I had an amazing conversation yesterday with Jen from @seductionofsoul. Not only did I feel heard and acknowledged, I also felt inspired to make change. Jen and I spent a lot of time talking about how I was feeling stuck and unmotivated in my life. At the heart of it was GUILT.

Guilt for not being more present to my daughter. Guilt for not being farther along in my journey. Guilt for not doing my yoga yet that day. Guilt for not eating better. Guilt for treating myself like I was the least important person in my life.

And that guilt had hung around long enough that it was turning into something more, like resentment and anger.

In order to create momentum again in my life, I would need to let go of that guilt. To give myself permission to be exactly where I am and exactly who I am.

I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to have it all figured out. And I don't have to live up to some false ideal that I've created in my head about how "good mothers" or "good entrepreneurs" behave. I have permission to put myself first, to determine my non-negotiables that make me a better and happier person, and to let go of the things that aren't serving me (like guilt). x

Are you feeling stuck or like you've lost your mojo? What stories are you telling yourself about who you are and how you're supposed to behave? And what can you do -- no matter how big or small -- to create even a little bit of momentum to help you get moving again?
