Feeding a baby is hard.

It’s messy.

It’s frustrating.

You have to do a lot of trial and error to see what said baby likes to eat.

A lot of time it results is some funky looking shit.

But you do it right?

You feed the baby because the baby needs to grow. You feed the baby because once in a while the end result is sheer joy. The end result is a realization that opens that baby’s eyes to a whole new world. Oh hello sweet potatoes!! I love you smooshy peas! Bananas in a jar? Yes Please!!

So we go through all this hassle to see the smile or the sour-lemon face on our kiddos and the truth is, we should be doing the exact same thing for ourselves…but for our souls, our habits, our behaviors, our brains, our LIVES!

Personal Development is just that, personal. It’s not a one-size fits all gig. A lot of people peace-out on personal development because they read one book and it gave them the sour-lemon face. But that’s no reason to bail. FEED THAT BABY.


You just may find something that sets your soul on fire!

So how does this relate to being a mom? Or just being a human?

How does it NOT?!?!

Learning patience with your kids, learning how to optimize all of the hours you have in your day, learning how to save money, learning how to make money, learning how to have a better relationship with your partner or family. Learning how to cope with stress and anxiety…Yes these are all forms of personal development!

If you are feeling lost, frustrated, fed up, low on patience. Try it. You can’t change unless you do something you’ve never done before!

I'm a mom of two wonderfully wild kiddos with more personality than my heart has room for! I'm a runner, a coach and try to find a healthy balance in my life with gummy bears and green veggies. I try to see the positive in all situations and absolutely abhor complaining (its exhausting). Be happy and be kind (to others and yourself).
