This episode is not what you may think it's about- today I'm talking about how we fall into the comparison trap that can make us absolutely MISERABLE! I'm sharing a perspective shift that can help you to look at others a little differently- and have the help of my friend Lyndy who wrote a beautiful song- Pick Flowers- available today on Spotify!
I LOVE the word MOXIE- and in case you need a definition: force of character, determination, or nerve. Basically- you're tough and nothing is getting in your way. As Shauna looked to the future she became the epitome of MOXIE, which inspired the name of her company now- Making Moxie. You should be imagining flappers and sassy women right now- women who aren't quiet. Sound like the day we live in now?
There are moments in motherhood that can be horrific and jaw-dropping in the moment that become the best stories later. This one put me at my wits' end as a young mother, but looking back now I can't help but laugh as I envision it all over again in my mind! If you're trying to "survive" any phase of parenting, this one is for you!
Listen, we all think magic is something that happens when you wish upon a star, or requires large grandiose efforts. But what I'm discovering the longer I raise kids and reflect on my own childhood, is that magic is in the moments that create the memories! It doesn't require big trips to Disneyland, or a perfectly crafted adventure; it is many times just in the feelings and simple elements we can't even plan for!
If you've been a listener for a while, you know I've given a go to homeschooling in the past. People like Cass Miller are what has inspired me to give it another shot! Cass decided she wanted something different for her life and her family's, so she stays home and teaches her children. Is homeschool something you've thought about, but you aren't sure? This episode will give you some great insight and motivation if you decide it's what is right for your family!
I'm not a list making mom- I'm not a "planner person", and I lack a lot of the organizational skills that other women have to help them not go insane. At least that was the "old me". Now I am evolved and realizing how something as dreadful as making a to-do list or having structure can actually help me accomplish FAR more in my life! Today's Five Minute Friday should help you to see more clearly what needs to be done and how to get to it!
Wow you guys, Alison is amazing! I was impressed just listening to her success as an entrepreneur and the businesses she's created, but when I heard what she's done with some of her kids, I was blown away! She has set the bar pretty high when it comes to setting your kids up for their own financial freedom. Don't we all want the peace of mind of knowing our kids will be grow up and be able to make a living? Why not start them young?! If you want to know what I'm talking about, just tune it to today's episode and see for yourself.
