Because mom guilt is an unnecessary part of motherhood.
Moms experience mom guilt day in and day out, and many moms believe it's just a part of being a mom. But it's not.
Mom guilt is an UNNECESSARY evil that we put up with and don't even question it. It prevents us from living while parenting and we allow it to control our happiness. It doesn’t always manifest the way we might expect it to, so here are some of the ways you can tell if you’re feeling mom guilt:
Can't think of anything that brings you joy other than your head finally hitting your pillow
Feel yourself looking back at when you weren't a parent with longing
Lack of fulfillment
Increasing stress levels
Snapping at your kids for just being kids, because you're overstimulated
Feeling resentment toward your partner because “they have time to do the things they enjoy”
Pick up something that catches your eye in Target, then put it back because you feel like you shouldn't spend money on yourself
Not sure who to call when you feel lonely because your friendships have been neglected
Never feel like you're a "good enough" mom
None of these are a requirement to being a good mom. And ALL of these are holding you back from being joyful in your journey.

I'm Gillian, and mom guilt is in my past.
I help moms prioritize themselves without mom guilt. I believe in nourishing the unique person each mom is outside of motherhood, because she was someone before she was a mom and that person is still there.
As a stay at home mom, I know the loneliness, loss of identity and a sense of overwhelm that comes with the belief that we need to do “all the things” for everyone. I also know that I am worthy of joy, purpose and self assurance outside of motherhood. “All the things” can wait, because my happiness can’t, and shouldn’t. And neither should yours.
I’m married to my best friend and we love introducing my daughters to new experiences that we can enjoy together. You can often find me volunteering for various causes, running multiple fantasy football leagues and playing games both with and without my kids, because sometimes Mama needs “me time”, and that’s a good thing.
