This is the story about taking apart a vegetable garden to make place for a parking lot.

Does that sound crazy? It looked crazy. It felt crazy. But this is the story about being brave enough to break down what you thought you wanted in order to make room for what you believe you need.

This is about being willing to pull up old dreams in order to make space for new ones. Because growth takes room and always before it looks better it looks much, much worse.

No matter what stage you are en route to new dreams, we hope you’ll stop today and join us as we watch Christie’s biggest dream be brought down all the way to the ground, white picket fence posts uprooted and nails removed one by one.

Out of the Ordinary

The podcast for anyone who’s ever felt the nagging frustration of wondering if her life is too small, too boring or too ordinary to make a difference.
