I recently came across this question in some reading I was doing. What if I said that today is the first day of the rest of your life - would you keep doing what you are doing right now? It has been mulling in my brain for a week or so and it got me thinking about my life as a parent. My first reaction to the question is to say - of course! However, had I answered 10 years ago it would have not necessarily been the same one.
When we were "deep in the trenches" of parenting our hurt children, I often questioned myself as Mom; there were moments I couldn't believe the things that came out of my mouth and my overall ability to be happy seemed to be gone forever. It was SO hard.
Here's the thing - I eventually answered that question with a resounding NO, I don't want to keep doing things the WAY I am doing them now, but I DO want to keep being a MOM. I was unhappy. I didn't feel like a good Mom at all. My child was clearly not happy either. I had to figure something else out. I learned how to do things differently and it worked.
In that moment, when I decided to fight for my family and fight for my happiness, I also decided to fight for anyone else who felt as lost and alone as I did. I decided right then and there that I was going to figure out the answers and NO FAMILY would walk through this alone as long as I had something to say about it! You are NOT alone!
How do YOU answer the question? What if I said that today is the first day of the rest of your life - would you keep doing what you are doing right now? If you feel stuck or alone, if you are struggling with parenting your hurt child, if you are feeling like a terrible Mom, it's time to change how you are doing things and I would be honored to help. It does NOT have to be this hard.
Simply put...I am here to help you if you are ready.
Remember...you are NOT alone,
