I hope that everyone is enjoying the holidays!
As many of you know, I am a full-time educator so the holidays mean a nice vacation until the new year. However, this girl had so many vacation days, she’s been off since December 17th. When I tell you it has been good for my soul, I MEAN it’s been good for my soul.
What’s vacation without a little bit of work? Fun work in this case though. Last night, I had the pleasure of doing my first (hopefully of many) podcast. A buddy of mine from my days at Slippery Rock, “Mouse Jones,” started a podcast not too long ago and invited me to be a guest last night on his show.
Our conversation was just what the doctor ordered. From culture and music to jobs and diversity, the discussion encompassed so much of which I am super passionate about. One thing that bubbles to the top for me is how connected everything is in this life. We are a community of people who can do amazing things if we learn to appreciate the differences that each of us brings to the table. Democrat or Republic, black or white, freelancer or 9-5er, what is different about us and our experiences is exactly what should bring us together. I am not saying that you have to befriend everyone you meet, but having people with different interests and perspectives in your circle, is good for the soul.
