Becoming a mother isn’t just a one time thing, it’s an ongoing process. Who you are and how you mother is always changing in response to the growth of your children. Just like the changing of the seasons, what our children need from us ebbs and flows.
Today’s episode is all about how to be present for the season you are in, so that you can transition from one season to the next without feeling regret. We live in an age of digital distraction and intensive mothering – so the guilt is real!
But you might just find that you’re more present for your kids than you realise and I share why not being present can be a very good thing for your kids.
As always, this episode is told from my own perspective, based on my experience and where I am in my own motherhood journey. I hope you see yourself in my story too – and know that you are not alone.
I’ve also got a beautiful gift for you, 3 issues of my digital minimalist lifestyle magazine – Maximizer! It’s filled with articles, recipes and thoughtful topics about minimalism, sustainability, slow living, simplifying and book recommendations.
I’m so proud of this magazine and I’m excited to share it with you – 6 years after I created it, it’s still relevant!
