Are you a mom who feels stressed out all the time with the responsibilities of home, work and family? Or, do you just feel like you are treading water and your life has stagnated?
We all experience these feelings from time to time, but learning to be more intentional with the way that we spend our time and learning to prioritize things that are meaningful to us can help us feel happier, healthier and more fulfilled.
I felt that way too. Outwardly, everything in my life was fine. But ‘fine’ didn’t feel like it was enough. I wanted things to be good. I had needs swimming below the surface that were unfulfilled.
My family wasn’t exactly struggling, but we were just maintaining the status quo. Our income was just enough to pay our bills, but never enough to get ahead. My partner was working long hours at a job he didn’t like, just so we could pay some minimal bills and keep our toddler in daycare. It felt like all we were doing was working, and not enjoying our time as a family enough because we were always too tired.
I felt like we were working too hard and sacrificing too much to be going nowhere. I felt like there had to be a better way to get through life, so I made the goal planner contained in this book for myself to take a deeper look at my life and what was important to me.
Using this goal setting process, I started to ask myself some hard questions. I asked myself:
What do I really want? What makes me happy?
What does my perfect life look like?
How can I downsize to stop worrying about money?
When I went through this process, I didn’t do it alone. I talked things through with my partner, at every step of the way. We tossed around ideas about how to change our lives for the better. We wanted to go from surviving to thriving.
My e-book, "Happy. Healthy. Rich. The smart mom's guide to living your best life" outlines the process that I used in my own life to become happier, healthier and more fulfilled.
