Hurt People Hurt People.

Whoa. I just had an experience. A woman, whom I don’t know personally, left a mean spirited comment on one of my posts on my like page.   I mean, this isn’t the first “I don’t believe in what you do” comment I’ve ever received, but it was definitely the most accusatory. It makes me […]

THE MESS

What I Wish You Knew About Miscarriage.

You don’t get it.  I get that.  You don’t know what to say, how to say it, or when.  I get that, too.  I don’t know what to say half of the time. Let’s just start with a few guidelines: It’s not something I’m going through.  Begin with that.  Don’t say “I’m sorry you’re going […]

Impress.

I had a post planned for today, but then I decided to be live instead. You deserve real.  You deserve raw.  You deserve to not feel like you’re alone. I realized something that hit me like a bus, this morning.  One of the character flaws I’ve worked to overcome, is still present.  It’s different, but […]

Do As I Do.

  Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just guide our kiddos to a life of ease, happiness, and wisdom?  If they would just listen to what we tell them, trust that we know best, and follow advice which we’ve accumulated through our own mistakes? Well… life don’t work like that, yo. We can tell […]

Fit Mom Status.

Do you consider yourself a fit mom? I sometimes feel like “workout warriors” get a bad rap.  I mean, you can post pictures of your trip to Chik-filet and no one bats an eye.  But then you pop up a #gymselfie for a little accountability and everyone’s all like “keep your workouts to yourself, yo!” […]

Refreshing Results.

Have you ever heard of the 3 Day Refresh? You know that feeling of being caught between too many bad decisions and your next decision… Like maybe you want to choose a healthy option but you think “what’s the point, I’ve already done so poorly”? Or you don’t quite know how to jumpstart those better-than-before […]

What Would You Tell Your Daughter?

  When our children come to us with doubts about their own strengths, talents, and purpose…we don’t hesitate to speak love and belief into them, right?   Why then, is it so acceptable for us to live our lives with so many excuses–so many self imposed limitations–holding us back? What are your excuses?  What is […]

What Success Means.

Are you successful? Success is such a loaded word.  It’s one of those words that changes shape in the hands of whomever holds it; a word without any one right and true definition.   The best way to ensure you’re successful is to be very clear on what success means to you. My definition of […]

5 Ways I Became a Better Mom.

  Are you a working mom or a stay at home mom? Everyone is quick to assume that work takes you away from your children/family.  Possibly that’s true for a few hours a day.  But the end result is usually better for everyone…at least, it is if you genuinely love what you do. Insert coaching. I […]

Chasing Your Dreams.

First thing’s first: are you a “cute shoes” kind of girl…or are you more of a “comfort” seeker? Well, insert whatever adjective you need to for this quote to speak to you, but the message is clear: Be you.  Go after your dreams.  The end. My life has changed drastically in the two years since […]
