One of the greatest blessings in my life is my relationship with my daughter. Yesterday on my birthday she planned an entire day starting with watching the sunrise to enjoying coffee by the lake and many adventures with her dog Lily. Our relationship hasn’t always been good when she was 12 I made a decision that I was done with the drama and I was going to enjoy my daughter through her teenage years instead of dreading them. I am passionate for mothers to reconnect with their teenage daughters. You really can dial down the drama.

I can’t believe that a year ago today I stepped onto the red carpet of Ted X Wilmington. This was definitely one of the highlights of my life to be able to share my passion that moms could have an authentic and enjoyable connection with their teenage daughter.
Do you feel weary? The definition of weary is exhausted in strength, endurance, vigor, or freshness. Another definition is having one’s patience, tolerance or pleasure exhausted. Have you lost your freshness? Is your patience, tolerance or pleasure exhausted? See good moms become weary for good reasons. We pour out all our good mothering resources into our family and they benefit from that greatly. And if we have not intentionally filled ourselves back up again then we become weary. As we approach the end of summer it would be wise to take a self-assessment. You don’t want to start the busy school year already depleted and in a state of weariness. New blog at colleenogrady.com
