Drop everything and go play, mom!
Play is essential for kids growing up to learn skills and socialize. Another important aspect of play is that it helps us learn to cope in different situations and teaches us to laugh about ourselves. How come as we grow older we forget to play? Or maybe we stop playing, thinking that it’s too sillyContinue reading “Drop everything and go play, mom!”
How to avoid making the same mistakes
This is a question that I always keep in mind since my divorce. My experience was that when I got separated I realized I had changed so much without even seeing it.

When they say you can’t do it…
The saying goes: “When they say you can’t do it, prove them wrong.”*Do you have someone in your life that is always saying you can’t do it? We all have one of those, and we feel we need to prove to them all that we are capable of. Every time we come and share withContinue reading “When they say you can’t do it…”

Why I became a coach
Today I want to share why I became a coach. We all do things based on our own experience, right? Becoming a coach for me is directly connected to a moment in my life when I needed help. Right after my ex husband broke the news to me that our marriage was over, I reachedContinue reading “Why I became a coach”
