Mom life. We're surrounded by the message that it's the tired life. The no-time-for-myself life. The hard life. We're supposed to get through it. Survive. Cling on by the last little thread. And at the same time, Carpe Diem - enjoy every moment because it's going to go by so fast.

The typical mom culture sends us all kinds of mixed, typically negative messages. We shouldn't take care of ourselves; it's selfish. The more ragged you run yourself, the bigger your badge of honor. But also, ditch your mom bod and work out. Don't yell. Make more money. Show up. Be better, but not at the expense of time with your kids.

I am putting a hard stop to all of this. While being a mom, running a business, and whatever else you might have going on is hard, it is a lot and there's lots of giving of yourself, the idea that motherhood means living a joyless, nonstop-hustle-with-zero-balance kind of life, where you give and give and give and never take, needs to stop.

I'm on a mission to help you stop counting down the minutes 'til bedtime (at least most days). Stop the mom guilt and shame game. Stop cleaning up after your kids' childhood and start being present for it. I want to help you thrive in work, home, and life. I believe in John 10:10 that we are called to living an abundant life and I know moms are not excluded from that promise.

Join me in conversations about simplicity, some business and life hacks, spirituality and lots of other good stuff that leads to a life of less for the sake of enjoying more in your motherhood. I'm Allie Casazza and this is The Purpose Show.

    Ep 260: An Anxiety Hack For You

    Ep 260: An Anxiety Hack For You

    We go through so many situations and so many traumas and there can be so much anxiety throughout our lives. I know that for me, I have struggled with anxiety for a really long time and even been diagnosed with PTSD. Something that I have come to learn is that I have to be in control of what I think and feel. If I allow my anxiety to come with me into certain situations, what I’ve realized is that it kind of passes through. It comes and it goes. Ultimately, one of the best ways to handle anxiety is to be honest with yourself and think “when this is all over, how do I want to feel?” I hope that today’s anxiety hack helps you along your journey.

    Ep 259: Stop Being So Self-Critical

    Ep 259: Stop Being So Self-Critical

    I don’t think we truly understand the dangers of self-criticism. We are always so focused on what we did terribly instead of the things that we succeeded in or checked off of our list. We are human and sometimes our brains just go there, but what if someone talked to us the way that we talk to ourselves? Friend, I want to encourage you to see yourself for the good. Look past the amount of water you didn’t drink, the mom fails, and the imperfections and let’s encourage ourselves today. The self-criticism has to go.

    In a world where indulging is the norm, we have to be diligent in making sure that we are keeping a balance… where we are living life to the fullest and also among our means.

You physically can’t help yourself. What I want to give you today are ways to truly enjoy pleasure in your life. This doesn’t have to be all sexual. It can be as simple as going on a walk without your phone and headphones. There are so many small ways to keep your life on track and full of purpose. Let’s do it together.

    Ep 256: How I Am Letting It Be Easy in Life Right Now

    The ebb and flow of life can bring so many new challenges. For me and my family, going bi-costal was something that we knew we wanted to do, but there were so many things we saw standing in our way. If you’ve been listening to my podcast for while, you know that a principle of my life that I try to incorporate in every way possible is asking this simple question: How can I make this easier? You would be surprised how many times you find yourself in a situation of building up unnecessary stress where there could be ease. As you listen to today’s episode, I hope that you are challenged to try different ways of making life easy, because let’s face it… when life is easier and you are less stressed, you are the best mom, partner, friend, and version of yourself that you can be.

I just listened to episode 6 and I’m hooked

Then just listened the most recent. I’ve been searching for another podcast for awhile. And I’m excited to drive into more!

Impactful, actionable, every single episode

I found Allie through a social media invite for Declutter Like a Mother about 8 months ago. I’ve since listened to over 130 episodes (starting from the beginning with some newer ones sprinkled in), and I have taken away something positive and impactful from every single episode. Even the episodes I look at and I think, “There is no way this will apply to me.” I am proven wrong. There was one episode that I chose not to finish. One. Out of 130. I am better for this podcast and so is my motherhood and my marriage. Thank you, Allie, for creating this space!
