Behind the Mist: A Podcast for Living Intentionally
In today's fast-paced and chaotic world, it's easy to get swept up by outside influences and forget what matters most. Join me, Clara Smith, on Behind the Mist as we cut through the chatter to explore how we can live more meaningfully and intentionally.
We elevate everyone when this episode discusses the interrelated topics of kindness, knowledge, and what it means to focus only on what we control. What does it mean to be kind in a society that rewards selfishness? I'll share my perspective that, at its core, kindness means recognizing that we are all interconnected when we make choices from a place of wisdom and compassion.
Seeking knowledge and cultivating understanding is an essential part of being kind, both to ourselves and others. We'll explore why making ability a priority allows us to make better choices and why, when we know better, we can do better. Finally, we'll talk about the serenity of focusing solely on what you can control. So much stress and suffering arise when we give away our power to outside influences we can't change, yet when we channel our energy into our continued learning and personal growth.
Remarkable things can happen. How do kindness, knowledge, and personal responsibility intersect to create a life well-lived? Tune in for a thought-provoking discussion.
Learning from Scratch
Here are some tips for learning from scratch and educating yourself to become a better version of yourself:
- Identify your interests and passions. What topics excite you and make you curious to learn more? Pursue those interests through books, online courses, podcasts, etc.
- Set goals for self-improvement. What skills do you want to develop or knowledge do you want to gain? Set specific, measurable goals, so you know what you're aiming for.
- Challenge yourself and move beyond your comfort zone. Seek new experiences, people, and ways of thinking that stretch your perspectives. Staying in a bubble limits growth.
- Question assumptions and be open to other viewpoints. Remain humble, and don't get stuck in rigid mindsets. Consider you may not have all the answers.
- Reflect on your progress periodically. What's working? What's not? Adjust your approach instead of giving up. Learning takes patience and self-awareness.
- Find a mentor or role model. Connect with someone further along the path that inspires you. Learn from their life lessons and use them as a sounding board.
- Make the time to learn every day. Even 15-30 minutes of reading, listening to a podcast, or watching an educational video makes a real difference over time.
The key is actively seeking out growth opportunities instead of staying stagnant. Be compassionate with yourself through the process. Learning and progress happen one step at a time.
Mastering The Art of Me
My new book, a look at what you can expect. Available now at Amazon.
Life is messy. The world is chaotic. With endless stimuli and distractions demanding our attention from the moment we wake up, it's no wonder many of us feel lost. We grasp for the familiar in jobs we dislike, expired relationships, and routines that numb our senses. The noise of the external world muffles our inner voice, obscuring our true passions, needs, and purpose.
In the quest for stability and sanity, many of us turn to self-help books, podcasts, and gurus promising fulfillment. We absorb the advice: Discover your calling, curate your social circle, practice mindfulness, and radiate positivity. This sounds wonderful, but is it achievable amidst the swirling chaos? Can we implement such noble principles when our day-to-day reality is so turbulent?

After a much-needed break, we're back and ready to pick up where we left off! Join your hosts as we restart the conversation around "Tolerance for All Lives" - a show promoting empathy, understanding, and acceptance among all people.
We took some time off to reflect on how we can best continue thoughtful and constructive dialogues around embracing diversity. Now we're returning with fresh ideas and energy to advocate for equality and share stories that unite us in our shared humanity.
In this reopened first episode, we'll discuss what we learned during our hiatus, why we feel it's urgent to resume this discussion now, and how we plan to promote tolerance in the future. We'll also learn the importance of open-mindedness, compassion, and forgiving past wrongs as we all work to build a more just society.
After months away, we're thrilled to be back and reignite the mission that matters so much to us and our loyal listeners. We hope you'll join us on this journey, where many voices unite to champion a spirit of understanding. We can't wait to reconnect!
