Eighteen months ago, I hit my rock bottom.

It was mid-morning and my husband went to work for the day. I’d been living of four hours of broken sleep a night for months on end with an eight-month-old and a two-year-old.

To say I felt like I was losing my mind is an understatement.

I remember it clearly…

I was sitting with my knees to my chest on the kitchen floor hiding from my children sobbing hysterically. My eight-month-old was crying in his cot (still had horrible reflux and cried constantly), and my two-year-old was peering around the kitchen corner staring at me wondering what the hell was going on…

Whilst crying hysterically to my sister on the phone where she displayed THE BEST EMPATHY EVER (good one sis, everyone needs one of her). I eventually said through sobs “what do I do now?”

She replied “I don’t know. But you will figure it out one step at a time.”

After I got off the phone in a somewhat calmer state, I had an epiphany.

I DON’T NEED TO KNOW THE INS AND OUTS of how to get from a shattered mess to being back to my old confident self, all I need to ask is this:

What’s the next right step?

That’s it!

And in that moment, I knew what it was, and I took action…

And slowly I did get out of the emotional turmoil I was in…

And I’ve asked myself this question ever since.

It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed with everything on our plate. Anxiety is all too common and the catch phrase “I’m so busy” is becoming the norm.

We can get lost in seeing everything we have to do, that we forget to break it down into bite size pieces.

Are you…

Feeling uncertain about what decision to make regarding your family’s future?

What’s the next right step?

Going through a separation and don’t know what to do?

What’s the next right step?

Wanting to lose weight but it all seems too hard?

What’s the next right step?

Overwhelmed by everything on your to-do-list you don’t know where to even start?

What’s the next right step?

As human’s we tend to overcomplicate things. We can get caught up in the drama of our day-to-day lives that we actually forget to live our lives moment by moment, step by step.

And if you’re unsure of what the next right step is – trust your intuition, your gut…take some time out in the day and be still – stare into the trees whilst drinking a cup of tea, journal, be mindful of what’s going on, and trust that it will come to you. Deep down, you know…and even if you stuff up, then just take the next right step once more…

If you want greater clarity around what your next right step is, then reach out to me for a quick chat. That could just be your next right step

Much love to you
