Somewhere in the ever-growing list of apologies to my Mother, I am making a point. (It's subtle, but it's there.) The point is that my Mom knew what she was doing when she was raising me and that she showed me lots of love and support every day. Those are just a few of the reasons I find myself incorporating some of the things she did into…Continue

Love never fails.
"It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."
1 Corinthians 13:7
I've been thinking a lot about who I am as a mother. Am I a good one? Do I do enough? Most of the time I…Continue
Stress is common to all of us. Unfortunately, everyone feels the effects of stress at some point in their daily lives. As a mother, stress sometimes comes from the one place that should be the happiest and most fulfilling part of your life. Yes, I am talking about your kids.…Continue

Whether you are/were pregnant and alone or left alone with small kids or teenagers, the pain feels about the same regardless of your circumstances. Please know that his leaving had absolutely nothing to do with you!

I have lost count of how many times I've heard or seen this phrase written somewhere.
"Forgiveness Is For You!"
Forgiveness is your path to emotional freedom. Nobody wants to be a slave to anger! I can't sit here and pretend that forgiving someone, who has caused more pain then you can imagine, is an easy thing to do. I can't sit here…Continue

** There's nothing like having your kids barge into your bathroom and present you with a Valentine while you're standing there buck naked.…
You’re pregnant, you’re hungry, the Crème brûlée was there, so was the creamy fettuchini. Cream is milk. Milk is a great source of calcium and all!
Besides, it's easy to tell a pregnant woman not to gain extra weight while sitting behind a desk!
However, is it worth it? Is it worth giving into all the cravings during pregnancy? Before you answer that, first "what are the dangers of gaining above the recommendation during pregnancy".…Continue
Shopping for stylish, plus-sized swimwear at a department store can really be a nightmare. Even if you happen to find a bathing suit in your size, they seldom flatter your figure and they almost always look as if the designer forgot their fashion sense. Given the lack of swimwear for anyone who doesn’t have a Hollywood figure, many women leave the department store feeling disappointed, especially mothers whose bodies may be different from what they were a…Continue

This valentine season, and for the first valentine season ever, I am over-joyed. I know, I know that this is so cliché. Valentine is a hallmark holiday. I’ve always said that, as I googled pubs that have anti-valentine themes and a crowd that wants to be as far away from valentine as possible. I’d sing “all the single ladies” and pop red balloons. I’d go…Continue

Widen your nets to spread your message
These past five days I was preoccupied about the way forward in my life and my business. Are you thinking as I am thinking? That you need to widen your nets to spread your message to reach more people globally. My tools were sharpened these past five days as I listened to bright minds who spoke and demonstrated effective ways to succeed in reaching the global market.
The natural beauty of the landscape of Lake Las Vegas…

Everyday, I meet women who once were professionals – they were doctors, software engineers, HR consultants, journalists and so much more. People knew them for their diligence, work ethics and never say no attitude. They had an identity and a career and it was all going upwards.
Then they became MOTHERS and it all changed forever.
They became poop cleaners, food feeders and just obsessed with ‘cleaning up.’ They started getting judged not by their work but by how much weight is…Continue
