Unfortunately, there’s no official manual for parenting. All of us are just trying to do our best. Wondering if we’re even close to “doing it right” most of the time.
No matter how many kids you have, you’re always learning. And always learning about yourself.
We’re rounding out this month of talking about taking imperfect action by chatting about getting to know ourselves and our strengths as a mom in this episode.
I’m talking to Nina Garcia about all the things she’s learned along the way of being a mom of twins, of being a mom of three kids, and just figuring out more about herself as a person.
She shares what she’s learned about parenting, what she’s discovered that she’s good at through her motherhood journey, how she found out what she enjoys, and how she wants to show up to help and serve other moms.
