Effortless Expansion Episode #004: The Choice Is Yours
It’s officially back to school season and for me, and so many other moms, it can be a tough time. Here in Michigan, summer is so sweet and beautiful but the feeling that comes with the start of the school year is that of heaviness. It feels like the end of our freedom as we know it and the beginning of hustle mode. Or at least that's what it used to feel like.
I used to be a woman who wore busyness as a badge of honor, fully expecting to have something on my calendar every single day. I was hustling and I thought I was happy… until I realized I wasn’t. That’s when everything changed. In this episode I am going to share with you my story of going from rock bottom, having a spiritual awakening, to living my dream life with a regulated nervous system.
Evaluate Your Priorities and Make New Rules
I may sound like a broken record at this point, but you get to write your own rules for your life and your family! You don’t have to do things the way they’ve always been done or even the way you’ve done them in years past. You can decide right now to do things differently.
For example, I was recently making some phone calls to inquire about setting my oldest son, Tyler, up for a sport. I learned that he would have to go to practice for two or three nights a week after being at school all day. He’s six years old and that just felt icky for me and for my family. We value our time together more than anything and with that in mind, it was easy to see the right decision for us.
I used to be the busy woman with a corporate job, earning six figures per year, who had no freedom or flexibility in my schedule.
This mentality led me to massive burnout, serious adrenal fatigue, infertility and it almost broke my marriage. I was at my rock bottom and I was forced to reevaluate every aspect of my life. I made a change that changed the trajectory of my life and I had a massive realization. I thought that the busier I was the more successful and happy I would be and I was SO wrong.
I had to start asking myself important questions to get to the truth of what REALLY made me happy. Some of the questions I asked myself were:
- How can I connect to my spirit and tap into my intuition?
- Am I willing to spend time each day in quiet time for myself?
- What lights me up?
- Am I happy with my sex life, my marrige, and my relationship with my kids?
- What do I desire for my life?
- Who do I want to be?
- How do I want to live?
- What rules am I living by and do they serve me?
You always have a choice.
