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.
