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.
Empathy is the ability to tune into and share another person’s emotion from their perspective. It plays a crucial role in bringing people together. It’s the joy you feel at a friend’s wedding or the pain you experience when you see someone suffering. It’s an essential ingredient for building intimacy in relationships.

Every time I think I can’t take any more or I have conquered one, another shows up.Life transitions can be positive or negative, big or small, planned or expected. Transitions (even happy ones) can be stressful and bring up mixed feelings.
There are some professions out there that just don’t get enough recognition, and teaching is one of them. Teachers are so much more than people who stand in front of students and talk for a few hours. Not only do teachers have to be smart and well educated, they must be able to understand people, and have a passion for what they do.
