I'm feeling a little discouraged these days.
Like I'm losing my mojo because I don't know a single person who has taken any of my suggestions/ recommendations for... anything really. Books, podcasts, things to try, etc.
This is not a big deal in the grand scheme of things obviously, and I should just get over it, but inspiring people is one of my God-given things, so if I don't have that, what do I have?
There are a few instances from years ago that I cling to, so there is that, and to be honest, God always sends me a little something to encourage me now and again.
But I'm going to try again in this post. Never let it be said I give up too quickly.
So here's the thing is a podcast with Alec Baldwin. From the website...
Yes, that Alec Baldwin. The one from It's Complicated.
Here’s The Thing is a series of intimate and honest conversations hosted by Alec Baldwin.
Alec talks with artists, policy makers and performers – to hear their
stories, what inspires their creations, what decisions changed their
careers, and what relationships influenced their work.
And... he is fabulous. He has this voice that is just perfect for podcasts and he asks great questions.
I can't stop listening!
I've listened to him interview Jerry Seinfeld, Billy Joel, Carol Burnett and Molly Ringwald.
Okay, I confess - I listened to the Billy Joel one twice. I LOVED it. Some of you know I love Billy Joel a bit more than is entirely healthy. If you like New York, Billy Joel, the creative process (D and I love this kind of thing), the background to songs, listen to it.
Really, you've lost nothing if you listen to 10 minutes of any episode and hate it. But try and tell me what you think.
Otherwise, how was your Monday?
