Feeling overwhelmed, Momma?
How would you like to feel LESS stress, worry, and guilt, and MORE peace, confidence, and contentment?
None of us enjoy second-guessing all our mothering decisions or wondering if we are enough for our kids. We definitely don't function well when we allow mom guilt to weigh us down or are stressed about everything under the sun when it comes to our kids and circumstances. We certainly don't enjoy these things while ALSO trying to find our way through the added angst of a global pandemic!
But momma, we don’t have to feel these things!
A “change your thinking, change your life” mindset is our secret weapon against all the noise in our head that chides us to believe we aren’t good enough, reminds us of all our failures, and convinces us we’ll never get it right as a mom. When we shift our perspective and take control of our thoughts about ourselves and our circumstances, we grow in self-love, have more confidence, and create more space to absorb the hard parts of motherhood. I’ve adopted this mindset in my life, and I can't wait to share the practices and tools I used with you.
When we change our thinking, we change our life because so often the struggles we face are because of the negative stories we are telling ourselves about our worth and enoughness. We run scripts through our mind full of guilt and self-doubt because we don't think we'll ever get anything right as a mom. But we are better than we give ourselves credit for. Way better! And it's time we started believing this truth.
If you are looking to transform your life as a mom and make sense of the emotions that are weighing you down, come take a deep dive with me into a new way of thinking that moves you from overwhelm, anxiety, insecurity, guilt, and frustration to newfound freedom. We'll journey together as you change the way you look at things so the things you look at change.
