Happy Tuesday, friends!!

Today, I start us off with 25 “Momfessions”, because it’s so important to me that you don’t feel like I have all of the answers, and, most of all, that you don’t feel alone!

I also talk about 5 things I’ve learned over the last few years that make for a little less burnout, and a little more, I love my kids. The 5 brain hacks for sustainable parenting are:

  1. Asking for help doesn’t mean you lack the necessary qualifications.
  2. In fact, you are uniquely and exactly qualified.
  3. Martyrdom isn’t required;
  4. But sacrifice is.
  5. Be a safe space for your kids (It’s all about the relationship).

Episode One-Liner: Becoming a parent is an ongoing journey, but you know the right path to take, and you don’t have to take it alone.

Episode Action Item: Take a few minutes this week to pray, ponder, or journal about your calling as a parent. What one thing can you focus on to help you be your best self for the people that you love and to help you develop more resilience as a parent? What one thing can you do now to do yourself a favor in the future? Sometimes the thought work is the hardest part 😉.

  1. Another great topic and discussion. Yes martyrdom isn’t required in parenting and sacrifices shouldn’t be confused with killing oneself. seek help when needed and lend one when possible. ❤️ thank you for always practicing and encouraging mindful parenting.

    1. Thank you for sharing, Michelle ❤️. I do the same thing. I never want to feel like an inconvenience. But the funny thing is, when other people ask me for help I don’t consider them an inconvenience at all!
