You dread playing.
You resist having fun with your child.
If you are at all like many of my clients, you want to be more playful and have more fun but your desire to get things done and be the serious leader of your family.
Perhaps you were raised to believe that adulthood is about getting things done and in motherhood that’s pretty much all there is time for — or so it seems.
But your child wants to connect with you.
And you want that bond and connection as well.
If you are often too exhausted and overwhelmed to relax, lighten up and be playful … you are in the right place.
It’s time to stop living on the sidelines of your own life.
You are living, yes, but not fully enjoying life with your children and partner.
Don’t confuse going through the motions with being playfully present.
The truth is that it can be a challenge to move from adulting to playing with full abandon.
After all, you carry a big load of responsibilities, handle most of the emotional and mental labor of your family and, your own expectations on life zap you of energy to play and have fun.
All of that pressure to keep your life running smoothly leads to stress, distraction and overwhelm as well as feelings of not being good enough.
You long for a day when you can truly open up and be playfully present.
It’s time to change this story …
Right now, your story may sound something like this:
- I hate playing with my kids
- I don’t have time for playing
- I don’t know how to even play anymore
- Taking time for playing makes me feel like I’m wasting time
- I feel so guilty that I don’t play more
- I am so tired of taking life too seriously
- I’m too distracted to play
- I should be more intentional about offering playful activities
- I dread it when my child asks me to play
It’s true you are not a child anymore.
But your Inner Playful Mama does want to enjoy life. She wants to laugh. She wants to smile more. She is just waiting for permission to stop working so hard so she can play.
Being more playful in your life — as a mother — will open up so many possibilities for your creativity and your life. It’s not just about playing and creating that amazing connection with your child. It’s about reconnecting with who YOU are.
That’s exactly the kind of permission you will receive in Playful Mama Camp, an online e-Course adventure to show you how to infuse a playful mindset into your life so you can finally be open and embracing of play in your everyday life.
