If you’re feeling stuck or not creative enough, it could be that you just need to switch up the energy.

This podcast was one of several that were recommended to one of my groups yesterday. I listened the Take a Leap episode while I was on my walk this morning. It definitely gave me the feels. Fortunately I was the only person out because it took great restraint on my part to keep from crying. Just a big "YES!" Thank you. 💖 This is being added to my podcast favorites.
