Happy Thursday! I’m still riding a major high from the release of the first episode of The Calm Collective Podcast last week, and then INSANE, heartfelt messages and emails you guys sent through. Like, whoa. I cried at least four times, and just feel so good right now – and thats thanks to all of you. I went into this with really low expectations. I kept thinking, “well just see how it goes… if no one likes it, oh well. I’m doing this for me. I don’t need validation.” But then I got it, and even just that one 10 minute episode resonated with a lot of you, and apparently got you eager to hear more. Which makes me feel so damn grateful I can’t even tell you.
Opening up and being vulnerable on the internet is not easy. It never has been – but its always felt like my truth.. something that I’m supposed to be doing. I’m not any more special than the next person, but I feel really compelled and almost responsible to speak up on the things that I’ve been through, the things that I’m working on, and the in-between realness that occurs when you set out to change your life. So thank you for hearing me, and thank you for letting me hear you, too. I love getting your feedback and knowing how I’m affecting you, if at all. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: if I can just help one person, that’s enough for me. Anything after that is a bonus.
Today I’m doing something a little unorthodox in the podcasting world, and I’M being interviewed. You might be wondering why I took this approach, so hear me out. I thought it would be helpful and maybe a little entertaining for you all to get to know the soul behind the podcast (me) since I’ll be talking to you multiple times a month. I asked my friend Erin (who’s a big part of the behind the scenes with TCC) if she’d like to do the honors, and whoa you guys. She came up with some seriously tough questions and totally took me off guard with some of them. (in the best way possible) Ready to listen?! Head on over to iTunes or listen right here if you don’t have Apple products.
