You Are the Solution to Your Problems

You Are the Solution to Your Problems

You Are the Solution, Believe that You Are!

You are having a problem in your life. Maybe it’s weight loss or lack of time; the point is there is a frustration in your life that you find challenging right now. As you think about how to solve this problem, you start racking your brain trying to figure out who to reach out to resolve this issue. If your problem is weight loss, you decide to find a trainer to get you to your ideal weight. Or, you don't have enough time to get everything you need done, so you look for a program that will help you add more time to your day.

You have these resources in your hand, and you are excited to get started. You go to the trainer twice a week, then once a week and then you are paying for trainer services you never use. Or, you spent an entire day planning out your new schedule because this time-saving program is the program that will help you achieve your goals and a month later you forget what the name of the program is.

5 Ways to Invest in Yourself as a Stay at Home Mom

The Label  "Stay at Home Mom" Does Not Define You.  

There is so much stigma surrounding the label of Stay at Home Mom (SAHM). Our society has so much to say about women in this role and often it isn't positive.

I was a SAHM for the first year of my son's life. At the time, I felt forced into the position, having just been laid off and going through Post-Partum Anxiety. Prior to the year with my son, I never considered myself the "kind" of woman that would stay home. I realize now I was placing judgement on a very difficult and demanding role that women all around the world take on every day.  There is no "kind" of woman that chooses to be SAHM or WAHM or Working Mom or the many other titles we love to label ourselves with. We are all women that make choices that are in the best interest of our families.
