    409 - “If you want to create a new self, you first have to stop being the old self.”

    409 - “If you want to create a new self, you first have to stop being the old self.”

    “If you want to create a new self, you first have to stop being the old self.” - Dr. Joe Dispenza

    This is a Throwback Thursday quote that we used last year on the last Thursday of the year as well. It's a great reminder going into this season of change and goal setting that if you want to be, do and have something different; you must first become someone different than who you are right now. And if you become someone different, you must stop being the current you.

    Do you want to see some kind of change in 2023?
    In order to change you have to do something different. To become someone new you have to first stop being the old you.
     
    What is one thing you can STOP doing in order to become the person you want to be?
    Pick 1 small thing. The same as we talk about starting new habits with small actions, you can stop your ineffective actions with small habits. 

    Tune in tomorrow for our last episode of Mama's Daily Dose! Don't worry the 410 episodes will still be here for you to repeat and I'm going to share the secret of how to actually achieve your goal next year and every goal after that!

    408 - Favorite fiction books of 2022

    408 - Favorite fiction books of 2022

    As much as I love learning and growing from nonfiction books, I also love a great story and fiction works as well! And I've learned as much from characters and themes in fiction as I have from nonfiction.

    Also, we all need something light to read! I enjoy reading fiction before bed.

    For all the books I've read this year (and previous years) check out my IG highlights under 2022 books (and there are also highlights for previous years.)

    Top Fiction Books of 2022
    PeachTree Bluff Series by Kristy Woodson Harvey

    Miles High Series by T.L. Swan

    Okay, I know I cheated a bit since two of the books are actually series, but they can be grouped together! 

    Happy Reading!

    406 - Write a letter to future you!

    406 - Write a letter to future you!

    You've been working on the actions and asking yourself questions to bring you to this point today!

    A way to keep track of the years, what you've done, what you've learned and what your dreams and goals are for the future year.

     Do you ever feel like you have so much to do and not enough time?

    You have these wishes and dreams for the future, but they seem so far off?

    You’re so focused on the “what if…” that you just get stuck where you are.

    It’s a fun dance between reflection and looking to the future that will get you on the path to achieving your goals.

    Appreciating and seeing what you have now and how far you’ve come already shows you that you are capable of those big dreams.

    A yearly tradition I implemented to enjoy this dance is writing a letter to my future self at the end of each year. I then pack it away with Holiday decorations to open at the end of the year.

    It’s an awesome keepsake to recount what has happened over the years, who you were and who you want to become.

    Plus it’s pretty fun to see what I was doing 9 years ago!

    Grab a pen and piece of paper and start writing to 2023 you. Here are some prompts below that I use but tailor it to what you want:
    ️What you learned ️ What you loved️ What you overcame️ What you achieved ️ What had a positive impact️ What is different from last January ️ What do you want to stop doing️ What do you want to start doing️ Your 2023 goals
    It’s also a fun activity to do with the kids and teach them about goal setting. I started doing a shorter version of this with my 4.5 year old last year and will be doing it with boys this year (3&5).

    Appreciate how far you’ve come and know that you are capable of moving so far forward as well.

    Write a letter to your future self - 2023 you. You don't have to use my questions, but let future you know what happened this past year and what you are going to do in the coming year.

    Pack it away with your holiday decorations and see how much you've changed next year!

    405 - Quit saying "what did you forget?"

    405 - Quit saying "what did you forget?"

    Instead of saying, "What did you forget?"

    Replace it with, "What did you remember."

    Words are powerful! We put our energy and focus into what we say and believe.

    This idea came from Marisa Peer who is British therapist, author and speaker and focuses on language. She says, "Changing one word will change their (children) life." 

    She tells a story of how she would drop her daughter at school and when she got to the gate she would come running back to her and Marisa would say, "What have your remembered."

    She would then focus on the fact that her daughter remembered before she got into school, instead of chastising her for forgetting something at home.

    What this does is have your and your children focus on remembering instead of forgetting. When you tell yourself that you keep forgetting things or you have a horrible memory, you will focus on that and continue to to prove yourself right.

    Whereas, if you focus on what you've remembered and tell yourself you have a good memory that is where your energy will go.

    You aren't forgetting, you're remembering.
