You Cannot Plan For Everything

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

What other’s have said about the Plan Simple Podcast…

“Mia brings together the ideas and people to inspire a more balanced and meaningful life as a mom. She keeps it real and makes me laugh! I listen while I clean, walk, drive and fold laundry. She’d like a wise and caring friend who understands and supports the journey of motherhood. Mia know just what to say so that I feel understood and then provides the nuggets of wisdom with personal stories to reinvigorate my day.”
“Each week, I look forward to this podcast. Mia thoughtfully interviews guests who share their tips and tricks for encouraging healthy living for moms and their families. The ideas are not the traditional ones, and I am always in need of new, slightly unconventional ideas.”
“I love the simple and practical view that Mia takes on food and life. It encourages me to keep leading a healthy lifestyle that is accessible for any mom!”
