Deep conversations about life, relationships, and recovery. In this personal storytelling podcast, licensed professional clinician, transformational speaker, and conversation starter, Lisa Lackey, shows you how to take the front seat in your life, to step out where you’ve been hesitant, and to move forward in being all that you and others have told you that you can’t be.

All you have to do is be willing to show up in your own life the best you can, and come on in to join the conversation.

When we leave ourselves by being enamored or preoccupied with distractions, we gradually leave ourselves. Before we know it, we just don’t feel like ourselves and we start to look externally to feel better. We may even find “temporary solutions” only to find out that we are treating symptoms, rather than cause.

An example may be being frustrated about something you haven’t dealt with, so you put it on a “shelf”, as if that’s the “solution” to the frustration. Putting it on the shelf, may temporarily bring relief. However, if the cause, perhaps procrastination due to fear, is not dealt with, the “squatter of procrastination” will not leave.


Have you ever had a squatter in your house?
