Sunday Funday began with coaching some lovely ladies yesterday.
For privacy reasons I won’t be sharing the recording but here’s one of the topics we dove deeper into…… Hiding behind gratitude
Sneaky thoughts that sound good but aren’t:
𝐼 𝑠ℎ𝑜𝑢𝑙𝑑 𝑏𝑒 𝑔𝑟𝑎𝑡𝑒𝑓𝑢𝑙 𝑏𝑒𝑐𝑎𝑢𝑠𝑒 𝑖𝑡’𝑠 𝑛𝑜𝑡 𝑔𝑜𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑡𝑜 𝑙𝑎𝑠𝑡 𝑓𝑜𝑟𝑒𝑣𝑒𝑟.
𝑀𝑦 𝑝𝑟𝑖𝑜𝑟𝑖𝑡𝑖𝑒𝑠 ℎ𝑎𝑣𝑒 𝑐ℎ𝑎𝑛𝑔𝑒𝑑 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑛𝑜𝑤 𝐼 𝑎𝑚 𝑓𝑙𝑢𝑖𝑑 𝑤ℎ𝑒𝑛 𝑖𝑡 𝑐𝑜𝑚𝑒𝑠 𝑡𝑜 𝑚𝑦 𝑤𝑜𝑟𝑘 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑝𝑎𝑟𝑒𝑛𝑡𝑖𝑛𝑔.
This thought can be helpful or it can create scarcity. Check in with your body for the answer.
If you feel overwhelmed or anxious then you’re creating scarcity for you. This shows up for many women in their parenting journey. Telling yourself “𝑡ℎ𝑒𝑦’𝑟𝑒 𝑜𝑛𝑙𝑦 𝑙𝑖𝑡𝑡𝑙𝑒 𝑜𝑛𝑐𝑒” can help you justify not taking care of your own needs. But that is not sustainable nor nourishing.
The way we show up for ourselves also reflects in the way we show up for others.
We think it’s the opposite, I can take care of everyone as long as I sacrifice myself. This method sets you up to FAIL. Over time resentment and exhaustion is built.
At the end you are left with no gratitude and appreciation for the life that you worked so hard to build.
𝐼 𝑎𝑚 𝑓𝑙𝑢𝑖𝑑 𝑖𝑛 𝑚𝑦 𝑤𝑜𝑟𝑘, 𝑝𝑎𝑟𝑒𝑛𝑡𝑖𝑛𝑔, 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑖𝑛 𝑚𝑦 𝑜𝑤𝑛 𝑠𝑒𝑙𝑓 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑒.
Being fluid at work and with our loved ones comes natural for many of us. But, being fluid in committing to self care is a struggle.
It will feel uncomfortable AND you can still prioritize it.
You don’t need to feel comfortable to block your schedule to workout, go for a walk, catch up with a friend, or read a book.
Allow yourself to feel uncomfortable because it will pass.
This takes away the power it holds over you.
At the end, you are nourished and then you nourish others without feeling scarcity.
This is the coaching I gave one of my alum clients.
I know many of you can relate. You could say it’s second nature to just your own culture that makes this coaching resonate.
It’s time to crack down on the sneaky thoughts NOW. The longer you believe them, the longer it takes to detach from them. But it’s not impossible. I promise!
What a gift these ladies gave themselves at yesterday’s session. I am currently working with some of them privately already.
Time to learn the tools I am so ready to teach you.

If you can’t find a time that works for you, message me. We’ll figure it out, this is my full time gig- No other schedules to work around.
Can’t wait to finally meet you!
