    What is one habit or belief you feel is helping you become the person you want to be, and how did you develop it?

    What is one habit or belief you feel is helping you become the person you want to be, and how did you develop it?

    As we create and move through our lives as mothers, we often do so with filters and boundaries built up over years and years of beliefs and habits. What we expect, how we speak to and see ourselves, how we connect, react, butter our toast.



    Beliefs about who we are-- what parts of us are unworthy of feeling okay about. What success means, what makes us valuable. From the biggest questions of whether or not God or the universe has meaning or awareness of us, to the scientific and medical sureties of our day, to the deciding to reject or rescript the voice in our own head-- our beliefs root and filter our reality, and our awareness and confrontation of them is life-changing.



    They are such a part of us, so familiar to us and how we experience our lives, it can be hard and disorienting to even pull them off long enough to turn them over a few times in our hands. This idea, though by no means new, is one that is worth repeating and rethinking over and over again.

    Ep 5 How does where you live/have lived influence how you mother?

    The environments in which we mother, and learn to mother, are not static, nor are they merely physical.

    What is something you used to believe, that you have chosen to let go of? And what has that changed?

    What is something you used to believe, that you have chosen to let go of? And what has that changed?

    How has your Motherhood influenced your passions, and how have your passions influenced your Motherhood?

    How has your Motherhood influenced your passions, and how have your passions influenced your Motherhood?

    Sometimes, either subconsciously or not, we see motherhood and mothering as falling within some pre-decided boundaries, some easier-to-categorize definition or short list of truths. When in reality, motherhood is humans, living lives. And it is as fascinating and complex and impossible to bound in as life itself.



    In this episode we listen to women reflect on and share how what they are passionate about has influenced how they mother, and how their Motherhood has influenced their passions.
