Don't Lose Your Balance with Mallory Durrick is a journey about the life of one woman and the trials and tribulations along the way. It's scripted and unscripted. It shares the bumps, the falls, falling from grace, losing balance and finding her way back after two decades of chaos and confusion. It's not always pretty and often times it's upsetting but if you listen you may just see yourself in a little bit of it all!

On this 52nd episode of Don't Lose Your Balance, the last episode of Season 1, I reflect on the last year and the journey I have been on to find my way to Balance by sharing my life on the Internet. Sharing openly and honestly, from my healthiest perspective, I hope you'll enjoy this season's finale.
Join me on the 50th episode of Don't Lose Your Balance as I share my perspective about being Unique in a noisy world. How your own beliefs about your uniqueness will give you the courage to share your story. Viewing yourself as a unique individual is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and I encourage everyone to do so and find their voice. Listen in.
In today's episode I'm talking about perspective. How very different, one person's perspective is from another, even when the situation is the same. It's not about skewing the truth or invalidating someone else's reality. It's more so about how the perspective of one person to another, even one's own perspective can be different for so many reasons.
In today's episode I'm reflecting on the sad reality of the feelings of abandonment. How it was for me as a child and perhaps how it may have been for others that I loved. This is one of my more compelling episodes and painful because there isn't much I can do other than accept the truths and hopefully apologize and move forward. Listen in.
In today's episode I'm talking about Change. It is indeed the only thing permanent in life and I also recognize the importance of change for growth and development. I do however feel that change can be done purposively. Knowing where I want to be in life, means I need to make the right choices and work to get there. Conversely, I know that poor choices might not always have an immediate impact but might be realized much l...
Prompted through a conversation we had this morning on Clubhouse, toxicity is different than negativity. Mostly because you can have too much of a good thing, which is toxic, and too much of a bad thing, which is toxic and negative. Balance is what I seek and despite some things being labeled as good, they can also be toxic for me personally. This is different than negative. Calling it like you see it can actual be a positive thing...
In today's episode I'm talking about Milestones. As I reflect on the last year, these milestones that I hit, like gratitude, this podcast and also achieving the goals I set forth for myself a year ago, I talk about them with such joy and happiness. I know we all hit different milestones in our lifetime, but this is one year, one great year full of incredible milestones I'm very proud to share.
In today's episode I'm talking about Pain. Since I'm sharing from a scar and not from a wound, I believe I've learned to find better ways to manage pain differently than the ways I've learned in the past. I cannot avoid pain in life, it's a natural part of living. But by recognizing the pain, seeing it for what it is - I can actually confront and move through my pain more effectively. Rather than avoid...
In today's episode I'm talking about Clubhouse. Clubhouse is an audio only app made for iPhone and Android. It's a place to learn, listen, socialize, build friendships, grow your business and so much more. I discovered and joined Clubhouse in January of 2021 and what I learned and how it's helped me grow is so much more than I could ever imagine. Listen today to learn about Clubhouse and how it actually changed ...
In today's episode I'm talking about Goals. We set goals for ourselves all the time. What does that look like? Is it achievable and attainable? Is it unrealistic or well within reach? I remember the goal I set years ago to achieve and maintain sobriety. I have accomplished and continue to enjoy the benefits of this goal. It's a fantastic feeling and something I'm very proud of myself for accomplishing. Every day...
In today's episode I was originally going to talk about projections. Then it occurred to me it's really about triggers and setbacks. We all face them at one point or another in our lifetime. It's really about the coping skills that we need to develop when we're healthy, to prevent the old patterns and recognize the familiarity of the 'dance.' This ultimately helps us change the narrative. Not to preven...
In today's episode I am talking about confidence. I reflect on my lack of confidence in my youth. I also recognize how this podcast has helped me to develop my skill set, my ability to speak, and how to listen to others. I share my experiences, openly and honestly and as a result, have developed a sense of self-worth and confidence for which I am very grateful.
In today's episode I am talking about Clarity. Most specifically about how I got clear when I removed the toxicity out of my life, got real and true, and realized that living a healthy and balanced life was possible. It wasn't going to happen overnight, but when I got clear about what I wanted, needed, and most of all, what I had to do ... sobriety provided clarity!
In today's episode I am talking about Community. In the last several years, if not decade, I found myself seeking out online communities to learn, grow, be better as an artist, designer, strategist or even a human being. From Facebook to Instagram to Clubhouse, I cover it all and share how I felt less alone, especially during a Pandemic, and found my most comfortable communities around the globe and on a variety of apps.
In today's episode I am talking about hope. What do you hope for? What is the driver of "hope" in your life today? What do you hope to achieve, hope to become, hope to do this year? Most of all, what are the sources of hope in your life? My life. Let's talk about Hope!
In today's episode I am talking about humility. It was a topic during today's story and prompt in the Gratitude room on Clubhouse and I have to say, humility and compassion is something we should all be very aware of as human beings. Check in with yourself ... are you humble? Who do you know that is, and how can they show you ways, to be an even better version of yourself?
In today's episode I am talking about general human kindness. Likely more aligned with a rant, I reflect on the past and also the present about how people should check-in with themselves, hit the pause button, and realize that kindness should be a given and not something out of reach.
My favorite line: In a world where you can be anything, be kind.
Today, I'm talking about the power of rituals. Having rituals can provide me with a sense of productivity, accomplishment, peace and comfort. It never occurred to me that having rituals could bring me to a place of balance. Feeling grateful for the rituals that I've come to look forward to in my life, brings me joy. And I hope for everyone, that happens too.
Today, I'm talking about growth. Whether it is personal growth or professional growth, it's my intent to look back and recognize and honor the choices I've made that helped me grow as an individual.
It wasn't always easy and at times it was downright gut wrenching, but I am grateful to have come out the other end a happier and healthier person. I continue on this journey and hope you will too.
