As I run through the checklist of what I feel the urge to share to serve others, I often find myself asking “I am not Superwoman and have no superpowers, I am not doing anything spectacular.”
The truth is I am; every day I get up, I make time to work on my thoughts and what I am capable of creating. I am a wife and a mother and a stepmother, and that takes tremendous strength to stay present in the joy of everyday life when I am always picking up after these humans that share my home. I work from home to bring in some income so that I can be more flexible in my schedule of raising kids and helping my husband on the ranch. Being a ranch wife adds a whole new added strength because I have to very resilient and adaptable to what needs to get accomplished on the ranch for our lively hood but also maintain the house. I also have this hidden strength about loving my animals too. Three house cats, two barn cats, three dogs, 18 chickens, two ducks, three goats, and a herd of horses later I have found comfort in taking time to love on these animals. Maybe the 250 head of cows that we raise has a special place too. Unfortunately, most cows don't appreciate human affection, but I worked through the disappointment.
CAUTION: I am not advising you to get a herd of horses to find comfort, but if you need it, when the retreat camp is up in functioning in the future you can visit and borrow mine.
What I want to share is that in my work as a Skills and Relationship Coach has opened my eyes to my thoughts that were strangling my joy. I know that there are others out there struggling too. I want to tell you that you aren’t alone. The thought’s of “I will never be a good enough wife” have probably shown up in every wife’s dialogue in times of pain. I can let you in on a secret “I have the antidote to this thought pattern.” It doesn’t mean that I now Superwoman, it just means that I have a toolkit and a support system that I have put in place when I feel like I am failing.
However, if you are reading this and that doesn’t apply to you, what do you say? How does this pain show up in your thoughts? I would love to hear from you about how your world looks and what keeps you present today. Please let me help use your story to inspire others.
I want to hear from each of you about what you are searching to find to help you grow in your circumstance. What would bring value? I am sure that there is something in my experiences I could help offer you to bring some joy into your world.
I am glad to get that off my chest... Story of failures and success and failures and success and failures and success... I think that you get it! Don't ever give up on creating the passion and potential that lives inside of you a tangible reality to rock your world.
