Editing is not Honesty ~ Letters to December 2019 #1
I have many thoughts which come up throughout my day, so I decided to brain dump them onto a fun little chatette of a podcast. Each day i record will have its own little nugget of my very own brand of wisdom for your listening consumption.  This episode was inspired by the fact that when I came into record this evening, (following my brilliant lightbulb moment) the technology was very much against me and I had to push through that so I could crack on anyway. i also discuss the temptations of editing ANY imperfections out f my work and hence decreasing the authenticity. As you can hear, somehow I resisted the temptation and made the podcast happen! :)

How People Get Away With Treating You Badly // The Things We Don't See
Sometimes we are selective about the sides of people that we choose to see. We can often tell ourselves that somebody is a "great person" even when they are not treating us great at all. If we can become aware of this, we can more easily determine the kind of people who might actually be great for us. in this episode, I explore this concept and how it can be overcome.

Blindness and Mental Health // The Things We Don't See
The Things We Don't See is a motivational podcast designed to look at people's inner-struggles, based on their emotional and mental health, to identify ways to help improve these areas in our own lives and to learn from the experiences of others. In this episode, I talk about my own, personal experience of how my sight has impacted on my mental health, lay out the premise for the podcast and introduce the idea that there are many things in life which we don't see, both in other people, as well as in ourselves. I discuss my journey and how I have changed from when I was young, to going to university and finding indepence and acceptance as a young woman. I explain how my confidence has been shaken at times and how depression and anciety have played a part in making me who I am today. I highlight how my blindness has always been something I have wanted to hide from other people, so that it would not taint how they viewed me as a person. I also want to hear from you about what it is that you are hiding from the world. What is it which you wish nobody else could see?
