…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.”

LET’S CONNECT ON INSTAGRAM

  • I really want you to know that Magic can fit into your normal life.  I want you to know that Tarot Cards can validate what your heart knows is true about your work in the world but your head is arguing with.  I want you to know that the stars and the moon can be a great therapist when you have no idea why you feel so crazy.  I want you to know that blessing your coffee can give you even more energy.  I want you to know that calling in your ancestors before you dive into your finances can help you stay calm.  It's not weird, its practical.  And the more we own the parts of us that are drawn to the magic, the more clarity, power and confidence we feel.

  • Raise your hand if you feel like you’re constantly being told to tone it down 🙋🏼‍♀️ to blend in 🙋🏾‍♀️ to put others first 🙋🏽‍♀️? Did you know that’s just a tool the Patriarchy uses to make us pliable? To make us push-around-able?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let’s heal from the brainwashing and tell ourselves, be BIGGER, be LOUDER, stand OUT.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be YOU unfiltered. Buy the big sunnies, speak up at the meeting, dye your hair pink, be honest about how you feel.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Give less f&$ks. K?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lmk below how you’re going to stand out today.

P.S. I know this filter makes me look like a crazy body-builder. But I’m just going with it 😬.
  • I was so tired tonight. I’m bleeding and I spent all day with Marshall and we had such a great day, but you know, mothering takes a lot of energy even on the best days.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I felt myself wanting to go to the phone and zone out while my kids watched their TV show. I tasked @jonathanbrajtbord with getting something for dinner on his way home and I was ready to go into sloth mode.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then the rain started and it was warm and it smelled of wet grass and steam rising off the patio stones and I felt called to remember the magic of a rainy summer evening, and one can’t feel magic when scrolling on a phone.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I turned it off and found myself in the garden with my face turned towards the sky just being in awe that water comes from the sky. I picked thyme, chives and scallions in the rain, came inside and chopped them up. Found some sausage in the freezer and cracked some eggs our chickens laid today into the skillet and called Jonathan off the dinner hunt.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was still tired, but I was felt calm and happy. Though the kids were a wreck at dinner and ended up eating chicken nuggets and PB&J 🤷🏼‍♀️, we were in our lives tonight. And it all started with turning off the phone and looking for magic in my world instead of someone else’s.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We don’t have to delete this app, or label it or anything, just make sure you spend some time in your life. That’s where the magic is. Not here.

  • The sun moves from wild Leo to organized Virgo on Friday. To me, this is the most abrupt zodiac transition of the year where our energy swings from one extreme to another. For me, this is the last weekend of summer and time to prep for the school year to start. Marshall is going to kindergarten and I can’t even write the word without crying 😭.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All I want is a life well lived which means I’m constantly looking at if my intentions lined up with my reality.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I started this summer wanting to really soak it all in. Although this is our 3rd summer in Massachusetts (SF summers are cold and cloudy 🤨) the first summer we spent the whole time unpacking and last summer I had a newborn.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are my wins: lots of time in the lake and Georgian Bay. We made a lot of fire and s’mores, I spent a week in England on a spiritual pilgrimage, Marshall learned to swim, I hosted 19 people for #camphawthorn.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Things I wish I’d done better: Gone to the ocean more (I planned a trip this weekend to squeeze it in!), read a book, gone out to dinner in the city and eaten outside, built an outdoor shower.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
None of these things are getting me down but it’s so important to reflect on what’s working and what’s not in our life so we can really LIVE in alignment with our dreams and make adjustments.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The question to ask yourself is WHY you didn’t get to those things? And can you change the behavior so in the future you can make it happen?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Below, tell me a win and a “wish I had” and WHY it didn’t happen, so you can make it happen next summer. 😘

  • ✨Wish your husband would step up?✨ Yesterday in my Moonday email I wrote about a topic that has me really fired up.  I see so many women standing up for women’s rights, showing up to marches, donating to planned parenthood and really moving the cause forward, thank you, this is important and needed. I see these same women not show up with the same feminist fire at home. At home, they bend over backwards, take everything on when their (male) partner does a fraction of the work it takes to actually run a household, essentially perpetuating the same dynamics we’re fighting outside the house. Many of us are so brainwashed by society, that we can’t even see that we’re doing it.

It’s ok, this is all new territory, but to me, feminism has to start at home if we are ever going to see any permanent changes on a global scale.

I’m specifically talking to woman/man couples because the dynamics that I see play out in this arrangement, I don’t see in my friends and clients who are in same sex marriages. Obviously every couple is different, but the issues I’m talking about today don’t really have to do with marriage, who earns more or carries children as much as they have to do with cultural, traditional gender roles.

So if you are a woman who lives with a man, please read this. Especially if you OWN the house together and REALLY ESPECIALLY if you have kids. Just go for the link in profile and click on “latest blog post”. Then come back and lmk your thoughts.

I snapped this pic of @jonathanbrajtbord yesterday at our first “family business meeting” (you’ll see what I mean when you read my post) inspired by @katenorthrup And @mikejwatts Who meet every Monday. Jonathan and I don’t run a business together, but we do run the business of our lives together and it deserves dedicated time.

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts back here about changing your job description in your home.
