This episode could change your life your life.

If you are craving calm, wanting to let go of stress, desiring to be more mindful in your day, listen in.

It’s a state of mind of just being present in the moment.

But today's podcast isn’t about zen meditation.

It’s the zen part that I want to share with you.

The more I read, the more I am feeling like there are ancient foundations...

They let security and money keep them small.

She shows you your greatness, encourages you to forge ahead, demand more, and become the best versions of yourself.

You have heard of childcare. Even eldercare, but how about mothercare?

My guest today guides new and veteran mothers alike through the best practices to care for themselves as they care for their children.

As a new mom, she would have described her entry to motherhood as a failure to thrive.

Her transition to maternal life was a messy, painful journey.

But she found that the birth of a mother deserves to be tended to in much the same way as the birth of a baby, with attention, devotion and the deepest kind of love.

“Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.”

This is one of my favorite quotes from Gandhi.

Let’s focus on those first two sentences. “Your beliefs become your thoughts,

Your thoughts become your words.

If this is true, then we should put great effort into training our thoughts and our words to create our destiny.

I have been a self development junkie for decades but the one thing I did not buy into were affirmations.

In this episode, I will tell you why I changed my mind.

And why I think affirmations are great for kids.
