WPR007: Building Strength & Identity Through the Tough Moments with Becky Burgess

Convert those difficult times in opportunities for personal growth as a working parent.

by Sarah Argenal

Episode Summary:

In this episode we talk about finding strength and identity in those tough moments of parenthood, and goodness knows we have plenty of those as working parents right?  I loved this conversation with our guest Becky Burgess.  I had so many questions prepared for her, and I didn’t touch on most of them because our conversation just flowed so organically in wonderful directions.  I loved the vulnerability and the heart and the wisdom that Becky shared with us today, and I hope you do too!

Becky Burgess is a mother of two and a wife to her high school sweetheart. She owns a social media marketing company, Splash Owl Media. When she was pregnant with her first baby, she decided she wanted to have an all-natural childbirth, and she had both of her children via water-birth at a birthing center. After a series of difficult personal events including getting fired from her job during her maternity leave and dealing with postpartum depression, she started seeing a therapist and was finally able to set some much-needed boundaries, manage her postpartum depression, and find love in the little moments. As she calls it, she “redefined herself.”

What You’ll Learn in This Episode:

  • Becky shares her personal experience into parenthood, and how becoming a parent helped her become crystal clear about WHO she really is, and what she really wanted out of her life.
  • We also chat about the struggles that come with constantly adapting to our kids changing schedules and needs.
  • We talk about how we shut out all of the judgments and advice and tap into our own instincts about the best way to be a parent in our own, unique lives (and how we can keep our own judgments in check).
