What you believe you become.

A long time ago I realized that I was meant for more.  I knew that my life had a path that I hadn’t uncovered yet.  I had to begin a journey to figure out the chaos in my mind. I was confused and had no idea where to start.  I knew I wanted to do…

Rollercoaster.

Life is ever changing. It doesn’t stop when you need a break. But what it does do, that many of us neglect to understand is, it hears us. It hears our cries. It hears our sadness. It hears everything. We need to learn how to ask! We need to learn patience! We need to understand…

Hey Mom!

As a mom, these are words that we hear countless times a day. We hear them in our sleep, while we’re hiding in the bathroom with the door locked hoping for a few minutes of quiet, we hear them through tears and through giggles. Words that are simply precious, even when we’re tired of hearing…

Discovering the soul.

You may or may not be aware of the transformations I’ve invited into my life.  I’ve spoke about challenging myself to intentionally transform my mindset, to change my life.  By deciding to become aware of myself on a more intimate level and to make the necessary changes to create the life I want and deserve,…

Searching for light.

Yesterday I wrote in a very honest, raw manner. Everything about my day was off. I felt negativity coursing through my mind, and I knew there was a reason I needed to feel it. I couldn’t pinpoint what that reason was, yet I knew it was necessary. I tried to relieve myself from feeling so…

Forlorn.

Its time to get real.  Sometimes being intensely honest is necessary. I’m on a journey.  I’m reaching new heights within that I have never ventured to.  I am seeking clarity, reigniting passion, and moving past fear, resentment and my past. Everyone has a past.  Everyone has a story that they don’t want to share.  We’re…

Little faces.

Each morning when I wake, I see your face.  I see the eyes created to see the pureness of life.  I see the smiles of children with joyous hearts.  I see the souls of two small children filled with elation to waken each morning, fresh and anew. Each morning I am amazed at how exuberant…

Just go with it!

For so many of us, signs are something we ignore more than accept.  I know for myself, I try to see the signs for what they are, yet I feel like I’m always missing something.  At what point do we just know?!  This may sound a bit unrealistic, I get it.  But seriously, do you ever…

The Mama Chronicles: Just a boy.

On the day that our daughter was born, we were new to the fact that she was blessed with Down Syndrome.  This was a new world for us because neither myself or her father knew anything about it.  Over the next few days, we did minor research, trying to prepare ourselves for what could lie…

Living on your terms.

Life has a funny way of making us uncomfortable in order to force us to change. A few years ago, I woke up to a profound feeling of failure.  It took a lot of searching to understand where this feeling was coming from and why now.  Being an emotionally driven person, I didn’t recognize this…

Lose the regret.

I’ve always felt that regrets are a waste of time and energy.  Each one of us has done things, made decisions or followed a path we wish we hadn’t, yet without those decisions being made, we wouldn’t be who we are today.  Each and every decision makes us who we are.. good or bad. Trust…

The Mama Chronicles: It’s okay to cry.

I have days when I feel that no one understands how I feel. When I feel that no words can accurately express what’s going on inside my heart and mind. Sadly, this happens more often that I’d like to admit. Yes, my daughter has Down Syndrome, and yes, she is a handful more often than…

Believing in magic.

Inspiration can be sparked from just about anything. For me, it was watching Mary Poppins Returns with my kids. Every aspect of that wonderful movie put me in a mindset of pure enchantment and joy. Even the somewhat sad part of losing their family home. Magic can happen even in the darkest of times. During…
