So, who am I?
I am still trying to figure that out too, but here’s a couple of ice-breakers:
I am not famous. Let’s get that out of the way now, so I don’t disappoint you later.
I never intended to have a career in television. I fell into the entertainment business almost by accident and it kind of snowballed from there.
This blog is not a "Hollywood-Tell-All” nor is it a memoir. It’s just about a girl trying to figure out who she wants to be when she grows up… and maybe the meaning of life. Okay, maybe that is too ambitious, but dare to dream.
(If you want to know origin story behind 52 Mondays read The Backstory.)
I have 3 daughters. Ages ranging from 14-24, which might qualify me as an expert in hormonal imbalances and women’s issues.
I am a wife, but also an ex-wife. Some people say that means I have “baggage." I like to think of it as “experience.”
I am a dog owner. I have one small, very fluffy, little white dog. He is hopelessly spoiled. He barks too much and does not respond to simple commands. It’s my fault. I read all the books. I even hired a dog trainer, but I didn’t follow the instructions. My daughters refer to him as “the favorite child.” No comment.
I am a tennis player. I love it more than it loves me. I wish I had played sports when I was younger, instead of ditching Phys Ed and smoking cigarettes in the high school parking lot. Live and learn.
I practice yoga. I took a 25-year hiatus, but finally came back to it and even became a Certified Yoga Instructor.
A few years ago, I learned to meditate and now have a daily meditation practice. My only regret was not starting earlier in life.
For 30 years, I was a television executive. People loved to assume that my career defined me, but it was simply how I made my living. I had a love-hate relationship with my television career. It was intellectually stimulating, but the stress almost buried me alive. After leaving my executive life, I spent a few years working as a television producer. But being a producer was very much like being an executive except without having any of the power or the control. So, I needed to make another radical change in my life. This is why I became a Life & Health Coach.
My blog is very much a weekly chronicle of that journey of self-discovery as it unfolded and continues to do so every Monday.
