064: What I Learned from Childhood about the Importance of Embracing Change | Lisa York

Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end
[Robin Sharma]
 

I don’t think I’ve ever reflected on my own childhood as much as I have since becoming a mum myself. I expect you feel the same.

Your childhood experiences shape and mould the things you do as a mum. You’ve bought your rituals from a time when you were a kid yourself into your own family today.

 

All the fun stuff. Like having pizza and a movie on a Friday night.
But there are also the things that you’ve decided never to do with your own brood. Because you don’t want them to feel the way you did growing up.
I hadn’t realised until I became a mum why I’m so pro change. Why I’m all for taking control of your life. And why I’m a firm believer that you have the power to shape your own future.

 

Turns out, it stems from my own childhood.

This week on High Five Friday, I talk about the importance of embracing change. Because if you don’t, it can cause a whole heap of problems that you didn’t bargain for.

Do you embrace change or do you bury your head in the sand like an ostrich? Does taking steps towards creating a different life fill you with fear?

054: Who am I? Finding Your Lost Identity | Lauren Wills

Who are you? asked the Caterpillar. I hardly know, sir …. I know who I WAS … but I think I must have changed. 
[Lewis Carroll]

Motherhood, as you know, is a hugely transitional time. And in the fog of raising kids, it’s possible to completely loose the sense of who you are in all of this.

But exhale, because research shows that this is completely normal. And it’s OK. Because it’s all part of an evolving process.

You won’t feel lost forever.

This week on High Five Friday, I ask mum of two Lauren Wills, who is a PhD candidate studying the well-being of pre-school mothers, to explain how and why our identity changes when we become a mum.

037: Discover How to Set the Burning Desire in Your Belly Ablaze | Kate Greenstock

If you’re a mother, then you’re already having an impact on the world. Yes indeed-ee.

[Kate Greenstock]

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be discovering how to set the burning desire in your belly ablaze.

As a busy mum with competing demands and limited time you often feel torn and pulled in different directions. You pour out so much of yourself, your emotions, your energy into your family. It can feel like you’re carrying so much, but at the same time being ‘unproductive’ in the world’s eyes, despite wanting to make your mark.

But we’re going to give you another perspective.

My guest today is SuperMum Kate Greenstock

Kate, her husband, and their three children, who are 13, 11 and 7, live near Richmond Park in Greater London where she loves to breathe, cycle and deer stalk. Transitioning from a calling-the-shots career woman, to being a mother with no rule book to follow, proved to be more of a challenge than Kate expected.

But she found a solution, and along with it, her calling to help other mothers who were also feeling lost in motherhood.

At Wild Rubies, Kate helps mums to feel like they’re truly living, rather than just existing; re-discovering themselves and re-imagining their work lives in the process​.

If you’re tired of being seen as just a worker or just a mother, Kate will help you find a way forward. Then you get to be seen by the world full and whole, and in creative technicolour.

Kate gives you permission to ​take the space to breathe ​and​​ ​find the clarity ​needed ​to set your eyes on what’s ahead for you.

I’m so excited to welcome Kate to my show because she will teach you to be more like your children – incomplete, imperfect, curious, daring, outrageous and completely loved – and in doing so, fuel that fire in your belly.

In this episode, you’ll find out:

  • Why every mother is unique and has her own special impact on the world, and how to discover those qualities in yourself
  • How Kate overcame her struggle of moving from a corporate career to motherhood where there is no formula, no costume, nowhere to hide and worst of all, no map or guide
  • Why understanding our own core beliefs and values acts as a foundation stone for the way we are as women and mothers
  • Kate’s opinion of change and how we can better handle change in our lives
  • How as mums we can connect with our instincts to find our ‘thing’
  • How we can find our purpose in a crazy mummy world
  • How we can move away from the old and venture into something that suits us better

 Hope you enjoy todays show!

 

Tell me what you think?

If you have a question or want some advice from a bold mother who can help you birth something brilliant, ask away.

And let us know in the comments. Do you have something humming away in your pocket? Is it time to pull it out and discover its beauty, or do you need to be patient until the time is right?

Kate and I are waiting to hear you comments and help you out as much as possible.

Now, Go Conquer Motherhood!

[Julie Ann Cairns]

untitled-design-4

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be talking about abundance. Often in life, we’re bombarded with messages of scarcity, so much so, you might start to feel the optimism, hope and belief in yourself starting to drain away. But don’t despair, because it is possible to make a shift to the abundance mindset where you stay positive, keep smiling, and have your eyes wide open to all the possibilities, freedom and choice you deserve.

My guest today is SuperMum Julie Ann Cairns

Julie, a former economist for the Reserve Bank of Australia lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband and 12 year old daughter. She’s been working in the finance and wealth-creation industry for over 25 years and has taught more than 10,000 people how to create wealth and trade the international financial markets.

Her financial knowledge, alongside her own personal story of both making, and loosing fortunes, lead her to write, produce and direct her own documentary film called The Abundance Code which we’ll be talking about today.

The Abundance Code brings together over a dozen experts to bring you practical tips and inspiration to stay out of scarcity and keep moving into abundance. To connect and create. To collaborate instead of competing. To find purpose and meaning in your life instead of feeling lost, confused and alone.

I’m so happy to welcome Julie to the show today because she will inspire you to transform yourself and your life, and empower you to live an abundant life free from limiting beliefs.
