Embracing my feelings as a failure and how I support myself.

Embracing my feelings as a failure and how I support myself.

Recently, I've just expressed how much I feel like a failure on Instagram. Mainly, regarding around how I am as a mother. Even more so these days, as I feel like a complete failure as a life coach, thinking I'm helping a client only to FEEL like I stuffed up her even more. 

Hello inner mean cray-cray negative me!

But my beautiful mentor reminded me that it is ok to feel the emotions of failure, in fact, welcome it with open arms, sit with it and feel the pain. [Really?] Yes really.  Then, choose to say "Hello failure, I feel you, I acknowledge you but you do not serve me right now. Because I'm the type of woman who knows I am doing a great job as a mother, in my life coaching modalities and in life."
