It's ok, you can admit it. Sometimes motherhood seems less like the sweetness of a Pamper's commercial and more like a scene out of Jaws. Here at the Mother Like a Boss Podcast, we dive into the good, the bad and the ugly of motherhood and modern homemaking, with honest conversations, tips, strategies and tools.
3 simple ways to uncomplicate goals
We're in the second quarter of the year, a time when most of us realize that those new year's resolutions and goals have fallen by the wayside. It's ok and it happens to all of us.
I want to help you create goals you can stick to, without the complication, long-term commitments or difficult methods. Today, let's talk about 3 simple ways to uncomplicate your goals and make them stick.
Cleaning your house when you hate cleaning
Raise your hand if you hate cleaning?
I get it. Especially with busy mom lives, cleaning just seems like one more thing to do and a never-ending chore. You clean one room and another is getting messy.
One of the pillars here at Mother Like a Boss is simplicity in all things home management. That includes cleaning. In today's episode, I'm giving the low down on how to clean your house (and keep it that way) even if you really hate doing it.
The comparison trap: The good, the bad and the uncomfortable
It's been said that comparison is the thief of joy and it couldn't be more true. Social media has made it easier than ever to gaze at the highlight reels that others post and cause us to compare ourselves constantly to them.
However, comparison isn't always bad. When we use it as a form of inspiration, it can be joyous. The issue is when we compare for the sake of self-judgement.
Today, we're going to talk the good, the bad and the uncomfortable when it comes to the comparison trap.
Small steps create big leaps!
No one gets where they are without taking a million small steps to be there. The same is true in motherhood, in business, working towards your goals, anything. Our children don't learn to run at full speed before they can crawl. Why? Because it's the small steps, the consistency, the learning and mistakes, and follow through where big leaps and full speed ahead success is found.
The importance of a motherhood support system
Motherhood is such a beautiful gift, but let's be really honest, it can also be lonely. Really lonely.
Moms deserve a support system. We deserve a group of other friends and family that cheer us on and encourage us. But where do we start? Let's talk about it.
How to stop the "all or nothing" cycle
If you're a perfectionist and you know it clap your hands 👏🏼 ...and a sea of noise erupts
There is no shame in the perfectionist game, except when there is. The ego creates a world inside your mind when you should be able to do it all, or nothing at all (like O-Town would say) The problem is, we'll never be able to do it all meaning that the only option left is nothing.
A fabulous listen!
I LOVE this podcast. I’ve listened over the last couple of months and Kendra’s advice and inspiration has helped in so many areas of my life and in my family’s daily life. I find her perspectives refreshing and always food for thought. She is practical, refreshing, encouraging and tells it as it is. Like I said, I love her and this podcast and can’t recommend listening enough 😊
