Are you in the “messy middle” of motherhood trying to thrive when some days you feel like you’re barely surviving?
Some people say “in the thick of it” or “in the trenches” of motherhood. It’s all the same.
Beginnings and endings are relatively brief compared to the amount of time we spend in the middle of things if you really think about it.
And motherhood is no exception.
Our precious children are born and there’s the newness and excitement and fear all at the same time.
But it doesn’t take long before you start to find your rhythms.
And it starts to get messy.
You try to figure things out… and you mess up.
And you clean up messes. Again. And again. And again.
You might feel like this season will never end. Maybe you’ve said to yourself:
She’ll never sleep through the night.
He’ll never be potty trained.
They’ll never eat vegetables.
THAT’S the middle, friend!
My conversation with guest Becca Starr sparked the idea for me to create what I like to call the “messy middle series” of episodes this month.
Just in time for the summer (the middle of the year), I’m talking to three mamas who are talking about topics that will help you thrive in the messy middle of your motherhood journey.
In this episode, I talk with my guest, Becca Starr, about how to thrive, not just survive in the messy middle of motherhood.
Becca is a wife, mom of two, and Master Certified life coach with a strong focus on goal success. as well as the creator of The BITMOR Method.
She helps you get crystal clear on your priorities, take Micro-Actions that cause powerful shifts, and embrace your purpose and intuition.
