Did you miss me? The hiatus was short but refreshing, and now I'm back with all new episodes! This first one of 2016 features NO GUESTS; instead the content still comes from others with my take on it--I call it "Read to Me, Ree!"
In this new Read to Me, Ree! series, I curate articles of interest and share enlightening passages that will make you think. In this episode, I'm reading excerpts from three articles by Sylvia High, Erykah Badu and Seth Godin. What a mix! They are challenging us to consider our false pretenses,the lack of life fulfillment, and whether the pursuit of your calling is a worthy task.
Thank you for supporting my first season of the Kickin' it with Daree podcast! I wish I could reach out to each and every one of you personally, but just know that I deeply appreciate your support. This "episode" is a quick personal message from me to you. In the meantime, enjoy the holidays with your loved ones, and catch up on the shows you've missed. See you in 2016!
