Episode #99 Questioning Your If/then Statements

We live by a set of rules. A belief in cause and effect. If we do this, then this will happen.
However, how many of those beliefs have you questioned. Are you sure they still hold true for you? Or are you living from a causal statements that no longer holds weight in your life.
I’m offering up some cause and effect statements that real clients have brought to me.

Listen on your favorite podcasting app:

Can I just say, I really want to throw you all a life raft right now! So, I’m trying not to fall in the pool on this one!

We all have a lot of similar decisions to make in the fall and it can get overwhelming. Especially when our brain is looking at last spring as an indicator for what we have to look forward to!

What I want you to notice when I am coaching Katelyn is how even as she tries to decide on the perfect school choice for her son, she still feels overwhelmed and stuck.

The Circumstance can help a situation. We would like things to get back to normal. I agree. But the truth is, it’s not actually the distance learning creating our mood and relationships with our kids.

Even as she looks for a new option, she is holding on to the thought, ” He’s going to fight me every step of the way.”

The decision is not nearly as important as our thought. That’s why I LOOOVE coaching. And why I had to offer you this robot version of my coaching call. It was just too good.

The goal is not to get rid of anxiety. The goal is to find profound and noticeable relief from anxiety by allowing it.

Anxiety is an emotion that always starts with a less challenging feeling first.
What we describe as anxiety is simply the resistance to feeling negative emotion.

In this episode I am letting you into a recording of my “Minimizing Momma Anxiety” Masterclass where I teach my 4 magic tools to allow emotion and find immediate relief from the storm of emotions we often feel are out of our control.

With my webinar, “Throw Out Your To-Do list”, just around the corner, I wanted to share with you a glimpse into one of my client sessions.

Kristina shares with me that her child’s needs aren’t more important than her needs, but they are more urgent.

This has her constantly adjusting her schedule to accommodate which means she is struggling to make traction on her goals.

Listen in as we question the thought that our goals have to take away from our kids. Is it possible that creating our best life also adds to theirs?

#26 Relinquishing Control

Listen on your favorite podcasting app:

Have you ever been a back seat parent? … Me…I’m totally guilty of this with my husband. And, like you, I’ve struggled to sit quietly while he parents different than me because that is my child too, right?

Control is a funny thing. It feels so available to us and also so important.

This was true long ago when we were living in the wilderness. We needed to control whatever we could in order to stay alive.

But today, even though it’s less necessary, our brain tells us that we need to be in control or we might DIE!

The thing is, control is an allusion. The more you beleive you have it, the more stuck you feel.

Letting go of control and  focusing on how you think and feel is the way to power over your results.

Listen in for some surprising suggestions about what is not your “job”. It might just change your life.

#24 The FIVE Mom Myths (that you don’t have to believe anymore)

motherhood challenges

Listen on your favorite podcasting app:

There are 5 mom myths out there.

I call them myths because people mistake them for truth.

They create shame, overwhelm, guilt, indecision and anger.

And, I’m pretty sure you have believed at least one of these at some point in your momming career.

But, here’s the thing.

Thoughts are always optional. We get to choose them.
This means that we don’t need anyone to agree with us or evidence in order to believe a thought.

I suggest you believe something because it serves you.

So listen in. See if these myths are holding you back from being the best version of you.

Consider who you would be without these thoughts. Then take a moment and create your own definition of what makes  a good mom.

This is your new mantra. Watch your brain and remind yourself… You are doing amazing!

#18 Expectations

Expectations can sometimes feel like a double edged sword. Either I give them to my kids and then feel disappointed when they don’t get their jobs done, or I decide I’m done with all the hassle of telling them what to do and I

And, it doesn’t just stop with our kids. How do we manage our expectations when it comes to our spouse? How about our parents? We lean on these people for support and yet, they are still human. If we can’t make others show up for us, then how do we voice our expectations without feeling disappointment when they don’t follow through?

Im talking about all of this on the episode. Im even going to help you manage your expectations around that tricky adult child-parent relationship, and what to do when someone you love and lean on has depression.
