As I’m on the journey of self-reflection and intention, a couple of questions continue to cross my mind.

  1.       Am I creating content worth sharing?
  2.       Is there a clear message around WHY you should follow and read?

Since I haven’t formally made my intentions clear, allow me to explain…

It is my intention to share authentic, real things with you in the hopes of inspiring you. A wife and momma first, an influencer second—my goal is to inspire and connect people from all kinds of industries, businesses, and communities.

I want give a space for creativity and collaboration. We’ve all got thoughts and ideas in our minds…Let this be our space….I’ll start the conversation, and you’re encouraged to participate in the dialogue. Your voice matters. This is the space for your voice to be heard. I want to give an outlet for other working moms and dads to promote themselves, find support and just be able to connect with other like-minded individuals.

I remember as a new working mom, I found solace in the community of other working moms via social media groups and parenting blogs. It is my hope that this becomes your place to connect and not feel so alone.

Because, let’s be honest….sometimes life puts you through some crazy things and you are left to think: “Is it just me? Am I the only one who is struggling with this? Everyone else has it all figured out.”

My friends, they don’t. No one has it all figured out, and this blog is meant to pull back the curtain to expose the realness of life as a working parent.

It occurred to me the other day that I haven’t clearly laid out my intentions of this project. Rather, what’s in it for you? So, to summarize:

  • Connection and support
  • Parenting, Professional, Relational, Emotional advice
  • Collaboration
  • Authenticity
  • Community

I do hope you’ll join and connect with me! Let’s start a conversation….

  1. Life and parenting have so many variables! Never be afraid to say NO and be the parent. They won’t like you all the time. In fact, they may even say they hate you. Be strong, smile and tell them you don’t like the action but that you love them. Never call them stupid and always take the time to listen.
    As I spend countless hours with my grandsons, I am quickly reminded of the communication challenges between toddler and adult. There will be plenty opportunities for perfecting your negotiating skills.
    Patience is key to a lot of situations. Sometimes you have to redirect the meltdown and sometimes you let them cry it out.
    Whatever, you do….don’t cave in. They can spot weakness and will use it to their advantage later. If you don’t follow rules and boundaries neither will they. If you don’t follow through, the will push the limits until you cave. Be STRONG and brave! Remember they don’t have to like you and they need boundaries whether they like it or not.
    You and your spouse or partner must also be on the same page. Back each other up and never question each other in front of the child.
    After raising 2 kids, I am proud to say they are both successful adults. Both have told me that they wouldn’t have wanted their childhood to be any other way.
