Lessons from a motherless mom. In this episode, Dara Kurtz talks about mothering her two daughters after losing her own mom and going through cancer. She also shares tips on how to live in the moment and connect to the people in your life deeply, that you love now.
- You don’t have to pretend everything is okay when it’s not. It’s okay to say, “I’m not okay.” It’s okay to ask for help. “This is more than I can handle right now.”
