Think back to your childhood. Was your mom stressed out? Did you seem to somehow miss the mark with her expectations often? 👧🧑🧒🧑👧 What was the thing you REALLY wanted from your mom?

Somehow, pajamas and general frumpiness become the uniform of motherhood. It’s so lame. We think it’s easier. And maybe it is. But it also reinforces a lot of the issues we face as moms like depression, lack of self-worth, isolation and boredom.
Put Your Big Girl Panties on will give you applicable questions, exercises, and advice from someone just like you. It will feel like a conversation at a coffee shop, filled with knowing glances and giggles. It will give you a safe space to feel the things you’re feeling while also coaching you ever closer to a better version of you. You see, one thing is absolutely 100% true. No one else is going to come along and magically save you. You are the hero of your own story. You are the one that is going to make your best life possible. You are going to show up for yourself, you are going to solve your own problems. And you’re going to feel really confident and satisfied when you do. You’re going to save yourself. Let’s go.
You're probably busy, you're stressed and you're anxious trying to do for them. You're probably weighing mom guilt and feeling stretched thin trying to do for them. But what do your kids really want? More than all you're doing "for them?" Your kids just want YOU to be happy.
We will continue this game. Positivity and encouragement are contagious. Furthermore, the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon tells us that as we start looking for these pause & applause moments we will actually notice them more. The more good you focus on, the more good you'll have to focus on. We are also reinforcing and rewarding awesome behavior. It's a cycle of awesome.
I call this building the love bank. We want more positive deposits than negative withdraws.

I'll take a break from my regularly scheduled coaching posts to throw these out there. We started the Elf on the Shelf five years ago without really knowing what we were getting into.
