Episode 221:  A Different Way Of Setting Goals

Episode 221: A Different Way Of Setting Goals

Last week we wrapped up our series that lead us to Christmas called walking with Jesus.  I loved hearing from other working moms about their faith and all that Jesus as done in their lives.  

Next week we are starting a new series diving deep into some areas of life that you might have the most pressing goals to achieve for the new year.  I didn’t say new year resolution, but it might be that for you, or just some intentions for the new year, goals for your life or really whatever you want to call it, it doesn’t matter.  But if you are looking for improvement in your health, finances, home or other area of your life, you want to make sure you hit subscribe if you haven’t already so you don’t miss any of the great experts we have lined up.

So, with last week ending a series and next week starting a series, we are in a week of transition.  And really that is what this week has been all about….meaning the week between Christmas and New years.  It is my favorite week of the year because it is quiet, there isn’t that much going on and I can just breath, think, and be.

Every year I use this week to reflect on areas of my life, give gratitude, dream a little and just talk to God about bigger things than I normally get to on a daily bais.  I go through a process that allows me better insight to setting goals and getting ready to accomplish them.  

It is this exact system that I have been teaching to our Life Balance members this week.  If you are not a life Balance member, you can still join us! The great thing is that we are walking through a pre-recorded course that you can start really at anytime.  It’s a 7-day new program that has been added to the membership and it will help you get clear on your goals in a whole new way.  

In this episode, I wanted to share with you one of the priciples that we teach in this progam.  It’s a different way of setting goals than most people do.

Often when we set goals, they are out of pain of some kind.  For example, maybe you want to lose weight because you are not comfortalbe in your clothes, someone has said something to you or you experienced something that was hurtful.  Maybe you had a doctor appointment and the results were scary and it has caused you to look differently at your health. Maybe you are setting goals around your finances because you are tired of working hard and not getting ahead.  Your tired and want to afford a vacation or you are feeling the pinch of debt.

When we feel this pain or discomfort, it moves us to make a change.  When we decide to make a change, we start looking for the solution or a recipe to follow.  This is where things get complicated. Do you know how many diet plans are out there that you could follow?  I don’t either because there are new ones popping up all the time. I always say the best health program out there is the one that you will stick to.  And that is just for health, the same can be said for any area of life that you want to improve.  

Now, there is nothing wrong with seeking outside information, learning, or finding someone that can help you.  But often times we miss a huge step in the process. We forget that if we really want to change, it takes power…willpower.  And guess what? We are not nearly as powerful as our maker is. How much easier would it be to reach your goals if the Spirit of God was working in your favor to help you get there?

Seeking God in our goal setting process is critical for success in achieving it, but more than that, when we are on board with God’s will for any situation, the peace and grace is unmeasurable.

Bringing our desires to God is the first step.  Letting his grace extend past what we are capable of will help us get to where we want to go.  The other awesome things about journeying toward where you want to go with God, is that his grace overflows to other areas of your life.

That is the second point to what we are doing in Life Balance, we are looking at all areas of life, not just the one that is causing pain.  Do you know why it is causing pain? Becuase it has been neglected. When we set a goal based on our pain points alone, we tend to shift the focus to the one area of life and that can set us off balance and strart to neglect other areas of our life….you guessed it…they will be come future pain points.  It starts to create a cycle. 

Think about it as if you were spinning plates on poles like they do in the circus.  When you go the method of focusing on the one area that needed the most, you are not paying attention to the other plates spinning until they are just about ready to crash.  Then you have to rush to rescue the other areas before they come crashing to the ground.

Instead, if you have a system to keep the plates all going, and you are able to calmly check in on each one, give it a little of what it needs to keep going, it becomes much more managable.  And when life happens and the unexpected happens, if you followed the first step, you have the Holy Spirit by your side to help you.

That is exactly what we are doing inside Life Balance Membership.  Teaching you the system to do just that. That is what has always been in the membership.  The new course that we are going through right now, is really helping you first look to God for a vision for the year and then assessing each area of your life to get a direction toward what is needed to keep that area healthy.  Once we go through each area, then it’s all about taking that direction you have discoved and bringing it back to God. This prepares you to be able to live it out with the Life Balance System.

 

 

This is the kind of exercise that we are doing for each area of life.  It’s real. It’s not sexy. But it give you a clear vision of where you are and what you need to be focused on.  

Now we we are setting goals in Life Balance, it’s not to solve all the things.  It is about making progress in 90-days. That is the goal.  

I have said this before, but in case you have not heard me say it or you just need a reminder:

You can set goals in all areas of your life….and you should.  Goals are different than a life change. Want to lose 50 lbs? That is a life change not a goal.  Looking for a new career? That’s a life change. Having a baby? That is a life change. While you can have multiple goals, I don’t recommend multiple life changes.  You will go into survive mode and it’s not only difficult, it will painful.

Your life change might be to lose 50lbs but your 90-day health goal might be to focus on your water everyday, sticking to your eating plan, or adding in physical activity.  

I hope these tips help you as you start to look toward the new year.  Let me recap what we talked about.

  1.  Look to God and his strength before you start after your goals in your own.
  2. Look to set goals in all areas of your life, not just one.
  3. A life change is different than a goal.  Don’t do more than one life change at a time.

Like I said at the begininning of this episdoe, it’s not too late to join us inside of Life Balance Membership and go through this 7-day process for yourself.  You can upgrade right inside the app or by going to Life Balance Membership.com

 

Next week we are back and starting our new series!  If you are new to the show, our new series is reflective of what we are all about.  I’ll be brining you expert guests in each of the 8 areas of life to help inspire you to be the best version of yourself in each area.  Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss it!

 

Until next week, keep building a life that rocks

Episode 212: Getting Back on Track When You Feel Unbalanced

Episode 212: Getting Back on Track When You Feel Unbalanced

Last week we talked about recovering from burn out and how to fill up your bucket.  If you didn’t listen to that episode, I hope you go back and listen because it is tied to this week’s show.  If you did listen, you might remember at the begining of the show I said that if you are feeling out of balance, guilt is creeping in, and overwhelm and stress is starting to take over, there are likely two reasons why.

  1. You are out of balance in an area of your life
  2. Or your bucket is empty.

Since we covered the second reason last week, I thought it would be good to cover the first reason this week.  I mean why only cover half of what you need?

Here’s the thing, sometimes we get to the place of the crazies because life is crazy and something comes along and takes us out of the game.  It could be getting sick, hurt, or something happening to a loved one, an unexpected change in your job or relationship with someone. But sometimes it’s because we are living in an unbalanced way.

Both can be really hard on us, but if it’s the unbalanced stuff?  That can be easier to come back from.  

Let’s first talk about balance.  I know, so many people say that it’s not possible but I say it is…you just have to define it for yourself.

Here is what works for me.  Balance is not a place to arrive to.  It’s not an accomplishment. It is a verb.  It’s an action that we choose to take each day in our lives to be the best version of ourselves in all that God has called us to be.  

I can get out of balance when I choose not to do what is necessary to be the best version of myself.  Sometimes it’s because I get lazy, or I get excited about a work project or something else that causes me to neglect the other things I know I should be doing.  And you know what? It’s ok. As long as you can bring yourself back.

Think of it as if you were balancinging on a curb.  If you lean one way, you are ok as long as you lean back the other way.  If you don’t, you fall. If you fall, you are no longer balancing.

So how do you know when life is getting a bit unbalanced?  Let me tell you a secret. Your calendar won’t cue you into this.  Balance has nothing to do with your time and where it is spent. I can feel balance in my finances by only spending 3 hours a month in that area of my life.  

You will know you are out of balance by the little things that stress you out.  The undone things in your life. The feelings of guilt.

Yep, feelings of guilt can be healthy.  I know as a mom we are told to avoid mom guilt.  No one likes to feel unpleasant feelings. But they are there for a reason.  Listen to them and take action. These feelings of guilt can get unhealthy when we push them down and put our head in the sand.  But if we ask ourselves, why we are feeling that way and make a plan to course correct, then gult can be a powerful tool to help you stay on  the intentional track that you want to be on.

So, if you have been experiencing any of these things, the steps I have for you to reclaim balance for yourself will help.

  • Feeling guility about things you are not doing
  • Super stressed about money, or things that need to be done at home
  • Gaining weight
  • Feeling out of touch with your husband, or other relationship
  • Felling disconnected with God

Any of these ringing true for you?

Now before we get into what to do about it.  I want to first say, that there is no shame. No one is every going to feel 100% balanced and good with every area of life all the time.  If you can realate to the feelings above all it means is that you are normal. You are not doing anything wrong. It is just life this side of heaven.  In fact, if you are feeling any of these things….count it as a blessing. Thank God that he has put a warning system inside us called emotions. They help us from driving completely off the rails.  

Ok, enough with that.  Let’s get into what to do about it.

Simply put, lean into it.  If you feel like you are not being a good mom, ask yourself….what does me look like as a good mom?  Notice the question is what does it look like when you are a good mom….not what your neighbor or the other girl in your kids class’s mom is doing that you are not.  We are all different. We do things different. Let’s not compare ourselves to eachother, let’s just get to know ourselves. What does it look like when you are your best at being a mom?  What does it look like when you need to step up your game?

When you define what better would be in any area that you feel is lacking….do it.

Not sure what area is lacking but you just know you are feeling out of wack?  Pull out your journal…let’s go through each area of life. Faith, marriage, parenting, career, home, health, finances, friendships/fun.

Journal out what the best version of you does in each of these areas.  This is what the Life Balance course is all about. Helping you identify these things and more importantly, make a plan to get there.

But here is the thing.  You have to make the effort to do it.  Otherwise you are not listening to the warning signs and trust me.  I have been there and you don’t want to see where that leads. It’s not pretty.

If you are finding yourself needed to recalibrate your balance, now is great time to do it.  The holidays are fast appraoching and can magnify anything that is not getting the attention that it needs in your life.  So take the 15 minutes or so and go through this exercise now and start making a plan to bring things back into balance now.

Episode 210: Controlling the Chaos of Paper in Your Home with Lisa Woodruff (encore presentation)

Episode 210: Controlling the Chaos of Paper in Your Home with Lisa Woodruff (encore presentation)

Sometimes life gets a little too full and we have to prioritize.  That is what has happened this week.  I have a sick child in the hospital but wanted to make sure that there was a podcast for you this week.  So, I pulled our Facebook community and overwhelmingly, you all voted for an episode on taking care of your home.  This show originally aired back in 2017 as episode 96.  I hope you enjoy!

As a working mom, controlling chaos is our middle name.  But, I think we all have those piles of paper lurking around our home, cluttering our minds, and occupying the guilty thoughts in our head.  What if you could control all that paper and have a system that brought back your sanity?  Our guest for this episode, Professional Organizer Lisa Woodruff from Organize 365 podcast is here to rescue us!  She shares her tips for handling all the paper that comes into your house, including the school artwork. 

About Our Guest

Action Items and Tips From the Show

ORGANIZATION 101: the SUNDAY BASKET

The Sunday Basket is Organization 101. Paper is here to stay. Creating systems for your paper will free your mental anxiety and help you be more productive.

  • Get a pretty basket/bag/container that sits on your kitchen counter that all the paper from the week goes in.

  • Adding to your Weekly Success Planning, schedule time on Sunday to go through your Sunday basket. Decide what you need to do with the paper that is in there (bill to pay, something to call on, throw away, file) and sort accordingly.

  • We don’t have to keep everything…..ask yourself this question: “If I need this in the future, can I find it online?” If the answer is yes, then get rid of it.

Lisa shared other great tips about what to do with all the school art that comes home, storing things in binders, and more!  Check out the podcast episode for more details.

Episode 188: How to Take Your Home from Chaotic to Clean with Jenny Welsh

Episode 188: How to Take Your Home from Chaotic to Clean with Jenny Welsh

We have all been there.  The constant mess and chaos of our houses can leave us with overwhelm and guilt and can make us wonder if we have what it takes to make our house our home.  But there is good news!  The state of your house does not define you!  I know, easier said than done.  In this episode, we hear how to make that so with Jenny Welsh.  She shares 3 steps of her Chaotic to Clean Method that will help you bring God back into the state of your home and feel like you have it conquered.

About Our Guest

After 6 years as a working mom, Jenny Welsh took a leap of faith and became a stay at home mom after her third child was born. Like too many women, she felt out of place in her own home and overwhelmed by the clutter. Combining her knack for organization with her experience creating operating procedures and processes, she developed the 7 step Chaotic To Clean method for overcoming the clutter in her home. Now, she teaches moms her people-first home organization method, so they can create space for more of what and who they love.

Action Items and Tips From the Show

A recent study shared that 89% of working moms and 92% of stay at home moms felt overwhelmed by their homes. Those numbers get me fired up! It’s way too high!

Too often we associate our self-worth with the state of our homes. We have been conditioned by film, magazines and social media to identify others’ and our own worth based on our stuff. This is such a big lie. You are NOT defined by your things. Your clutter does not define you.

In the first three steps of Jenny’s 7 step Chaotic To Clean method, we work to shift our mindset away from feeling like we aren’t enough because we don’t have the “right” decor or stuff in our homes and focus on doing more with what we already have.

That one thing is God. Only God can fill the void that we are trying to fill with stuff.

Step 1: Pray

Invite God into your home and into your home organization plans. I like to ask what can I do with what I already have.

This is not about copying a look or style found in a magazine, but about creating a home that is perfect for you to thrive in. So that you can become who God created you to be without distraction.

Step 2: Pause

When we pause and really look at why our clutter keeps collecting, we can develop REAL solutions for maintaining our homes. The goal is no longer to have a clean home because we want to fill a void or feel a certain way about ourselves. The goal is to have a home that serves a purpose (and cleanliness is a by-product of that). So, when we pause, we are asking where in the cleanup process am I getting stuck? What about the way I currently organize my home does NOT work for my family’s needs?

Step 3:  Plan

What are 2-4 things that you want to achieve in your home? How do you want your family, guests and you to feel in your home? What are those words? Now, you can set out to intentionally create THAT. Not someone else’s ideas of what our homes should look like, but exactly what you and your family need today.

This is the step where it’s safe to open up Pinterest. But, not to copy. Maybe for the first time ever, you are looking at Pinterest for inspiration on how to achieve specific things!

  1. Your vision. How do you want your bedroom to function? Decide what you want to use your bedroom for.

  4. Sort your clothes to decide what you love. Take them all out of your closet and dresser and try them ALL on! Does it FIT, does it FLATTER, is it FUN? Ask yourself, would someone else get more use out of it than me? If so, let it go: share, sell, donate.
  5. Does your closet function well? Do you need to add clothing rods or shelving?  Do you like the doors on or off your closet?  Can you put a dresser in your closet?
  6. Declutter your drawers, tops of dressers, chairs, cabinets, nightstands, and under your bed. Get rid of everything you don’t want or need in your bedroom. You may be surprised at what you have been storing here.
  7. Are you storing things in your bedroom that doesn’t belong? Remove them and put them away.

Episode 183:  Spring Cleaning; How to Organize Your Kitchen with Monique Horb

Episode 183: Spring Cleaning; How to Organize Your Kitchen with Monique Horb

Spring is here!  With the change of seasons, I can’t help but want to clean and organize my house.  To help us in this process, we are joined by professional organizer Monique Horb.  In this episode, she walks us through the step by step process of organizing our kitchen.  The kitchen is the heart of the home and you will reap the benefits of doing this as you do your weekly prep.

About Our Guest

Monique Horb has a passion for helping women who are busy, tired, and overwhelmed. She does this by organizing homes and paper piles so that women can be more productive, have time and energy to live their purpose and live the life they want. She loves to say, Life Is Easier Organized!

She began her business, Organizing Your Chaos, after experiencing depression, bankruptcy, adoption, marriage, and medical crisis. These things were out of her control, and her home was falling apart. Through twists and turns, she learned that with an organized home she was able to manage.

Monique was raised in southwest Michigan and graduated from Taylor University, a Christian college in Indiana, with a BA in Sociology & Psychology. She met her husband through a friend while working at Spring Hill Camps in Michigan. They have been married for twenty-five years and have six children, two dogs, and a cat. Her life experiences have pushed her out of her comfort zone and shaped the business that she created.

She loves to help women who struggle to get their homes organized.  She knows that the simple (yet difficult) act of getting your home organized gives hope. Hope propels us forward, gives confidence, and allows changes to happen. This can change your life.

When asked, “How do you do it?” she responds, “I get up and get dressed.”

She believes that being willing to take off the mask, ask for help and work hard, alongside faith in God, has changed her life. She continues to help women change their lives, and shares that we are all better when we are in community together.
