Welcome to episode number 49- I Owe Me. In this episode I interview Becky Lauridsen. Becky is a wife to a handsome cowboy, a mother to two beautiful girls, a career woman, and the proud founder and lead supporter of IOME. She lives in Northern Colorado with her dogs, horses, a pony named bubbles and one goat named dog!
She sees a therapist on a regular basis, takes naps, showers (almost daily), washes her face every night, wears makeup, goes to church, cusses a little, takes bubble baths, goes on long walks, and binge watches Netflix when she needs to “check out”.
Becky is also a licensed professional counselor. As a counselor, and also in her own personal life, it became alarmingly clear to her that women do not get enough self-care in their day-to-day lives. The majority of women are dealing with things like anxiety, depression, guilt, past trauma, low-self esteem, feelings of stress, excessive fear, poor body image, and limiting beliefs. Just to name a few. The worst part of it is, women think it is completely “normal” to feel this way. That somehow, they are naturally supposed to live like this and there is nothing they can do about it.
Becky believes that you do not have to simply survive life! You can have your cake and eat it too; you can be the best mother and career women. The best wife and mother. The best friend and boss babe. You deserve the best, and your family deserves the best of you.
In our conversation we dive into Becky’s own experience with postpartum depression and one day feeling like she woke up to the fact that she was just going through the motions of life. There is so much goodness in this interview and I cannot wait for you to hear it!
