Calling all compassionate, driven, kind-hearted, giving, loving, inspirational, fun, joyful, articulate, health-conscious, spiritually curious women that want to love and fully incorporate all of their interesting parts into their lives.
I’m looking for women that want to join up with other women like this that share a common thread: they may not be completely comfortable with it just yet, but deep down, they love that they’re unique and they feel incomplete by ignoring it. They have a burning desire to celebrate it and celebrate that same thing in other women as well.
Women who may be moms and want to make sure their children get this whole concept too.
Women that want their children to grow up and love who they are and love that uniqueness in the people that they meet in life, too.
For me, happiness and fulfillment are influenced by many, many things. But there’s a solid foundation to my happiness and fulfillment that is based on loving who I am, loving what I love and incorporating it all into my everyday life. Instead of compartmentalizing it and keeping my spirituality in a neat little box over here, and my love for holistic healing in a neat box over there, and the fact that I am a mom who wants to set a really positive example for my children over there in that box and the fact that I’m still a woman with dreams to fulfill over here….
I love the idea and the practice of acknowledging all of that, everything, and being involved with all of those parts of myself.
What I’m up to right now is this: I’ve been working with/at The Body Mind Spirit Center that’s local to me. We have lots of cool stuff going on right now, with a lot more to come.
I’m putting together a Selfish Mama Group. A tribe. A posse. A gathering of like-minded (yet completely individual women) that want to be the best damn moms they can be….and the best, happiest and most fulfilled women they can be. This group will encourage and facilitate how to better accept ourselves, share our experiences and support one another on this quest to fulfillment.
It’s of the upmost importance to me that I raise happy, healthy, contributing future adults. It’s also of the upmost importance to me that when I’m old and gray (er than I am now) I’m able to look back on my life and be genuinely satisfied with how I spent my time. I want to make sure that I pursued my dreams, was genuinely happy and grateful, treated those that were important to me like gold and that I didn’t waste the resources, gifts and blessings that I had.
How about you?
This is what I have scheduled for the month of April. Here’s what we’re talking about:
♥ Weird You: Using Your Uniqueness to Be a Kick-Ass Mom
♥ Giving Mom-Guilt the Boot so You Can Focus on the Good Stuff
♥ Kids & Regret: How Mom Sets the Tone for Future Fulfillment
♥ Getting Organized: Tackling Mental & Emotional Clutter
I’m all about mixing the practical with the spiritual, personal growth stuff. Because even though we want to be our best, most amazing and happiest versions of ourselves, seek bliss, enlightenment and all that good stuff, we still have to deal with things like clutter, getting lost in our thoughts and worries, feeling bad for taking time for ourselves and feeling happy on a regular basis.
So, my goals for this whole endeavor is to connect women and build a tribe of supportive, like-minded women that are passionate about living genuinely satisfying lives. I want to provide a safe, soothing, relaxing and fun environment for all of this to go down. Also, I want you to walk away with tips and bits of advice that are actually helpful. Things that you can apply to your life starting right now.
If you’re still reading this blog post but you don’t live locally to me and can’t join us at the Shirt Factory in Glens Falls, New York….don’t fear! I am definitely entertaining the idea of offering this online as well. A weekly or bi-weekly call where we’ll have the same type of thing going on….a specific topic that I’ll share, conversation starters and advice to share. Then, the ladies joining in can chat as well. It’ll still be an active discussion.
The thing that I really love about having a workshop or class that is discussion-based is that you get to hear how this affects other women-from their perspective-and that can be such a huge opportunity to learn and grow. If you hear someone that gets what you’re going through and they share how they went through it and what came of it, it can be very inspirational.
Also, you get to share your expertise with other women and help them. Most women love to help others, it’s just in our blood, so when we get to do this, it feels amazing….it’s why I do this. Because I can’t get enough of helping others. It feels so damn good.
Now, there are a lot more details to come and I want you to make sure that you get every little bit that you need in order to join us, whether in person or online.
