Evolution Mama is a Holistic Lifestyle brand designed to help busy, stay at home moms go from Frazzled, Stressed & Overwhelmed to Peaceful, Happy & Productive. Through my signature group and private coaching programs, planning products, workshops and events, I teach the “How” behind organizing your life, so you can finally have more time for the self-care and relaxation you crave.
As busy moms, keeping our lives running as smoothly as possible - while also having time to relax and do things we enjoy- can seem like a mythical and simply unattainable idea! However, planning and organizing how we spend our time throughout the day, prioritizing tasks and activities, and managing home, helps us keep the chaos at bay (for the most part), our homes cleaned (well, at least livable), healthy meals on the table and most of all... Keeps us SANE and on top of things! - which in turn allows us to get the most important things done and have more for ourselves, even when it feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day!
Hey! I’m Cordelia…
I'm a busy Mama of 5, Inspirational Speaker, Holistic Life Coach, and Self-Care enthusiast for busy moms.
After giving birth to my youngest son, I found myself depressed, overwhelmed, stressed out, frazzled and completely resentful. Each day that passed, I lost hope that I could accomplish any of my “pre-mommy"dreams and live the life I wanted to live. At every turn, I found a reason why I could NOT do something- whether it was money, time, caring for my children... You name it - I saw it as an obstacle. I was beyond overwhelmed, and at my lowest point, I felt helpless, exhausted and if I could be completely honestly, I was tired of taking care of everyone else while feeling neglected, worn down and discouraged. I was stuck emotionally and controlled by fear and full of anxiety about my future.
And to add to all of that, I was gaining weight and starting to get physically sick.
Day in and day out, I carried the burden of bitterness, hurt and anger of a failed marriage and my sudden “status” as a single mother. I was hoping and praying for a change - just longing for my life to be different. I wanted an opportunity to show up so I can just take it...and start but here I was, on the coldest day of the winter, faced with a dilemma. I had no money, no food in my refrigerator, and my car had just been taken from me. Stranded with my 5 children, my youngest was still a baby, I packed up what I could fit in my bag and went to a shelter. That was it! I had made the biggest decision of my life for my safety and my sanity and this decision truly changed the trajectory of my path, as a woman and as a mother.
I had to make major decisions in a short amount of time. I was starting my life over from scratch and I only had 90 days to do it. 90 days! 90 days to get my life back on track and figure out how to create a life that resembled what I really wanted. 90 days to find a place to live, where I could create that home life I dreamed of and a place my children could be comfortable in. 90 days to rediscover who I was and get back to being my best self - to truly be ME!
Those 90 days forced me to be very organized and aware of how I used my available time, so I could get the most important things done, while taking care of both my children’s needs and tending to my own needs.
And I did just that. Every. Single. Day.
How, you ask? I took the time to find out what I really wanted in life and what was most important. I used the answers to those questions to create goals and guide my monthly, weekly and daily tasks. I started deliberately taking time for self-care to address and “de-clutter” my own emotional challenges. I created systems for meal planning, budgeting and managing my home on a daily basis!
The techniques I used to manage my time and organize my life, allowed me to go back to school and become a certified Integrative Health Coach, start a blog, homeschool my children and build a business that I love based on my passions and talents.
Now I get up and start my days with intention and joy. I have direction, clarity and purpose, and I am able to get the important things done, while having plenty of time for self-care, relaxation and creating changer through my passions - without guilt.
I'm a firm believer that as moms, we must find OUR way to be the best version of our selves, and by planning and managing our time- we are able to make ourselves a priority and find time to do more of the things we love- all while mastering this thing called #MomLife!
Now my life is fulfilling, balanced and productive- not just busy- and I am on a journey to help other moms do the same. Let's walk this journey of peace and productivity together. Start Here.
