“You cannot plan for everything, which is why planning is so important.”
Last week my mom fell playing tennis and broke her hip.
Originally this was a week to get a lot done in my business. I have designed a planner that I am counting down the days to show you, but there are lots of little things that need to happen so that I can.
I created the space. My 13 and 11-year olds were going to Washington DC with my parents, and my little one was going to camp.
The week started when my 11-year old broke her toe. One more home for the week, but I was OK. I immediately made a plan for a “get some work done”/”go on fun outings with girls” balance.
While at the hospital getting a boot for my daughter, I got the call that my mom fell while playing tennis and an ambulance was taking her to the hospital.
In the matter of 30 minutes there were a lot of choices to be made, and I learned some really valuable lessons about motherhood, being a daughter, work, and food.
I share them on the episode.
I talk about…
- The importance of a tribe
- Keeping things simple
- Eating well, even when that is hard
I also share my three big lessons for the week, aka, the things that did not go so well, including…
- Making space on either side of crazy days
- Drinking enough water
- Time blocking, setting rhythm, and checking in regularly
