037: Discover How to Set the Burning Desire in Your Belly Ablaze | Kate Greenstock

If you’re a mother, then you’re already having an impact on the world. Yes indeed-ee.

[Kate Greenstock]

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be discovering how to set the burning desire in your belly ablaze.

As a busy mum with competing demands and limited time you often feel torn and pulled in different directions. You pour out so much of yourself, your emotions, your energy into your family. It can feel like you’re carrying so much, but at the same time being ‘unproductive’ in the world’s eyes, despite wanting to make your mark.

But we’re going to give you another perspective.

My guest today is SuperMum Kate Greenstock

Kate, her husband, and their three children, who are 13, 11 and 7, live near Richmond Park in Greater London where she loves to breathe, cycle and deer stalk. Transitioning from a calling-the-shots career woman, to being a mother with no rule book to follow, proved to be more of a challenge than Kate expected.

But she found a solution, and along with it, her calling to help other mothers who were also feeling lost in motherhood.

At Wild Rubies, Kate helps mums to feel like they’re truly living, rather than just existing; re-discovering themselves and re-imagining their work lives in the process​.

If you’re tired of being seen as just a worker or just a mother, Kate will help you find a way forward. Then you get to be seen by the world full and whole, and in creative technicolour.

Kate gives you permission to ​take the space to breathe ​and​​ ​find the clarity ​needed ​to set your eyes on what’s ahead for you.

I’m so excited to welcome Kate to my show because she will teach you to be more like your children – incomplete, imperfect, curious, daring, outrageous and completely loved – and in doing so, fuel that fire in your belly.

034: Why You Should Lighten Up, Let Your Hair Down and Learn to Laugh a Little

[Mums] just wanna have fun

[Cyndi Lauper]

This morning on the 30 minute walk to school, I counted the number of times I moaned at my kids. 

I ran out of fingers and toes. 

But I’m OK with that, because I’m keeping my kids safe, I’m teaching them to be kind, I’m helping them to be compassionate. 

I’m bringing them up to be good citizens of the world, and I’m doing my job well. 

But at what point to I need to stop being so uptight, and start laughing a little? 

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about when it’s OK to stop being the mummy-police and start to let our hair down a little.

This weeks challenge:

My challenge for this week is to seek out a moment, where you can just say, ‘stuff it’, and let your hair down a little, despite the fall out that you’ll have to sort out later.

Tell me what you think?

Tell me in the comments. What did you and your kids have fun doing? What did you all laugh about together? And what we’re the repercussions?

I’m here to spur you on and help you as much as possible

Hope you enjoy the show.
