Last week I introduced Mom’s New Hierarchy of Needs. I intend that this tool help you navigate the sometimes-confusing waters of balancing your needs with your children.
In the coming weeks I’ll be introducing you to various ways to use this new tool but for now I’d like you to understand a two simple facts.
- It is impossible to be happy when your needs are always shoved to the bottom of your priority list.
- It is possible to enjoy every aspect of your life – the cooking, the schedule keeping, even the laundry – when those tasks get the appropriate priority in your life.
Yes, you heard me! It is possible to be happy, even while you care for the most mundane tasks. You know what makes that possible?
And I’m not talking about the kind of motivation that gets you to drag your bottom to the gym. I’m talking about the feeling that makes you excited to do something.
I’m talking about DESIRE!
Motivation and desire are possible once YOUR needs have been met. This tool can help you transform overwhelm, frustration and resentment into motivation and desire.
Imagine your life being led by desire. I’m talking desire in the midst of laundry, homework, even menu planning!
That sounds good right? RIGHT!
And you know what happens when you desire your life?
You are happy!
And you know what happens when you are happy?
Everyone around you is happy!
So who’s in?
The Shift in Motherhood has begun!!!
