Community and Communication in Parenting: Podcast Episodes
Hey Mamas! The 2 most recent The Thriving Mama podcast episodes have dropped and highlight topics we discuss frequently in The Thriving Mama program, the importance of community and also communication in parenting. Link: In Episode 2 I interview my good friend Cara Kelley who is an international speaker and group facilitator about finding your tribe as a mom and adult, ways to cultivate authenticity in groups and communities, and the health benefits of human connection. Episode 3 is very special because my friend and mentor Alexander and I discuss from the masculine perspective on how to support your wife and relationship during the transition of having a new baby, and the significance of communication, community, and flexibility during the journey. He shares powerful information for both Mom and Dads about nurturing and caring for the marriage during this transition, as well as ways you can support each other's needs while also nurturing the baby. I'd love to hear your feedback on the interviews and topics you'd like covered. I'd also be so very grateful if you would like, subscribe and leave a review. 🙏😊
Podcast Launch! The Thriving Mama 💖
Today I'm celebrating the launch of my podcast, The Thriving Mama! After almost 2 decades of watching moms struggle with issues like overwhelm, stress, low energy, anxiety, etc. I wanted to give them options to meet them where they're at and support them on their journey from just surviving to thriving in motherhood. The podcast will not only showcase experts and myself, but also real moms who want to share their journey from surviving to thriving at all stages of motherhood. This project has been decades in the making and truly represents the culmination of my work thus far and where I'm going in the future. Personally, it's taken me a while to get the to this place. For the longest time, I was comfortable being behind the scenes working on many big projects and products in the integrative and functional medicine world. But during the last several years, it felt wrong. Something inside was pushing me to live my purpose so I made some scary changes but I had many amazing people to support me along the way in so many different ways: as friends, teachers, mentors, and colleagues. So this is truly a coming out party for me. I would be so grateful if you could join me on this journey and support the podcast by listening, subscribing and leaving a review.🙏💖 In Episode 1 I share my own journey and struggles, and my passion for helping moms and families. The soon to be released episodes 2-4 have amazing interviews with Cara Kelley discussing the importance of community for health, Alexander Om on supporting your wife during the early stages of motherhood, and Maya Shetreat sharing so much knowledge on master plants and how they can support us on our healing journey.
Wanna have some fun??
Let's play a game! In the spirit of March Madness, let's have some fun! 🏀 When I do in person or group sessions where I want people to authentically connect, I'll do an activity or game to break the ice. Three Truths and a Lie is a fun one. I'll go first and I'd love for you all to guess. I'd also love for you to share your 3 truths and a lie too so we can get to know more about you! 🤗 A) I'm a direct descendant of Aaron Burr. B) I got accepted to Harvard. C) I'm a direct descendant of JFK. D) My great (x5) uncle led a multiracial unit of Union troops in the Civil War.

Can you relate??
Mamas, I created this meme today because I was trying to work this afternoon but my kids were not having it! Do you ever feel like this??? If you are on Instagram (@thrivemamatribe) you should check it out there because the music makes it 🤣🤣.
Moms, do you REALLY love yourself??
Moms, I have a difficult question for you. Do you love yourself? Really, truly love yourself? When you first see this, you might be thinking of course I do, silly. But now I'm going to challenge you. Go to a mirror and say I love you. What do you feel? Feel any icky feelings, twinges, pains, nausea, or anything else? If so, it means you don't love yourself as much as you think you do. I experience this in an unexpected way 2 weeks ago. During a class we were given an exercise to address self limiting beliefs and subconscious programming that might be holding us back. I couldn't think of anything, so decided I'd work on it later. The next morning I did something I NEVER do. During my work hours I responded to an Instagram notification and I typically don't do this during the day so I stay productive. When I clicked on Instagram a post showed up talking about unconditional love for your children and in that moment a thought struck me, and it was, "you love your kids more than you love yourself." In that moment I broke down crying because this was clearly something I needed to work on that my subconscious was making me aware of. I didn't think this was the case because of the emotional, trauma, and self growth work I've done over at the last 12 years, but especially the last 2. I've done so much work surrounding limiting beliefs, self worth and self love that I didn't think this was actually possible. And I KNOW I need to love myself just as much as I love my kids so I can show up and be the best version of me for them. So I reached into my toolbox and worked on the WHY behind that. And each day repeat that statement, "you love your kids more than you love yourself." I eventually got to the place where I didn't cry or even feel any of the negative, icky feelings. I actually felt GOOD when I said it. Then I said, "I love you," to myself in the mirror and felt amazing (that's never happened before). What makes me sad is that I see this everyday in my practice and out in the world. Moms that won't prioritize themselves because of those self limiting beliefs and subconscious programs.
