Welcome to your weekly Audio LoveGram.
Today’s audio is based on that moment pictured above — it was a sunset moment in Lisbon a little over a year ago when I was with my dear friend, Tamara. Some music was playing and I was moved to dance in the cobblestone streets.
That man in the photo (video link below!) was a stranger who jumped in to dance with me. He etched himself in my memory because of his openness, his joy, his unapologetic freedom of movement.
This audio LoveGram explores moments in our lives when we feel a heightened sense of aliveness — when we feel like we’re living in a way that is open, free, connected, and filled with vitality.
It’s about the beautiful rare moments when we feel like we’re in the middle of a cinematic moment!
The question is, what allows those moments to happen? How do we summon more of them?

This is important to talk about because these heightened moments in our lives can be like stepping stones. They can call us to remember that we are so much more than hamsters on a wheel, simply going round and round.
It isn’t news to you that I’m someone who knows what it’s like to be depressed or apathetic. I know those places of slogging through mud and feeling the ticktock of everyday life.
I know what it feels like to temporarily forget how to conjure up these moments of aliveness, connection, and vitality.
In this audio we talk about the work of deconstructing magical moments so that we can better set the stage for them.
What if there’s a way that we can create a little bit of a framework for ourselves. What if we can somehow put ourselves on the path of these kinds of memorable moments or cinematic moments?
What gives us the best chance of having more moments of feeling the zing of being alive?
That’s what we’re exploring today. I really hope you’ll listen.
I ask you some questions at the end of the audio. Hit reply to this email to tell me what arose for you, okay?
You are here for a reason.
I know you have a desire to feel more alive, to be more connected to people around you, and to feel the ZING of life more often.
I also know how hard that can be at times.
That’s why we do it together! That’s why we have these conversations together!
I want more for you. For all of us.
Thanks for being here and inspiring me!
Seek celebration — even in dark corners,
💖 P.S. I have a short snippet of that moment at sunset, dancing with a stranger on the cobblestone streets of Lisbon. You can watch it on YouTube, Facebook, or Instagram. If you do, make sure you comment to say hello — and maybe share a ZING moment of your own, okay?
