New Year, better version of myself.
Hi. How was your Christmas and New Year? Was it fun and relaxing or stressful? Both can be great learning experiences. I love this time of year. The New Year is always a time for me to get excited about wiping the slate clean and working on new goals. I really don’t set New Year’s resolutions anymore…I’m not really sure why but I think its because for years my resolution was always to lose weight, start a new diet, and be a size 2, and it always failed. I finally realized after 15 years of making that resolution that my body will probably never be a size 2 and that a healthy living program is 365 days a year for life and not for a couple months. So now I just enjoy the New Year as a time to reflect and look back at what worked for me in 2014 and what I want to change or achieve in 2015.
2014 was a HUGE year for me. I moved back to DC from NYC…accepted a radio gig on the new 107.3 (Huge undertaking starting a new morning show), working for Fox 5 again in a bigger capacity, got my mom through her diagnosis of breast cancer and treatment!! (She is officially cancer FREE! YAY). Not to mention I spent a lot of time thinking in 2014 of what do I really want? Not just today or in going back to radio but what do I really want in life? That question becomes clearer for me all the time. The hardest part for me is how do I express it without sounding selfish or hurting others? Not that my goal is turn to a life of crime but when you don’t want the status quo of marriage, kids, and having a conventional job people seem to get upset.
So 2015 I’ve decided my goal is be a realer version of myself, more transparent with you and myself and be more open to the opportunities right in front of me. One of my worst traits is comparing myself to others and wanting everything right now. That can be a problem. I tend to not live in the moment and instead always play the game of I’ll be happy when this happens…or I’ll focus more on others once I get this show…that kind of thinking prevents me from every living in the now and enjoying what I have. So this year I have a ‘reflectolution’…I reflect on the past year and make a resolution based on that! HA.
For the morning show, Sarah, Ty, and Mel we’ve been on vacation for the past two weeks. I’m looking forward to getting back on air and building some great ratings in 2015. I’m ready to take on the DC morning radio market with a vengeance. Give my old co-host Kane something to really shit his pants about…LOL. I kid. That is something else I want to be more transparent about…I get emails ALL the time asking me about the ‘real’ reason I left the Kane Show!? Of course there is more to the story than me just wanting move to NYC and be a talk show host…although that REALLY was the number one reason. So I’m on the fence…do I set the record straight and talk more about why I left the show and my relationship with Kane or just move on? I would love to know your thoughts. I get emails about it constantly so that forces me to think about it more than I’d like to. Feel free to leave a comment about it below.
In the meantime…have you had a chance to listen to my new morning show adventure Sarah, Ty, and Mel? What do you think of the show so far…what would you like to hear more or less of? I really want to do some crazy fun segments in 2015…like I want to get a queen size bed, put it in the middle of a park or square in the DC area and spray paint on the bed ‘be a kid again, jump on me’ and have people come jump on it! You know, something along that lines where we can get in bed together;)
Alright lovers…here we go. 2015 is our year. Get ready cause shit about to get crazy. LOVE you. Comment below and if you ever need advice or would like to be a guest on my podcast leave the details below or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
