Find Your Flow: Work-Life Integration for Busy Moms
Being a mom is the best, they say. Enjoy it while it lasts, they say. But how can you enjoy running the household, doing the groceries, the cooking, the cleaning, the finances, all the volunteer work for school (because you know you’ll be expected to do it), all the communications around school, planning the extracurriculars and then driving your kids to and fro', making snacks so they won’t go hungry between school and sports, planning the camping weekends, attending birthday parties? All the while holding down a job? All that mental load. You feel so tired and burned out.
And then, just like that, your kids get a bit older, just enough to not need you that much anymore. You begin to realize that you’ve lost yourself over the years. You’ve lived your life on autopilot way too long.
If that sounds like you, I understand your struggle because this has been my journey, too. The moment I realized that I had lost myself, I started to implement small changes.
My first step was to start with self-care. For me, that meant going to Yoga and riding my mountain bike. Then the mom-guilt struck again. So I tried to combine my self-care activities with an income and became an Instructor for both. It started out great, but working on weekends and evenings was not a long-term solution for our family.
Back to the drawing board of my life. I wanted to have adult conversations again, I wanted to be doing meaningful work. I learned more skills, I tried new things. I decided to deep dive into my passion and became an Emotional Intelligence coach. Then, I took the leap and started my own business, on my own terms with goals that would align with our family vision.
And what I’ve learned through my training and my experience is that once you stop “doing it all” and start asking for what you need, you will feel empowered. You will find yourself again.
Is it easy? No. Does my family have it all figured out yet? No, the kids grow and change, our needs as adults change too, and with these changes come new challenges. But I know that with the tools we’ve learned, we're on the right path to figuring it out as a family.
And I want the same for you. I want to take you on this journey of finding yourself and making your family vision a reality.
I want to help you find a work-life integration that works for YOU. So that you can accomplish your professional goals, reach financial independence, and enjoy a fulfilling family life at the same time.
