"And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, “This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!”

 

And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.”

Share Your Story!

We know every mom has a story to share, but not every mom has a platform to do it.  So we are opening up our website for guest posts.  And while we will certainly accept posts from bloggers, this is really intended for moms who don’t have a blog.  Moms who want to try writing, who want to share some insight, or a funny story.

 

We know from our own experience how much writing can have an impact on our lives - to help us build our awareness, to help us heal, to help us laugh and be okay with the messiness of parenting.  We want this for all of you.

 

What Should I Write About?

Unlearning SuperMom is about building awareness around our habitual behaviors, the things we do without thinking.  We’re about challenging the status quo of what a “good mom” should look like.  We’re about sharing our vulnerable moments and all the places where we’re not perfect.  We’re about moms building a personal practice, because we are healthier, saner, and more fulfilled when we’re taking care of our Selves.  And we like to laugh, because it feels good.

 

So, tell us about your SuperMom.  What does she tell you?  How are you unlearning her?  Maybe a story of a time you did something contrary to modern mom culture?  Maybe something you’re noticing about how you relate to other moms?  Maybe a time where you weren’t perfect?  Where you put yourself first?  Where you blew it?  Where you learned something?

 

It doesn’t have to be a blog - we will happily accept poems, videos, and other kinds of creative expression.

 

But, I’m Not A Writer……..

Please don’t let that critical voice in your head stop you.  If you’re reading this and a little part of you is tingling at the possibility of sharing something, then just do it!  Don’t worry about making it perfect.  We have an editor on our team who will make your post all grammatically lovely, and we are here to coach you on your writing if you’d like our feedback.  

 

How Does It Work?

Really simple - write your post, and then email it to gillian@unlearningsupermom.com.  While we appreciate all submissions, if a submission isn’t in line with the Unlearning SuperMom brand we will not be posting it.  But we will be very nice about it if we can’t publish your post, and we promise to get back to you within a week to let you know either way.
