Finding the Gifts

lee-kTuesdays, 9:30 am – 10 am

Chronic illness, financial setbacks, past physical and mental abuse, and a host of other struggles can take a toll on a person’s positive outlook. When faced with challenges in your life you can take solace in the fact the Lee Kaplanian is on your side.

Lee hosts, Finding the Gifts, each week on Alternative Talk 1150, Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Lee has herself struggled for over four decades with Rheumatoid Arthritis and was  a care-giver for her mother, who suffered from Dementia. Put on top of that 60 years of experiencing life’s ups and downs, and one could see how Lee, like so many others, might view themselves as a victim.

“For the past few years, I have been working on personal development because my victim mentality about RA wasn’t working.  I began to see there are more positive advantages to thinking healthy rather than thinking like a victim. I started looking at what gifts are in RA, and realized something positive had to come from all this negative stuff,” said Lee.

One of those positive things is now her weekly radio show that focuses on helping people make a paradigm shift in their thinking, whether they are dealing with a physical, mental, emotional, relationship or other personal struggle. According to Lee, it may be uncomfortable or it may take time for it to become apparent, but with a shift in perspective and a willingness to release the victim mentality, any listener can begin to see a difficult situation as a gift.

“It helps to talk to someone who understands and has lived with the situation or one similar – there is no need to explain because I get it,” said Lee, who asks listeners to call in each week for their chance to be heard and pointed down a path to healing.

Besides Lee, as host, listeners will hear her expert guests share their stories of gifts from interesting situations, as well as advice and humor. In short, Finding the Gifts becomes a two-way conversation where listeners can learn from the show and each other.

“It is important to see one is in a rut and make a decision to change their old way of thinking; just because one is in a situation, life isn’t over,” said Lee. “During my show there is no judgment or criticism. I use humor as a way to cope and look for the funny side of the situation; sometimes things pop in my head when I least expect it.”

Be sure to get your attitude adjustment every Tuesday from 9:30 a.m. – 10 a.m. during Finding the Gifts. For more information, log on to www.findingthegiftsshow.com
