So, you’re a mom. Do you still dream big?

Foremothers in our nation’s history have paved the way for women to dream big. They have broken barriers, defied odds and proven that women can achieve anything. We have a legacy left by women like pilot Amelia Earhart and founder of the American Red Cross Clara Barton. Sally Ride was the first woman in space and Sandra Day O’Connor was the first female U.S. Supreme Court Justice. Katie Couric was the first woman to solo anchor the evening news. Because of these American women — and other women like them — generations of girls have been taught they could be anything they wanted: doctors, lawyers, scientists, teachers, authors....

Please Don’t Judge

In a recent article I wrote for Motherhood Matters, I talked about 3 ways to increase your self-worth as a mother. Some of my advice was don’t compare yourself to others and admit there is no such thing as a perfect mother. Though I know many people enjoyed the article, I was saddened by some of the comments a few readers left behind. (I know, I shouldn’t read the comments. I’ll try not to next time.) Working Moms attacked Stay At Home Moms.  Stay At Home Moms felt the need to defend themselves. Happy Moms felt they needed to...

KSL Blogger Night: Behind the studios

Everyone knows I’m all about living out dreams. Here’s a little secret: there was a time in junior high when I wanted to be a news anchor! I changed my mind a little in college and majored in public relations instead. And then I married a sports anchor, go figure.  As newlyweds, I followed him to Kansas and Oklahoma and watched while he delivered the sports five nights a week. Well, last week it was my turn to give anchoring the news a try! KSL graciously hosted over 40 bloggers for a Blogger Meet and Greet night. So much fun! Talk...

3 steps to increase your self-worth as a mother

I met my husband downtown for our Valentine’s lunch date. The restaurant was fancy, the food was excellent and the company even better. But the minute he asked me how I was doing, I couldn’t hold back the tears. I had no right to cry. I had no right to be unhappy. I was surrounded by blessings. So why did I feel such an empty spot? My feelings were not rational but, for me, they were real. I loved my husband and I loved my children, but I still felt stuck. I felt stuck in my role as a...

MOM Resolution #6: Everyone Needs Playdates

Years ago I remember a phone conversation I had with a long-time friend. We were at two very different stages in life. She had four children and had just gone back to school. She had new friends and new adventures in her life. She had just told me about some of the new, extreme sports she had taken up like paragliding and rock climbing. Then she asked me, “so what do YOU do for fun?” I sank in my chair. I had no idea. I had nothing to say. At the time, my second child was only a few...

MOM Resolution #5: Cherish My Children

Now I that I had specific times for Working Me, I wasn’t sneaking off to my laptop every chance I got.  It was time to spend quality time with my children. I wanted to cherish my children. I wanted to live fully in each moment. We cuddled on the couch. We made tracks for Matchbox cars, built play dough stations, drew hopscotch on the sidewalk. We played Ring-around-the-rosie and Hide-and-seek. Have you played Hide-and-seek lately? I don’t mean let-them-hide-while-you-pretend-to-seek-and-fold-laundry. You hide! Pick a really great spot. Get there and stay quiet. When their little feet pass you by, wait...

MOM Resolution #4: Leverage My Time

Once you have decided your most important roles, it’s time to make time for them! I know this is tricky. It seems there is never enough time. When I was first learning to Leverage My Time, my twin toddlers had just gone from two naps a day to one. Losing that extra two hours a day was already sending me spinning! I could hardly find time to shower! But my new goals were important to me. Joy from living at my full potential was important to me.  It was time to control my time, not allowing my time (or...
