Have you ever felt inadequate, overwhelmed, or guilty in trying to balance it all? Perhaps you’ve let these negative feelings unconsciously define you. If you can relate, then you are going to love today’s episode!
Today, Mary is joined by popular podcast host of “Surviving Sarah,” writer, and cheerleader for moms everywhere - Sarah Bragg- as the two dig deep into Sarah’s new book “A Mother’s Guide to Raising Herself: What Parenting Taught Me About Life, Faith, and Myself.” Through vulnerable and relatable stories, Sarah shares her realization that the things she wanted for her daughters, (like self-worth, body positivity, tenacity) she did not yet possess herself. This realization led her on a humbling yet beautiful journey to raising herself alongside raising her girls.
On today’s episode Mary and Sarah dive into what it means to be a recovering perfectionist as it relates to motherhood; discuss the concept of fitting in versus actually belonging; and the importance of ‘presence’ in the lives of those around you.
After listening, you will be challenged to give yourself permission to find the courage to show up as yourself; be equipped to wrestle with how purpose, work, and calling all fit together; and be ready to replace ‘mom culture thinking’ with a “sometimes 3rd place is enough” mentality.
If you are ready to find your sense of worth and stop attaching happiness to the extraordinary, then you will not want to miss today’s powerful and insightful episode!
