Part 1

Part 2

Do you look at your childhood differently now that you are a parent?

In this special 2-part episode of MomDaze Podcast, I sit down with my mother and sister and discuss our mutual history and how we all viewed and processed the same moments in our lives differently.

As our narrative unfolds we learn:

  • We carry the patterns from generation to generation whether we realize it or not.
  • The unspoken idea that women should behave, be strong, not disrupt any societal norms
  • As a mom, we thought what we were doing what was correct, or just didn’t know otherwise, and to later learn better can come with feelings of shame.

My favorite part of the conversation was hearing stories from my mom and details I hadn’t heard before. 

Understanding her even better brought insight into my heritage and all that comes with being a woman raised through eras we can barely relate to anymore.

Meet Dawn Calvinisti

Most people who know Dawn realize she’s a jack of all trades. She’s had careers in graphics, cooking, music, administration and homeopathy. Her current career combines a bit of each of these as she leads a team of entrepreneurs in building their own natural health careers and at the same time teaches families how to take control of their health.

When she met Marcello she was absolutely positive she would never, ever, ever want to live in Guatemala. Surprise! After a 2 week visit she knew there was something changing in her heart and the rest happened in stages.

Dawn loves chocolate. Like in an unhealthy way, but tries her best to control it. Chocolate almond ice cream bars are her favourite. But any combo of chocolate, nuts and caramel will do.

She is loving her role of leading others to live a life of freedom whether in health or in finances.

They’re pretty boring, and maybe even messy, but if you would like to read the unedited show transcripts they’re available for you
