Is your heart feeling heavy right now?
I would love to share a perspective if your heart is feeling heavy.
It's easy to wear the burdens of the world on our shoulders - and then we may turn to guilt or shame. Guilt that we're not doing enough and want to do more; shame because we feel that there is something wrong with us not being able to "fix this".
There may even be an experience...
"I'm so scared to have children. I feel that I'm too selfish and not ready to give up everything so I can have children. How did you do it?".
That was a real question!...
"What makes you think that you have to give everything up?" I asked.
"Everyone around me says it's all about the children when you become a parent. They say they never have time for themselves..and I feel that they...
Do you ever feel misunderstood? Or feel unseen and unheard?... You can't quite articulate the experience in words - and there is an experience that sometimes you wish the people around you "got you".
If only they understood how much you're trying, and how much you love.
If only they could sense that you're giving this parenting thing everything you have.
There is a lull of...
Growing up, my parents would say; "We gave everything up for you...!".
I never asked them to.
This isn't to sound ungrateful - and I am not judging them.
EVERYONE is doing the best they could with what they know at any moment in time. I genuinely believe that. Each individual is on their unique journey and their best - is not for us to judge.
And yes, sometimes their best - may...
Firstly - Thank-you.
Thank you for reading, for being on this journey of exploring and having Motherhood be a foundation of healing, transformation, and an access to being our best selves.

I remember this moment so vividly. It was an "A-ha" moment that shifted my inner world and had an incredible ripple effect on my experience of Motherhood.
Avery was three weeks old. It was the first week of being on my own. My husband John had returned to work. It's early morning, and I'm standing in the kitchen making myself breakfast. An overwhelming experience of feeling so humbled...
It has been a while!! As some of you may know, we were expecting our second towards the end of the year... and well... on 1st January 2020 - we welcomed a new addition to our family - Brooklyn Leo Nguyen!
I took a bit of time off to concentrate on the pregnancy, settling in as a new mother to a toddler and newborn; and of course, navigating the changes as husband and wife with two children......
I'm writing this to you at 38.5 weeks pregnant - Bub is going to grace our lives any day now!!! :)
Just the other day, we got Avery's newborn clothes out to wash and prepare for the little one on the way (we don't know it's a boy or a girl!) and this wave of uncertainty and fear came over me.
"I think I've forgotten how to look after a newborn!".
In the next moment, I thought;...
