he was furious

My son was furious with me this week.

He wanted to do something and I said no.

I didn’t think it was in his best interest at all.

I say yes most of the time – whenever I can.

But this time, it was a no.

He threw a teenage tantrum. He said mean things to me. He was unreasonable and pushing every last limit in the way he was behaving.

And I decided it was okay. I held the line. I drew some personal boundaries for myself and let him freak out in the way he wanted to, as long as it didn’t cross into my space.

Sometimes your kids don’t like what you have to say, and maybe that’s okay.

They can think and feel a lot of negative things about you, and it doesn’t mean you’re doing something wrong.

You can stay peaceful, even when they aren’t.

Give it a try.

Have a great day -one thought at a time!

let’s talk

This week I spoke with Carrie on the phone.

She is recently divorced and ready to have a fresh start.

The problem is… she doesn’t know where to begin.

She defined her life as being a wife and a mom for so long. Her identity was one in the same with family life.

Since getting divorced she has begun to see herself as an individual, and it’s kind of fun.

At the same time, she feels a little lost at what happens next in her life.

It’s like all of the limits that were there, are now gone. She gets to make up new rules, come up with new ideas, and decide what she wants her life to look like.

If you want to join me, Carrie and other women creating a fresh start in 2019 – CLICK HERE to talk with me.

And for today, just start to think – if the old rules no longer apply…

What do you want your life to look like?
Who do you want to be?
How do you want to feel about yourself?
What do you want to believe is possible?

Now’s the time. Start fresh. Create your life.

Have a beautiful weekend – you deserve it!

mastermind

Next year I’m offering a Single Mom Mastermind.

It’s going to be amazing.

Not because of what I’ll do. Or what my clients will get.

It will be amazing because of who those women will be on the other side of it.

They will feel confident as a mom.

They will feel capable of handling their life.

They will feel hopeful about their future.

They will believe in themselves more than they ever thought possible.

Now that is something worth working toward – don’t you think?

Click here to get details.

And for today – think about who you want to be in 2019. How will you be different? How will you feel different?

What will be the best thing to come out of that 12 months ahead?

Think about it today. It’s never too early to start imagining your future.

Have an amazing day – one thought at a time.

Divorced at 21

This week on the podcast I interviewed a brilliant and amazing woman who was divorced at age 21.

(Click here to check it out)

She and I met at a hotel gym believe it or not (see the unfiltered picture of us below).

We connected over common experiences on the treadmill that day.

We talked about fears, bravery, judgment from others, and even the idea of coming to terms with possibly being single forever. She’s now remarried and a mother of 6. It was so fun to connect and learn about her journey.

My favorite part was talking with her about how big divorce seems when you’re in the middle of it, but as life and times goes on…it’s just one small part of a larger life.

I know you can probably relate.

I think you’ll love her perspective – make the time to listen this weekend.

In the meantime, today, think about what you’ve learned so far in your experience post-divorce. What’s been the biggest lesson learned? What advice would you give someone going through it now?

Celebrate how far you’ve come.
Enjoy the lessons learned.
Give yourself a little love today.

Have a beautiful weekend – you deserve it!

Decide now

A lot of my clients get so worried about the holidays.

“It’s so busy.”
“There’s so much to do.”
“I get so overwhelmed.”

They worry that life will feel so out of control over those weeks.

But I say, decide now.

Decide now how you’ll experience December.

Think about how you really want to spend your time and do it.

Drop everyone else’s expectations and decide what’s most important to you.

Focus on relationships. Focus on your favorite moments.

Think about creating memories.

Take full responsibility for your experience and make it exactly what you want it to be.

Have an amazing day – one thought at a time!
