Starry-Eyed | Awakening Our Sense of Wonder

August 30, 201638 min
#94: Heading towards the last hurrah of summer, we’re letting our hair down, celebrating our sensuality, and re-awakening our sense of wonder. We're also posing one of my favorite mom questions: Why do we struggle to look like we're perfect when the people we love the most are the ones who are fancy free with their imperfections? Our guest Mandy Arioto, mother to three young children, is the president and CEO of MOPs International: "a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers.” Mandy has been featured on MSN.com, theknot.com, the nest.com, and Fox. She writes: “Carl Jung suggests that becoming whole means bringing together that which has been torn apart. Whether that is light and darkness, feminine and masculine, conscious and unconscious, we are whole when we embrace both.” You can find her new book "Starry-Eyed: Seeing Grace in the Unfolding Constellation of Life and Motherhood" on atomicmoms.com. P.S. We also talk about ice cream.
