  • 145: Real Talk and Candid Q&A with Erica Blocker

    01/05/2019 Duración: 30min

    I had fun creating this episode! It’s unlike any other episode that I’ve ever done here on the podcast. It’s my first time ever being so candid and free without a specific topic or focus. I guess you can say it’s my own version of a mini variety show. Episode 145 is a mix between free style, real talk, candid Q & A, and my thoughts. You’ll hear me talk about: my relationship with my podcast why I’m a big fan of taking breaks and social media sabbaticals the dilemma with my kids and their phone addiction how I helped a co-worker overcome his social media addiction how I manage to do all that I do as a single mom with a full-time career and more. I hope you hear something that resonates and adds value to your life in some way. If you have a question that you’d like me to answer in a future episode like this, please let me know. You can either leave a comment at http://ericablocker.com/145 or email me directly at: Erica@momswithdreams.com. I can’t wait to hear from you. Until next time, reclaim YOUR dream.

    In this episode, I’m talking to you about a precious resource – your time – and why you should stop wasting it by waiting. With life being so busy and hectic, it’s easy to tell yourself that you’re going to wait until the time is right to pursue your goals and dreams.

I want you to think about what steps you can take today to move forward in the direction of your 12-month goal. As I share with you in this episode, you don’t have to take giant steps. Each small step will add up to get you to your desired result. Just like you don’t see immediate results from working out, it will take time for you to achieve your big goals.

    14/11/2018 Duración: 20min

    In this episode, I’m talking to you about the six excuses that I hear moms make all the time when it comes to living their dreams. As moms, we will move mountains and walk across the sea for our children, but we often don’t approach our own desires with such fervor. Why is that? Why do we believe that our children should have what they want, but often do not believe the same for ourselves? Deep down we know that we deserve to live our dreams. Instead of being courageous and figuring out a way to go after what we want, we allow the story that we’ve been telling ourselves and the excuses that we make to hold us back from living our best life. Well after today, you’re going to get rid of your excuses and start working on your dreams. As you listen, I want you to think about which excuses you’ve made (or heard other moms make). Then I want you to think about how your life would look if you removed all your excuses and went for it. How would life look for you in six months, one year, or five years? Would you recog

  • 130: You Can't Rush Your Dreams w/Erica Blocker

    16/10/2018 Duración: 14min

    In this solo episode, I’m encouraging you to slow down and enjoy the journey to your dreams. In our fast-paced society, we do a lot of rushing around from one thing to the next, and we’ve developed a mindset that doing things fast is the only way to achieve success. I’m challenging you to change your mind about that. Instead, I want you to give yourself permission to slow down and find a pace that fits your lifestyle. As moms, we have a lot on our plates. We have obligations and responsibilities that take precedence over our wants and desires. And we simply don’t have the luxury of doing everything fast. When we try to do too much too fast, we can start to feel overwhelmed and put ourselves at risk for burnout. As you listen to this episode, I want you to think about the pace at which you’re currently living your life and pursuing your dreams. Are you living in the moment and enjoying your journey, or are you constantly moving at such a fast pace that makes it difficult for you to enjoy it? I share tips to he

  • How I Got Out of My Own Way & Found My Sweet Spot

    02/10/2018 Duración: 30min

    This has to be one of the most personal episodes that I’ve shared to date on my podcast. To be quite honest, I got a little nervous when my editor told me that it was ready to go because that meant it was getting closer to me sharing one of my most recent struggles with the entire world. I’m not even sure why I started to feel this way – especially because I know other people have gone through this before. Even though I know I’m not the only person who’s ever gone through this, I was having a little fear of being judged. It’s scary to be vulnerable and put your truth out there for the world to know. But at the end of the day, this isn’t about me. And if I can help at least one person by sharing my struggles and my truth, then I’m doing exactly what I’ve been called to do. That said, this week’s episode is about me sharing a personal dilemma that I had, which caused me to doubt myself and consider quitting. Yup, that’s right! I had gotten myself all worked up to the point where I was ready to throw in the towe

They’re making time for themselves and have started to understand that they aren’t any good to their families or anyone else if they aren’t taking care of themselves. In this episode, I have a conversation with Julia Aziz, an interfaith minister, licensed clinical social worker, and author who supports those who care for others - whether they are healthcare professionals, counselors, educators, or natural caregivers. You’ll hear Julia’s definition of self-care, which is quite different from the popular definition that you may associate it with right now.

    Welcome back to a new season of the Moms with Dreams Show! I’m SUPER-EXCITED to be back from summer break. Although summer is my favorite season and I usually never want it to end, I don’t feel sad about the seasons changing this year. That’s probably because I REALLY enjoyed my summer this year. I mean - I maximized the days, weeks, and months and made time for a lot of fun doing the things that I love. Now that the kids are back in school and summer’s just about over, I’m ready to get back into the new season. I didn’t feel right about jumping back into an interview for the first episode. Instead, I wanted to share some of my summer highlights with you and also give you a glimpse of what you can expect in the new season. Granted, some things may change as we go along, but that’s to be expected. We are constantly evolving, and the only constant is change, right?
