Real Life out Loud with Rebecca RineDec 21, 2022
Be Who You Are This Christmas
I've realized I don't care about Christmas cookies. Making them does not bring me joy, and I'm okay with admitting that. In this episode, I read a few paragraphs from my book about being honest about who I am as a mom and embracing that I'm just, well, different. I end the podcast talking about how I love giving money to people who need it and making sure they feel seen, but how awkward it feels and how much I sweat when I do it. I like to keep it real with you, friend.
Let's Stop Wishing We Weren't So Busy
We're all so busy, and we're pretty good at complaining about that, right? In this episode, I talk about trying to change my mindset to remember one day this busyness will be gone, and I will know then that these days will one day be the good old days I miss.
I Take My Kids to Church to Confuse the Crap out of Them
I want to expose my kids to things that challenge them, and going to church is one way to do this. I'm not always 100% solid in my faith, so I am honest and real about that with them. Why not challenge their self-absorbed brains with big thinking that goes beyond them?
As always, the episode is a quick 10-minute chat about real life that gives you a nugget of thought to put in your back pocket for the week.
Confessions of a Jerkwad: I Don't Always Want to be a Wife and a Mom
It's okay to admit we need something more than being a wife and mom sometimes or a dad and husband. We have goals and when we tap into those goals, we're showing our kids and spouse what a strong, healthy adult looks like, and ain't nothin' selfish about that!
Aging is the Best and Worst Thing That Can Happen to Us
I read an excerpt from my book "What Waits Ahead is Way Better and Way Worse Than You Imagined" and chat about how great it is to age and care less what others think of me, but at the same time I get caught up in the fear of aging and the physical traits that comes with that. As always, I keep it real and give you something small to think about.
Don't Have Your Dream Job? Try Changing Your Outlook Until You Do
Not many of us have our dream job. Work is an honor and a privilege, and what a joy it is to not be hungry or naked, but we can be honest and say working is a major pain in the butt, right? The key lies in knowing no one else can do our job how we do it because no one else is us, whether we're digging ditches or operating on patients.
I Broke up with Social Media and Saved My Brain
Real Life out Loud gives you one thing to make your ordinary life--the best kind of life-- even better. This week's "one thing" is social media and how I dumped it.

Meditating is for Everyone...Seriously
You don't have to clear your mind to meditate. Nor do you have to be a patchouli-oil-wearing, breathy-voiced hippie. You can be a potty-mouthed real person who wants to have more peace in your life.
