To all my fierce moms,
Checking off those boxes in my own life; The dream job, married with two beautiful children and a home to call my own….
STILL left me feeling unsettled, task driven, exhausted, anxious, and not finding true joy in life. Something always seemed to be missing. For many years, I had a growing passion to help others outside of medicine but was too scared to pursue that calling. Why? Because “checking boxes” is how we feel we obtain the “ideal life” and become the perfect wife, friend and mother.
Honoring that inner calling would have meant disrupting my family’s schedule, possible financial changes, stepping outside my comfort zone and facing the opinions of family, friends and colleagues…SO, I just stayed.
Yep! That is what mom guilt looks like! I was allowing expectations and fear to hold me hostage in a place I knew wasn’t giving me complete happiness! I was making sacrifices to please everyone around me and not putting myself first! We all do this in some facet of our lives… but WHY?
It took being at my lowest point to find my truth, its when you are there… you look around and evaluate how you ended up in such a place! As a result, I decided to start change through self care with nutrition, exercise and mindset. Over time, I started to realize I was MORE than those titles (chains) that held me hostage and that was liberating!
Checking off the “boxes in life” WILL NOT fulfill your true purpose or make you achieve your BEST self!
I have a passion to help others break free of those chains holding them hostage and start on a path of true happiness. Let’s stop living by expectations and start living for our true purpose!
