Is It Just Us?

Am I the only one feeling ungrounded right now?

When I wake up in the morning, I don’t even know where to start.

Reaching for the news doesn’t serve me.

Getting ahead on work is fruitless. 

My meditations are unfocused (I’d go so far as to say “sloppy” but then there I am judging my meditations - which is counterintuitive).

Those home school schedules circulating on social media are making me feel more untethered, like if I can’t tick these boxes I’m no longer worthy of Pinterest (I’m just going to deactivate my account). I’m mindlessly doing for the sake of getting things done. Not a lot of meaning there. 

I’m like a mom zombie. Wandering through the day. Is it already four o’clock? 

It’s hard to trust our intuition right now with so much anxiety and uncertainty swirling around us. It’s easy to fall into autopilot or let someone else drive. And that’s ok for a minute, but not for the long haul. 

We need to feel our way into this new normal, to experiment, to play. It’s not going to be perfect. What does that even mean? 

There’s magic out there. We promise. You just have to let go of the shoulds so you can actually feel it. So you can play. 

When contraction and restriction are pervasive, play and expansion are the antidotes.

But Kelle and Nina, play just feels too big right now, so elusive.

Hang on, we always talk about how our thoughts create our actions, and our actions reflect our thoughts. The only thing we can control in life is our behavior. Think about that for a sec.

When I’m feeling yanked around by my emotions and thoughts, I need to get back in the driver’s seat. Be intentional.

I know exactly what I need to do here, and so do you. It starts with you.

So now, when I wake up, I walk through five questions* to prime my mindset for the day:

  1.     What am I grateful for?
  2.     Who am I checking in on or connecting with today? (today this was simply my kids)
  3.     What expectations of normal am I letting go of today?
  4.     How am I getting outside today?
  5.     What beauty am I either creating, cultivating or inviting in today? (beauty can be so simple and small, we feel like this is less overwhelming than bringing in, say, “joy”.)

We’re here for you, today and every day. But especially right now. Our mission is to help moms like you let go of the “shoulds”, make room for your unique needs and dreams, so you can show up as the mom you really want to be. And more. 

We want to support you in any way we can right now, so for a limited time we’re sharing a handful of tools we save for paying clients only. Look for links from us via social media over the course of the coming weeks. 

We all need some calm right now, so to start, check out our CALM method. Practice this framework and you’re on your way to yelling less and playing more - even on the toughest days. It’s like bicep curls for your emotional calm. 

Remember, it starts with you. 

Talk soon! 

*I have to credit some of this framework to my own coach. We collaborated today to turn down the volume in my buzzy head and get out the fog. We all need a coach. I’m so grateful for mine.
