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"⁠⠀

Do you ever feel like you've been busy all day, but when you try to really pin point what you accomplished it's hard to put a finger on exactly what you did?⁠ (🙋‍♀️ hello first year of every child of mines life 😂)⠀
⁠⠀
Maybe it's cause your toddler followed you around and undid it all after you did it, ( got love them) ⠀

or maybe you are more in "reactive action" mode instead of "intentional action" mode.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you are in reactive mode you may:⁠⠀
⁠⠀
- Feel a bit scattered⁠⠀
- Busy, but not really seeing the results you want⁠⠀
- Always forgetting something⁠⠀
- Lacking clarity⁠⠀
- Trouble focusing and finishing tasks⁠⠀
- Find it hard to make clear decisions and act on them⁠⠀
- Jump from one task to the next without intentionally ending and starting a new one ( squirrel! 🐿️)⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Just to name a few.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
One of the biggest shifts you can make to start getting more balance and freedom in your life and business is to identify your essential tasks; the ones that get you closer to your goal and intentionally choose those.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Whatever your goals are for your home, your business, in your relationships ... you get the picture.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Know the difference in staying busy, and making progress.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Even if it's just small tiny progress, it will be more effective and meaningful than just being busily doing things that are keeping you stuck and spinning. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
(I’ve also got another good tip in my stories today on getting more done without the burnout or not finishing tasks)⠀

But if you feel like you may want some extra help in this area...⠀

Knowing the difference in tasks importance, finishing tasks and getting more done in less time...⠀

They are not a unicorn. 🦄 You are not a troll 😂⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Weird comparison, but really. There is nothing special or magical about other people.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
They weren't hit with unicorn dust at birth and some how you got hit with troll dust.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We all have different talents or purposes, but the only thing that they MAY be doing different than you is believing in themself.⁠
⁠⠀
Showing up the best way that they know how.⁠ And embracing what they don’t know yet without beating themselves up.
⁠⠀
(and probably NOT posting their lows to instagram)⁠⠀🙃
⁠⠀
Everyones life is 50/50 . Both negative and positive. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
No way around it.⁠⠀

Even the influencer wearing silk pajamas and eating a croissant in her “woke up like this” pic with the French Rivera in the background.
⁠⠀
Question is - what do you want to do with YOUR 50 /50 in this life?⁠⠀

If you were working from home as a mom pre-COVID, I’m going to take a guess it was because you wanted to be able to provide and contribute to your family and still have time to be there with your kids.

Maybe you had other reasons, but if your reason was because you wanted time, freedom, and money to live the life you dreamed of WHILE enjoying and being present with your family and it hasn’t quite been going that way, I get it.

What was supposed to give you back your time and joy, feels now like a never ending to do list.

Being present with your family can feel so hard when there is so much to be done. (and they keep undoing it 🙃😂)

Add in homeschool teacher and things can feel a bit stretched thin. You want to connect with your child, and now you find yourself wanting to rip your hair out over second grade math. Good times.

If you are wanting to get back to what you originally envisioned when you decided to run a business from home:

💛Freedom,
💛Enjoying and being present with your family,
💛creating and contributing with something that lights you up...

I want you to know it is possible, and I’ve got something to help you do that.

Us moms do so much, and often feel like there is always more to be done.

There is an easier way. It is possible.

Calling all - Perfectionists. People pleasers. People who often lack boundaries.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You are feeding your fears by ruminating. ⁠⠀
Procrastinating. ⁠⠀
Over promising. ⁠⠀
Over committing. ⁠⠀
Not being honest.⁠⠀
Shrinking yourself. ⁠⠀
Second guessing. ⁠⠀
Working forever on tasks. ⁠⠀
Constantly tweaking (your tasks, not drugs people 😂)⁠⠀
Not caring for yourself or needs. ⁠⠀
Giving others power over your emotions, choices and actions. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Your fear of failure, rejection, shame and anxiety all has opportunity to rise up in all those ways listed above. ⁠⠀
Your brain thinks it's keeping itself safe, but really its driving you to create the very things you are fearful of. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Rejecting yourself, failure to realize your own dreams, shaming yourself ahead of time, feeling anxious all the time about all the fears you are creating while trying to avoid them.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Kind of crazy how our brains do this to us.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You're perfectly normal, but you are stuck in a cycle.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And that cycle makes it really difficult to create, achieve or maintain balance in your life or business.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And if you want help breaking free from that cycle,⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I want to offer you some other thoughts. Ones that may help. Totally up to you - take it or leave it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What if knowing your capabilities and being realistic and honoring them helps you be more successful? ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What if failure and rejection were optional? That it's all in how your mind frames it?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
That shame is just a feeling caused by thoughts, and you are the creator of your thoughts.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
That it's within your power to change all of those things?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Seems simplistic. Maybe even too good to be true - too easy. But it's true. Are you open to seeing it?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What would be different in your life without those thoughts and beliefs?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Worth the ask.⁠⠀
⁠⠀

...

Guilt is optional.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In fact I would challenge that it's even guilt. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Guilt says "I've done something wrong."⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Shame says "You are wrong"⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Either one is optional.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
They are just feelings caused by the thought that you should be doing all the things.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
That the home, mom and all business tasks (and now schooling) are your responsibility to carry all the weight off.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
That it needs to be you keeping it all together all the time - even if you feel like you clearly are not.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You think - You're supposed to.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Optional.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
All optional.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Just thoughts.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Not truths.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Not facts.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You get to decide what you do and why.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Make sure you like your reasons.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You don't ever HAVE to do anything.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Somethings we choose because we don't want the consequence of not doing it. But it's still a choice.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You will ALWAYS have a choice about how you think, feel, act and the results you get from those choices. You are an adult.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Want a quick exercise that can help? Take a minute and re-choose what you want to do, and consider letting go or finding alternatives for the things that you don't really want.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Here's a thought to try on " Everything is a choice, and everything is optional."⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Whats one thing you want to let go or find an alternative for? ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⬇️ ⬇️ Tell me in the comments below⁠⠀
⁠⠀
...

Your value and worth is set. You have and always will be "enough". ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Nothing you do or don't do adds or takes away from your "enoughness" (totally just made up that word thank you.)⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You have full permission to fully embrace it all.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You are allowed to have bad days, low productivity days, days where you just decompress and keep the humans alive and the business wheels spinning.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In fact, I encourage it. I encourage you to even do it on purpose. Give yourself permission to rest. Reset.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Allow yourself days or moments of your day where you just feel and process your emotions and thoughts.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's all okay.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Nothing has gone wrong.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You are always enough.

Tag a mom friend and remind them they are enough too 💕
...

Do you feel like you are always multi -tasking, not fully present or constantly "on"? 😫⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Do you laugh at the idea of "free-time" or self-care?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Have you just decided that you don't have time for things and that's just your life now?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Even before 2020 moms and especially working from home moms have thought and felt the same way.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Battling guilt, and feelings that they aren't doing enough or selfish if they take time for themselves.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But I just want to remind you that all those things are just thoughts. Just old limiting beliefs. It's not fact, even if it feels super true.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You can choose how you want to think and feel about intentionally including time into your life for you. And I am not talking meeting your basic needs like showering or hiding in a closet when you've reached your limit.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I am talking real intentional time for you to grow as a human and recharge.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Whatever that may look like for you.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's available to you to set up your days, homes and businesses to be easier, more joyful and balanced. Where they grow together and compliment eachother instead of sacrificing and competing for time, focus and energy.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Even if it seems like so far away from where you are now, believing it's possible for you is always an option.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What would you do today if you believed it was possible?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What would you think, feel or do to make time for yourself. Even if it's just 10 min a day?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⬇️ ⬇️ Tell me in the comments below and tag another mom friend who needs the reminder too!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
...

Who wants to smack me for saying it right now?! 😆 Hard truth I know.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
When you are feeling stressed, scattered, burned out, under appreciated, overwhelmed and un-supported, lacking time, energy or joy...⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It isn't going to change anything by⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Hiding⁠⠀
Avoiding⁠⠀
Retail Therapy⁠⠀
Food / Drink Therapy⁠⠀
Yelling⁠⠀
Crying⁠⠀
Complaining⁠⠀
Staying Busy⁠⠀
Making Passive Aggressive Sarcastic comments (as funny as they may be at times 🤣 btw this is absolutley my go-to)⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Sure, it may take the edge off for a second. But the problem is still there and often our "edge off behaviors" end up amplifying it in the end.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And it certainly doesn't help to shame ourselves, deny ourselves, judge or feel guilt for wanting or needing the help. Pretending is just that. Pretending. More work with non of the benefits.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You aren't "less than" for it, you haven't "failed" if you want/need help and you're not "doing it wrong" . Those are all just thoughts and beliefs keeping you stuck. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Your aren't more of a person or less than. Your value and worth doesn't change with how little or how much help you get and accept. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You are simply a person who gets to show up for their life, business and as a mom in a way they truly want to be, and enjoying it more. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
No shame in that at all. Actually, it's kind of empowering when you think about it. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So whatever help you need right now. Ask for it. Just go for it girl! ⁠⠀

One of the most common reasons I see why moms struggle to have balance and eventually give up believing it’s even possible for them, is because they are unintentionally believing one of these lies...

Have you been believing one or more of them?

Have you felt frustrated and stressed by all your efforts to find more balance and joy in your life and business? Time for yourself, relationships and time with your kids? Only to not see much progress or be discouraged at the high expectations “balance” seems to have?
