to maturity if you live them out:

  1. Live life in gratitude and thank your Creator by enjoying your life!
  2. Be willing to carry more and more of life’s complexities with empathy.
  3. Transform jealousy, anger, bitterness, and hatred rather than give back in kind.
  4. Let suffering soften your heart rather than harden your soul.
  5. Forgive - those who hurt you, your own sins, the unfairness of your life, and God for not rescuing you.
  6. Bless more and curse less!
  7. Live in a more radical sobriety.
  8. Pray, affectively and liturgically.
  9. Be wide in your embrace.
  10. Stand where you are supposed to be standing, and let God provide the rest.

Dr. Merry offers a therapeutic application and Life Coach Gillian offers a coaching application to lead our listeners towards their own growth and development toward living fully and authentically.
