Choose YOU showed up at just the RIGHT time for me! I had been struggling with feeling overwhelmed for quite some time. And honestly not sure what to do about it. Like most women, I had been juggling so many commitments and not taking time for me.
Choose YOU brought clarity and empowered me to take a break, refocus and enjoy my life. This workshop spoke truth and I appreciate Martine for helping me realize I deserve to be a priority.Sara Cline
Choose You came at just the right time in my personal journey. I had spent the previous 2 years of my life starting my own marketing business and seeking the answer to what my purpose was at the cost of myself and my personal well-being. What I thought I was supposed to do wasn’t making me happy or fulfilled. Instead, it was making me over-busy and tired, not allowing my family and friends to see and experience my best “me.” Martine and the Choose You program specifically spoke to my exact needs at that time: that it’s okay to choose myself over my work and demands on my time, and that a healthy balance can be achieved. My favorite exercise was the 7-Day Jumpstart, where I was able to claim my daily gratitude, me time, and affirmations. This has led to a new daily practice of starting my day off on the right foot of affirmation, reflection in the morning, and a better “me” headed out into the world. I am endlessly grateful that Martine has followed her calling and is helping women just like me reclaim themselves! I would highly recommend the Choose You journey to any woman who struggles with choosing themselves. It is a game changer!Krista Stillwell
“I’ve spent a lot of my days productive, but frustrated because it seemed like all I ever did was check things off of my endless to-do list. The experiences that Martine shares and the perspective that she builds are valuable reminders that it is, in fact, OKAY (and maybe even better for everyone…) to love our life and enjoy our time (even *gasp* when the to-do list isn’t done!).”Kara Clouse
Choose You has allowed me to Choose Me and to finally start putting myself first (or at least in the mix) without feeling guilty!!
Since doing the 5 Steps in Choose You I feel a difference in me! I have been able to pick out a few things that I really like to do and make sure that I spend 20-30 minutes each day taking pleasure in doing these things.
I feel more motivated to take care of me and to ask for help when I need it. At our house I do 98% of everything (cooking, grocery shopping, bills, cleaning, laundry, you get it) and this is on top of working full-time and doing my Direct Sales business. I have reached out to my husband and he is helping me more and more all the time. I have learned to ask, “Do you want to fold the clothes or do the dishes,” rather than just say, “Can you help me” and he takes this better too! Yay!!
Change doesn’t happen overnight and I am for sure a work in progress. I was doing good on the two things I picked for the 21 Days to Form a Habit and fell off at about day 12 but 3 days later I jumped right back on and it’s going good!!!
Thank you so much Martine for creating Choose You and I look forward to the changes ahead!!!Kay Jacobsen
Choose You came into my life at the right time! I have been working on “finding myself” for a few years now but not really knowing what to do. I felt like I kept going back to the same routine/pattern. Going through the steps of Choose You, I’ve learned how and when to make time for ME! The biggest thing for me was dealing with the GUILT I felt! Learning how to change my mindset was a weight lifted off my shoulders! After going through all the steps of Choose You, I feel like I am living my life how I would like to live it!!! Happy, better mindset and loving “my time”!!

Hey all!! So, it took me a bit to post in this group, or “put myself/stuff out there”. However, I would like to share a story with you. It’s about PUSHING THROUGH THE GUILT.
I live my life as a mom, wife, caregiver, student. I have spent 5 days away from my husband and kiddos in the past 5 years. If I do mot have my kiddos than I’m with my husband and visa versa. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my kids and my husband is best friend. BUT, the first ti.e u went away from them was this past February when I went to South Carolina. It was a LIFE changing “work” event. But I had a full blown panic attack at the least expected time. Then got stuck due to bad weather.
I was invited to a Kenny Chesney concert by my sister in-law. I didn’t want to go. Not because I don’t like concerts, or the genre, or the venue, etc. I “didn’t” want to go because of the GUILT I felt.
I DESERVED to go. I SHOULD go. I WANT to go. BUT, what will the kids do, my husband do, what will they eat (I HATE cooking!), what will I have to play catch up on when I get back….the thoughts raced through my head faster than I can have a typical 1 THOUGHT! So I convinced myself I shouldn’t go. “It’s not fair to go have fun when my husband or kids can’t “.
THANKS TO MARTINE AND CHOOSE YOU….i DID choose me, and I went! I had a BLAST! I also found upon return that the kids were alive, my husband had done laundry (who’d have thought that was a thing! Lol), and that I had NOTHING but school work to do!
So I am here to say: No matter WHAT you tell yourself, or try to tell yourself, life is short and you should do it….PUSH THROUGH THE GUILT, allow yourself to have fun, and ENJOY it! Because YOU ARE WORTH IT!
I still have work to do and a road ahead but CHOOSING ME was a wonderful idea and I owe it to Martine Nash Williams and my inner strength!Amy Clark
