Epiphanies, Self-Care and Being Alone
In this episode, Rachel speaks of her time away from her husband and baby girl and the epiphanies that accompanied her during this time alone. She recollects on her past, and how her childhood shaped her into a ‘fixer’ who always put other’s needs before her own. Now as a working mother, Rachel notices how her attention is pulled in thousands of directions, and still never on herself. After six days on her own, Rachel speaks of the shift she felt in her inner energy and how she reconnected to the grounded and calm person she is at her core. Diving further into this topic, she discusses the ways she can keep this feeling of space and translate it into her everyday life. She realizes that to be a better mother, wife, friend, boss, and more the best thing she can do is take care of herself first. We all need to make sure our cup is full before we try to fill others. It is possible to use the resources we have to arrive to a place where prioritizing ourselves is natural. Recognizing this is the first step, then we can go squeeze our loved ones.
