Welcome to the Sensory Strides podcast. Observations of the world through activity, reading, listening, and everything else.
Episode 75! Wow! What a great trip it has been.
I’ve been reflecting on a closeout episode for this season of Sensory Strides and I have been struggling with what that should be. I have come to realize that Sensory Strides where it is now is not where it started. Growth in different ways than expected. I had been considering sunsetting this podcast.
I listened to episode 260 of the Bib Rave podcast and they announced that they are going to be ending their podcast after five years.
This seemed to be a sign to confirm that my thoughts on sunsetting Sensory Strides and allowing myself to focus on some of my other projects. Especially those that are Girl Scout related like my Hearts of Gold podcast and the work I’m doing with Badgerland council to improve and encourage more girls to earn their Highest Awards is likely the better place for me.
I’m recognizing that my mental health is just as important as my physical health, and I have been spreading myself thin. I need to focus on that which improves my mental health and that which gives me the strength and energy to be encouraged to pursue new interests. Working with these amazing young women in Girl Scouts feeds my soul in that way.
The new house is amazing and watching both the sunrises and sunsets each day have helped to allow me to relax in a different way than I have these last few years. I look forward to the summer and sitting outside watching those amazing sunsets.
