Feeling good before our @westvalleymoms
meet-up a few weeks back. I’m not really the ‘girls’ girl when it comes to socializing. I’m introverted by nature; an empath who hates small talk and doesn’t do well with inauthenticity or interactions that don’t serve a purpose. Because of this, people tend to think I’m a bitch or appear standoffish. I can tell you right now I’m neither. I’m silly, sarcastic, cannot take myself seriously, I love fiercely, have cute aggression and am loyal to a fault. Once I feel 100% comfortable in your presence, you won’t be able to shut me up. I’m loud, high-strung, a little neurotic (okay, A LOT neurotic) and I can feel when I’m too much for someone. I have chronic foot-in-mouth syndrome and want to know every detail of your life’s story. I also assume everyone is as affectionate as I am and wants to live in a giant cuddle huddle. I can tell you from several awkward encounters in my life that this is not always the case.
The point of all this was to say that despite my insecurities as a contributor of WVMB, I am so happy to be a part of it and humbled that I’m in a group of such funny, smart, kind and real women. Sometimes it takes stepping out of our comfort zones to find new forms of contentment.
Gotta open every door she sees...
Are you ready?! On your mark, get set, go!
2018-2019 coming at you hard!
But you know what? I’m ready! I’m ready to be
- [ ] professionally challenged as a math department lead
- [ ] Physically challenged by my health goals
- [ ] Personally and Emotionally challenged as I balance home life and work life and coach life
- [ ] Academically challenged as I start my grad school classes
I’m excited to see all aspects of my life grow. My goal and promise to myself will continue to be to stay positive and keep pushing regardless of what I face. I will continue to ask and help people through their own health journeys because it has honestly helped me along with them! I get motivated when I motivate!
Will it be hard? Yes!
Will I struggle to keep up with it all? Yes!
Will it be worth it?! Yes!
I’m done with making excuses and then feeling bad about myself later. Life happens, uncontrollable things will happen, but I will continue to steer my wheel to the path I want regardless of the potholes!
Are you ready to let go of excuses? Want to try? Let’s fail forward together! We will still be closer to our goals than when we started even if it’s just one step!

Let the planning begin!!!!!!
I know, I know; bath time photos are overkill: but just look at how happy she is! This kid brightens every fiber of my being. The very core of me wants to eat her up, I love her so. Sorry not sorry, Insta.
This sleepy monkey missed her mommy so much this weekend she decided to stay up with me and keep me company while finishing up some homework tonight after work 😂🐒👶🏼 #mamasgirl
11 MoNthS ... My precious girl 💗
Walking around getting into everything, holding your phone to your ear when mommy says "hello"
Your laugh makes even the hardest days so worth it!!! You are the biggest mommy's girl, I Love watching you grow every single day, your personality is the cutest! Almost an entire year of adventures with you I cannot wait for a million more.
I can’t believe Charlotte turned FOUR today and her first day of pre-school is tomorrow!! Time really does go by so fast. She has a GINORMOUS personality and is always the life of the party. It’s impossible to be around her and not smile. She definitely completes our little family, and I’m so grateful to be her mommy! It seems like yesterday we were rushing to the hospital to meet this gem. Beyond grateful for what I’ve been blessed with in this life! Happy Birthday Charlotte Elizabeth 😍 #charlotteelizabeth #4goingon16 #mamasgirl #weloveyousweetgirl
How has it been 3 months? Time is a thief. I never knew love like this before I met you. I love your daddy more seeing how much he loves you. You screamed until they brought you to me and you immediately calmed down and you have been mama's girl since. I'm laying here staring at your beauty wondering how I got so lucky to get to be your mama. I love you so much Rylee Tate. #3monthsold #rainbowbaby #babybarker #babygirl #RyleeTate #timepleaseslowdown #timeisathief #mamasgirl
