I am passionate about growing and learning about myself, the world, relating and parenting and over the years I have completed many years of study and devoured books offering all kinds of advice on a number of topics to help support me in my quest to be the best human I can be in this skin in this life.
That being said, all of this thirsting for knowledge and growth has lead me at times to not allow myself any space to be me. As a woman who wants to be happy, healthy and inspired to raise happy, independent, healthy, resilient kids, have a happy nourishing marriage and a fulfilling career, there are a lot of balls to keep in the air. I find in trying to manage all of these things my needs tend to drop to the back and as I get more depleted my ability to manage all of the other balls well diminishes.
I lose connection with myself and therefore, my ability to connect well with all of the important relationships in my life. I can become focused on getting things done and forget that really being with and connecting with my loved ones is what ultimately satisfies and nourishes me.
