Aspects of this podcast really spoke to me, specifically how it's not a bad thing to have many varied interests. To be a Jill of all trades. I have always been accused of being "flighty" because I have so many different creative outlets, whether it be writing or painting or photography or or or... People around me just can't fathom why I wouldn't want to pick one and perfect it. I can't fathom why they'd want to limit themselves to just one! It was wonderful to hear someone understand why it's not always ideal to be an expert in an area. Think of how many other aspects of ourselves we'd be ignoring with such a narrow view!

Also, Kimberly, I loved that Tara turned the tables and asked how YOU felt about "usage of time". It was nice to hear your perspective for a change. : )

Thanks Nicole! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! And so glad you can see that having varied interests in no way makes you "flighty"!! For sure! - Tara
