Supermom Kryptonite: Starting Mindfulness
Using the words “I can’t”.
“I could never to take 2 nights away”
“I could never send my 9 year old to summer camp.”
“It’s my daughter’s soccer game and I can’t miss that.”
Try to eliminate the words “I can’t” from your vocabulary. When we say “I can’t,” we give away our power and authority over our life. Consequently, this makes us feel helpless and powerless.
Supermom Power Boost: Mindfulness as a Habit
Switch “I can’t” to “I am choosing”.
“I am choosing not to go on vacation by myself.”
“I’m choosing not to send my child to summer camp.”
“I’m choosing not to miss my daughter’s soccer game.”
This small change will get you back in the driver’s seat of your life. There is a cost to thinking “I can’t do what I want”. Reminding yourself of how much power you actually have is a huge boost of power.
