Are you a mom who often says yes or does everything for everyone else? It is quite common as moms, & creating boundaries isn't always easy. Today’s guests believe that we have to learn to say “no” in order to live our greatest “YES’s” because if we are spread to thin we won't be living "on purpose" lives. Sonnet Simmons Matthews and Veronica Morales Frieling are friends, new mamas, & podcasts hosts. "Not Your Mothers Podcast" was created out of a passion to make mothers feel more connected/ less alone. They also believe that speaking our "unsaids" transparently can help us feel more connected and heard as a community of moms. Episode Take-Aways: 1.) Accepting our new motherhood identities rather than trying to resist them. 2.) Why creating boundaries opens us up to the things that can actually help us thrive. 3.) Why there is no such thing as balance, and motherhood is a constant dance. 4.) Why we shouldn't try to fit ourselves into ONE BOX 5.) How living "on purpose" lives is totally attainable whether we are working outside of the house or staying home with our kids.
