Today I was SUPERMOM!

Today I was SUPERMOM!

My Super Power is – Being a Mom!

Today I had some play dates and ran errands with them. I got dinner on the table and watched a fun movie, had a tickle fest, and rode bikes to get ice cream.

And… I yelled at them. (Like screamed my head off) And sent them to their rooms. Together and separately … and said “oh my fucking God” under my breath about 50 times in just a few hours.

You see this is what it’s like to be a parent … and I don’t care if you judge me!

No, I’m not proud of it. And yes I’m always striving to do better. But I also know how NORMAL it is.  I get that we’re ashamed of it. But raising kids is not easy. If you can do it without raising your voice or flying off the handle you need to write a book, raise my children and become President of the world.

Because, seriously, that’s nearly impossible.

If you’re raising young kids. Especially if they’re as active and explosive and bold and fearless as mine, and you yell sometimes … I want you to know, YOU ARE NOT ALONE! and on top of that, you’re doing a DAMN GOOD JOB!

Are the kids alive? Are you alive? Great job momma! Seriously. We’re way too hard on ourselves.

I find a lot of relief in finding the balance between accepting myself, forgiving myself and striving to do better. I’m ok with that, and so far so are my kids.

So maybe we can be not proud but also not ashamed. And maybe we can cheer each other on when we’re super moms. Maybe we can teach our kids in the process how to radically accept themselves and that shit’s gonna hit the fan sometimes and how to move through it and laugh and forgive and go out for ice cream.

What I do know is every day is a new day. And every day we are here is precious. No regrets!

I Used To Be That Girl!

I Used To Be That Girl!

I used to be the girl …

The girl who drank 5 or 6 nights a week, and couldn’t say no to a party.  Who slept until noon as often as possible.  Who blew off engagements because she was hung over.

Who never worked out.  

Who never fed her mind.  

The girl who gossiped about people, and judged people.

Who ate McDonald’s, Taco Bell and White Castle.  Who drank sugar filled Starbucks drinks daily.  

Who had more self-doubt then she did belief.

Who didn’t think she was enough.  Not smart enough. Not capable enough Not worthy enough and not lovable.

Now I’m the girl…

Who wakes up early.  

Who begins her day in gratitude.  

Who reads affirmations and says them out loud.

Who meditates and visualizes, and uses a chakra kit.

Who shows up for her friends day or night or 3 am if they need her.  

Who shows up for herself and completes what she starts.  Who puts her self-care first. And makes her health a priority.

Who has more positive self-talk than negative.  

Who eats super-foods daily. Who takes supplements daily.

Who loves on her husband daily!

Who sets annual goals. Quarterly goals. Monthly goals and weekly goals.  Who tracks and measures her daily habits to stay on track.

And who will never settle for who she was before.

I’m that girl now – and if I am that girl – then anything is possible!

Who are you?

Saturday’s are amazing … and awful.

Saturday’s are amazing … and awful.

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/
