“I think that’s what happens to most of us, is we get to a point where what we are doing is not congruent with our soul’s purpose and priorities, so we end up in an identity crisis. We stand there and ask ‘Am I just a MOM, am I my business, am I enough, am I a robot … who the heck am I?’
I think deep down we are all teenage Margaret’s praying for God to answer our cries, during this time where we feel like we are losing control and going completely bat crazy. With constant stress, poor eating, lack of exercise and no time for ourselves, it’s no wonder our hormones are completely out of control.”
