Launched in 2015 as a community for working moms, stay at home moms, and fabulous moms from all walks of life, this site is a quickly growing collective of women raising families who also want to grow their happiness, their time and their self love.
If you love your kids, your husband, and your job, but feel overwhelmed by your to-do list, exhausted with no time for yourself, and wishing you could bring more happiness into your daily life, you’ll feel right at home here.
You’ll discover words that will transform your mom living, whether written on the blog, crafted into courses focused on helping you to be the very best you, or beautifully designed at the shop.
How did this become my life?
About 7 years ago, I had the perfect life. I had an awesome, growing career as an economist (yes, I said economist), two little boys who were 15 months and 3 years old, and one big boy who is my amazing husband. I worked all the time and tried to balance my home, my office and my life’s greatest love.
It all looked amazing on Facebook. Except that it wasn’t. Because, I was miserable.
I had totally lost myself. I could not keep up with all the demands on my time and my giant to do list at home and at work. I felt like I was always neglecting someone or something every single minute of every single day. I always felt guilty. I never said no. I never had time for myself.
And, then, one Sunday afternoon I took off my bra and my hand brushed up against a hard lump on my breast. WTF? I discovered my own breast cancer.
My diagnosis took me on a transformative journey of self rediscovery. I figured out what I really wanted from life and how to get it. And, what I wanted, quite simply, was slow, sweet, get-up-with-a-smile-on-your-face happiness.
You will find on this blog and in the resources I offer what I learned and what I am still learning as I journey to happiness as a mom. And, you will discover the skills, tools, methods, changes, and inspiration you can use to bring abundant happiness and joy into your own life.
Let’s start with the InspiredBlog.
The blog is about you as a mom. It isn’t about your kids. It isn’t about your husband. It’s just about you.
What you won’t find. You won’t find parenting tips or hacks. You won’t find marriage or relationship advice. You won’t find tricks to budget your household or recipes to get you freezer cooking. For that kind of information, you’ll love this blogger and also this one.
What you will find. You will find resources and inspiration to encourage your self-love and growth as a mother. You will find tools to improve your own time management and organizational skills so that you carve out time for yourself and live a manageable happy life every day. You will find motivation and actionable steps to live joyful mom lives with awesome mom style.
Where you should start. The best place for you to start is with these five easy steps that will immediately reduce your stress level. To go deeper, begin with cultivating calm into your day from the very beginning with a morning routine that incorporates steps like these.
What’s up with InspiredYou?
The best project you will ever work on is you. #MomTruthBomb
InspiredYou is a section of this site I have dedicated to sharing resources and courses that will guide you to becoming the happiest mom you know. These are tools that either I have used myself that transformed my mom life in amazing ways, or they are ones I have created myself from my own life approaches and am sharing them because I know they can help you change your life, too. Promise.
What’s up with the InspiredShop?
Along the way, I discovered that a single sentence has the power to transform our entire worlds, break open our hearts, or nurture our souls. I call these little sayings #MomTruthBombs.
Whether your day needs a little “Grace Wins,” “Be You Tiful,” or “Because, Champagne,” I love to design #MomTruthBombs into gorgeous, fun décor and inspiration for our homes, offices and lives. You’ll find them all over at the InspiredShop.
Now, before I go, I want to invite you to join my email list community. By signing up (it’s free), you’ll get forever access to my growing Digital Resource Library with downloads like my ebook, workbooks, checklists and more.
You’ll also get my MuseLetter delivered right to your inbox with exclusive content and freebies not on the blog, plus you’ll be the first to know about new opportunities to grow your mom happiness.
