To the mom who needs a break:

To the mom who needs a break:

I get it. It’s tough…

Juggling, balancing, bearing the burdens.

Running on empty so long you’re no longer comfortable with a full cup.

You’ve dug yourself into a rut.
Backed into a corner.

The stress has blinded your soul.

All you see when you look around is a to-do list. You can’t settle. You can’t rest.

You sit, you distract yourself. But you don’t rest. You don’t restore your soul. You can’t.

I get it. It’s tough…

Mother’s Day is hard when you don’t know that you want to be a mom anymore.

You look at those precious kids and your heart breaks for the love you can’t seem to feel anymore. Of course you love them, but the feeling isn’t as vibrant these days.

I get it. It’s tough…

But can I offer you a slice or hope? A bit of peace?

It won’t always be this way. You will find the light again. You’ll find YOUR light and let it shine. You’ll feel it all again. All the love and peace and passion you’re wishing for. It’s all going to come back to you.

But it’s not just going to happen. You can wait until your kids are grown and hope to find peace later in life. You’ve got to make it happen now.

You have to make a change in your everyday habits and thoughts if you want to see a change in your response to stress and overwhelm.

Mama, you can do it. I know you can because I didn’t think I could either.

Go kiss your babies and make a big long gratitude list you look at every time you forget how to love them deeply.

2: Showing up for Your Kids Through Burn-Out (when you can barely show up for yourself) Meant to Bloom

Surviving burnout and depressive episodes isn't easy, but it's possible and it's worth it.  In today's episode I'm sharing how I get through the rough patches in motherhood.  For starters, let it be easy. Drop the guilt over lowering your expectations and conserve your energy so you can focus on what's really important in your life.  Prioritize connection with your kids during this time. So what if laundry is piled in the kitchen sink and the dishes are on fire. Focus on family and love when you're totally over being overwhelmed. Watch Disney movies, play games, hide away in a blanket fort.  Share your struggles with your kids. You don't have to tell them everything, but you can be honest with them and tell them you aren't feeling great and that it's okay. Sometimes we can't show up for people the way they need us to, but it doesn't mean we don't love them. Show them how you heal, so they will know how to heal too. Break the generational curses. It ends with you.  Talk about mental health with your kids, so they understand that it's okay to talk about mental health. Sometimes burn out is more than burn out – reach out for professional help if you're struggling with depression. BetterHelp is an amazing resource for speaking with a licensed therapist.  Click here for more Show Notes.
