Wickedly Powerful Words - Day 11 #31DaysOfBlogging

Remember a few days ago we told you about the DREAM BIG event that we went to in Nashville in March? Well we met a new friend there, Ginna Claire Mason, and her story blew us away. She grew up dreaming of playing Glinda the Good Witch in Wicked the musical on Broadway. When she was a kid, she saw the play and told her dad she was going to do that someday.

GUYS, as if we need more proof, but WORDS HAVE POWER.

When we met Ginna Claire this year, she was, you guessed it, starring as Glinda on Broadway’s National Tour of Wicked. After we met her in Nashville, we started following her journey on Instagram and there was just something about her that drew us to her. She’s a giant LIGHT in this sometimes dark world, and we wanted to know her better. We also wanted you guys to know her better.

So we asked if she and Mary Kate Morissey, Ginna Claire’s BFF and the other star of Wicked (She plays Elphaba and is AMAZING) would be guests on our podcast. They are THE BEST and said yes, so we walkabouted our way right down to Tulsa to see them perform and interview them for our show. This fabulous duo has charisma for DAYS and they brought such wisdom and insight when we sat down and chatted with them in their dressing room before the show.

We talked about friendship, what life is like on the road, living your literal dream, breaking up with your own life, and navigating the unknowns in life.

We could keep telling you about this interview, (one of our most POPULAR shows of the season) or you could just go listen to it right now. Click here.

We feel so lucky to meet the people we get to meet on these journeys of ours. Ginna Claire and Mary Kate were two people we met this year very unexpectedly, and we could not be more grateful for their friendship and for all the wisdom we gleaned from them through this interview.

Tomorrow we’re going to circle back to what we learned from getting fired over someone calling Kate “HUGE” and how we are still learning from this experience.

Hope you have a wickedly wonderful Tuesday.

Hugs to you,

J&K
