About Sandra Butler: Sandra is the author of several books, each designed to identify something unspoken and move those issues into the public conversation. Over the past three decades, Sandra has written dozens of articles, reviews, and essays that have appeared in a range of periodicals and anthologies. She has facilitated workshops for community activist social workers and psychologists on violence against women and has lectured on women’s issues nationally and internationally. She joins us today to talk about her latest book, The Kitchen Is Closed: And Other Benefits of Being Old. 

In this episode, Mike and Sandra discuss: 

  • The motivation behind Sandra’s latest book
  • Why it is important to listen to your inner voices
  • Defining love in its truest sense
  • The truth about keeping secrets

Key Takeaways: 

  • Your story may have the potential to spark conversations about important issues, so go ahead and let the world hear your story. Be the change you want to see in the world.
  • Listen to the voices in your head, but remember to silence the negative ones. Listening to and trusting your inner voice can help you make wise decisions and make significant changes in your life.
  • Love should satisfy both parties’ needs and desires. If a relationship no longer fulfills you, it may be time to move on.
  • Setting boundaries is fine, but keeping secrets may hurt you in the long run. 

“Your job is to leave the world better than you found it.” – Sandra Butler
