In 2019, I was introduced to a podcast called Armchair Expert. I had been driving a lot for work, and while I thoroughly enjoy listening to music, I wanted to try something different. I chose this podcast because I adore Dax Shepard, and I love hearing about how celebrities are just regular people too. I got so much more out of it than I had expected, which led me to the wonderful world of being an Armcherry—the title held by fans of the podcast.
Listening to each interview—no matter the topic or person—was so inspiring. Listening to people talk about following their dreams and doing what they loved brought a whole new thought to my own world. A whole new outlook of IT IS POSSIBLE to achieve my dreams.
While I had already been nervous about my up-coming 30th birthday, Armchair Experts gave me the push I needed to make myself a goal list and actually do it in 2020. While much of my free time has been taken up by those things I have listed in my goals, I still tune in to new episodes—whether to learn, be entertained, or both.
