I want to start with two things: a statement and a question. First, you are awesome. The fact that you got out of bed this morning. That you are up to great (and little) things. That you are trying to be your best. And awesome because you are here seeking support. Awesome.
Now for a question: What are you CRAVING?
Really feel into that for a moment. When is the last time you gave yourself the luxury of that question? I talk to people everyday who are really good at coping. Getting stuff done. Pushing through. Figuring it out in spite of feeling tired, overwhelmed or exhausted. But I also know that if there is an area of your life that has an ache in it.. A longing. Then that's gets in the way of experiencing what you crave. And that makes life hard.
Allow me to share a small story with you. Imagine a woman. She is an entrepreneur. She is married, has kids and a very busy life. She works out. Tries to eat healthy. She does alot. Sits in committees, volunteers and tries to be a good person. On the outside, she looks happy. On the inside her marriage is unstable and this is super scary for her. She fears breaking up her family, breaking her heart and she fears the conversation about this. She fears that if something doesn't give soon, she might not have the strength to be any good to anybody. Not her clients. Not her family and definitely not herself. But she doesn't know what to do. Not knowing, she soldiers on hoping for a miracle (or at least a sign if you please!)
Can you relate? I am not a miracle coach with a magic wand. But I do know a lot about trying to grow a business when you feel stunted. Trying to get it all done from a place of depletion is not fun but what if there was another way? A way where you didn't have to keep coping. A way where your life could be easy-er without having to do it all from a place of sheer willpower. A way where you succeeded but not at the expense of your sleep, your marriage, your family or your fun. Can you imagine some simplicity or ease or joy?
I believe that pretending to be happy is the real killer of happiness. Pretending is not the same as actually being happy. You can only fake it so long before the cracks appear. If you are ready to get back on track, I'd love to help.
