Who Said Being a B.I.T.C.H. Was a Bad Thing?

I want to be one.

B.I.T.C.H. =  *Babe in Total Control of Herself.*

Luckily, I know one. 

In today's episode of The Family Law Insider Podcast, +Fiona Fine, an author, speaker, and Editor-in-Chief of Women Who Run It, talks with me about taking your power back and gaining control over your life, your love and your career.

I soaked it all in from Fiona. You can, too.

Healthy Boundaries = Happy Life

I can get pretty upset when someone gets all up in my space. 

In reality though, a lot of the time, the violation of my personal boundaries is my fault.


Because I haven't communicated those limits/requirements/desires to others.


Because, many times, I haven't taken the time to figure out what my own limits/requirements/desires are.

Have you?

In this post, I explore how by NOT identifying and communicating your personal boundaries to others, you might be messing with your own happiness.

Is Your Lack of Personal Boundaries Getting in the Way of You Being Happy?

It can be infuriating when someone won't take "no" for an answer. Or...when someone treats you in a way they KNOW you don't like. Or...when you don't feel like your views are being heard.

However, the fact is, in many cases, people haven't taken the time to sit down and think about what their boundaries are.

Have you?

And...if you have, have you communicated those boundaries to the world?

If not, is it fair to expect other people to honor them? 

In this post, we explore the value in knowing your own boundaries and shouting them out for the world to hear.

Feeling Pissy?

Have you ever felt pissed off at the entire, bloody world?

Have you ever broiled with rage because it seems like no matter how hard you try, things never seem to go the way you think they should?

Have you ever wanted to explode with fury because although you were working hard and playing by the rules, you felt you were getting nowhere?

Have you ever wanted to smack the crap out of someone you think has the life you want?

Yep. Me, too. A LOT lately.

At first I thought it was the 100+ degree weather in Phoenix. Then I thought it was my hormones. Then I thought it was the huge pimple I got on my chin.

Then, I figured out I GOT the pimple on my chin BECAUSE I was so angry.

I'm exhausted from all the rage. I am stopping. Here. Now. Today.

Want to stop being pissy with me?

Read how to do this now:

Summertime When You Are a Kid = Awesomeness

Lazy mornings spent sleeping in.

Popsicles melting all over your hands.

Water balloon fights.

But...But...then there are...the dreaded swimming lessons.

I feel like a horrible mother. Yesterday, for the first time this summer, I subjected my three year old to the trauma of her first swimming lesson. It was ugly.

I do know, however, in the midst of the drama, there is a gift...

...just like there is a gift in every change in your own life.

How will you meet change?

You can meet it with bravery and grace. You can!

Step up to the ledge... Plug your nose... Jump!

A Phoenix, Arizona divorce lawyer and the owner of Hernandez Family Law. I am a centered, committed and sometimes dramatic (in the best sense of the word) woman, mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend and lawyer.
I was born and raised in a small copper mining town in Northern Arizona.  Before going to law school in South Bend, Indiana, I had never traveled east of New Mexico.  I am grateful for the opportunity to have earned my law degree at the University of Notre Dame; the best professors taught me and there, I learned the importance of maintaining integrity in the practice of law.  I am cognizant of my integrity every day of my life, both personally and professionally.

While at Notre Dame, the travel bug bit me, even if I was only traveling throughout the midwest and eastern U.S.  After graduating from Notre Dame, I expanded my horizons and traveled the world during my vacation time -- mostly alone.  While "jet setting," I encountered amazing people, experiences AND food (one of my favorite things).  Because of my past travel, I have learned to appreciate diversity in cultures as a whole and within individuals.  My collective travel and work experiences have taught me that every person, even the accused murderer, has a story to tell. 

If we listen to people, we learn.  

If we learn, often, we can help.  

That is our purpose on this planet.  

That is MY purpose on this planet. 

How can I help you?
Bragging rights
I became a mother for the first time at 40 years old. Talk about the hardest (but most rewarding) learning curve I've ever experienced! Being a mother has changed my view on the world and has affected the way I practice law. Before, it was hard to put myself in the shoes of clients whose families were undergoing major changes. Now, I better understand the pain that goes along with the thought of not seeing your children daily or, even worse, losing them altogether. My primary focus is on the children, keeping them safe and healthy and maintaining the integrity of the family, even if the family is being redefined.
