069: Rekindling Your Love of Motherhood // Kelly Jensen
\"The truth is, I don\'t like motherhood--and I desperately want to.\"
In August of 2016, I wrote these words in an email to a woman I\'d never met before but had admired from afar, asking for her advice. At the heart of my message was this question: \"How can I learn to love motherhood more?\"
My kids were 5 and 2 at the time, and long days at home with them were brutal for me, despite my best efforts to be a patient and fun mom. I felt lost and unfulfilled--but too embarrassed to admit just how desperate I felt to anyone in my real life. It was safer to reach out to someone distant, and that\'s why I emailed one of my mom-heroes from Instagram, Kelly Jensen.
I never would\'ve believed that just over two years later, I would be talking to Kelly on my very own podcast, reading her that heartfelt plea for help I sent I sent via email and sharing her response with moms all over the world.
It was thrilling for me to interview Kelly for this week\'s episode. She\'s a mother of five who is known for her contagious love of family life, with her seasonal \"Live Lists\" and love letters to her children (#wordsformybabies). In this episode, she cheers every mother on with the reminder to value who we are as individuals--and know that it\'s enough.
