How I went from being privately emotional about life’s sucker punches to being calmer in my mental responses. Work life as a black woman in all-white work spaces. Also, noticing the differences in the routines of big city lifestyles versus small-town living. AA Twelve Steps rescued me from alcoholic thinking.
This wasn’t the originally scheduled episode but glitches occurred and I had to regroup for a different direction. This morning I set up the mic and let my thoughts fall out. Apparently, I needed to talk about my alcoholism and the racial tension I sometimes navigate in the professional world. I realize I’ll never be expert in any of these areas, therefore I must revisit the lessons with humility and a desire for more learning.
