Today’s episode is all about embracing the nuances of adulthood. Each week, I feature a personal essay about the things on my mind and this week I’ve been thinking about my contribution to this world. As a result, I’ve shared a short riff on legacy. Then, I sit down with my sweet friend Jillian Grover for a wide-reaching conversation about parenthood and the day-to-day of adult responsibilities. Jillian is a blogger at Doing Away With Perfect
and a mother of three. We cover topics like how she found out her daughter is gay, raising daughters in this political climate, tough conversations with kids, the importance of a morning routine, having an extrovert child in a family of introverts, and so much more. Enjoy!

I want to create spaces that feel like home, no matter where we are.
I want to cultivate a real life laboratory where it’s safe to fail brilliantly.
I want a safe environment that’s free of judgment and expectations.
I want everyone to know that they’re perfect, just as they are, when they’re with me. That they’re allowed to be messy and imperfect. That life isn’t linear, that mistakes happen, that honesty is the best path forward, that the only way out is through.
Give me all your weird, all your insecurities. Let me nurture them, give them space, allow them to heal and change and grow into what they were meant to be, into what YOU were meant to be.
Because you spend all your extra energy meeting the needs of others, isn’t it time for someone to do the same for you?
Will you let me be that person?
Will you allow me to sit next to you and experience what you’re feeling?
Will you ease into the deep ocean of truth with me?
And allow yourself to be seen?
