Hey. It’s me, Mar.
I’m a wife + mother of 5 balancing all my various roles (think: baker, hug giver, art critic, cleaner, meal planner…) by turning my dreams into plans and living my creative, happy, fulfilled life. It took me time to learn how to balance those roles so I can do the creative stuff in life (think: calligraphy, knitting, sewing, painting, photography…). Being creative is what makes me get out of bed. Sharing how I have time to be creative makes me thrive.
I help people like you know how to live your own creative, happy, fulfilled life because I know how great it feels when that balance is achieved. When I don’t take care of me (read: all those roles), everything falls apart. I don’t feel like getting out of bed, let alone taking care of 5 kids or keeping up on the endless laundry, cooking, cleaning, or everything else. So, I take care of me. It’s like the airplane thing: you must secure your mask first before you can help anyone else.
I keep my life in check by paying attention. I listen to what I’m thinking + feeling. I journal. I dream about how I want my life to go, I plan accordingly, and then I live it.
I love my life. I love waking early + enjoying my first cup of coffee in a quiet house with my notebook. I love that moment in the afternoon when the laundry is done, my baby is napping, and I can have another quiet cup of coffee or tea while I do something creative.
On the outside looking in, it can seem like a lot of work to get to this place. I can tell you that after having 5 kids I finally have my routine figured out. I do a lot of writing, and I only share what works. You get all my shortcuts. That’s what’s required here: writing + your commitment to yourself.
You have to want to work for yourself. You have to want to live better. You have to know that only you have the power to change the way your life is.
If you do the work- journaling + planning, you will know exactly what you need to live a balanced, productive, creative life. You will have more time + energy. Imagine having blocks of free time to do whatever you want to do because everything else is already done.
If you want to take your everyday, ‘I’m just a mom’ life and crank it up a notch, this is exactly where you need to be. Create more abundance + live the life you want. Turn your dreams into plans and live. You got this. It’s your life. Start living today because tomorrow you’ll wish you had.
