Gold Star Families Remembrance Week

Did you know that September 20 – 26th , 2020 has been designated as Gold Star Families Remembrance Week?  It is a week to honor the families of fallen service members who were left behind after their hero paid the ultimate sacrifice.  This week brings up so many big emotions and memories as I think back to that day and the many weeks, months and years that have followed. On June 24, 2010, I vowed to do any and everything I could to honor Eddie’s sacrifice and keep his...

Apology Letter to Military Spouses

Dear Military Spouses, I have never been one to shy away from admitting when I am wrong.  Well at least not since I have been a bit more of a seasoned adult, if you will.  I am writing this letter to apologize to every single military spouse out there.  For many, many years I placed tremendous judgement on military spouses.  And as embarrassed as I am about those judgements (because they were unfair and completely wrong), I believe writing this letter holds a lot of value, not only because...

You’re In School AGAIN?

I mentioned in my last blog, “Has It Really Been Over 18 Months?”, that in 2019 I began studying to become a yoga teacher and upon graduation in early 2020, I began teaching Yoga.  What I didn’t mention was how much practicing, studying and teaching Yoga has changed my life.  For the better. I suppose I should probably start with my Yoga hOME, Life Moves Yoga, because after I had the “aha moment” that I shared in my previous blog, I immediately began researching studios here in Central Texas.  It...

Retired, 42 Years Old and Pregnant: The 1st Trimester

In my last blog, over two months ago, I talked briefly about where I had been and what I have been up to, with every intention on regaining momentum specific to writing more.  My plan was (and still is) to focus my blogs on two major areas: my pregnancy and post-partum journey and topics specific to you - professional women who juggle too much and helping you find balance and joy.  Well here I am, yet again, a few months later and I honestly don’t know where the...

Where Have The Last Six Months Gone?

Well here we are – summer is over, the kids are back to school (yay!) and in a few short days it will be Labor Day weekend.  I swear it was just the beginning of March and I was getting ready to walk down the aisle and marry, my now husband, Omari.  In the blink of an eye, we had a beautiful wedding surrounded by loved ones, began preparing to relocate to Texas (and finally incorporated both of our household goods into one), found out we are expecting...

Sleep: Building A Balanced You!

A few weeks ago, I began a series called, “The 4 Components To Building (And Maintaining) A Balanced You!”.  If you missed my live event introducing the series, click here to check it out.   As you know I recently began my journey as a life coach, helping professional women who juggle too much find balance and joy!  There is a common theme that I have observed amongst these women.  They are exhausted.  Overwhelmed.  Stressed out.  And they often feel guilty when they practice self-care.  The thing is, if we...

5 Questions To Consider When Looking For a Life Coach

  Working with a life coach is an investment in oneself. Life coaches work with people who have a desire to make a change in their life and are focused on achieving success and results. Coaches are non-judgmental, superb listeners and creative thinkers, all of which help build confidence and trust within this confidential relationship. Coaches help develop the best in their clients by using a powerful process which connects their inner purpose and passion to their outer goals and strategies. Coaches also use, and teach, applicable skills that...
