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!

3 things

This week I’m teaching you 3 keys to building more confidence as a single mom on the podcast – CLICK HERE to subscribe and listen.

And the most important thing I want you to know today – is that NOW is the perfect time for you to build more confidence than ever before.

A lot of people think that divorce will ruin your confidence.

Some people wonder how you can build confidence when you’re at your lowest point.

The lowest point is the best starting point in my opinion.

Confidence isn’t something that’s given to you. It’s something you create.

You create it by proving to yourself that you can do anything. You create it by deciding that you are an amazing person, even when someone else tells you you’re not.

You create it by committing to believing in yourself, no matter what.

Now is the time. Are you ready? Click to listen now.

Have a beautiful weekend – you deserve it <3

easier than ever

Next week my kids will be with their dad for Thanksgiving and it feels so easy.

The first time they were away, it didn’t feel so easy.

And the first Christmas away, seemed like the worst.

But my brain has re-framed the way we experience life, and it’s easier than ever.

I’m traveling for the holiday and looking forward to having a great time with so many people I love.

My kids will have fun and send me some great pictures.

I won’t have to cook, mash potatoes, or do dishes.

It’s so much more fun to embrace what is and love everything life has to offer.

I hope you can do the same.

Sending you so much love as you gear up for the holiday week.

Have a beautiful weekend – you deserve it!

feelings hurt

Last week I hurt my own feelings.

I used to think that other people could hurt my feelings. I thought my ex-husband could make me feel “bad.” I thought my kids could make me feel unappreciated. I gave them all of my power.

Last week my son was frustrated with his sister. He said that I’m not doing a good job parenting her. He said she needs more limits and that I never do anything about it.

And I really hurt my feelings when he said that.

I had a lot of thoughts that caused me to feel bad.

“You need to do better.” “You’re not doing enough.” “You’re failing as a mom.”

Those are the thoughts that I had, and they really hurt.

I decided to remind myself of the big wins that I have every day. And I decided to look at what small changes I want to make to do better. Because the truth is that nothing he said would have mattered, if I didn’t believe it.

If you’re feelings get hurt, ask yourself what you are thinking that’s causing you to feel hurt. Notice that your thoughts are the ones that matter. And you get to decide how you think, always.

Have a beautiful weekend – you deserve it!
