Kristin is a mother of twin toddlers (1 boy and 1 girl) and host of The Progress Project Podcast. She loves reading, yoga, and baking. She talks about her struggles with infertility which guided her to be the mother she wants to be in finding the balance between being a present mother and doing some work too. Kristin speaks to trusting herself and finding momentum in her successes.
Kristin felt a lot of resistance as she dealt with her infertility for five years. As she did that, she was able to come to terms with and really explore what her role could be if she wasn’t meant to be a mother yet. Resistance turned into acceptance for her as she journaled and wrote her way through her thought processes. She found herself as she discovered her gifts and desires. She took time to think about the woman she sees herself as in 50 years and used that to help find her purpose.
She finds the balance between motherhood and having a career as an ongoing challenge. She wants to be a present mother, but uses her work as a creative outlet and to help her be a person outside of being a mother. Kristin believes balance is the constant readjustment in the pursuit of wholeness. Something that help Kristin stay present in motherhood is not resisting what is.
