Episode 016: Push Pause and Restart


This week’s episode is all about pausing life when it gets stressful, then pushing the restart button when you’re ready. I frame it like a movie, and confess that sometimes I feel like that’s exactly what I’m living in. Life gets overwhelming sometimes, especially during a pandemic, and you may wonder if this is real life! Wouldn’t it be great to be able to fast forward to the end of this scene and restart where it gets better, more interesting, or the kids are behaving the way you actually want them to?

Even in the good times, it’s kind of nice to push pause and live in the moment a bit longer before it gets close to the end. See? I really do think of life like a movie!

So often we busy moms get so overwhelmed but keep pushing through, without asking for help, without pausing to address our own needs, and certainly without giving ourselves credit for all the things we actually are accomplishing beautifully each day.

That’s why I created a mini course that’s all about giving yourself credit for the things you are doing that never even make it on your to do list! It’s a video from a mom talk I did a couple years ago with a quick and easy workbook to fill out as you listen, so you are sure to note what you need, what you really are getting done, and how you can give yourself more credit for those things.

Don’t worry, this isn’t just one more thing to add to your to do list. I’m a busy mom too. I wouldn’t do that to you! It’s good stuff, I promise.

Here are the highlights from this episode:

Here’s the Kids and Schedule Mini Course link with the video, workbook, a snack and lunch demo perfect for getting you ready for the week when the kids are back to school, and even a Q&A with some moms in the audience:
