#364 CHARACTER w Rita Desnoyers Garcia
Character is an equation: your daily traits + your nurturing self + intellect + motives + who you show up as = The Story you tell about who you are. Character is the one "Trait" that should be unwavering. The You that is the same even when no one is watching. We take this word to a descriptive place such as, "Oh, she is such a character!" It also becomes someone we can immerse our self in and become for a moment in time, the characters in the play of our daily lives or on a stage. Spend some time with Stacy, guest-host, DonnaMarie Newkirk, & our guest Rita Desnoyers Garcia, as we define Character from our perspective.
