On today’s podcast the tables were flipped and I was interviewed by my coach. As I know the power in sharing our stories, it was important for me to share mine and why I love serving women who are looking to disrupt the norm and live they life they are called to do.
“I’m not in the business of talking people out of having kids but I do want to support women, who are navigating this decision or have made this decision but still carrying some of the societal expectations with them, to step boldly into their decision and create the life they dream for themselves.”
We talked about how my resume of dream jobs still left me searching for more,how despite always knowing I didn’t want kiddos it didn’t feel official until the past couple of years and what it looks like for women who are on the fence for this decision to make it once and for all. After the conversation my brain was racing with all the ways we (high-performers) struggle when we want to disrupt the norm of our life. From worrying about what others will think to how do i create this life that I don't see many examples of. It's challenging and uncomfortable and unknown but it's so worth it.
Even if you have kiddos or dream of having them, this is a helpful episode for anyone out there who is wanting to live their life off the beaten path and disrupt the “American Dream”.
