Key Points from this Episode:

  • Surviving to Thriving Framework:
    • All the steps are important. There is no time frame on this path. We all will repeat this path over and over throughout our lives.
    • 1. Surviving
      • circumstances, not mindset
    • 2. Re-entry
      • Uncomfortable transition between surviving and trying to get back into real life
    • 3. Normalizing
      • Basic routines
    • 4. Exploring
      • Establishing family culture and finding out what you love
    • 5. Thriving
      • Enjoy the beautiful moments. The seasons that feel like things are going well.
  • Believing things are temporary will help us be more optimistic. These are temporary stages in our lives!
  • Its okay to drop ideas that aren’t serving you. It’s okay to try new things, even if they don’t end up lasting.
  • The act of writing things down helps us remember.

Patreon is the place where we can come together as mothers and intentionally cultivate growth together. Each month you can gain access to printable worksheets that go along with topics in the podcast to help us slow down and make lasting change – not just be inspired for a few days and then move on. These worksheets are what I’m personally working on and talking about with my closest friends – and I want YOU to join us!

Cultivate your growth intentionally with us through two worksheets a month, a online community, and a monthly group video call to share our “big wins” and things we are still working on.
