…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.”

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

  • Got to date night an hour early to hang with these friends. I ended up doing a reading for the bartender. It’s ok to be Magic in public. @moonchildtarot
  • I’ve been really in it with my body recently. My intention for 2019 was RESTORE and of course when you set an intention, all.the.things show up to teach you what you need to know. The major thing I noticed was how my body counter balances my overactive mind by being weighed down and extremely sedentary. It’s like I was pushing in so many areas my body was like, “let me do you a favor and just not move.” In Whole Woman we talk about how when part of us is out of alignment (like my work was) it negatively effects our other parts (like our body, soul and relationships). I’ve been rewiring so much of my workaholic nature so my body has space. My sister @alpine_start_fitness helped me to create a muscular foundation. @alissaraehill has been meeting with me for 20 min everyday to do what I can only explain as spiritual, movement therapy. Today my cousin @melrobbinslive encouraged me to go to @taramorris ‘s class @hypstudiomass with her and it was the first intense movement I’ve done since I became pregnant with Marshall. If she’d asked me a month ago, I would’ve said HELL NO. But today my body said yes, I feel like a new person.  I’m slowly changing in so many ways and this felt like a big win for me.

My advice if you don’t want to move is: explore your beliefs, get support, start small and pay attention to when your body asks to move.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve told myself “you should have this figured out by now”, but I’m in a new phase of life, with completely new things to figure out. My body is my doorway to incredible growth. Every time I’m on the doorstep to great things, I have to create a better relationship with my body. I’m finally showing up for the assignment and I can’t wait to see what’s on the other side of the door.
  • Jonathan has been gone for 7 days. SEVEN. I’m ready to move to Costa Rica for a month without my kids BUT the week was much more enjoyable because I got to co-parent with my Mom. It looks like she’s here to take care of the kids, but I know she’s really been here to take care of me, and that is just the best. Here’s Elisabeth (Queenie) with Hazel Elisabeth. PS. @lisaclarkjenksdesign is officially taking requests for interior styling work! Check out her feed 👉🏼 @lisaclarkjenksdesign. Proud to be in a family of creative entrepreneurs.

  • My oldest turns 5 today.  His birthday is always so special to me because it also marks the day I became a Mother. For the first few years of Marshall’s life, I didn’t know if I would ever feel that joy that women always talked about when becoming a mother. I didn’t feel connected to him. I was overwhelmed by his energy and noise. I was holding our finances, the home, him and my own becoming and didn’t have enough calm to really BE with him. But we worked on it. We went to therapy, spent lots of 1:1 time together. I met with intuitive healers and did my own work. Moving to the country, having more family support and developing a 50/50 relationship with Jonathan shifted so much. And Marshall and I are such a pair now. Deep connection, so much laughter and lots of talks about how the world works and exploring his own intuitive nature. Of course he drives me crazy still, but we work it out. We GET each other. And I know I’m the best woman for the job of guiding him to his own greatness. This is the miracle of all miracles for me. So if you are struggling, work on it. Spend the time and the money to work with experts. It can be so much better and things will change if you focus on it. I’m looking forward to a day of reflecting on Marshall and the past 5 years during this New Moon.

  • I thought everything would feel easier when I was working less. I pushed for so long, and when I wasn’t pushing, I was pushing out babies. How could this not feel like a huge relief? But I forgot about the healing. The feelings don’t go away with the situation. Just like when we leave bad a relationship, we aren’t getting re-wounded, but the wounds are still there from years of turmoil, and when we are no longer numbing or in survival mode, we feel it all. My life is not hard. My life is so blessed and I am still healing, because that is the cycle of creation just like the seasons. We grow and push (spring), we are creative (summer), we release (fall) and then we are still, rest, wait and heal (winter). So just remember it’s ok to be in winter and it doesn’t mean you aren’t grateful for your life or living in alignment. Today is the Dark Moon, take some time to allow the season you’re in to take over you. Especially if it’s winter.
