Session: Heroine Life Tools: Back to Basics
Shifting into motherhood happens abruptly. It isn't really a shift...it's more like a collision. Overnight your YOU becomes YOU + MOM + an entirely new world to navigate. It brings confusion, gratitude, happiness, sadness, gobs of emotions, sacrifice, responsibility, more sacrifice, more emotions, and more responsibilities. It makes complete sense that we lose ourselves as our pre-mom life collides head-on with our mom life.
As the demands of life increased exponentially, I began to feel I was losing myself.... I needed some simple and easy tools I could utilize each day that would allow me to recognize ME and all the things I needed to refuel. I was an amazing woman doing amazing things before kids and I knew I needed to feel that again...figuring out how was key for my sanity. As my life and journey evolves, and layers are continuously added, I use these Heroine Life tools as a reminder of who I am, what I love and what makes me, ME! Join me in this 45-minute, eye-opening discussion where we will break down your basic needs and dive into some Heroine Life tools. You will discover themes, goals and connections that can serve as a constant support during your wild motherhood journey and beyond.
About Heather: I am a wife, mother, educator and mom-prenuer. I had a chaotic upbringing in North Carolina and moved to California not knowing a single soul when I was 23. I created a full, fun and adventurous life for myself. In 2007, as a competitive athlete, I was diagnosed with Type-1 Diabetes. My world was turned upside down. As I began to put the pieces back together I opened my first fitness studio, met my husband and had my first little girl all within 2 years. Today I own and operate Hats For Heroines, a company dedicated to empowering and uplifting women, I co-own The Fit Mill in Carlsbad, CA, and I am a full-time middle school Science Teacher. I live in Charlotte, North Carolina with my incredibly supportive husband and my 2 amazing daughters, Kaia (6) and Leila (4). I am driven by loving and supporting others.
What does STRONG mean to you?
I used to think strong meant endurance races. If I wasn't swimming, biking or running, I didn't feel like I was strong or even "enough." Today, I know that is not true. Strong is being open, vulnerable, and willing to admit my shortcomings. It means being able to empower others to be compassionate towards themselves and realizing we are all in this together.
