๐Ÿ™Œ“When you say ‘yes’ to others, make sure you’re not saying ‘no’ to yourself.” —Paul Coelho

๐Ÿ™ŒThis quote spoke to a phenomenon I see often with the moms who come to see me. They are very busy, doing all the things for all the people in their houses and their community.

๐Ÿ™ŒThey are pretty successful at doing all of it for everyone else. They are great at “OVERFUNCTIONING” (another pattern in the “over/under cycle” that I help people with). They have developed a pattern of knowing exactly what everyone else needs, but they have no idea what they need.

๐Ÿ™ŒLike one of my clients, Danielle (name changed to protect confidentiality). Her kids were growing up and she was a good mom, but she noticed as they began leaving home for college, that she no longer knew what to do with herself.

๐Ÿ™ŒShe had no hobbies, no passions, she didn’t really know who she was or what was next for her. This is a scary time for many moms. It’s a crossroad and sometimes, moms can’t face it and cling tightly to their college kids, which just increases the drama and division in their relationship.

๐Ÿ™Œ"I started coaching with Doreen not knowing what to expect, but really excited to start putting attention into some of my goals. As a mother of four, I didn't miss a beat when it came to their schedules, appointments, and overall life patterns. While doing this for the past seventeen years, I completely lost myself in their life needs. I had little things in my life that needed attention, but didn't know how to get going. Over the next few weeks, I started doing very simple and measurable tasks that added up to goals accomplished!!

๐Ÿ™ŒI’m not sure how, but it felt like magic. Over a period of time, I felt what it tasted like not to feel guilty about caring for myself and had more energy to give to the ones I love.”

๐Ÿ™ŒAre you ready to experience life and break the “Over/Under cycle”?
