I know for sure that you’re enough. In fact, you’re more than enough. The world is a better place because you’re in it. Own your amazingness. Stop doubting yourself so much and just be you.
There’s no one “right” way to mother and there’s no one “right” way to build your biz. How you live your life is a reflection of your unique values. Your values are like your fingerprint; no two sets are the same. Comparing yourself to other moms and entrepreneurs robs you of joy. It also perpetuates mom shame. (Let’s all play a part in eliminating mom shame, a version of bullying.)
I believe that your wants and needs matter. It’s possible to bring them to life. You’re destined to feel how you want to feel in every area of your life; you just have to make the choice.
You NEED to make yourself a priority. Taking time for yourself is crucial, yet one of the biggest struggles as a mom. By fueling your body, mind and soul you’re refilling your tank. When your tank is full, you’re able to give to others. If you’re depleted, stressed out, and constantly on the hamster wheel there’s not much to give.
I no longer believe in “playing by the rules.” Say no to doing things the way others think you should. Instead, say yes to following your gut and making decisions aligned with your values and the vision you have for your life.
I no longer believe in the notion of being a bad mom. Instead of judging yourself, be kind. Know and trust that you’re a great mom, even on your most imperfect day.
I no longer believe in guilt. Don’t waste your (limited) energy questioning your decisions. Instead, say yes to making choices that feel good and right for you. Say yes to setting and holding boundaries that give you space to be present in all areas of your life.
Your well-being matters.
Your happiness matters (a lot).
What you want and need matters.
I am committed to creating and holding space for all of this to happen. For me. For others. (Psst…that includes you!)
I hereby give you permission to do what lights you up, take care of yourself, and trust that you’re doing a great job.
