The Me-Time Mixtape: Three essential hand-curated links and resources on creative self-care. Carve out some me time this week!

On June 21, I celebrated the first anniversary of Let the Verse Flow! My loving thanks to you for listening to the podcast, reading my poetry and newsletters, and sharing your insight and feedback with me over the last year. 💜💛

Here's a recap of the first year. I'm so grateful for reaching these milestones:

  • I published 32 podcast episodes.
  • I had an article on grief published on the Tiny Buddha website.
  • I was a guest on the YourCreativeChord Podcast.
  • I produced a series of affirmation meditations, including this popular one on Keeping Your Dreams Alive.
  • I created the Me-Time Mixtape newsletter (my special thanks to all the new paid subscribers!!)
  • I just launched a new 3-day caregiver stress relief meditation course on the Insight Timer app. It offers teachings and affirmation meditations to help reduce stress for busy caregivers. If you meditate or like soulful content on mindfulness, self-care, sleep, and Eastern philosophies and spiritual practices, you'll love Insight Timer. I'm a new teacher on the app and am already loving the community there. I hope you'll check it out!
  • I connected with incredible, creative, talented, lovely people like you!!

My podcast is a labor of love that feeds my soul, and I can't wait to grow and create new episodes in year 2. I hope it feeds your soul too, and to that end, I have some questions for you...

Please Share Your Feedback (on a Short Survey)

As I close the books on this first anniversary, I want to get your feedback on how you'd like the podcast and Me-Time Mixtape Newsletter to develop. I've created a short survey (only 7 no-nonsense questions – your time is precious).

Your feedback is vital and guides my work. For example, several listeners requested that I produce more affirmation meditations because they found my voice soothing and wanted me to dive deeper into certain topics (especially with an affirmation meditation on keeping your dreams alive). You can find that one on my YouTube channel or as a podcast episode. I heard you, and am creating more meditations.

I'd love to know what topics you'd like me to cover in year two of the podcast, any creative self-care resources you'd be interested in getting, and ways that I can make the show more inspiring or useful to you.
