The Voices in Your Head Make You Feel It

You already know about the Bitch Mama and the Brave Mama aka Ego and Intuition, right? If not, make sure you go back and read that blog first.  Ego is the big, loud mouthed, mean, bitchy voice in your head that reminds you on a regular basis that you aren’t trying hard enough, doing enough, nursing enough, pumping enough.  It is really easy to let that Bitch Mama in your head convince you that you aren’t enough....more
