Why am I unhappy?
This is a common phrase I hear from moms asking me if they think my Abundant Mama 30-Day Reset program will help them.
Being unhappy as a mother produces a lot of guilt and shame for moms.
Being unhappy down to your core also prevents you from experiencing true joy at work and at home.
During coaching sessions, we dig into why you are feeling unhappy. And certainly there are a lot of underlying causes of unhappiness.
- A failing marriage.
- Unhappy family life.
- Lack of time and space for yourself.
- Toxic workplace or boss.
- Explosive child.
Let’s face it, any one of these situations would cause some distress. But often my clients are experiencing more than one at a time.
This causes severe overwhelm because you feel like you have no control over you life — no true source of joy.
You feel trapped in a life that you didn’t want.
You feel like you live your life for others and you have no idea who you are and what you need.
If you are feeling this way, I can tell you that you are not alone — and I can tell you the secret to being a happy mom.
The Secret to Being a Happy Mom
You do what I tell every single mama who begins life design coaching with me: You start to shape your whole life around your joy and pleasure.
My Abundant Mama Wake Up & Thrive Membership Program is a great place to start with this as it is all about helping you learn to how to take better care of yourself and design motherhood to include more joy.
Put all the shoulds away because mothering shouldn’t be so hard. I mean, it’s hard … we don’t need to make it harder by piling a bunch of extraordinary expectations on top of our to-do list.
We’re all figuring it out. Ever read a parenting book where the author actually got it “right” with their own kids? If you have, please let me know. 🙂
So. Do your thing. Do what you think is best.
