Hey mom, how are you doing with life?
Are you tired, happy, exhausted, hopeful, productive, overwhelmed, content with life, hungry for change, busy, bored, loved, and lonely?
I am all of those things, simultaneously, all the time. If you identify with that feeling, you are not alone!
This is your time
You feel the need for big changes in your life. Or small changes. Or both. But how do you get from here to there?
You value quality time with your family, personal growth and development that fits your interests, a peaceful living environment, authentic relationships, a happy and healthy marriage, work-life balance, useful application for technology, strategies for using time effectively, a teamwork mindset, socially responsible living, meaningful work, and the ability to make a positive difference in the world.
Those are the values of our generation, and you have everything at your fingertips to make them all a reality for you and your family. That’s the good news, and it’s exciting! The bad news is that numerous obstacles and pitfalls await us as moms. We must navigate pressures from the culture, expectations from others both perceived and real, the pull of addictive technology, the allure of fast and convenient food that will compromise our health, and the incredible amount of information that is pushed toward us on a daily and hourly basis.
I am passionate about you and I as young millennial moms navigating these challenges and seizing the life set before us, the life we are meant to live. I want you to discover your values, find your beauty, embrace the right opportunities that are in front of you, seek out adventure, unleash your creativity, conquer your daily routine, harness technology to serve you, reinvent your finances, and find the right work-life and family-self balances that will allow you, your husband, and your kids to thrive.
You need to know who you are, and combine that with your husband and his uniqueness so that you can set goals that truly resonate with your family’s purpose, that will bring you closer to the life you are meant to live. Our generation is faced with incredible opportunities and privileges, as well as an overwhelming number of options, information, and expectations. We must cut through the clutter, knowing who we are and what really matters in order to find the right path for our families. We are at the heart of this generation, and I believe we have the ability to shape the world for the better, and be the generation that took what was given to us and ran with it.
You are unique
I believe that you are unique and even the best advice isn’t always the best for you until you understand yourself and can filter incoming information and know what is right for you. So I always like to start by talking about uniqueness, personality, gifting, and some tools and exercises that will help you understand you so that you know where you’re coming from.
I want to hear about your passions, goals and dreams so that I can help you achieve them. Life is multi-faceted and so are you. This blog is a place for you to rest and grow. I hope every time you visit you find both inspiration and challenge, that you are filled up and ready to pour out in a new way. I believe in you, this site is for you.
There are three exercises I want you to do that will help you build a foundation for growth and change in your life, and for following along on my blog. These are value discovery, identifying your motivational type, and listing your dreams. Each of these will be a rough draft and a work in progress. But engaging the concepts and doing the activity will get you in the right frame of mind to filter what I share here and to start thinking about some big ideas and what taking action on them might mean for you, and for your family.
I would also love for you to fill out my 10 question new user survey to help me keep writing content that is relevant for you.
I believe in you!
