I am deeply passionate about inspiring people to find inner and outer peace in their lives and on creating a peaceful family. This is my life’s work.
Children, by their very nature, are not very peaceful. They are loud. Messy. Spontaneous. Silly. Defiant.
Oh but those moments when they are … it is a beautiful thing.
Often, though, they create a life filled with requests, messes, mistakes, sibling conflict, worries and noise.
And so we know exactly why that Calgon commercial that still, to this day, uses its escapism message to moms by appealing to a fantasy many moms have while raising children.
Just take me away …
Except motherhood is not something that we can leave.
We’re in the thick of it. We’re in the trenches. At least the majority of us that do stay and tough out the hard parts and they are almost all hard, in my experience.
Over the years, I have led a movement that is based around a set of practices — the four pillars of being an Abundant Mama — that when applied to your life intentionally and consistently offer up a more peaceful life for a mom. I have seen this method work over and over and over.
Because the truth is that it is up to us to create a peaceful family.
And that brings me to this week’s podcast episode of The Abundant Mama Show, which is Lesson 4 in my series 13 Parenting Lessons From 13 Years of Parenting.
