33: Soul-o Cast - What I learned during a 21 month break
When I took a break from podcasting during the initial lockdown in early 2020, I didn't realize or plan for it to turn into a 21 month break. While it lasted significantly longer than planned, I learned an immense about my own energy output, managing my nervous system, how to sustain creative projects and step into new ventures and identities, and a lot (I mean a lot) about forgiveness.
