This is a clip from an interview I did on the Peacock Podcast where we talk about the voice of the SABOTEUR and how guys like Thomas Edison was able to deal with this “inner critic”. I end with playing a cover of the Paul Simon song “Bridge Over Troubled Water“.
Listen to the full band version of this song I recorded in 2004 on Spotify HERE.

A little chat with my son (Sylas Boesten) about lessons learned from losing his mama (Ingrid Boesten) to cancer and how to hold hope and loss in the same hand. I also share a story about one of the most beautiful things Ingrid did a couple of months before she died.

“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.” – Louise Erdrich
When you think about those wild little moments in your life that inspired you to make those big decisions, what was happening in your heart? And what led you to those moments? And when do you think the next one will happen?
I sing a song I wrote for my Ingrid (my late wife) for our 7 year anniversary called “Seven”. It was a major moment in our relationship that shifted us into having more hope with and for each other.

Here we get into the phrase “ON PAPER”… you know when everything looks perfect from the outside but when you peek behind the curtain of your heart and you get honest, things are different… maybe they’re a LOT different. How many people know your REAL life vs. your life ON PAPER.
If you need some support looking at your REAL life and want to make some changes, reach out for some life coaching HERE.
The song is a cover of “Where You’re At” by Allen Stone
Do you have the juice to deal with your fear? In the winter of 2021 I was interviewed by Nathan Peacock and we get into “the juice”… no, not roids. The juice is the fuel / motivation / vision to continue down the path… whatever that is. Could be a job / relationship / goal.
If you have lost your juice and need some help overcoming fear or starting to dream again, reach out to Nico for a coaching session here.
The song “Fields of Gold” performed by my childhood friend Ari Neufeld & I (Nico Boesten) on my back deck. This song is really meaningful as Ari performed this live at my wedding to my late wife in Holland in 1997.

Have you ever lost something or someone and wondered if you’d ever be able to work through it? How does this work? What is the gift of grief?
These are some of the questions I (Nico Boesten) ask Joshua Smith, a local (Kelowna, BC) singer songwriter and friend who just released an album written about his dad who passed last year. We play a live version of “Waiting on the Day” at the end.
