Ep 104: Motherhood, Self-Scrutiny and Growth with Lori Curran
Today Lori Curran of The Humble Nook joins me to talk about motherhood and how it has changed us, challenged us and transformed us (and continues to do so!)
In our candid conversation we chat about:
> the impact of our own expectations - what we told ourselves we should be doing, feeling and achieving
> how feeling scrutinised impacts our experience
> feeling lost and how we each navigated this
> the impact of post-baby (and pre-baby) body-image
> the ways movement and exercise sometimes hindered us from feeling good in our bodies (and the times they helped)
> the impact of feeling 'not enough'
> understanding the role of agency and choice and being honest about what we really need.
