I just want to feel good all the time.
If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard this I’d be rich (Barenaked Ladies reference).
I’ve walked countless women through creating a vision and this is what I hear the most (and financial freedom, of course).
The thing is life is 50/50.
It’s 50% desirable and it’s 50% undesirable.
It’s the yin and yang of life on earth.
And, it’s what drives us to be more, do more, have more and experience more.
When life “gives us lemons” it makes the good times so much sweeter (think lemonade).
Motherhood is the same way. It’s 50/50. For most of the moms I know, they’ll take the undesirable parts of being a mom just to experience the sweet 50%.
Harmony in motherhood is not about the circumstances. It’s not about the 50/50. In fact harmony has nothing to do with circumstances.
Harmony in motherhood has everything to do with aligning your heart with your thoughts.
If you are feeling wonky it may be because you are not aligned.
Journal - do some inner inquiry and listen to what you discover.
What are my core values? Am I living according to them?
What is my passion? Am I living my passion?
What sparks joy in me? Am I including joy in my daily life?
Notice what you’re noticing - If you’re feeling off, stop and notice the thought you’re having. If it isn’t serving you, you’ll feel it in your body. Gently shift your focus to a thought that feels better.
Manage your mind - guide your mind or it will run amuck and go places you don’t want it to go. Just like training a puppy. When it starts to wander, gently bring it back to what YOU choose to focus on.
