Hey, all! I never know how to begin or end things (story of my life) but I’m trying to work on changing that aspect of myself. *
Where to begin?
This podcast initially was my intro into discussing rapid life changes, especially as you got older. I’m in my thirties, and while I enjoy getting older — I started feeling suffocated by a life that didn’t seem to fulfill me. At the same time, i was meeting people (younger and older) who were living life on their terms and saying fuck it and doing them. I found that interesting and wanted to explore that and thus, the initial idea of « Getting Your Sh*t Together was born! *
But wait, what happened though?
Well, life did. After a series of mishaps throughout the course of the past ten years, I took stock of where I was late last year and realized I need to get my act together for my sake. So I decided to do what a lot of folks do for the new year, I gave up drinking (again) for Sober January. Throughout all of that, I looked back at how alcohol has served my life (it hadn’t) and how it shaped the person I was to that point. Coming to terms with the idea that I didn’t relate to alcohol in a healthy way wasn’t overnight but I decided to stick it out for January, at least but secretly I knew I was going to keep living an alcohol free life for as long as possible. It’s been six months so far and I feel totally different than where I was six months ago never mind last year. I found my honesty and I’m excited about the person I’m becoming. So, I decided to do something new (the old Cynthia would have cringed at the thought) and take it to the podcast. So, here I am.
This is all new for me but that’s okay. It won’t be always be perfect but it’s a journey...a honest one at that. lol
Looking forward to connecting along the way. First episode drops August 1st! *
