Be Your Own Cookie

Maura_Happy Inside Out

If you’ve ever baked cookies with a cookie cutter, you’ll know exactly where this message is heading. In this light hearted podcast, I talk about the well-intentioned but sometimes limited paths we occupy because of our upbringing and “cookie cutter” social training. As a result, many of us leave extra cookie dough on the kitchen’s cutting room table. We’ve forgotten to cook up our life with self-expressed flavorings, spices and flair. Listen as I share a bit about zumba instructor Debbie Rivas who grew out of her own cookie cutter upbringing. Drawing upon an early but unfulfilled desire to become a teacher, she continues to grow and express her life in new and fun ways toward that end. Doing so, she’s become her own kind of cookie – a happy one. Then, listen to author Brenda Martin share what makes her happy from the inside out, too!
