When I’m not busy working on a presentation, media training session or other communications project, I might be taking our daughter Lulu to a playdate or a dance lesson.  I might be writing a story treatment for another book.  I might be sipping Italian espresso in one of Arezzo’s charming cafes.   Or I might be performing as mind reader “Madame Gina” – with my entertainer husband Scotty Walsh!

Here’s a snippet from our most recent show, “Meet the Silverstones.” 

“Meet the Silverstones”

It’s all about Life Balance.   Keeping yourself active and passionate about a variety of things fills your life with interest and flavor.

When we lived in Paris, I worked, took care of then-infant Lulu and took up painting.  A few of my paintings were even selected to be part of an exposition at an art gallery in our arrondissement. 

Here in Italy, I work, take care of now first-grader Lulu and, among other things, of course, I also wrote a book, Because I’m Small Now and You Love Mewalked the catwalk – along with Lulu – in a truly hilarious (for me anyway) Italian fashion show, wrote Arezzo’s English version of its website, and yes, performed as Madame Gina.

Lulu took this whole thing much more seriously than I did. 😉

Yes, there were some real beauties at this event — and then there was that gal in the light blue… 😉

I just put on my best CNN anchor-girl smile and tried not to think about the shoes that I’m sure were at least two sizes too small!

What do you do for fun? Do you have a profession you love? Do you also make time for other interests and endeavors?

Or, perhaps there is something you would like to try but have been putting off.  Most times, I find procrastination is a symptom of fear.  

If you would like a little coaching nudge to encourage you to obtain your life balance, I would be delighted to help! Contact me here or through my website at GinaLondon.com

In the meantime, tell me about your passions, your joys; tell me about how you create your own balance.

And you’ll have to tell me, because Madame Gina cannot really read minds! Shhhh! 😉

Till next time, tutti! Here’s to all of us creating a life that is as rich and diverse in experiences as we hope and dream it can be.

Baci, Gina
