Self Care

Self care πŸ’•


It’s a popular phrase these days and quite often when words or phrases become on trend we tend to forget the true meaning behind them.

Self care is about finding things in your life to fill up your cup – yes, but it can also be about reshaping your perspective and intention around things you already do in your life to allow them to be a form of self care for you.

What kind of life are you choosing to live if you “don’t have time” for yourself?

If you are feeling drained, flat, uninspired, easily irritated then let me help you turn your life around. I offer Skype sessions and can even come to your home to make it easier for you to start making decisions to put yourself as a priority.

It’s my mission to encourage mothers in the world to learn how to balance their own needs along with the needs of their loved ones. πŸ’—

Conscious

Growing up I thought my parents knew the answer to everything, their words and actions were so powerful because they were the first example I ever had.

There came a point in my life when I was probably in my early twenties that I realised they too are just on their journey of growth and realisation.

Now being a parent, I’m learning everyday just like they were and I have a whole new found appreciation for everything they did both effective and ineffective from my point of view.

People carry out their lives with the tools they have to take action and make decisions accordingly. There will always be some things that we do that may be ineffective as parents but the more conscious we are of our growth and owning our mistakes the more conscious and grounded our children will become as adults. Love, Connection & Acceptance amongst some others are all things I highly value and as I truly learn to find those things in myself I am able to express them for my loved ones.

Making a commitment to yourself and your growth is also making a commitment to those you love πŸ’•πŸ’—πŸ’œ

Let Them Show You

β€’LET THEM SHOW YOUβ€’

I’m learning every day how to be a mum, a human, an entrepreneur, a woman, a sister, a daughter, a friend and a partner…

I have noticed a change in Scarlett’s behaviour the last couple of weeks and I know kids will be kids but I realised some of her behaviour has been a way to get my attention. She is checking out the boundaries and learning how to be.

It came to me the other day when she was pulling my hair while I was trying to get some work done. I asked her to stop and I told her it hurt me, dismissively (focusing on what I was doing), she laughed nervously and did it again my response was to turn around and yell ouch and get mad (and don’t get me wrong of course I’ve reacted like that in the past, I’m human) but this time I stopped in the moment and I said do you need some love and she looked up at me and said “yes mummy, cuddles”.

I see this growth and testing of boundaries from S as a call for more connection and guidance. She needs my undivided attention more. So I’m going to do my best to be better at that.

No one is perfect but if you are willing to be open to the signs and experiences gifted to you and step into the growth they bring then your journey as a mother and a women can be one of ultimate love and transformation πŸ’•πŸ’—

Testing Times

TESTING TIMES ✨


It’s easy to seem like you have everything together until your toddler loses it in public.

I find myself getting quickly overwhelmed and bending over backwards trying to reason with an almost 2 year old that is not interested in listening to anything I have to say in the moment.

People stare at us and a part of me cringes at what they ‘must’ be thinking.

Suddenly any judgement I had prior to becoming a mum and all the things I said I would surely never do seem to go out the window because I really never knew what it’s like to be in this situation.

S had that many tantrums last night through the airport, at check in, screaming and throwing herself around because she had to sit on my lap for take off. Tears started to well up in my eyes as I had to hold her down in my lap while the plane got ready to take off. By this point I was feeling defeated, alienated and alone. The flight attendant stopped as she went to sit down for take off and told me it would all be ok and not to stress…That one person who could see I was really struggling made all the difference. All I needed to hear was some words of encouragement.

Next time you see a mum with a tantrum throwing child let her know she’s going to be ok and not to worry.

In reflection I think the main stress comes from worrying what others think, I have to remind myself that their opinion really doesn’t matter to me and I need to provide the space for my daughter to let all that built up emotion out in a safe space both emotionally and physically. The calmer I can be the more loving and safe the space is, which will allow her to let it all out.

I’m grateful for the experience and the challenge it has brought me because I’m learning everyday more about myself and how I can be for my daughter. πŸ’•
