  1. Hi Stacey! This video really resonated with me, especially this week. In working with my life coach, I remembered that one of the things that drew me to my husband was his ability to make me want to be my best self every day. We both have lost sight of this over the years. She pointed out that in creating tension for me, he is a catalyst for my personal growth. And I realized that so many of the steps I've taken throughout my adult life and career were inspired by his love. Thank you so much for sharing this video with us, Stacy. And happy belated!

  2. Hi Stacey. I felt sad after watching this video, but not because of anything you said.

    I tend to be the one who is encouraging others and who would plunge straight ahead into ‘painting the owl’ on my own. However, my husband is the opposite (of your Paul) in that he tends to discourage me or be unsupportive when I want to try something new or do something I feel passionate about, because he doesn’t think being artistic or creative serves any purpose.

    When we met, I was this bubbly, fun, person with all the confidence in the world and over our 3 years together, this unsupportive behavior has just drained the life right out of me. Even though I have been there for him (and supported him) through retirement, selling his home, going to college to get his Bachelor’s Degree, etc., he basically refuses to do the same in return. (As if he will be ‘losing the battle’ if he does and as if only the things that he wants have importance or value.)

    A relationship shouldn’t be about giving up everything we are to please another person and yet it feels as if all the things about me that are beautiful (my light, my heart, my energy) have been completely overlooked and forgotten if not devalued completely.

    I want to get back to ‘painting all those owls’ like I used to, but my confidence in myself has withered and I need true encouragement from someone who believes in me and sees my worth (besides myself).

    I love that you are always alive and excited to share new things with your audience, so I look forward to hearing some uplifting thoughts!

    Thank you for stepping out of your comfort zone and into the ‘Owl Zone’. 🙂

  9. Hi Stacey I love your energy.
    Beside the obvious stepping out of your comfort zone to paint the owl, I'm taking away that your husband was very instructmental in cheerleading you on.
    I'm really trying to be my own cheerleader, however I feel a major lack of having that partner by my side. How can I create a partner that I can cherish and be cherished back? 10 years post divorce and a couple of wrong relationships has left me feeling alone. I'm very youthful and vivacious for 64 and yet I'm just not getting to that great relationship.
    I have a great family and friends, job and outside activities. It pales to having that special someone.
    Any suggestions? Thanks

  11. Love, Love, Love you so much that I even look in my SPAM folder for your messages! Weekly videos sound amazing! I’m not sure what to commit to next because I’m recovering from our family vacation camping. I don’t think I’ve ever camped for 5 days. I did step out of my comfort zone for that trip and a 10 mike bike ride with some of my husband’s family. It was way vulnerable and a challenge as these people are in way better shape. I’m still liking my wounds on that one, but glad I did it. And, I will be thinking of you and all the attendees during the retreat this year. It was so wonderful last year! Sending Lots of Love and Laughter! Nicole from PA.

    1. Love you Nicole!!!! I’m so proud for you that you stretched yourself for that experience! Remember your right hand/left hand tool Nicole, it sounds like that one might serve you with that extended family! We love you endlessly and wish we were seeing you in a few weeks at the Retreat too! Maybe next year!! Sending love!

  12. I loved the analogy of painting the owl to stepping out of your comfort zone to work on different things. As I am working on transforming my relationship with my husband, I realize that maybe I am not stepping out of my comfort zone enough as I should be. I am going to work on painting the Owls in making my relationship stronger. Thanks for giving me the ability to see things differently!

  13. I so needed to hear this… I am so guilty of painting the coffee mug and not the owl… I am being called out in every direction lately to paint the damn owl… THANK YOU for kicking my butt once again, Mrs. Martino!!!!!! XOXOXOXOXO Love you.
