My husband works all day on Saturdays. He always has. I used to hate Saturdays.
There were always explosions. And fighting. The house gets so messy. I get bored. And feel needy. And sad. With no adults to connect with. (Seriously even just one day it can hit me hard.)
But now I really love Saturdays. Not a lot has changed. Only my mindset. AND I’m much more proactive about my day instead of reactive.
So now Saturdays FEEL better. And so they are better.
The kids still fight. They still have explosions. (My son told me he hated me today and that I’m the worst mom ever.) The house is still a mess and I still get lonely.
But I don’t hate it. I love it. I totally embrace it. And really look forward to it. I plan out my day more intentionally. Schedule play dates. Get a sitter for a quick workout. Have some me time.
And because I’m in a better place I have a totally different mindset. And then I’m prepared to control my reaction when my son says he hates me because I asked him to stop playing Fort Nite.
Ahh the adventures of parenting. I love every minute of this roller coaster. I wouldn’t change a thing.
If you want to shift your mindset start with your state. And your morning routine. I have a quick and easy free video training for you: http://badassmorningroutine.com/
We CAN have it all.
As long as “it all” is whatever YOU want. There’s a lie we tell ourselves that we don’t deserve it. That there’s not enough to go around. That its hard. That we have to suffer to get it.
They’re all lies. Anchors we drop that hold our boat back from floating downstream. These lies are limiting beliefs that we begin to create from.
We create our reality through our thoughts, words and beliefs.
Why let those anchors hold you back any longer?
Drop the anchor and your boat will float naturally. You don’t need to pick up the oars. And paddle. Just…. let…. go.
Cut the rope of every anchor and let go. Your boat will turn and flow downstream. Downstream is where your dreams are. Focus on the end result of what you DO want.
Remove the limiting beliefs that are holding you back.
“I’m not enough.”
“I need to DO more.”
“I’ll be happy when I get________.”
“But my husband is so negative.”
“I don’t deserve it.”
“Who am I to have it all”
Let your boat do what comes naturally. Let it turn and flow with the river. Your desires are waiting there.
Someone asked me recently what I’m most proud. My answer was not what she expected. She expected me to say…
- Writing a book
- Or being a mom
- Or starting my business
- Or launching my coaching program
- Or my relationship with my husband
- Or my health and fitness
She rattled those off as potential ideas. But none of that is what I’m most proud of. I’m most proud… of FACING MY FEARS.
Facing my fears of being a mom, facing my fears of being a wife, facing my fears of writing a book, of coaching, of being vulnerable and being real and raw and open and putting myself out there in this world. THAT is what I’m most proud of.
That’s what moves me to tears and what keeps me going. Moving through my fears has been the most powerful thing I’ve ever done. And trust me when I say this. You can do it too.
You may not have a fear around being a mom like I did. Or around getting married. Or starting a business. But you have a fear. I know you do.
No matter what it is you CAN move through it. Once you identify it. (And I know that you know what it is…) Then you have to move past it.
Or it will own you. It has no power over you unless you let it. YOU control your reality. Face your fears… head on. Do what you thought you couldn’t do. And watch your life unfold in a bigger way then you ever imagined.
