About Rachael Lou
I am a mom...just like YOU!
It was a long road, but I can confidently say I love what I do both professionally and with my family. When my first son was born I wanted to be everything to him and for him and I was determined to be everything. I worked full time but around his first birthday I realized just how fast time was flying and I worried I was missing too much. Plus I didn't really like my job, it certainly wasn't rewarding to me. I was fortunate enough to be able to stay home with him.
After I was home for about 6 months, I realized I needed more. Something was still missing in my life. I felt guilty that being home with my son wasn't enough. Wasn't this every woman's dream? To be able to have a beautiful little baby and be home with him everyday? It took me awhile to admit it, but I did want more. I felt very guilty but knew deep down that in order for me to be the mom I wanted to be for my son, I needed to do something for myself.
So I started my quest to find my passion. I went back to school for health coaching and I worked with my own life coach. In the process I realized my calling. I wanted to help women learn to take care of their super self after becoming mothers. Too often we become Supermom and put everything, all of our energy into our kids and family. We almost get lost in the role of motherhood. Well, you need love and attention too. And guess what, by giving yourself attention and support you become the supermom you want to be...the one with all the energy and the smile on her face.
So maybe it sounds simple, take some time for yourself. But I can tell you first hand that it is very hard. There will always be 100 reasons why you will want to put yourself at the bottom of the list each day. Kids, diapers, dishes, cooking, work, family, etc....I'm sure your list can go on and on and on. I know mine did. By working with my coach I was slowly able to change my habits and to see the value in making time for myself.
And the best part, not only do I feel 100% happy with myself and get to do what I love, but my kids and family benefit too! They get to enjoy a happy mommy. I get to be the supermom I always wanted to be...the one I created that works best for me! You can do this too and your family will love you even more for it!
I'm a mom to 2 sweet little boys and 1 baby girl. I'm a wife, a daughter, a friend, a sister and a woman with a passion and a mission. And I'm a Supermom!
