Hi, I’m Brittany Dow

But here’s the only thing that you really need to know about me, I can help you. I want to help you, and coaching with me is never about me, it’s about you.

This is the part where I tell you all about me, my story and I get to humble brag about my own results and achievements. It’s supposed to build trust and likability. According to experts.

But here’s the only thing that you really need to know about me, I can help you. I want to help you, and coaching with me is never about me, it’s about you.

Yes, I have three kids and have an amazing husband and I have created a wonderful life of balance where I have quality relationships with my kids, my husband and myself. I have what is MY version of a picture perfect life for me and am still creating what I want my future to look like for myself, my family AND my business. I’ve done entrepreneurship both ways (the hot mess burn out way and the balanced way), and know intimately the struggles and pains of running a business and raising a family at the same time.

But it doesn’t matter if I created it for myself or if you think my life is enviable

(a marketing expert told me I should make my life seem enviable to my clients. Um no- how about I just be me?)

What matters is if I can help YOU create the life YOU want. And I can.

I believe in you. It’s time you did too.

There is a crazy thing happening out there. Positive people are secretly miserable.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Then they feel terrible for feeling terrible when they are trying so hard to be positive.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
WHAT??!!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's because in an effort to be positive and not "manifest" negative things, most people skip a very important step and do a destructive one instead.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
They skip processing the negative, and instead resist it and try to cover it up with a positive.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
This adds to the intensity of the negative emotion, with none of the relief because you can't release the tension on something that you are pretending doesn't exist. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Then you are layering on the additional thoughts and feelings that make you feel bad that you think positively and still feel terrible some times.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Or anxious.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Or overwhelmed.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Then you have an outburst, or anxiety attack.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Worry less about every thought being positive and instead intentionally choose the thoughts that create the feelings and actions you want to take from AWARENESS of what you currently think and feel - not from lala land.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Want to be happy? First acknowledge that you feel sad. That it's okay to feel sad.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Process it, release it. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
THEN choose your intentional thoughts.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Try it out. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Good things can still come from neutral and basic thoughts. Not everything has to be "santa clause at disneyland on prozac getting laid." ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
(20 points if you get the tv show reference!)

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck doing things in a way that keeps us from what we really want.

Do you want growth in your business but can’t because there is only so much of you and you’ve been doing “all the things?”

Are you taking on responsibilities in your home or as a mom that don’t serve you because you believe you have to be the one to do it all, or it has to be done a certain way?

Are you following a business model that doesn’t work and flow with your needs as a mom entrepreneur running a business from home?

Check in.

If you feel stuck, it’s not always because you don’t actually know what to do.

Most of us deep down know what we actually want or need to be doing, we just have additional thoughts of all the reasons we can’t or shouldn’t.

Those are what keeps us stuck and doing things that aren’t sustainable for long term joy and balance.

If you want to learn how to get “unstuck” from those thoughts and beliefs and create a life and business where it all works together with more joy and ease I can help you with that. DM me if you’d like to chat about how. 💕

Who has started out Monday with a list of to do's bound and determined to be productive and show up like a boss,⁠⠀
⁠⠀
only to find themselves wanting to crawl under the covers and hide from the world and their children by Tuesday?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Or using the time you said you would work organizing the spice drawer because you don't really know where to start or what to do in your business...⁠⠀
⁠⠀
but organizing spices seems productive. And well, you know how to do it. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And no one will reject you for it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
How about NEEDING your whole house to be clean and done before you can allow yourself to sit down and work because YOU JUST CAN'T with the chaos? ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Only to leave very little time and energy for work by the time you are done.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
( not to mention the frustration when you emerge from your office for a snack to find a mess waiting for you again.) ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I see you nodding.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
These things (and many more scenarios) are pretty common and it comes from a really simple oversight.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Un- awareness.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Un-awareness around our thinking, decision making, direction, essential things, how long something really takes, why we think we have to do things that we don't really need to do, perfectionism....⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So many energy draining, time consuming and mentally and emotionally exhausting cycles we find ourselves in come from simple un-awareness.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's the old saying " you can't see the forest from the trees"⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I teach my clients how to not only get awareness, but what to actually do about it once they do.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Plus, some great tools on effective scheduling. You learn how to get so much more done in less time and less energy.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
DM me if you want to learn more about how you can learn this for yourself too. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
...

Hard. Hard. Truth.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
SO MUCH EASIER to just blame the kids, or the hubby or society and lack of child care options than it is to just work on ourselves and the real things that hold us back.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Our own minds.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I'm not saying it wouldn't be nice for those things to be lined up and helping us. Just saying it's not as crucial to our success as we like to make it out to be.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Logistically is it easier to package up orders without a toddler screaming for a snack?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Maybe, maybe not. Who knows? I've heard of some pretty needy co-workers before 🤣⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But really - maybe logistically it's harder. But that's because we are using logistics and mindsets useful for different circumstances.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You need tools and mindsets that work for what YOU are trying to accomplish as a mom running a business from home.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Blaming your kids isn't doing you or them any favors.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We are already resentful for those sweet little bundles did to our bodies,🤣 lets not add the responsibility of them being the reason we didn't achieve our dreams.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
That isn't their fault, or their responsibility.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
There is no reason we can't do both, without the overwhelm and resentment.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
There is no reason it can't be easier and joyful.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And then we have the added bonus of being able to share it all with them and show them what's possible for them too when they believe in themselves and learn how to be the people they truly want to be.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I like to think of that as the most motherly gift we can give them... but that's just me.

What about you? What are your current thoughts or beliefs about that?

I’d love to hear them and get your opinions below in the comments 👇🏼👇🏼💕
...

Do you believe it's possible?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Why or why not?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Tell me what you think in the comments ⬇️
...

Seems impossible.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Especially now.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But I promise it's not.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's totally possible to be a present mom and run a successful business from home.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And still do the laundry if that's what you want.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It just takes learning and un-learning a couple of things.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We have to unlearn old mindsets and beliefs that keep us stuck, spinning, overwhelmed, resentful and anxious.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It seems hard because they are now conditioned neural pathways in the brain.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Seems hard to get rid of. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Not really with the right tools.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Tools I can help you with. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Tools that you can use to apply in any area of your life.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Tools that help you learn how to manage your mind, emotions, energy and time so you can have that balanced life and business you desire.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
One tool really, honed and applied in many different ways.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
One tool, 12 weeks. But it won't take 12 weeks to see results. You will see results by week 2. ⁠⠀
Your life could be completely different by Christmas. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Not even playing. Or trying to make outrageous sales claims. It's just true.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
DM me if you want to learn more. 💕⁠⠀

It’s seems like such a nice thought.

I mean of course we value our families, their needs and are willing to make sacrifices for those we love.

It’s a noble thought.

Except when we use it as an excuse to not work on our businesses.

Or take care of ourselves.

Or when we use it as a way to “gracefully bow out” of doing something that scares us.

We can do this with “nice thoughts” sometimes. We use them as an excuse.

Does this thought work FOR you? Or unintentionally against you?

It’s worth looking at those innocent thoughts to see if we are actually using them to hold ourselves back.

Some new thoughts you can try on if this thought isn’t working how you thought it was...

“I can easily keep my family as a priority while working and taking time for myself.”

“My family is my reason not my excuse”.

“I can prioritize effectively and efficiently for all the areas that are important to me.”

These are just some examples. They may work for you, they may not.

Try finding one that works for you? Tell me what you come up with and share for others to be helped by your thoughts to in the comments 👇🏼💕

It's a common struggle.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It can seem that there is so much to do.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It can seem as though multi-tasking and always being “on” is the only way to get it all done.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But here is what I want to offer you.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What if you are more efficient and effective when you are intentional? ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
With your time with your family, your business and even the time for yourself?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What if being present and allowing each thing it's time, energy and focus is what makes it feel so much more manageable?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I understand that that can feel impossible when an order needs to be processed and the baby is crying.

Or you are trying to write copy next to a weeks worth of laundry or dirty dishes. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I promise you though, when you stop believing that it all has to be done, and it all has to be done RIGHT NOW - you are able to create space and focus for each thing in it's own time.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And when our minds are feeling the pressure to get it all done all at once, slowing it down and challenging our thoughts works so much better.

You can do what you need/ want to do more peacefully and with more intention and effectiveness.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Try it out. The way to manage our lives and time is by first managing our thinking.⁠⠀

Promise you it’s worth learning how. It really changes everything 💕
⁠⠀
You can always reach out to me in the DMs if you want help learning how 💕
...

It's just pointing us in the direction we either need to look at, or create more of.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
As a society we spend a lot of energy and time judging, shaming, avoiding and resisting our thoughts and emotions.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Because we make them mean something about us. Usually something bad. Something painful.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But those are just thoughts and emotions too.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We have some 60,000 thoughts a day😮 and thoughts are what create our feelings.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
There is no way that 60,000 times we are changing our emotions in a day.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The neutral thoughts we rarely even notice because they have no emotional effect on us. Our brains just process it as information in, information out.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But the thoughts that create a noticeable emotion? Those ones we assigned meaning to.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Positive or negative.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Without the meaning, they are just like any of the other thoughts. Data in, data out.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In coaching and in the Balanced and Free Mom Boss Academy, one of the first things we learn as I teach how to self coach, is that we are not our thoughts.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We are a judgement shame free zone for ourselves to just explore our minds and emotions with curiosity.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
This is how we truly see what we are creating in our lives and begin to learn to process emotions fully.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Ironically doing this, actually lessens the effect of the negative emotions because we learn not to resist it (which increases it's intensity) and we're no longer layering on secondary negative emotions.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's a much more freeing way to experience our emotions and become aware of our thinking.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Give it a try. As always I am here to help you learn this for yourself in the Academy. ( link to join in bio)⁠⠀

When I first stumbled on the tools and concepts I now teach other women, all I was looking for was to figure out how to get some of my freedom back.

Like a lot of moms, I just wanted to feel like I had some control over my life again instead of feeling like I was indefinitely at the mercy of little people, obligations and responsibilities.
No matter how much I loved them.

I was burned out and looking for relief.

What I learned in coaching myself and then in coaching certification allowed me to do sooo much more than that.

I was able to apply these tools in many areas of my life, finally creating that balance I thought was impossible to get.

There was genuine joy and ease in my life, now my business, my relationships and my day to day.

I’ve let go of so many limiting beliefs and been able to grow love, confidence and self trust.

I’ve taken back all the power back in my own life, and none of my circumstances had to change to do it.

When I say this changes lives I mean it. I’ve done it for myself and other women just like you.

If you are ready for this in your life, I’d love to show you how.

Ah - the anthem of 2020.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The cancelled events, vacations, milestone moments celebrated alone.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The sick being cared for in isolation. The loss without connection or proper good byes.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Babies being born and not being able to be welcomed in person.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The loss of our tribes and support systems and some jobs. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The homeschooling, the unrest, the devastation, the mental and emotional vulnerabilities exposed and exploited.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's very easy to say and believe ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
"It's not supposed to be this way." ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
No one would think twice or blame you for it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But I have never found that to be a useful thought.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Now, I am not saying to not grieve the loss of things we thought would be.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But resisting reality just increases our negative experience with little hope for relief.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It compounds the overwhelm, the disempowered feeling. We become stuck as victims.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Whatever we resist, we make stronger.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I personally find more comfort and use believing that it was always supposed to be this way and trusting it's all for my good and growth in some way.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Because it is this way. It is reality.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It allows me to reassess, re-evaluate and make changes to my thoughts, feelings or actions. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Which lead to a change in my experience of it all. And what I can create from it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I can do something about it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I can create a different result, a different feeling - which eventually impacts my circumstances.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Resisting reality and wanting to believe it's not supposed to be this way, and denying what is, keeps me stuck in sad, lonely world with no power no hope.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Because you can't change what isn't real.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you want to learn a little more about this - or you're just curious how you can open yourself up to this possibility to give yourself some relief⁠⠀

Moment of silence for the ideas, dreams and goals lost to perfectionism. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The second guessing,the hours ruminating and working on things that will never see the light of day.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The searching and stressing over the "right way to do it"⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Then the shame, fear and anxiety cycles you experience if you do put it out into the world.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The tweaking and revising. The worry the doubt. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The PROCRASTINATION. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The all or nothing mentality. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's all just fear of of failure and rejection wrapped up in a pretty word we call 🎀 perfectionism.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Telling ourselves we are striving for perfection or have high standards is just our brains protecting ourselves from the truth.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You are scared.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And that's okay.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But you are trying to be perfect or produce perfect things in order to avoid fear and the pain of failure or rejection.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Except you are feeling it ahead of time. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You reject yourself over and over and over again in attempts to get things perfect.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You fail over and over and over again every time you tell yourself it's not good enough and never finish or put it out there.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You are creating all the things you are trying to avoid. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Without the reward of joyfully creating or doing something.⁠⠀
Or fully allowing ourselves to be ourselves and loving unconditionally.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Our minds are tricky little things aren't they?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Go check out my podcast episode on Perfectionism if you want to learn more about how our minds do this to us, and what you can do now to help alleviate it. ⁠⠀

Easier said than done I know.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But also, it might just be easier than you think. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You don't have to keep spinning and draining your energy and focus in indecision, busy action, and trying to do all the things all the time.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You don't have to keep "trying all the things" and wasting time and energy trying to find the "thing" that will finally make it all work.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You don't have to "juggle" it all. Juggling is for clowns 🤡 You're not a clown. ⁠⠀
(unless of course you are a birthday party stand in, then clown away)⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Instead you can play a game of chess. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Purposefully, and intentionally making moves.⁠⠀
One at a time. ⁠⠀
Knowing it all is for the same goal. ⁠⠀
Some pieces you willing give up in order to progress the game, and others are key players that you hold onto because they are essential to the goal.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Look at me talking about chess like I know something! ha! It's been a hot minute since I've played, but the analogy still works.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Make less moves that make more impact towards the goal you are trying to achieve.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Give up the juggle. You will never be able to keep them all in the air.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Seem impossible? ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Want to say no, Brittany. You just don't understand my life?!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Yeah, you are right. I don't. But I do understand our minds. And the mind is the key to it all. ⁠⠀
Manage the mind, you manage your life. Regardless of your circumstances.⁠⠀

Can't wait to help you stop juggling all the things!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
...

📣The thing that is stopping you or standing in your way isn't because you don't know how.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's because you haven't built up the trust or belief in yourself yet that it's possible for you and that you can figure it out.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Because if you believed those two things you would already be doing the dang thing ( c'mon - say it in your head with the accent)⁠⠀
⁠⠀
One of the things that has served me well in my life is knowing that if I want it, or need it, I'll figure it out.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I trust myself to learn new things, try new things, practice and fail at new things. And then rinse and repeat. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The how is never the real problem. It's just logistics. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
There are a million and one ways to do something. It's just a matter of being willing to do and find the one that works for you. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What would change in your life if you believed what you really want is possible?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
No asterisks or waiting on circumstance or other people to change or give it to you - that it was possible for you. Full stop.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Because the truth is, that thing nagging at you. Pulling at you... It's there because you know it's for you.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So if you have been ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
- Procrastinating⁠⠀
⁠⠀
- Avoiding Responsibility⁠⠀
⁠⠀
- Taking Passive Action.... (busy action to "feel" like you are doing something knowing it isn't really the big scary, committed action you need to be taking to get what you want.)⁠⠀
⁠⠀
- Waiting for everything to fall into place...⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I want to pose a question to you. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Do you truly believe it's possible for you? ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Do you fully trust your ability to be able to figure it out and achieve it?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What would change if you did?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Come check out my podcast ( Balanced and Free Mom Boss Podcast) and get real tips, tricks and mindset help to help you build that belief that it's possible for you.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
That's truly where it all starts. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Spinning keeps you stuck. It keeps you from balance and freedom.⁠⠀

He hates pictures but he loves me 💕

A few nights ago we went for a “linner” and some outdoor shopping and I got my son to take a quick pic on the way out.

I gotta tell you, you’d think getting a quick out the door pic wouldn’t be a production. But getting a teenage boy to take a pic and my husband to pretend like he enjoyed it means it always takes sooooo much longer.

( I ended up sitting down to try and simplify the process 🤣🤣)

But this is what happens when we people please right? We don’t want to do it, so we do it but resist and then no one is happy.

And here’s the thing- I appreciate my son and my husband doing something for me simply because they love me.

My frustration came from my unconscious expectation that they give me the same result as if they loved it!

I had thoughts like- can I just get a quick picture where you actually look like real life for a second?!

(I have the opposite problem where we are laughing and having a good time and the camera comes out and all of the sudden everyone’s faces look like the Addams Family!) 😂😂

I have thoughts like “why are you all so difficult and lame?!” “Just be normal!”

I started to feel frustrated and was blaming them. When I caught myself I was able to see my thoughts that “they should be doing it different” was where my frustration was coming from.

So I took responsibility. I decided to be okay with whatever pic came next and choose to feel loved because I had two people willing to do something they hate for me.

Then I felt love and appreciation for them and we went on to have a great day.

Without frustration, resentment or needing anyone to be different from who they are or change how they behave💕💕

Thoughts create feelings and your experiences guys. No one has to be any different for you to feel different if that’s what you want 💕💕

And you know what? I love the pic. And I love him 😍
...

Trying to get results without really knowing what the goal or result is that you want is like trying to hit a target blindfolded. 🏹⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You will be scattered, inconsistent and rarely accurate in your aim and execution. (ie: ineffective and un related actions and results)⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Maybe you have a vague idea of being more calm.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Being more successful.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Being happier.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But those are feelings, not results. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Feelings you can choose to feel any day under any circumstance. It just requires you to think thoughts that create that feeling for you.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But results and goals are specific.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Maybe it's the number of clients you have or the number of dinners you sit down to as a family in a week.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Maybe it's a specific revenue goal or weight goal.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Maybe it's a personal growth development or creating something.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It doesn't matter what it is, or why you want it. It only matters that YOU know what it is and why you want it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Just get specific. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What is the clear end result you want to achieve?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Not having clarity leaves you spinning and busy in action. Using a ton of energy but not necessarily getting results.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's pretty hard to be balanced while achieving your goals and desired results when you are spinning and stuck in "busyness" instead of intentional action moving you forward.⁠⠀

And you thought it was just your toddler making you tired! 🤗⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We make hundreds of decisions every day - big and small.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We subconsciously weigh the pros and cons of each decision, and each decision not made creates an open brain loop in our minds.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Have trouble making decisions? Worry about making the "wrong" choice. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Lacking clarity and direction in our top over all priorities, goals and desired results can make it hard to make decisions. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Indecision adds to the fatigue and overwhelm.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Making decisions - even small ones ahead of time can minimize that.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What you will wear or eat. ⁠⠀
What you will post for content.⁠⠀
What day you mop the floors.⁠⠀
What day you schedule client calls.⁠⠀
What day you run numbers and evaluations in your business and set your essential tasks.⁠⠀
How many activities you allow in a week.⁠⠀
What day you take off.⁠⠀
What day you make appointments on.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The list is endless of decisions you can make that give clarity and direction, but still allow flexibility for life, business and motherhood.⁠⠀

Would you ever guess that taking responsibility would bring joy?!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you had told me that a few years ago I would have said..⁠⠀
⁠⠀
"Hmm that's a nice wall quote. But how am I supposed to take responsibility for things I didn't do?!"⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I was knee deep in belief that my kids caused my emotions, ny husband too, my circumstances caused my emotions, my past caused my emotions, other people caused my emotions...⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And it kept me spinning. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And powerless.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And in a place where I couldn't have achieved balance and freedom in my life if it were handed to me on a silver platter.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What changed it all?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Taking responsibility. For. It. All.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Our brains want to tell us that doing that is not safe. That could not be more opposite from the truth.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We have all the power back when we do that. We don't have to be victims and relying on others to feel how we want to feel and think how we want to think about ourselves.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We think that it means letting others off the hook for their bad behavior, or terrible things they have done to us. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But wanting to hold on to that pain is actually the thing that chains us to those people and events for however long we allow it. We keep inviting them back into our lives over and over again to have power over us.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Wanting to hold on to excuses about our circumstances (ie: kids, money, covid ect.) chains us to those circumstances and feelings as well as our subsequent actions and results - for as long as we allow. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You want to welcome yourself into the land of balance and freedom? The welcome sign is marked " Responsibility"⁠⠀
