You want to show up in your life as the person you know you can be, with the career you know is possible, and the family life you imagined, and the confidence to enjoy it.
You want to work out more often, and spend guilt-free time with your girlfriends, and maybe even watch that show everyone is talking about.
And there's also that dream you put on the shelf a LONG time ago...the one that still makes your heart beat faster every time you think about it. If you could have time for THAT you just know it would feel amazing.
Your time is getting frittered away into laundry, carpools, and email...and you can't remember the last time you made time for something YOU really wanted to do.
There's just not enough of you to go around, especially because everyone else's needs keep getting bumped ahead of yours.
You are carrying A LOT...and you're getting crushed...under the weight of expectations.
Your own. Your family's. Your team's. Society's.
You're frustrated, exhausted, and anxious. You feel judged by, well, everyone.
You're starting to resent your spouse who doesn't do NEARLY as much as you and seems to be able to let things slide that you just can't.
But you have massive FOMO when you consider letting anyone lend a hand. You wonder...if you don't go to the next soccer game or band competition, will you regret it? You have guilt when you even THINK about not putting your kids first, and you're constantly judging yourself for not looking like you're giving 150%.
You're overloaded, and fighting a nagging sense of failure that you just can't seem to put your finger on.
I was raised to believe I could be anything I wanted to be in a time when ""having it all"" was the holy grail. And I bought it - hook line and sinker. I took on the notion of ""ALL"" with gusto. But since perfectionism runs deep in my veins, it was ever quite enough.
In school I joined every club and played on every team while acing every class. I carried that drive with me into adulthood...taking on every project, doing every blessed thing at home myself. I wouldn't dream of letting anyone help (much less ask them to). I was Atlas carrying the world on my shoulders.
But carrying it was making me tired, and cranky, and resentful. I had a long to do list, a short temper and dark circles under my eyes.I felt like a fraud - while I had the three kids I always wanted, I was always hurrying them through life, never able to settle in to a moment to be fully present.I was running from one ""to do"" to the next, with no space in between.
One day I looked in the mirror and hardly recognized the woman looking back at me. And that's when I knew something had to change.
I had to figure out how to stop living every minute like some kind of productivity machine and start living like a human being. This whole Executive Supermom thing was overrated. I wanted to live a little.
Everyone and their mother was trying to tell me that I needed to do less. But I was wrestling with that message because it didn't feel quite right.
So I tried a different approach, and what I learned is that doing LESS isn't the answer for people like us. Instead it’s about doing MORE...of exactly what we want.
The path I found from overload and exhaustion to freedom and fulfillment had three steps:
Here's what you'll notice when you take this path...
You wake up feeling rested and have enough stamina to get through the day without that afternoon Starbucks run.
Your nervous system gets the memo to move out of fight or flight so you can breathe again - bonus: you stop snapping at the kids and bursting into tears at a moment's notice.
You know what you want and you're ready to go get it with the full force of your personal power.
Your calendar is full of things you GET to do instead of things you HAVE to do because you've learned to say no and leaned into delegation.
You seem lighter, happier, and have a renewed sense of ease.
Once the swirl of thoughts in your head settles like a snowglobe that's no longer being shaken, you become crystal clear on where to invest your time, energy and focus for maximum wellbeing.
Because you have time and space to just BE ...and that space fills with glimmers of possibility that light you up.
You learn to live in the moment so you fall asleep at night secure that you are doing enough, and more importantly that you ARE enough.
It's because they work.
