Sometimes you just have to learn to say, YES!
All those things I said I really wanted to do but didn’t. Lack of confidence, lack of opportunity, lack of time. Lack of effort, usually.
So then I found myself in a place where saying yes was acceptable and haven’t looked back.
It started with saying yes to pigs, then writing, then speaking, then speaking some more but this time into a mic. I’m not likely to be headhunted by #BBCRadio4 any time soon but am so very grateful for the chance to talk with other people about their passions, our passions, the things we love.
So, #CountrySmile here we come:
World of Joy (#CountrySmile) on Radio Cardiff podcast: Helen Joy chats with the people she meets along her way – smallholder, artist, writer, speaker & critic, Helen shares her life with a wonderful variety of folk and animals. From piglets to hot tubs, dancers to spray paint – join her and her guests as they talk life, the universe and all things muddy, inevitably.
Who fancies joning me for a chat? Starting this week. Message me.
And always very happy to talk #pigs
