The TV Interview


When I accepted my promotion eight months ago, I knew it would be a lifestyle change.  My mornings became a little earlier (around 4:30 or 5 a.m.), my work days became a little later (anytime between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.), and my responsibility became greater.  Still, I made a promise to myself that I would make up for busy weekdays by being fully present on the weekends and by taking time off during the week when I could--to be with my little guy, of course.  My motto has become, "Work hard; play harder."

There are days when I long for a simpler, quieter life--the one I had when I resigned from my full-time job when Lewie was first born.  Still, my work does have its perks; it provides me with tremendous growth and learning opportunities, and it pushes me to move out of my comfort zone and make strides in areas that I would have otherwise been too scared to pursue on my own...

At the end of May, I was requested to speak on two major news programs in Connecticut to promote our Division of Professional and Graduate Studies at Albertus Magnus College.  It was an honor, to say the least...however, knowing that I'm an introvert by nature and that I would much rather write my thoughts than speak them in public, I was NERVOUS.  I came up with a list of possible questions, and I rehearsed answers to them again, and again, and again..." title="WFSB 3 Connecticut">WFSB 3 Connecticut

I must say that I debated writing about my television interviews on my blog.  This has been traditionally a space I use to talk about my little guy and my family--not work. Still, my husband has been majorly supportive (posting the links on Facebook for the entire world), and my son has been excited  to "see Mommy on TV."  (Little does he know that it will be my own lesson to him that sometimes we need to push ourselves to try new things in life--even when they are incredibly scary...)

At this time, I'm glad the interviews are now over and that I've since been able to return back to a life of normalcy (a.k.a. I don't need to wake up at 4:30 a.m. to rehearse my lines...)  Thank you for allowing me to share my "other life."  I still struggle with being a working mom (I always will), but little by little, I'm learning that finding the right balance (in anything) is truly the greatest lesson of them all...
