Season 2. Episode 10: Brian on The Navigating Transitions

Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia. Thank you for listening in.

Today, we are linking British Columbia and Alberta.

Brian, my brother, came back to continue the discussion on embracing a greater journey.  Today, we are looking at transitions and life cycles. How to navigate the stages of life.

Do we recognize that we have stages in life? How do we live the fullest in the stage of life that we find ourselves in? How do we embrace the twists and turns that life gives us? How do we gracefully give up the things of youth and embrace the age of wisdom? How do we applaud the next generation?

So put the kettle on and add to the conversation on TeaToastTrivia.com. I am your host and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.

    These podcasts with your family are so warm and lively, filled with humor and affection. In my later stages of life, I find it interesting how my mind seems so much younger than my body 🙂 I have the same curiosity and love of learning of my youngest self, and I see this among your family and blogger friends as well. Thank you for just being you and for introducing me to so many other like minded souls!

      I enjoy our conversations, Mary Jo – they are heartwarming and life-affirming. I find that we must engage in these types of conversations because they feed the soul. I was reading that “angry” conversations do not have any resolution but are ongoing, feeding on the anger. Interestingly, some of those angry conversations are with ourselves. I am with you. I feel as young in mind as I did when I 18, only with a history of experiences that have added depth and breadth to my understanding. I am filled with gratitude for friendships that have given joy to my days. Thank you for being a kindred spirit and lighting the path ahead. We are on a profound journey, which becomes ever more grand as we move forward on our timelines. Hugs!

        Brian is our resident (family) philosopher. He has a wonderful sense of humour and keeps us ever on the edge of our seats when he tells a story. I am so glad that he has agreed to come on the podcast from time to time. I enjoy our conversations. Thank you for listening in!!!

  2. Brian’s comments about stages in life having no set boundaries resonated with me. I think, for the most part, it’s true. The exception for me is with the death of each member of my immediate family. After each loss, my life entered a new stage; nothing could ever been the same.

      How very true. There is a before and an after. Nothing will be the same with partings. There will be a return to joy, but it is marked with a poignant reminder the life moves on and we must too. Even so, there is a part of me that will always remain frozen in the time of before.
