What if we
challenged the idea that in order to give our kids our very best,
we moms have to put our dreams and goals on hold until our children
Our guest this week is Yakini Pierce, of ADHD Love. We're
talking about self care for moms who have ADHD and dreaming big and
pursuing goals is part of taking care of ourselves. There is a
detestable martyrdom expected of moms: don't do anything for
yourself, or else you're a bad, selfish mom whose kids will end up
dysfunctional and unloved! Um, what? Let's flip the script and look
at all of the ways that chasing our dreams show our kids how to
live fulfilled, joyful lives. We set the tone for our entire
family's mood, so when we are proud of ourselves and living out our
purpose, we have more to energy to pour into our families. So how
do we choose the goals worth pursuing? And how do we balance the
role of motherhood with the role of goal-getter?
Today Yakini shares how she attained 3 degrees, works a full
time job, and runs her own real estate business on the side, plus
her hobby of ADHD Love, on top of being a single mom...making her
the perfect candidate to encourage us in pursing our dreams and
setting big goals when we have ADHD and kids to raise. We're diving
into our discussion on self-care, how she chooses a goal, creates
the structure needed to be successful, and how we, too, can achieve
big dreams with ADHD.
Taking care of yourself is a basic requirement of living -
like food and water - not a luxury item. Self-care can and
must be done in every stage of motherhood. Get ready - let's figure
out what self-care truly fits you. You are worthy. You are
valuable. You are not alone.
