My Story

IMG_6393.JPG

I'm Tesse, and I'm a Millennial Mom, golfer's wife, chocolate lover, Harry Potter fan, and Life Coach. It is a huge passion of mine to help moms rediscover their confidence and find the joy in motherhood. 

Because I know what it's like to struggle. And it sucks.

I'm talking about the Mommy Rut.

You know it, don't you? It's the feeling of overwhelm, of anxiety of not knowing what you need to do to take care of this tiny human being, of not feeling like yourself, of feeling out of control.

I know it too.

It wasn't that long ago that my little was a newborn. I literally didn't leave the house for a month. I was afraid to take her outside, and I had no idea what to do with a newborn.

I mean, they sent me home with a baby?!

But, eventually I worked up the courage to leave the house and conquered that. But then more anxiety poured on. Was I doing this right? How do I take care of myself while taking care of my family?

Then there was the overwhelm.

The house was a mess.

There was a giant pile of dishes, constantly.

My hubby and I weren't connecting.

We were struggling financially.

Was I even doing this mom thing right??

I felt the weight of the world on my shoulders. Every little thing set me off. I felt out of control. Anxious. Like I was aimlessly wandering in circles.

Then one night, I couldn't take anymore. I jumped out of bed, ran to the living room, and cried. 

I had to release all of the intense pressure I had put on myself. It had to come out.

Then my little walked into the room and brought me a tissue.

"Don't be sad, Mommy," she said quietly and put her hand on my shoulder.

It was that moment when I decided things had to change. I never wanted her to see me like that, out of control, again.

I wanted her to see me as a strong, confident woman and the role model she deserves.

Don't get me wrong, it's ok to show vulnerability in front of your kids, but I felt weak and small in that moment, and I want her to know what a powerful and fulfilled woman looks like.

So I picked myself up and got to work.

I focused on what parts of myself needed to change, and my mindset changed.

First, I stopped worrying as much about the house. That was a lower priority then my emotions. So I worked on positive thinking, gratitude, and finding who I was at the core.

And once I figured out who I was, and I grew to like that person, then everything else seemed so much better.

Once I took the pressure off myself when there was a dirty dish or a toy left out, it made it easier to clean because I wasn't as anxious about it.

My relationship got better with my hubby ( he even brought me flowers!)

And guess what, I became a better mom. For real.

I know what you are going through, and I know it's not easy. 

I didn't have a life coach, and it took me months to figure it out on my own. Let me help you get to being a joyful mom quicker.

With someone in your corner, who has been there, who you can truly talk to, you can make that change so much faster.

You can feel happier, fulfilled, confident, and joyous.

You can get your family back on its feet.

Let's do this.
