Waking up, soaked in the opportunity to sleep in, lounge, and eat in abundance but a little different than a family Sunday morning.
This Sunday, a family event in a heart filling kinda way. 6 girls, in no way connected, but bonded together because we all wanted more.
More happiness in our lives,
As mamas, before we do everything for everyone, we have expectations for us.
We know that filling our cup, isn’t just a necessity, it’s an opportunity.
What if we stopped worrying about the how and why we should take care of us ?
FOCUS on when to start.
5, ,4, 3, 2, 1.
Coaching is a way, to start showing up for you and in turn give more to your life.
Maybe you have been wanting to do more, be more, see more, share more, but you didn’t know if #momduties#busylife#fullschedules would give you time or energy or reason.
So let that be your reason.
You are a mama.
You are capable of so much MORE.
I’m just a message and a cup of coffee away, and I want you to have more for you.✌🏻 Coach, mom, wife, worker, what makes each of the roles so important? It’s what you put in to them, it’s what you have in you to give.💕
You don’t need to know the entire way.
You only need to see 10 ft infront of you and move... This past weekend I was in Hamilton for a business meeting. I had no idea how to get there besides jumping on the 401, what construction would be ahead, if there would be accidents, bad weather... no clue.
What I did know is I could see in front of me and I would tackle each problem as it came up to me. I couldn’t plan for any possible detours and slow downs. I just had to go.... Your life is exactly that. Maybe you don’t have it all planned out, if you do, great. But there will always be construction, detours, and accidents along the way. It’s okay. You might need a little help from a gps along the way. It’s OKAY. Keep course and keep going. You’ll make it eventually
This has been a super busy week, and I feel like I haven’t even been home, let alone had enough time to put up some interesting posts! Thought we had some relax time with a beautiful dinner out on Friday night, but 5 minutes before we were to leave our puppy ate an entire bottle of children’s ibuprofen and we spent the night at the emergency vet instead. 🙄 what are your best ideas for even 5 minutes of found self care?? #selfcare#busymom#busymomlife#busylife#needabreak#needabreakfromlife#sos#dayoffplease#selfcareideas
Who else can relate?
At the moment I am in a huge rut. I feel over whelmed, unhappy, meh... just... not myself.
I can't seem to win with anything. Nothing just... goes right. I mean yeah sure, life is busy with 3 kids and 1 on the way.
I'm tired. I get uncomfortable and sore with my varicose veins.
I try to be the fun and energetic mother I want to be to my kids but... I feel like I snap easily at the kids at the moment. I hate it!
On top of that I feel like i don't have time for my husband - we dontdont o on many dates -our dates were usually the gym but at the moment I can't lift heavy so we don't train together.. so our time seems very limited especially when I want to sleep before 8pm.
I don't have alot of time to train - yes i can and do make time but at the same time i have to listen to my body and sometimes have a nap instead of training... or sleep in instead of doing a morning workout.
I have myclients sessions and nutrition plans (and I won't stop this as I love helping others reach their goals!!) kids sport/training. Toilet training. Walking the dog. House cleaning. Food prepping. Washing. One income makes life hard too sometimes.....
Why does the list go on and on...
And I know it's not going to get easier.
I also know I'm not the only one who has a busy life - I take my hat off to all the mum's and dad's out there!!! I know I'm just in a bit of a rut at the moment and life will be better soon - so i am just taking day by day and trying to take the small wins each day!
Like today... i mowed the lawn and did the washing.
Keep doing what you're doing! Keep your chin up and keep progressing. We are all here for eachother and all going through the same things each day. Xx
“I've never been lonely. I've been in a room -- I've felt suicidal. I've been depressed. I've felt awful -- awful beyond all -- but I never felt that one other person could enter that room and cure what was bothering me...or that any number of people could enter that room. In other words, loneliness is something I've never been bothered with because I've always had this terrible itch for solitude. It's being at a party, or at a stadium full of people cheering for something, that I might feel loneliness. I'll quote Ibsen, "The strongest men are the most alone." I've never thought, "Well, some beautiful blonde will come in here and give me a fuck-job, rub my balls, and I'll feel good." No, that won't help. You know the typical crowd, "Wow, it's Friday night, what are you going to do? Just sit there?" Well, yeah. Because there's nothing out there. It's stupidity. Stupid people mingling with stupid people. Let them stupidify themselves. I've never been bothered with the need to rush out into the night. I hid in bars, because I didn't want to hide in factories. That's all. Sorry for all the millions, but I've never been lonely. I like myself. I'm the best form of entertainment I have. Let's drink more wine!” ― Charles Bukowski
#repost from @janessa_anne - Today was my last day of placement. Other then two more classes to attend, this day marks the completion to my requirements for my Bachelor of Social Work Degree. If I had known back in year 11 that I would have encountered small but great things that lead me to my future career I would of jumped on the opportunity without hesitation (e.g careers interview, English class book, ACU seminar coming to my small/rural school, being given a brochure that said ‘First ever Bachelor of Social Work Four-year Degree starting 2015’). I now recognise the impact the smallest of things can do to anything, to literally anyone. I now realise that the universe was sending me signs to pursue a path of creating positive and significant change in people’s lives and hopefully the world. The best part about when people asked me if I liked my degree I said I loved it! When comparing that to others I know who don’t have a bright spark in their eye when talking about their degree and future work opportunities it seriously saddens me. This is just a small reminder to pursue the things you admire, don’t let fear hold you back from being your best self. I promise you, you won’t regret! Now to begin setting out new goals, completing them and creating more. Peace out ✌🏼 🎓🍾🥂📚#acu#socialwork#bachelorofsocialwork#socialworkersofficial
Update since I’ve been crazy busy lately! This is my faveeee time of year even though it’s barely gotten cold here yet I’m still pumped😍 and the countdown until I move starts! I have about a month left in AZ until I move back to Nebraska and I can’t wait 🎉 I haven’t been working out as much as I’d like but between my job being on my feet A TON, getting stuff everything packed to move, and doing fun things with friends before I leave AZ for good I’m okay with that. I’m actually moving into my mamas house when I get into Nebraska until I’m settled in and she has a gym in her basement so I’m about to be all over that! my pregnancy is also going by crazy fast too I’m already halfway there and honestly other then my clothes not fitting anymore, it’s been really easy/chill🤰🏼💝#happymama#healthylifestyle#mom#momlife#happygirl#fall#fallishere#october#update#fun#instagood#fitgirl#fitmom#busylife#fitness#pregnant
It is truly the best feeling ever when you can put a smile on your clients face. It amazing how much confidence a little makeup can have on a person. These session from @kleinstudiosphotography are so empowering and help build confidence. Everyone should experience a Boudoir session, you are totally worth it.
I am deeply grateful for these women they place their trust in me for doing their makeup and hair.
Life!! It’s been so busy and I have been a little MIA on social media, trying to find my groove again and be more present in my day today. .
I have laundry to fold and rooms to clean up but I know these snuggles not last forever. .
Chores can wait for now.
Tomorrow will be a black label kind of day and get the * done 😂🤣
