Are we ever…the Mothers of our own re-invention!

As Mothers and generally as women, we are inherently creative.

To that end, we are not only powerful enough to create and birth life but birth our own re-inventions, sometimes over and over and over again.

Think back on your life…you've done that.

We are so much more powerful than we give ourselves credit for.

And it's this power that grows exponentially when we feel supported and receive as much as we give. I feel strongly about asking for what we need and want. How else do we move forward? We can do a lot but we can't do it all ourselves.

As with many of us, however, I learned to ask for what I need, in business / life through a process of discovery (trips/falls/bumps/bruises).

We must ask for what we want in order to continue moving forward toward the highest version of ourselves.

Think of what's burning in you to create, change or birth?

What is the highest version of your business and why haven't you done it yet?

What could you ask for that would allow you to step into that vision gracefully?

Everything else is already inside of you. It's our birthright to be fully-expressed, to create and re-invent ourselves to increase our happiness.

If you need support, seize it.

There are loads of coaches and support out there.

If what's holding you back is confidence or a wall of fear…jump. (the only remedy I've found for jump-starting this re-invention process!).

I wouldn't have gotten much done up to this point without jumping (no net).

In the writing of the How to be a Walking Momtra™ book, this theme comes up again and again. I believe this 'failure en route' to goals is an empowering theme to also be sharing with our little ones. It's empowering in its realism.

Tips for re-invention:

• Jump

• Get support

• Realize "failure en-route to your goals" is realistic and only makes you stronger for when you finally get there.

• And, as I always say, start today. Whether it's a micro-movement (a call or email to get a ball rolling), do it. Put yourself in the game.Your happiness awaits on the other side!

This illustration above was created with the help of an illustrator - it commemorates the reverence I have for change and re-invention. In ten years of business, I've lived in six different cities and three different countries. I've started a business, grown that business, changed the business, had a baby overseas, started anew many times after that, began writing a book and generally have put myself out there in more ways than I sometimes give myself credit for.

Life is good.

All my best to you - Michelle.
