A new and fun series kicking off with my favorite fashionable movie styles, imagined for TODAY.
What’s the fire in your gut that gets you out of bed in the morning?…It’s not what you want to do, or how, it’s what MOTIVATES you. Get clear on your WHY.
Self Improvement month? Perhaps better called “get your own oxygen mask on before you help others” month…
It is NOT always easy. Riddled with fear and self-doubt for MUCH of my life, I’ve had to dig in and push myself more than you can imagine. Often, when things have gone well, I have suffered crippling impostor syndrome which feels pretty much like this: So how did I get HERE,
The simple answer is YES!!! OF COURSE! The more complicated question to ask yourself before you answer is “am I ready for Moxie?” What if I told you it CAN BE LEARNED? Take a look for more on how I believe you are meant for MORE and turning midlife crisis into midlife
I’ve been dropping lots of hints the past couple weeks for a big announcement and it is finally here! I am so excited about this SYSTEM to find your truest confidence to step into your very best self that I am offering my followers a FREE consultation! All you need to do
This started as a Father’s day post–sneaking away with the hubby/he’s a great dad/appreciation thing–but turned into something a bit more. After a WHIRLWIND weekend of graduation, a state volleyball championship WIN, Conman’s grad party, and a volleyball banquet, we and our kids were a bit fried. Fabulous things all around, but
I have so much to say, yet I dread putting it down in words. Saying all that I feel makes this real. Graduation. In a few short hours, we will sit in the stands and watch you cross over into a new phase. Eighteen years ago this week, I was back to
This was originally published “off blog” when my eldest turned 16. I stand by these rules today. Mom’s Rules for Your Life Explore. This is your time to figure out what it is you want to do and who you want to be. I think you’re incredible now, but what will it become in
Did you grow up in the era of baby oil and reflector blankets or unlimited packages at the tanning salon? These days you likely regret that decision and fear looking like this: Here are my thoughts on keeping sunscreen favorites accessible for those sunny times we don’t think about! Beautycounter has a
I decided to tackle one of the most anxiety-inducing medical offices first: the dentist. I had
Right. Like anyone who has tried to set the intention for their Mother’s day has ever really had success in “attracting” the Mother’s day they desire. Am I bitter? Actually no. I’m not going to tell you that brunch, breakfast in bed, or whatever you choose is the wrong way to celebrate.
The Space In Between: an Essay on Loss For those who don’t know me personally, I need to start with who died. Not because you know her, but because you should have. Laura deserved to be known and loved by everyone. She was a prosecutor. While admirable in any circumstance, Laura was the fiercest “protector of
Some things and some people change your life forever. I’ve spoken of my sister-in-law and her unexpected passing which shook our family. What I haven’t shared to this point is that Laura, fierce mother, loyal friend, and tireless champion of children was also an organ donor. While this may not seem to
I love trying new things. As long as I won’t hurt myself or someone else, I’m down to try almost anything. Curiosity gives me life. Last fall, I was asked to speak on a podcast. I honestly only started listening to podcasts at the beginning of 2018, so I didn’t really know
The Importance of YOUR self language I have a solid sense of humor and definitely enjoy making my OWN self the butt of a joke from time to time. Self-deprecating humor can be really effective as an ice-breaker or to diffuse a tense situation. Yet many of us overuse it and it
Raise your hand if you have those not-so-quiet voices in your head telling you that you CANNOT do or be something you want? Insecurities are like little gremlins in greek chorus convincing us we will fail, be laughed at, whatever. They rob us of our courage every day. I posted about my
The Invisible Woman I see absolutely stunning beauty in EACH woman I meet. I feel her power. I sense her soul. I bet if I asked if these sameladies if they see it in themselves, 80% would say no. Confidence is sadly lacking in so many women, and as we age, it
Moxie Mama is headed into the “preschool” years. As I celebrate my anniversary, I share reflections…
Tomorrow I turn 49. With just 366 days until I turn 50, I wanted to reflect on some things I’ve discovered in my forties, and what I plan to accomplish before my half century mark. I think many women struggle with this milestone, but I find it sort of freeing. Each decade
