“If you are not happy and thriving, all other parts of your life will not thrive. Including your children.”

In this episode I introduce you The Motherhood Champagne-Glass-Tower Model.

I created The Motherhood Champagne-Glass-Tower Model to visually demonstrate the importance of a mother’s “glass” being full. Because if the mother’s glass is empty, she cannot pour into other areas of her life, like her children.

Key takeaways from this episode :

♥    You are the top glass of YOUR champagne glass tower.

♥    If your glass is not full, your “champagne” cannot trickle down into other parts of your life.

♥    To be the happiest mother you know, you must keep your glass full.
