Hey there. I thought I would say hi 👋🏽
I am the face behind the blogs. I am Southern California girl (Simi Valley). I share my story about life as a mom of two teens, life as a retired Army Combat Veteran and a military spouse of over 21 years.
I know how it is to juggle life with your career. I know how it is so be a Soldier trying to fulfill your duties and as a spouse trying to support his career. I also know how it is to raise two children during meetings, daycare, deployments, field time, bosses who want all of your time. I have been there and done that. I also know how it is to go through a mid life crisis and cut all your hair off and dye it purple. Yup. Been there too.
My hair isn’t perfect but it’s mine. My makeup isn’t perfect either but I still put on my face. My clothes are comfy casual and it’s me.
Oh and I’m also an advocate for PTSD awareness for individuals and families because we live it firsthand. So this is me. This is us. This is my story. Want to talk? Need some advice? Reach out. I promise that you are not alone.

Be still

Some days are better than others.
Some days I would much rather stay in the bed and sleep away all the stuff I have to do. Some days I pray for peace and guidance to get rid of all those things going on in my head. All the worry. All the stress. All. The. Things.
BUT I get up anyway. I get up even if it is to make that new dinner recipe that has me kinda excited to try. I get up to make a lunch for my son to get him through a long day of a wrestling tournament. I get up to be with my pups.
I am learning to just be still and take a deep breathe. Sometimes that is all we can do and need to do.
Be still and let him do the rest. Be still and be thankful for another day.
We’ve got this. .

Be you

I try and teach this to my kids. Often times we go through life worrying what others will think. I am guilty of doing this with the clothes I wear or the things I say or even want to do. But, who cares ! We are who we are for a reason. We are a beautiful work of art. You may get “the looks” because that person may be admiring you from afar. Maybe they wish they had your spark. Your individuality. They may be struggling with some parts of themselves. So don’t worry. Carry on with your bad self.
