New beginnings

It’s your *Friday Love Note* and New beginnings…

It’s Easter weekend and it might be full of excitement and fun for you.

Or you might be discouraged about your life.
It might not be your turn with the kids.
You might be dreading interaction with your ex.

A lot of things may be coming up for you – and that’s totally normal.
But just remember, that Easter is all about new beginnings.
Easter means that everything that’s gone wrong, will be made right.
Every sadness and every wound, will be healed.
It means that more is possible than we can ever imagine.

What if that’s true?
What if life is full of hope and happiness?
What if the best is yet to come?
I believe it’s true.
Have an amazing weekend – you deserve it <3

2 more lives

It’s *Think it Thursday* and 2 more lives…

This week 2 more women signed up to start coaching with me.
Do you know what this means?

It means they have made a decision that their life and happiness matters.

They are tired of feeling overwhelmed and frustrated.
They are tired of feeling like they aren’t doing enough.
They are fed up with being ineffective, stuck in a rut, and downright unhappy.

And so, they decided to bet on themselves.

It wasn’t easy for either of them.
It was hard for them to think about spending money on themselves and scary to fear that it wouldn’t really make a difference.
Can you relate?

They both said, “it’s not you, it’s me.”  “I’m just afraid I can’t make these changes.”
But both of them, decided to bet on themselves.

They chose to believe they could do it and that more was possible.
And of course, they can do it.
It’s not just possible, it’s happening.

How can you bet on yourself today? Maybe you’re ready for a call with me, and maybe you’re not.
Either way, take a minute to think about what needs to change and how you can make it happen.

How will you take a step toward eliminating overwhelm?
How will you feel more satisfied in your life and relationships?
How will you have more confidence in who you are as an amazing and vibrant woman?

Think about it.
Bet on yourself.
Make it happen. 

Have a great day, one thought at a time!

And YES – I do have a spot for you too.  Click here if you’re ready to have a conversation about it.

incomplete

*Think it Thursday* and incomplete –

One of the biggest challenges of motherhood is being okay with incomplete.

It’s hard to measure success in the daily tasks of raising kids.

What’s clean one minute, is a disaster the next.

There are new problems every day.

You don’t feel like you’re checking many boxes.

I get it. And I help my clients with this all the time.

If you feel like you’re not getting anywhere, you’re probably frustrated and unfulfilled.

You wonder if what you’re doing is worthwhile.

And overtime, you may even wonder if you’re worthwhile.

It’s a trap I see women fall into all the time.

If you can relate, stop for a minute and think.

What if your worth and contribution is great, even without checking any boxes?
What if you are complete, even if the tasks around you aren’t?
What would be different if you felt confident that who you are matters?

And that you make a difference?

Think about it.

Have a great day, one thought at a time!

I usually have trash in my car…

Hey Mamas! It’s *Think it Thursday* and I usually have trash in my car…

Last week a new client came to me wondering, “how is everyone else doing it?”
(referring to motherhood and life.)
Do you ever wonder that too?

Everyone else seems to be holding it together.

A clean house.
A balanced meal on the table at night.
Homework help.
Staying in shape.
Happy kids.
Booming career.
How is everyone else doing this?

The truth is that everyone is doing great at some things, okay at others, and some things – they aren’t doing at all. And maybe that’s okay.

One of the things my friend Sherry loves about me is that every time she gets in my car I say, “don’t let any trash fall out.”
And we laugh.

Because it’s true – there’s trash in my car.

My kid’s granola bar wrappers, school papers, empty water bottles… they are everywhere most of the time. I’m not good at asking them to clear stuff out. Sometimes I’m rushing or scatter-brained. And sometimes I just don’t spend the energy worrying about it.

I used to feel embarrassed, but I don’t any more. I’m doing my best and that has to be enough.

I’m doing great at some things.
Getting by when it comes to others.
And some things, are just not happening in my life.

I can still choose to have my own back.
And so can you.

Notice what’s going great.
Do your best to improve.
Let some things go.

Love yourself no matter what.

Have a great day, one thought at a time!

the secret to more energy

It’s *Think it Thursday* and I’m sharing with you the secret to more energy.

I’m teaching you something today that is my lifeline.

Some of you know I have chronic fatigue and it’s a constant challenge.

But this concept I’m telling you about, is a game changer.

Because we all get exhausted and worn out, especially as a mom.

My secret – energy management.

We hear a lot about time management, but the truth is that if you had more energy, you would make much better use of your time, right?

You can’t create more hours in the day, but you can create more energy.

There are certain things you do that energize you – maybe it’s alone time, maybe it’s social time.  Maybe it’s laughing or creating.  Take a minute to notice what energizes you.

There are other things that require more mental and emotional energy.  Leading kids in chores, balancing the budget, or sifting through your schedule for the week… stack these up and it could leave you spent, exhausted, with nothing left to give.

The key is to plan and manage your activities based on how they impact your energy.  The right combination is all the difference.

Think about this.  Time is finite.  There are 24 hour every day, period.

Energy is fluid.  You can manage your energy by building in plenty of activities that increase your energy, amongst those that drain it.

So today, here is your assignment:

List energizing and energy-depleting activities.  Plan them in to support you having sustained energy.  Revisit this idea often and just notice how you have the ability to manage your energy.

Magic.

Have a great day – one thought at a time!
