In this parenting series of the challenge, we talk about increasing your confidence in your life choices, self-talk with yourself and your children, and bringing awareness to your current situation where you can stop generational patterns so that you can begin living the life you envision for your children and of course yourself.  

A reminder to go back to week 1 and 2 and 3 challenges so you know how to incorporate what we will talk about for the final week’s topic. 

So I kinda left you hanging on the last challenge and I felt like I had to do that because you needed to get some prep in your step when it came to accomplishing things in your life. So you believe in your capabilities, no matter how big or small they are in the past month.

So why not continue down this path?  

There is a weird invisible high standards competitive streak of who did what better in life by comparing what kind of job we have, while judging others for the ‘lower’ end kinda jobs. Competition in how we look and feel and personal life experiences and that is just not cool. It is honestly ridiculous to feel like life is a competition. It isn’t. 

There were times where you had to give yourself permission to feel what you feel, then had to think about for the past month how you are thinking about yourself and your children. It does start to turn some wheels that have not been turned in a very long time.

Let me ask you this, since last week when you noticed your own capabilities, how did you feel? 

Did you feel silly? Or like geez I do a ton of work. Maybe you’ve given yourself a high five, pat on the back. Maybe reflecting on what the hell you have been doing the past month. However you feel, you are totally entitled to feel it.  

So why is this crucial?

It is key to notice your abilities because we as mothers, do not give ourselves enough credit for what we do.

We compare ourselves by: 

  • Other moms
  • Women who probably do not have children
  • Our moms, aunts, grandmothers, and friends
  • Unrealistic tv shows and movies
  • Social media (I truly dislike this!) 

The comparison game needs to end. You are doing your best right, being here for this challenge means you want to create changes, correct? 

This is the beginning of the journey for yourself and how you can change the narrative of your life.

Your self-nurturing journey is not a destination, it is a lifetime journey and you can fill that journey with whatever you want. Whatever food, thoughts, items, people, boundaries, beliefs. You are able and capable to do it. I mean you finally realize after last week’s challenge that you have accomplished a bit more than you thought right, why not continue that momentum? 

So for this week’s challenge, write down or record somewhere you feel safe to do so about how you want to change your current situation in your life.

It can be about anything: 

  • Becoming a millionaire
  • Learning how to talk to your teenagers and toddlers
  • Learning how to cook or bake. 
  • Learning the latest trendy dance 

Does not matter. Whatever you come up with, it is yours to keep. This is for you to be mindful of what you want in this lifetime. Tough to imagine a massive vision of your life but it is also fun because there are no limits for you. The limits are your beliefs. 

I hope this week’s challenge will be fun for you. 

Give yourself permission to envision what you want in your life and how you want to live for the rest of your life. Focus on the things YOU want. Not what other people want for or from you.  

So what do you want your life to be like? Leave a comment on the latest Instagram post and let me know how you felt when writing or recording this challenge. 

I truly hope this challenge has turned on some awesome wheels for you as a mother. I just want to say, you are doing great mama. You may not think so but you being here and wanting to change how you parent yourself and your children, is the best start into your nurturing journey as a mother and as a gal. 

Much love and high fives.
