When we first dream of being a mother we have a vision in our heads of what that looks like.
Or at least some of us did. Many others do not have that luxury and end up pregnant without planning.
Either way, once we have a baby it is up to us to design motherhood how we want it to be — for ourselves, and our children.
Our actions, our words and how we show up in our family is our motherhood legacy.
And, this second — this very moment — is your parenting legacy.
And it might be exactly as you dreamed it was going to be. Or, it might not be anything close to what you thought. Either way, it is yours for the taking.
In the Abundant Mama Show this week, I’m sharing my next lesson in the 13 Parenting Lessons from 13 Years of Parenting series and this time I’m talking about a really important and heavy topic of making sure we’re tending to our emotional stuff.
We all come into parenting with some baggage. What we do with that baggage is up to us.
But what happens to that baggage affects our children greatly.
That’s why I’m talking about the importance of doing the work on yourself.
Also, I invite you to join me for my first Coffee Break with Shawn on Wednesday April 17 at 1 p.m. EST. These sessions will be held once a month. I’ll pick the Top 3 questions during the session and the rest will be saved for either future blog posts or mentioned during podcast episodes.
