"That is that is so prevalent that we think it's normal. We think it's healthy I. My son had a T. shirt wants that said normal people scare me right and I don't consider myself to be the current normal and thank you very much so challenging. Those belief systems is really important. And to see that you know if it doesn't feel good right to challenge it and be hard on your belief systems and can you touch on. I know you've shared this example with us but about The mother the daughter and the grandmother with the rain. Yes Yeah I've borrowed it many to always a really good one. Yeah again. I have to thank the guides and the teachers that I have for that one too. There was a story about a mother and a daughter and a grandmother and they're preparing dinner and they're making a ham and so the grandma's sitting at the table and the mother and the daughter are working on the the Ham and the mother says okay chop off and end of each of the ham end off each ham and put it in the pot and the daughter says to the mother and this is the the younger generation typically starting to question and the daughter says to the mother she says. Why do we cut off the ends of the HAM and the mother says well? I have no idea. I don't know let's ask grandma so we say grandma. Why did we off the ends of the HAM and grandma says well because my pot was too small right and we do this and we don't challenge the believe this same rains exactly and we continue without challenging this stuff. Not Recognizing it doesn't serve us. It may no longer be necessary. It may not be appropriate for this this particular choice or experience because it worked for them. They're circumstance complete. I'm sure that it worked for them. Either I mean they had worked for grandma. But that's never gonNa Right. Yes absolutely so as we as we wrap up.

"So I'M GONNA go out there a little bit. I said to you that if you started to take care of yourself he was just going to automatically. I WANNA start coming home. So is this where I say I I like to downsize and it gets to be predictable and then what happens is we see a couple like yourself and the way that you're raising the children okay. So the challenges that you guys face. The children aren't gonNA face because they're being taught right from the get-go that beautiful balance and then going forward you guys have become wonderful. Models for people rounding harmony lyles. I think miss almost your entire clan clan. Oh you haven't you have no. I'm saying like ended family. Have this inner circle. Yes he had a picture of that. Yes yes but I was going to say That a really neat thing about all of this. It has really confirmed for me in there have been times. Obviously where you're like okay and back to focus and back to focus because we fall into old habits and it is a re a retraining your writing and and also earlier on you touched about once you hit rock bottom but when you do that it's an opportunity to smash it all down and re essentially rebuilt and to grow from there and we have to hit that point absolutely. What are you going to work with if you don't absolutely and so Something that I has really be been reaffirmed for me is an this is where you had said like. Brett will follow you. You you stay the course you will attack him. Yeah we want to let go in every aspect of our S of trying to go out and get it and this is one of the things you guys have started to recognize. We do this in my work itself. I don't promote I attract and when we understand the first law the universe is like attracts like when we changed the attraction point. There's lots of talk about this out there right now. When we changed the attraction point your experience then begins to immediately change in guys have experienced it can be dramatic and swift and what I was going to say about. That story is the focus so holding the focus. There were times when it was like okay. Is this working? I'm committed to it. Let it go. Focus A -delity focused disciplined. You have to faithful and disciplined to maintain that focus. And that's why I have to again say. I am so honored by the company. I keep because I will walk through the gates of Hell with you but I can't do it for you. Yes so this is where we have to recognize. You have to be disciplined yourself. You've got to want it. Yeah and if you want it it is your birthright will have it. It's really great that you just St- just said that and the conversation just went that way because I wanted to acknowledge for you. Who's listening right now? Whoever you are yes it's hard. It's extremely hard and I still have challenges everyday everyday. Welcome to the human race human race and it's so hard so what is your encouraging or your message of encouragement to that person. Listening right now who just has to start or feels that there's no end in sight and they're at such a low point there in the basement of all basements right now. But what do you say? How do you start? I would say begin at the beginning and that you can't climb a ladder from the top rung. I everything in this universe. Evolves stage-by-stage step-by-step level by level? And it does get easier. We don't WanNa maintain that you guys came to a retreat on salt spring and the t shirt that you got was simple as mock and heart as just faulk. Okay you said it all right so it is. It is very simple but it does get easier like the challenges that you guys are dealing with. Now you couldn't have dealt with before until you develop the tools again divine. Grace never takes you anywhere that it can't guide you and protect you so if you were in your deepest crisis point right now. It's beautiful place to begin and to start to turn in and when you do I guarantee you are quote unquote chance. I don't believe in chance or locker coincidence. They don't exist. You will find the support that you need because we are all so deeply rooted and we're not taught to see that we're not taught to understand it so as we grow and we've all I look at who I was as a as a child and who I've become an. Oh my heavens. That's that's quite a crater a spectrum of growth and it does get easier so we aren't giving anything that we can't handle the tools that you need are there but the challenges you know. I like to say divine. Grace is always transmitting. Always transmitting a lot of us. Believe that the creative sources outside of us or we believe that we are got an inside of us. It's not accesses inside of us but we are in it and so the universe is not able to disconnect. We can't disconnect so when we start to recognize that and tuning in and understanding that spirit communicates in feather. So you're going to have to turn down some of the drama. Even if you just find you know like I used to reverse time out. I went to the bathroom and lock the door. Okay Oh yeah for sure. I was a single mom raising them by myself. So yeah we do have to find those moments to just if you can just take a breath yet just begin at the beginning understand that everything is is it should be and that you are not alone. Just take that first breath take a step with courage and the tools will come. I promise and this is why I like to say I told you so because you know don't I get my. I told you so predictable you need to get you a Mug or an award or something and I told you so t shirt and it gives predictable once for relationship in my just my life. When I was at that that low point and knew I needed to make a change. I remember you saying begin at the beginning. Now I'm so goal oriented that I was focusing so much on happy. Happy and money awards status fame fortune etc. S- thinking about all that but I think I really needed to shift my focus and just take it day by day and just make the best decision that day. The best decision the next day and before you know what you had seven days straight of of of good progress of good decisions of not gonNA keep it up here out buyer out there when you need to bring it in here. Exactly we want to let go the concept of good and baton right and wrong and we also want to recognize that while you're doing all that work you're doing your daily dues with Fidelity Focus and discipline that the universe is also matching you and meeting you. We want to recognize that the universe responds to us. So don't underestimate what a small change can have in terms of impact. I think you've both experience. That absolutely and even touching The good and bad. I think we so focus on that Instead of it being like there's actually nothing wrong with chaos or drummer. Things that are happening around you. It's how you handle it. Yeah and the good and bad right and wrong create polarization so I suggest letting them go. Get rid of it. Just do your best to do your best. And you can't again at the beginning and University of take it from there especially the net. That's to me. I think that's a great place to leave off because this is such a heavy heavy heavy topic and conversation that even though I'd like to talk I think we both for five hours. Yeah you have. This is probably best to just end this chapter in this conversation here right now. Thank you for your time. Our hope is to keep you here and talk about a whole bunch of other things. If we can for other podcasts into it yeah my pleasure thank you for for doing this and sharing your great insight and wisdom and we just the door you we appreciate you. Thank you feelings mutual and everybody thank you very much for not only watching but listening to this is this is the keeping it. Kissel podcast. Please follow Cecilia.

"I just needed done but then you would say that. I don't want to explain correct. That's a better house was just over us. Oh I know under no circumstances. That's a common challenge something or even give it only to help. I want to ask. I just wanted to devise a question. Viewed as a challenge and not gaining understanding in perspective. It's all depends on how the question was presented. I believe to a degree as a teenager teenager. I would have posed a challenge in the way of snotty question but for over analyze so many things. Clench a child how to ask a question. It's not going to be snotty nosed and if you answer a child's question they will be satisfied in my opinion right. Do you find from your experience. Like with the kids answering their questions do they. Stop asking absolutely one hundred percent. No LONGER MOM. Mom Dad you take a moment you get down on their level you tell them what is expected of them. What we're going to do Doesn't mean they always do it The way you'd hoped or whatever but it seems to stop the Y. Y Y and it definitely seems to have stopped the whining on the topic of raising. Good kids yes in this day and age. Let me just preface. That good is subjective. Those different from good to somebody else. There's also a terminally in different ways to Peel an apple. Cut Up an apple so How someone does that There are a million different ways to do that. So so you believe that discipline consequence all of those actually have to do with the human with the kid so give different consequential for the individual based on their their needs absolutely. Yep Yeah I think I think The way you raise each child the heartbeat heartbeat. The core might be the same but the subtle differences are water tailored to that individual child now in the way that you grew up in your upbringing. Yeah I'm always fascinated as to why and how you're so good at this. You're add wet at raising humans. Your gentle irrational. You're extremely caring loving compassionate and you're passionate about the craft of being among. Why are you so good at that so good? I appreciate you saying all those things I don't. I don't know that I would necessarily feel that way. I mean all I can do is my very best. I'll say that till the end end of my days But for parenting for me I think when I think about this is okay. We're talking about how we just keep going serious serious serious and I don't know if we ever will go like light We'll get to the fun. I'm don't know but but what I was going to say when I think about parenting our kids I actually imagined myself as my own fourth child and I know that it's going to sound really really strange but I think I think about what I needed when I was a child right and when I think about that I think about the patients. The understanding The level of the things I didn't get and I almost see my inner child as child number four trailing along and I get to repair it myself I get to relive experiences. Might enter child gets to do all these wonderful things that we've Curated carved out and created for our children. I've never decorated gingerbread house in my life until this winter till this Christmas I have others million. There's a million things that I have never done and I'm doing for the first time in. My inner child is very pleased. Do you have goals for your kids? Happy just happy. That's it because I'm I am putting a lot more weight and emphasis unhappiness than I ever have especially with. Yes a world where people talk about mental health and all is very extreme issues. Yes my goal prior to having kids or even when meal o. Was born until I really dove down deep into how you approach things because I'm so impressed by and inspired by it right. My number one goal was ambition. You just want me. I remember that useful and I want them to be ambitious but you said that she was actually out of out of fear for laziness of course so but I think I think if we see someone as lazy sometimes that can be a judgment If somebody is living in a shack and they have a dog and they have two plates and their whole most homeless to some but to others would just be like a total hermit recluse flower child. Whatever it's like Y is that person considered lazy. They are happier than the hills. Yep whose businesses. That is your right if you're happy you're happy if you're not happy in that situation and the environment than something needs to change but if you're happy leave him alone. They found the secret to life happiness. Yeah my opinion. I don't know that's cease again. That's so profound and I think that's year opinion has changed. It has happiness now. Is the number one priority. Because I've seen so many families that have every material thing yeah jobs holidays vehicles wealth beyond belief. And if there's no happiness or heart yeah not home yet. I think we all put as a matter. Not We all but I think as a society. We can put unrealistic expectations. Yeah and really it comes down to. What do you want? What do you want when Brett Wilson and I did our Trip to Mexico building homes. Yes the happiness and contentment that The family one of the families. Like my my family's Breakfast Brett. As you know the homebuilding our family they lived in a Crown. Victoria car No TIRES YEAH. Just flat underground. Swear the DAD and the three kids they might lift and yet they were happy because they had enough to buy some food and it was better than how the parents grew up so they were happy that their kids when we built them. The House hadn't apparently simply whatever's more poor than living in a in a rundown crowned nineteen So that also changed things for me back in two thousand seventeen that if someone can be happy with what society says is nothing yet or below every bit of standard then that if they can be happy then we should focus a lot more of our time to actually be grateful and actually be happy with what we both what we have because we live very abundant life. Gratitude changes everything. Yeah so back to Aria calling your bluff. I'm sure people are wondering how she done that again. She had a shield your own often than me La. She had it going. I think a for a good couple weeks where I was just like I would say my my consequence and she would say here and I would freeze yup give it to me lay on me thick. Go ahead Mama. There was no resistance So definitely threw me for a loop But you know ultimately. It's like that I would put her in timeout and sometimes she would get emotional because it was just like literally calling my bluff. She's just so stinking smart that little girl but as of late consequences are back on the table As being not fun so things are things are back in order but it definitely through. Meal is a very Obedient child she. S and Aria is a tear all great kids. They're incredibly great kids but as their personalities Start to shine you start to see their different quirks and different ideas and Yeah it just made me think like maybe Arya will be one of those people who doesn't take things personally in his just like. Yeah sure Go from strength to how actually grow up so that if bullying comes her way or what have you in school. Heaven forbid just let it roll off and it's funny because People knowing our kids people who know them would probably think because meals like loud and out there and social and outgoing that she would be the one that's more bucky She's the one so for example. She's the one who would say. Can I have this cookie? Oh Mom can I have this cookie but can I have this cookie? Arias the one you turn around. And she's got her hand in the cookie jar and she's already three cookies deep the like she knows she's crowded sneaky and she's quiet and And then new catcher and she would giggle and think it's hysterical that like she got away with it. I although I mean as we wrap up this segment up I we call our kids loophole children especially me Lula. She's loophole baby. She just figured. I'm the loophole baby. Yeah we'll because you'll lay your boundary and she'll fig like she's the kid who you're like no you cannot have that green eminem. Because that's what's in her hand and she'd come back and she got one in her mouth. What did I say will? It's mom like she's that kid she's just well you're not wrong. Yeah like at that. Point d you celebrate their that intelligent more. Do you explain that. That's not what you meant. Yeah I don't know I don't know the answer to that. Help us out here. A part of me is like I appreciate the I do too. I do too so it's like I want. I joke often that I don't want to This is gonNA sound so silly but even if the kids are like playing with their food at the dinner table and some people. Don't play with your food. I go back and forth on the like what if it inspires are to be some kind of like incredible inventor and now I just crushed that never know anyways you wanted like there's a fine line between supporting and Raising them up to be the best that they can be at while not crushing their spirit and still laying boundaries. Well for everybody WHO's listening.

"Can everything triggered I and it just end? It's cold and it's minus thirty five and I got to put a car seat car seat. Best of you a timer too. I feel like it's every second weekend because I know they got to be tightened. They gotta be this and then the worst is when I feel. I did an amazing job. It's like a Rodeo who comes and then you come along like elise. Yeah I'm like Oh this is loose and you forgot to do this and forget to do that and then they like that but yeah not mean about it but of course I take it wrong and I'm so frustrated. That carseats is something that yeah just not my favorite favorite. Yeah I take over if I can but the truth I I. It's kind of interesting because in the airports I don't get weird looks but I feel a little weird that I'm looking after the kids. You go out minus fourteen car seat because you know it's going to be. Yeah it'll affect my day do it faster. Yeah but then I also think like I am a Nazi about car seats for sure but I my perspective on the car seats is two things. One is necessary and it's just like no other option. It has new happen no matter kids always say dad. It's tight it's tight and our motto is if it's tight it's changed and so there's that but then I also I my relationship with the car seat is I'm GonNa get emotional again. Never I look at a car seat and installing it. I think they're still little enough to fit in here If they were you know before we know it it's like I'm I'm GonNa Miss It. I know you're right. I put me La in In the booster seat The other day over Christmas you did what I didn't drive anywhere or when we were Ice Fishing Yeah.

Yeah you're right free long. They have to sit in that car seat in the booster seat before they're out of them. Sometimes I wish I could be in a bucket seat. A grownup bucket seat seat. Oh I could sit in one and someone pull the shades and someone feed me a couple of snacks so I could just lay back and snooze. What a bus bunk is for. Yeah but there are so many things that we do miss of course like we said before. It's not enough to wish that we had the old days back but anybody who's got ideas of the things that they miss now that their parents that they never thought they were going to miss like the like the coffee. Like going to the bathroom like putting on your makeup having controlled by only massive list of things and obviously to each their own. Yeah and I would be so curious to hear like what is it because it can be silly things like it can be things that you're like. Oh I never thought that and then I guess it's like you know to those of you listening who might not have children yet. It's not it's not a doom and gloom You know like changes come out. It's not like that. It's like enjoy that sleep been today go take a GMC NAP ANDROID and if you want to go out and booze and party all night of the spectrum but you nurse that today hangover and you enjoy it because Oh reaches. That's another thing anymore. I don't miss the hangover's whatsoever but I'll tell you when meal was first born Reo was first born and the oilers were in the playoffs and I was partying every night. That was that was rough on me. Morning came early partying to three or four and then being up at six theory your alcohol you don't get hangovers like normal people. Yeah they're backed. They are rough. You passed out a few times gets not good. I don't drink as much as I used to. Yeah totally I save them.

"Well Gum to keep in a different version. Every time I don't know maybe I thought that was like the lean beyond the welcome to keep in it. Kissel. Yeah it. Just like the tagline linkages. Yeah I like it like that idea. It's like yeah I like. Who's that girl it's just yeah exactly? Welcome back folks in microphone. Now I am welcome back. Everybody and I shouldn't say welcome back. It's not like maybe this could be someone's first podcast with us. Welcome welcome to keep an Kissel. I'm Brett Kissel. This is CECELIA Kissel and together. We are keeping Kissel. Please follow us on Social Media at Cecilia Kissel at breakfast and our instagram page. We launched this lifestyle brand called keeping it kissel. That were very very proud of your brainchild. Your Ideas C. C. And I think it's awesome. I love everything about it. Everything that you've got a scrooge closer to thank you table thank you so today. We're talking about What has changed for you since you become a dad Changed for me since becoming a month. Part of me says I can just say what a change for me. Everything into the podcast. Oh my gosh. There are so many examples of things that have changed that. I didn't think I'd be that guy. I didn't think that this would change or when one of my buddies who had a baby or someone else like. Oh this is the way that it is like. Yeah not going to happen for me when I think we were a little bit different because If I look back a lot of times new parents or people that aren't even parents Have A perspective of that won't be me Mellon the blank Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and. Bob Won't be me you know and I do believe that we may be approached. It a little bit differently that we're like I don't have a clue on exactly what I'm doing going to do my best. I don't know but we shall see. One of the great encounters was the pregnancy. So when you were pregnant with meal for the very first time that was so special for me to watch your body change and to know that because we watched whatever. That APP was on our phones and that was so great. Getting a chance to see that inside your cooking little Acorn acorn that comes on that got pregnant. The APP the bump right and it becomes an avocado avocado becomes. It was awkward for me when it was an animal. When they say it's like it's the size of a Chinchilla on my own. You WanNa know. There is a different happen. I don't recall the name. So that the bump just does fruits and vegetables But there is one that you can convert it to physical things so like there's even one that it does it for like dudes that like football but it'll do like Playstation gave me like couch controller or an iphone or those kinds of things which is funny too but all of the things that have changed for you and I I mean I'll just speak for myself is that I believe that a shadow of a much better person right in comparison to who I was pre kids to quayum as a kid my patients my tolerance my acceptance my level of love is just there being a dad and boundaries or very believe me I am. I get into some stories but I. I always thought that I was meant to be a country singer when I grow up and I'm happy that that's who I am and what I do of course but I realized actually I was meant to be a dad and that is the best title. You've never said the only yeah now to me anyways. That's well there you have it. I'm so happy that you dance. Something new thank you. We'll our children made you dad. But but yeah I my wrote was more. I can't remember the last time I've had a hot cup of coffee. Maybe that'll never happen again. That change or I can't remember the last time I've gone to the bathroom without an audience. Right knocking on the door and it's so funny. It's like the kids would just try to like they. Just miss you go away. It's like good Lord and I literally think that's fine. I'm just GonNa sneak away completely preoccupied utterly. I want to go to the bathroom and I'm GonNa sit on my phone. It's like s-h-i-t the Manila. Nobody's the minute you're gone. Site coast is clear. And it's not. Yeah Oh yeah. It's so wild to me like what is fascinating about. But I in there while we're boop and I don't get it speak for yourself. I just be asked me. Why am I kids to be there? Heart caller is that they want an audience to. It's like I'm going like they're fully capable of doing it on their own but they want an audience to like I don't know and we know we're band is like. I wish someone would cheer for me. Every time he leaves because we kind of went through a thing when potty training that we would sing happy body to you happy party make it an event potty training tyler always says how come nobody celebrates when. I do do. I was thinking about the other day. When you're talking about a cup of coffee. I believe a lot of other parents will talk about. This too is that I was on a flight and I did not want a cup of coffee. I just wanted some water. I didn't need a cup of coffee but I realized I haven't had a hot cup of coffee to myself in weeks to jump on the upper just ordered a cup of coffee and I just enjoyed it just. I felt like this. Little Squirrel finally found my nuts. And I'm just like Oh this is so great and I wish nobody it's almost. Oh I thought Ethan our producer. I almost dumpster coffee. All over your microphone. Sorry see. That's are excited. I've got a hot cup of coffee right now. So Anti Tracy. I remember when her kids were little matthew number that she would try to get a hot cup of coffee would never work so the pot of coffee would wind up going cold so she just poured over ice drink iced coffee. I have many times too. So that is yes. That is one of the things that has changed time. It's great Another thing that has changed big time for us is. We do not have control over the music in the vehicle right anymore. That's true but you're a little. You had away lovingly. Say this late on me. You're more of a pushover when it comes to boundaries so the kids can get away with things like for me are rule in the vehicle. Is We each get a turn right no matter what so that way? You have to tolerate my music if I have to tolerate Daniel Tiger's neighborhood. Yeah Yeah although songs stuck in my head and I did you see that mean that was like what are you thinking about? Or like what are you thinking about in Paw Patrol Power Patrol there on the double bonus is like a brain you. That's all that's happening as songwriter. Figure out how to write a song. A country song was like legit non kid lyrics have as catchy melody as patrol or Daniel Tiger or wiggles or something like that. That'd be an instant hit. Its powerful shit man when we because our kids just didn't watch TV for the first number of months wasn't really a part of of anything until until the tour formula and like what six seven eight months started watching the wiggles and vowed I would not watch the wiggles I would not even Just didn't want to sit down with her to watch it was there. I would just resisting resisting it. Because I knew that as a musician these songs would get in my head threat and all I think to myself as do the propeller do propeller during the propel round and round or mashed potato mashed potato tatum to each other anymore to everyone listening to this right now. That will leave this podcast with all of these songs in their head because so there has to be like a a a point where you can download this crap out of your mind but anti Brenda kids are are eight and she still remember those songs she said they still pop up in the middle ninth. So yeah I think we're doomed. I think we are doomed. Yeah I was reading the mother goose book to the girls the other the other day and some of these nursery rhymes are sad or weird or weird so creepy and like I. I can't give an example off the top of my head and maybe because again like we've got a community going and everything like that that we'll be doing something either there if it's a nursery rhyme day oregon. This is like some seventeen hundred okay. That's fair that that said that is one of the things as well that I would have thought that bedtime would have been a little bit of a different thing. I don't know what it was that I expected but reading stories to the kids. I thought that in this day and age that reading stories would be obsolete and not popular anymore ipads and stuff. Yes for our generations children yet when I was a kid and my parents were kids and their parents were kids and whatever reading bedtime stories has always been a thing right. I think I don't know I never. I never grew up being read too. So yeah I didn't I didn't so I don't know I just know that we tend to do what our kids we've And a book at bedtime is just like super exciting like they get to pick out a special book and we all sit together and read it so it's become part of the routine one of the things that has changed for me big time. It's just something. I ought to work on in general but I swear a lot. I really liked to swear right. I think that there's nothing better than a well-placed f word to truly show your excitement or show your disappointment. The F. Word is one of the best in the world because it's multi now and it's a it's everything it's everything it's a verb at lake. It's funny yeah I can't say even s-h-i-t because the kids are sponges. Gosh yes I. Did you see that clip on instagram? I sent you the other day of She's saying she saying anyways it was the F. Word Yeah but she was saying island laughed. But I'm like really a crazed as well you were saying I don't know if to laugh or look away or whatever but yeah it was a little girl just for some context and she was saying some statement like it was like look at him or something like about her little brother and it came out. Fc FCC CA look at that little effort or maybe she said. Are you kidding me? Whatever it was that kind of thing to me makes me laugh but I know we could never do with our kids so swearing something that I've had to really I've never let a good Curse word go to waste either. I definitely enjoy our kids have never sworn because to me though is only one time that they sworn Yeah Mumia Yeah Miller said She was doing something and she said. Oh Shit yeah and I don't. I'm not the kind of person to be like. What are you doing? Don't say that I'm very like Oh what does that mean to. You like interesting. And she said Oh which means I made a mistake and I'm like okay. That's definitely for me. Then I say that a lot and I never thought I did I say it under my breath mutter it so like I kinda thought. I didn't think anyway. So obviously. That's eliminated for my vocabulary. And it hasn't been said since because I've been linked very aware I. There was a story about me when I was a little kid. Where hanging out with GRANDPA BEAR. Who would say sob all the time or the Lord's name in vain stuff like that? Those those are my those are my glasses and I went so mad. Son in the ditch son in the dead son in the ditch very cute. Yeah I think it's cute kids where I just. I don't know if we can let ours. No I mean. Let them if they're going to..

Follow me on Instagram Brett Kissel and follow us at keeping it Kissel. Ooh Now onto the fun. We are getting part two of our podcast talking about our album now or never we discussed it means our like. I had something to do with it. Well that was the thing you really had such a giant park in really funny about like So Cecilia on your previous album. a lot of people say like that. Song was about you and I'm like they were all about me. Actually Oh yeah everything so I think I just don't forget it all started with a song. He's writing about if there's anything that has to do with love or love interest. Yeah in a song. It's it's you and some of the memories that we've I would hope so we'd have a much longer conversation if they were not about me. Funny how people think like who do you about guys. Yeah let me know. Well THE REAL STORY BEHIND. Cecelia's that every day of your life people would sing the Simon and Garfunkel Song. True so it was important for me to write you a Cecilia. Yeah interestingly enough. Is that if you watch on. Youtube are very first announcement video when we announced that we were having meal up or we are pregnant for the first time. Yes I had written a song. Early our relationship Celia yes That song is like twelve years old. Yeah so then rewrote or wrote another version of Cecilia with Brad rental from my valley. Yeah and that was the song was out on. The radio is so sweet we love them over and High Valley too. Yeah both guys and yeah especially their their better halves and lives mazing family so we talked about the first four songs on the record and a lot of behind the scenes information. We want to get back into that. We talked about drink about me. A few good stories. That's country music and young enough. We told everybody why we named the album. Now or never why you named the ever which is suggested which you but now it's she drives me crazy. What did you think the first time you heard that song honestly? I thought that Song's going to change our lives why I thought that too. Yeah that the verdict is out yet to be. Yeah well it certainly crazy. Because it's so pop dance idiom leaning yes For the country space but it feels good can be on a track with Dan. Shea like the Prince of Pop. I love that there are like no rules. I agree anywhere today. Like we're like Boston boxes and breaking the mold and doing whatever the hell we want and it feels good things have to be a certain way that leads gonNA drive me crazy. Why because I I don't know because I'm used to thinking kid mode and I'm like some was in Cobb and knocked that over and there's water everywhere or do that shit all the time it's true. She drives me crazy. I wrote that with Emily and Karen Kozlowski. Yeah so that day I told the girls I said I want to write an UPTEMPO pop song pop country song and then Emma Lee started going. Hey and I'm like that's so hooky so and so. I started going with Karen that we all started doing. It was cray and then like she drives me create. Are there just like that. That quick DABID THINK. The songwriting process is very fascinating. Very unique experienced very fascinating. I loved writing with both Both these incredible ladies because they bring so much to the table as far as creativity is concerned and then writing a song about a girl yet with a girl is very very good so that we say the right thing right. You can literally ask. Yeah this make you feel good. Yes and if I said this totally over this. Make you feel real SCUZZY Z. Sometimes when guys are writing songs and just because the language might make sense to them. It doesn't always translate to women the same way and so then you might lose that part of your female audience unintentionally of course but to have a female's perspective is always a good one once everybody is in the studio and I haven't really had a chance to tell you see how sometimes how it goes. But Karen is an incredible producers programming. And she's working on the track. Emily is working on kind of the form of the song. And refining it. Set The syllables match up and everything. So while they're doing that and we really have a roadmap. I went crazy on the second verse. crazy she Now what the hell of the words but I remember is. Let me tell you this. She's more than messing with my soul. Got that Maryland but lose control and No we don't have lurks in. Oh sorry we went on our last episode. I might one of this but I was so happy to throw in the line. She got that Marilyn Monroe because it's like she was such a big star. Yeah a larger than life. She's like SONA person and I see ads so I'm really nervous though about what for. She drives me excuse me for. She drives me crazy. Why 'cause it's so different from anything I've ever done? Yeah but different is good. It's good to step outside of your comfort zone and to step outside of the box. Yeah it's living in. Fear is not a good place to be right. Yep well that's a good quote right there. I've ever heard it. You're so wise. What is the Lynette? Same wisdom is knowledge applied. That's right yeah another great quote. She drives me. Crazy is a song. I'm also looking forward to the most. I think collectively anybody who's been part of this project because it really stretches the boundaries of country music is a giant risk. I mean country music. There's a Banjo in there okay. There's a Banjo in there. You know what it's great music and I'm an advocate for great music. And why why should you not be allowed to create or make something because it's not under that umbrella? There was made that rule. You Remember I. I went for dinner with my friends. Johnny and Jen in Calgary few nights ago who are on the run the Camp Swan Hills. That's right so living the dream productions. They are good friends with Zac Brown. So I know that this is a very namedrop. Your it's not intended to. He was talking about his current Album that he released and CAL keeps US doesn't like to be labeled with his Lonrho. Yeah he said. I'm ZAC Brown the Brown band. Just if people didn't have to pick and gender why do you have to pick genre right? Absolute Mir would do whatever you want salt. Do it feels good. And that's also why the records called now or never. Because I didn't have the confidence to do this on previous Rajic's or to stand up to sometimes the powers that be even though ever been everyone has been so supportive in what I do. Yeah but you still. Some challenges are a Steeply ingrained you are a people pleaser. My love and I think this is one of the first projects where you were like pleasing little old you and I think people are GonNa be pleasantly surprised and I think maybe you might be surprised by That you might be surprised by the excitement and How you're received accepted. It's exciting well as we kind of. Wrap up the. She drives me crazy conversation. I'm going to really things. Everyone knows that there is ya something we can't we can't tell you yet but. I wrote the bridge in the Song. That girl takes up all madam spend every dollar. I spend every dime. She stole my heart and took over my. It's local game over. She drowsy crazy that to me sounded very hip hop so as a hip hop star that. I had in mind to be a part of that song and we hope it all comes together together. It's all we can say but we all so are they hoping right. You mentioned this on a previous one that there'll be a Spanish edition Spanish remix four. I just ending. Why not I mean the more The more versions the better and the more fans that we could make another totally or Tories for sure. She drives me crazy. Destroys the box of what the capabilities of country music really are. Yeah because I think we truly elevated. I'm really excited about and we're excited to connect with music lovers. Yeah Yeah we talked a lot about our club days. Yeah that to me I would love nothing more than for that Song Be Played Tag guys downtown Toronto. Yeah we'll live in Vancouver yet I don't know all over the world all over the world please play. She drives me crazy. We're so excited about that song. Okay so rate after we wrote. She drives me crazy yet. That exact same damn day. We wrote Hummingbird right. Yes I remember you saying and emily. That's right which almost counter acts and balances and swings the pendulum from Super Pop. All the way back to bluegrass folk music country. It is very interesting. Yeah I think you guys just Needed to release some of your contrasting energy and get it out of your body now. There's an Gibson Guitar that Karen had in the studio that I played and I told her. I said we need to write a country song on this yep and so I started sharing some memories about catching hummingbird a little bit. Yeah I wanNA find the footage of what we're GONNA talk to Andy Tracy in Oakland Eric. Yeah if they can find because he had a. He had a video camera. One of you put on the shoulders. Massive suckers ninety nine. Yeah but you put the old vhs. Ed is that I think so. Did I play Hummingbird for you that day or did I? Yes you would have and what what did you think of it from First Time? And then now that you've heard the record version the real version and all the parts that tyler played on it and I remember thinking that it was really pretty And then it just obviously instantly makes me think of your grandparents and that that like I know. You've talked about getting a hummingbird tattoo. So maybe this is like a Tie you over until that happens to honor them in a way in the liner notes the hummingbird that we selected To be in here I think is like the perfect timing bird..

"Reminds me the cowboy boots. I got from grandma. Grandpa and I miss flat like so much. Grandpa BER BER country music. And I don't know why do I? It's it's weird to get emotional about your own own music but I was such a and you know So I think blue for the most part of two thousand nineteen and you're and country music pulled me through So many things so that verse in particular. I think a lot of people says to that it is everything I think. A lot of music is created and the purpose is to is to sometimes detach and checkout but country music. In my opinion the purpose of it is to make you feel something and to connect and that super powerful. That song without question is the one that I connect with the most on this album as one of my favorite Song said that I've that I've ever written so as I go down. The track listing. Trink ME is number one. A few good stories is number two and that's country. Music is number three. I wanted something that was lively to go right after that. Which is why young enough went right there. When we heard young enough for the first time it could have gone on the were that song album but when it comes to satisfying everybody in the you know in our in our process and in our team the record label managers every everybody young enough was not inconsiderate was in consideration for the we were that song album but it didn't have a high enough rating within the rating system that we have free to being Well yeah that sounds like four years old. I don't remember that Rusty. Pitch that to us and we'll weather's will weatherly wrote that with Jesse Alexander and who's the other song writer but We love that then. And that's why you and I kind of use the power of veto with the team to say none of know that song needs to go on the record this time around. Because we've loved it for four years. Jesse Alexander will weatherly and David Hodge Wrote that song and it is one of the biggest pieces of advice that I think in a song I can give to my listeners in we can give to the younger generation or young people like for me. It's not about advice for me. It's like No matter your age you're young enough Because he was trying to bill people Oh I'm too old for that or I'm too this for that. It's like when I listened to that Song I even picture myself at seventy and be like gold darn it. I'm still young enough like I'm young enough to do whatever the hell I want. However the Hell I want yeah you know me you know how much I I'm drawn to seniors getting stories and vibrant obsession. It's the vibrant party seniors. That like that just knocked me out that I I love. The most seniors is at lake. Has anyone made that sentence ever in the history of time out of the party scene? What is a party senior? Looked like a senior this radio. Debarati what are you talking about a senior citizen ready to party? Mr and Mrs Dawson. Yeah okay they would always the great parties okay. Yeah the emeralds played in the background and they had all all their friends grew up in the fifties and the sixties have this big old downs but they were never turned down a drink like me. Okay still has a drink. Yeah I guess Tonight Party. I think that club with the screen and the grinding I think of. I've never seen a senior citizen citizen at a club with the screen. I think about me mark playing cards with us at one thirty in the morning while using your definition of party has changed but I can get on. Yes so okay so you WanNa see a senior this in in a club grinding. Now do you though dig it back so young enough. We talked a lot about young enough because it was really An emphasis song or song. We have a lot of emphasis on for the title of the record. And I mean traditionally I think often What had happened for you is that we were taking titled Titled Tracks Essentially so using the track at our favorite songs as the title for the album. So this is the first time. We're Kinda doing something different but we are. We're really excited to put all of our eggs in this basket. So all in all young enough and as he kind of. We've got to do two parts with this. I didn't think that we were going to but this is actually been so much fun. I knew. Of course I know everything. So young enough. We're going to end side a of the record way more to say about the album. Then you thought so. We're going to split this up. So thank you very much for listening to or keeping the KISSEL podcast when we're talking about the record now or never you heard part one her why we call it what we called it.

"Stop crying and we have videos and I'll have to see if I can pull them up because her sitting in her car seat in her high chair down and she would be happy and she would hear that song and her whole body would just start like going so for Leo. He would be crying in the car seat and then the girls would say mom dad. Oh play play Leo Song and this will come on in Lille with stop immediately and it has gotten to the point where if it was happening Mula will sing it for him now. Yeah so if we're out walking the most she decided when one of your little kids take care. Takes Care of the other little kit like that? Mothering instinct that the girls have for Leo nurturing because boys are boys Do that as well. it's just the love care and attention that goes into and some humans are in children are just more nurturing than others and it is beautiful to watch so for the last twenty five minutes. Tari about how we named the record cece here young enough and then what came over you in that moment because I've never seen you. That inspired that sure and it inspired me when you had just dropped in and we're listening to the song and so say the lyric so all I know is that it's now or never and it felt in young enough. Yeah it felt It just felt like the universe was saying this is what it needs to be and it's crazy because I looked at UNICEF said yes now or never needs to be the title of this record just sat there and I thought now or Never Brett this is now or never we have given everything we we've given everything we have to this and we believe in this music enough to put every song on this album. It's now or never agree. And the universe spoke to us in the most incredible way after we said that now or never is exactly what this album to be. I would say at least four or five times on that trip I was. I flipped through Pensacola Beach Florida. Why picked up a newspaper at the breakfast place. Yeah I don't know why but it's like the mayor of Pensacola Beach says it's now or never. That was the quote on the front page. Yeah and do you remember? We were in Toronto. We are having in there's graffiti. Oliver waited photos for them for ya. That's true the most beautiful gridlock deriving to the studio and it was beautiful. And I bet you if you go back and try to find it. We'll we would never find it and on the side of a building. It was painted beautifully in the most beautiful graffiti art. And that said in the biggest letters now or never so. If that's not the universe telling us this is exactly what we need to do and exactly what we need to be doing but cannot believe that that actually happened and now every time I see it it's in a zone or a a head space that I'm in where I actually need to see that where I'm feeling discouraged about the record. I'm feeling discourage that. Maybe we'll because you're you get invested into this you get down on yourself. I mean it's I think with anything when you start to give pieces of yourself you're so vulnerable And everyone knows that it's it can be received different ways so this is also for Youtube as it is obviously for for podcasts. So if you're listening to this and you haven't seen US online obviously. Please follow us on our instagram pages. Cecilia Kissel Brett Castle. And keeping it Kissel We're talking about our album now or never right now and We also filmed and posted to our Youtube Channel So that you can watch this so you can watch us an action can you? One of the album's might my jacket too tight skinny but if I like reach so I'm going to get into a little bit. Some of the really cool things about it. Artwork Connor Shuffler worked with us on this record and he came to your vision right immediately. Cancel now that we're actually working so much harder than we've ever worked but it's a lot smarter because we've got three kids and we're the glow career keeping it. Kissel the lifestyle brand all of this shit really and so when Connor Cantu all of this stuff all of this incredible stuff When corner came to the photo session with Jess who's taking photos for us in that process. By the way I want you to be. If you see the photo I don't WanNa look through one thousand frickin photos and try to figure out what it's going to be. I want to look at the counter and be like. That's the shot and I wanted to this so we edited as we went which was amazing. Nfl This shot guys that. Can you see this on the on the camera? I thought you guys all worked really well together. Does it need to be out of so. Of course this is like a bit of a fake smile and shit but I really like it. I think I think I said something really funny to you. You probably did so this jacket. What's cool about. It is Murphy who are really good friends in Toronto. She said that this was her. Dad's Jack from the seventies so wild and so it's kind of an Ode to him as well when he loved country music. I love that chose my three tattoos. Yeah for my kids. Which epic fail in the were that song album? I already had two kids but I did the photo shoot before I got the Tattoo for Aria. Forgive you I man I hope should. That's on the inside the back of the record now or never. That's my handwriting here. Brett Kissel Here's only eight songs but dynamite comes in small packages and I'm really proud of these tracks. We wanted less content but more meaningful content so that way every New Year's Day for the next three years. I'M GONNA put out a new record and then Aria an me. Leather favorite colors are green and yellow. So I wanted green and yellow on cure and we love the beach and yeah we do in. This reminds me so much of Tinkerbell. Say that every time in the girls I love Tinkerbell so you open it up and it reads for my children meal O. Ara and Leo so so I dedicate this get dedicated this record And then on the INS are on the inside page. There's a little wiener dog. Of course there is. Can't forget Charlie the artwork on this album just like actually kills me like I'm obsessed with it I think you were. Oh Yeah of course. Are you going to say that? Are you going to let people just like go buy the album? You have to buy the physical record because I have one of my favorite quotes of all time on L. side because this is like one of my favorite things about my favorite. Tv show no but about your actual. I'm literally going to like anybody who picks up the record and I signed it for them in in the merchant line or whatever on her tours. I'M GONNA open up and be like make sure you look at page number. One getting sore. Thank you so great but the artwork. I'm really happy with how it all came to be so trink about me. A few good stories I have in the background a letter that we that we got from from Johnny Cash. And so that's there. A lot of my favorite stories actually told around the fire so we've got a fire in the background. I was so excited to explain this to Celia when we got the artwork back. I've never been more proud. That's Country Music has actually the barn on our out. Around and my GRANDPA's nineteen seventy Chevy. There which is a photo of connor my Banjo player and Guitar Player. Playing Banjo from the drink. Cuss fish photo shoot. Where up top. Oh Yeah I see it now And then young enough young enough in the background is a photo of me on stage at the Big Valley Jamboree With the only artist to ever get an encore in the history of the Big Valley Jamboree in that time slot crap so that was an incredible show. I was there for that. I'm so thankful that you weren't gonNA come really wasn't an issue we will. You found it sitter. That's why it's time to risk it. All it's time to elevate the game it's make or break it's do or die. It's now or never next page. She drives me crazy which is super colorful. If you haven't heard that song that is so pop. Edm dance leaning for country music. Wild that brings me back to Vegas you and me in Vegas for first time. Oh it's such a good song hummingbird yet Really love how the artwork turned out. I love humming birds so to sort of my grandparents. I'm not him. I'm not her featuring Christina. Taylor you've not met Christina yet have you? I don't think so Love the song but anyway Really really great duet partner and then a photo of from Lake Louise. We took that on our Cama coffee with her. That was like your power veto. That was the song that you needed to go on the record that one and young right. Yeah yeah whatever you guys will have to let me know what you think. But that was. I was shocked when those two songs weren't like at the top of the list and So something that you do as a spouse and I shouldn't say as a spouse because maybe not every artist is like this However we're going to get in the way of so many. I know sorry if I'm relationships. Oliver Buddies and country music who whose wife zone have a say but works in our relationship will works for has worked for us is no matter what. Cici gets a veto it so if Nobody believes in the song. But I believe in the song This time I got to but At minimum I get one song and the guys started my music. Yes I love everything. Yeah but I think sometimes when you are the artists in your so attached to the music. It's hard to detach and if your goal is to Grow Your Music Empire then You just want the best for. It's not about being personal or biased. It's about I just want the best and you've never used this power of veto in this way but I believe that there was ever a song that you just didn't like it wouldn't go on record but you've got to hold you. Do I say it's happened before and it's like what's on. I can earn allowed to say that. But I trust you too. So if there's songs that you are passionate about and that maybe aren't my favorite I've noticed often that those are the songs you perform the most passionately in connect with your audience when you're bringing them live. We'll look at a few good stories when you heard the demo. You weren't one. It wasn't until I I didn't jake blame that for a minute so Often when songs are being pitched to Brenton what is the Pitch Song Mean There's a song writer who wrote a song and they wanted out there and so the pitch them to yours to the or the artists team. Yeah and then it gets back to the artists and so you hear it with the songwriters vocals on it or how they were hired hired singer and how they would put it together. my struggle. When it comes to demos is that I struggle I struggle with what it would be like if it was brought on it right so then it's like and to me when I'm hearing these demos for the first time I know sometimes if I'm going to do the second verse in the I I I I in of course I'm GONNA put a solo over here and this is how I would say. Aw they didn't go up on that last night and of course I would definitely go up and went. People might not know that you have the freedom to do whatever the hell you run with it. Yeah and and I've taken a page kind of out of out of George Strait Garth Brooks Book now towards only started to write songs later on in his career. He wrote it at the very beginning but at the end of his career in the last few albums he's written more but of the sixty number one which George Strait has written or has recorded is written none of them. Maybe just one of them in here for a long time. I'm here for a good two artists. Make money so through touring and through pertinence an merchandise and stuff like that but the songwriter gets the money from the royalties so a few good stories was pitched to me. And I remember hearing this because it's written by Redican 's it's Thomas. Rats Dad Redskins is written huge hits for Luke Bryan F- gl Blake Shelton Ben. Hey slip also wrote this song with Chris Stevens..

"cecilia kissel" Discussed on Keeping It Kissel

"Hello and welcome. I'm Linda Linda. Here's another version of truth talk. I'm here today with three of my favorite people. I'm here with Mrs Cecilia. Kissel Mr Brett Kissel and Mr Graham mortal welcome. Thank you for having us. Thank you spread here via facetime. So thank you very much Lynette. It's good to be with you again. Lynette Graham here so we're here today to talk about that really hot topic right now. The Corona pandemic and the three of us have had some conversations really recently about this topic and thought that it would be really really powerful if we could bring a message for that might help people to see things from a different perspective to help. People see them from the perspective that we're experiencing because I think you guys agree that you're watching things happened in the world around you. That don't really make sense from your perspective. I Know Cecilia. You and I were talking this morning about the We'll start on the lighter side of this. We were talking about the toilet paper and paper roller to toilet. Roll kitchen role thing that's been going on and this is global. It's like off the shelves. So what did you discover when you did you research? Why are people doing this crazy thing? After talking to a lot of people there's a large group obviously a worldwide that believe that our toilet papers made in China and because there is a massive shutdown. I guess of just everything for everybody. Everything that happened to over there. They ended up closing a massive toilet. Paper Manufacturing Site and so everybody over here decided that that's where our toilet paper is made which is not true. It's made in the US if you live in the US. It's made in Canada. If you live in Canada I think one of the largest toilet paper Factories is in British Columbia in Canada. So the whole thing to me doesn't make any sense whatsoever in fact at this fundraiser that we did on the weekend or last week we had a rule of toilet paper and auctioned off for. I mean it's all a joke kind of thing but it's carried but for charity for literally sixteen hundred dollars. It just goes to show how crazy people are getting about. Something that is so far fetched. I don't get why this is a big deal but it is a big deal it essentially as a rumor. It's a rumor and we're eating it up like humanity is really gathered around something like this and they've just made it a thing so what we're what we're talking about. Here is irrational fear and on previous podcasts. We've done we've talked about rational and irrational fear. We'll just sum it up really quickly here. Rational fear is something. That's actually coming from the fight or flight system. That's GONNA protect you so say for example You know you're near the edge of a cliff. I view this one many times. You know the edge of a cliff and near about fall off your feeling that fear. It's rising up the minute you back away from the cliff. The fear dissipates. Irrational fear doesn't do this. Irrational fear sits there like a fungus in the dark and it grows and it festers and it isn't based on anything. Rational may not even be based on anything real just like the toilet paper and the so on and so forth. I heard that it was because they said that the factories would have to start manufacturing Masks instead of toilet paper and there was going to be a world shortage and then grams hypothesis. One of our podcast was that it was I just I don't know if I want to tell that one again. Well I heard it. I thought it was hilarious. Listened to the podcast people because it was awesome so it just sent my mind in that on that tangent which is what we got to recognize about us. Humans is that were were extremely powerful creators and that also means that were highly successful and things can be easily planted so we wanNA start to filter for ourselves whether what we're putting our attention upon is irrational fear in which case take action and it will dissipate or if it's an irrational fear in which case it's renting space in your head for free and it's not going to be producing anything positive so we're we're living with the level of fear every day most of us that we take we take in our stride. It's when something like this comes into get so hyped up that it really gets out of focus so I'd like to encourage you guys invite you guys to share what your experiences have been in terms of seeing the irrational and what was your perspective when you saw the irrational. How would you spin that? We need to find the positive side. Let's start with. Don't waste a good crisis. So what have you guys noticed I literally said debris today I understand that For Not for everyone. It's the same People are out in the world and you know they are faced with it Had ahead a little bit more but for me. Personally I said what's IT GONNA change like this quarantine okay. So I'm at home with my kids every single day What does that change like? I'm quarantined as it is with three kids. We don't get out much and You know that's been the same way for the last four years so to me. You know I don't I don't see it. We get to spend time together now with Brett and we get to see each other every day and I feel like it's been extremely positive. Actually that all of these social events are stepping up taking precautions and Being a massive example to society to just be smart about this when our children get sick when our children get sick and they get a cold. You don't send them to school. You keep them home right through and I agree with you. It is from different perspective points. What's been your experience brought for me. I truly believe that I've been I've been hit by this hard Mentally and then also physically because you know obviously as a musician traveling so much you know. The airports are shut down. Flights are being canceled. Okay I have to shift my perspective so I'm going to explain everything that I've went through over the last couple of days. And maybe how I got around it also with the conversation with you Lynette. But most importantly hears that flights were cancelled events or cancelled and when events were postponed or canceled. That's the only way that I get paid. And it's the ripple effect here so the ripple effect of mean being able to go out and do what I need to do. It's not that worried about. Maybe the fans don't get the opportunity to come and see a show or watching award show or watch hockey. It's the ripple effect that this is causing four. My Bet did my crew and their families who relying on because independent contractors on doing the job and getting paid then. It's you know it's not really affecting the hockey players that much but it's affecting all of the staff that work at the arenas that are doing part time or full time and now the arena is shut down for the we don't know for how long so it's very difficult to not live in fear because these things are happening however what. I'm hoping for and what I truly believe is that our government in place here in Canada's wells in the United States. Everybody is doing the right thing to slow down the spread of this disease. I'm personally not afraid of contracting or contacting Corona virus for me. It's the fallout from it which I would really hope that in a conversation with not only Cecilia. But you Graham as well as you Lynette is. How do you manage the fallout from it? And how do you understand your perspective or change your perspective when you can see things in real time being affected? Yeah that's a really big one And as I said you know everybody is experiencing this from a different perspective point so I think the first thing we wanna do is respect that. It's impacting different. People in different ways so for example graven. I living on the edge of the ocean here. It's pretty quiet in this territory you've been living in the middle of it. It doesn't affect Cecilie because she stays home with children so again we don't minimize anybody else's experience respect is the first step. Okay correct the second step. I think is to start to choose for ourselves how much we're gonNA make this mean now. Certain things happen in life and I don't know if you guys can recall time. I think you both can actually all of you Recall times when something happened. You made a massive event about it. You drained your whole internal system freaked out and then found out that none of it was true or didn't go that way or you'd completely assumed in presumed so we're all on the same page. We've had those kinds of situations. Yes Okay and how much misery did we put ourselves through while we were assuming and presuming and project into our future? Okay how much? How much did we suffer needlessly? So if we start to look at how much we're going to make this mean. What have we decided we're going to do with this. We have to accept the circumstances acceptance. I think is the second step that we WANNA look at respect and acceptance accepting that. This is what it is and I can attach the amount of emotional energy to this that I need to that. I want to but bearing in mind that how I feel about it. Emotionally is not actually going to make it any better it. It can actually really do one of two things if you feel good about it which is in these circumstances going to be pretty tough okay. It's not going to have the same impact as if you go into fear about it. If we decide to make this mean a great deal and go into fear about it then our whole frequency the whole being that we are and everything around us starts to crash with it does make sense for you guys absolutely. Yes it does so. We're looking at respect. Everybody's having a different experience we're looking at accepting what's happening we're looking at. What value am I gonNA give this? Okay this isn't easy. Nobody promised us a Rose Garden here coming into being a human being is is what I would call a hero's call. This is not an easy journey at times and I think that the next thing we want to look at is our new focus. What do we want to make this mean? And where are we going to decide to go from here? Are we gonNA pull together act with respect act with acceptance pull up our bootstraps and move forward or are we going to go deeper into this? Are we going to spread the message of fear? Are we going to make it mean something that we don't know that it means at all bread? I hear what you're saying about this being like a total like flipping of the table of your life like your livelihood and what's going on for you and everything being cancelled. I hear you on that. That's not what my personal life experiences for me right now but I can see where this is your bread and butter this you make money. That's how you engage with people in your fans and having all that changed so quickly I can only imagine what that'd be like for you. What came to mind was a story of the company you know that. Make the Swiss army knives. Yeah basically what happened? After nine. Eleven people couldn't carry these pocket knives on the plane anymore and so their company was going in the toilet so they brought together and they said we're GonNa make this mean what are we going to. What are we going to do about this? And what I thought was so inspiring. Was they say we need to branch out we need to? We need to think of new ways of approaching our business our company or brand and they created all these new products and now they have bags and luggage is in all these different things. They came out of a crisis that came out of this horrible thing. Our business is collapsing so I thought that was a really interesting story to kind of talk about and I'm not saying that you know that that's exactly what you need to do. I'm just saying I really taking a new media. You're going with this and even want to add that. Swiss army is typically a really good product. So something really good came out of it actually. I agree with what you're saying and what I'm hearing is. What are we going to do with this crisis? Are we going to waste this crisis? Or we're GONNA make something out of it and rise up out of it so you know for example Brett. You're saying it's been your experience where you don't get to be home with children very much. I noticed is small. But we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA BUILD FROM HERE. You don't get to be home with the children very much. Well now you do get to be home with the children. So that's the first thing and then what can come from there and what can come from there and the resources that we can start using in terms of building instead of tearing down if everybody on your own way in their own story. Looks at how they can build up so for example? This is a time when contacts can be made in other ways. This is where we have to essentially bottom line. Look for the silver lining everywhere. We can no matter how tough that might be and for some of us. That's going to be really really big. It is not going to be easy and I don't want to minimize that for anybody again. You know respect for each person's perspective and experience is essential but finding the silver lining lick swissarmy. Did it's a very good example and I can't help but think myself even for that example like for our personal band. I can't speak for the rest of the world but for US personally. I can't help but be extremely great folded. This is actually the slowest year we've ever had Because our our focused shifting to America and we're slowly transitioning to Want Dot to be where we're putting all of our energy so I'm thinking what if this had been a year where we were actually so busy and now they've you know they're prepared for this year for a slower year it actually that that seems divine to me that they're in a position where they were already prepared for a slower year. It's been my experience many many times. Two things cannot coexist in the same space in the same time. And you guys have all been working with me for a while now so you know the the way..

"cecilia kissel" Discussed on Keeping It Kissel

"You hear it all the time when celebrities are ending their lives essentially taking their own lives. That is because of their perspective. Their state where they're in Feet feeling helpless. That's why you see some of the poorest people in countries in the world in some of the happiest states because they're doing their Daily News essentially which is Counting their blessings which is being thankful being grateful. taking the time to live in a state of gratitude which is actually life-changing it changes every part of of every perspective. But I think like I think we're here to tell you that it doesn't matter where you are in your life if you're down and you're struggling and you're having a hard time that's okay absolutely and don't don't matter what is your feeling. Don't judge yourself even exactly. That's one of the hardest. Things is like we think judgment is horrible across the board but we do is really the hardest on ourselves. Yeah we judge ourselves the harshest on if we were to go with a few bullet points. Cecilia of what two thousand in one thousand nine hundred was for us in some of the big things. So you've talked about self care you've talked about self love where there little things like for me. Some of the little things that I I I learned and and did was like I am adopting moving forth because twenty ninety no wasn't good at this Like a dollar saved is a dollar earned like I am going to learn to save better. No spending yeah be very conscious with my Spanish. That was one of the big things that I cast on. Its own like I did not this year but I'm in the back quarter of the year. I feel as a lot more conscious with that. So that would be a quick bullet point like you said it could be a podcast anything. Come to mind for you The biggest thing of adopted this areas no judgments no opinions no expectations And that is coined by a friend of ours. Our our mentor she She calls them no jobs and I have embodied that to my core. We can obviously dive into that another time because every one of those but that has changed my life on podcast absolutely. It's going to happen. It is just I agree. Yeah so no. Jo-jobs was was very important judgments opinions. Our expectations has changed my life. Another thing that I I'll just say I regret over. Twenty nine thousand. I'm will not allow to have happen. Moving forward so it's definitely a lesson learned is I put off certain things As in sorry I put off seeing certain members of my family or certain friends. So because don't worry I've got this blocked on the calendar ultimate next month okay. It's not a big deal. You know what when I'm in the vehicle make that call then. Something always came up. Oh nothing would ever go. According to plan I wasn't going to go see for example my grandparents. Yeah it was knocker. Go see them in June. Because I knew I had a lot of time in July but I just said screw it. I'm going to Gordon June spin these days to which I did and I'm so glad I did because July got filled up and I told them to worry. I'll see you in July. Never Happen to where I'll see in August never happened so for me. Moving forward is if I've got it in my mind to make that call to that person. I really really wanted to being more intentional. Which I do feel like that is our goal this year. Having a year of intention everything we do is like with intention The the other one other thing I would probably add to the list is Geez just totally left my brain where there any fun things this year like fun bullet points of lessons. John Bullet points that's a whole nother could be one by itself age. Yeah I think I would be too many I any. You've probably seen this. I've slept less this year so I could spend more time with the kids. Yeah I flight home the last flight out and I just truly believe that because there's twenty four hours in the day I can sleep another time. I just don't WANNA miss those moments meal Aria and that was another big thing for me except just trying to you know. Get back into our business. Yeah Yeah but for anybody out there who's reflecting on the year that you just had in the year that's coming up everybody's been talking about twenty twenty and everything like that. It's the new decade. There's no time like the president. Say you fall off the wagon and you and you go revert back to maybe some of her old habits that you weren't necessarily pleased with don't judge yourself. Don't have any unrealistic expectations about the new year. Just work towards it a one step at a time. Yeah one day at a time. Yeah and if you do fall off the wagon give yourself some grace just you know create a little space for yourself what we want to do with our platform with this podcast with the blogging that Ucla. Oh with the website and everything that we're building is to develop a community that's our mission statement and our big auto or kick tribe the little young. That's right or kick tribe is that of course will kick you if I said it or you're such a weird again found so cute. We are a lifestyle brand that focuses on celebrating in supporting family equality and unity. Yeah that is without question the most important thing and like way of life for us so we hope that your twenty nine hundred eighteen. You have some great things drawn and as you march forward everyday if you're listening to this after this podcast has been out for a long time or you're hearing this for the very first time right now. Yeah we're in your corner and we hope that you learn some things from a chair. Maybe what you learned in twenty nineteen what stood out to you. Maybe we learn something from you. I agree if there are some things that we've said actually are like really cool bullet points triggers for you to be like. I bet you my suggestion could really help them right. This is a community. Bring it on so please let us know and think for today the focus of self growth in self love and care. We're focusing on that for sure. So thank you very much. Please follow Cecilia at Cecilia Kissel. Follow me at Brake Castle on Instagram. As well and together where keeping Kissel. That was a great sign off. I liked it okay. They know C. C. Good to this smile. It ain't complicating fact. It's easy to describe the perfect start the perfect day. I could say in a couple this morning having coffee with her..

"Oh welcome everybody or a very podcast. this is. What are we even going to call our podcast? Keeping Kissel cast. That's a good question and I felt fine. And then he said everything's live and it was like and then everything went. I know yeah it was weird it went from like feeling totally fine and in pumped till like Holy Shit. We've been thinking about this for a long time obviously for everybody's list that's listening I would actually say this is a lot more The entire keeping kissel brand was all CECELIA's idea this is something you've wanted to do for ever At least like two three solid years of China here eight actually and for me all I wanted to do out of this. Whole deal was podcast. The reason why I wanted to podcast is because for those who don't know Cecilia. I mean you know her on instagram. But she is wise beyond her years and cease like you are. You are so magnetic. I don't know what it is but maybe we'll tell you all their shit he pulled tell you all their secrets if they get to know you and actually become in your inner circle or allow you into their inner circle they open up to you. I'm all bullshit you're all real and it's a really really cool. Thanks yeah this first episode. I th I think would be great for people to get to know us how I mean. I've got an episode in mind for us to talk about how he met. But more people to get to know you and your story My goal is to kind of interview and keep the train on the tracks but that was my thought that I think that's a great idea. I I guess maybe start start from the beginning. Everybody always asks what your heritage is because you look so unique. I was are you. Cecilia Kissel So my dad is German and My mom is Bolivia N- so I'm I would say fifty fifty and my dad is actually a Mennonite so I would probably say he's hundred percent. German. There's no said something funny about men and night Women and how they dress hotel yes dressed. Oh yeah so. We're coming back when we were in school and all of the mennonite girls Which my my dad. And my whole family left them in a colony though they're not They're not practicing mennonites. But my dad grew up that way so it was a deeply ingrained but At school all of the mennonite girls would wear their dresses with their runners. And that's trendy. Now Yeah and we didn't make fun of people than it wasn't like that but it was like a an obvious difference. Obvious difference would show up and wear that for sports days. The only the only sports they were really allowed to do was Track and field because their lives were to Pre committed to their lifestyle and working the farm and in the kitchen and those kinds of things so they wouldn't be able to commit to Sports true but they could do track and field so you would see all of these young ladies in their dresses and their runners running track and field and they usually beat everybody in New York. No we were in Toronto. And everybody's literally wearing floral print dresses those white Feel or Nike shoes. Cousins were ahead of their time. How they really were. And you grew up in northern Alberta. I mean a lot of people know him from Flat Lake Just outside of Saint Paul Bonneville area you met in Bonneville yes but you grew up in Hines creek what I was born in Fairview Alberta but my my dad's family all settled in Wordsley Alberta. Which is even further from grand prairie but then We I I grew up in Hines Creek. Yup and what are some of your fondest memories of growing up Growing up in the country in the country just like being in the dirt all the time. You do say that a lot being just on earth for our kids. Oh yeah having your bare feet in like garden soil or your hands like picking out carrots or potatoes fresh for supper. There's nothing like that You know it's funny because there are a lot of kids that think that fruit or vegetables literally come from the grocery store. Yeah but it's like I feel so blessed to be able to teach the girls like that food comes from the planet and it's our job to care for the planet for sure. I remember vividly as a kid watching One of our neighbors when she was when she was on the combine. And going around our acreage. I actually go to our garden. Which was we had a huge garden like this wasn't like she was stealing or anything but she would go into our garden. She break off a piece of rhubarb and wash it in the rain barrel. And then edit and you ever sugar No because I never liked rhubarb unless it was in rhubarb critic treat this snap it off dipping into the Little Cup of sugar so mean. Grandpa always had a great garden. Grandma Betty had an incredible. Herb leaves are poisonous. Did you know that I thought it was just point? Seta LEAVES NO SERIOUS DOUBLE. Check THAT. But pretty sure. I wonder how much you'd have to eat to Croak. I'm not sure I'm not sure. Can you go out? Is it actually really poisonous? Pretty sure Dr believes 'cause point Cetera. Leaves is bad for the cats. It'll kill cats. Yeah which is that cats like the moment they see them. I saw eager up on there. And he's like you know like he's chewing it and you're like why. Why is that even thought? Well you know me and how much I care for those cats but I know you're super passionate over the moon over the star worlds very kind of thing so then you go from Hines Creek into Bonneville and what grade you dates confirmed. They are poisonous. It is yes to eat ten pounds of rhubarb leaves. That I think like you can't feed it to animals or horses or things like that. It affect them differently and dressing Well just kill me. Random knowledge up here When you when you move to Bonneville it was for High School. What grade was that great eleven three and eleven or not? It was the choice. I made a choice. I didn't move When I was in grade I chose to stay and finish my year. My family moved and I stayed. Yeah Yeah and I guess I don't know if you want if you want to reveal this about your how many siblings you've got and kind of the five And reach two years apart Yeah we'll I'm excited to see them over the holidays. Yeah of course yeah. Yeah I'm I've never been more nervous ever at not that I had many many girlfriends and maybe only had like two serious girlfriends before but meeting your family especially just in your family background and now actually spending time with Yvonne and Areco Getting they're buying was an especially vence. Was everything that I needed. Because like your dad at the time wasn't that I wasn't as concerned but a super concerned about Yvonne. Somehow I had such a deep respect for my siblings so it was like really important to me that whoever I chose to spend my life with Could integrate into my family somehow Just because I think a lot of families can split up over that if it's not or Distance I mean. Our our lives puts a lot of distance between our family Between your family my family just because it doesn't allow as much space For us to give the time that relationships need to grow your we love our families endlessly. We spend as much time with them as we can but we sacrificed a lot for your career. Yeah we'll of course. I'm how I'm obviously thankful that you do that but I miss them a lot. Especially young so my favorite memories were when you first started dating. I would come and we were just watching movies. Yeah the House. It was so interesting because my family from outside looking in was seemed to be very together right now in your family coming into. That house was such a special thing because everybody cared for each other and we would absolutely I would yeah I don't know if that's like super common but It is in Malaya movies. We I would like to say we don't fight or have like our disagreements. You know. We might be confrontational and go at it. Head on but we don't avoid the issue and Flow through it pretty quickly and then there's just like we all kind of just enjoy each other's company for sure at least that's how I feel so when I when I came into the picture. Did you tell your family about me before it kind of met everybody or did you know what if. I remember the bash. I'm pretty sure we were friends. And My dad told me about you as an artist like he had saw you know that this guy was going to be playing in town and he loves country music so I think he was sold. I knew he was like an easy. Sell 'cause he just loves country music but for me Yeah I would not make that association I for them because it didn't matter to me I just like to. You still doesn't matter to you now. It really doesn't. I just love that you love what you do that. You're passionate about it so I think people would find. This interesting is that I thought you were dating a lot sooner like a year. No why months and months. I mean. We'll some of the things that we're doing would do the with me if you're like. Oh Yeah but we're two years apart so I'm two years older so you would have been seventeen would have been nineteen. My friends were in university. You were exiting highschool so which which. I never told you that. You didn't know that right that you thought we were dating. No no no yes. I know you didn't know that. I thought that you didn't know that. I thought we were dating when we definitely were dating because I was telling everybody in my circle that you're my girlfriend. Yeah you were. I An. I was not doing that. I thought we were just like I wasn't seeing anybody else necessarily by the time you thought that it just wasn't I think a conversation and then When you're nineteen. I don't think people your slightly jaded and I don't think Once you're out of high school that you're quick to commit to a relationship right and so for me. It was like. Oh Yeah we're just we're just fleeing. We're just doing this. This was more like I just was not a person I wasn't like in that mindset. I wasn't eager to settle down. I was nineteen. And then you're like so. Many states are percents shut. It was it was. It was love at first sight on. I get a million times. I do get it because if somebody if somebody was behaving in highschool the way that we were that would have been dating one hundred percent right but when you're like the at the age of university people are playing the field more. They're getting around. They're getting out. It's like nobody wants to label anything you know. So those two years difference. Although they make no difference now they did make a difference. Then do you remember some of the things that you had said like? You had your own checklist of things that you needed for someone to be. Oh Yeah like your husband. Yes I was a little girl. I remember reading this magazine Article and it was about Basically now how we would word it is like manifesting your dream and yeah but at the time it was like Prayer work I would say like a religious aspect or connection about like dreaming to fulfil to fill those you know to fill that And so yeah it is. It said to make list like a detailed list of like what you want your future spouse. I was probably like twelve and I wrote it out like in detail. It was like I want a man who plays the piano. Yes so you said that to me which is funny and I and I bought a piano. Yeah and you do play the piano. Not many people know that And you do it beautifully Thank you I wanted. A man who had blue eyes and light hair and who was kind and gentle and Obviously respectful and it went on and on. I don't I don't think I added the hide in there but like had I..
