As a working mother you may always feel like you are being pulled from left to right. I can relate! This is because we are and we do not always know when to say STOP! I have come to the realization that a small part of me likes being busy. It’s the idea that if I’m not busy then I haven’t accomplished anything. This too could be a dangerous thing for many moms. Post-partum is a real thing and many new moms are trying to be super moms, like myself, and do not give the appropriate time to stop and take care of self. Due to my training I was able to recognize this and take a step back. Many women do not have the same insight as myself and drive yourselves down the path towards depression. That tricky thing call depression can creep up on you and take you buy surprise. Don’t fall into this pattern. Take some time for you. I am blessed to have a husband whom could understand this. He would take the kids so I could have some me time, or even some girl time. Send me to get my hair done and so on and so forth. Now moms don’t forget dad either. Men to can fall into the hands of depression after a new child/children come into the picture. Let him out with the fellas or send him to get some needed individual time. With all this one on one time don’t fall short and not address the most important relationship. The two of you as a couple. Couple time is much needed, the both of you making the other feel special, sexy and loved. The two as a unit are what allowed this special chapter called parenthood to begin. Don’t let it fall to the waist side due to neglect. Supper moms are over rated, but healthy happy moms are what everyone needs. So but down the cell phone, turn that paper over and all pens down. It’s time to get back to what’s important and that’s family, love and support for one another. This is just a friendly reminder from your local T.P.C (The Parent Counselor). LIVE, LAUGH AND LOVE!

So what is my worth? Who determines what that is? How can it be changed or adjusted for new interactions?
Well my worth is based how I define it and who I give the power to define my definition. I am more than just a mother, wife, daughter and friend. I am also a motivator, naturalist and spiritual being. These are just a few things that define who I am and what others can expect from me.
We get so caught up with, how to act and when not to act. Whom to impress and who is not worth of our time. What to give and not give. Whom to help and not help. As time goes on we get lost in all this confusion and we lose sight of the person we once where and where we are headed.
So this is where you begin and I assist you in that journey. Gaining insight to the changes that have happened. Categorizing and prioritizing your goals and aspirations in life and moving forward. As a motivational speaker and life coach I have assist many in this journey for change. Whether you are a new parent or a CEO of a major corporation. I have assisted many in understanding and redefining self.
In my upcoming workshop “What to Expect, When Expecting” I will help families gain an understanding of what is ahead and how they can prepare. Foe example, understanding what postpartum is and how to help your partner during these transitional times. If you or any one you know are interested in the workshop or would like a little assistance in other areas, you are more than welcomed to contact me. From your neighborhood T.P.C.

As we go through life we place all these expectations on ourselves. Some are achievable and others are so far out of reach we have to wonder, “how in the heck did I think I could do that?”
So, what I decided was to lessen that feeling of unrealistic expectation I have placed over myself for many years. I started to do this by self-reflection and understanding who I was as a person. Which lead me to more doubt an unrealistic expectations. With time I realized I’m really unable to remove or add anything new to how I perceive myself until I begin to truly love myself and find a deeper connection to my creator. This was the path to which I had to travel in order to make change for myself. This may not be the path for you. With that being said, I moved into the direction of self-love and respect. Understanding where I wanted to be internally and making strides to obtain that emotional connection.
I began to see many of my positive and negative experiences that have taken place in my life, as events which have molded me into the person I am today. Honing in to the gifts I have been given and strengthening the areas I could use improvement. All of this, and much more, led me to where I am today. In my personal life, as a wife to my amazing husband and mother of two beautiful twin boys with the best dog ever. To a therapist that is sympathetic to the needs of my clients while maintain a structured practice to assist my community. Being involved with my church and participating in volunteer activities.
As I share my journey with you I will shed light on questions many of you have sent me. With time I will add YouTube videos to further assist you in your own personal journey’s.
When addiction is invading a family, the person afflicted with addiction may not be the only one with a problem. When the family members don’t believe in addiction as a disease or a problem, they become an obstacle in the way of the addict getting help. http://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/200910/overcoming-addiction
