  • Ann Moller aka Annie

    Hi guys! I loved this first episode. Such a wonderful story of love and taking risks. It was touching and also quite funny – and that’s coming from someone who already knows most of the story :) It was a treat to hear some layers that were new to me, as well.

    To answer your question, one of my leaps of faith was moving back from Maine to NYC to resume pursuing my dream career in the performing arts, which was not an easy decision with all that Maine has to offer (including my family). As you know, it hasn’t yet panned out in all the ways I wanted or planned. But I’ve definitely had significant forward movement in my career. And beyond that, SO much growth, healing, and learning–all very necessary and important for me in becoming who I am meant to be as a human and as an artist. Two years later, I’m still here, walking my path, stronger, healthier, and happier, rising like a phoenix from the ashes (a cliche but one that applies here). I don’t for one minute regret my leap of faith. It took me exactly where I needed to go next.

    Congratulations on your new podcast! I look forward to the next episodes. xoxo Annie
