“That same sun that warms your heart will suck the good earth dry….”The Indigo Girls
Our children are our most coveted treasures; yet, raising them is one of the most difficult aspects of living….a series of impossible challenges that both enlighten and deplete us almost simultaneously. Parenting is HARD WORK!!
In light of this inevitable truth, I’ve spent a lot of time reflecting on the gift of being a parent AND a parent educator focused on family success. Likewise, I was recently posed with the question… what is THE ONE THING you can’t NOT do with your life?? This is it my friends….RIGHT HERE in this space. Some people would label it a “Calling”; whereas, I perceive it more so as my SOUL’s PURPOSE. Something I WAS BORN to do.
Although I never really “categorized” myself as a “teacher” I certainly am one! I’m at my best when helping others….it’s my absolute sweet spot. I am passionate about being an extraordinary parent, coaching & mentoring, imparting wisdom, empowering moms to activate and step into their POWER, and MOST OF ALL providing practical solutions to the myriad of problems plaguing families each and everyday! Giving abundantly to others is integral to who I am as a person, parent and professional. I’m most at home when I am working intimately and connecting deeply with others; yet, this requires a level of vulnerability that can be unnerving for even the most seasoned professional. So…..here I am, being BRAVE with my life. I hope that somehow, in someway, it helps you be BRAVE with yours.
It’s been over a decade since this journey began and it’s finally coming to fruition……who am I to stop myself ANY LONGER from a calling that has lingered in my bones for nearly ever? My ultimate hope is that this space becomes a sanctuary for your soul. Bringing you a positive perspective, insight, and inspiration as well as a cozy place to pause and catch your breath from the chaos of “all the things” that tug at your time on the daily.
May the love-filled lessons you find here, scattered amidst the backdrop of an ordinary life, gently nudge you to EMBRACE your current place, enable you to “find your footing” and move yourself and your family forward with INTENTION. This is a place to nourish your spirit, grow your heart and mind, and most certainly to BLOOM into the person and the parent you are meant to BECOME.
I hope you’ll commit to joining me on this journey of reflection, discovery and connectedness. Pour your favorite cup of pleasure and pull up a cozy seat. This has been a long time coming and we have miles to travel my friends….
The little voice..
.Sometimes it’s critically important to listen to that little voice inside urging you to “pay attention”.
Especially when it pertains to your kids….ALWAYS lean in to its whispers.
