This episode is for all the moms, soon-to-be moms, trying-to-be moms, unofficial moms, and women who live with motherly love in their souls. Selfishly though, this episode is for me.
EPISODE 17: When I started the Wonder Women Podcast, I never thought that the tables would be turned on me. Then, my dear friend and incredible colleague - Denise Hnytka - asked me to collaborate with her on her awesome podcast On A Mother Level... with me as the guest for both shows - a mom... and - ugh, why is it so hard to compliment ourselves sometimes? - a Wonder Woman.
Let me focus on that word "wonder" for a moment. I have wondered a lot the last few years where my life was going and how I was going to get through some of the personal and professional obstacles that have popped up - or, in some cases, gathered dust. I have wondered if/when it's appropriate to share certain sides of my life and how to be true to who I am, but also protective of my heart, my body, my soul. I have wondered if telling my story of becoming a mom would help or hurt others... or if it would help or hurt myself hearing my voice say it out loud.
I've decided to wonder no more, to embrace what makes me - and my life so far - wonderful. As with all the Wonder Women before me - and all the ones coming up in the future - I need to lead by example, dig deep, and give the next generation of the "Girl Power" Movement an important message: be you. Unapologetically, wonderful you.
This is my story of wondering, wanting, waiting to become a mom. Thank you for listening to my story.
