At the age of 18, after nine months of watching my body change drastically I became a mother for the first time. Not only was it scary but I was expected to know exactly what to do to raise a happy, healthy child.
Of course I had support but inside I still felt judged, belittled, lonely and scared as hell that I was going to screw up.
So I got really honest with myself, dug deep, made myself accountable and grew up REALLY quickly. I reached out and found mentors who inspired me. I found my bliss, I found my joy and now I have the opportunity to share that with you.
So today I wanted to show you that every parent has doubts and fears, even those who are yoga teachers and business owners.
Anita and I get VERY personal in our talk together, so check it out and let me know what you think.
In a nutshell, we chatted about:
1) Creating your life by design, NOT by default: Intentionally making conscious decisions to create the lifestyle YOU want for your family, not what other people want for you.
2) Taking more time for yourself: Doing something you love EVERYDAY. Try to eliminate your guilt and know that when you do something for yourself, you are doing something for your children TOO.
3) Accept that you are doing the best you can, in THIS moment: You already are a SUPERmom (or dad), just by doing the best you can.
4) Be yourself: Its ok to be “different”. Not sure if you have noticed, but I have never met two people that were the same. Shine in your parenting style and TRUST yourself.
