There is no such thing as Superwoman…


Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

Earlier this week, we took a trip back in time to “Before I was a Mother, I was a Daughter.”   We talked about foundations, and how those moments of childhood and the struggles that followed, were the moments that set me up for success in my greatest role now, a mother to my twins.

We all have these moments, whether they are related to motherhood, or our roles as daughters, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends, employees, colleagues, bosses, teachers, therapists, house managers, financial controllers, pet owners, whatever.  These moments, and the choices we make in these moments, give us the opportunity to be our best in the next moment.

People often ask me, how I do all that I do.  While I do think it is a lot, I also think it is probably not too much, if any more, than what so many other people and mothers do each day.  My circumstances and execution are different, but many of us are so busy there is just no way to understand or comprehend how we actually get it all done.

Today, as I was l out shopping for cape, I realized there just weren’t any in my size….

  1. Here’s a little secret…When I see that you have added a new post, I brew myself a fresh cup of coffee, tell the kiddos I’m “unavailable” , and get comfy to “really read” your posts. I always feel like I’ve had a pep-talk with a dear friend. Thanks!

    (Oh, and shared the Shine page on both of my FB pages because when I find something good, my mama taught to share it with my friends. 🙂 )
