Finding Yourself As A Mom

Show Notes

In today's episode, I discuss finding yourself as a mom and giving yourself permission to pursue your passions outside of motherhood with Allyson A. Robinson with the Hey Girl, It's Allyson podcast. This episode was super important; as parents, we're always trying to find that balance between being present for our babies while also honoring our own interests and pursuits. Do you struggle with work life balance? Or maybe you're like me, a SAHM trying to balance mom life while also making time for the activities that make you happy and whole. If any of this sounds familiar, I think you'll really enjoy today's episode! FULL SHOWNOTES HERE

If you follow my blog or have connected with me on any of my socials, you may notice I've been a little quiet lately. One of the reasons I was so excited to share this episode is because I'm LITERALLY living this life as we speak. At the beginning of this year, I had so many plans and goals for the blog and this podcast, and it's been difficult reconciling everything that I want to accomplish with homeschool and the process of raising the kids in general. Hubs, of course, is a huge help, but mom guilt is so real, ya'll! I went back and listened to my chat with Allyson a few nights ago, and as I was taking notes, there were so many little gems that I felt I could apply to my life right now. In the episode, you'll hear me tell Allyson "I feel like you're talking directly to me" and that's still true today. I hope you'll feel the same! Anyway, all that to say, if you're working on finding yourself outside of motherhood, I know you'll get as much as I did out of today's chat!




Allyson A. Robinson began her journey as a singer enrolled in a graduate-level vocal performance program before she lost her voice and was forced to get in touch with her true purpose. She says, once she was able to focus on God's voice instead of her own, she was able to embrace her calling as a youth minister. Today, as an author, host of the Hey Girl! It's Allyson podcast, and motivational speaker, she uses her platform to inspire and empower other women to be their true, unique selves. All while raising her four year old twin girls at home. She's right there in the trenches working on being present with her babies while honoring her purpose to help and inspire the rest of us, and she shares some incredibly helpful gems in today's episode.

How To Advocate For Yourself With Your Doctor + Google Alert! How To Determine Whether Your Source Is Actually Credible

Today's episode is a good one, ya'll! My guest, Shala Thomas, is a medical communication specialist, so she knows a thing or two about reliable sources. In this episode, we discuss everything from how to advocate for yourself with your doctor to the vaccine trials and how to determine an online source's credibility. Shala had some really good insight on how the trials went down and the safeguards put in place to help protect the general public, so I'm especially excited for you to listen. FULL SHOWNOTES HERE Pin It For Later We actually taped this episode earlier this year, but a lot of the topics (vaccine hesitancy & the Black community's mistrust for doctors in general) are still incredibly relevant today. I originally wanted to do what I could to share reliable information and help people advocate for themselves with their doctors and I think, even today, our chat will go a long way in doing that. Anyway, take a listen, and as always, come find me on Instagram to share your thoughts! IN THIS EPISODE, WE DISCUSS Shala's receipts (her background in oncology research and her journey to becoming a medical communication specialist)Shala's commitment to mentoring current students in the medical writing fieldBlack community: working through our distrust for the medical community as a wholeHow to advocate for yourself with your doctor (what to research, what questions to ask, etc.)Shala's thoughts on Tuskegee and how today's clinical trials ...

Cultivating Intimacy In A Relationship While Honoring Your Career

This week, I chatted with Sherica A. Matthews about developing and cultivating emotional intimacy in a relationship with your spouse or partner while also running your business or pursuing a successful career. As moms, partners, business owners, career-women, or some combination of all four, sometimes (okay, maybe a lot of the time) we struggle with maintaining that strong relationship with our partners. With the added pressure of teleworking and virtual school, a lot of us are stressed, busy, and struggling now more then ever. So, I figured we were long overdue for a conversation about the challenges we face with building emotional intimacy in our relationships and how to overcome those issues. My biggest takeaway? Relationships are abstract, so there's no "right way" to handle them. As far as relationship advice, tips, ideas, etc. take the concepts that you find the most helpful and adapt them to your specific situation. **More info on our sponsor, Lisa's Maker Space, HERE.

Dating & Finding Love Abroad With Cassandra T. Le

It's a "very special episode" of TRIBE Culture LIFE this month! (And, if you get that reference, you're my people!) In honor of Valentine's Day this month, I decided to chat with Cassandra T. Le about dating abroad, falling in love, and maintaining your sense of community while living and working abroad. We started the episode off with a little background on Cassandra's decision to move to Spain and it was so much fun hearing about that process firsthand. Moving across the world is no easy feat, and Cassandra's adventurous spirit and willingness to step out of her comfort zone are what drew me to her story in the first place. I'm almost certain those traits helped set the scene for her to meet and fall in love with her partner. Are you looking for love abroad? Or maybe just intrigued by Cassandra's story? Listen as we chat about her journey so far and the beautiful life she lives with her partner in Málaga, Spain. Pin It For Later! IN THIS EPISODE, WE DISCUSS Cassandra's background as a Vietnamese American living and working outside of DCThe culture-shock of relocating from a large, diverse metro area to a small town in SpainWhat it was like to integrate into a completely foreign cultureFinding love abroadDating and communicating with a language barrierWhere to settle?
