    The Parents Who Podcast Episode 71 | The Ugly Truth About Busyness

    The Parents Who Podcast Episode 71 | The Ugly Truth About Busyness

    I saw a photo of one of my friends on the Facebook yesterday.

    She was happily swimming in the pool with her family on vacation.

    No one was crying. No one was whining. Everyone had their goggles, and there wasn’t any fighting over who was going to be Marco and who would be Polo. 

    I immediately wondered what kind of magic sauce she had access to that I had missed the line for.

    How was she back to pre-pregnancy weight so easily?

    How was it that all the kids were so well-behaved?

    How do you go on vacation with young kids and not have any stress?!

    I don’t know about you, but I find myself caught up in this game of comparison more than I would like to admit.

    Even though I know better, I still do it sometimes.

    No one’s life is perfect.

    And in fact, there is someone out there right now who thinks you have it all together!

    Instead of comparing, we have to learn more self-compassion, and focus on more realistic expecations.

    Listen today to hear:



    *

    all the ways I compare myself to other moms



    *

    what to do instead of comparing – comparing almost never lead to any good feelings

    The Parents Who Podcast Episode 70 Feeling Not Enough – It Never Ends, Unless…

    The Parents Who Podcast Episode 70 Feeling Not Enough – It Never Ends, Unless…

    Do you ever feel like you’re going faster than you really want to go?  Maybe you feel like you have to prove how good you are or how generous you are or how capable you are.

    I have spent a lot of time seeking the approval of others. 

    I’ve entered the competition of comparing my life with others.

    I competed, and it felt…awful. 

    Approval-seeking, trying to keep up, constantly competing – it doesn’t feel good. 

    But it is tempting. 

    It’s tempting to try and do what everyone else is doing and to make crazy sacrifices to get there. 

    I’ve sacrificed my health many times in service to trying to keep up. 

    I’ve had to learn the hard way that I am enough. 

    I don’t have to compete. 

    I don’t have to fit in. 

    I don’t even want to fit in. 

    I want to belong. 

    I want to just be. 

    If today you are wondering if you are enough, let me assure you that you are. 

    You don’t have to add another damn task or piece of clothing or lose more weight – you are enough right now. 

    I know you don’t believe me though (I didn’t believe it either) so today’s episode is for you.

    The Parents Who Podcast Episode 68 | Take the Stress Out of Marriage (How I took Mine from Separation to Connection)

    The Parents Who Podcast Episode 68 | Take the Stress Out of Marriage (How I took Mine from Separation to Connection)

    I didn’t know until just a few years ago that I am allowed to prioritize my marriage over my kids.

    Yeah.

    It’s true. 

    No one told me that though so I thought it went

    1. kids, 2. marriage, 3. me.

    I knew I needed to make an intentional effort to step away from the steering wheel, the grocery cart, laptop and laundry room to connect with him, but I was always too tired. And honestly, at the end of the day, I didn’t want anyone touching me or wanting anything else from me AT ALL.

    I just wanted to put on some HGTV, curl up on the couch, and veg.

    I figured this was just a season and eventually when the kids were older we’d have more time and energy for our marriage.

    Cut to having older kids, dates still not happening, and marriage only getting worse.

    Chris and I have been through some very dark places.

    Separation. Divorce talk. Fights that would reality TV to shame.

    Grudges. Resentment. Jealously. Miscommunication.

    You name it.

    No one’s marriage is perfect. No matter how they act of what they tell you.

    Most people had no idea what was going on with Chris and I.

    We made the choice to fight for our marriage.

    Three magical words that can help you avoid almost any argument or misunderstanding

    Two great alternatives to date night

    How to find the energy and time for dates

    The Parents Who Podcast Episode 66 | Mental Health Days Are B.S.

    The other day, instead of driving to work, I started driving to a random nail salon. 

    I didn’t even feel like it was me driving the car.

    I have no idea what came over me.

    I took a gut detour.

    Instead of working, I ended up spending the entire day on that annoyingly dirty little word – self care.

    I took a mental health day.

    For me, mental health days are B.S.

    Listen today to hear:



    *

    where I ended up going instead of work (hint-there are many drinks included)



    *

    all the should’s I had to ban in order to have a mental health day



    *

    why I probably won’t take another mental health day until my gut forces me to
