It infuriates me that the current model for entrepreneurship omits one critical component…
It scares me that a woman, whether she’s self-employed or a corporate employee, believes she must sacrifice this one thing, at least for a while, so she can design the life she desires. That one thing?
HER EMOTIONAL WELLNESS.
It saddens me that mothers, whether new or experienced, believe they can get this feeling by occasionally going to a spa, or a retreat, but can’t feel this way consistently. What way?
According to the National Wellness Institute, emotional wellness refers to awareness, sensitivity, and acceptance of feelings and the ability to successfully express and manage one’s feelings.
An emotionally well person will be able to arrive at personal choices and decisions based upon the synthesis of feelings, thoughts, philosophies, and behavior.
My interpretation of that thorough definition is this: An emotionally well person knows how to express, trust, and prioritize herself.
Many women, mothers, and entrepreneurs struggle to hear their own internal voices because we are busy trying to design better versions of our current lives.
We need more money, more time, more support, more resources, more motivation. Right?
I challenge that. So should you.
Women who give big (the way you and I constantly do) have to take back our sense of wellness, and reclaim our authentic voices in our own lives. We can’t keep putting everyone and everything—our own loved ones and professional pursuits included—in front of ourselves. That is, as you well know, …
NOT EMOTIONALLY SUSTAINABLE.
I’ve been there, and I help women transition out of that space through self-exploration and radical self-expression.
This is personal. And it’s business.
It’s for ALL of her.
And it’s the driving force behind the WHY of this work I do and love.
