One of Those Days in Motherhood

Uncategorized Jan 08, 2021

The other day I woke up late (missed my morning routine), spilled coffee on my white blouse (honestly I should never wear white) and then I couldn’t get on Zoom (I was facilitating the meeting).

I was having “one of those days” (not unusual in my life as a mom with ADHD).

Have you ever had a day (or a year - ahem 2020) that felt like that?

It’s tempting to think that these things are happening TO you.  That you’re powerless and destined for more of the same.

This couldn’t be further from the truth.  You are incredibly powerful.  Just look at your life.  You created it all.

Your energy at any given time determines the way you see the world and the way the world sees you. 

So, if you’re looking at the world from a place of victim-hood and lack, you’ll see and experience more victim-hood and lack.

And, if you are looking at the world from a place of abundance and empowerment you’ll see and experience more abundance and empowerment.

Try this trio next time you begin to notice these dis-empowering TO me thoughts.

3 Steps for Shifting Your Mom Life Perception From Lack to Abundance

  1. Pause – this will give you a chance to respond instead of react.
  2. Breathe – find some stillness; take 3 deep belly breaths to reset your nervous system;  in through the nose for 3 and out through the mouth for 6 
  3. Mantra – choose a mantra that expresses how you would like to BE in the situation. Repeat the mantra to yourself.  Ex. Inhale ~ I AM calm, Exhale ~ I AM peaceful

It took me decades to realize that circumstances don’t dictate how I experience my life (and neither does ADHD).  I’ve got the power!   

And so do you!
