A Mess-Up that Looked Like a Win

Yesterday my daughter spilled nail polish across an antique rug and brand new couch.

😭 Not cool. 😠

Luckily, I was able to stay calm without raising my voice. I got her help in cleaning it up, and then I quietly said to her, “I feel really frustrated because you chose to do this project on special furniture, sitting on a special rug, against a brand new couch, without any protection.”

A great example of me nailing it in the momming, amiright? 


Watch this video to see

  • Why this was actually a mess-up and not a win,
  • What I wish I’d done instead, and
  • 2 keys to having this level of integrity and intuition in your parenting too.

The keys I talk about in this video are exactly what my clients and I are learning to do every day, and exactly what I will be uncovering and nurturing in all the moms attending the AWAKEN THE WISE MAMA retreat.

If your inner voice is telling you loud and clear that you need this in your life, reach out today, and let’s figure out exactly what will help you get where you want to go. Maybe it’s the retreat, maybe it’s 1-on-1 work, maybe it’s the sisterhood of my group program - no matter what, I have something perfect for you.

P.S. Early bird pricing for the retreat ends next month. If you have thought that just maaaaayyyyybeeee this might be the most magical, catalyzing, and fun AF thing you could ever do for yourself, but feel scared to pull the trigger - reach out and let’s talk. And, you can learn more about the retreat here.

P.P.S Want to see my ideal response written out? Here it is:

“I felt really frustrated when you chose to do this project in a way that didn’t protect my things because I thought it meant that you didn’t care about the hard work I do to make the house nice or the things that matter to me. I know that’s not really what it means. I will deal with those feelings on my own - they’re not your problem. I hope next time you’ll be more thoughtful about your projects to protect our stuff, not my feelings.”
