Be a model, not a martyr

I’m obviously obsessed with Brene Brown’s new podcast, Unlocking Us. Her episode with Glennon Doyle, the Author of Untamed, is a must listen. Here are a quote to whet your appetite:


I am staying in this marriage for this little girl, but would I want this marriage for this little girl? Why am I modeling bad love for her and calling that good mothering . . .

What if good motherhood is not about being a martyr, but being a model.


What if our children will only allow us themselves to live as fully as we do, so good mothering is not settling.


Goosebumps. So today, model a bit of self-love and me-time . . . even if it means even more screen time for your little ones. You are too important to them not to.
