Taking Care of Me: What I Really Needed at 50

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

In this short podcast episode, I provide listeners with an update on my commitment to “creating a life I don’t feel the need to escape from” before my transition to empty nester this fall, including my re-discovery of my love of writing. I share a piece called “Taking Care of Me” that will resonate with busy, worn-out women everywhere, where I explore what it really means to take care of yourself and the magic that’s available to you when you finally accept that you’re in the driver’s seat of your own life.

Don’t skip this one – it’s short and sweet but it also might be just thing you need to hear to take back some control over your one wild and precious life!

The Unexpected Joys of Midlife Friendship with Dr. Sarah Baillie, N.D.

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

Feeling a little lonely lately? It’s been a tough couple of years when it comes to connection. Sarah and I reflect on the role female friendships have played in our lives and how the nature of some of our friendships has changed over the years. We discuss the isolation and loneliness that can come with motherhood and midlife, and how a meaningful connection with a like-minded person can change that.

We also examine our own friendship and share the story of how we met and became such fast friends, how Wendy nabbed a spot in Sarah's "coven", and the surprising joys unexpected friendships in midlife have brought us.

Grab a cup of tea or lace up your walking shoes and join Sarah and me for a light, engaging, and uplifting conversation!

This is 50 Midyear Update

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

Following up on Episode 49: “This Is 50”, I provide listeners with an update on my commitment to “trying all the things” and to “filling up my joy bucket” to help smooth the transition to empty nester that is coming soon. 

I share the story of how I re-discovered my love of writing (which I discussed in last week's podcast with author Ann Dowsett Johnston, who is also my writing coach), and I read a piece (*gulp, this was the scariest thing I've done in a while!) that I hope will resonate with many of the busy women who listen to this podcast, about what we miss out on when we rush through life with the goal of always achieving, and don’t slow down enough to get present for the ordinary, in-between days (where all the joy lives.)

This is 50

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below. 

On my 50th birthday, I reflect on my life to date, my fears about hitting 50, and the surprising (and refreshing!) reality that came with the actual day. I share my goals for this decade including my commitment to having “fun for fun’s sake” and “filling up my joy bucket” to help me in the transition to empty nester that is coming soon.

“This is 50” will be a regular installment of the podcast going forward – sometimes featuring a 50-something guest with a story to share around her 50s to date, sometimes an update on my 50th year, and sometimes a conversation with the always-popular Bite-Sized Balance co-host, Dr. Sarah Baillie.
