Welcome to If Not Now, When? This is one ordinary woman's journey of rediscovering her long forgotten dreams during middle-age. My hope is to inspire other everyday people to chase their own dreams and share their own magic and gifts with the world.
A talk about the quiet and solitudinous ways of an introvert.
Recognizing, in retrospect, how important alone time had always
been for me in the workplace. Also, a look at how introverts tend
to draw close to each other in the outside world.
Old ways of thinking get in the way of my writing, causing me to
feel like I don't belong. Lately, I have so many creative tasks in
the works, my inner trash-talker wants me to pump the breaks. Fear
wants to slow me down.
An ordinary woman bares her soul in order to force a self-reckoning. Middle-age caught me by surprise. Our nest had recently become empty, I was working in the same office job for the last seven years, and like so many others before me, I wondered— Is this all there is? I had lost track of my writing dreams decades ago. This podcast is a record of, not only the journey back to a writing life, but also the journey back to my Self. Who was I before alcoholism, marriage, parenting, career, and surviving consumed me? If I didn’t start living life on my own terms now, when was I ever going to begin?
