Motherhood doesn't have to be so dang difficult all the time! My mission is to take you from "I'm counting the minutes till bedtime" to "I love this sweet little life of mine!"
My Introduction To Simplicity
started with a normal move into our new home not even 10 miles from our previous house. My oldest was starting Kindergarten and I was excited to join our new community and embark on new adventures.
Until...moving became a complete nightmare. We loaded up a 26 ft. Uhaul truck with “stuff” prior to the movers arriving. The day the movers arrived, it took them an additional 6 hours to move our remaining belongings.
I remember my husband asking, “How does one family have all of this STUFF?!” And honestly, he was right. How did we have all of this stuff? Why was this stuff taking up precious time and space if it didn’t have that much meaning to begin with?
As I reflected on our mountains of “stuff”, I started to realize how this was affecting the way we live and how I parent my children. I was constantly moving to keep up with housework and when I didn’t the house and the day would collapse. I had become the mom I never wanted to be... counting how many hours I had of peace and quiet before morning came and I had to start over.
I Took Charge Of Overwhelm And Anxiety
What I did next set my life on a new course, it changed everything. I went into the playroom making piles - keep, trash, donate. I got rid of every single toy that I felt wasn’t benefiting my kids.
I took my purging into other areas of the house - the dishes, the clothes, the drawers and cupboards - and our whole home life continued to transform. I was spending less than half my time managing my house, I was playing with my kids, my marriage even improved because I wasn’t a cranky maniac anymore. Life felt lighter, intentional, and I was no longer “getting through it”.
This was abundant life in motherhood; I could feel it.
I believe mothers need minimalism more than anyone else. Minimalism is less cleaning, it’s the joy of always being ready for company to drop by without stressing out, it’s more free time to focus on your priorities, it’s being able to be a mom who plays rather than a mom who’s always cleaning up, it’s being a happier person.
If you’re feeling ready to make some of the changes that led me to this place of thriving in motherhood and removing myself from survival mode, I’ve put together some free resources to help you. Thanks for being here. I'm excited to see you succeed. This is just the beginning!
