I remember how I used to think that once the kids were older, I would finally have more time for all that I had put aside; that I would begin starting on all the amazing ideas that I placed on hold; and that I can focus on my health again, my social life, and my marriage. Reality check: with each year, more was landing on my plate – the kids grew a social life that I had to coordinate and drive around for; activities they wanted to enjoy; and school required much more from them (and us)…
until I was finally hit with the realization that as they are growing into little individuals with their own needs and wants, mine were getting more and more pushed to the side.
I grew exhausted, and I couldn’t take it anymore.
The less I did for myself, the crankier and more resentful I grew – but I never dared to actually show that, or admit it, because “mommy guilt” would kick into full gear, and before I knew it, I spiraled into unproductive thinking. My time grew harder to manage, and my soul and life weren’t as nourished. Deep down I knew I could be much more fulfilled and happier.
I just had no idea how to do it, and how to begin.
Some things I started, and then dropped once again, because my “to do list”, and daily responsibilities took over. I always felt like there was just never enough time in a day, and never enough time to fill my own cup, and honor me.
Until one day, my coach at the time had me realize how much more I can actually give to my beautiful family, if I gave more to myself – if I lived a daily life where I felt empowered and fulfilled. Doing what I was meant to do, and felt amazing doing it.
If I could give from a “full cup” (instead of my “half cup”), I would no longer be dragged down by resentment, mommy guilt, exhaustion, depletion, and all else that I was experiencing.
Be letting go of certain ideas, and attachments, and by creating new habits, I began creating more time in my day; more structure, boundaries, and actually enjoying life in the way that I wanted to enjoy it!
With action and commitment, I began to experience more vitality, clarity, time, joy and even be a more attuned parent with my children.
My life was changing.
Once I took leadership in my personal life, I was able to bring leadership into my parenting, and eventually into my community. Now I’m beyond grateful that I am doing the work that I love, helping not just my family, but helping others create a family, business and life that they love.
If we all start from within, we can ultimately bring our joy and transformation out into the world.
Many have asked how I’m able to do so much in my advocacy, while at the same time run a few successful businesses, enjoy my marriage, and my friends, while also raising wholesome, healthy kids. I often share various tips on how to make this all possible, and take my clients through whatever they need in order to shift their limiting beliefs.
One area every single person I’ve worked with gets stuck in…is time management, and structure. “How Can I Make All This Possible?” comes up every time. Once my clients take leadership on time, all flows much effortlessly, and they begin to enjoy all those wonderful things that feed their soul.
Seeing how valuable and helpful it was, I’ve put together a free, time management tool that can help get you started.
May this be one of the ways to support you in creating the life, family and business you love!
As always, if you have any questions or comments, I’m here for you, and I answer all my emails.
