I’ve witnessed hundreds of women holding themselves back every single day from how they truly want to feel. For almost a decade, in my coaching practice alone, big-hearted, stressed out women, would tell me over and over again how stuck they felt.
They’d tell me how their diaries were constantly booked up with pre commitments they no longer felt committed to, yet would show up for anyhow. All they really wanted to do is ‘break free’ of this feeling of stuckness. This feeling of always being on the brink of a version of burn out or numbness. Their vibrancy had dissipated, their flames a flicker instead of the raging fire that is their truth.
And then, they entered motherhood. For the very first time. And they felt in the thick of it even more than before.
Is this you? Perhaps you already feel like you are failing in some way. You know something needs to change but it just doesn’t feel like creating any me time in life right now is even possible.
And in amongst all of this inner turmoil and frustration is also a LOT of love. You feel excited about your baby’s growth and development. You love watching them play, laugh, explore. All you really want to do is find the capacity to be fully present and sink into those feelings of joy but you notice you’re holding back, distracting yourself with busyness, numbing out with constant To-Dos, or over-giving to others.
It doesn’t have to feel like this.
You deserve to feel INCREDIBLE in this season of your life.
