Unicorn Mom

Unicorn Mom

There is this certain kind of woman that always catches my eye. She's the mom who has it all together. Her ducks are in a perfect little row. She is never hurried. Her hair always looks amazing. Her teeth are always white. She's never emotional. She never sweats. She never forgets. Her messy buns are perfectly messy. Her yoga pants match perfectly with her sports bra and tennis shoes. I see her occasionally here and there. At target mostly. She looks happy. Her kids outfits always have matching bows and their socks always match. Their shoes are always tied. And their snacks are in coordinating colors. She is a unicorn.

The point is, what are you facing today that seems overwhelming? Because whatever it is, as you walk through it, believe that the change will be worth it.

Let Your Tears Water Your Growth

Let Your Tears Water Your Growth
I am no stranger to betrayal, pain, and loss. But I'm not innocent of it either. We are all human. The choice lies with us. I can face today with tomorrows offense, or with a better perspective of what I don't want to be. 

Shooting For the Stars

Shooting For the Stars
Some of my biggest goals where never accomplished because of my fear of failure. I have always struggled with perfectionism and performance.
