Woo Hoo. I can hardly believe it. I've reached my 100th episode. It's been challenging, intellectually demanding and stressful at times, but also stimulating, fulfilling and rewarding.

But before I tell you what's in store with this episode, I want to say a huge thank you to my amazing team of mums who busily work behind the scenes to bring you the podcast each week. You know who you are and I owe so much to you. Thank you. And of course, I need to thank you, my wonderfully devoted listener. Yes you. Thank you so much for supporting me by tuning in to the show.

So, on to today's episode. I wanted to bring you something a little different for episode number 100, so I have a very special guest lined up. It's .... wait for it ..... ME!

Yes, that's right. The tables have been turned and Naomi Light (one of my mum volunteers) is grabbing the mic and asking the questions. Just for fun, we agreed not to do any preparations ahead of the interview so all of her questions came at me cold. And boy, does Naomi know how to dig beneath the surface to get me to reveal the inner workings of my mind. In fact, I'm a bit worried she might steal my job!

I'm not going to tell you any more, I'll just leave you to listen for yourself.

My home is noisy. When my four kids burst through the door after school, it's loud. The chatter, the excitement, the bickering. Everyone's talking over everyone else and I can barely hear myself think.

But as much as I sometimes wish they had a mute button, what happens when the noise is no longer there? What happens when they're all grown up and leave home?

Jodi Silverman is an empty nester. Her daughter and son who are 22 and 19 have gone off to find their way in the world leaving her and her husband at home with their dog. But, although you grieve the loss, life-coach Jodi says that the world doesn't have to stop there. In fact, this is an opportunity for a new beginning.

With that teaching in mind, Jodi set up Moms Who Dare®, a community for mums with kids in high school and beyond looking to connect, share and thrive through having, or preparing for, an empty nest.

Whether you're an empty nester or not, this episode is a must listen because a lot of her advice rings true whatever stage of motherhood you're at. If nothing else, it's a great reminder to savour as much as you can in spite of the tantrums and tiredness, because one day the intense early years will be gone forever.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Mentally strong mums know that, by avoiding negative behaviours such as begrudging other people's success or dwelling on bad experiences, you'll be better equipped to overcome life's difficulties and become the best mum possible.

Amy Morin knows this more than most. Amy is a psychotherapist and foster parent who, amongst other life tragedies, became a widow at 23. Although her early adult life looked bleak, she knew she had to take everything she knew academically about mental strength and apply it to her own personal situation. Easier said than done.

But, rather than wallow in her own 'pity party', Amy scrapped up the pieces and went on the write the international bestseller, 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do and deliver a TED talk, The Secret of Becoming Mentally Strong, which has been viewed more than 5 million times.

Today we delve deeply into Amy's recently launched second book, 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do. We pull apart some of the issues in the book like why you should stop putting your child at the centre of your universe, the importance of eradicating mum-guilt, and why understanding your values is critical to your parenting. You'll learn that by making the often tough choices, you'll help your child build mental muscle and develop into a healthy, strong adult.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Mum life is a rush.  Rushing to do the drop off so you can get to work on time. Rushing to get the children's dinner on the table before the hunger-monster rears its ugly head. Rushing to grab some groceries before your time without the kids is up. Rush. Rush. Rush.

But what if you could change gear and slow down a little?

That's what Brisbane mum Rachelle Glendon did two years ago when her son Max was born.

Realizing that she'd spent her life using activity and busyness to curb the emotional pain of a difficult childhood, Rachelle wanted to change the status quo.

Emerging from a painful period of loneliness in the time after her son was born, Rachelle knew she needed to change her priorities. She confronted her emotions head on and fought the stigma of being seen as lazy or boring and chose life in the slow lane. And she lives a far more rewarding and fulfilled life because of it.

Rachelle now helps other mums to slow down and shares her story, alongside hints and tips on how to live a slower life, has a video blog on YouTube and through her website Glendon Family Diaries.
