The Implementation Dip is a massive part of the change process.  It has been studied in education for decades and is a massive part of the strategic planning.  It shows us that when we first start to change and put in maximum effort, we aren’t going to see the result we want right away.  In fact, we will see a dip in our performance and results.  In this episode, Amy explains what the implementation dip is, how it effects us in recovery, and shares her methods for navigating this dip.

We need our emotions. They keep us alive. They make the world worth living.  If we couldn't feel pain, joy, fear, anger, or love what would we do with ourselves? We need them. AND we need to keep them in perspective and in their proper place. And that place is NOT in the driver's seat!  Listen to Amy talk about where our emotions need to be - and how you can figure out who's driving your path.

In the continuation of the drama series, I discuss how amazingly quickly we can shift between roles on the triangle. It is SO CRAZY! We all have our favorite chair, our gateway into the drama. However, we don't stay there.  We never stay there. Using several personal and other examples, I share with you just how quickly we can make ourselves sick on the cyclone of drama as we ping around from corner to corner.  You'll want to get off!  I promise!

I have been so touched recently by how many of you have reached out asking questions or wanting to connect.  It is hard to reach out!  It is hard to ask for help.  In this episode, I share emails from two recent listeners wanting some connection and help.  Are you wanting connection and help? Reach out!  Let's start connecting!

My mom has always told me: Amy, you have the grades you are willing to pay the price for.  Amy, you have the spirituality you are willing to pay the price for. Amy, you have the piano skills you are willing to pay the price for.  Everything we have in our lives are things we are paying a price for.  We pay a price to live in active addiction.  We pay a price to live in recovery.  We pay a price to have the relationships we do.  In this episode, I explore what it is you are paying the price for, and how you move to the next level of recovery you are looking for!

I think we've all been there.... the place where we have to start over, again. And we start asking ourselves - is it worth it? I've tried this before and couldn't make it work. Maybe I'm just broken beyond repair? Maybe I just can't get sober, stay sober, date, be successful, have a relationship, or any other number of things in our lives that we want. Why keep putting myself through this??  I feel that way right now. I hope by sharing my experience with you - and my willingness  - you will also have the courage to try again.

Our world is not linear. Yet, many times we think that is how it “should” be. We work through something, trauma, addiction, relationships, mother issues, or whatever it is, we feel some resolution around it, and we think that is over. Then weeks, months, or maybe even years later, something happens and here we are stuck back in the middle of it again. We say to ourselves – I worked through this already – why am I here again??  You’re here again because our world is not linear. Listen to Amy talk about her experiences with circling back and how we can use the principles of Non-Euclidean Geometry in our recovery.

Using a recent entry from her journal, Amy discusses daily courage. How do we find the daily courage needed to face the overwhelm we sometimes feel?  How do we practically find the courage to stay present, say no, trust others and challenge the scarcity mindset we sometimes find ourselves in? In this episode, Amy offers some suggestions on how we build and maintain courage in our lives and issues the challenge:  What courage to you need today?
