57: The Path to Your Best Self with Mary Ostrowski


The path to our best self is usually not a straight one. Do you agree?

We are constantly reinventing ourselves and writing new chapters in our stories!

In this episode, I am talking to Mary Ostrowski all about learning to be confident and resilient, even from a young age.

Mary Ostrowski is an educator and author. She likes to say her babies are unconventional in that she doesn’t have any of her own, but as a preschool owner and consultant to both parents and schools, she has many! She is devoted to helping parents raise their children to be confident, resilient and to have a love for learning. 

Mary’s work consists of three pillars. She is the owner of a quintessential preschool in Annapolis, MD. She is the author of Drip, Drop and Drizzle, a creativity journal for children 8-12, with just enough of an academic thread throughout to be a great option either in the home or in elementary school classrooms. She is also the founder of The Drizzle Effect, a consulting business with the singular focus of helping build kids’ confidence through literacy and the arts.

In Today’s Episode, We Discuss: 

  • The confidence children gain once they find their independence
  • Understanding how kids discover who they are and who they want to be
  • Why it’s okay to reinvent yourself as you grow
  • The reason some stories stick with us as children and adults
  • How to instill confidence in children
  • Why stories and books serve as useful tools to understand different perspectives and feelings
  • The importance of being mindful

I hope you are inspired to share your story, learn from others and reinvent yourself when you feel like you need to!

Remember, the sky’s the limit!
