A Teachable Mom is about celebrating my wise and outspoken daughters and discovering my voice as a woman, writer, wife and mother.
I’m imperfectly supporting my girls in being big, bold and colorful, traits I struggle with myself. Through them, I’m learning about joy and freedom while confronting my own insecurities. As a dear friend says, I’m “putting on my big girl pants” and playing big.
Like many parents, I desperately want my girls to grow up loving, honoring and speaking up for themselves and asking for what they want, no matter what anyone else thinks or feels about them, including me.
I want them to be free of people pleasing, perfectionism, comparison and negative thinking; traits that I am recovering from in real time and have been well-honed in my family for generations. It’s time for my girls to have some new issues to explore in future therapy sessions!
I want big, expansive worlds for them. And when I say “them” I realize I mean for me.
I’m learning to own my bigness and believe I’m a strong, powerful woman.
I want to model a solid sense of self for my girls. And guess what? I’m still learning, sometimes first, sometimes along side them, always one baby step at a time.
In addition to being a full-time mom, I’m a former marketing & PR exec and communications trainer and an aspiring children’s book co-author. Stay tuned!
