ANGRY. STRESSED OUT. CONTROL FREAK.
Nothing intensified those emotions in me more than motherhood.
Upon becoming a mom, I loved deeper than I ever knew possible. I was also more unsure of myself than ever before and angrier than I ever imagined.
The mom life I was living was not the mom life I had envisioned.
I was physically fatigued trying to keep up with my kids, keep on top of my to-do list, and keep up the façade that I had it all together.
I yelled at the people I loved most. Belittled them. I tried to control their every move, their behaviors. I didn’t know how to control the anger and anxiety welling up internally, so I tried to control everything around me to make me happy. But it was quite the opposite, and my unhappiness was toxic.
Something had to change. This was not the mom I wanted to be. Heck, it wasn’t even the person I wanted to be.
What was going on? Why was I like this?
The answer was simple. I was completely overwhelmed! I was trying to do everything and be everything to everyone. But I couldn’t.
I wanted to start loving life again, rather than merely surviving the days.
I wanted to show up better for my kids and be the mom they truly deserve.
I wanted to live life focusing on what really matters, not my to-do list.
So I started making small changes in our home and to our routines. I started creating rhythms and developing daily habits to make my life easier. And something extraordinary happened…
I STARTED LIVING MORE BY DOING LESS!
By making daily tasks easier, I created time to do the things I wanted to do and live a life aligned with my priorities.
What I didn’t realize in this process is how much happier simplifying our lives would make both me and my family!
I no longer suffer with the anxiety and emotional angst of not being in control because I get to choose where my time and energy is spent.
I spend quality time with my boys every day! We play, read together, going on family adventures, or just hang out laughing at YouTube videos together!
I have more hours in my day to work my business. No more burning the candle at both ends to get everything done.
I cheer my butt off at all my boys’ sporting events, and guiltlessly clear our calendar for long family vacations and weekend adventures without worrying about what isn’t getting done at home.
And because of the simple habits we follow in our home, my house runs itself. No more stressing over a to-do list and laundry.
I get to choose what deserves my time.
I get to focus on what really matters in my life.
I get to be present with my family.
