Balearic Breakfast | Episode 120 | Just be Balearic...

Updated: Apr 30, 2023

Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy broadcast the 120th episode of Balearic Breakfast on her Mixcloud and Twitch TV socials on January 31st 2023.

A new show, a new edition, with new members joining the Balearic Breakfast Family. Can you believe that this is already the 120th episode ?! I just can’t. Time flies at such a high speed I’m mesmerised; we are in 2023 people…! So you might wonder what I’ll come up with as far as this specific 2-hour show is concerned!

And, remember. Just be balearic !

Well, I feel it’s the right time to focus a little bit more on how Balearic Breakfast may positively impact the listener. It does impact me, for sure. You may have in Mind Colleen’s little phrase, “And remember, just be Balearic...” At first, I took that little phrase as a jingle, a signature. However, it got slowly under my skin and touched my soul. Working as a legal editor, I am, like many of us, impacted by, let’s say, “professional responsibilities”, and sometimes it is stressful. The same tense situations may occur in my private life, as to all of us. And, gradually, what happened is that whenever these tense situations were emerging, I would do anything to ease them out by staying calm and making the best I could to Talk or calm down the people that were “attacking” me. I won’t say that I succeeded every time, but I’m really doing my best to stay Balearic. After all, when you think about it, aren't communication and understanding synonyms of “love”? And since love saves the day, you might just empower it by being Balearic!

Anyways, It’s a new objective I’m working on, and I won’t let it go! So next time someone is bugging you, stay calm and reply calmly without ever compromising on what’s absolutely due to you. That’s all folks; enjoy this show in which I can easily picture a bouncing palm tree! And remember... Just be Balearic!
