When Tovah and Rielly thought about starting a podcast they knew they would talk about parenting a lot. They didn’t realize it would take 43 episodes until they would finally have an episode entirely devoted to parenthood.
It only makes sense that parenthood comes up during a season about identity. There are so many different layers to consider with respect to how our identity will be impacted over time and all the different stages of parenthood. It is so easy to lose ourselves in parenthood.
As many parents, or anyone who has been around small children, would agree, parenthood in the beginning is all consuming physically, emotionally, and in literally every single way. Each level of parenthood is a massive transition – we don’t always realize that it is happening or what it is doing to us as individuals. It is so easy to forget about ourselves along the way.
We share our own experiences and then we talk about what we do to make sure we don’t lose ourselves forever. Join us for one of the longest, but most favorite, discussions.
GO BOLDLY HOMEWORK
- Whether or not you are a parent, this week take some time to consider major life transitions that you have experienced.
- Where have you struggled to maintain your sense of self? Where have you felt strong in your identity?
- Take some time to journal on those experiences, and reach out to your accountability partner to discuss.
- Finally, consider adding in daily mantras to your morning routine to help you set yourself up for a healthier mindset.
