Welcome back to Moment. Moment is your place for calm and connection and maybe even a shift in perspective before the week ahead.

Thank you for being here. It is the 27th of December and I hope you had an amazing Christmas. And if you didn’t please be kind to yourself.

This week’s Moment is with one of my all-time favourite authors, Glennon Doyle. I was lucky enough to sit and speak with Glennon in May 2020. I love doing these short episodes but I hate how hard it is to decide which moment to select.

Today’s moment is going to go straight to your heart. Glennon says:

"A responsible mother is not one slowly dying for her children, but showing them how to bravely live. I stopped being a martyr and started being a model."

Every time I hear those words they awaken a fire in me. I think as a society we have been taught to be a good mother means we have to forget ourselves. What if it’s the opposite? What if being a good mother means showing our children how to live our brightest life. I just love this. I love Glennon and this clip and I hope you do too.

As we head into a New Year, may these words give you plenty of inspiration.
