"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
Just. Do. It. Find what you are passionate about, get out there and try it. Fail. Dust yourself off, and do it again. Going after your heart and dreams isn’t always easy, but it is so important. I think it’s crucial to ask yourself daily, “What do I want out of life?” You find that answer, and you take steps toward it every single day. Achieving your goals is easier said than done, but the reward at the end is worth every single struggle.
Both of my great-grandfathers have cancer. My mom is in remission from lymphoma. I had friends in college who lost parents to cancer. Cancer is something I saw touch friends and family members in their early years. The disease seems to be one degree away from personally impacting everyone. But the science is ever changing, and research efforts are growing every year. We continue to discover things everyday, so there’s hope. There’s still a lot to be done and discovered, so I do everything I can to support organizations that work to end cancer for good.
I am very excited about a few home design projects I’m currently working on. I can’t wait to have those completed because I’m looking forward to sharing them with the public. I’ve also been super busy with my radio show, Mom Life Yo, and it’s been an awesome opportunity to harness the ability to be an influencer in such a positive and authentic way. I’m in the process of developing products that I think will tie in all the various parts of who I am and what I love in a really creative way. So overall, the future feels bright right now!
Own who you are!!! I think I’ve embodied the word “sexy” in a different way since becoming a mom. I connect to it on another level that feels genuine and natural now. Growing up, words like “voluptuous” might have meant chubby or even fat. When I think of it now, “curvy”, “thickness” and “sexy” come to mind. I feel so womanly, and I believe becoming a mother helped me connect to my version of glamourous in ways I never had before.
There’s something about becoming a mother that I believe helps women find their own truth. As challenging as being a working mother is, I found that becoming a mother gave me a renewed sense of my purpose in life, and it helped me better understand the reasons I wanted to continue pursuing my career. For me, those reasons were my kids and my creativity. I enjoy spending my time with like minded mamas.
