So, this is what my life looked like not so far back in the past…
I had a brand new baby, I was taking both my girls to Play Centre, I was taking on responsibilities there, I was trying to be the perfect mum – attachment parenting, breastfeeding, healthy food, seeing the Naturopath, trying to never lose my temper, putting far too much pressure and too many expectations on myself.
I was trying to get Essential Mum off the ground and running, whilst working out a sales contract I held onto because we were pressured by the weight of financial stress that was so heavy I felt sick to the pit of my stomach. Many weeks we just didn’t know how we would be able to pay our bills and the mortgage.
I felt obligated in so many different directions that I didn’t know which way was up. I was stressed, I was exhausted, and by rushing from one task to the next constantly I was missing being in the moments as they happened and losing the true beauty of them.
I was disconnected from my new baby girl, my older baby girl and life itself. I was exhausted. And yet I was going over and above for the wonderful crowd of women I had attracted with Essential Mum because these women inspired me and motivated me daily. I wanted desperately to help them more than what I was doing already because in that I felt a sensed of purpose stronger than anywhere else in my life. That was when I decided to train to become a life coach.
And that was when I changed my life.
And now I have come full circle. What I mean by that is that it’s now time to share on what was so powerful for me. Because I see you; hiding behind a smile that disguises how unfulfilled you feel. I know that your “together” shell hides how inside you’re falling apart. Your silence tells me everything it needs to. I hear you because I was where you are and I want to help you.
In September I am launching my Design Your Life Ultimate Experience for 6 inspired and open mums. The steps I will take you through across 8 weeks are exactly those that I took myself through to get out of the overwhelm and focus on me and what I needed for my health and happiness. I will help you strike a balance between what you love to do and your obligations, so you’re not over-committed and exhausted. I will help you design a life that brings you happiness, every day.
I still have days where I fall apart, but what helps me come back together again is knowing the steps to get myself back into balance.
