MOM GUILT. Drop a 🏼♀️ if you’ve experienced it! .
It’s a REAL thing. I’m finding that the majority (if not all) Moms, whether you work or not, experience this at some point and that Mom on the left was CRIPPLED with it. She questioned & overthought everything she did. She tried to keep up with what the other Moms were doing, listened to the opinions others and tried to please EVERYONE!
The Mom in between those two pictures started TRANSFORMING on the inside when she became a Coach — Gaining a COMMUNITY of SUPPORT, paying it forward and rediscovering my purpose helped rebuild my confidence and stop caring what others thought — BUT, wanting MORE, being a go-getter left me feeling guilty sometimes, too. I’ve caught myself holding back a little from my full potential and pushing my team to reach theirs because of this! 🤦🏼♀️ .
So ya know what — the Mom on the right is finally LETTING. IT. GO! Mom Guilt is UNFAIR to us and to our kids. It doesn’t make us better parents to feel guilty for living our purpose, going to work to pay the bills, that you had your kid repeat pre-school or that you bottle fed your baby. If we’re not proud, confident & at peace with the decisions we make, it’s making us worse parents and inhibiting us from living out our purpose. What good is it doing us if we’re showing our kids to feel guilty instead of enthusiastic and energetic?!?! 🤷🏼♀️
I’m PROUD of my role as a working parent. Somer is growing up watching me be a leader, growing a business from home that I’m PASSIONATE about. A business that makes a difference in other people’s lives, that has a ripple effect when it comes to health and happiness. A business that helps her Mom stay as healthy as she possibly can so that she can be around “annoying” her as long as she possibly can!
Somer’s learning that with HARD WORK and when done in a deliberate way, it is SO possible to chase your dreams and achieve them while still having your family be the first and foremost priority!
YOU ARE ALLOWED to want something MORE for your life. If you have a little spark in your heart — you know where to find me. #TransformationTuesday - 19 hours ago
