Embracing Motherhood:
To Live Life Consciously

Dear Friends,

I hope this newsletter finds you having enjoyed a happy, healthy Summer, and on your way to a rewarding Fall. There really is no excuse for my long absence from writing, but let this be a humble testament to the fact that one simply cannot do it ALL. A big “thank you” to those of you who have hung in there with me.

Last May, I found myself feeling an intense inner drive to be more deeply involved in my children’s everyday lives. It started innocently enough with skipping a month of writing my newsletter, and before I knew it the summer was over and I hadn’t even officially let you know I was going to take a hiatus from writing. Please know that out of sight did not mean out of mind or heart.

In fact, the time away from writing helped me to really clear my head, evaluate my offerings, and develop a fresh list of support tools and techniques for you. In the article below I share with you some of what I learned from this part of my journey through motherhood. You will also find a fresh version of my Vision Tree in the “Into Action” section. And I am pleased to launch a fun new offering called a “Balance Party” to help you and your closest girlfriends discover and celebrate vibrancy in motherhood.

Whatever your stage of motherhood, I hope you feel inspired and supported each month to live more fully and joyfully. My goal is to bring you simple and honest articles that address the challenges we face. These articles offer practical ideas that you can use right now to usher in more time and energy, while helping you move beyond a balanced lifestyle to a vibrant one.

Please let me know how I can help you make the most of your adventure. I welcome your feedback.

Life Coach and mother of a first and second grader

A Matter of Perspective

To Live Life Consciously

This journey of motherhood is never static with change as its constant theme. As soon as we get comfortable and think we have the right formula for balancing it all, everything shifts. While I love it, the peaks and valleys can be exhausting as well as humbling.

Last May, after two years of intense focus on building and sustaining my business (which I love) AND crafting a healthy balance at home, I felt compelled to indulge a deep desire to spend more time with my kids. But in order to do so, something had to give and it turned out to be writing my newsletter.

It was innocent enough when I skipped the first month. My thoughts went something like this... ”My readers are busy moms, too—they will understand.” Well, one month turned into two, then three. I kept hearing that niggling voice in the back of my mind saying, ”What about the newsletter? When are you going to get to it?”

And then came the light bulb moment when I returned to my fundamental beliefs: we cannot do it all and we must consciously choose priorities and set intentions. This is where I tripped up. I coach clients every day to live consciously in order to attain balance and fulfillment, but I wasn’t taking my own advice! By not officially declaring my intention to take time off from writing when my priorities shifted, I fell prey to having my energy sapped by incessant twinges of guilt.

Fortunately, outweighing my diminished energy was the benefit of a deeper, slower presence with my family. I have embraced motherhood on an entirely new level. My relationship with my daughter is better, and I discovered she simply needed more of my attention. With the valuable lessons, I feel stronger and more equipped as a mother, partner, daughter, and coach.

Are you consciously setting the priorities and intentions in your life? Check-in with yourself. What main concern do you most desire to honor right now? What can you let go of in order to focus on and manifest that priority?
