the redefined day
Hi. I am julie and I am a recovering angry mom.
It all started when…
my husband left for another tour on a submarine. He had left me before, but this time, I was not only a wife, but a mom of two girls under two.
It rocked me to my core. The isolation, the long days, the sleepless nights, the crying, the loss of self...after a few months, I barely noticed the person starting back at me in the mirror.
Anger and resentment would bubble up without notice and the slightest infraction from either child, jolted me into a rage I had never experienced before in my life.
In those moments of motherhood, anything I had ever struggled with, had resurfaced and it was exposing my insecurities, my fears, and pent up frustration that I had thought had been buried years ago.
What I learned is that you can't sweep away pain. Pain has to be held. We have to get curious about pain. We have to sit in the pain, and we have to let the pain move through us.
Motherhood broke me as a human being, but with those pieces, I have rebuilt myself into a stronger, more authentic version of me that I wouldn't trade for all the tea in China.
I put together this journal because change can be challenging and this work to rebuild new habits and thought patterns takes work. Just like physical health is a daily practice, so too, must be our mental health.
In the Redefined Day Journal, you will be able to put pen to paper and truly begin to notice negative thought patterns and work to create new thoughts and actions that better serve our lives.
