It's easy to live in regret. To think that it's too late. But, it's never too late. You have today. Now. And as moms, we press on. #motherhood  
Sometimes I look at my life and I see every single thing that isn’t right. I see the mistakes. The dreams that I think are lost. I’ll look at my mothering journey and allow these hypothetical and much to hard on myself regrets to fill my mind. I’ll start to wish I had done this […]

This is life. Real motherhood.
Motherhood is an extraordinary adventure that often is cloaked in the ordinary. Motherhood reality. It's not Hallmark. Nor is it losing all the baby weight by six weeks postpartum. Nor is it raising mini geniuses who know Latin by four and can play a Mozart solo by six. Nor is it you losing yourself and forgetting your passions and talents. It's you.

My response to the whole Self Magazine fiasco over the awesome tutu running women. Making fun of others is never okay. Ever. Tutus or not. 
That's the real self. Learning to be confident in who you are so that you have no need to bash another to build yourself up. Imagine if Self Magazine had shown love and support instead? If they had embraced the uniqueness, individuality, and power that those tutus represented? Today would be a different story. Hating. Mocking. Passivity. All of that for gain is only temporary and it really only hurts those that do it.

Yesterday I turned 39. So I wrote a letter to myself, which in a way, turned into a letter for each of you about life, about moments, about failing, and about joy. #motherhood
