    Becoming a Mother: The Birth of a Mother

    Becoming a Mother: The Birth of a Mother

    This series is for all of my new moms, moms-to-be, and the curious-about-motherhood types. We are talking about becoming a mother. It’s going to be beautiful, it’s going to be raw, and above all, it is going to be real.

    We are kicking off this series by talking about the birth of a mother. You are giving birth to your baby but also a new identity for yourself - a new life on both accounts. There is so much focus on the baby, but not enough on the mother. In this series, we are giving much-needed focus to mothers.

    Upcoming episodes:
    Pregnancy, Labor, and Delivery
    The Postpartum Period
    Embracing Motherhood

    Continued Personal Growth in New Year's Resolutions

    Continued Personal Growth in New Year's Resolutions

    I’m here to introduce you to a new concept for your New Year resolutions:  continued personal growth. Setting goals throughout the year instead of just once a year.

    A resolution is just a promise that you make to better yourself or your life. So, why does this need to be done just once a year? We could all benefit from reflecting on our lives, habits, and choices far more than once a year! This keeps you accountable.

    In today's episode, we talk about setting a resolution for each month and allowing your goals to evolve with your life.

    The End of 2020

    The End of 2020

    Before we can talk about moving forward, we must first talk about letting go.

    Today’s episode was supposed to be about New Year's resolutions and was intended to inspire change in your life. I kept trying to record that episode and had to keep stopping myself. Something in me kept gravitating towards the theme of letting go instead of moving forward. It makes sense though, you can’t move forward without first letting go. I mean, you can, but is it really in your best interest to keep plowing forth with all of that extra baggage? Probably not. I stopped recording and immediately pivoted. Because 2020 has taught us all about pivoting right? In this episode, we are talking about everything we need to let go as we say goodbye to 2020.
