Surviving Abuse Podcast

I’m Mickie Zada and I lived in abuse…for 34 years…from age 19 until I was 53. I believe we create our realities, and I chose to stay in a damaging relationship for so long because I thought it was my Calling. I was wrong. I changed me. I am now an enthusiastic participant in Life. “The words ‘I am’ are potent words; be careful what you hitch them to. The thing you’re claiming has a way of reaching back and claiming you.” A.L. Kitselman I am a strong woman, a fabulous woman, over 60 years old. I am a Change-agent. I am an encourager. I am uniquely qualified to speak to living in abuse, getting out and surviving to the fullest extent. I know what it takes. I know the fear. I am a survivor. I am a coach. I am happy to have these “I Am” words to reach back and claim me! The actions I teach and share are those that I’ve learned in my Journey from choosing to live in abuse to choosing to create my authentic life; safe, sound, Real. I invite you to read through this web page. Think about who I Am. Read blogs, listen to some podcasts, watch live videos. Do we connect? I am open and exposed. Choose to reach out to me or not. What I know for sure is that I lived the life of abuse, and got out, and I’ve thrived, to serve as a beacon to other women. If you live in abuse, or you’ve recently escaped, it’s my Mission to support and encourage you to choose and live a healthy life. The materials, the tools, the support is here. It’s your responsibility to grab hold and change yourself, from the in-side out.

Attitude is the Master Key to life’s little locks.  Mickie shares a story that will stick with her for a long, long time…reminding that response to situations is our Choice.  After listening to this show, I bet you carry around a handful of shells, too.

Imagine the toothless grin of a baby…or the giggle of a two year old. If you have either image (or both) in your mind, I bet you’re smiling.  Some people go through life without smiling much…I’m not one of them and I hope you’re not choosing to be either!

What do carpenter ants have to do with thought process?  Listen and find out.  Is “average” OK?  Mickie’s Mom said it was so she didn’t strive to achieve more; Average was her limit.  What we think creates who we are…and it creates the quality of our lives.  Mickie explores how our Life Lessons, even when they don’t serve us well any longer, continue to affect how well we live our lives.

It’s amazing how everyday interactions affect our lives, long term.  A recent interaction caused Mickie to wonder about people’s attitudes toward life.  People with positive, joyful attitudes live in a healthy, safe world.  People who are angry, sad and frustrated live in a dark and gloomy world.  But it’s the same world.  We choose our attitude toward life and create our reality.  Here’s what happened…

I enjoy traveling to new places, seeing new things.  But my favorite exploration is in my mind…Sure taking vacations to unfamiliar places, near our homes or on the other side of the world, that’s fun.  Exploring people's definition of themselves, our beliefs about who we are, our personal warning system:  That’s my favorite exploration.
