 Hey, it's Cindy and you're listening to The Brave Enough To Try Podcast, a show created to provide you with helpful life and small business tips, as well as encouragement and inspiring conversations with friends that I've made along the way so that you can be inspired to be brave enough to chase after your wildest dreams.

Episode 001:
Hey everyone, it's Cindy. Thank you so much for joining me on today's episode of Brave Enough To Try. This is a show created to provide you with all types of beautiful, wonderful things to help inspire you to be brave enough to chase after your wildest dreams. Welcome to episode number one. If you have been following me for a really long time, then you know that last year I started a podcast called Creativ*ish  and it was going really well.

And then unfortunately I had to take a break cause we had a lot of changes happening in my life and in my family. And to be honest with you, I wasn't sure if I was gonna come back for a season two, but when I thought I was ready and I did. I decided to look into the podcast and I was made aware that there was about three other podcasts that just recently started with the name Creativ*ish, and I didn't really want to dive into season two using that same name, knowing that there was other really awesome podcasts out there who had started using the name as well.

Because I just didn't want it to be confusing, especially for my listeners and to my followers. So going back and forth with my husband. I almost thought that it would be time to sort of hang up my podcasting hat. And then my husband inspired me with the name brave enough to try, cuz during this conversation we were talking about which direction we wanted our lives to go.

And he said, "you know, Cindy, you've always been brave enough to try new things. Um, you just kind of go for it." And I kind of paused in that moment because I thought, wow, I really love the name brave enough to try. Also too, I was incredibly flattered that, um, he views me that way. And so I thought I would love to create a podcast, a new podcast where we are sharing really helpful life and small business tips as well as encouragement and a place where I can have inspiring conversations with the friends that I've made along the way.

Um, who you know, who can share their journeys of times that they've been brave enough to chase after their dreams so that you can be inspired, you as a listener can be inspired to chase after your own dreams and you can use these tips and tricks, um, and conversations to sort of fuel you forward so that you can gain the momentum that you need so that you can be brave enough to try and accomplish all the wonderful things that set your heart on.

If you are new to this podcast, well welcome. I'm so glad that you are joining The Brave Enough to Try Family. My name is Cindy. Um, I am a. Artist slash creative mentor. I do a little bit of that and I do a little bit of this. Um, but for the most part, I've been an educator my whole entire life, and it's something that I love to do.

I love to teach, I love to encourage, and I really love to show up for people and show them that they can, um, not only be dreamers, but also be doers in the process. A little bit about this show. I wanted to talk to you guys how this new format's gonna work. I'm going to be coming to you guys every week on Fridays because I thought it'd be kind of nice to end the week with a little bit of encouragement and a little motivation so that you can have a little pep in your step as you start the following week.

I'm going to be coming to you weekly, as well as the episodes are going to be very short and sweet and juicy, full of lots of wonderful content, and it's gonna be anywhere between 10 to 15 minutes. I just want it to be short, quick, digestible, um, just enough. To give you that push to wanna keep going, um, without boring you to tears or without giving you too much of the fluff.

I just wanna get in and out and I wanna be able to just really meet you where you need to be met. For today's episode, I just wanted to talk a little bit about 2022, what led to the new podcast and what you can expect from me on a personal level versus a business level. Um, , I feel like 2022 was full of so many changes.

For those of you, um, who already know, you know, that my husband and I decided that we are going to be moving across country, um, about 3000 miles away from where we're currently living. Originally, this was supposed to happen, I'm gonna say like eight months ago, but we had a lot of, um, awful, tragic things happen in the process.

We lost my grandma. We had some health scares. Um, we just had a lot of things that kind of showed up unexpectedly, um, and we just didn't really know how to process or move forward. , well fast forward to 2023. Um, we are now in the year where this is sort of like the final stretch to be able to make the move.

Um, and before we can get there, there's still a lot of little things that need to be put in place. Um, so this is really gonna be about the journey and the pivots. Um,  really for me, it's sort of a place where I can like, let go of my fear and I'm also gonna be learning how to be brave enough to try new things alongside of you.

Um, I truly believe that. When we show up and we tell our stories, we allow other people to see it from different perspectives. And I think sometimes in sharing the story, other people can see themselves in, in your story, in the story that you're telling. And I think that you can be the push and the inspiration that they need to chase after their dreams.

I think that there's a lot of people in the world who just need that encouragement. Just need to know that if you can do it, they can do it too, kind of mentality. Um, and I really wanna create a community where we show up and support each other and we're really motivating because I think sometimes, and I hate to say this, and you know, it might not be a very popular opinion.

But I like to think that there are some people even in your inner circle that are not going to support you or they're not gonna encourage you. If anything, they might kind of make you question your, um, dreams or your goals or your ambitions, and you might kind of feel embarrassed to share things with them.

And I don't want this space to be like that. I want this. Space to be a place where you show up and you're like, Hey, Cindy, you know, this is my dream. This is, this is my wish. This is what I wanna do, and I'm gonna be here to support you and cheer you on every single step of the way. Um, because a lot of the times I think that people want to give you advice and kind of stop you before you get ahead of yourself because in their mind, they think that they're trying to protect you.

And I think a lot of the times what what ends up happening is that they. Sort of allowing their fears of the situation to rest on you. And so they're projecting on you. Now, this not, this might not be the case all the time cuz there are truly situations where people really are trying to watch out for you.

But I think that if we let fear of what other people think, stop us before we even get started, we're really never gonna know what we're capable of doing. And that's what I. Podcast to be about. I want you to learn and grow and to be brave enough to try new things. And in the process I'm gonna be doing it with you.

And there might be some things that I fail at terribly and I can't wait to share that with you and laugh about it later on. Um, but in the meantime, I just want us to show up and to encourage each other and to really give us the push that we need to just. Embark on this journey together and let go of fear and just do the thing because I truly believe that we are capable of so much more than we give ourselves credit for.

So I'm so excited you guys are gonna be joining me on this journey. I will be seeing you next week with a special two drop. I'll be dropping an episode on Monday and then we will continue. It's sort of a bonus episode, and then we will continue with our weekly episode of that Friday and each Friday from there on, I will be having conversations with friends along the way that you guys will be able to listen to.

There'll be some solo shows where it's just me and you. And honestly, I just can't wait. I'm so excited to have you, and until next time, to continue the conversation, come join me over at Instagram at @itscindymoore  or at @braveenoughtotrypodcast.
