January brings all things healthy and virtuous to the forefront – so we are doing our part with three hormone balancing smoothies to kick off the new year.
It seems we are programmed to think about a healthy start to the new year – goals and or resolutions are made and promises to eat more greens and add healthy new items to our diets get added to our “to-do” list.
In that vein, as we age we are also fighting our hormones and dealing with the onset of menopause in addition to dealing with our teens fighting their own hormonal battles 🙂
I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been struggling lately with the realization that our kids are almost grown and how the dynamic in our household is subtly changing each year. With that struggle comes a little bit of self doubt. I wonder if we taught them everything they are going to need to know as adults. I question whether, with all my faults, I was a “good enough” mom.
But I recently had an experience that helped change that narrative in my brain and I’ve decided to share just in case any of you suffer from similar insecurities.
