When the inspiration for this episode hit me I got super excited. Typical.
But then I got a little worried. Not typical.
I worried that I would put an episode out there that told you all to “BUILD SOMETHING!” and you all would say:
Look, you work your butt off as it is. I SEE YOU. You hustle like a mother to get yourself and the kids out the door in the morning, to run a household, to reach your professional aspirations, to keep allll the balls in the air.
And now I’m gonna tell you to go build something on top of all that.
It’s a tall order.
It might be the key to your sanity, your joy, and your most ideal mental health.
You were born to create something - whether it’s creating a plentiful garden, a knitting circle, a community of like-minded women, a side hustle selling makeup, or an online business.
In creating something, you have the opportunity to tap into the truest parts of yourself. And this is crucial in motherhood. One of the most important parts of managing the motherload of motherhood is staying connected to YOU - and those parts of your identity that exist outside of marriage and motherhood that don’t have a ton of opportunity to SHINE unless you make the time to let them shine.
In this episode, I’m going to talk you through 4 reasons to build something outside of marriage and motherhood and 5 ways to get to building. Building something that you’re ridiculously proud of doesn’t have to consume a ton of time and energy. And chances are the thing you build will actually give you energy and motivation in other areas of your life.
