26. Having personal goals and dreams while mothering small kids. Bonus Q+A Episode

In the last episode, I answered a reader question on feeling unhappiness in motherhood and gave life coaching advice on working through a bad day. (Find that here)

In this episode, I will answer this great question: Right now I am struggling with motivation – for bigger goals for myself (and motivation in general). After I became a mom I had to shut down the BIG dreamer in me because it was taking away from me being able to be present and content with where I am now. So…it’s this conundrum…don’t want more than you can accomplish but want just enough that challenges you to stay motivated to grow and move towards those goals. If you had any input on this balancing act, I would sure appreciate it.
