In this week’s episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Billy Lahr, the podcast host of the Mindful Midlife Crisis. After binging through his episodes, Billy and I connected through Instagram (can you believe it?) and here we are! Billy shares with us his inspiring journey leaving his 20-year teaching career to travel the world and teach mindfulness. I hope you enjoy this conversation where we explored the complexities and possibilities of life’s second half.
05:16 - Billy discusses his midlife pivot, the catalyst behind it, and how he's adapting to navigate uncertainty while reinventing himself.
14:35 - Reframing the concept of passion as a byproduct of following one's strengths and curiosities, Billy shares how this perspective aided him during his transition.
21:18 - Using the metaphor of stretching pizza dough, Billy illustrates a new perspective on comfort zones, advocating for expansion from within rather than simply stepping out of it.
24:25 - Billy introduces the idea of "10 roles" we hold in life and explains how this concept humanizes podcast guests and reveals more facets of their identities.
32:09 - We discuss the importance of maintaining fluid roles and seeking inspiration from others to broaden our life’s roles.
38:13 - Billy defines mindfulness and provides insights into how it can be practiced in all life moments, extending beyond meditation.
42:41 - We explore how mindfulness enables the creation of space between a trigger and a response by observing emotions and reactions.
48:21 - Billy highlights the transformative potential of harnessing the power of the 10 roles, enabling us to break free and embark on a journey of personal development.
