Ep: 8 - The Comparison Trap

At some point I’m sure you have fallen prey to the comparison trap, just like me. Whether it was positive or negative. When you have kids who have some extra needs this can be really challenging to navigate. I also realized sometimes the insecure feelings I was feeling were mine - not my kiddos. In this episode I have a real convo about my own struggle with this comparison trap.


Ep 7: Self Worth

Anybody else out there struggle with self worth? It’s no joke and those insecurities can filter into every avenue of your life. Today I share my struggle and some things I’ve learned that hopefully can help you too!


Ep:6 Motherhood can be EMBARRASSING

I don’t know about you, but in my experience motherhood can be EMBARRASSING! From my c-section that was observed by 5 students at the training hospital, to meltdowns in public, to sneaking insulin at parties to heated SST & 504 meetings, being a momma is NOT for the weak of heart! This is just a reminder, you are not alone! People pleasers unite! We will get through this one embarrassment at a time xoxo


Ep: 5 - How to Forgive Yourself

I am terrible at forgiving myself, even though I am pretty darn good at forgiving others. If you struggle with forgiving yourself too, I share 3 techniques that have worked for me. I hope they can help you too xoxo If you want more positivity or want to book a reiki session find me at Marie


Ep 4: Sensory Processing Disorder and Our Family

Sensory Processing Disorder is CRAZY! It can be very hard to diagnose. There are different variations and what works for us may or may not work for you! I share our experience and things that have helped us so that we can encourage and support someone else. Here’s a Blog Post I did on SPD that might help too :) ** This is NOT medical advice and I am not a medical professional


Ep 3: My Son’s T1D Diagnosis

The day my son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes our whole world flipped upside down! I had a quick conversation with my son on the day he was diagnosed and his thoughts on living with Type 1 Diabetes now. If you just got diagnosed and you head is spinning, you are not alone.
