Many years ago, I started with self-care. At the time, it was the only way I could see my way out of where I was: deep in mamahood. But it was also the only answer there was. We didn't understand why we felt the way we did as women and mothers. Back then, we thought the answer was a massage or a yoga class or a pedicure. An uninterrupted shower even.
And yes, at the time, it was a start.
But more than a decade into this deep dive into the transition and rising of motherhood, I know it's time to be so much louder and clearer: this isn't about self-care anymore.
2020 showed us what the world expects from mothers, and it doesn't work. And no massage or pedicure is going to change that. It's time for a complete redefining of what being a mama and a woman really is…one mama at a time.
May this episode be your invitation and calling to demand something different this year. And please join us on Sunday 21st February at 8pm AEDT for an insight into how we can do this – right now. Even when we still don't get an uninterrupted shower!
