The Year of Fun #23: Afternoon Tea at a Cat Cafe

I’ll be honest: I was a bit reluctant to record today, partly because I’m simply not in the mood, and partly because I was feeling some guilt around the actual subject of today’s Year of Fun.

The Year of Fun #22: A Sangha Sunday

I know I know! ANOTHER workshop. With a spiritual ilk. Is this the Year of Fun, or am I just having an existential crisis?

CIP058: So You don’t Have Time

If only I had more time… Raise your hand if you’ve ever said that to yourself or anyone else. (Unless you’re in a public place, in which case, I’ll let you off the hook with a blink.) You probably already know on a deeper level that it isn’t really lack of time that’s stopping you […]

The Year of Fun #19: Candle Making

A somewhat gentler Year of Fun challenge from last week… but not without it’s own risks of mild peril. Candle making was something that wasn’t actually on my Year of Fun bucket list, until a small brainwave I had a couple of months ago. Two male friends on separate occasions expressed their irrational love for… […]

CIP057: Thea Orozco on dealing with negative self talk

In this week’s episode of the Creative Introvert podcast I talk to Thea Orozco of Introvertology.
