In this episode, Shannon and Ashley share personal details about how they face their fears in life, even when it's really uncomfortable and scary.  They both talk about how imposter syndrome creeps up and how they're learning that sometimes they have to take the brakes off and simply jump into the flow of where their intuition and the pull of the Universe is taking them.

You will feel so inspired to get out of your comfort zone, listen deeply to that inner voice and lean in towards the direction your dreams.

In this episode, Shannon and Ashley share a lovely conversation with Stef Tousignant, creator of Parenting with Gratitude.  

Stef is an author and parenting expert, who calls herself an imperfect parent and gratitude nerd.

Stef shares how her daily practice of gratitude has changed her outlook on life, and how it's changed her parenting style over the years.  We explore how to savor the special moments in life, ways to be more present in our parenting, and how having a simple gratitude practice can help you feel better and happier.

The practice of gratitude is a compliment to self-compassion, something we mothers need more than ever while raising children these days. We are all human and learning this parenting thing as we go along. We need to practice being gentle with ourselves along the way.

Also in this episode, we talk about ways to look at imperfection and mess as examples of well-lived lives. What a beautiful perspective.

You're going to love this conversation - so let's jump right in!  Enjoy the show and thanks for listening and sharing this episode with your friends.

In today's episode, Ashley and Shannon explore and guide you through the family of origin work. 

What is your family of origin?

Your family of origin is the family in which you grew up in. Who was in your home during your childhood and how did that shape who you are and how you parent today? 

As you reflect on your family of origin, you can become more mindfully aware of the celebrations you loved, the challanges you faced and the new intentions you want to set for your family. 

Let's bring a new sense of awareness around these particular topics: 

love and affection, holidays and traditions, values, important memories, sibling relationships, fights and conflict, parenting roles and dicipline.

To be intentional means we have choices. You can learn from looking back at your family of origin and how you were raised to gain greater awareness, so that you can make different choices that feel best to you and your family.   

Let us know what your greatest take-away is from this episode and thanks for listening.  We appreciate your support and feel grateful for you!
