The August/ September edition of The Green Parent magazine includes the latest in my series of interviews with parenting authors and experts.
I spoke to author and artist Lucy H Pearce about her book The Rainbow Way: Cultivating Creativity in the Midst of Motherhood and why it’s so important for mothers to explore their creative sides.
I genuinely thought “I have had my kids and my life is over now”. It was a choice I had made but I thought that choosing motherhood meant saying goodbye to me and goodbye to my dreams.
But you don’t have to say goodbye to your dreams just because you are in the midst of motherhood. You can have motherhood AND creativity.
I found Lucy to be inspirational and was even encouraged to start exploring my own creativity, despite having a deeply entrenched view of myself as “not creative”.
