  • On this week’s podcast Jane and Wendy discuss three quotes that Wendy brought forward as the spring board for their conversation.

    You can live your life out of circumstance or you can live your life out of vision.
    ~ Werner Erhard

    Pain pushes until the vision pulls.
    ~ Reverend Dr. Michael Beckwith

    Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.
    ~ Jean-Paul Sartre

    Each of these quotes centres around the idea of the push and the pull in life. Jane and Wendy talk about how the discomfort and even pain of the push can lead to the greatest discovery.

    Wendy’s Takeaways

    The reminder that sharing our story, our journey, our pain and our response to it in the hopes of our growth, in the desire for our breakthrough is a double please. Our experience and the ripple effects of that shared experience.

    Jane’s Takeaways

    To be remembered as being available for someone. That the pain in the push can lead to such growth

  • This week on the Love Letters, Life, and Other Conversations podcast Jane and Wendy discuss 'The 5 balls of Life' speech by Coca-Cola's former CEO Brian Dyson and the concept of having a purpose or a raison d'etre, as the springboard for their conversation.

    The five balls of life are made up of work, family, health, friends and spirit. Jane and Wendy discuss the importance of these, and that ultimately it is having purpose or a raison d'etre that gives life meaning. They talk about how purpose can change and evolve with the seasons in life, but that it is also really simple - their reason for being is to enjoy the simple pleasures in life and be present in and for them.

    Wendy’s Takeaways

    Even if your reason for living seems silly or inconsistent with others, if it makes your heart swell and everything inside you screams Yes! Please...it is enough, you are enough. Be 100% committed to your success!

    Jane’s Takeaways

    That the purpose of her life is to taste and experience everything to the utmost of her ability and to reach out and truly feel what is there for her. To have new experiences without fear.

  • This week on the Love Letters, Life, and Other Conversations podcast Jane and Wendy use a long love, and slightly modified quote by John C Maxwell as their springboard. The original quote is 'Learn to say no to the good so you can say yes to the best'. Wendy shares that she has held this quote near and dear for a long time with a slight modification to 'say not to the good and yes to the best!'

    The talk about how this is essentially setting personal non-negoitables and priorities to ensure that you have space to the things that are a full body yes! And, that those yeses can change based on the season you are in time wise and growth wise.

    Wendy’s Takeaways

    to look at her calendar and review what is a full body yes and what needs to be a no.

    Jane’s Takeaways

    that the yeses are our personal non-negoitables and we need to honour those.

  • This week on the Love Letters, Life, and Other Conversations podcast we welcome our second guest to the podcast. Jane speaks with one of her Chateau Life Residency guests, Dr. Ruth Anderson. They use a quote by one of Jane's favorites, Yung Pueblo, as a springboard for their conversation about anxiety and its role in peak performance.

    Ruth is a sports psychologist specializing in peak performance for athletes. She works with athletes working under pressure to manage their thought processes so that they can have an awareness of how to think when they are actually performing. The idea is to equip people proactively to be self aware of their psychological processes and how to perform when they need to in a high performance way.

    Jane and Ruth talked about how the skills applied by high performance athletes are applicable to those in business and the average person who wants to function at their best level.

    Anxiety is a universal emotion. The flight or fight reflex. And when flight is your reaction of choice this is not because of weakness. Think of it rather that anxiety can actual help you perform better because you are aware and your reaction and decision making time is heightened. What you need to learn is how to not allow the anxiety to stay high, but how to manage it and perform in the moment.

    The only thing that is within your control is what you think what you do and what you focus on. What do you need to do to get the best outcome possible for your situation.

    If you’re not 20-30% anxious about something, you are probably not challenging yourself. If you want to move forward you have to be willing yourself in that challenged position, but have the skills to put into place.

    Jane share some of her current tools for managing anxiety:

    Implementing ‘worry time’ which can help manage anxiety in an incremental way vs letting it become overwhelming. The 5-4-3-2-1 processHabit Stacking

    Ruth shared that there are some common though traps:

    Common thought trapsSelf doubtWorryPredictionsRuminations

    She also share that it is important to individualize what is right for you, but that there are two practical things we can do for our mind and our body to help manage our anxiety and improve our performance:

    Slow deep abdominal breathing Work on our awareness - paying attention to what you are thinking

  • This week on the Love Letters, Life, and Other Conversations podcast Jane and Wendy use a listeners email as a springboard and an example of how recognition of the state of things can be a love letter to your relationship.

    They talk about how recognition of the state of things is the first step to growing in a relationship. Wendy shares a quote by Cherralea Morgen, “Life is not fair. Sometimes you get a splinter sliding down a rainbow.” and they both remind us not to panic, because the reality is, that there are ebbs and flows in a relationship but that being intentional about checking in and connecting is key to sustaining a close relationship.

    Wendy’s Takeaways

    That our story has impact and the lovely way in which our stories have a ripple effect when they are shared. How this podcast is like having others seated at our table and provides an opportunity for our stories to be shared. The way in which ‘Eve’ is intentionally approaching her current situation with a beautiful sense of how her actions are going to be successful. Jane’s Takeaways

    How ‘Eve’ recognized her relationship had gone a bit beige and she showed courage in her intentional instigation to take action to refresh the connection.How important is when we are in a state of ‘instigating’ change that we are really looking after our own well being at the same timeThank you to our 'Eve' this week for sharing your beautiful love letter with us.

  • This week on the Love Letters, Life, and Other Conversations podcast we are delighted to have our first guest! Last week we shared a beautiful and inspiring love letter from a listener who we no longer need to call 'Eve'. Trish Donnelly joins Wendy to talk about the letter, her story and reflect on last week's podcast.

    Wendy and Trish share a beautiful conversation about being women of faith and how that has supported them, how Trish's story inspires others, the gift of reaching for our dreams and so much more.

    Jane was kept away this week by all the delightful details with Chateau Residency, but she will be back next week as Trish will return so the three of them can dig in deeper to this amazing love letter.

  • This week on the Love Letters, Life, and Other Conversations Podcast Jane and Wendy share love letters to their future selves. This springboard comes from an exercise from Jane’s online class ‘I Want More the Next 30 Years’. Both Jane and Wendy read their letters and talk about the impact that writing and reading these letters had for them.

    Wendy’s Takeaways

    The idea that our experiences are ours to own, even when they are shared. Being invited into someone else’s space to share in their ‘world’ still leave you open to the ownership of the experience itself.The collaboration with her daughter Amelia in the experience of spending an extended period in France, and the decision to offer this type of immersive experience for other mother/child duos through future Mommy and Me trips;

    Jane’s Takeaways

    The last line of her letter ‘You surround yourself with kind and genuine people. Love and tenderness is your go to language and you are fluent.’ She will be very happy if this goal becomes a reality for her future self.

    The idea of having groups of friends based on the seasons in life and groups that meet different needs in our lives.

    Jane’s Takeaways
    How friends can move in and out of the current handful that you are deeply connected to and you depend on to move through the seasons you are in, but that she isn't fond of friends only staying for a season, she prefers friendships with longevity.

  • This week on the Love Letters, Life, and Other Conversations Podcast Jane and Wendy use an email as their springboard for their conversation. The email contains a heartfelt message about maintaining a long-distance friendship that is deeply rooted, but requires attention and care all the same.

    They discuss the need for, and elements of maintenance for friendships, how we define and experience emotional intimacy, and the rules of engagement for hard conversations in order to have deeper, more meaningful relationships.


    Wendy’s Takeaways

    The opportunities we allow our friendships to grow and expand

    Jane’s Takeaways

    The use of the word emotional intimacy in relation to a friendship.That it was a gift that her friend shared she was hesitant to reach out because she was worried about being too demanding or needy, because it meant that it was okay to feel that way herself sometimes. The shared experience is comforting. Asking yourself before a hard conversation or when considering a situation ‘What assumptions am I making, and what can I do about that?’

    Jane’s Takeaway

    This exercise uncovers so much and opens us up to discover so much.Gratitude for writing so much in the year of 2020 with so many ideas and thoughts exchanged that opened a world of infinite possibilities.

  • This week on the Love Letters, Life and Other Conversations Podcast Jane shares a poem that she wrote as an 8 or 9-year-old girl about friendship. She and Wendy talk about what little Jane must have been thinking about when she wrote it, how even in their fifties they are still asking for the things they seek in others and in themselves, and how what is being asked may also be characteristics that we are trying to embody for ourselves.

    Wendy’s Takeaway

    Conversation is powerful Words are powerful and if we took a moment to write down what we want in a friend it would be interesting to see what characteristics we are looking for in a friend - and how many do we possess or are looking to have modeled for us so that we can grow into them.

    Jane’s Takeaway

    The words in my poem are my true authentic self, my raw self.

  • This week on the Love Letters, Life, and Other Conversations Podcast Jane and Wendy talk about a eulogy written about Jane by her friend. They discuss how one strives to live a life that has a positive impact on others and how this gift of words from a friend was a way of showing how that was true.

    Wendy’s Takeaway

    The discovery of ‘The Jane Factor’ and her choice to shift it from a backwards joke to one of positive admiration.

    Jane’s Takeaway

    That jolt of reading about yourself as though you are no longer here and what impact was left behind.

    What is a love letter?

    It is a letter, a text, a poem, a direct message, a drawing, a voice message, a watercolor, a recipe, a cup of tea, a smile, a home-baked meal delivered. It's anything that connects us and makes us feel all those messy emotions, that without life would be pretty beige.

  • This week on the Love Letters, Life, and Other Conversations Podcast Jane and Wendy talk about a quote used in Jane’s program ‘I Want More the Next 30 Years’. The quote is given to students at the start of week three and it is:

    “It takes only one event in life, then your whole life changes completely. That even it doesn’t find you. You find it by going out there and doing something, not by just sitting and doing nothing.” ~ De philosopher DJ Kyos

    They talk about;

    How a pivotal moment can truly change how you see yourself and the course of your lifeThe act of ‘doing’ the thing that you are putting off, or afraid of is the way to find the courage

    Wendy’s Takeaway

    Say Yes to yourself. Everything is there for you on the other side of that choice.

    Jane’s Takeaway

    She loves the thought that 'perfect is the enemy of good', and vows to live a life that is perfectly imperfect.
