Navigating the waters of motherhood while trying to keep yourself above the waves is HARD. So many of the mothers I know are exhausted, depleted and overwhelmed. So I started asking myself why? What is it about mothers that make them push themselves so hard or so far? Why do we have such a self-sacrificing nature?
Maybe it appears to be admirable to do it all, be it all and have it all, and keep our suffering silent under the WEIGHT of it all.
But is that really true? If we give from empty hearts, empty bodies and empty souls – are we really giving our best to those we love? And what exactly are we teaching them about loving themselves – by neglecting, hating or abusing ourselves?
Mama, let me ask you a question. Do you love yourself? Do you really love yourself well?
Don’t worry – you are not alone. Millions of mothers have forgotten how to love themselves. We have forgotten what it takes to give abundantly to our children, our passions and our lives, from a place of wellness. Instead we chase idealized versions of ourselves – and half the time they aren’t even our ideals, they’re for someone else.
It takes self-love to really look within. It takes self-care to mother yourself. It takes self-compassion to get up after you fall down. It takes self-worth to show up exactly as who you are.
You just have to start with a little bit every single day to make sure your cup is filled, so that it can overflow onto others and into the rest of your life.
One on One Coaching for Moms
Coaching is really just another way of saying supporting or guiding. I want to support and guide you through your own tough waters so that you can emerge on the other side happier, more at peace and able to actually enjoy more of your life. Your tough waters will look different from everyone else’s and that’s exactly what one-on-one coaching is for.
Let’s chat to see how I can best help you. Your first Connection Chat with me is always free! I offer several ways to make these sessions happen for busy moms. We can chat in person over coffee if you’re local (Upstate SC), on the phone, video chat or Facetime, or even text if that’s the best way for you to get a feel for coaching.
