Divorce Diaries Show Creator Michele Traina

 

If you do not ask the question, then the answer will always be no. I happened to be on Instagram when there was a notification that our guest Michele Traina was doing a live video. I jumped on because I've wanted her on the podcast ever since I started to follow her on IG.

 

I dropped a comment in her feed, and well, here we are. 

 

Michele is someone that, if you get on her wrong side, then you won't be sleeping with the fishes, nope, you will be part of her comedy act. Just ask Police Officer Mike.

 

On this episode we talk about:

  • Don't have a meeting with her while you schedule your own meeting with someone else (funny story).
  • Does Michele's daughter think she is funny?
  • Is laughter therapy?

From Michele's bio:

Michele Traina is a performer, educator, and creator of multiple performance brands that carry a thread of healing through humor. She has toured around the country from Stand up to Shakespeare. Michele earned her Masters in Educational Theatre from NYU and has her principal, supervisor, and theatre teacher certifications in the state of New Jersey. In 2013 she founded Propbox Players, a theatre company for young audiences geared towards inclusion and performance for diverse learners. Her one-woman show How to Be A Successful Teacher was in United Solo Festival in 2012 as well as multiple other performances in the tri-state area. She continued her one-woman show 'train' when she was getting divorced by putting her diary on the stage. Michele created Divorce Diaries in 2013, and it has evolved into a one-woman comedy show that laughs at life's beautiful mishaps.

A Jersey Native, Michele's work has a trademark accent and physicality to it, unlike anyone else. She's fiercely energetic and uses her own challenges in life to motivate and inspire her practice as an educator and performer. Michele's obsession with coffee, high kicks, and running literally everywhere. Her favorite role will always be a mom to her beautiful daughter, Grace.

Our guest is Adrian Dater, who I met at a men's mental health workshop in Denver. One of the speakers is a past guest on the Blending The Family Podcast: Clint Malarchuk and his wife, Joanie.

 

As I was walking out to my car, I was walking with Adrian. He is one of my hockey go-to writers even though I am not a Colorado Avalanche fan. I wanted to ask him so many writing questions, but I wanted to wait for a better time.

 

This will be part two-part conversation I had with Adrian. In this episode, we talked about why I am not a fan of the Colorado Avs. Who is Sean Jensen https://broadstreetpublishing.com/authors/sean-jensen/

Did I hear Dater speak as if he too has "Impostor Syndrome"?

 

Adrian's brief bio:

He also covered the Avs for  BSN Denver and was the lead NHL columnist with  Bleacher Report from 2013-16. Dater has written six books, including the best-selling hockey book "Blood Feud: Detroit Red Wings v. Colorado Avalanche, The Inside Story of Pro Sports' Best and Nastiest Rivalry of its Era," and was a regular contributor to  Sports Illustrated from 2011-13. Dater can be heard on 104.3 The Fan.

Our kids grow up to fast. Case in point: my bonus daughter is coming to the end of her high school athletic career.

When I watch my son Connor play his sports, I am either sitting with my wife or in a spot where I am alone. I do not sit with or near my former spouse. My wife has grown where she can sit not only by her former husband but his wife and his parents. There are some ex's who can sit together at events: I am not one of those.

On this Parenting Tip Tuesday episode, I want to let you know that it is okay to do what feels comfortable, not what the so-called "experts" tell you what you have to do.

I needed to find an email and phone number of one of the parents from the hockey team Connor plays for. As I was looking at the names, it hit me that possibly there are divorced and blended families that I was not aware of. Yes, maybe some of the mom's did not change their last name like my wife.

There are times when I do mom and dad at the games, but there are times when you only see one of them.

Many years ago, I was once interviewed on a podcast, and the host asked if "blended families are the new norm?" My answer then and now is still the same: "yes."

Do you sit near your former spouse? I would love to hear your answer. Please email me:

7 Ways To Think About Your Legacy

Have you thought of what your kids will say after you have passed? What will they say to their children about you even years after you are at your resting place (be it upstairs or downstairs, get my drift) 

 

This was a conversation I had with a young man named "Bryan" who's father had passed away about two years ago. He was telling me how much he missed his dad, who was a mentor to Bryan. The fun times that they had together. The lessons Bryan learned because of the time he spent with his dad.

 

After speaking to Bryan, I really started to think about what my son will say to his friends about me when I pass away. I really want to know what my bonus daughters Betsy and Becca will say about me too. 

 

Do you even think about your legacy? Do you care?

I have a friend named "Lawrence" (not his real name) who has three kids. Lawrence recently broke up with his girlfriend, and for the first time in years, he is single. All he would fixate is not having a girlfriend. Several of us told him to focus on his kids and himself. Do you think deep down his kids care if he has a girlfriend or not? They want to spend time with their dad. Again, after speaking with Lawrence, I'm sad to say that I really do not feel he understood that he needed to make his kids a higher priority. What legacy is he going to end up with?

 

Have you really sat down to think of what your legacy is? Think about it for a moment. What is your relationship like with just not your kid's but your circle of influence?

 

Do you care what others will say about you after you have moved on? I really thought about this after speaking with Bryan. His face would light up as he talked about his dad. I truly wanted to cry.

 

As much as I do tell my wife Ann that I do not think about if a person likes me or not: I do care about how I treated them. Does that make sense?

 

For me, I do not feel that I have been a good enough role model for my family. Currently, I have struggled with my weight, hate my day job, and I feel my depression is getting worse. This is NOT how you create a positive legacy. So, how does someone create a lasting legacy?

 

I want to share with you my seven ideas to create a better legacy. The order is irrelevant: it's about the execution.

  1. When I was in grade school, and our class had a field trip to the Chicago area, my dad would volunteer as a chaperone. How cool is it to not only hang out with your dad but to show him off as only a child can. You have that sense of pride of "this is my dad." I correctly recall a trip to one of the Chicago newspapers and my dad meeting us in front of the building since he lived downtown at the time. It was a memory that is tattooed on my brain. I took that life lesson, and when I became a dad, I would do my best to chaperone as many class trips when my son Connor was in grade school. The moral of this story is: step up and sit on a school bus with a group of screaming kids.
  2. Do you like the movie "Frozen?" You might not, but guess what, your kids might. My friend and one heck of a dad, James Lopez, who runs a business called "Cool4dads.com. " He told me recently that he received free tickets for a Frozen event that his youngest son wanted to attend. Did James say to his son "no" because this was something that dad did not want to do? Heck no! So the point here is to do things that your kids want to do. 
  3. I mentioned that one of my struggles is my weight. We parents really need to think about our health. Our kids will mirror both good and bad habits. All of our kids are either in a sport, or they go to the gym. Or both. In my first book, "25 Tips for Divorced Dads," I mentioned that being physically fit is vital. You want to be on the planet for a long time. For me, in the past, the "Wonder Twins" (this is what we call my son and his bonus sister because they really could be blood-related) and I would go to the gym and shoot hoops. What activity can you do with your kids? Even if it hopscotch
  4. Having open and honest communication. Also, if you are not living in the same house as your kids, you should be talking daily to them. At times it could be a text message to just say "hi" or "I love you." However, you might need to have real conversations. I do not mean the standard "hows your day?" You already know that answer. Have you had "the talk?" What about talking about drugs? My son asked me many years ago if I had ever done drugs? I was candid with him and told him what my experience was back in the college days. One more thing, don't just talk to your kids: listen more than speaking.
  5. There will be times, and I know it can be hard to do, but you will need to admit when you are wrong. This goes beyond acknowledging to your kids. This could be even your former spouse. Part of your legacy is what your character is seen by others. Does that make sense? People's B.S detector will know when you are lying to them. If you do not tell the truth in front of your kids and they know you are not telling the truth: what does that say about your morel fiber? 
  6. It is okay to fail. It is even better if you fail in front of your kids. Let us take this up a notch and say let your kids fail too. When my son Connor and I would go to the local ice rink and work on some hockey drills, I hated to fall. After his games, when we would drive back home, he and I would talk about the positives and negatives: even if the team had won. Failure can be such a great learning tool. Do not let your ego get the best of you. Failing is part of life. Like it or not. 
  7. You might roll your eyes when you read this one, but this is in my mind important for your legacy. Here we go: make your bed every day. Yes! What does this have to do with legacy? If your kids see that you are making your bed consistently, then you are now creating a positive habit. They, too, might (not right away) will build on positive habits. I will admit that neither of the Wonder Twins makes their bed when they are at our house, but in my mind, it is still a visual that one day will make sense to them. After my divorce is when I started to make my bed each day. To the point, I would do it when I was out of work, and it was a day I was not even leaving the house. When I am doing a speaking engagement, I have always worn a tie. When I coached hockey, I wore a tie. Because my son has seen me in a tie after all of these years: guess who wears a tie to his hockey games?

Yes, I can keep going, but you are a smart person, so I know you understand where this is all going. We parents are FAR from being perfect. Try being a bonus parent: even more laborious. 

 

As I said at the start of the piece: do you think of your legacy? After talking with Bryan, it really did hit me of where I can improve as both being a man and a dad. For me, I want to have more meaningful conversations with the Wonder Twins. I want to be better at (if they are open to it), offering life advice. Being honest with my mistakes so they can learn from them.

 

Overall we parents should remember that our kids are watching us and listening to us. Yes, the old saying talking about our actions speak louder then words are truth. 

My plea to you is that going forward, you will think more about your actions because when you are long gone from this world, wouldn't you want your kids to say kind things about you? Especially at your final resting place. Again either up or down.

What Are Divorced Men Thinking: A Manly Question While in a Lyft.

 

I took two Lyft rides and had great conversations in both. I am going to talk about the first one here and will save the other with "Bob" for a later episode.

My first ride was with "Sid," and I had a deep feeling with our conversation that he was struggling. Sid mentioned to me that he had been divorced for two years. We first started to talk about just getting through the divorce, and then we talked about staying connected with his kids. Then he asked a doozie of a question.

I was not sure where our conversation was about to go? I was even nervous but me, being an open book I was ready. Or was I?

 

Sid phrased the question in an exciting way and knowing that English is not his first language, the way he phrased it did make sense.  What he said was, "can I ask you a manly question?" In the back of my mind, I was hoping that it was not going to be a sexual question. For example, of having your new "friend" over your place but the kids are there too. Again, that is what landed in my head as far as a manly question.

 

The question was about how to handle when you are around your former and their significant other?

 

FEW! I can definitely handle this one.

 

On this Parenting Tip Tuesday podcast, I will talk about what my answer was and what I have gone through even most recently.

 

I want to also share with you my calendar because I want to help more of you when it comes to divorce, dating after divorce, and creating a blended family. Please use this link to my calendar for a free one on one introduction.

Enjoy this episode, and now if you will excuse me, my coffee is getting cold.

Bringing People Together

Our guest today has been helping running the City Dads Group for the past 11 years.

A little about him and how to find him on the social:

Matt is the co-founder of City Dads Group, a nationwide community of dads navigating fatherhood together. He also hosts the Modern Dads Podcast, a show for dads and moms engaged in the trials and tribulations of parenthood. He lives with his wife and two boys in New York City.
 
Social Media:
Twitter: https://twitter.com/schnei95
Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/schnei95/
 
Matt and I had some great conversations during this episode and we talk about how he realized the importance of connecting with the mommy bloggers and you will hear why he made sure to have conversations with them.
 
We also mentioned a dad named James. You can find him on Instagram @fatherhoodislit. James is a wonderful dad and his videos won't disappoint.
 
With the world we currently live in, Matt brought up a point of why we need human interaction and essentially putting our phones down and having face to face conversations.
 
Finally, I know many of our guests and I have mentioned that we men are still lacking in the department of asking for help. Matt and I also bring this topic up.
 
Please have a look at his organization and for me, my biggest take away is to get involved with City Dads Group. Will you?

LET'S DO THAT PODCAST

 

Welcome to this weeks Blending The Family podcast. Are you doing good?

I am super pumped to share with you this episode. My guest is Lauren Raymond and she reached out to me on Linkedin. She asked me if I would answer questions that dealt with marriage and parenting. I said to Lauren why don't we record this and make it a podcast. She agreed.

Her questions that she asked me were the first time I heard them. I was 100 percent honest and the questions really started to make me think as both a parent and a husband. I hope they make you think as well.

Who is Lauren?

Lauren Aleza Raymond is an elementary educator and founder of  Daily Joy LLC where she privately coaches parents to build JOYFUL homes where everyone feels loved, heard, and nurtured so that their house can truly be a sanctuary of peace. Her program is based on creating joy in 3 areas: self, relationships, and parenting. Together this creates joyful homes.   

 

She resides in the Colorado mountains with her husband, two children, and a dog.  She loves being active outside with her friends and family hiking, biking, skiing, paddle boarding, gardening, camping and loves to read a good book.

I had to ask the question.

My son Connor and I were headed to his hockey game when I asked him a question that has been on my mind for a long time.

You too should ask the question.

Do you know what your kids think of you as a parent? I asked.

 

My goal (no pun intended) is to ask our kids and Connor was the first I asked. I simply said, "am I a good dad?" He was a bit thrown off the question and I know he was not ready for a question of this magnitude: but I wanted to ask. 

I believe we should ask our kids and not just once but at least once a quarter. 

 

Please let me know if you ask the question and email me, please.

When you are the bonus (step) parent it is not always ever easy. I feel that I am the invisible parent. That I do not matter.

 

Do you feel that way too?

 

On this episode I just needed to ask if you are feeling the same way as I do?

HOW ARE YOU MY FRIEND?

 

Im so excited to have one of my dearest friends on the podcast. Denise has been mentioned on this podcast in the past as one of my mentors.

 

She is here to talk about our friendship because she sent me a text two months ago and I was very confused of why she sent it.

In these mature years I have not had many friends and not sure if it is because of being more and more of an introvert?

 

Denise is my hero because she built a business from the ground up and I struggle with trying something like that.

 

We start off with the text:

Hi!!

 

On this episode we have Rock, well not THE Rock but Rock Thomas. You can find him at:

Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rock-thomas-8bb146b

I did get a sort of request of a business wanting to do a partnership with the podcast. They would not give me a discount code for YOU to buy their stuff. But I still mention them on the podcast. Why? To see if we can get you the listener to still buy something to prove them wrong about not sending US a discount code.

 

This past week was a awesome time. I had pretty much a whole week with my son Connor. This was a rare opportunity and I had to tell you on the podcast.

 

Rock Thomas is a very cool guy and was so blessed that he would come onto the podcast. Before you listen check out his Goal Cast video. This is where I learned about him. I cried watching this video.

 

We get into some great topics on this episode and I am proud of this one.

 

  • ASK
  • Rock’s Top Accomplishment
  • Visualization
  • 4 Step Process To Build Self Confidence
  • Triple E

 

Rock has launched a podcast and has some very powerful messages to share with you.

First a big hello to the people I keep meeting in the Vancouver airport.

 

 

On this episode I want to talk to you about a stat I heard at church this past weekend. 4 out of 10 dad's do not feel that hey are good dad's. 

That is very sad.

 

How can we help each other to get this number to where more men feel as though they are GREAT dad's?

I really feel that I am not a good dad but what my son Connor wrote in the card he gave me for Father's Day opened my eyes up.

 

Call your dad or another dad to let them know that they are a GREAT dad.

 

P.s New blog post are up!

Welcome to the second episode of this new strange and well juvenile podcast. We are calling it still “2 Stupid Freaking Guys”.

You have a better idea??

 

We talk right off the bat about the divorce John is currently going through. One word on that “HALF”!

 

He has had a good attitude about this situation and that leads into a talk about ADD/ADHD. According to John’s diagnosis I have ADD.

 

 Then we also have to talk about our old radio stories. Because of a trip back to Chicago I was anointed a nick name that, well I still HATE.

 

I am in the process of putting this new podcast onto its own platform so please checkout my Instagram and Twitter feed to learn more.
