I am just turning 48 years old. A single mom of three kids, ages 10,14 and 15. It’s exam time for them, and for me, it’s a glorious spring morning; perfect weather for my 6 am run through the park, followed by a workout on the back deck. If I may so myself, I am in awesome shape. Except that, during that whole month of May, I just haven’t had the energy to run up the hill. My heart races, and it’s hard just to catch my breath.

I was that girl once. The one who found it ridiculous that people could spend hours of their day listening to mindless chatter on their headphones. The concept made little sense to me, and the amount of content was so vast that it felt insurmountable. There was also no guidance on the ‘what’. What would I listen to that could be my thing? Not just listening because I had to, or someone told me to, but because I wanted to.
