Why We Need An Empowering Mom Tribe

Why We Need An Empowering Mom Tribe

Why do female relationships matter?

Several studies have shown that the impact of having good relationships, especially female friendships has a direct impact on our well being. Science is now explaining what we’ve always known intuitively. It’s why we feel better when we connect with our girlfriends!
“The famed Nurses’ Health Study from Harvard Medical School found that the more friends women had, the less likely they were to develop physical impairments as they aged, and the more likely they were to be leading a joyful life.”*
But in the ever comparing mom world of how moms choose to feed their child, stay at home moms, working moms, giving birth differently, managing our lives, nurturing our kids, laundry, cooking, cleaning…there can be alot of insecurity, isolation, and lack of time in our quest to find a great mom tribe.  At ihelpmoms.com however we believe in MORE love and less judgement to find true fulfillment in motherhood. To those lucky gals that end up living by their long time friends this can seem easy.  But to those of us that have moved 3,000 miles away from our lifelong friends and family, we want to encourage you that finding the right mom tribe that lifts you up, that makes you want to be the best version of yourself, can take TIME! But it is worth it!

How can we turn competition into inspiration?

We’ve been raised in a predominantly masculine world where we’ve been taught more about competition than about collaboration. Competition is in essence a masculine energy quality. We can do it and we can be very good at it. But it doesn’t fulfill us at a soul level like collaboration does. So just understanding that by design we were not meant to compete with one another but to collaborate is very powerful. In ancient times women supported one another in almost everything. In today’s modern world we are more isolated than ever. So we have to purposely build our tribe and those connections. 

Step 1: So the first thing is to understand where the feelings of jealousy or competition come from, acknowledge them and release them. 
Step 2: Next we can use those uncomfortable feelings to identify what it is we actually want. 
Step 3: When you know what you want you can get clear on what steps you need to take to get closer. 
Identifying your WANT is very powerful and then you have a choice as to how you are going to look at the situation. Perspective is everything. 

It comes down to ONE question that we all have to ask ourselves:

Will I let myself be inspired by someone else and what they have or are creating?
