Failures make the person. I use to love public speaking. I’m pretty introverted one on one, but getting up there to educate people about what I know best and seeing them understand it- there’s nothing better. A few years ago though, I royally messed up in an oral exam and public speaking has frightened me ever since. It was my rock bottom. My confidence was already on a steady decline, but that moment knocked whatever confidence I thought I had right out of me. It’s been a uphill battle ever since. Last week though, I gave a presentation and it was the first time I felt back on top since that dreadful “failure” a few years ago. Answering questions could have gone (and will get) better, but I I left that podium knowing I nailed the presentation... see failure isn’t really failure until you completely give up. As long as we get back up when we get knocked down we are progressing, improving, and becoming a better person. Getting a PhD is a struggle y’all. It’s like a 5.5 year (on average) long boot camp that tears you completely down only to build you up a better and more resilient scientist... and human. That’s what this life is about: getting knocked down only to keep getting up and coming back stronger. ✌🏼💜🌴
I have been trying to implement a new morning routine which means getting up before my kids and husband at an ungodly hour (right now that means 5:40am!)
This morning all three of my children woke up screaming/crying at 5am and refused to go back to sleep. .
I think this is the reason that I want to help other Mompreneurs because no matter how hard you try to work on the business, family comes first and shit happens but that doesn’t mean you should give up.
I know I can’t work on my business as much as someone who doesn’t have tiny humans to take care of but without them I wouldn’t have gone for it!
I wouldn’t have my own business I wouldn’t be helped amazing ambitious moms level up and see their own potential, I wouldn’t been able to show my kids that YES YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL, and YES YOU DESERVE IT!
Kombucha party foul! 🤦♀️ I don’t know about you, but when your second ferment starts out like this, takes two hours to clean up the floors, cabinets, counters, and walls....you just call it a day and try again tomorrow. Oh, and that isn’t even kombucha!! That’s the homemade honey blueberry lavender syrup I made that somehow fermented in the refrigerator. Ugh! #kombucha#homebrew#partyfoul#notmyday#ugh

We’ve all lived with failure. Each and everyone of us. It’s the thought that lurks in the back of our minds when we try something different or new. I know it’s definitely something that lingers in the back of my mind when I try something new. Such as this whole entrepreneurial world and focusing more on the business side of my writing and content rather than just strictly the passion. It’s something that I work so hard at every day to understand because I want to create something amazing for you all. So as I have embarked on this new journey I’ve had to take a new motto when it comes to failure: Failure is nothing more than a chance to revise your strategy.
So instead of getting bummed when something doesn’t go my way or my Insights weren’t as good as I’d like them to be, I revise and attack again. And when it still doesn’t go as well, I snuggle up with a good book and clear my head and worry about it another time. 😉

Yes, "Failure is Fuel" IF you LEARN from every experience, and LEVERAGE every lesson.
It's only failure if you allow it to tear you down and keep you hiding in fear. Don't allow your challenges to keep you weighed down and stuck in shame. Instead, USE it, especially if it has already misused or abused you. It's the season of change, so change your mind about it and you will literally change your life. If it has cost you too much already, this is the season to collect interest back on your investment. Get your book today.

Throwback 22 years ago. Sometimes u gotta look at where you've been to remember where you've gotta go. You have to figure out how to reset and start over and be better. Parenting is not a sprint, it is a freaking marathon ...and I've got a bum leg now😋. Life gets harder. It is not for the faint of heart. 🤔🙄
I wake up every damn morning and try to figure out how to mom my kids, how can I do better, be better. What do they need? Look harder, look closer...and I try. To soften my eyes and soften my heart when I'm all riled up and just try again to get it right. Give them what they need and what they deserve. I try my balls off.
And I love with all I have.
That's all I got and you know what?
