Got Guilt?

Being a mom got a lot harder 7 years ago. What happened 7 years ago, you may ask? I’ll tell you…


All of a sudden, every mom felt the weight of a thousand suggestions, tips, and DIYs, all designed to give our kids the magical childhood experience they deserve. Now, instead of getting advice by calling up good ol’ grandma, who raised 10 kids on a farm, Pinterest has hundreds of articles and mommy blogs to read that will inevitably give me a good case of mommy guilt about how I’m not giving my kids enough spinach and intentional focused play time.

I’m bringing this back to chiropractic, I promise.

Anyway, my love-hate relationship with Pinterest made me really appreciate this one parenting tip I got last week. Who do I want my kids to be?

I want my kids to be wise. I want them to be people of character. I want them to love people. I want them to see a problem in the world, and figure out how to make a dent.

If I have this in mind, it will affect how I raise them in the day to day.

Now, if you could choose, what do you want your practice to be?

A place of hope? Of joy? Of love? A place where people can learn to trust their innate? An oasis from the stress of their day? A place for miracles?

There are countless blogs, articles, books, and coaches telling you all the things you’re doing wrong, how to get new patients and how to deliver the perfect ROF speech. If you’re starting to get a case of the chiropractor guilt, then take a step back. Make a list of what you want your practice to be at its core. Start there and let that be your guide.
