Transformation Tuesday.... these pictures are almost 10 years apart yet I feel and look younger at 44, then I was at 34.

For some reason when we become moms we feel like we have to do everything and take care of everyone, but ourselves. We tell ourselves that we have to be super moms if not we will feel guilty or worse yet others will think we are a failure as a mom. We feel the need to compare ourselves to others in the mom department all the while ignoring our own well being.
I see it all the time, especially when you have younger kids because the thought is they need more of your time and for the most part that is true. They need you for everyday essential living. However, those of us with older kids have bigger problem to deal with. The saying goes “little kids little problems, big kids bigger problem”. Regardless if your a new mom, a toddler mom, a preschool mom, an elementary mom, middle school mom, high school mom.... you get the picture, you have to take care of you!!!! There is no award for supermom who is exhausted, overworked, and just plain tired.
So if you one of these moms, start today and make yourself a priority 🙌😊

I do, do what I love. #bepeculiar #wework #nerd #nerdgirl

Confirmed: cougar-cub thing gotta be > 10 years apart. Otherwise, he’s just a lil younger, not “young”. #HowAreYouABaldingGreyHairedCub |

Having the energy to take on day to day routines is all fine, but having the energy to take on the beach during #hurricaneflorence is something only my nutritional system can do for you! #weightandwellness #AmpedLife #healthandwellness #betterover40 #lifeafter40 #TransformationofASouthernDiva

When I know I’ve got some opportunities (challenges) to tackle, it’s just me & Ruby - working to get things done while changing perception. ~ moi 💋💄

About last night... There was an All Black Event. I was dressed. But what had happened was, @ms.nolanpowell & I talked about the line at the door, and seating, and the crowdedness, and the proper time to arrive... And I realized I’m more of a “get there early, stroll the room and leave early” kinda chica, than a “get there late & stay until it’s over” kinda chica. I make a cute couch potato though *kicks off shoes, puts on PJs, turns on Power* 😘 💋💄

I learned a new word - midster: “a middle aged person, without midlife crisis, trying to have some fun in life.” Yep, accurate. ...

Daily rituals even when I’m crunched on time, particularly when I’m feeling challenged. Light the diffuser with something to affect my mood. Take kind note for the day. Meditate. ...
