The Art of Nurturing Ourselves - Doña Bumgarner, 46
Thank you to everyone who has followed along with our #onekindsummer campaign. I am excited to start up our interviews again. With the spirit of self-compassion in mind, today we’re focused on the art of nurturing ourselves.
Doña Bumgarner and I talk about her unusual childhood, her winding path to motherhood, and how she recreated her life after nine months of cancer treatment. It was a joy to talk with her.
Doña is a coach who works with women who know that there is much more to life than their kids - but they’ve lost themselves in the role of motherhood. She helps them make sense of their lives and learn to stand up for themselves and the lives they want to create. You can find her at Nurtured Mama.net, where she blogs and has a podcast called The Nurturing Habit.
This project is a labor of love for me, so if you are enjoying it, I would be grateful if you would not only rate and review it on Apple Podcasts, but also share it with a friend. I love hearing from people I know say they’ve listened to the podcast and how they’ve connected with an episode. It gets us into a conversation about how life is really going that wasn’t always happening before. I treasure that, so send an episode that resonated with you to a friend with a note. You might just spark something.
