Mental healthSocial Media is filled with influencers. Fitness, Self-Love, Motivational influencers that post all types of motivation for us throughout the day. I’ve signed up for several of these self-love challenges before and they definitely taught me a lot. But I’ve had a hard time finding people that can come together to talk about their Mental Health. So, I’ve decided to create a “Check-In With Your Heart” 7 Day Challenge. I wanted something intimate where people felt comfortable, supported and free to be themselves and talk about real life problems because that what Mental Illness is: a real-life problem that gets worst if you don’t have support or people to talk too.

Happy Body & LifeThis challenge will consist of 10 people (3 spots left!). Together, we will explore topics like Depression, Anxiety, Self-Care, Self-Love, Recognizing our triggers, resilience, strength, awareness and many other topics that will help us have breakthroughs in our Mental Illness journey. A private Facebook group is where most of our discussion and work will be done in so those that sign up for the challenge will be invited to the private facebook support group.

Throughout the week, printables will be available. Videos on the lesson for that day and an interactive quote or topic will be posted where each member can share what they’re comfortable sharing. You’ll have a chance to meet people from all around the world since this is a virtual challenge and it’s a great opportunity to meet someone new, learn something new and most importantly– take a week to dedicate to yourself. Allow yourself to grow, to go outside your comfort zone, to check-in with your Mental Health and to allow yourself to break through some of those fears and hardships that have been weighing heavy on you lately.

You are not alone and this challenge was designed to show people that. If you are interested in signing up, please DM me on my Instagram here:

Social Media Can Filter Only A Small Part of Motherhood

Only on social media can I create the illusion that these precious boys are such well-behaved Angels 100% of the time. These pictures capture the beauty of childhood.  The truth is that only filters or the right angle of a picture will cover up my messy sheet on the bed, the pile of laundry in the corner and some dishes in the sink or hide the fact I just dealt with an hour long meltdown with my 6-year-old right before we snapped this shot

The truth is that motherhood is friggin hard; It’s not always smiling and snuggles & in those hard moments, I felt alone for a long time. I compared myself to everyone, especially the “InstaMoms” that capture only the glitz and glamour of motherhood. I wanted to be the “old me” who felt good about herself. But then I realized I LOVED who I was evolving into through motherhood

If your house doesn’t look like Pinterest, you’re still a good mom. And you are not failing because you didn’t get to make homemade lunches every day or because you didn’t send the kids to school in Cashmere sweaters. You are still a good mom. To our little ones, we’re the world; we are more than enough. And part of being a good mom is making sure you’re HAPPY because a happy mom makes a happy baby. 

 So as we honor the mothers in our lives this weekend, take a minute to realize what a badass mom YOU are.

If I’ve learned anything, it’s this belief that Mothers are the heart and soul in a family; If the heart isn’t taking care of herself than everything else will suffer.  So take the time to care for yourself. Take the idea of motherhood perfection and throw it out the window. Being in love with our children and feeling so grateful to be their parent can coexist with the reality that it’s also really, really hard. Allow yourself to be frustrated and “over the moon” in love with your child. Don’t shame yourself for having these feelings. It’s a reality. It’s a common theme that we all feel, but we don’t talk enough about. Take care of your mental health and don’t hold on to the guilt that comes naturally in the hard moments of parenting. In reality, we feel guilty because we love THAT much. Lean into that feeling. 

 

199e1fb32250bf0c455592a07c5feb15Different roads can lead to the same destination. We can parent 100 different ways & still raise happy, respectful, successful children. Don’t compare yourself to the InstaMoms. You keep rocking that messy hair bun, yoga pants and that heart of gold. You keep trying your best & keep doing what makes you happy so that you can keep shining and making this world a better place.

Wishing all of you wonderful and powerful women an (early) Happy Mothers Day!cropped-adamire2.jpg
