145. Balancing Family

“Families are like branches on a tree. We grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one.”

– Unknown

Balancing family… this can mean so many things:) As we get older and become individuals, family can be one of the toughest, and of course most important relationships to find balance in. Sometimes you just can’t and you need to do your own thing, boundaries, as discussed on many T&T podcasts are so real… but hopefully, with a little work, awareness, and respect, from all sides, you can find a balance and maintain a relationship that is like no other. I am so excited to welcome Samantha Porter Grinney to the T&T mic! Samantha hails from the high-end fashion world, is a fellow podcaster (Samantha’s West), mom, and is what I would consider, a master at balancing family- especially with a very out of the box family and lifestyle herself. Samantha shares her journey, her family setup, and how she manages it all, even when some situations might be super tough. This is a great one for everyone- because we can all get better at acceptance, boundaries, awareness, and intentional growth… for ourselves, our families, and the world around us!!

This one is a video, so be sure to check us out on You Tube!


Family and being an individual. Boundaries, awareness, respect, perspective, and acceptance. Going to therapy for those that don’t. Priorities, friendships, and letting go. Less is more. Tough conversations, honesty, and tequila. Doing what is best for you and letting some things play out.
