We see you.
We know who you are.
You’re the devoted mum who’d give anything for her teenage kids.
You love them so much, you’re even willing to sacrifice yourself for them.
Your happiness, your health, your time. And you do.
We understand that when you love someone, you’ll do anything for them. You’ll even die for them.
But will you live for them instead?
We see you heading to the grocery store every few days to stock up on food, so you can continue to feed their hungry, growing bodies.
We know you put a lot of thought into giving them the best nutrition you can, but your lack of energy sometimes means you go for an easier, less nutritious option. And you sometimes feel guilty about this.
It’s not easy trying to be everything to everyone. Helping your kids navigate the endless peer pressure, trying to teach them to be resilient people who can think for themselves, and the constant worry that you’re not getting it right.
It takes a toll on you.
And then there’s the endless car trips — to school, to sport, to parties.
There’s no time for you to have a social life because your too busy making sure your kids have one.
Raising teenagers is tough.
Most of the time, you wonder if you’re doing enough. You question yourself daily —are you giving them enough support, giving them enough freedom, protecting them enough, helping them enough. Are you even enough.
We know how tired you are most of the time, yet you continue to give, give, give.
We see you, devoted mum, even though you feel no one else does.
We know your cup is empty, yet you try to keep pouring from it.
We know you’re feeling tired and old. And that some days you feel a little angry and even resentful, because it feels like you’ve been forgotten.
We know this makes you feel guilty too, because you really do love your kids.
You also hate the way you look and are forever avoiding being in photographs. You don’t want anyone to see how you’ve let yourself slide. You know you need to lose weight, but you’ve tried so many times and nothing seems to work. Besides, you just don’t have time while you’re busy raising your teenagers.
Instead, you try to accept things as they are. Maybe even tell yourself that when your kids leave home, there’ll be more time for you. But underneath it all, you’re sad.
You’re sad because you’ve lost yourself, and you know that in a few short years, your teenagers won’t need you like they do now.
And you’re scared for what comes next, because you don’t know who you are without them.
You’ve seen yourself as a devoted mother for so long, that you don’t know who you are anymore.
But we know. Because we’re currently helping other mums just like you.
We see you devoted mum, and we’d love to help you too.
We’d love to help you find yourself again.
We want to show you that you can put yourself first and still take care of your kids.
That putting yourself first actually means you’ll be doing a better job of raising your teenagers.
We want to help you with your meal prep, and teach you how to quickly and easily prepare nourishing meals for the whole family, that leave you feeling guilt-free.
We want to help you get your health back. To lose the extra kilos, so you can feel young and vibrant and healthy again. We want to show you how you can incorporate exercise into your already crammed schedule, so you can feel energetic again.
We want to show you how to be the best role model you can so you can show your kids what it means to truly live a life worth living.
We want to help you find health and happiness again so you can live the life that you’re desperate to be living.
All we need is for you to reach out to us.
To say, ‘yes’ to yourself just once.
Instead of dying for your kids, won’t you choose to live for them instead? Live for yourself?
We’re waiting for you with open arms.
