Statement on faith: Called into antiracist work

To make sense of our own purpose, or to open ourselves up to understanding purpose, is a journey of self-identification. It is a critical prerequisite of antiracist work. I’ve been discovering my “self” along the way. The truth is, that now, in my mid-30s, I’ve moved out of a selfish and self-centered youth. Adulting looks and feels connected and intertwined with...

Emotional Bandwidth when Work and Parenting Collide

Emotional Bandwidth Capacity and Limits A post on LinkedIn caught my eye. The original poster stated he was at his emotional limit due to all the events in 2020. He stated he could not give his spare time to others requesting attention for their social or emotional needs. I found this really interesting and clicked open the comments to find people disagreeing with him.

Create a No-tears Morning Routine to get out the Door

Stacy and I just recorded a podcast about morning routines and what helps all the little ones get ready for school or daycare. While I wouldn’t call myself an expert, my nine years of experience should qualify me for the title of “Senior Morning Transition Manager” or “Let’s Get Ready for School Supervisor.” Morning Routine Mornings at my house typically start with someone or something waking me up. This is never a voluntary act. It is a rare day when I jump out of bed...

It’s a work in progress, but as a result, I am a better mother, friend, partner, and functioning person in society. What does it mean to fail gracefully? Failing gracefully is not always beautiful. Failure often means pushing through discomfort and awkwardness. We are dropped into situations that...
