As mothers, finding compassionate in motherhood seems like it should be at the top of our list of to-dos.
But the truth is that as mothers we’re often giving and giving more than we’re receiving, receiving.
And that leads to a ton of resentment over time.
In this week’s latest Abundant Mama Show Podcast episode, I’m wrapping up a three-part series on Joy Actions based on The Book of Joy, by Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama and Doug Abrams.
The book is filled with tons of ideas around how to bring joy into a life full of suffering.
My three-part podcast series brings this all around to our work inside The Abundant Mama Project, which is based on an entire system of creating, living and implementing family wellness and motherhood wellness joy actions.
Compassion in motherhood can lead to joy.
When we lean into motherhood as if it’s only about doing for others, we forget that finding self-compassion is also equally as important — particularly when we’ve made a few mistakes in our roles as parents.
And, of course, there’s the act of finding compassion for our children’s mistakes, too.
In this week’s episode, I’m focusing on compassion and generosity and how they correspond to our joy quota.
