You can be a great mom and pursue your purpose and take care of yourself.
It is not an impossible dream.
You love being a mom. It is the best and the hardest and the most rewarding thing you have ever done.
But it’s a little more complex than that because – if you’re really being honest – you also want something more.
You crave concrete accomplishments outside of motherhood. You want to be intellectually and creatively stimulated. You want to find your purpose so you can contribute to the world and you want to show your children what’s possible when you go after your dreams.
You want to find fulfillment outside of motherhood so you can find yourself again.
And even if you don’t know exactly what your dream or your purpose is right now, you know you need to do something different. Because if you don’t, you’ll feel like you’ve lost yourself to motherhood. And you’re tired of feeling lost.
I’m Ashley Gartland and I help moms find fulfillment beyond motherhood – and do it in a way that doesn’t add to their stress or overwhelm. Because I know you can be the kind of mom you want to be AND lead a balanced life as an inspiring woman too.
The mothers I work with are strong accomplished women who want to define themselves outside of motherhood. But they keep spinning because they don’t think it’s the right time to go after their dreams. Or because they’re afraid they're not good enough. Or because they have trouble prioritizing themselves without drowning in mom guilt.
The truth is there is never going to be a perfect time to prioritize you and pursue your purpose. There will always be something that needs doing or someone who needs your attention. Life as a mom is busy that way. But if you keep waiting for your time to come, you’re taking the risk that it never will.
It’s time to stop waiting.
It’s time to believe that your time is now.
