This is a topic we can all relate to isn’t it? Asking for help. Brings up a lot in us. Consciously or not.
Calling on the village. It’s why I called this newest podcast series #Motherhood #LetsCreateAVillage.
It most certainly doesn’t take motherhood to need or benefit from a village but through my own experience becoming and being a mother, it’s taught me that it’s a perfect time to start building and relying on one.
When I became a mother to my first of two boys I knew I needed a ‘village’ to maintain my emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health and enable me to stay connected to myself, my desires, my yearnings, my feelings, my knowing. It’s a work in progress, bumping up against different challenges and beliefs, being stretched, enlightened and amazed by this journey. This is why I summon the village so I can further uncover the blind spots, relieve me of what I can’t do or see or cope with on my own and remind me of who I am l and who I want to be more of.
