Have you ever felt like you’ve lost your spark in motherhood? What I mean by this is when you feel flat, like you’re going through the daily motions of life, lacking in meaning and purpose. It feels like there’s a bucket over your inner light and it’s barely flickering. You may feel this way when:
- For any number of reasons you have been forced to, or chosen to, give up, or put to the side what lights you up.
- You used to know what lights you up but now you don’t know if or how that fits into your life or if it’s what you want anymore.
- You are going through significant challenges in your life such as tragedy or illness.
When you feel like you’ve lost your spark you might feel downright awful, confused, lost, lacking in confidence, or maybe just have a feeling that you need to tweak something.
In this episode I explore three strategies you can use right away to help find your spark again. They are:
- Ask the hard questions
- Reconnect with your gifts
- Find the courage to take a step
I hope what I share ignites something within you to help you find your spark again. And of course, this is the work I specialise in and am here to support you with, through my Illuminate Group Coaching Program and GLOW Membership.
