These are my not-so-little-babies——19 year son, 15 year old daughter. If you are now, or have ever been a young single mom: struggling with depression, domestic violence, divorce, poverty, Graduate studies, and an autoimmune illness—-you get the struggle.
As you follow my blog, you will read my personal experiences of falling short of being my best self and training myself through my own studies in health, fitness, education, and life that this journey we are all on is one that deserves our BEST efforts.
My children recently lost their father, my ex-husband, and once-upon-a-time friend to Renal Carcinoma. He was diagnosed in January, the month he turned 40, and he passed away a few weeks ago.
Naturally, my children are devastated and heartbroken, my feelings are complex as, I, too am managing every corner of my own mentale and emotional health and my own.
Gratefully, I can recognize the feelings that accompany this trauma in my children’s lives and their family.
I disclose this information to open a window into my present world; in addition to managing my multiple sclerosis, emotional and mental wellness, fitness, business owner and full-time teacher.
It is all a balance. So when I tell YOU, YOU GOT THIS…KNOW THAT YOU DO! AND SMILE THE CARES AWARE ONE STEP, ONE DAY, AT A TIME…
