"Angry Perfection?" You Learn Something New Every Day
Tonight I attended one of Stephanie's, All The Mama Feels, events... talks... errrr, mamas night's out. I didn't know what to expect when I signed up for the event, but figured a night out without the kids, in a room full of mamas, with wine, is a good idea, so why not.
Steph is a mama to one, a feminist, a leadership coach (and one heck of a truth speaker)... but more than that, she is a communicator, a connector, and within a couple of hours, she was able to make a room full of strangers a tribe who openly shared their raw mama ups, downs, challenges and created a room full of empathy + empowerment.
My automatic instinct was to stay in my comfort zone, just sit, listen and enjoy a quiet evening, but Steph challenges you to go against that, and so I shared with the mama I sat beside, I even stood up and shared stories. We all enjoyed some laughs, some tears, a lot of empathy, a lot of "yaasssss", a lot of "me too", a lot of "I totally get it", a lot of wine sips and more.
In this quick evening filled with lots of conversation and some on-the-spot homework (with wine + cookies in hand), we learned something new (or maybe not so new) about ourselves. For me it's something I like to call "Angry Perfection", lol. So hope you can join me next time for another All The Mama Feels event, and we can chat more about my new self-defined "Angry Perfection" or what the kids stuck in the toilet, what milestone they reached, or what mamas trip (yes, a no kids vacay) we enjoyed last. Like how you can't describe what giving birth is like, you just have to come out for a night out with Steph to understand all the mama feels.
