My Sweet – Sweet Sweet Sweet Sister, Claire.

My one and only ~ Sister!

We had this fantabulous talk last night on the phone and I told her I was running out of fuel for my blog. I’m not running out of things to say, but I’m running low on motivation. Motivation is the fuel that lights the fire. Not so sure I want to keep at it. I used an analogy. I told Claire that if my blog is the fire in the fireplace, I’m running low on paper to relight it every day in the form of a new blog post. I just don’t care so much about the fire anymore. Nobody seems interested in sharing the benefits of it with me.

Claire said, “No Jenny. You’re not running out of paper. Trees cover the planet. There will always be plenty of paper.” She also told me I need to start a podcast.

I’ve never even watched one.

This idea of starting a podcast brings up feelings of great discomfort. I’m not a fan of being the center of attention on video. I never performed well in drama class. But, I do realize that this wouldn’t be acting. Claire said to pretend like there’s no camera. And I said to myself, “Well – CLAIRE – if I could do that, I’d have done better in drama class!

The reason why I’d start a podcast – in the face of my great aversion to it – is because I have this desire to share the momentum of this recovery wave I’m riding. I don’t feel that it’s fair to ride it alone when so many folks are suffering, like I did, when it isn’t really necessary. This wave is massive and there’s room for everybody.

SO – stay tuned. 🙂
