Yes. We all fuck up sometimes.
Pursuing my dream of being a podcaster has had plenty of ups and downs. Mostly ups...but an occasional mistake has been made. I recently butchered a guests name on my podcast and I felt pretty terrible afterwords. I had gotten so caught up in the lovely interview we had that I had lost sight of something very important; how to pronounce my guests name. There is a lot in a persons name, it's a part of your soul, your journey and who you are as much as the journey you lead itself...thus; we all fuck up sometimes and we MUST acknowledge, apologize and correct the issue or mistake at hand when we do so. I tend to be a defensive person, I tend to put blame on everything or everyone else but me at times...but I'm learning. I'm learning a lot. And one thing I am learning is to own IT. Own my mistakes. Own all of them. I hope you all do the same. Don't loose your integrity and your wits about you when you are following a dream or a passion you love with all your heart, don't...let things you care about, people, feelings...don't let those things fall between the cracks as you pursue your dream. Be kind and respectful. Okay? And now, back to enjoying some RUSH on dvd with my husband before another podcast interview I have scheduled for this afternoon. Breaks are good too. Taking Breaks = the key to your success.
Lots of love - Ali
