I am so pleased to be writing this, the first entry in my blog. It signifies the launch of my new web site, and this project has been long in coming!!
Like most people, I am overloaded, under-rested, stretched to the max, and flying by the seat of my pants. As someone that preaches balance to my clients all day long, I often need to remind myself that I need to practice what I preach, or I won’t be taken seriously. Attaining a state of balance in my own life has been supremely challenging lately.
My dear Mom always said, “When it rains, it pours.” Like most old sayings that stick around, this one seems to be true.
I have had the good fortune of working with a great new web team that has helped me produce this beautiful new site…I’d like to send a special shout out to Val, David, and Amy at TAG Online for this!
I just started my own web-radio show on HotRadio125.com called, The Time is Now. I have met some wonderfully interesting people as I have pursued this endeavor. This project has kept me very busy, and without the help of my very patient producer Dick, there is no way that I could have kept my head above water.
Several weeks ago, I began making guest appearances on InVite Radio which airs on AM 1600 WWRL in New York City. I recently started co-hosting the show with these terrific folks; a special thanks to Jerry Hickey for making this possible.
I try to remind myself moment by moment, day by day, to “enjoy the journey,” as my baby brother Stephen always reminds me. Too often I am guilty of not living in the moment and sadly, I miss out on a lot of the joy that day-to-day life can bring.
This week, let’s all promise ourselves that we will seek balance in our lives: to balance work with play, exercise with rest, intensity with calm. The busier we get, the more we have to consciously create this kind of life, but I think that it is well worth it.
There is a saying, “we teach that which we must learn.” I believe that I was drawn into my career perhaps because I, most of all, need to read the words that I write.
