MONDAY MOCHA WITH CHRIS FREDERICK

This Monday Mocha is a story of quite a powerful manifestation. Meet Chris Frederick, a boy from Ohio, middle America. Growing up with the person who left the biggest heart print on him; his mother, he came out to her when he was 17, just a few months before they were set to head out on a trip to New York.

The special moment that was awaiting them both turned out to actually be a moment that would not only shape Chris Frederick’s history…..but the actual history of New York City Pride. Chris experienced his first pride, in New York, alongside his beloved mother. He was immersed in the colour, community and celebration of what it is to be you. Little did this boy from Ohio know that a decade later, he would be the Managing Director of New York City Pride.

I love this story and I hope it gives your Monday just what it needs.

“Pride is the single moment the community comes together and rallies behind this identity and cause for wanting to be accepted by the world.”

MONDAY MOCHA WITH MONIQUE BOWLEY

I know it feels like a long time between Mocha’s. Now that Wednesday’s aren’t returning until July, our catch up time is down to once a week. It sucks but given the fact that I ask you all to invest in yourselves and listen to your inner child, play time and balance is a part of that so I must practice what I preach. At least that means we get Monday’s together right?

Now, before you freak out when you listen to this podcast and say, “I’ve heard this voice before.” Other than my dulcet tones, my guest for this week, Australia’s Queen of Podcasts herself – Monique Bowley, frequents the airwaves, currently on the Mamamia Podcast Network. Her work is award winning and her witty, quick whips and natural flair for conversation is apparent. What I loved about this particular podcast is that I got to see a deeper side of Monique, even when she told me she “Mutes it when the plop happens.”  What I loved learning about her was that she is engineered from a place of gratitude; which comes doing what she does….and having a pair legs. Much wisdom, laughter and Monday Motivation in this one, my friends.

“I go to mass every Sunday. There is no where in life anymore that tells you not to be a dickhead, as an adult. The one hour on Sunday morning, tells me to be a better person.”
