As a woman and mom, I've had to debunk the myth of putting others first and myself last. I've learned the hard way that I cannot give what I don't have. Despite what well meaning people want you to think, taking care of yourself is the most selfless act you can do for others. It allows you to be more available and capable...

I see you life. I see you.  

I'm standing at the threshold ready to to embark on new journeys and unfamiliar territory. My God... the things I've put off! The projects patiently waiting for me to get my glutes in gear...

Okay mom... 

The hubs has gone to do his thing and the grandparents picked up the kids. You have the house to yourself and time to spare.

What's on your agenda...

Most mothers vividly recall pregnancy ups and downs. We remember our aches and pains just as much as the warm fuzzy moments. One thing pregnancy gave me that still remains is my need for extra iron. I suffer with iron deficiency and I know this is a battle many women face after pregnancy and child birth...

Life has not been fair to me today (in my opinion). My youngest has clung to me like wet clothing and needed my attention 59 seconds out of each minute. I've been at wit's end at least three times and I have no idea how I didn't go over the edge...

One of the things that helps me make it through my busiest and darkest days is humor. I'm a silly, fun-loving person but only those in my circle know the extent to which my humor goes!

f you've been on this internet journey with me for a while, you know I enjoy a good laugh, good food, and good times. You also know that positivity, honesty, and inspiration are even higher on my priority list. I think they all go well together. Don't you..

It’s in the late night hours that I have the most clarity; my deepest thoughts revealed. One night, while up late creating content, I started to ponder the course of my life and career. I asked myself “Tandra, what the hell are you really doing?”...

Just a few years ago I was like a leaf in a storm- blowing through life aimlessly, directionless. It wasn't that I didn't have dreams. There were things I wanted to accomplish. I had a novel-long list of “I wish” and “someday” but I never took the necessary steps to make any of it happen...

Becoming a confident woman is about more than walking into and commanding a room. Confidence shows up in many different forms. It’s a depends-on-the-individual kind of thing. I have come to understand that it is also asking for and lovingly demanding what I need daily...

As a mother, I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve been advised to say no, to not spread myself too thin, and the like. Although this is sound advice and setting boundaries is vital, I recently started thinking in the opposite direction...
