Hey mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose, the short actionable podcast for mamas who want more. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Mama’s daily dose is… life’s greatest obstacle is… let’s get moving before we get interrupted.
There are plenty of obstacles that you encounter on a daily basis, being a mom, and all the other titles and roles that you hold. But life’s greatest obstacle is culture, the collection of ideas about how to survive and thrive with people, it goes back to the early days, the early caveman days, where in order to survive, you needed to be part of a tribe, you needed that connection with people in order to eat, to survive and just stay alive. And that need for survival that need to belong, is still around today. This is really exemplified in teenagers just think of all the stupid crap you did back in high school just to get the admiration and attention of your peers. And it can be really hard to break out of that mold and break out of this culture, and the group of people that you’ve known for so long. And that is one of the reasons it is so hard to go after what you want to get more, because you are afraid of losing what you have. You’re afraid of losing that tribe, that group of people that sense of security that you have. But as we talked about, on Monday, the future is always unknown. And with that comes fear and anxiety. So whether you are going along with culture going along with society or not, that future is still unknown. So why not? Do what you want to do and go after what you want to whether it’s in line with culture, society, your family, your friends, whatever it is.
Mama, your action today is to think about something you are doing to try to fit in what doesn’t feel right but you’re doing it just because it fits in with your family, or what your role “should be” or with your group of friends. What just doesn’t quite feel right? But you’re doing it essentially for “survival?” And have a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
