1. What does WOW means to you?

WOW is a word that means WOW omg I can’t believe it that is amazing !! It is a beautiful adjective that feels like a miracle and impossibility that are possible !!! Lots of explanation points !!!

2. What is your greatest joy being a MOM?

Greatest joy of being a mother is seeing your children thrive daily . There are the ups and downs of life but as I have taught them gratitude and positivity they continue to stay in this mindset . Also teaching them compassion they are kind to others as you never know what someone else is going through . Hunter now 18 a huge accomplishment especially as a single mother and teaching him entrepreneurship always working hard to create your own destiny . Jade 14 a sweet angel but sure has her own opinions as she said I love my mom because she has taught me to be me . Having your own way of thinking and doing there own passions and gifts . I knew awhile ago They wouldn’t really listen to me but that has been wonderful and hard as they truly are independent and individual from love and inspiration.

3. What is your advice to other moms who want follow your footsteps?

I would love to share with other moms to always come from your heart .

This is the hardest job but the most rewarding . Be patient listen to there needs and make compromises daily.

It is important to have other mom friends and know we all go through the challenges of motherhood . The grass isn’t greener and as a single mom my son always reminded me mom you aren’t the only one. In this new era of life a lot of us have had to recreate ourselves over and over . Stay in your blessings and work hard and slowly even one day at a time things will get better . My spiritual practice of yoga and meditation has literally saved my life .

Always sending love out in the world !! Remember it isn’t the destination it is the journey .
