Mom life is a marathon, not a sprint. You see, every mom I’ve ever known, near and far, experiences mom guilt to some degree, at some point in their journey of motherhood.

So here are a few ways I’ve found to kick mom guilt to the curb and live my #momlife marathon to the fullest.
As a therapist and a life coach, I’m the first person to say that if we want to make changes in our lives, it starts with internal (versus external) shifts.
