The Purpose Show

Mom life: we’re surrounded with the message that it’s the tired life, the no-time-for-myself life, the HARD life. And while it is hard and full of lots of servitude, the idea that motherhood means a joy-less life is something I’m passionate about putting a stop to. I’m on a mission to help you stop counting down the minutes till bedtime (at least most days). I want you to stop cleaning up after your kids’ childhood, and start being present for it - start enjoying it. I believe in John 10:10, that we are called to abundant life, and I know mothers are NOT excluded from that promise. Join me in conversations about simplicity, minimalism, and lots of other good stuff that leads to a life of less for the sake of enjoying more in motherhood. I’m Allie Casazza, and this is The Purpose Show.

I get asked about capsule wardrobes A LOT.

People watch my Instagram Stories or see photos of me on the blog and say things like, "I see you wearing lots of different things. It seems like you have a lot of clothes. How do you deal with that?" So, I just wanted to address it directly!

I am a person who loves getting dressed. I love clothes, my wardrobe and having options. Being creative in this way adds to my joy! For me, that is a part of an abundant life. Choosing my clothes each morning brings more joy into my daily life.

Let this episode be a message of freedom for you. Let this be permission to make minimalism work for you and bring you joy. Let this give you permission to let go of the junk that is just not serving you, that is holding you back, and taking up your time.

Let this be permission to have what brings you incredible joy and makes you love your life and your house more. I hope this makes sense and that this clears up some of your questions!

In This Episode, Allie discusses:

  • What a capsule wardrobe is.
  • Allie’s journey from living with a minimal wardrobe to realizing how much joy clothes and putting outfits together brings her.
  • Minimalism doesn’t have to be suppressive.
  • What is your “WHY” behind wanting to be a minimalist? Answering this will help you determine if something brings joy to your life, or not.
  • How Allie and her husband decorate their home so that it feels cozy and modern.
  • Permission to have what brings you incredible joy and makes you love your life and your house more.

Thanks so much for joining me! I’m so excited to have you on this journey with me!

Words can be an incredible way of bringing positivity into your life and the life of your children.

I’ve always been drawn to words. I can remember as a child and now as an adult looking back and realizing how special this was. I literally had a relationship with words. I’d make up stories. I’d take classic fairy tales and rewrite them into my own versions, I just loved being surrounded by words.

Words have always just been a really powerful passion in my life.

The other side of words are that they can slice deep, especially in marriage. Any flaw you have, is magnified 1000% in marriage. So, while words have been a crazy positive gift for me, they’ve also been a weakness.

However, it is most important to me to use words in a positive way. Words have shaped some circumstances of my life, and in today’s episode I want to share a how effective words have been in changing the behavior of my children.

Purposeful Info from the Show:

  • The effect words have on you in both a positive and negative way.
  • How easy it is to complain and use negative words to describe things, and why it’s important to switch your words to the positive.
  • Why it is important to speak positive words over your children.
  • In the beginning it may be uncomfortable to speak positive words or scriptures over your children, but find a place or a way that works for you. Allie shares how she does it.
  • Changing the words that you speak to and over your children has the power to completely change their behavior.
  • Tips and suggestions on where to find positive affirmations and scriptures, and how you can store them on your phone.

Having a morning ritual can completely change the flow of your day. Some morning rituals are all about productivity, getting things done before the kids wake-up, and others are more about self-care.

There is no right or wrong when you create your routine, it all depends on what season of life that you are in.

My morning ritual began when my husband was still working outside the home, as a way to build and grow my business. Since that time so much has changed in my life, I had a period of time where I’d jump out of bed and get started on my tasks for the day, but I am at a point now where being able to deeply focus on myself and self-care will be more beneficial to my day.

One last note, I used to be a night owl, but I knew how much more purposeful my days would be if I began rising her earlier. It was a process, but it was worth putting the effort in to switch to a early bird.

Purposeful Info from the Show:

  • Tips on how Allie began her morning routine, and how it has shifted with the seasons of her life
  • The detailed morning routine Allie goes through each morning, to make her day more focused and purposeful

  • How Allie’s morning routine helps her overcome one of her biggest weaknesses

  • Ideas for ways to fit in more reading on a daily basis

In today’s episode, we’re going to go deep into how we can treat our body with more love and gratitude.

It is common for many moms to not even acknowledge or care for themselves, and I believe we need to change that. We need to be grateful for all of the things ours amazing bodies can do.

The size of our bodies is unimportant, what matters is that you are caring for it in a way that makes you feel good inside and out.

I hope you’ll join me, and listen as I call for all women to love the bodies that God gave them, more!

Purposeful Info from the Show:

  • Why and How we should stop pushing our bodies to morph into something they’re not.
  • Have you ever shifted your focus from what your body IS from what it isn’t?
  • How we can start acting out of love for our bodies.
  • Allie shares a personal story about how she struggled with a negative mindset because of the foods she was eating.
  • Life is all about balance-- the good and the bad.
  • A 2-step process that can help you bring forth more gratitude for your bodies.
  • Let this be your “trick” diet, that you are just really freaking grateful for your body.

Happy New Year!

In this episode, I’m taking you deep inside the exact goal setting process that I use to make and achieve massive goals.

 

I frequently get asked how I am able to achieve so much in such a short amount of time, but there’s no secret. Anybody can make their dreams a reality, you just need to set goals the “right way.” Then, begin taking action to achieve whatever it is you want, by being a woman of intent.

 

So, I’d love it you’d join me with a cup of coffee (or tea if that’s your thing) and enjoy this (MY FIRST!) episode of The Purpose Show.
