Day 2 “Mommy Mindset” | The Mommy Devotional

The way our minds are set up, there is no way to experience a true Mommy MakeOver, going from overwhelm to overflow, creating the life you desire, without addressing your mommy mindset!

One of the biggest mindset shifts I’ve had to make as a mom, was in giving myself permission to do what was necessary in order to become the woman I am today. I first had to give myself permission to let go of limiting beliefs, opinions of others and unhealthy narratives that were not in alignment with who I wanted to be, as a mom, a wife, a business owner… As Reese!!

I had to courageously attack and “DEMOLISH”  every deceptive thought head on! Getting super clear about what I’d been telling myself, calling  it out for the whole lie that it is, and replacing it with the truth of who I am and who I’m called to be! I took my lead from 2 Corinthians 10:5 tpt which says “we capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed On”. 

From there I went through a Mental Detox (a process I developed jus for us mommas), which helped me to identify, dismantle and replace every thought that needed to change. The way our minds are set up there is no way to experience a true Mommy MakeOver, going from overwhelm to overflow, creating the life you desire, without addressing your mommy mindset! 

We have to Actively and Intentionally disrupt the thinking that is out of alignment! Periodt. Ain’t nothing passive about it, sis!

So what have you been thinking momma! What have you allowed to become your truth? Does it serve you and who you want to be… as a mom, wife, in business? Are you finally ready to work on your mommy mindset?

Maybe you were like me, and you believed that you wouldn’t be able to do the things you truly desired to do, because you’re now a mom. Listen believe me, I get it. For me, it literally went just like that “I can’t… because I’m a mom”.  And although I didn’t say it out loud often, it was on repeat internally… and that’s the place where is matters the most. 

Girl, I know… too real! So what do you do?

You have to figure out “why”! Why are you telling yourself “I can’t”? Why do you believe that you can’t  have a bomb marriage, or create order in my home, or overcome feelings of overwhelm and mom  guilt? Why do you believe you have to sacrifice time with your family, or for yourself, to work on your business? Why are you struggling to believe it’s possible for you,  as a whole mom, to create harmony and flow in your life?

What limiting and fraudulent narratives have you adopted as your own, that are keeping you stuck? Seriously, take inventory!

Once you identify those limiting beliefs, it is imperative to go through the process of dismantling and replacing! What do you truly desire and what does God’s Word say? What are His true, praiseworthy promises over your life (Phil 4:8)? Who does God say that you are? Write this down and meditate on these things!

You are called!

You are capable!

You are chosen!

You are a bomb mom!

You are worthy of the life you desire!

As the word says, “keep your thoughts continually fixed” on these things (Phil 4:8 TPT)!

The Choice is yours!

I encourage you to spend some time with God, today! As you reflect on today’s verse and listen to today’s worship, what is God saying to you? How does this apply to your journey as a mom? Comment below, I’d  love to hear from you!

Behind the Smile | Let’s talk about it!

I posted these two images on IG and I’m sure many of my followers weren’t sure what the actual emphasis was regarding “How it started vs. how it’s going”

In both pictures, from the outside looking in:

✨I look happy

✨Dreams  is happy, and clearly cared for

✨mom life looks good on me! right?! 

You see social medial will do that to you. Make you look like you have it all together when in reality you are fading fast behind the scenes.

That was me. Behind the smile, in the first image I was struggling. I was struggling with my purpose, and how to “balance” it all… my home, my child, my marriage, my businesses…etc! It was a lot. I was all over the place, I cringed at the word “schedules”, and quite frankly I didn’t think anyone could really relate to my situation. Yes, I had moms who prayed for me, offered amazing advice along the way…and moms I could call on (an often did) when I felt myself spiraling! But even with all of that, I so stuck, and my limiting beliefs were running the show. smh.

I remember distinctly having a conversation with my business accountability partner, telling her all the things “I can’t” do because I’m a mom! Listen, my husband goes out to work all day, my family lives miles away so it’s just me… and I convinced myself that there wasn’t enough time in a day to do anything other than “mom stuff”. Even though I knew I wanted M.O.R.E!!!  I literally talked myself out of the overflow God desired for me, simply because I couldn’t see past my current place of overwhelm. 

You see you can never manifest overflow, when you’re stuck in overwhelm. 

And for me that overwhelm became unbearable! I’ve shared this story several times, but I had a serious mommy moment on my bathroom floor… crying out to God saying “If You don’t take over, I’m not gonna make it”.

It was a true moment of surrender. It was not pretty… but oh my God I’m so thankful!

Since that moment, I’ve been doing the work to get my life in alignment. I had to address and dismantle the limiting beliefs that I’d let guide me in my mom journey, and begin to apply the principles of God’s word to implement systems and strategies  to create not only the harmony I desire in my life as a whole mom, but also to ensure that I never SIT in overwhelm or struggle again!

Will challenges come? Yes! Any mom who says otherwise is a whole lie… lol. We are moms, and things happen that are out of our control. This has nothing to do with perfection, and being in control of everything momma! The perfect mom life doesn’t exist! If it did we wouldn’t need God! What I’m talking about has everything to do with alignment, and learning how to remain in a place of victory throughout the seasons of motherhood! It’s possible, I’m a witness!

I’m super pumped for tomorrow evening! My self and some other mommas are gathering for an intimate training, where I’ll be sharing my proven 5-step process to overcome the overwhelm! This is the very process has transformed not only who I am as a mom, but more importantly who I am as a woman and child of God!

 

❤️I’m confident in my abilities as a whole mom. I can now say without hesitation “I’m a great momma, and I deserve the best”

❤️I’ve given myself permission to unapologetically manifest overflow in my life. No more waiting and wishing, I’m claiming and manifesting EVERYTHING I DESIRE!

❤️I’ve created routines and systems that support the work/life  harmony that is my promise as a mom! My life is in alignment, and the areas of my life from being a wife, business owner… even my wardrobe… all work in together and are in agreement!

❤️I’ve overcome mom guilt, overwhelm and burn out, and have strategies in place to help me to remain in a place of victory. God does not want me to sit in overwhelm, I am His daughter and I am more than a conqueror!

❤️ I am now a top priority in my life, and give of myself from a place of overflow. I make time for me, and hold the space to process, grow, learn, shift, release, receive and feel all that is needed on this journey of being. I love myself, and treat myself with the utmost care, love and respect.

I really don’t have much else to say, except to extend an invitation for you to join us! With just hours left before registration closes, I don’t want you to miss out! So click below to register today!
