Happy International Women’s Day, Punks! To celebrate, I’m debuting The Hope Experiment Series, the more abundant collaborative pieces I promised when I launched the new site. I can’t think of a better thought to share today than the experiment you see here: BABs In The Basement. If you’re wondering what “BABs” stands for, watch Season 2 of Ted Lasso, and you’ll get a clue as to what our endearing term for “executive she wolf” is…
Collaborating with me here is my pal, role model, accountability buddy, fellow multipotentialite, surrogate big sister and occasional latte date, Meghan Greenwood. Here are some questions that Meghan was kind enough to answer for me.
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: A writer, a teacher, a speaker and a women's wellness guru.
Q: How do you try to leave the world a little better off than you found it?
A: By being an ear for vulnerable conversations, supporting people in their dreams and creating for the betterment of society.
Q: What about creating this piece brought you the most joy?
A: Spending time outside of my comfort zone and promoting a positive message for women with my lovely friend, Lindsay!
(Editor’s note: that shout out was totally unprompted).
Q: What about it challenged you the most?
A: Definitely the hand-eye coordination of the ball bounces. Beats are inherent, but this is the first time I've utilized a prop to capture those beats in sync with another person!
Q: You know those times when we struggle to figure out what hope looks like? What do you hope this piece will remind us of when we’re left wondering if we’re going to be okay?
A: Perseverance is never a waste. Things will likely get better with time and if nothing else, you will grow and learn new life lessons in the process.
