My journey of motherhood began at the age of 20 years old. I remember how scared I was to tell my parents I was pregnant and unmarried at the time. Oh, and in college! So many thoughts ran through my mind, specifically what will my dad think of his babygirl now. Well all the unimaginable scenes I played out in my head did not occur in reality. Of course they were a little disappointed, but said “You will finish college and you will have your son with you.” That I did!!
My handsome son encouraged me more than he knew to finish college and prove to him, my parents, myself and those naysayers that I would! He actually attended classes with me as I trekked across campus with him on my hip, backpack and diaper bag on my back. Fast forward to 8 years later, my beautiful daughter was born and yes I was married this time. This little princess kept me on my toes because she was so much like me when she was younger. I knew I had to be the model of a woman I wanted her see and not the one society was casting as a “woman”.
They are now 26 & 18 and are still my heartbeats and the reason I go hard on my 9-5 but go HARDER on my 5-9! They deserve the world and to see more of it! They are my reason why I never gave up on myself and my dreams to be a business owner. Lol...I went from being a senior in high school dreaming of owning a T-shirt business to owning three home based businesses. I do what I love and love what I do! I inspire personal transformation through education, wellness & travel. Wow, who knew motherhood could bring out things you didn’t even know God had placed within you!
