How to embody who you want to be as a mom with Binu Dhindsa
Welcome back to another episode of Braving the Mountain Podcast . I'm so excited about my conversation with my friend, Binu Dhindsa.
Binu is a Life and Spiritual coach that I met in a Mastermind that we were both in a few years ago and with us being in two different phases of life, we thought it would be fun to talk about how to be the mom you want to be no matter where you are at.
As a mom of three, Binu's journey is one of transformation, from feeling overwhelmed to gaining greater self-awareness and building a thriving coaching business with kids in tow.
Binu offers insights into her journey and the pivotal role inner work played in her life. She talks about the importance of catching oneself in moments of stress or frustration and how she used a fun strategy of "channeling her inner Karen" to embody a calmer version of herself.
She highlights the power of stepping away from the chaos for a moment of reflection and self-compassion.
Binu's why has shifted over the years, aligning with the goal of teaching her children the skills needed for creating great relationships.
Remember, it all begins with that very first step + opening a journal and pouring out your thoughts can be a powerful way to start.

What expectations are you placing on the relationships in your life?
Today we are talking about the expectations we put on our relationships.
Lately, I've been dealing with some family issues, and it got me thinking about the boundaries and expectations I've been silently imposing on people in my life. This applies to all kinds of relationships: with my mom, my husband, and even my kids.
I used to have these unspoken expectations just because of the nature of the relationship. But when those expectations weren't met, I’d feel the resentment which I began to realize isn’t fair to them. It took me a while to realize this and I began setting some life-giving boundaries.
So, think about your relationships, especially with close family members…
Where are you sacrificing your needs or expecting others to fulfill unspoken expectations?
Are these expectations communicated?
You don't have to abandon yourself for others. You get to meet your needs and set boundaries in a way that feels good to you.
Challenge yourself to have those difficult conversations and release unrealistic expectations. It's not always easy, but there are options.
You can redefine your relationships and choose what's best for you and your family.
Remember, you're never stuck and you always have choices.

What kind of mom do you want to be?
Today I’m talking about deciding who you want to be as a mom and how to make it happen. When I became a mom, I was lost and didn’t know who I was anymore.
I knew what I didn't want to do, like yelling and feeling overwhelmed, but I was stuck in those habits not knowing how to get out.
Trying to change while feeling shame is really hard. If you're feeling shame right now, you're not alone. I've yelled at my kids too, but it doesn't happen often anymore.
If you're like me, maybe you snap and then feel bad about it?
If you really think about it, what kind of mom do you want to be? Because you can make different choices. You can be the mom you want to be now. It's all about deciding and asking yourself how would that version of you show up today?

Taking Inspired Action in Your Life and Business... the Being and Doing
Welcome back to another episode of 'Braving the Mountain Podcast.' In this episode, I chat about a recent conversation I had with my friend Andrea Crisp.
I talk about the masculine and feminine energies + its impact on personal growth and showing up fully as ourselves.
I talk about the pressures of conforming to societal expectations and the empowering journey toward just being yourself.
I also give insight about the importance of following your intuition + taking inspired action that feels aligned for you.
This episode is about how important self-trust + how important letting go of the things society deems normal is so that you can just be YOU!
It’s about taking action in both the "being" and "doing."
What if you decide that you don't have to put yourself second?
In today’s episode, we're talking about making the decision to take back your power and that you don't have to keep putting yourself second.
Lately I’ve come to learn that it’s actually ok to have some non-negotiables when it comes to your relationship with your partner. You can even have them for all relationships in your life if you choose.
But the one thing I want to pass onto my kids, is the fact that they can decide what they are and aren’t available for in any relationship they may have. I mean, we truly do get to choose how we are treated.
This is something that was never really talked about when I was a teenager or growing up. And sometimes we don’t always see the best relationships modeled to us by our parents or those around us.
We get to teach our kids to draw that line, set those boundaries, and truly create a life they enjoy while also taking care of themselves.
You don't have to put yourself second to please anyone.
And the hard part: we can't just say it to our kids; we've got to lead by example. Are we constantly putting ourselves on the back burner? That sends a powerful message because remember, actions do indeed speak louder than words.
In your relationship, where are you putting yourself second? It's about taking accountability, recognizing where you abandoned yourself. You now get to become the example for your kids that change is possible.
So, remember, don't pick up everybody else's stones. You'll face resistance, especially from that ego of yours. But it's all part of the journey. Next week, we're talking about the ego and how it plays into all of this. So, stay tuned for that, and start making those shifts in your life. You've got this!

Trust yourself... you have the power within you
Welcome back to another Mom Pep talk! Today I'm chatting all about trusting yourself, and unlocking the power that's already inside you.
It's like when we're chasing new goals in life, we often feel nervous, right? But here's the thing, we get to trust ourselves enough to make it all happen.
Self-trust is the secret to creating the life you love. A good coach isn’t here to be your crutch but instead your guide. I’m here to help you make decisions, connect with your inner power, and not just hand you a list of steps to follow.
Now, the version of you that got you here won't get you where you want to be. There will be times where you need to let go of the old and step into the new you. Yes,it will be tough, but it's how you get where you wanna be. You need to own your power.
Trust yourself and stop looking for someone to give you the answers and find support that helps you find your inner strength. I offer The Breathwork Method as the way for you to tap in and find the answers you are searching for within yourself.
When you lean into your inner power instead of seeking external solutions, amazing things happen.
