Parents often ask me how they can listen to their child’s feelings when they can’t talk yet or have limited language.
Towards the end of my first year of motherhood I felt like things were starting to unravel... I was drowning in a sea of exhaustion, hazy sleep deprivation and neglecting my self as my life was taken over by breastfeeding, cooking, cleaning, laundry, nappies, toilet training and a relentless toddler who seemed to need more and more of me to be happy. This is how I turned it around.
💛Imagine if the level of success you felt as a mother was equal to the level of connection you feel... to yourself... to your children... to others... to nature ... rather than how much stuff you’ve ticked off your to-do list. How would that make you feel?
