2 short posts from Kacie Main where she shares her thoughts on finding a positive perspective in life.Episode 1458: The Moment AND The Gift by Kacie Main on Finding A Positive Perspective In Life & How to find GratitudeKacie Main's affinity for writing started as a child, writing arguably overly emotional letters to family, friends, and boyfriends, and even an anonymous poem to a widowed neighbor. The first paper she wrote in college was nominated for a first-year writing award yet she still didn't think to pursue writing as a career. She spent years successfully wandering through jobs but always trying to figure out "what I want to be when I grow up." As her career path zigged and zagged, writing was always there, lurking in the background patiently waiting it's turn. Then at 32 years old, the patience ran out. She didn't sit down to write her book, it jumped out of her at perhaps the worst, best, most confusing, and most liberating time of her life.The original posts are located here: https://www.kaciemain.com/realtalk/themoment & https://www.kaciemain.com/realtalk/thegiftPlease Rate & Review the Show!Visit Me Online at OLDPodcast.com and in The O.L.D.

Love this podcast ❤️ this is such a great idea! I am always looking for ways to improve my life. I also believe that knowledge is power, not a control power but a learning experience. They say "The day you stop learning, is the day you start dying" An example of this, people with Alzheimer's can not learn anything new. Again Thank you so much!
