“I’m stopping. I can’t do this anymore. You can’t make me do it.”

These were the words I spoke out loud last week while running with a group of “seasoned runners”. I’m training for my first 5k run.

My mind is telling me, “Why are you making a big deal over 5kms?”

My heart is saying something else…

I said these words out loud because I was pissed; I wanted to stop running.

I couldn’t do it anymore – it just wasn’t possible (I thought).

And as soon as the words came out of myself the women in the front heard me, turned around, and ran directly behind me so I couldn’t give up.

“I’m not going to let you stop. I know you don’t want to. You will feel awful about yourself if you give up now,” she said.

I came back with, “No, I’m pretty sure I will feel awesome. I will get a good night’s sleep. Won’t beat myself up at all (with a humorous tone to my voice).”

I was challenged.

I was pissed.

And I was SO grateful that these women didn’t give up on me – but  I truly didn’t want them to. I need them to help me push through the wall and cross the finish line.

So, I did it! I ran for 40 minutes straight. My body was tired, so I let her rest.

You see, I really want to love running. Although I don’t yet “believe” I will ever qualify for a Boston Marathon – I’m not going to let my “stinkin thinkin” get in the way.

I have a plan.

I have a community.

And everyday I take one (just one) simple action towards my bigger vision.

Yesterday, it was running 5 kms.

Today, it’s resting my body.

Your dreams are possible.

The relationship you desire with your children is possible.

The freedom and space to “get it all done” is possible.

The confidence to know how to intuitively parent your children is possible.

The only difference between what you want – and where you are now is simple daily action steps.

And I want to help you get there – which is why I’ve create a FREE 21 Day Challenge called Mom Is In Control. Check it out here.

As someone who loves to take action and manifest quickly, I’ve designed this challenge to do exactly that.

After registering by CLICKING HERE you will receive a daily email with a 2 minute video. The actions are typically simple, and massively transformational (if you do them).

I know you’re a seeker and a dreamer or you wouldn’t read my newsletter.

Parenting, work, and relationships do not need to feel like a constant struggle. Let’s make SH!+ happen, and get clear on how you really want to feel.

Start here.  Join the challenge.

I will see you on the inside.

How to Create 28 Hours In Your Day

by Heather Chauvin

It’s 6am as I write this. My boys are sleeping. All I can hear is the noise of our Bernese Moutain Dog getting into something she shouldn’t be. For a while now I’ve made a morning routine of spending some time with myself before the day begins. It wasn’t easy starting this routine because before I would never have […]

Is your child your soulmate?

by Heather Chauvin

While procrastinating and finding myself roaming FB, I came across a Super Soul Sunday Video that hit home. Oprah was interviewing Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love. The video was titled “Why marrying your Soul Mate isn’t what you really want.” What? Interesting I thought. Since our culture thrives on becoming the ‘perfect’ everything. […]
