When I first became a mom, it was the happiest, most overwhelmingly beautiful time in my life.
Joy, upon joy, upon joy.
It was also somewhat terrifying and isolating.
What do I do? Why is she crying? What foods do I try and when? Am I going to break her!?!
I mean, oh my goodness, I made a human! And now I have to care for her!
It was all all I could think about.
I planned, analyzed, read, planned some more, all in between clawing for some sleep, scraping together some meals, and stressing myself out about doing everything wrong.
Feeling like I didn’t know much as a new mother was kind of normal. (Sometimes I feel like I don’t know all that much as a now experienced veteran mom) Eventually things started evening out, I could put a child down for a nap, throw in some laundry, chop up something for dinner, and maybe even sit down for 5 minutes.
I suppose things become manageable enough that I added a couple more kids into the mix.
Much of the mommy years thus far are a blur but one thing has been true in the beginning and is still true now, that I wanted to get this motherhood thing as close to “right” as I can. I want to feed the kids the best foods, stimulate their brains, love them up, support their individuality, push them to explore, take them on adventures, reduce the toxins they are exposed to, fill them with positivity,...
Oh my lord, I’m exhausted just thinking about it.
But we all have big goals as moms, right?
Maybe those goals shift, change, or get replaced with time, experience, and circumstance, but we all have loving intentions of raising happy and healthy humans.
I know that staying the course on those intentions comes with challenges, so hang on. I am about to get to how TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE OUR HEALTHY MOMMY GOAL EASIER!
Now, if you could allow me a second to go off on a mini tangent, I promise it will make sense pretty quickly:
Since becoming a mom, I have started an amazing business that brings me so much joy. After I launched my business all those years ago, I knew I would need a few things to be successful: accountability, support, a place to bounce ideas and receive meaningful and loving feedback.
So, I began a mastermind group for women like me as a way to find and give the support it takes to reach those business goals. It is one of my favorite things and has made a huge difference to me as an entrepreneur. (Keep that in mind as we move forward now.)
Now back to this mommy thing....
Recently, I was speaking with one of the inspiring moms and entrepreneurs that I am lucky enough to call a friend, Saima Yousuf of The Heart Of Art. I realized during our conversation that as a mom, I really wish I had a motherhood version of my business mastermind group. I mean, think about it:
I’ve been rocking this motherhood thing for over a decade now. I still might not have all the answers but I do have the blessing of experience. That experience has helped me realize that motherhood can become an extremely isolating experience loaded with errands, carpooling and stress... and a whole lot more.
But there is a flip side!
Motherhood offers us a rich community experience that we can share with other moms. We can become a part of something bigger, something we do not have to go through alone or even have all the answers to on our own!
Indeed the greatest resource we have as moms is our mom community.
What if you could get together once a week with like-minded moms in a supportive environment?
What if we could talk about topics relevant to moms like us, whether it be about raising a healthy family, making time for self care, short cuts to food shopping and food prep for the week, or any of the millions of other things we could talk about...?
What if we could share ideas, make a plans, stay accountable, and get support?
I don't know about you but I am thinking... AWESOME!
And from this brainstorm I am so pleased to announce the launch of...
Moms Together, a weekly Mommy Mastermind
focused on healthy family life but SO MUCH MORE.
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS:
Moms Together will meet once a week 10am on Sundays at The Heart (a re-envisioning if the space formerly known as The Heart of Art) located at 2374 Nottingham Way.
Moms who could use some supporting with healthy living, but also love to supporting other moms as well. Moms who need new ideas, accountability and a chance to talk through a plan for the coming week.
Moms Together members will reap so many benefits of being part of a supportive community of moms who are building a healthier, happier life.
