Winging It: Episode 1: Health

It was author, Kurt Vonnegut who said: "We have to be continually jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down." I’m a new mom and I constantly feel like I’m winging it. Winging it with motherhood, winging it with marriage, winging it with my career, and winging it with life in general. My life looks different than it did before I had a child (obviously). And it’s not that I didn’t think that was not going to happen, but I guess I didn’t think it would be so drastic and I would feel so out of place, so unfit for motherhood – in a nutshell, that I would feel like a failure in more than one area of my life. So, I’ve created an audio diary as an attempt to figure life out after having my baby. But actually, who am I kidding, this is about figuring out life period. This is Winging It.

Winging It: Episode 2: Finding Balance

Since having my son almost two years ago, finding the balance between him, my husband, my friends, my family, my work, my health, my finances, and my creative projects, has been a bit of a struggle. Once I feel like I have it all down, the next day, it all falls apart. I don’t know if my life will ever be balanced to be honest, I don’t even know if that is realistic for me, but as long as I am able to strive for a balanced life, and am conscious of when my life feels out of balance, that is completely good enough for me. In Episode 2, Winging It: Finding Balance, I take a deeper look into how to balance a full life – from date nights with my husband to my precious morning time before the world wakes up. I also include an update on how getting my health back on track in going.

Winging It: Episode 5: We are all Winging It

My son has been my greatest teacher. Being his mother has pushed me into myself – all my issues, my unrealized dreams, and upon his arrival, reminded me of all that I was before he came into my life, as if I was looking at myself outside myself. The more I grow in motherhood, the more I learn about life. I know these learnings would have made their way to me via a different route had I not decided to become a mother, but I am extremely grateful it was my son who dropped them on my doorstep. He said, "Mom, deal with this. Now." In this next bonus episode, We are all Winging It, I come to a big realization at the close of 2015. I also have exciting news about the future of Winging It. Thanks again for listening and Happy New Year to you all!

Winging It: Episode 8: Show Up (Even Without Your Shoes)

Can you imagine learning at two years old, that you have the power within yourself to be happy? I want to teach my son this. In Episode 8, Show Up (Even Without Your Shoes) I revisit balance in my life and how I continue to struggle with what's most important to do each moment and also, when it is just as important to do nothing at all. We are all trying to figure it out, we are all doing the best we know how to do, we’re not perfect, no one is, but isn’t our best foot forward enough? Isn’t it enough to just show up? I say yes it is.

Winging It: Episode 9: Turn Your Brain Off For Awhile

For me, I know when life gets extremely busy—too busy where my priorities get out of whack—I am the only one to blame. I set my own priorities, and it is my responsibility to protect those priorities. In Episode 9, Turn Your Brain Off For Awhile, I own up to neglecting to pay attention to my priorities, and after I bomb a live interview at a conference I was invited to participate in, I become determined to get passed my issue of public speaking.

Winging It: Episode 10: The Magic of a Boring Evening at Home

The backdrop of my life has been muted by the recent world events. I had a planned a different theme for this episode, but after what happened last week in Orlando, my thoughts and heart have been focused only there. At times like these, I recall a speech I heard at the Academy Awards by a woman named Gerda Weissman Klein. It has stayed with me forever.
