Life as a Mom
Chaos and mayhem. Two words that many moms like you identify with. We see memes and gifs making our daily struggles to dress, feed, and raise our kids into something to laugh about.
And, while it’s good to see the humor in things we experience, it also makes our struggles seem smaller than they are. Like our struggle to not just hide under the covers instead of facing another day of cleaning up spills and changing diapers.
But you know what? It’s okay to feel that way! All moms struggle trying to balance it all, find energy to push through hard days, and feel adequate. Even those moms you see at the school drop off or at church service that seem they have it all together.
They’ve struggled, too. Maybe it’s a child’s learning disability or maybe finances are squeezing tight. Whatever it is, we all face trouble in life.
Turning Negatives into Positives
I’ve been a stay at home/ home schooling/ work at home mom since my daughter’s birth in 1995. I struggled with feeling inadequate. Questioned many of my choices. I worried I would fail as a home school mom. My husband and I have struggled with serious money issues, job loss, marital problems, health problems.
In hind sight, I learned how to take those experiences to help others like you find ways to make it through those daily, and even big life, struggles. I found myself in a place in which I had finally completed a general studies degree (business/biblical studies).
Yet, I had not idea how I could use it as a career or fulfill my desire to help others. With some soul searching and prayer I realized becoming a life coach fit well.
It’s taken me a few years to finally see how it was meant to come together. I had some growing to do (and still do!). To combine my life coach training with my blog experience.
I realized that instead of feeling regret for all the disappointments and bad choices, I could use those experiences to help other moms to recognize what keeps them from feeling happy with their lives and recognize there are things they can do/use to help calm the chaos.
What’s MIAW is all About
This idea, dream, vision I’d had finally came into clear view when I had the opportunity to take over Making It All Work. And that’s where we meet today.
It’s my prayer and goal God will use me to help encourage you to seek out ways you can conquer those dragons – the stuff that makes you miserable. It’s when you find inner peace and balance you also find heartfelt, lasting happiness, no matter what life throws at you now and then.
