Do you love and enjoy being Mom?

…or do you feel exhausted, frustrated and angry a lot of the time?

Do you see yourself modeling and teaching balanced, conscious and healthy living to your children?

…or do you feel guilty that your overwhelm and stress might be messing them up?

Do you feel calm and confident in yourself as a Mom?

…or do you doubt your choices and reactions to motherhood’s every-day challenges?

I get it.

You love your children more than anything in the world.

You are committed to being the best mother you can be.

But being a mother has turned out to be the most difficult job you’ve ever had.

You were prepared for everything else, but you weren’t prepared for this.

The exhaustion, the emotions, the chaos, the demands, the isolation.

You feel wound-up, rushed, frenzied alot of the time.

You yell. You rage. You cry.

Or you let it all ferment inside.

Either way, you don’t recognize yourself.

 

The guilt.

It eats away at you.

And the resentment.

It just keeps on growing.

This is not what you signed up for.

Your compassionate and loving side struggles to emerge while impatience, frustration and anger dominate; you feel like you’ve failed yourself and your family…again.

I know. I've been there.

{scroll down to read my story}

But everyday you wake up, put your smile on and start all over.

Because you have to.

Because you want to.

What if one day you woke up and it was your compassionate and kind self that responded to spilt milk and stained t-shirts?

What if you could let the laundry go and play tickle monster for those extra five minutes?

What if you suddenly found yourself playing, fully present and lost in your lego building or playdough mess?

What if you stopped long enough to look into your child’s eyes as you buckled him in or helped her with homework, and felt that love, that lost connection?

What if you modeled your values of calm, joy and confidence to your children every single day.

It's possible.

I know it's possible because I am a recovering Type-A, high achiever.

I'm also a recovering control freak hot-head stressed-out Mom.

I'm a Mom who has gone from hamster-wheel-automatic-pilot doing all the time

To being in the moment with my kids most-of-the-time.

 “Looks great, but I don’t have time.”

Now that’s ironic.

Time.

It’s such a precious commodity.

Let's think about it.

Why is time so precious to you right now?

Is it because you will only be “Mom” to little ones right now?

Is it because you only have one chance to get it right and that is now?

Time is fleeting and you are going through this muddle unsupported.

Hmmm…

Mama, if you are loving what we could do together, and saying “I so wish I could, but I just don’t have time for this right now“, then please do yourself a favor and rethink.

The MAMA inJOY Mentorship Program will not only help you turn your time into quality time, it will also help you to create more abundance of time in your life.

Can you imagine finding moments of nothingness and moments of being scattered throughout your day? 

Moments you can fill with joy and connection.

Ah, yes.

Don’t fool yourself into believing that this program will take it away because the opposite is true.

This program will not only give you more time, it will give you better time.

Nice, eh?

 

So now you’re thinking:

Ok, good. This looks even greater, but it’s just too much money right now.”

I know. 

Life with kids is expensive.

And this program is not meant to be another stressor in your life.

It is designed to make you feel good, so good about being a Mom. 

That said, I am committed to making my support accessible to all Moms so if you really really really  want to work one-on-one with me, we can work out payment options that will make this work for you.  

And know that there are other ways of getting support from me:

Hmm...not sure if she’s quite right for me…

That’s so so cool, Mama. I wouldn’t dish out my precious money and time on such a personal journey unless I was sure the fit was right.

So you can learn more about me by reading My Story below and get to know me by reading my blogs, joining my Facebook page, or signing up for free Clear Mind | Present Mama Challenge (next starting in March 2016).

 

From stuck towards acceptance, gratitude and inspired action...

In the time leading up to my coaching sessions with Alex, I had been feeling “stuck” -- in my habits, in my thought patterns, in my emotions. Alex helped me break through that stagnation and shift my perspective to one of acceptance, gratitude and inspired action.

Alex is caring and thoughtful, compassionate and smart.  But the best thing about her is that she is always a mom first.  Being a mother herself, Alex understands what moms need -- support, understanding, someone to acknowledge their hard work and someone to give them tools they can use to grow and evolve as mothers, women, partners and people. 

I’ve had the privilege of working with a few different Life Coaches and Alex is absolutely one of the best.

I am living my dream! If I hadn't met Alex I would still be lost.

Before working with Alex I held my dream close to my heart – a secret desire of what I wanted, but that I was always too shy/lacking in confidence to admit to anyone.

Alex helped me to shift my thoughts, allowing me to see things totally differently. Now I feel free of all that was holding me back.

Coaching with Alex has been a powerful process. The sessions have been emotional, joyful, monumentally uplifting and empowering. I always, without fail, left our sessions feeling ready to tackle everything head on and knowing what I need to do and what I need to focus on to get there.

I am living my dream! If I hadn't met Alex I would still be lost.

Her work is transformational...

Before working with Alex, the biggest challenges I felt as a mother was this feeling of being torn between spending time with my children and in my professional world. I felt drained and depleted and often blamed my children for that feeling -- when it was often my own ambivalence that was causing the feeling.

Alex’s coaching is helping me to manage overwhelm, stress and exhaustion. She has helped me to experience more joy as a mother; to remember how deep my love runs for my children and how important it is for me to be a role model of resilience for them too.

Her work is transformational in that she helps me to dig deeper into depleting and distracting patterns I hold, and to focus on creating new habits, thoughts, and coping skills that help me make better choices from moment to moment and live more in alignment with who I am and what I believe in.

My story.

Pre-children, I traveled the world, learned 4 languages and was nicely climbing up my professional trajectory.

I was a self-made woman on a mission to stay strong, accomplished and succeed.

Then I became a Mom.

And when motherhood came, it chewed me up, swallowed me whole and then spit me out as some new unrecognisable, mad, crazy, woman.

Alex, smiling

In the beginning I didn’t really think much would change, so I kept living at full velocity.

And consequently, high stress became the flavour of the day.

The weight of my responsibility for young lives, my lack of freedom, my ever confused identity, my altered relationship with the man I loved, the isolation from friends and social events that had been such an active part of my life – these drove me to the brink of insanity.

It was the confusion, the exhaustion, the frustration, the resentment, the overwhelm of it all.

And the guilt of not getting it right. Oh the guilt!

Today my experience and my research, as well as the hundreds of mothers I’ve spoken with tells me that these are all feelings shared by mothers around the world.

The myth. The romantic myth that motherhood is blissful.

It did not take very long for that myth to come crashing down on my sanity and self-confidence – both as a stay-at-home Mom and as a working Mom.

When I was a stay-at-home Mom I questioned who I was and I regretted my financial dependence. What of my commitment to feminism and all those working Moms out there?

I missed adults and their rational, reliable world. My brain was melting and my beautiful wardrobe gathering dust.

Worst of all, I hated feeling busy all the time, constantly asking myself: “but what are you actually doing?” I yearned to feel accomplished, to have something, anything, in my realm of control.

So I went back to work. It would be better that way. The financial burden would lessen. My mind would be challenged. I’d have adults to talk to. I’d come home happy and fulfilled.

But here’s what actually happened:

Life became a guilt-plagued balancing act. A box ticking repetitive groundhog day. Every day. Rush. Get the kids ready. Get myself ready (sort of). Drop them off. Go to work. Leave work. Pick the kids up. Get the kids down. Finish work. Drop dead for the night. Start all over again.

So as both a stay-at-home Mom and as a working Mom, I was miserable, stressed, overwhelmed and completely disconnected from myself and my family.

And so when baby number three made his appearance he brought along with him a moment of awakening.

Maternity leave with baby number three shone a mirror on what I was missing.

My high-strung-hamster-wheel-guilt-plagued lifestyle was getting in the way of the most important moments and relationships in my life.

My reactions to life’s Mom-stress were explosive and my connections with those I loved, unhealthy.

I was missing out on life.

And my kids were missing out on me.

These were moments I would never get back.

So I stopped. I started to learn to stay calm and enjoy the ride;

I started to relearn motherhood.

Since then I’ve retrained as a professional life coach and have worked with dozens of mothers from around the world to help them do the same – find calm and joyful living.

Because the truth is:

  • You know that these moments of motherhood will fly by
  • You know if you keep on this same path, you will have regrets (and they suck)
  • You know what is most important to you right now.

And now you know what you can do about it.
