YOU WANT TO PRIORITIZE YOURSELF AND YOUR DREAMS ALONGSIDE SPECIAL NEEDS MOTHERHOOD, BUT…

You’re just not sure it’s possible. You’ve got real constraints and more to manage than most of the moms you know. The advice you find in magazines, books, and blogs never seems like it applies to you or (or your child).

Even if it were possible, you don’t know where you would find the energy to make it happen. The last thing you need is another item on your to do list to feel guilty about never getting done.

So, you’ve become resigned. You’re surviving. You’ve decided that’s good enough until your child is doing better or life gets a little less stressful. One day you’ll make time for yourself and your dreams. Just not today.

But deep down, you know that this just isn’t working. You’re acting like you’re the least important person in your life. You’re exhausted. And you feel isolated, lonely, and terrified that you’ll never actually make yourself a priority again.

What you really want is to be able to say HELL YES to your life right NOW.

You’ve got lots of people and resources dedicated to helping your child thrive. But who looks out for you? You want someone who cares about your self-care and who supports your dreams. The dreams that go beyond being a mom, case manager, and advocate for your remarkable child. You want someone to show you the way back to yourself and to feeling fulfilled, so you can show your kids how to go after your dreams no matter what.


WELCOME, FRIEND

Lauren BellonI’m Lauren Bellon and I help moms connect with their own dreams to find their purpose.

And I do it without ignoring the very real demands and constraints of special needs parenting. Because I know you can be a fierce advocate, a good mom, AND create a life you actually love. That you can feel good, laugh more, stress less, and dust off some of your own dreams right now. You can stop putting yourself and your aspirations on hold.
 
I know because I’ve been where you are. I know what it’s like to juggle endless appointments, therapies, and interventions, and to feel like there’s never enough of you to go around. To feel like the only option is to just survive, get through the day, and pretend you don’t want something more for yourself. To roll your eyes when people tell you that you need to take care of yourself, thinking, “You have no idea what my life is like.”

I felt so resigned, lonely, and trapped. And I finally had to admit to myself that I wanted something more than this. I had no idea what or how, but I needed to make some changes.

Now I’m fulfilling lifelong dreams. I’m writing professionally. I’ve created a fulfilling career as a life coach for other moms. I have the flexibility I need to meet my son’s intense needs, manage all the advocacy on my plate, connect with my daughter, AND I feel like I exist as an individual.

I’ve found my own purpose and fulfillment by helping other families of kids with special needs. In doing so, I’ve created a life that feels good to me. Even in the midst of the periodic crisis and chaos that accompanies my son’s disability.

I’d be honored to help you do the same.


IMAGINE THIS…

Three months from now, you have a vision for yourself beyond motherhood. And a clear plan to help you realize that vision.

You’re laughing more and stressing less. You handle guilt, fear, worry, and sadness in a way that leaves room for feeling good and taking care of yourself. You feel encouraged and confident. Inspiration has replaced resignation.

You’ve found your way back to yourself. And discovered a woman even more incredible than you remembered.

Getting more support, and actually pursuing your own dreams might feel unattainable right now. Here’s the thing, though. It’s completely possible.

But it’s really hard to get there without perspective, encouragement, and support.

Thankfully, you don’t have to do it on your own. You can have all the support and perspective you need when we work together one on one.


A 1:1 coaching program with me is designed to help moms like you:

  • Stop acting like you are the least important person in your life.
  • Learn to give yourself the permission to prioritize yourself.
  • Explore and create your own dreams alongside the real constraints and responsibilities of special needs parenting.
  • Handle feelings like guilt, grief, anger, fear, and sadness so they don’t stop you from living a juicy life.
  • Be a fierce advocate, committed mom, AND a remarkable woman living out her own dreams.
