I get it. I so get it. Life can be hard.
Life can be tough at any time, but as a mom it’s especially so. We have these whole other layers of guilt, fear, shame busyness and overwhelm simply because we’re a mom.
Being fully and completely responsible for so much more than just ourselves takes a toll on us.
Thankfully, I have a great morning routine. Each morning, I have a process that I follow to get myself into an awesome state first so I can handle the challenges that’ll come my way every day as a busy mom.
I’ll share what happened to me the other morning:
An introductory call was set up and on my schedule with a gentleman in Bali. I knew he was considering involving me in his upcoming project as a Law of Attraction Coach and I was very excited to learn more about it.
30 minutes before the call, I made the mistake of deciding to wash and brush my daughter’s hair. She has super curly hair and hates to brush it out so it’s always a big task. As I was doing her hair, I was thinking to myself, “Oh, my gosh, what am I thinking?”
Just as I finished up, the call comes in and I had to rush my daughter out of the room. Of course, she didn’t think we were finished and took to banging on the other side of the door for my attention. All she wanted was for me to braid a lock of her hair but her timing was way off.
I had to retreat into my Morning Routine
Breathe in. Breathe out. Stay Calm.
It turned out to be a wonderful call. At the end of it, I won the result I was after: the man from Bali invited me to be a coach on his amazing documentary that’ll teach women how to manifest their ideal life vision. How perfect is that? Can you feel how excited I am about it?
As soon as we finished up the call, I went to check on my daughter and ask if she was OK. By that time though, she’d completely forgotten what she was upset about. When I asked her if she wanted a piece of her hair braided, she came back with “Oh yeah, no big deal.”
Just to amp up the stress factor, we also had an overflowing toilet this morning.
Plus our stolen car that went missing a couple of weeks ago, was just found last night.
Sometimes I feel like if it’s going to happen, it’ll happen to me.
So I get it. That all happened. So much stress.
I have just as many challenges as any Mom out there.
What I wanted to share with you today is that I’ve found a way to move through those challenges with as much peace and joy as possible.
I know that you totally get it and I totally get you.
You are not alone! That’s what the Badass Mom Society is all about. I would love to hear from you there!
