Do you find yourself saying “I’m too busy!” even during a pandemic where we’re not “doing” much of anything?
We all have the same 24 hours. Our days fill, but have you ever taken the time to do an inventory of where you allocate your time?
Time is one of our most valuable resources & yet we can be careless with it, take for granted that we’ll always have it or ignore the precious moment that we have right in front of us, caught up in worry about the past or the future.
Over time, we’ve learned to treat relationships with the same disregard that we treat time. We can be careless, take them for granted & ignore them when we are overwhelmed!
As Moms, sometimes we mistake being busy with being connected. After all, when we spend so much time “doing” for our kids, we understandably get caught up in busy-ness of life & can easily confuse them being attached to our hip, for being connected ;)
Sure, we talk all the time, but what are you talking about? Do you truly understand THEIR experience of life or do you simply projectile vomit your agenda & experience of life all over them? (Sorry for the graphic but this is what we do! Right?!)
Authentic connection is something that we build with our kids. It is made up of trust, boundaries, accountability, non-judgement, generosity, integrity & time.
Sometimes, we need to allow space, silence, for conversation to unfold, in order for our child to feel comfortable enough to share their thoughts, feelings & experiences without feeling pressured.
It is very difficult to connect with anybody else when we have not learned how to give ourselves the space to get in touch with our true self.
Connecting with our SELF requires these same key principles. Learning how to TRUST yourself , set BOUNDARIES, be ACCOUNTABLE, NON-JUDGEMENTAL, GENEROUS, & TRUE to your word requires guidance, in the same way that we are guiding our children.
In this email Lovely, I’m giving you permission to clear your agenda & make time to learn how to connect with your SELF.
This is not a free pass for a spa day! This is time & space to be vulnerable, to face truths that you may fear, to ask for help, to UN-learn why you believe to be true & to set yourself free from worry, stress & anxiety so you can be available for your child!
