In my pursuit to be a good mother, I had taken serious to a whole other level - I had become an aggressive dictator.
I realised then and there that I could take mothering seriously and have fun at the same time.
Athletes take their sport seriously. But they also have fun.
To be at their best, a professional athlete needs to have fun.
Being in the zone, feeling it. That state of perfection where magic happens requires more than "serious", it requires letting go, trusting your natural instincts and having FUN!
The same way an athlete LOVES their sport, I needed to LOVE being a mother.
