Regardless of how old we are when we become parents, it’s a life-changing experience. Happily, becoming a mother reconnected singer/songwriter Mara Measor with her music and her voice. She’s also looking for submissions from artists and creatives of all kinds to submit work on how their journey as a parent has impacted their creative work.
In this episode, we discussed:
- How having a child reconnected her to her love of music and singing.
- Her struggles with self-doubt and how mothering helped her begin to overcome them
- How befriending her inner-critic finally allowed her to begin sharing and embracing her work
Links Mentioned in the Show
- Call for Submissions– Mara is accepting submissions for her book Don’t Tell My Child through March 14, 2021. All of the details are in this link.
