How much energy do you spend trying to prove you are good?

Episode #94  is everything I wish I had known before I became a mom.

I was happy. I loved my kids and being a mom. But the anxiety, fatigue, irritability and chronic pain told me there was more going on beneath the surface that needed my attention.

As I learned more about life coaching and how powerful the mind is, I also learned I was carrying around a pissy little inner perfectionist that was constantly pointing out all my flaws. I was constantly under my own self imposed pressure to do better, work harder, and avoid failure and risk, at all costs. It was an exhausting way to live. I looked like I had my act together from the outside, but on the inside, I was spending enormous amounts energy trying to prove my goodness.

Abigail Morgan was one of my favorite life coaching teachers because she seemed to say exactly what my spirit needed to hear. My mind was looking for more ways to prove how hard working I was, but Abigail was always connecting to my spirit, encouraging me to rest, relax, quiet the inner perfectionist and listen to inner wisdom.

Abigail Morgan is a mind-body coach who helps people create well-being through her signature mind-body healing process: The Anamsong Method.

This interview is for all you Supermoms who….

Have a hard work ethic and difficulty relaxing.

Are emotionally sensitive and empathic.

Have chronic pain, autoimmune problems, or any stress related illness.

Get annoyed watching your kids relax.

Work hard to do everything right.

Ignore your own fatigue and emotions, turning into an exploding doormat.

 

I highly encourage you to sign up for Abigail’s FREE  7 Days of Slacker Magic and learn how to get more done by doing less.

I loved the community of other mom’s putting peer pressure on each other to relax, tune into your intuition, and slack off! It was a great contrast the perfectionistic culture of ‘never good enough’ parenting we are surrounded by.

If you are a sensitive soul, it’s imperative that you learn to take off the pressure and use inner wisdom to create what you want.
