Episode​ 110 True strength comes NOT from fighting or flighting BUT from sitting in the silence


Episode 110  of podcast Being well with Lauren

True strength comes NOT from fighting or flighting  BUT from sitting in the silence
As a single Mum, age 51, with four kids, life can be challenging. One of the challenges I continue to face is the precarious ever-changing balance between mothering and maintaining my sense of self.

How do you keep a sense of calm in the mayhem of your life?

It is Sunday morning. I have just got back from basketball practice, and I have tried( emphasis on the word tried) to clean the house. I have picked up banana peels and apple cores. I have cleaned out the garage. I have washed dishes, put a wash on, Put washing away, cooked food for the next three days( I hope the food lasts that long)cleaned the kitchen, vacuumed and somehow the house still looks pretty terrible. Yes, my life with four kids life can be quite challenging. One of the issues which keep coming back to test me is how to be a Mum( I love being a Mum) without it becoming my only label. After all, Mothering is one of the labels I wear among of so many labels. I am not one story I am many stories. Sometimes in life parenting can tend to dominate our sense of self and like a tsunami drown out everything else. Thats why It is important to find ways to always maintain a sense of self, but this is easier than it sounds.
How do you so it?
How do you define the balance?
How to plan around the mayhem of life without placing yourself under too much pressure?

And let’s face it Panic just doesn’t help but staying calm in the chaos of life is hard work.

How do you remain calm?
Let’s talk through these questions and more. Go and get your cup of tea and let’s have a friendly chat.

Hello, Lauren here, mother of four amazing children, blogger, writer YouTuber, and personal trainer, today we talk about the simple pleasures of life.

Today we are going to talk about the beautiful experiences of life.

Today I have a mishmash of thoughts to chat about. Have you heard that quote ‘planning to fail is failing to plan’ ?  Today we chat about the importance of planning each and every day in order to feel happy. We talk about balancing roles, multitasking and fulfilling responsibilities. We also explore planning, journaling, and practicing your core values. And of course, we also chat about finding happiness every single day.

It is the school holidays here and as you know I have for beautiful ( and young)children home from school. My gratitude for my four beautiful children is one amazing story in my life. However, four beautiful children also bring with it many stories; stories which need to be heard each day. Each day I listen to and process my children’s stories of experience, learning, growth, development. Of course, I love to be a mother but I am not only a mother. Mothering is something that I do; a behavior rather than a label. I am so many things and I have many stories which make up the person that I am. So what is the formula to multitasking and still finding happiness? What are your stories? How are you finding and exploring happiness each day? How are you honoring all the stories which make up the amazing person that you are? Do you have your cup of tea ready? Mine is in hand. Let’s have a lovely chat.
