Do you want to know what hurts my heart more than almost anything? It’s really a simple answer. I hate when a mom has a desperate desire to stay home with her children but circumstances make it a no go. Whether the reason is financial, emotional, or a spouse who won’t agree this mom is left feeling trapped going to work. I want to say something now before I get a million e-mails, this is not referring to the moms who love to work. I am not judging that at all. However, for a mom who doesn’t want to work, it really can feel like a trap.
When my daughter was born I was not prepared at all for the road motherhood set me on. I had a lot of plans, ideas, and dreams. A lot of it fell short of my expectations and I struggled. I adored my daughter but I was in a bad place. There were a few people who prioritized creating a new mom safe space and I will be forever grateful.
Creating a New Mom Safe Space
I have started hosting a really fun show on YouTube and Facebook sharing real talk for real moms from real moms. I will link all of the episodes at the bottom of this post. I wanted to take a minute though and answer the questions I normally ask my guests. I wanted to answer in this format so that moms know where I stand as the host of this show. My heart is to open the door for more real talk for real moms!
