    โ€œAustralia ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ+COVID19 = Fully F*cked.โ€ Great guest! Laurence McIntyre letโ€™s us know how โ€œmadโ€ it is

    COVID19 in Australia is unbelievable. Imagine several โ€œlockdownsโ€? How about the latest lockdown at 300 days w\only one hour of outdoor activity. And youโ€™re not allowed to meet & talk with your neighbors AND youโ€™re not allowed to drive past 3-miles away from your homeโ€ฆ (if you are not vaccinated, you are STILL in lockdown) Authoritarian police are power crazy; no protest are allowed, no rights to guns, or maze/pepper spray. Australia ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ is experiencing unbelievable Sunk Cost Fallacy. According to Laurence, their leaders are dictating how Aussies live. And so much moreโ€ฆ

MFG Episode Ramon Ruiz

Mental health and music; some of my favorite conversations! Great listening to this episode Sharon and your guest was a easy flow talker and he hit major points; being patient with yourself is I believe he said regarding working on your projects and things. As a creator myself, I get it!

Itโ€™s s great to see someone in his position discuss what his profession in social work is and what one does in it; I respect social workers so much! They help people out so much!

Being creative is therapeutic and it helps others who sees and/or sees your artistic work โœ๏ธ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŽค
Thanks for doing this interview Sharon! ๐Ÿ™
Everything that you have done, it always showed how much hard work youโ€™ve put into it and continue doing! ๐Ÿค—
