How to relieve the pressure in your life as a single mom


There’s so much pressure for women to do more and be more.  When it comes to being a single mom, you may feel extra pressure to make up the difference for your kids and their life’s circumstances.  In this episode, Molly speaks to the pressures you typically feel as a single mom and how to relieve some of those pressures.  She talks about the internal and external pressures that create so much stress for you.

She’ll cover:

  • What pressure is and where it comes from
  • How sifting through your own expectations of yourself can provide you some relief.
  • Noticing patterns of achievement that wear you out, rather than move you forward in life.
  • Letting go of trying to “make up the difference” for your kids.
  • What to do when friends or family members have judgements about how you’re living your life.

Are you powerful? (p.s. read this blog all the way to the end)

I think you’re powerful.

And what I think, might actually matter.

Someone once told me in a low moment that I was, “powerful and vibrant.”

I didn’t think I was at the time, but I decided to believe him.

I decided to think that he saw something in me that I couldn’t see.

I wondered if it was true.

And if it was true – what might be possible?

I decided to believe it and I moved forward with determination. 

(I tell more about this story on the podcast here – it’s a good one)

With that belief, I built my business. I wrote a book. I helped my kids through the divorce process. I trained hundreds of life coaches over the space of a couple of years. I rebuilt my life one day, one emotional breakdown, and one triumph at a time.

Not because of what or who I was… but because of what I believed. 

What do you believe?…
What if you are powerful?
Vibrant? Capable? Brilliant? Determined?
What’s possible then?

Decide it’s true.

Allow that belief to move you forward to create exactly the life you want.  I know you can.

How to believe in yourself


Hear Molly’s own story about her home refinance and deciding to believe in herself and her future. She shares her own doubts and fears and how she was able to overcome them.  She also acknowledges that strength and personal empowerment doesn’t come without doubts and fears to overcome.
She covers:

  • How belief in yourself can propel you forward
  • Your belief doesn’t need to be void of doubts and fears
  • The importance of borrowing on other’s beliefs in you
  • Why anyone can accomplish anything they set their mind to
  • Your divine potential and worth

do it your way

This week on the podcast I interviewed my good friend Sherry, who talked about her ninja skills as a single mom of 5 kids.

She doesn’t think they’re ninja skills, but I can see so clearly that they are.

Her divorce was the last thing she wanted.
5 kids, finances, life… all on her shoulders.

And the bravest thing she did… was doing things her way, rather than thinking that someone else knew what was best for her family.

More often than not, that meant laughing with her kids daily, rather than having family home evening at 5:30pm each Monday night.

Sometimes it meant rejuvenating from a long work week on Sunday with a quiet day at home, rather than dragging her crew to church.

It meant releasing the guilt and taking care of herself and her needs, so she could be the woman and mom she really wanted to be.

Her ninja skills are too many to count.

A few of my favorites are…

Her ability to love her kids like crazy.

Her gift of connecting with them and meeting them where they are.

Her creativity in figuring out how to do life.

And the best… her commitment to staying true to herself and what’s best for her – no matter what anyone else thinks.

Sherry was my walking buddy, shoulder to cry on, and my mentor in dating after divorce.

I love her and I bet you will too.

Boss Mom

One of my former clients sent me her success story last week.

She had her second baby last year while growing her business. She set some goals that seemed big and scary…

And she met them.

She had plans in her brain about what she wanted to do…

And she did them.

She is creating her life, rather than being at the effect of it.

One of my favorite things about her is that she is clear on her priorities and what she really wants.

She hired me to help her make her life happen – the way she wanted it to.

Brilliant.

Are you true to your priorities? Do you create what you want? Are you willing to believe that more is possible for you?

I hope you’ll consider it.

Have an amazing day, one thought at a time!
