Episode Description

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh How do you respond when you tune into the sound of a drum roll? It definitely catches our focused attention because it has a physical vibrational effect on us. From your inner core source, make an active choice to vibrate with hope, joy and happiness. As you get outside into nature’s simple beauty and vibrate with focused feelings, it will change your perspective on what truly matters. You can try a new approach to something you do on a regular basis such as walking around your neighborhood. If you take a garbage bag with you and pick up anything left by others that does not belong in the natural scene – give yourself a drum roll for picking up the natural space. Rather than feeling agitated, shift your focus to enjoy the effect of your efforts. Join Mighty Gems and learn how to access more peace and joy in your life.

Kayli Martin

Kayli Martin has always had a passion for thinking about the big questions in life, who are we, why are we here, and given that we are here, how should we live. In her academic work as a philosopher, she focused on ethics and more specifically the question of how should we live, meaning how should we treat each other. During her academic career, she developed an answer to this question that is easy to understand and to use as a guiding principle. It does not give specific answers to specific situations, instead, it gives a lens through which to look at a situation. For over 20 years, Kayli has applied this principle to real life situations both as a manager of a large department and as a small business owner. She has successfully taught this principle to people who come to her with questions regarding troubling situations facing them. These people have found it to be a helpful code for their lives.
