Ignite Your Daily Routine
What excuses do you use to get out of things? Do you really not have time for it or are you afraid to fail? If you never fail, how do you know what success feels like?
Today I have my middle child Jovina with me to discuss facing fears, dealing with emotions and the power of our words. We all have things we want to or should be doing but for one reason or another we haven’t even started. Why is that?
Every excuse has a solution if we just look for it. Maybe you don’t have time to start something new but when it’s important to you, you make the time for it. Stop letting your fears win.

Keep your emotions out of your journey
Separate facts from feelings. Money isn’t stopping you, and time isn’t stopping you either. So why are you still in the same place? Even if you’re only taking baby steps, you’re still in forward motion. As women, we can’t deny that when we want something bad enough, we find a way to get it and make it happen. What are you scared of?
How you speak is everything
What you say and how you speak is everything, including what you say to your kids. Sometimes, especially in a school setting, others have strong opinions on things. Albeit not always wanted opinions but that never stops them from giving them right? And let’s be clear, those opinions are almost never positive, they’re overly judgemental, usually unwelcome and they certainly aren’t paying your bills or helping you to change whatever they’re naysaying. As a result, positive affirmations go a long way for kids. So much goes on at school, I get exhausted listening to their day sometimes. Not just worries in class but also in maintaining friendships. Make sure they feel heard and remind them how incredible they truly are.
Control your emotions
“If you aren’t careful, fear will lead you where you don’t want to go”
Remind yourself that you are a badass and you have survived everything so far. And we all know we’ve been through some heavy stuff. But, understand that our feelings come and go, one moment we’re afraid of rejection and then the smallest thing happens and were like “Bring it on, I got this”. So we cannot let emotions lead us. That’s like allowing someone whose only successful 50% of the time lead our tribe. And in case it slipped our mind, 50% is a failing grade!
In the same aspect, we should be helping our children separate facts from feelings also. Children have a lot of fears. Fears that may seem silly to us but it’s very real for them. For example, my daughter has lost 7 teeth and her 8th tooth is loose. She has never once cried from a tooth being pulled, but the work and tears that lead up to that tooth being pulled is seemingly endless. We work on helping her understand that her fear of pain is greater than the actual act of having it pulled.
