Glass Half Full is an educational podcast about sharing our life experiences, as a lesson. A safe platform where people can listen, and learn through positivity, spirituality, wellness and creativity in someone else’s testimony and life experiences. We all have something to share, and many times we are all searching for the same things. I hope to start a platform, to aid in this educational bridge to show how we can become our best selves, that we possibly can. Through this, I believe we can really live the most out of our daily lives.
