مقدمه ی کتاب
Come Slay with Me
Are you tired of working your ass off and still feeling like you should be doing more?
Does the negative voice in your head constantly mouth off to the tune “When are you going to get your act together, lady?” Do other mothers seem to glide through life on ice skates while you tuck your muffin top into your pants and pray you’ll make it through Tuesday without losing your ever-loving mind?
If so, you picked up the right book.
The time has come to embark on the next chapter of your life—away from the illusion that you’re never doing enough and toward the deeply held belief that you’ve always been more than enough. Navigating this messy world as a human, woman, and mother is not easy. That’s a fact. However, much to your horror but soon your relief, I have ten years of research and twenty years of personal experiences (ahem, mistakes) that indicate you might be making life a lot harder than it has to be. Yes, I just said that, and it’s time for you to believe it.
It’s easy to blame your micromanaging boss, the hyperactive PTA president, your son’s teenage antics, or your partner’s missing sensitivity chip for the stress and pressure that’s been building for years, but they’re not the root cause. The demands of a busy life are taxing, but they don’t exhaust your soul. It’s the warped belief that you can and should be doing more that’s keeping you down.
How do I know? Because I was a card-carrying member of that club for years. From the time I was a teenager to well after I gave birth, I suffered at the hands of my own unrealistic expectations, inability to say no, and relentless pursuit of making my life appear as though it was under control. To glance at the trappings of success in my life—the titles, the trophies, the Today show appearances—you might assume I was always free from the nagging doubts and fears that torment so many women, especially mothers, around the world. But there’s more to my story than superficial achievements. If you look beneath the surface and beyond the optical delusions that blindly impress most people, you’ll find a very different narrative, one I’m not embarrassed but proud to share with you in hopes it sparks your own heroic journey toward eradicating what’s holding you back.
I spent two decades collecting external signs of success, not because I wanted to fill the empty spaces on my bookshelf, but because I needed to fill a hole inside me. (Spoiler alert: there’s a difference.) My emptiness stemmed from feeling less than for the majority of my life. And while my world looked firmly pressed and buttoned-up on the outside, I was always running, always chasing, rarely satisfied, and I never felt good enough. But I silenced my struggles and, as a result, handed my strength and self-worth to a dragon that raged inside me.
Perhaps you’ve done the same.
