Daena Smoller: I Dare You: To Live a Positive Life!
by Debbi Dachinger, Dare To Dream Radio Host, Wed. 11am PT www.healthylife.net
I recently interviewed Daena Smoller from the HealthyLife.net Radio Show Larry & Daena Do VEGAS. We had a brilliant conversation. I dare you to accept Daena's dare!
Debbi: What is the greatest lesson you’ve learned?
Daena: The greatest lesson I've ever learned has 3 parts, really. The first is that you truly DO need to 'put the oxygen mask on yourself first', before you can help anyone else because you can't really trust others to take care of you, even when you pay them to do so. The second is always pay attention to that intuitive voice inside. And the third is NEVER take a bath and leave something to cook in the toaster oven unattended (still sorry about that Mom & Dad!)
Debbi: What is something you are deeply grateful for?
Daena: I'm truly grateful for having had young, hip, well-educated, cultured and gracious parents who proved every day, how much they loved their children.
Debbi: What’s the most important thing you do to keep your life positive?
Daena: I'd have to say that trying to do some good for myself in thought, through food and exercise and deeds for both myself and others, helps to keep my life positive. And, knowing that I never lied, cheated or stole anything that belonged to someone else, doesn't hurt either!
Debbi: If you could DARE the listeners to do anything that will create positive change for them, what would you dare them to do today?
Daena: If I could DARE listeners to do something that could create a positive change for them, I would have to turn my attention back to my own #3... do your best to think a happy thought or two, be grateful every day for 'something', treat your body well and help someone else - even if it's as small an effort as picking up a piece of trash outside and disposing of it correctly. You never know who will see you perform such a deed and become inspired to do something 'good', too.
