Are you starting to have regrets about what you haven’t done yet in your life?
Working moms tend to think they can do it all. Does this sound like you? I felt this way for sure.
As a group, we are accomplished in so many areas. We do a lot, that’s for sure. I feel super proud of myself for many things, but I feel exceptionally giddy when I plan the PERFECT route around the city to accomplish a crazy list of disparate errands. What’s that about?
But seriously, is it possible to do it all without regrets?
I don’t think so. At least this is what my clients are telling me.
I’ve noticed that we’ve been so busy “doing it all” for so long that we’ve forgotten to check in with ourselves to see if we’re even happy and content doing what we’re doing, prioritizing what we’re spending our time on and ultimately, living the life we want to live.
Check out this graphic from salary.com. Working moms have a “base salary” from their “40 hour-a-week jobs” and then there’s so much more. The most recent calculation shows that there’s an average of 19 hours of overtime for a total “salary” worth about $90,000 US.
I was particularly taken by the list of jobs in a typical MOM job description.
I see now that I referred to “logistics analyst” above with my expert navigation and traffic flow expertise.
But what do we give up? What regrets are looming if we don’t make changes to how busy and programmed we have become?
That’s what my new Facebook group is all about. I called it “Regret Proofing 101.” It’s for working moms who want to dream big and love their lives.
It’s so important to prioritize your ability to prioritize. When’s the last time you actually thought about what you really, really wanted? My guess is that it was probably 20 years ago or so. Maybe when you graduated from college?
Sometimes what you really want means that you have to make a change. That’s a whole other thing. If you feel stuck or confused, you are probably already slowly becoming aware of the thoughts that are preventing you from regret proofing your life.
The Regret Proofing 101 Facebook Group is for you if:
- You know it’s time to make sure you don’t have regrets about what you haven’t done with your life (even if it’s only a whisper in your ear, you know something is off);
- Now that you’re older, you know something has to change but aren’t sure where to start.
- You’re ready to think more about about all of this and would love advice, support, coaching and help to make sure that you live intentionally and dream big going forward.
If you’re reading this, you know deep down that it’s time for you figure out what you want, understand what’s stopping you from moving forward with what you want, and finally, create a life you can get excited about!
