I created this blog to share my story. This is my journal, where I share my deepest thoughts and life journey. I blog about my spiritual life, motherhood, the challenges of life as a free spirit, and much more.
I am a divorced mother of two, restarting my life and reinventing myself. I have always loved writing, and writing has helped me to work through intense times in my life. To get to know me more, read my blog and join me on this journey of becoming the suburban goddess mom.
Getting older is not something to fear. The number one thing many doctors say you can do for your health is to live joyously, indulging in sustainable pleasure, living fully and with a sense of joy and adventure.
An emotional support animal is a companion animal that provides some benefit for a person. We picked a beautiful female Maltese puppy, which JoJo named Cupcake Kitty. She was and still is so tiny and gorgeous. She is sassy and wild when the situation warrants it and snuggly, loving, calming and concerned when needed.
There’s no denying it, relationships are hard work. They take time, attention, communication, care, attraction, and so much more. But, when you find someone you want to be with long term, all that hard work becomes infinitely worth it. Nothing feels better than feeling in love and being the best version of yourself in that relationship.
When it comes to family, especially in this day and age, they come in all shapes and sizes. Differences and diversity seem to be the new norm—couples with children, some married, some cohabitating, couples without children, same-sex couples, single parents, and blended families created through remarriage and re-partnering.
No one wants to see a child unhappy or anxious. Many anxious children have a parent who has anxiety themselves. While we all get anxiety from time to time, it is our job to help them work through any difficulties. It is important to understand these issues and get your child the proper help. It is important to help them learn to tolerate their anxiety and function “normally”, or as well as they can. And it is important to know that your child’s anxiety is not your fault. You are not a failure, and there is nothing “wrong” with them.
Our society and culture trains both men and women to think and behave, and it shapes how we all perceive ourselves and each other. How often have we heard that a woman who speaks up is demanding and bitchy, but a man doing the same is a go-getter? I don’t want to be seen as demanding and bitchy, but I also don’t want to continue to live in this land of resentment and victim mentality.
