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.
