80. A message for the mom (or person) who thinks she's not doing enough
A few weeks ago I was talking with a friend who felt like she had to use some of her free time to get involved with organizations around time to show her support for their causes. In the same breath, she talked about wanting to spend more time with her young children. This week on the Best Today® Podcast I am sharing what I told her and this message isn't just for parents but for whomever is telling themselves that you aren't doing enough. It's a short episode and one that I hope will get its point across in only a few sentences. It's one you'll want to share and listen to again until the message sinks in.
