“The Girl on the Right”
Have you made outside-the-norm choices for your life? Do you long to do something meaningful, even though you’re in your “second 53 years”? All you need is a little inspiration and some encouragement to take that first baby step? This is the podcast for you!
This episode is inspired by a face book graphic…several little girls in ballet class paying attention to the teacher, but “the girl on the right” is hanging upside down on the barre by her knees! The caption is: “Be like the girl on the right”.
Research led me to four women who chose paths not traveled by their peers: Agree with their politics or not, they lived “girl on the right” lives!
