Welcome to Episode 111! The Codependummy is celebrating it’s 2nd birthday! In this episode, you will hear me reflect on the lessons I gleaned from the second year of the podcast, the intentions I’m setting for this upcoming year, and 8 takeaways. I share about my favorite episode, ways I have grown, and the ways I hope to take these lessons and apply them as wisdom for year 3. The theme of this past year was tenderness. I set my intentions for year 3 to be focused on community! You’ll hear my plans in how I will carry this out. It’s a must-listen!
