You Can’t Do It Alone

Happy May! Happy Mother’s Day!

This is a time to celebrate. This is a time to honor all of the conscious energy (and sometimes not so conscious energy), love, spirit, commitment, passion and intention you bring to your kids, family, and your life as a mom. You are amazing!!

And one thing is for sure. Not one of us can do it (sanely) alone!

This was highlighted for me this month. I’m fine, but I had a scare!  I went for my annual mammogram and they saw an irregularity on one breast. I had to wait for almost three weeks to find out that I am perfectly healthy!

It was almost 3 weeks of intermittent dark, scary “I’m going to die” depression moments.  Almost 3 weeks of drinking in every amazing and beautiful breath, smile, touch, or word that came from my kids. Almost 3 weeks of tapping into all of my coaching tools that I possibly could (Essences, HeartTruth, BodyTruth, Future Self, Ogre Release and Replace, mantras, breathing and being super ubber present!).

Using all of these tools helped to keep me grounded, sane and away from the scary Ogres (limiting thoughts and beliefs) that were just waiting to drown me in gloom and doom. And, there was one tool that was possibly even more powerful than all of these – a huge gift for me – reaching out for support!

We ALL have moments of fear, sadness, and/or anxiety in our lives – especially as moms! In these moments it can be feel scary to reach out to friends and family for support. It can be hard to show people who normally think we have it all together (at least for the most part) our fear, vulnerability, raw tears, bad breath, wobbliness, and uncertainty.

And, it is exactly this revealing that gets us what we most desire and are craving – more support, connection, love, and being seen fully for who we really are!

So, this month share…

4 You Can’t Do It Alone Tips

  1. Name it. What is a success or challenge that you are faced with right now in your life?  It can be something big or little.  If sharing and reaching out to others is challenging or new for you, know that it’s okay to start with a small share, for practice. Work yourself up to bigger and bigger shares over time.
  2. What do you want? Get clear about what kind of support you want. The clearer you about what you want, the more likely you are to get it. I wanted people to be aware of what I was going through because I was distracted by it and I wanted people to send me healthy, strong thoughts, love, and energy. You might want practical support like someone to watch your kids, cook, go grocery shopping, or someone just lend an ear to listen.
  3. Share! There are so many ways to reach out today. In person, phone, email, text, Facebook, Skype, etc. I sat in a friend’s kitchen with non-stop tears rolling down my cheeks as she shared her inspiring health story and I shared my love and fears. Others I emailed. Others I texted. In fact, the final results I texted out to 15 people all at once. It was so easy to stay connected! So, be creative and find the ways that work for you and for each person you want to reach out to.
  4. Be Realistic. Don’t expect others to take away your pain. No one can do that for you. You’ve got to feel it and move through your own journey in your own way, on your own time.  And reaching out along the way can bring you incredible inspiration, strength, support, love, blessings, and simply the most amazing gift of knowing you are not alone!

So this month reach out. Be real. Be YOU! Love and support is all around.

Who are you going to reach out to today and this month?  What are you going to share?

Happy Mother’s Day, Beautiful Mama! You are not alone!

Much Peace and Love,

Julie

    Great video! I tend to not want to share so this was a good reminder of the importance of inviting others to support me and celebrate with me too. And also love the part about being realistic. You rock!

    Awesome video. I like because it is realistic. No one can do that for you. You’ve got to feel it and move through your own journey in your own way, on your own time. thanks for sharing us.
