End of Year Reflections

It’s almost the end of the year so, like a lot of you, I’ve been reflecting on 2018– the highs, the lows and everything in between. If you’ve been following me, you already know that 2018 was, uhm, an INTERESTING year for me. LOL! I got divorced, started a new career, moved, and started a …

My First Birth!

I’ve been pretty emotional for the last few days because my first birth is away month. Uhm, no, I’m not pregnant. LOL! I mean, my first birth as a doula!   I’ve known my first doula client for almost 10 years. We met back when we were both working in the retail industry. She has …

The thing is, when we don’t unpack from the past, …

Haters Be Hating

We’ve all been there. We’re super excited about our new plan. So much so that we share it with a friend. But right after we give them the big news … nothing. No smile, no excitement, no support, nothing. I know I’ve been through it. It’s definitely bummed me out and sent me into a …
