Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

As mothers in the United States, we have a lot to be overwhelmed and angry about right now. On today’s episode I have Dr. Colleen Reichmann here to rage about the unsustainability of motherhood in America. My purpose of this episode is to make mothers like you feel less alone. I hope this conversation makes you feel validated and lets you know that you aren’t fighting this fight by yourself.
With everything going on in the world right now, many of us may feel frightened, sad, frustrated, or angry today. Expressing these feelings and having them heard is really important. So often we are told, especially as women, that our anger is a bad emotion and that we shouldn’t feel that way. It doesn’t allow us to move forward. Well, I don’t believe that. I believe that when anger is used in the right way, it can create positive change. After listening to this episode, I hope that you feel the same way.
“Anger is like flowing water; there’s nothing wrong with it as long as you let it flow. Hate is like stagnant water; anger that you denied yourself the freedom to feel, the freedom to flow; water that you gathered in one place and left to forget. Stagnant water becomes dirty, stinky, disease-ridden, poisonous, deadly; that is your hate. On flowing water travels little paper boats; paper boats of forgiveness. Allow yourself to feel anger, allow your waters to flow, along with all the paper boats of forgiveness. Be human.”
