…means to me that you remember you are multidimensional and completely unique.  Like the seasons of the Earth and the phases of the Moon, you change.

You are Wise, Creative, Sensual, Nurturing, and Ambitious.

You are quiet and bold, reserved and wild, a mother and sexy, angry and loving.

 

And because there is no one like you anywhere, you are going to do life, motherhood, work, and self-care differently from everyone.

 

So why are we always trying to fit ourselves into a box? And why is it that even though we so desperately long to create a life that truly feels like OURS, everything seems to get in the way…

 

We’ve been sold this one-size-fits-all solution to happiness. Like if we can just look like a model, get married, buy a cute house, and have a couple kids, then we’ll be completely fulfilled.

Before I had kids, I devoted years of my life to being at peace with my body and challenging the “body box” that so many women feel pressured to fit into. The freedom and joy I experienced birthed my international program Live More Weigh Less, where thousands of women have found freedom from emotional eating and fallen in love with their unique and powerful bodies.

 

When I had my first child, I felt pressure to fit myself into the “good mom” box. I stopped thinking about what I wanted and focused on how a “good mom” is supposed to act.  As I spent my time running errands, making meals for my family, doing laundry, and making sure my kid was getting everything he needed – all while financially supporting my family – I lost touch with who I was and what I wanted.

 

But the truth is that women are innately powerful, insanely unique, and have these wild, magical, creative souls. We can act like 5 different people in the span of a day. This is what makes us amazing.

 

And when we embrace this range of how we express ourselves, and how unique each of us are, we create a life that is as distinct as our fingerprints. None of us are meant to do motherhood the same way, work the same number of hours, or have the same kind of marriage.  When we try to fit ourselves into a box, we lose the magic of who we are.

 

And on top of that, we’re taught that our job as mothers is to run around like crazy making sure our partners and kids are happy and growing, getting to all of their activities, being fed and loved and fulfilled… while we are left too tired and overwhelmed to do the same for ourselves.

 

And what’s even worse, when we get real about how unfulfilled we are and how disconnected we are from our desires and dreams, we feel guilty for wanting more, and we just put on a happy face and keep going like the “good mother” that we should be, wondering why everyone else seems to be enjoying life while we’re starting to feel so empty inside.

 

After I had kids, everything looked great on the outside: Handsome Doctor Husband, cute curly-haired kids, and me with a flashy Instagram feed and successful business. But on the inside I was dissatisfied, overwhelmed, and deeply unhappy.

 

I’d lost my connection to my soul and a higher power, I didn’t feel nourished, I dreaded getting out of bed in the morning, I was constantly in survival mode, and I had no idea who I was or what was going to make me happy. I honestly felt dead inside.

 

Every time Jonathan and I would talk about our future, my throat would tighten. Something about the life we were creating didn’t feel right to me.

 

I finally started to create space for myself, which allowed me to see the ways I was prioritizing the life I felt like I “should want” instead of the life that was a true expression of who I am.

 

I spent the next year soul searching with the intention of forging a deep connection with my soul and the magic that exists in the world around me. And I just kept asking myself, “Who am I and what do I really want?”

 

This led to our buying a retreat center in Medfield, MA, where women come to connect with who they are and what they truly desire. Seeing this dream become a reality so quickly was the most crazy magical thing that’s ever happened to me.  

Jonathan and I strive to create lives that are aligned with who we are and are always watching out for ways in which we feel pressure to fit into a box. Our house is a bit wild, always filled with flowers and magical objects. I strive to create a space that tells the story of our family and who we are as individuals. Since I no longer do a bunch of stuff I don’t want to do, my days can be a mix of work, rituals, and downtime.  

 

Since I’ve embraced the life that is a true expression of me, I have a better with relationship with my children – they are happier and more settled. Jonathan and I are in sync and laugh way more. I’m not immune to the same ups and downs and challenges as a woman, but there’s a comfort and strength I feel from my life being completely mine. I just feel alive, creative, and whole.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “There is no “right” type of person to benefit from Sarah’s life-altering work; there is no “one” lifestyle or business strategy that it she is better aligned with. I sat in a room of engineers, mathematicians, health coaches, models and actresses, yoga instructors, and so many more. Some say Spirit, some say Divine Feminine… for me I follow God — but in our hearts as we sat in the circle and supported one another, nothing could be more clear than we were all channeling the same life-giving force and working together to change the world.”

    – Chellie
  • “In 2010, my roommate and I won fluke tickets to an NYC bridal expo, where I first met Sarah. Her celebration of pleasure, the body, joy, beauty, and gratitude immediately impacted me. Her emails started to have a HUGE impact on my life right away… even though, she was a weight loss coach! I wasn’t really trying to lose any weight, but her method, which was all about infusing life with so much magic and pleasure that food could be FOOD rather than an escape, still resonated so much. Ultimately, she was teaching women to listen to their bodies, lead with their hearts, and learn from their intuition. She has truly been one of the most profound teachers of my life.”

    – Kim Pendleton
  • “Sarah has a unique way of getting to the heart of what you need versus what you believe you need.”

  • I went to do yoga on the beach today. And what always happens when I do yoga happened - I just wanted to dance. But it felt weird to dance on a public beach, by myself. And this IS A PROBLEM. Why is it that it’s “ok” to run and do yoga, but it’s not ok to move my body in an expressive and joyful way? We’ve been taught that it’s not ok to be joyful and expressive, because when we are, we are really powerful. Our energy and power live in our bodies, and when we move them, they surface. I discovered so much during my 20 minute dance party on the beach. I feel more wild and more me. This is what it looks like to shift from a patriarchy to a matriarchy - to recognize our internalized patriarchy that keeps us small and unexpressed so we can show up as our full selves and change our system on the outside.

Take sometime today to question all of the internalized voices that tell you something is “weird” or “too much”. Can you type them here so we can start to recognize them?

  • I’m about to go on a run. On a Sunday. On vacation 😳. Running, or any movement, used to be coded in my emotional system as punishment. As a way to take away things that are bad about me. So I rebelled by not moving. When we’re in a rebellion relationship with something, whether it’s working out, food or money or anything... we are either “not doing something” or “giving in”. Neither of these options is supportive.

So I’ve been working on finding my unique relationship to movement. What’s my “sacred third”? What’s MY why? Not the cultures or my inner child’s why.

I’ve started working with @hereiskayla doing personal, spiritual movement therapy, and it’s been amazing. At our last session she said, “remember, movement is about adding energy and magic to your body”. I could feel that in my bones. I could visualize the energy of the ocean and land and the palm trees flowing into my system and churning all the magic I already have within.

Is moving on a Sunday on vacations comfortable? No. But no longer is staying where I am.

What does moving towards growth look like for you? Tell me below.

  • MERCURY RETROGRADE TOMORROW, which I love because all of the sudden everyone’s into the Sacred Feminine (which to me means we accept that all things are connected) and even the non-believers see their lives start to present some interesting and well timed challenges 💁🏼‍♀️.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When Mercury appears like it’s going “backwards” in the sky, it’s an opportunity to shift our focus from external to internal. It’s a time to be flexible with technology and travel and to expect some miscommunications... but a great opportunity to get clear on what your intuition is telling you, to stay off your phone and embrace a slower pace. As always, I’m not an astrologer, so check out my dearest @jennracioppi for the best mercury retrograde guidance.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll be in Florida with the fam on school vacay so nothing can go wrong 😬.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Good luck!

  • Being in a lifelong monogamous relationship with one person is, well, weird.  Jonathan and I met when we were 21 and 22. I was a pearl wearing, collar popping, party planner and he was the starting something-or-other on the football team (i’ve never been much of a sports fan). For years we believed the lies that relationships don’t need work. That if we were meant to be together then we would want to spend time with each other, easily feel connected and want to have sex. And talking about our relationship or confronting that we were growing apart meant that our relationship was inherently broken and we were destined for divorce.

I was also convinced that Jonathan wasn’t going to like or accept who I was becoming as I started getting the majority of my life experience in my 20s and 30s. When we met I wasn’t even close to knowing who I was and yet when I finally figured it out, I felt shame for changing, and hid who I was for a long time.

Everyday in my work I hear from women who are so confused as to why her marriage is falling apart. Who are convinced that they are not “allowed” to change within their relationships, and that their partners would never agree to working on it.

What Jonathan and I have learned is that change is the rule and that the only way for our marriage to work, is to work on it. So today, book a time this weekend to talk with your partner about what’s working and what’s not, re-introduce yourself and share your dreams. Be active in love. Happy Valentines Day. 📷 2006 & 2020 by @jennymoloney
