Helping Working Moms Feeling Overwhelmed With Motherhood and Life
Why I Think You're Here
I truly believe that old adage that "where there is a will, there is a way…"
Sometimes as busy moms in motion, we feel like we have to give up our wants and needs because of the other demands on our time as Executives, Wives, Partners, Business Owners, Keeper of the House and all things kiddo. Often the Me and I get lost and we live in the “shoulds". That's not a very forgiving place. Sometimes we’re so bogged down in what has to get done that we lose a little bit.... or a lot of ourselves in the business of being mom and taking care of everyone else in your world first.
What comes with this territory is, wondering how you’re going to get "it all" done. You find yourself asking… Who am I now? How will I find time to get to the gym or meet a friend for a drink? Read? How do I feed my ambition, work AND take care of the kids?! Can I articulate what I need right now? How do I create space for myself to think and do the things that make me ME ? and am I even allowed those moments when I'm needed by my family for uh.... everything?
Being a mom is like being 10 people in one. We wear so many hats at any given time and it can be incredibly stressful and overwhelming. Once you land in this mom place, there are so many changes in your thought process, hormones, body, relationships, sleep patterns, ability to work, and ever-changing demands in your life and on your time. You may wonder if you’ll ever find peace and balance for yourself again. Whether you are a Stay at Home Mom, back in the saddle at work, or straddling the two, sometimes it’s hard to see your world objectively. It’s even hard to embrace this role with grace and confidence when you don’t feel present.
I used to feel that there weren't enough hours in the day and that used to stress me out and cause a world of negativity in my head. You don't have to be stuck in the loop! It took me a while but I learned that I could embrace a new mindset. There are choices you can make that can bring you back to center—all while accepting your new normal. By gaining some new perspective—dispelling the myths about why you can’t have certain things—you can live calmly and feel more in control of your life. Life doesn't have to happen "to" you. You have more power than that!
I’m a Mom too, living a busy life that could easily throw me out of whack if I didn’t approach it regularly with a mindful eye on balance and boundaries. Learning to identify and articulate my needs has been a journey in patience, for sure, but once you do the work to figure out what you need, you can get it. You can find your blue print. Wouldn't it feel great to have the fog clear, to re-establish some motivation and feel in control? Sometimes the hardest question to answer is "what do YOU need?"
These days I can roll with the never-ending changes while maintaining what's most important to me. Because of that, things have shifted and I have fewer shoulds in my life and more time for me. Anyone can be a Changetarian: One who gracefully rolls with the changes, allows priorities to shift in support of your best self and gets what they want out of life, unapologetically. I would be honored to help you find your way.
