I was a moody and worn out mom (my story)

2016 I was a moody and worn out mom

It seemed I had it all, everything that I’d always said I wanted – March 2016.

Married to my high school sweetheart, with a healthy and happy baby boy, the opportunity to be there for him 24/7 while working from home, the three of us so content and in love with each other and with life.

But, was I? Was I really happy and content?

Who was I to say anything different… How could I admit that I was a moody, worn out mom?

How could I confess that my dream of being a work from home mom had slowly changed into a frustrated, disillusioned, disappointing cage of isolation?

The hundreds of days of neglecting my spiritual health.
The endless nights of broken sleep wearing me down in mind and body.

I was lost.

What was I going to do with the rest of my life?

When was my body going to feel like MY body again… healthy, fit, energetic, and resilient?

Was I really good enough to make a business work? To truly feel like I belong, that my gifts are needed?

Why can’t I be the gentle, patient, calm, and loving mom and wife I knew I was… ALL of the time?

One day, I started to find my answers.

One by one, they started knocking.

So I opened the door, with a commitment to changing and a resolution to become healthier and happier.

With every step I took, with every kindness I showed my body and my soul, my vitality returned.

Every day I made another investment in the health of my soul, and bit by bit I changed more into the woman who God meant me to be.

It’s been a LONG journey, and not without its setbacks.

My life is still not perfect, and even though I am not a supermom or faultless by any means, I can truly say that my life has never been better.

Today, I am content, passionate, energetic, and purpose driven.

I feel it in my body and my soul, and I can see it in the relationships and interactions with my son, my husband, and others I care about.

If you feel a bit like the women I was in this photo, I invite you to find out whether we could overcome this together.

I truly believe I am called to guide Christian women on their journey to vitality, passion, and fulfillment.
