"2020 Podcast Proud" Weekly Wisdom

 

Inspiration quote in black letters with a white background with grey polka dots saying "sometimes the greatest adventure is simply a conversation" by Amadeus Wolfe

What is your proudest moment of 2020?

I am always in favor of tooting other peoples horns for them. I think it is so important to sing the praises of others when they struggle to do it for themselves. I am always on the lookout for those doing great things silently behind the scenes and bring them to the spotlight. I also believe in being proud of things I have done and not being scared to share it with the world. I am not going to let fear control what I feel others will think of me if I share my success. 

This week, I hit a crazy, insane and proud moment. 4 years ago, I started a podcast. I started it because of encouragement from a great friend, desire to share the journeys and passions of other registered dietitians and to build a community of connections through conversations. I didn't have a lot of faith in myself when I started. Who would want to talk with me? Who would want to listen to my podcast in a sea of other podcasts?  How stupid will I sound?  Why would anyone care about my podcast?

I didn't think I would last a year.

And here I am today, standing in my best wonder woman pose, reaching episode 200 this week. 200 conversations and connections I am proud of (even if some of those are just with me and my listeners), 200 lessons of learning how to cultivate something I started from the ground up - of course with a little help along the way.

There is nothing more special than being in the moment with someone, listening and learning about their experiences. Which is why I will keep going, maybe selfishly to make those connections with others I am beyond lucky to meet. Even if no one else is listening, I get the opportunity to be in the presence of a human who is doing great things and I get to share it with the world. 

This is my greatest adventure, one I proud of and looking forward to what is to come.
