It would be an understatement to tell you that family is important to me. I devoted more than a decade being full time at home with my children and was able to witness the positive impact it has on them still today. When I decide to commit to something, I do it full on! Parenting is a subject that I adore, probably because I felt there were not a lot of positive role modeling in my childhood. Even though they are good people and gave me everything they could, it was hard to see in either of my parents a model to emulate.
All that made this willingness to be present to my children a no brainer: I wanted to be the one to experience their first of everything. I wanted to be that person that teaches them about life and not miss a thing of theirs. Yet, at the same time, I love to work. Feeling the impact I have on those whose life I touch, brings to me the greatest amount of joy.
I also realized not so long ago how difficult and challenging it was for me to be at home. Entrepreneurship is in my blood and letting go of my ambitions and dreams was a daily battle that I could not recognized at the time. This is why I struggled in between the two polarities. I always wanted to be involved at school, being a student of some sort or into any kind of project. I needed something else to keep me from going nuts! So for all the mothers out there who are working outside the house I get it too! Being a mother, wherever you are on the spectrum, is still quite a challenge and a daily balancing act.
On this page you will find my blog posts related to this subject and free products I am creating with parenting in mind. The two most important aspects of family life I am working on is to bring forward my concept of Hearth Parenting™. Epigenetics was something I discovered more recently but even before I could put a word on my concept, I knew that the environment you create has a profound impact on what you become. To give the best environment to our children is a passport for success in their lives in so many ways. Helping them to become compassionate, loving, resourceful citizens of the world, is an high bar but not impossible.
My second big project goes on the other realm of the spectrum. When you have been involved at a high level of parenting, being there even at a spiritual level, there is also a need to replenish. If not, practice self-care becomes not only a luxury but a necessity and a survival tool at times. With my experience with a breast scare, I learned this fact the hard way. The more you care for others the more you need to take care of yourself.
Those projects are in the making and I would love to have your input on:
- What it is you struggle the most with;
- What you are in need of learning more about.
