One of the biggest questions I get about marriage is this: How can I make peace with the fact that my partner gets to go off to work while I stay home with the children.
In my last workshop, this was the No. 1 question that women voted on — clearly this is a source of angst.
And, by the way, the women saying this is a significant source of resentment also admit that their partners are also working hard and doing what they have to do.
This is not about the fact that one is working and one is staying home.
This is about finding peace of mind in our choices in our marriages, and in raising children.
Finding peace of mind is about changing out mindset that currently centers around lack and scarcity into one of abundance and gratitude — something we’ll be doing a lot of in my upcoming online community class, ReKindle.
After all, ReKindle is about finding space and energy to put the self-care back into your marriage — just like it used to be in the early days.
In this podcast, I talk about finding a sense of peace in marriage and much more as I take a step back to answer SOME of the many questions asked in the recent workshop forum.
Peace always — always — begins with me.
