Uniquely Mine

I have a friend who named her blog, “Broad Brains.” She defines it like this:

broad (brawd), –adjective: of great breadth. . . not limited or narrow; of extensive range or scope. . . liberal, tolerant. . . unconfined, free, unrestrained. . .
noun: Slang, a woman.

brains (breyns), –noun: understanding; intellectual power; intelligence. . .the center of thought, understanding, etc.; intellect.

Duh, thinks my brain, uniquely hers. I would never conjure such a clever use of words and define it like that. I created my own, so simple in my mind, yet so explicit. Daily, I strive for balance. I am one mom. A mom of many moms in our world, so simple: One Mom’s Balancing Act. Act because sometimes you really do have to fake it until you make it.

If you Google “Moms Balancing Act” you get my blog “One Mom’s Balancing Act” and another “A Mom’s Balancing Act” that pop up first. Similar, sure, but mine is uniquely mine. So, while it might not (in my mind) be as clever as a Broad with lots of Brains (and she does have lots) “One” Mom’s Balancing Act is uniquely mine – at least for now!

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
