So today I did laundry and put it away, cleaned the washroom, made lunch and dinner, did 45 minutes of yoga, took Ivy to the park and played with her, sent out my newsletter (subscribers, I love you!) submitted some paid writing work, replied to emails, added a recipe to my website, walked 8 km, set up the details for a photoshoot this weekend, worked on the food products company that my husband and I are launching in 2018 (mic drop) all while solo-parenting and taking care of my babe. It's almost 9:00 pm and I'm still at my computer working. Such is the life of raising a business and a baby - I wouldn't have it any other way.
This is the new recipe - Winter Chickpea Potato Stew - find it on ASHLEYWOOD.LIFE, the link is in my bio. #ladyboss#workingmom
Whether it's making your bed every morning, achieving a degree, or starting your own business, etc, the key to staying motivated is consistently setting goals. Even with my patients, I regularly have discussions about their goals in treatment (even if they're stable) because there's always something to work towards. And in our personal & professional lives, we experience growth through movement and change. •
But keep in mind that goals don't always have to be huge. For example, my goal today is to make it to the grocery store before it closes . What goals do YOU have to keep your momentum going this week?? #mondaymotivation#psychiatrist#hereforyou#goals#getit#makeithappen
Are you PASSIONATE about your career?
When your so passionate about something you feel like your heart could burst with joy just thinking about it, doesn't it just make sense to do it
Helping people for a living makes sense to my head, because that's whats in my heart !
I remember bawling my eyes out before work in the mornings at my old corporate job that I hated, thinking,
"Is this it? Is this my freaking life!?" Stuck in a cubicle under the fluorescent lighting, with the window so far away. That Just wasn’t enough for me
I knew that, that was not the mom I wanted to be. Exhausted, miserable, and burned out, away from home nine or more hours a day, while someone else watched my kids.
I prayed that God would show me how I could make a living serving people, and how I could stay home wth my kids, and he answered my prayers. It wasn't the answer I expected, but it has truly been a gift
When your purpose is calling you, when you KNOW that you know, that you know, you were made for more, you gotta ANSWER that call!
My career is not conventional, but neither am I. I'm not here to conform. I'm here to break boundaries, and to make a difference in this world ! When God calls me, I answer! .
Maybe YOU are feeling called for more?
Do you :
Want to spend more time at home with your family?
Want to build your own business and work for yourself?
Love helping other people succeed?
Have a passion for, or an interest in health and wellness? Have a great work ethic? Have passion and determination?
Like to have fun and meet new friends?
Then maybe this is YOUR calling too

I been giving birth on these haters cuz I'm fertillllllle
gotcha! got your attention to actually tell you what this is about. Besides the beyonce lyrics.. It's about the paradox: me posting a picture from some days ago smiling and contrasting it for social media how I'm actually feeling today: overwhelmed. it's so easy to think that everyone's life is a certain way based on online posts. it's 2017 and that's just how things are these days I suppose.
some days everything comes crashing down and I feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders--- and I am not okay. today is one of those days.
On Monday, we HIIT ...then we Wine . I love my Monday night crew. They push, push harder and kick ass every week. And through it all, they smile, high five and manage to get in a few laughs. . If you are in the McHenry county area, we’d love to have you join us! DM me for a FREE class pass!
