My Favorite Fck Up, Episode Two: Bad Mom

Bad moms. What’s your story?

Some of us fear that we are “bad moms.” Some of us wish our own mothers would’ve handled things a bit differently. For others, it ain’t the mama that’s the problem–it’s your daddy, or your step-daddy, or maybe a mean sister….. Either way, almost every one of us has struggled to navigate our relationships with those to whom we are tied in blood, for better or for worse.

On today’s second episode of My Favorite Fck Up!: Bad Mom, three women explore the ways in which familial challenges sparked meaningful growth.

  • “You’ll never amount to anything,” Elaine’s mother used to tell her….watch Elaine prove her wrong.
  • Veronica survives a traumatic childhood to emerge with an unexpected lesson.
  • Carole receives a lesson of self-acceptance from an unexpected teacher: her own son.

My Favorite Fck Up! is a brand new four-part series featuring twelve women from all walks of life spilling stories of their wildest, most delicious, most heart-breaking, and most beloved fck-ups, told before a live audience at a beach house on the shores of North Carolina at Stripcoast, my annual retreat for women craving the opportunity to embody the badass firecracker hidden inside–and share her best stories with those eager to listen, in the meantime!

You can listen to My Favorite Fck Up! on iTunesStitcher, or Libsyn.

Or perhaps you want to be part of the same experience that produced My Favorite Fck Up? In that case, Stripcoast 2019 is the place for you! Join a dozen or so other women for five nights on the beach in the Outer Banks of North Carolina where the wild horses roam as we share laughs, stories, tears–and the occasional boogie-boarding tip. Applications for Stripcoast 2019 are not yet open, but you can read all about this year’s event here. If you want to be on the first-to-know list for Stripcoast 2019, just hit reply with the subject line “Stripcoast 2019 please!” and we’ll put you on the list. Do note that like the majority of my retreats, Stripcoast is limited to women only. 

At both of these retreats, guests will enjoy writing instruction, workshops, and the opportunity to record their story before a live audience, to later be shared on a podcast like My Favorite Fck Up!

I certainly hope to see you IRL soon.
