I wrote this love letter to you one morning after waking up with the feeling that a physical weight was on my chest. The day before, I’d read a few emails from some sweet mamas who were struggling so deeply in their day to day lives.
I struggle sometimes to listen without screaming “I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT WILL REMOVE THIS LOAD FROM YOUR SHOULDERS!”
My heart is with you if you’re struggling, beautiful friend! You are the reason I do what I do… you’re why I started my business.
Here’s what I want you to do with this love letter…
Read it with your name at the top. I wrote it for YOU specifically. If this resonates with you, it’s you it was meant for. Take it as yours and let it encourage and inspire you to go a different way.
Dear (Your First Name),
I know you’re feeling super defeated lately. My heart aches for you when I hear that you’ve been struggling with being stretched so thin, living on the brink of breaking all the time, and feeling like you’re not the mom you want to be.
I’ve so been there!
I remember when we lived in that one rental house back in 2012, I would feel so guilty about where I was at in my life and how that showed up for my kids. I was constantly exhausted, but I could never stop without serious consequences.
If I let things go for a morning of coffee, quiet time, and enjoying my home and my kids, I’d pay for it by having to clean up all afternoon while also balancing snack and meal times, naps, eating something myself (some days I would just skip that), switching the laundry, and running the day.
All the while, the dishes were piling high, the laundry pile was getting bigger, not smaller, and that burden manifested itself in my mood, and came out on my kids. I felt terrible all the time.
No matter how hard I’d determine to not lose my cool, not yell, and just “stay on top of it all”, I’d crack at some point because it was all too much.
It felt insane to me that the solution was to wake up every morning, hit the ground running, and not stop cleaning something until my head hit the pillow that night. Like, is this really the only way? Is this what motherhood is gonna look like til the kids are grown?! It was overwhelming and defeating.
But this is why I love what I do so much… it sets moms free from this trap of defeat and discouragement! It allows them to actually ENJOY their homes, their kids, their husbands, and their days.
I don’t believe we were meant to constantly maintain our homes, then send our kids off to college. It’s just not good enough.
Motherhood is forever, but the time we spend actually raising our babies is so short and fleeting in terms of our lifetimes… this can’t be the way it’s supposed to be!
I get so crazy psyched about helping women step out of survival mode and into abundant life - I can’t help myself! Because I know that when they simplify, cut back, pare down, and get intentional about what they’re allowing to take up their space and time, things change. Big time.
I want that for you, friend. I think about it every day… I want you to experience that incredible shift in your home, and I want you to see how it spills over into your motherhood.
This is real, and it’s incredible. I want you to get seriously empowered by the effect your space has on your motherhood. I want you to have that lightbulb moment where you finally see how easy it is to take your life back and live your priorities out, so that the way you spend your days is the way you feel inside.
You’re not neglecting the relationships that are important to you because the maintenance of your daily life and your physical space are sucking up 80% of what you have to give.
I’m ready to help you when you’re ready to say yes. This is why I’m always telling you about the programs I’ve spent months creating… this is what they do for you! They cause massive change.
I’m here, friend. And I’m rooting for you, always. But no change can happen unless you make the choice to accept it and take the first step.
