Hi, I'm Natalie!
Do you often find yourself thinking you haven't done a good enough job as a mother?
Worry or feel guilty for the choices that your children are making?
Believe that their choices are a reflection of you and your job as a mother?
Think that you should have done something differently?
Wish you could go back and do it all over again?
Don't know where to begin?
As I began my journey in motherhood, I tried hard to create a strong foundation for my children, teach them gospel principles, and set a good example. I felt like it was my job to make sure that they followed the same path that has brought me happiness.
I poured myself into trying to be the best mom I could be and put everything on hold for them. During this time I felt like my children's behaviors including their successes and their failures impacted how I felt about myself and the job that I did as a mother.
I felt like a ping pong ball of emotions. When things were going well I felt great, but when things weren't going well for them. I felt the weight of the world on my shoulders. I felt responsible to make sure they were happy and succeeding.
I was supposed to be a perfect mom.
Perfection was possible.
I could control outcomes.
I was responsible for their happiness.
I had failed.
I realized that all of these beliefs were creating a lot of frustration, worry, guilt, shame, self-judgment, and fear-based parenting.
Something needed to change and it wasn't my children, it was the way I was viewing myself and my efforts as a mother.
This is where life coaching entered and my life started to shift. I began to trust in myself, gain confidence in my role as a mother, and validate my own efforts which led to a healthier relationship with myself and my children.
I understand how you feel and I know that you just want to stop feeling guilt, shame, and frustration. I know that you want to have better relationships with your children and feel more confident in yourself and your role as a mother.
Together we can do this!
My passion is to help moms heal from the heartache that has left them feeling like they haven't done enough.
I believe that the most important work we can do is within our homes and I believe it starts with us!
