Ali has reached the next level! How does she do it?
How the “worst” 90-minutes of my day turned into the best.
Over the past few months, I’ve been called deeper into motherhood.
Re-focusing on my kids and their needs has called me deeper into my own self-awareness, seeing all the places I needed my own re-parenting.
Places in my self I had ignored in the name of independence and strength made their way to the forefront of my awareness.
Today, I am far more vulnerable, my heart is tender and I feel more alive.
This morning, I got to get both kids ready for school, drive them each and drop them (Noah is shadowing at a Waldorf school we are considering for him for next year) before returning home to meditate with Michael Jacobs and start my work day.
I feel so grateful to be able to enjoy this simple pleasure that in the past I didn’t really savor. In the past, if I “had” to do it because their dad wasn’t available, I could only think of the 90 minutes of “lost” productivity, but now I realize this may be the best 90 minutes of my day.
I’m curious – what’s one thing you used to resist that now you love? And what shifted it?
She wouldn’t be Skankatron 3000B without a daily
affirmation ew overshare:
I don’t know this woman, but I love seeing her and her baby nursing on the cover of Elle.
A little known fact about me is that I breastfed each of my kids for 5 years.
I am most proud of this because I did it through moving cross country, working at one of the best law firms in the country, starting my own law practice, getting divorced and building my first million dollar business.
I stood for the rights of breastfeeding mother’s as a legal advocate, met many of my best friends and built healthy children.
It’s so good to see the world waking up to what’s “normal” and optimizing for more of what we want.
Today, I am once again reconnected w my motherhood more than I have been since my days as a breastfeeding mama and I am re-awakening to what matters most. More on that another time …
“Another time” will soon be coming your way. Yes, in the grand tradition of Ryan Swain and Michael Ellsberg, Shantitown is creating a global revolution … from her RV! Ali and her three children will be taking her grift on the road:
Four years ago, I began to have a dream of a caravan, touring around the country, spreading the message of personal sovereignty, love and liberation (financial + emotional, spiritual and physical).
Some dreams take longer than others to come to fruition. But if you hold onto the vision and keep taking baby steps, you will eventually see your dream realized.
Today, another step is happening. A big step. We are ready to wrap the RV and prepare it for the first leg of the tour under the guidance, leadership and direction of Lotus Sattva.
If the old raunch’s son is hostile now, just wait til he spends summer vacation cramped in an RV with Lotus Sunblossom, Mom & Fozzie doing god knows what, and suitcases stuffed with weed & sex toys.
