Mindful Monday 40: Do People Suck?

May 14, 2018

I have a big big confession this episode. It has to do with one of my biggest pet peeves and greatest beliefs. It also has to do with one of my favorite songs ever.

 

People by Andrew Jackson Jihad

People are wasteful, they waste all the food
People are hateful, and people are rude
But god I love some people sometimes
Because people are very, very special

And people are impatient, they don’t know how to wait
People are selfish, people are prone to hate
But god I love some people sometimes
Because people are the greatest thing to happen

People are people regardless of skin
People are people regardless of creed
People are people regardless of gender
People are people regardless of anything

People are my religion because I believe in them
People are my enemies and people are my friends
I have faith in my fellow man
And I only hope that he has faith in me

May 9, 2018

Beth Moncel didn't plan on creating Budget Bytes, the amazing food blog that's helping people cook healthy, wallet friendly meals, but thank goodness she did! I loved hearing about how creating a little spot on the internet for herself lead to a nine year journey of helping people and creating her dream job. Beth's gradual transition into making her passion project her day job is a great story to hear for the more cautious of us creative women.
