|When I survey parents, their number one desire is to have more bandwidth. They’re stretched thin and wish they could be more proactive and less reactive. And the holidays just make it worse. Can you relate?
I can! I have walked this path, and I’m happy to report that these days, I rarely feel stretched so thin that I’m overwhelmed and reactive. Even on the days when my daughter is tough, I’m able to be patient and kind, no matter how I’m feeling inside.
It wasn’t always this way. I remember clearly when work and family needs were more than I could meet – yet I still tried! I sacrificed my sanity in an effort to provide and care give, and it didn’t work. Instead, I got angry and resentful. Have you been there, too?
I can tell you from experience what didn’t work: trying harder, waiting for things to get better, blaming difficult personalities, and everyone retreating to their corners.
What helped me, and what has helped my clients, is better BOUNDARIES skills.
With the holidays coming up, but not here yet, you might have some time and energy for being proactive. You might have a sense of just how challenging it will be to have healthy boundaries this winter, navigating the family dynamics.
Why not start working on peaceful holidays now?
Join us for the Boundaries and Consent Bootcamp. It was a great success last spring, and I’m offering it again! This is a 3 month online course, November – January, which will support you with shifting out of reactivity this holiday season.
Here’s what’s included:
“My life will never be the same after going through this program.” Watch Ashlyn’s video to hear how the course changed things for her. I want that for you, too!
You’re invited to get the guidance and support you need to navigate the holidays with grace.
In support of you,
