Jamie Scrimgeour - Stepmom Support

I want you to picture this time, next year. 
This DAY in 2019. 

If this time, next year, you and your stepfamily are in the same place as you are now, will you be satisfied with that?

The same issues.
The same dynamic with your husband’s ex.
The same dynamic with the your stepkids.
The same way of dealing with things.

Will you be okay with that?
Will you be living the best version of your life?

As we come to the end of 2018, we're all starting to think about New Years Resolutions.

Every year, in December, I ask myself, “where do I want to be this time next year?”

I do a HUGE audit of my life and figure out where I want to see change. 
Personally, professionally, in my friendships, in my marriage, in my family. I look at it all.

Here’s something I know for sure…. If you’re struggling right now and you don’t commit to some sort of change… next year at this time, you’re going to find yourself in the exact same place.

Because change doesn’t just happen. It has to be intentional. And it takes work… even in areas of our life where we never anticipated needing support. 
 
In areas where it feels WEIRD to seek out support.

TRUST ME: I’ve invested a lot for time and energy into working on my relationship with family members, my marriage, and my life as a stepmom. Never in my life did I think that THAT would be where I invested my resources. It felt weird and uncomfortable at first… but man, it was worth it!

As I’m sure you’ve heard, the cart for The KICK-ASS Stepmom Project is closing at the end of 2018. So before it does, I encourage you to ask yourself… will I be satisfied if next year at this time, my stepfamily dynamic is the EXACT SAME as it is right now?

People say they don’t want to spend $199 on a course. And I get it, it’s an investment. But yet people will go and spend that on two dinners out with their family (sometimes even one), or splurging at the mall. 

Sure, you may be sacrificing the new hot outfit, or that juicy steak at the restaurant to invest in yourself… but with that investment your family dynamic could be completely transformed for years to come. 

It's a matter of instant gratification vs long term change

Think about the last time that shhhhh really hit the fan.

How much would you pay in that moment… to not feel that way you felt? To not have that pit in your stomach. To not be like “is this really my life?!”, like you can’t do anything right!!

I know back when I was struggling I would have given a heck of a lot more than $199 to not feel that way. in fact, I did!
 
The question is…
How much is your family worth? 
No…. how much is your sanity worth?

Because here’s the thing beautiful stepmama, it doesn’t have to be like this! Seriously it doesn’t.
