In this episode I talk about being a mother and having personal ambitions. Wanting something for you which feels worthwhile striving for and yet comes with a whole host of guilt about whether you are failing at motherhood because of your ambitions.
At 52 I no long worry what anyone thinks of me, my drive, or my ambition. I am unapologetically me, and by the way – I know I am a great mother!!
What I know now to be true has always been true, I just wish I could have told my younger self and spared myself years of unnecessary self-criticism and worry. So, allow me to gift you the wisdom I have gained over the past five decades.
Here are the highlights:
(01:41) My children didn’t need me anymore
(05:36) Find your tribe
(10:33) We set unrealistic benchmarks for ourselves
(15:43) Leave comparison at the door
(20:01) Practice self-compassion
