A little over a year ago (and with a LOT of encouragement) I decided to dip my toes into podcasting.
My goal was to bring help and awareness to people seeking something more. I wanted to talk about insights I had and lessons I was learning. I hoped to connect with others who thought and felt the same way. I also wanted to offer meditations that could help expand awareness and find answers.
I can still hear some of the nerves in my first episodes and yet I love hearing the genuine joy and excitement as I stretched my comfort and boundaries. Podcasting quickly became a favorite outlet. There was, and still is, something freeing in sitting with the mic and chatting with the unknown about whatever topic is on my mind.
When I hit one year I decided to branch out. I felt the need to add voices and experiences to my own. I now wanted to highlight additional avenues of self-care and growth people could explore and tap into.
And then people began asking if I would join them on their podcasts and programs. Exciting. Thrilling. Terrifying. Insecurities crept in and I had to remind myself, it was all good. I have a voice and a message and it’s fantastic to have the opportunity to spread the message even farther.
I was simultaneously giddy and sweating bullets for the first interview. And the second. And by the third I’d settled in a little. I was better able to allow myself to just be in the moment. Go with the flow, so to speak.
It’s been an amazing journey.
I’ve learned more about myself, found confidence and strength in my voice and met some pretty amazing people.
I’m excited about where things will go from here. I’ll be tuning in to find out what’s next and I hope you do too 🙂
