How Does Fun Sound?

Ever feel like you're stuck in a big, huge rut and there's just no way out?

Yes.

Like, every day.

Right?

Sometimes we get so used to filling our brain with the same thoughts that it doesn't remember how to think anything else. Thoughts like . . .

"This is hard."

"I don't know."

"I hate this."

"This will never change."

"Ugh!"

We want a different result, but we are sure it isn't possible. And the truth is, with thoughts like that, we are right! Those thoughts lead to feelings like . . .

Inadequacy.

Helplessness.

Frustration.

Hopelessness.

Overwhelm.

But what if it could be different? What if you could feel something like . . .

Excited.

Hopeful.

Motivated.

Happy.

Content.

YOU CAN!

I know what you're thinking. "It's not that simple." And you're right. Kind of. But honestly, it actually is. Kind of.

Our thoughts are actually that powerful!

The problem is we get stuck in a rut, allowing thoughts that lead to feelings that don't really serve us. We end up blaming our circumstances, or our mother-in-law, or our nosy neighbor, or maybe our 2-year-old, for the lousy way we feel. But here's a little secret:

They aren't the problem (darn it!)

Here's a little challenge for you for the next few days. Every time your brain wants to tell you that something seems hard, or that you don't know what to do, or that you simply don't want to do that thing you need to do, replace your thought with this:

How could this be FUN?

Doesn't fun sound, well, fun?

The thing is, when you get busy telling your brain to pivot to a word like fun, when you get curious about what you have ahead of you and you give your brain permission to problem-solve and find a way to make something fun, your brain gets to work being creative. It stops operating from that auto-pilot, primitive mode, and it gets busy creating answers to your question in that logical, thinking part of your brain. Suddenly, you realize that this thing you were dreading could be fun!

Because you can make it fun! You are creative! You are fun! You are the person who can make the dreariest thing--that's right--fun!

So, stop reading and get to it!

You've got this!

Ever wish you were the perfect mom? What does that even mean to you? And what if you are "perfect" already because you are you. And motherhood is messy and crazy, right?

‚ÄčAs a mother of five, I know all about messy! I also know how to find the perfect in it all so I can thrive and be who I want to be.
