I have always been a goal setter. I love trying new things. I always need to have something that I’m working on, a hobby or project. I’ve been that way all my life.
Growing up, I was constantly setting goals, making plans, and achieving them. It was easy, or at least easier back then. I mean I had so many less responsibilities and so much more time.
Back then I was a competitive dancer, was in numerous clubs and organizations, a cheerleader, an honors student, a Girl Scout, and earned full scholarships to both high school and college.
But once I started having kids, I got concerned that going after my goals and passions would become a thing of the past. That I would have to choose between being a good mom and being fulfilled.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, being a mom is definitely a fulfilling job. I absolutely love being a mom. But for me to be happy, I need fulfillment in other areas too.
So I made a decision. I decided to not let motherhood stand in the way of going after my goals. I also decided to be the best mom I can be. I rarely miss bedtime. I still spend every morning and evening with the kiddos aside from a date night or event here and there. I still spend the weekends with the family going to outings and church and fun events.
But I also make time to do some pretty cool/challenging things. Since becoming a mom I have:
Competed in several beauty pageants
Danced for numerous sports teams and music artists
Was in a music video for one of the lead guitarists for Guns N Roses
Created this blog
Taught dance and choreographed local musicals
Earned my Master’s Degree in Mathematics
Became a certified life coach
All while working a full time job and continuing to make babies.
My Life Now
Over the years I learned to prioritize, schedule, make lists, motivate myself, organize, and manage my time. I know how to go from goal to plan to success, even with a million other things on my plate. I am still constantly asked how I am able to accomplish so much, which is why I created this blog. To share what I’ve learned through trial and error.
With a husband, little boy and 2 girls, I still haven’t stopped. Now, I am a mom, wife, insurance adjuster, professional dancer, USA Cheerleader, pageant queen, and blogger. With all of my experience, I am still learning new tricks and ideas all the time!
I also make it a priority to spend quality time with my family and even spend a little time on myself. I like to share my advice, tips and tricks along with a healthy dose of humor!
With that said, my most important role is wife and mom. I have a wonderful, supportive husband who never discourages me from taking on the world and fully supports all of my endeavors. I also have a handsome, smart, and silly 6 year old, Tyler. He lights up my world and puts everything in perspective. I have a 3 year old, Hailey, a silly little sweetheart who may be small, but is loaded with personality. And finally a one year old, Belle, who is super smiley (although not in the picture below, lol) and loves her big brother and sister.
