In an instant—everything changed.
Brock was out of town, I had a clogged milk duct, and Ford was going through a sleep regression. I was rocking him trying to get him to nap for the 20th time that day and tears were streaming down my face. “I’m not cut out for this,” I thought to myself. When Brock finally came home I was a wreck. I just lost it. I knew that so many people went through this but why did I feel so alone? I never wanted to feel that way again or I at least wanted to recover quickly from feeling that way. I wanted to help other moms avoid this feeing too in any way that I could. This wasn’t an option, it was a calling. An unshakable feeling down to the very last cell in my body that I had to share my passion for gratitude with the world. Cue the gratitude journal and the grateful mama course. I created these to help mamas everywhere find that gratitude in hard times and bring joy back into motherhood.
I had no idea, at that moment, that my life would change forever. Or even more shockingly, just how much it would change… I started implementing gratitude practices into my life daily and it has changed my life for the better. Motherhood is still hard don’t get me wrong, but now it is easier to appreciate the good that exists among the hard. I wanted to take what I’ve learned and share it with my fellow strugglin’ mamas out there. You can find that joy again through taking the grateful mama course coming August 1st!
I hope you guys can relate to how I became a grateful mama and come along on this journey with me because don’t forget we are all in this together!
