Wow! What a six months it has been.
July without a doubt sucked. Your divorce was finalized and that hit you like a tidal wave which was unfortunate because you weren’t expecting that to happen. It was messy and hard and painful realizing the death of a dream even though it was a decision you made almost a year ago. To see it in print was tough.
But because you are you and you are tough and awesome, you don’t let life get you down for long. There is something about August for you. It’s almost like the new year. School starts again. You know it’s 6 months until your birthday. August is a month that gives you pause and encourages you to lean into your dreams and goals again.
So what did you accomplish over the last 6 months? A LOT! And it’s been amazing!
Health: You splurged all summer on food and booze which was fun no doubt and the break you needed! But starting in August you were right back to it. You jumped back on the Keto bandwagon. You meal planned and prepped every week. You started walking 7,500 steps every day. By the time your birthday rolled around you are at your ideal weight! But more importantly you FEEL good. You can play with the kids. You can run around with them. Mentally and emotionally you feel stronger than ever. It’s amazing!
Mental/Emotional/Healing: You dipped your toes in the dating scene a bit too early last year. But that’s okay. No judgement here. You had good reasons for doing it and you met a couple great guys. But when those situations didn’t work out, it hit you like a train wreck and derailed you. It was painful.
Determined not to go through it like that again, you spent the last 6 months healing your heart and your head. You did the hard work of healing your inner child. Of healing your anxious attachment style.
Most importantly, you fell in love with yourself. You learned your boundaries. You learned about red flags. You learned about what you like and don’t like. You developed cool new hobbies. You learned to enjoy being alone. You are whole all by yourself. And for the first time in your life you feel truly good and truly confident. It was hard but you did the work and it is paying off!
Mothering: Peace and love. Those are two words I would use to describe your family right now. Your home is peaceful. The fighting is really limited. The yelling is non-existent. You took the time to work with the kids on their feelings. They are doing their version of journaling. They are being bucket fillers and encouraging each other.
This started with limiting time on the screens for them and for you. Then you did your mailbox idea where everyone leaves each other kind notes for the day. You also worked on the emotion game, plus your adventure Saturdays and board game Sundays. You really bonded together as a family of four and love being in each other’s company. This by far has been your biggest win over the last 6 months. Great job Mom!
Business: I am so proud of you because you set a goal to post something every single day on social media. Something. And you stuck to it! You also got great at sending emails at least once a week and sometimes 2-3 times a week. You also started a fun daily challenge email and serving women through that. It’s been fun to see their growth and development! You are going live once a week and have a great flow going with your YouTube channel. Your masterclasses that you host twice a month are filled with people.
BUT and this is a big BUT. You didn’t do this all at once. You created systems and processes so you didn’t get overwhelmed. You added one thing at a time and worked on it until you mastered it really well. So breathe easy girlfriend! You didn’t do it all at once!
The result from all the serving you have done? A fully booked coaching practice. You have prospects ready to work with you all the time. You are changing women’s lives and you are fulfilled beyond your wildest dreams. People are asking you to be in their summits and on their podcasts. As a single mom, one of your biggest fears has been money. You don’t even worry about money anymore because you are fully booked. You made it happen!
Money: You stopped being scared of money and started embracing it! You owned your numbers. You worked your butt off to create your 6 months of savings. You are tithing joyfully every month. You have started to pay off your debt. You set a clear budget every month and you stick to it. You review your numbers every week so you know where you stand. You are confident with your money and you are saving for your and the kids’ future.
Even more fun? You made that deposit on the Disney cruise for you and the kids in 2023. So fun!
Jen, it’s been a heck of a 6 months after a fun but tough summer. I am so proud of you. You kicked the stigma around being a broke, single mom. You provided for your kids emotionally and financially. You took care of yourself so you could be a better woman for you, and a better mom, friend, and coach. You put yourself out there and you did the work. It made all the difference in the world and I am so proud of you!
I can’t wait to see what the next 6 months bring!
I love you Jen!
