Thursday 30th March

Wow what a morning! I only just recently got out of Leila’s school as she had a meltdown this morning over her easter bonnet I haven’t even managed to get dressed yet (yes I went to her school in my pjs and took Amelia in hers and Jesse in a nappy) I came home to get changed and catch the end of yoga at the beach but now Jesse has crashed he is not liking this heat its crazy!! I really wanted to go even for a little but I don’t want to take him out now it just wouldn’t be fair on him and now to top it off Amelia is having a temper tantrum because I asked her to pick up her mess!? How dare I! LOL

But even with all that I am what might seem surprisingly at peace ♡ I guess that’s what happens when you let go of judgement and fear to choose love and joy! Even in challenging times you can choose to feel and see the good. 

My New Moon Magic 

It was not a limiting belief I was being guided to follow the path of my love and joy – parenting and to share my message of finding harmony in yourself while still being a mum. Therefore to focus on my self-love to be the best mum I can be and share my message between it, where I can when I can and it will inspire the people it needs to. This is why this blog may seem so random and my social media seems so scattered! Because I am practicing what I preach as they say ♡ kids are only little for so long I don’t want to miss it and I want to inspire others not to miss out on it too!!

Ask and you will be guided to the answer within youself

Yesterday I posted this “​I am at a cross roads with intentions/manifesting for this new moon 🌙 and I know its a big one so I want to get clear and was hoping someone might be able to help me see if I am facing a limiting belief or being guided by the universe ♡

I was nominated for cbwc young entrepreneur of the year and I’m super excited but also torn that it might not be the time for me I’ve been contemplating where I should put my energy children are only young for so long they grow so fast and I don’t want to miss it by focusing my energy on growing modivational/inspirational business even though I know that it would benefit so many people its all about finding the harmony in parenting of where you are and filling your cup up as a mum first self love which is hard for us mummas to do. I know the best way to spread this is to live my message so I struggle to be willing to give my energy to living my message and working on my business because I feel like I would be unauthentic if I did not fully embrace living my message at this time with my youngest only 9months I feel I either have to release this for now and trust that through living my message my business will slowly grow but at the same time I can see how big it will be if I follow the other messages I can see and signs that I should follow the business that it will grow bigger now so I am at a cross road and unsure if there is a limiting belief and block that I can’t do both and inspire others or if I am being guided to fully embrace just being mum and enjoying that now and not worry about building a biz now??”

I realise now that I needed to post it to get clear and get it out of my head. I already knew the answer! If you have a question put it out there you will be guided to the answer. 

It was not a limiting belief I was being guided to follow the path of my love and joy – parenting and to share my message of finding harmony in yourself while still being a mum.

This is why this blog may seem so random and my social media seems so scattered! Because I am practicing what I preach as they say ♡ there will always be time to tidy up those things later, whereas kids are only little for so long I don’t want to miss out on teaching them through playing with them and watching them grow and I want to inspire others not to miss out on it too!!

If you feel called to connect to yourself and find more harmony in your parenting please follow along my journey and we can do it together it is possible big love ♡♡ Breanna

Lola ♡

I write this sitting here in tears. We lost our puppy Lola today and it has thrown me for a loop and in a big way. I had all these things I wanted to achieve goals and things I wanted to share now I am just flat drained and no longer seem to care about any of it. I know most are thinking but it was just a puppy, but that’s the thing she was a puppy she was young and should have had a full life and now nothing… she doesn’t get any of that and now I keep thinking what’s the point I don’t want to grow and be better I don’t want to work this hard to achieve nothing and make no difference it’s not fair she was only a puppy a tiny baby still, really she could have had such an amazing loving life with us growing up so close in age to Jesse and I couldn’t even give her a peaceful passing she was gone before I even made it to the vet it hurts me that the last moments she had was in pain and scared. Fuck you universe you won you broke me!

5 Minutes 4 Mum

Between the breakfast-time, nap-time, tantrum-time, bath-time, snack-time, play-time, go-the-f&*k-to-sleep-time and all the other special times in the life of being mum, not to mention time juggling work or any of the other zillion demands that come with family life…just where are you meant to find this time for you?

Linda Anderson, is a mother of three, who knows how hard it is to get time for yourself. The needs of others always come before your own and before you know it, there is nothing left for you.

She doesn’t preach the benefits of “me-time” while leaving you to figure it out all by yourself.  She doesn’t ask you for your spare time. Instead, she will show you exactly how to practice self-care – the smart and simple way. 

I am sharing this out of love for my friend Linda and value that Linda can give to your lives ♡ 

She shares the perfect information in her program that I knew I had to share with other mums who struggle to fit self-care into their lives daily. 

Rather then ‘reinvent the wheel’ and create my own program I am letting you know about hers and the value it can give to your life..

Everyone talks about the importance of “me-time”, but nobody tells us how to do it… Now that you’re a mum, the idea of me-time sounds a bit unrealistic, right?

Between the breakfast-time, nap-time, tantrum-time, bath-time, snack-time, play-time, go-the-f&*k-to-sleep-time and all the other special times in the life of being mum, not to mention time juggling work or any of the other zillion demands that come with family life…just where are you meant to find this time for you?

 Find out more information about the love she has put into her program and care in helping mums HERE 

Other mums who signed up for 5 Minutes 4 Mum last round, had struggled with overwhelm, frustration and loss of self. It happens so easily during the relentless responsibility of motherhood. These women simply made a choice to do things differently.

You can make that choice too. Imagine how different your life can be when you are feeling happier, calmer and less overwhelmed. And even better.. It only takes 5 minutes at a time.

Mother-guilt and rushing-woman syndrome are real. But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you’d like to learn how to make time for you, and access your inner calm, 5 Minutes 4 Mum will teach you how!

You can go at your own pace. You can learn in your own time.

Even if you are not ready to start now this is the perfect time to enrol as prices rise next year and enrolment closes very soon.

Once you’ve got the content, you’ve got it forever, you can start when you are ready, so what are you waiting for?

This Mums Going On Holiday

The first thing I am going to start ask myself each day is ‘what do I want to do’ before ‘what needs to be done’

So I decided to take myself on a mental and physical holiday I am going to have fun and do the things I want and need to do! Without constant care of things for others in the house getting done (with those that are old enough and capable that is) as I no longer want to be the one that puts off what they want to do and need to do for themselves because I am too busy tidying up ‘nagging’ and providing everything that needs to be done in a household so others only have to do what they want to do rather then thinking ahead for themselves what needs to be done. *rant over* ok maybe another little one coming up…

It does not mean I won’t be there for them and help, it just means I am not putting all my time, energy and effort into providing to others I am going to start providing for me first then others!

I understand that others have school and work however I am also wanting to establish a business and study so it can’t be just my job to do ALL of the day to day tasks. A family needs to work as a team to work together to have the lifestyle they want.. I need to stop being relied on to do all the mundane tasks. You may be mistaken in thinking I enjoy them I DON’T think ahead, do you need it? Well you better frikkin do it! I mean seriously you can’t always have mummy do it for you or tell you what you need to do, you need to learn to do things for yourself have some independence take initiative and help/work with others for the bigger picture. To make it easy here is a list of some of the things that are left to me that no one seems to notice… 

  1. Wiping tables, benches, spills
  2. Putting things laying around away (rather then stepping on them) and preferably where they belong which would eliminate the next couple…
  3. Finding and putting things back where they belong!
  4. Finding dishes around the house and buting them IN the wash, rinsing dishes, packing dishwasher/unpacking dishwasher and dish rack
  5. Putting toilet rolls in the bin and replacing the toilet paper WTF 
  6. Putting dirty not clean things IN the wash, clearing laundry
  7. Clearing paper crap! PUTTING RUBBISH IN THE BIN!
  8. General cleaning of the bathroom, toilet, laundry, hall
  9. Cleaning the floors (oh and in our house; walls, cupboards, doors, ect) and we live in Cairns please pick up/get rid of bugs seriously don’t leave them there
  10. Cleaning and making the beds (I know I’m weird I love to rest in a sand/dirt free bed)

I am going to set myself of the task of only doing one hour of these things in the morning and one in the afternoon, even better if we all worked together it would take less time and we would have more time for the fun stuff!! Then we wouldn’t miss out on doing activities over the school holidays like we did on the last ones. The above things take away from my time and ability to;

  1. Self care for myself so I am full to do the following..
  2. Establish a business that I am passionate about
  3. Create the lifestyle we want for our family
  4. Play, have fun enjoy life with you
  5. Have energy to take you anywhere let alone anywhere fun
  6. Plan meals and cook/bake (which I actually enjoy doing)
  7. Plan trips, go camping
  8. Get out of the house and do activities

The first thing I am going to start ask myself each day is ‘what do want to do’ before ‘what needs to be done’ then work out the best time to do the 2x hour blocks of mundane tasks and spend the rest of my time doing what I want and need to do for myself ♡ 
How about the other mums out there I know im not alone.. do you need to take a mum holiday? What are some of the things that are left to you that no one else seems to notice?
