Dear Sweet Mama,
I see you.
I see you holding up the world on your shoulders one day at a time.
I see you keeping it all together.
And I see you trying so hard, all the time, to do everything perfectly.
I see the smile fade from your face when you realize you’ve disappointed someone you love.
I hear the hurt in your voice when you apologize.
I feel the pain in your heart when you’ve missed the mark.
After all, I am you. I have been you. I have been you a million times a day.
Just a mom trying to get it all right. To make everyone happy. Trying to keep herself happy. Trying to get through another day with as few fires as possible to put out.
Just a mom who is learning to let go, trust and surrender to so much.
All of those overs that show up each day are your teacher. The areas where letting go, trusting and surrendering will give you freedom.
I’m a big fan of freedom.
Freedom from expectations — mine and others.
Freedom from shoulds — mine and others.
Freedom from doing it all — mine and others.
This week, I announced a BRAND NEW WAY for you to work with me to go deeper into the Abundant Mama Way and I couldn’t be more thrilled to offer this to you, a VERY IMPORTANT PERSON in my community.
I’m excited to mentor you on what I know about letting go, trusting and surrendering after 13 years of raising twins, experiencing working full-time, working from home and being an active volunteer in my community.
I’m going to give you a toolbox to gauge what works and what doesn’t.
My mission is to help you navigate life with a lot more ease and a lot more simplification around your daily life.
Actually, no. My goal is to help FREE you up for the magical memory making things you want more of in your life. Because life is short. And we need to be spending it on things that matter most to us.
Not on shoulds. Or perfection.
These 4 blissful, 90-minute self-care reTREATS will take you on a deep dive into each of the four pillars of the Abundant Mama Way using poetry, meditation, journaling and other goodness. And the best part is that they are recorded and you don’t even have to show up if you don’t want to. 🙂
Actually. No. The best part is that there is NO homework. Ever. I promise. Pinky swear.
Just show up. Soak in the goodness. Then return to your beautiful, chaotic life and implement.
This is the first in a 4-part series of online reTREATS over the next four months. The others are NOURISH, PLEASURE AND ENOUGHNESS. Join me to go deeper into this work over the next four months!
You know you need to relax, to let go and lighten up but HOW? How do you do that when so much needs to be done and managed and checked off? This AMP reTREAT will passionately lead you through exercises around trust, letting go and, of course, surrender. (reTREAT Day is Friday, Feb. 1 at 1 p.m. EST.) This topic is so rich, so needed for any mom who struggles with letting go, lightening up and learning to say no. LEARN MORE ABOUT THE SURRENDER RETREAT HERE
You can sign up to work with me for all four sessions — or just dip one toe into the AMP waters and sign up for ONE. Up to you, my friend.
—> Registrations for the 4-part series end on Friday, Jan. 31. And our first reTREAT will happen on Friday, Feb. 1 at 1 p.m. EST. Learn more about ALL four sessions here.
** Again, you do NOT have to show up live. You only have to make a cuppa tea and some space in your day, evening or weekend to watch the replay, which you may want to do a few times this year. Like when life gets crazy and you need to re-train yourself on letting go and trusting and surrendering.
