The Mother Load

The Mother Load

The mother load. 😆💄👩🏻‍✈️

We work in and outside the home, we nurture and care all throughout the day and night, we drive, we push for love to win (while pushing strollers) and fly if we need to get where they each need us to be…we do it all. 

And though we’re good at it, sometimes, the reality is that it’s not (all) good for us. 

[Louder for those in the back]…just because we’re good at something, doesn’t mean it’s good for US. 

— healthy to realize and to, long before depletion, do something about, as necessary and if possible (I know it’s not always possible). Because — they get most from our *being* than our doing. 

Shout out to all those holding families together (you’re the fireplace of the family), while also burning the midnight oil to make sure everyone is clothed, fed, getting good sleep and feeling heard and understood. 

I hope you, too, are warm, clothed, fed, getting good sleep and feeling heard and understood!

Join Me In Malibu!

Join Me In Malibu!

I love a sexy heel, but I’m more comfortable in hiking boots, I’ve shared this before…

Ask me to choose between going to a fancy dinner or to trek that next peak or valley (no matter how hot or heavy the pack on my back), or whether that peak or valley be emotional, physical or spiritual and I’ll choose door two every time.

I’m finally (officially) bringing together my worlds of business & brand coaching with spiritual practices, rituals and ways of being to what it’s honestly always been (as clients have known) ~ a spiritual business or project coaching model now taking you to hills, mountains and other natural places or on physical adventures to work on what *naturally* wants to “go” (you’ve had the ACTUAL thing you’ve wanted to pursue either on the back burner or on pause now for too long). 

Come on the land with me in August! Care to know more? Reply back to this email.

For the mental load, solutions and babies we carry…

Bless YOU.

Partnership

Josh and I call our partnership a 51% partnership. 

The goal is to each give that much or do that much (be that much to the family). 

I recently went to Nashville for the week with my sis and this idea was coming through as true, too, as I revamp my coaching business/practice (I get to give 51% x 2 or 3 ha as a business owner for this other baby! ;). 

Josh and I do different things for our family, but the commitment and effort is felt as the same ~> it’s Effort with a capital E. It’s what has made touching joy in our family so available over, not just the last 16 years, but over the entire 21 years (Josh and I were a family before this cutie pie joined us). 

That each of our presence is felt in the L I F E of the family and to Nolan has been one top priority. 

I don’t “have help” in Josh when I leave or have left in 16 years (throughout our parenthood, you could say I’ve been gone a lot — as much as Josh has), & we are parents & partners in everything and we do it all.

That we say thank you to each other for doing this or that, means not that we are thanking one another like “thanks for helping me”, but because we each see the Effort the other brings. 

Whatever’s needed, we do. 

To any & all building a family or a business/career, so much of the peace, calm or “results” comes from this particular kind of effort, the capital E kind, BUT most importantly, the kind that’s tied to what’s most Essential.

If you’re giving to family or business in ways that are not Essential to that entity — or only in the ways you find important (to/for you) — but unimportant to others, it’s simply coined energy spent & wheels turning. 

Give, love & create in ways that are Essential to your people. 

Ask them!

To me right now & in real time — a particular brand of attention & nurturing given to this here family as Nolan preps to plan for college or a gap year — and quality time with my sister in Nashville…each Essential. 😉

Make time. SEE people’s Effort and give it yourself. Give in the ways others actually FEEL it.
