Today’s episode is such a treat as I got to chat with fellow coach, inspirational being and friend Kristin Moses. Kristin, who i met through our coaching training program, is a confident, driven and energetically aligned woman who has created her own path as a childfree woman.
“I definitely consider myself to be a nurturer and motherly.If you talk to any of my friends or clients, they would always describe me as the caretaker, motherly or a guide. I’ve always known that is who I was but I also knew that having children would not be that outlet. There are so many other ways of nurturing, mothering and caring for people that can manifest in other ways than having a child. If it’s important for you to have your own child you should do it but if you don’t have it in you, it’s absolutely okay and there is so much you can do with your life if that’s what you value.”
We talked a lot about how honoring your truth will always give you the answers you need, how the idea that you have to have a child to mother is weak and what the dating scene has been like for Kristin as a childfree woman.
What I found so interesting but not surprising is despite being 100% in her decision to be childfree and creating a full life, she mentioned that several times throughout our conversation she thought “Is this okay to say?” Every single guest has spoken some version of this statement. It shows the stigma that so many women and men carry about their decision to be childfree. Every time we share a story, the stigma lessens.
