Project Me was created to help you find a happier balance between the kids – and everything else. It’s your place to figure out what’s not working and discover ways to make it all run more smoothly.
It’s also important to see where life is going great! Sometimes we focus too much on the negative and forget to pat ourselves on the back for what we’re doing well.
This is your chance to put the focus on you.
Each week you’ll find a fresh blog post covering one of your 8 Key Life Areas. There’s always a clear call to action to help you take the great stuff you read and put it into your life. The real ‘aha’s’ happen in the comments under the blogs where we all share our insights and experiences. Come and join in!
Sign up for my Monday Motivator newsletter and I’ll also send you the Project Me Life Wheel®. It’ll help you quickly see where you’re out of balance and help get you back on track. Busy mamas worldwide are LOVING it!
(I’ll never bombard you or share your details with anyone else.)
Project Me is about you, but here’s a bit about me:
Spending the first half of my life in America and the second half in England, I’m kind of a Yank-Brit hybrid. I speak in an accent no one can place and my spellings and expressions deviate between US to UK English, so please bear with me!
My amazing boys are now 17 and 14, but I really struggled in the early days of parenting.
Out of sheer desperation, I signed up for a course of parenting skills classes. It was transformational, making me realise that being a mother was my most important role. I went on to help other mothers find ways to make parenting easier.
But over time it hit me that all of the best parenting classes in the world are not going to help if you – the mother – are feeling stressed out, unsupported, overwhelmed or aren’t taking care of yourself properly.
When some parts of your life are not running smoothly, it has a knock on effect on everything else.
The key to finding a happy balance is recognising when you’re out of balance and taking action to put things right.
No matter how busy life gets, carving out small chunks of planning and solution time is the best investment you can possibly make in your own personal happiness.
I’ve seen for myself how much happier my kids are when I’m happy. Mothers create the weather in our home and our kids pick up on that.
As a Mama Motivator, I’ve been featured in The Huffington Post, Tiny Buddha, Zen Parenting Radio, Clutter Rescue TV, Simple Daily Practice Radio, Great Moments in Parenting and The Female Entrepreneur Association.
When I’m not helping others to create their Project Me, I’m spending time on my Project ME! When I take the time to get to know myself better, I feel so much happier and have more to give.
And I’m now a proud affiliate of The Parent Practice’s new Positive Parenting Academy. It’s a wonderful on-line course that you can do from home no matter where you live. And if you enrol using my special link you’ll get a 20% discount at check-out.
I can’t wait to connect with you under the blogs and hear how it’s going for you! You can also email me anytime: firstname.lastname@example.org I’d love to help you on your journey into a happier, well balanced life.
A few extra quirks (in case you’re still here!)
- I have a glitter phobia. Eeeek! Can’t stand the stuff.
- I seriously suck at baking. I wish I’d photographed my disasters so I could show you just how bad I am!
- I’ve got an insane hot sauce collection. Some like it hot.
- Gossip gives me the creeps.
- I’ve kept every journal since I was 10.
- I have dyscalculia. It’s like dyslexia but with numbers.
- I’m solar powered!
- My husband and teenage son are both House music DJs which keeps me dancing!
- My last name is Pietrangeli which means ‘Rock Angels’ in Italian.
- Tequila is my tipple of choice.
- I crave…. variety, one-on-one connections, meaningful conversations about life, journal writing, dancing my socks off, salty snacks. And a well-made margarita.
- I’m a Goal Digger! I get clear about what I want, then create a game plan and make it happen. And I love helping others to do this too!
- My retirement plan involves a move to Ibiza and a hammock with a sea view.
The best piece of advice I’ve ever received: The time you have left after your kids have flown the coop is a lot longer than when they’re with you. Don’t lose yourself to motherhood. (From my dear grandma Millie.)
The best piece of advice I give a lot: Be in charge of your own happiness. If something’s not working, create a small-step action plan to improve things. You’ve GOT this!
