Choice is so empowering. Choice changes trajectories. Choice can also be overwhelming.
As mothers, we are faced with so many overwhelming choices that carry weight with them. Our children’s foundations are rooted in how we conduct ourselves and what choices we make…not just for them, but maybe even more so for ourselves.
Have you experienced greater participation and cooperation when your kids have choice? When they’re smaller, the choices can be as simple as “Do you want to leave the park in 5 minutes or 6?” and the experience of empowered control makes a deposit of personal power, increasing self – confidence.
Too many moms I work with, at the beginning, are experiencing the overwhelm of such a full life and feel trapped. Confidence decreases, seeking confirmation from social media and “surface” only relationships leave an empty feeling that results in a motherhood experience that isn’t satisfying or gratifying. That is not okay.
Moms need to feel confident and competent to raise healthy, confident kids. Our emotions are contagious, and our kids are more influenced by our emotional states that anyone else. Today is a great day to CHOOSE to be independent from the messages of social media about the way you “should” behave, what you “should” think and “should” experience in this often challenging, but beautiful journey called Motherhood. I believe that you have an intuitive voice that can guide you toward your happiest and healthiest version of you. I hope today, and tomorrow, you choose to make choices congruent to what matters most in your heart.
If the picture of you as a healthy and happy mom isn’t very clear, please remember, you’re not alone and support is available.
