Welcome to Single Moms Soar! Thank you for stopping by.
I’m thrilled to be able to inspire and empower other Single Moms who are ready to transform their thinking and realize what’s possible for their life. Those dedicated and driven women who want to reclaim and redesign the life they deserve, and to serve as an example to their young adult children so they can do the same.
As a Single Mom of two teenage boys, I know first-hand how easy it is to lose yourself in the day-to-day demands of motherhood, and gradually lose sight of your own dreams. You reach a point where you spend most of your time meeting everyone else’s needs and sacrificing your own wants and desires.
Then one day, you notice that time is flying by and life is changing rapidly – your children are older (or have even left home) and no longer demand as much of your time, your job is no longer as fulfilling as it used to be, or you feel out of touch with your family and circle of friends.
You may also be feeling like you need more support in nurturing and guiding your own young adult children toward realizing their own life’s potential.
As Single Moms, we tend to be a jack-of-all-trades, and sometimes don’t know all we need to know about specific topics in order to help our children make good, informed decisions. We quickly learn how important it is to have a network or community of family and friends who can help us figure it out.
If this sounds like you, then this is the perfect time to move on to this next level in your life!
I met my ex-husband when I was 16 years old. We dated for 10 years before getting married, and had our first son two years later. Little did I know, this would turn out to be one of the most difficult times of my life. You see, early in my pregnancy, I found out my husband had fathered a child with another woman, and he was born 7 weeks before my son. Talk about heartbreak!
Well, after much back-and-forth about being together, we relocated to the west coast in hopes of starting over. However, life didn’t get much better. I was still hurt and bitter, my heart was still shattered, I didn’t trust him, and he didn’t know how to make it better – so he didn’t even try. But, before calling it quits, we were blessed with our second son.
So, after more than 15 years together, we divorced in 2003. I was left feeling mentally and emotionally broken, but confident that life would go on, and get increasingly better.
Since I’ve always tried to be upbeat and positive, I quickly started on a journey of healing and self-discovery to help me embrace this “new normal” for my life as a Single Mom. I began pouring myself into self-help books, watching/listening to self-help programs, and strengthening my faith. I became extremely focused on “fixing” myself and re-emerging as a new and improved version of ME.
Over time, I gradually saw myself become a more confident woman who trusts my own thinking, recognizes and owns my power, maintains a sense of positivity, pursues a life of abundance, and operates above the obvious.
Ultimately, I realized it wasn’t about who I was in the past or even in that moment, but who I wanted to be moving forward. I recognized the self-destructive “story” about my failed marriage playing repeatedly in my head day-after-day, and how it was holding me back from being the person I knew I could be, living the life I deserved. Once I shifted my perspective, greater possibilities for my life became visible.
LOOK AT ME NOW!
Now, more than a decade later, as a Single Mom, business owner, introvert (with extrovert tendencies), healthy lifestyle-seeker, and ultimate life enthusiast, I’m excited about how things are turning out.
I’ve realized that in order for me to have my ultimate life, I must create an environment for it to flourish. So, I work hard every day to remain confident and positive in my thinking; stay connected to my higher power (God); stay clear of negative people/things; stay focused on my goals; and use my gifts and talents in service to others.
It’s a CHOICE that makes my life easier and more enjoyable each day.
Along the way, I determined it was important that my children also realize they can have an amazing life as well. So, I work closely to help them not just Imagine their ultimate life, but also truly Believe it can happen, and develop a plan to Achieve it.
Realizing my journey is not unique, my goal is to build a community of like-minded Single Moms who can empower and support each other in tackling the unique issues we face in our personal growth/development that often interfere with our ability to become our ideal self.
As well as, serve as the “village” we each may need to help nurture and instill in our young adult children how to also create the life they desire (and deserve).
