Join Ms Marnie on a real AF ride into how we discover our true self in all her badass glory so we can shine as bright as we like with zero F's given!

    Let's talk about the stories we make up as children...

    Let's talk about the stories we make up as children...

    Arrrright so you know how I warned you it was gon' get a lil deep. Well time to head down the rabbit hole me thinks.
    In today's episode I share a mega awakening I whilst escaping from my mumlife breakdown when Riv was just under a year old. It has to do with a story that I had been telling myself (and trying to compensate for) since I was six years old. I realised that this story that I made up almost 30 years ago has been the root cause for so much of my internal suffering over my life and also that simmering discontent I have felt for much of my adult life no matter how "successful" I became or the relationships I had seemed to be.
    These realisations had to to with what people call a "core limiting belief" which I explain more about in the episode and then also the counter to that - which I know as a "winning formula".
    Understanding where these stories and the resulting patterns of behaviour came from, and why as a 6 year old girl it made TOTAL sense to create them, has really fucking helped me understand MYSELF and have compassion for myself AND a feeling that now as an adult I can gently let those stories go and not be a slave to them anymore.
    If you have any questions about ideas I bring up in the epsiode or would like to share your own revelations I would LOVE to hear from you on holla@msmarnie.com

    The greatest gift we can give to our family is learning to know and love ourselves fully - with Zoe Blaskey

    The greatest gift we can give to our family is learning to know and love ourselves fully - with Zoe Blaskey

    Guyzzz I am so incredibly excited to bring you the amazing chat I had with Zoe Blaskey who is the host of the Motherkind Podcast, which has honestly been SUCH a guiding light for me over my Mamahood journey.
    Zoe has been on her own rollercoaster ride of figuring out the F she really is for over 12 years since a breakdown/breakthrough she had at the age of 23. Since then she's become a mum to two beautiful girls Jessie who is 4 and Rose who is 5 months, she coaches Mums, and of course interviews incredible guests such as Gabor Mate, Dr Shefali and Glennon Doyle for her podcast.
    But the things I love most about Zoe is that she is SO freakin' passionate about helping women navigate motherhood by taking the journey BACK TO THEMSELVES.
    Today Zoe and I chat about:

    * How our childhood experiences and the pain of our parents can shape the masks we wear as adults
    * What it means to "wake up" and start to question everything about our lives and start the journey of uncovering true selves
    * Martyrdom and the f-ed up messages that sacrifice = love give to children and to mothers
    * What it means to our children when we walk this path of truly loving oursleves and living our truth
    * The true meaning of self-care (not the BS one sold to us by capitalist culture!)

    I hope you lurrrve this episode as much as I lurrrved chatting to Zoe. And if you've been living under a rock and haven't completely binged all of the episodes of the Motherkind podast then follow the link below and you are in for SUCH a treat
     
    You can also find Zoe through her instagram page https://www.instagram.com/motherkind_zoe/ (https://www.instagram.com/motherkind_zoe/) or through her website https://www.motherkind.co/ where she also has an amazing online course about giving the big ol' finger to perfectionism!
    If this episode gave you some lightbulb moments then I would LOVE to hear all about them! Hit me up on my instagram @msmarnie_is_here or leave a review with all the juicy goodness you squeezed from our chat

    Wine, Motherhood and Me - a cautionary tale

    Wine, Motherhood and Me - a cautionary tale

    I love wine! I love it so much that I've realised I need to sort out my relationship with it or else banish it from my life all together.
    Since becoming a Mum i've bought in hook, line and sinker to the Mum Life cliche of needing a wine to cope with the madness. And for a while, I fell in love with this idea. Shit it became part of what I thought made me me. The Mum who says "fuck it" we'll have wine for lunch coz YOLO. But I realised that all that wine drinking was really just masking this constant simmering feeling of disconnection, discontentment and being terrified of feeling out of control.
    I asked myself - If wine is the bandaid, then what is the wound? And it's been a bumpy ride babes, from figuring out what I was using wine to escape from and building my trust muscle with myself to falling straight back down the vino rabbit hole after a miscarriage and then really hitting my own personal low during these crazy covid days.
    Let's have the conversation right, it ain't easy and hell maybe you really dont' fucking want to BUT when we think of it as an enquiry into truly loving and trusting ourselves and feeling whole without needing anything to fill our void - then what could be the harm in that aye.

    How becoming a parent can force us to stop running and to face our true selves with Em Holdaway

    This week I have a SUPER special guest - the one and only Em from the Raising Ziggy Blog and the instagram page Officially Em.
    Em and I met a couple of years ago and instantly bonded over having two crazy AF sons & our passion for sharing our journies in the realest way possible. Today Em & I chat about how becoming a Mum was something that she never wanted for herself and what the journey looked like to questioning where this came from. She also shares the turning point for her and her partner AJ and the work that it took to get to that place.
    We also dig into our Mother's intuition and connecting to our innate knowing of what feels right for our family but also all the things that can challenge that sense of confindence in ourselves as mamas.
    Em shares the personal journey she has been on to work through her childhood trauma and how starting a Patreon page to be her safe space to share has been amazingly healing for her as well as the community she has found online.

    What if losing yourself could be the best thing that ever happens to you?

    What if losing yourself could be the best thing that ever happens to you?

    I know right, that sounds big, crazy, scary. BUT what if losing your "self", what if letting all of the masks that you've created to get by in life crumble, what if becoming a blank slate to rebuild yourself based on who you TRULY ARE, is exactly what you This was my experience.
    From the rock bottom that I had sunk to through my first year of motherhood I found a place where the parts of myself that had been buried over my life of being who I thought I should be lived. And from there, I started my business, I emerged more of mySELF than ever.
    So I invite you to sit with this question my friends.
    And if you haven't found Glennon Doyle yet then seriously babes get amongst her instagram @glennondoyle or her latest book UNTAMED just looks SO amazing! - Here she is chatting with Brene blimmin' Brown on her podcast (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/glennon-doyle-and-bren%C3%A9-on-untamed/id1494350511?i=1000469313957). It is SO GOOD!

    On losing myself in motherhood & the 12 words that snapped me out of my crippling anxiety

    On losing myself in motherhood & the 12 words that snapped me out of my crippling anxiety

    After all that oxytocin had worn off and the sleep deprivation had set in I started to find that confidence in myself as a mother crumble away. Today I talk about the first 6 months of River's life and how severe sleep deprivation and having my connection to my mama intuition slowly being chipped away at lead me to a harrowing journey with a sleep consultant which pushed me over the edge. This manifested for me in severe anxiety and I was existing day and night in that fight or flight mode with my monkey mind running the show. Until one day I had a lightbulb momement while listening to a podcast when the host said "You cannot think your way out of a prison made of thought". I also share how I disconnected I felt from my true self and how this lead to me to start my Statement T-shirt brand Eskimo Nell (now called Ms Marnie) to help women who felt lost reconnect with their true badass selves.

Sproutness ,

Hit the nail on the head!

I love wine too! And you totally got it right about not having to give it all up, just being mindful. I’ve been a bit reflective about my wine-ing since lockdown began, and keeping myself in check - would I like a wine? Or do I feel I NEED a wine? My first time listening to your podcast and now I’m going to go back to the beginning and listen to them all 🥰❤️
