Hi everyone! Oh my gosh it has been FOREVER since I’ve posted a blog and I’m SO sorry. I got really sick with this horrible cough and then some things started happening and life kind of got in the way. But, I have missed writing and all of you!
I have some really exciting news! I got a radio show out of Los Angeles, but you can listen in from anywhere in the world. I’m so excited. So, here’s the scoop…
I was being interviewed by the lovely, Dear Mrs. D on her radio show, Dates and Mates with Dear Mrs. D and the radio station owners were listening in and liked my story and now I’m going to be doing a show on their network, (It might have been a little longer process ) Universal Broadcast Network. It’s been so fantastic working with everyone over there. They’re totally professional and all super nice. It’s a great vibe. So, the show is going to be called Create Your Life with Jenna Edwards (because that is Scrapbook Rehab’s tagline and it’s a radio show so Scrapbook Rehab just wouldn’t be as effective.) It will air every Monday morning at 11AM PST and you can catch the show live on the Internet at UBNradio.com. If you can’t listen live, you can always listen to it as an archive file or podcast. Just go to my show page at UBNRadio.com/CreateYourLife. But, I do recommend that you listen live because you can chat in the chat room and join in the conversation!
The reason I’m the most excited about this opportunity is because I am going to get to chat with people who have overcome stuff. We all get stuck and we all have stuff we need to overcome. It can be big like PTSD and small(er) like the weather is bringing you down but we need to be able to get through that stuff if we want to create the life of our dreams. So, I want the show to be conversation with really good tips on how others have gotten through some tough points in their lives. I hope that the show will leave you inspired to get off your duff and just do it. Do the things that make you happy. As I like to say, “do whatever makes you happy as long as you are not hurting anyone” and I hope the show will energize you to think that way too and “create your life”
I am just so honored to have the opportunity to spread the message of taking charge and creating your life. Along with this opportunity is more accountability for me and that is something I’ve really needed lately. As I wrote about in earlier posts, the diet thing really threw me off my game and then I just kind of became depressed in general but now I’m back and committed to getting in shape, planning my wedding and building Scrapbook Rehab into the center of inspiration and sharing I’ve dreamed it would be (I know, queue the cheesy music). I just hope that by me sharing my fears and ruts and struggles and how I overcome them along with talking to others who have done the same will create a source of community where we can all help each other live life as happily as we possibly can. I know I can use as much inspiration as I can get and so part of me is doing this show for selfish reasons. I want to know how these people I admire so much, do it.
Bottom line, I really hope you will listen in, join in the conversation whenever possible and share with me how you do the marvelous things that you do as well.
Now, I hesitate to write the next lines because I don’t like to commit and then not follow through, but what I’m realizing lately is that we’re all only human and that as long as my heart is in the right place, if I mess up, it’s OK. I’m not performing brain surgery. So, with hesitation, I say that I hope this show creates a structure in which I will blog more and get back into my health and fitness routine. I’m telling you, the last time I did really messed with my mind and so writing this is so hard for me right now. But, I want to form a support group on myfitnesspal because I’m sure I’m not the only one psyching myself out right now and I’d love to hear how all of you are getting through it. I think that is going to be my goal for next week. So, I am committing to form a group at myfitnesspal and write all about it next week.
Please hold me accountable.
I appreciate you <3
