Express Yourself! brings you a stimulating program based on a chapter from our award winning book Be the Star You Are! for Teens. (http://starstyleradio.net/Store.html)
Life is full of conflict and challenges, yet we humans are full of resilience. Whenever we find ourselves in trying times, we grow, we change, we acclimate, we adapt. Hosts Henna Hundal and Asya Gonzalez navigate the topic of adapting to change with Global Talk reporter, Ryan Sim who uses the current California drought as an example of adapting to different scenarios. Henna and Asya also interview author Sandy Goldsworthy with her books Aftermath and Aftershock, as she talks about how adaptation has registered in her writing and her personal life. Henna and Asya share an in-depth look at what it means to be ready and willing to accommodate new conflicts and challenges by offering concrete tips including:
- a. keep a gratitude journal
- b. pay attention to your life
- c. be a victor, not a victim
- d. choose positive attitudes and actions
- e. learn to relax and breathe
- f. set smart goals
Change is important, it teaches us new lessons in life. How can we grow if we don’t experience change? Strategies that allow us to adapt to change help us live happier, healthier lives. Give yourself the gift of adaptability.
Sandy Goldsworthy was born and raised in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. Her passion for putting pen to paper began when her high school English teacher inspired her to be more descriptive in her work. Ever since, Sandy has dabbled in creative writing, searching for that perfect shade of red.
Sandy’s first novel, Aftermath, was signed by Clean Teen Publishing, in 2014.
When not writing, Sandy enjoys traveling, cooking, reading, and hanging out with friends and family. She resides in southeastern Wisconsin with her husband, Mike, two children, Brittany and Kyle, and their English Mastiff, Miles. www.sandygoldsworthy.com
