Hi everyone! My name is Amanda and I am so glad that you stopped by here for a visit. I am grateful for all of my readers and I sincerely hope that you find this to be a place to pop in every-so-often to grab a story that makes you whisper “me too” in your heart or a nugget of inspiration that makes you shout “I am enough” or “I can do this” out into the universe.
As a young child, I always found writing to be a really helpful way for me to process experiences, conversations, problems, and relationships in my life. I often wrote letters to people I was close to and found that I was able to better communicate myself with words on paper than words in person sometimes. Growing up, I found comfort in writing assignments at school and oddly enjoyed working on interesting research projects or free-writing tasks.
Now, as an adult, I still turn to writing as a means of therapy and since becoming a mother, I have found it a very useful tool for me to express myself and, more importantly, help other women to do the same.
I write to unite women in our journey here together. I write to encourage women to better themselves from a place of self-love so they can be the best moms they can be. I write to share my experience as a special education teacher coupled with research regarding my own parenting beliefs in an effort to provide a helping hand and alternative perspectives for those looking for them. I write to share my knowledge from my studies in holistic health coaching and my own ten years as a client in psychotherapy with the hope of helping to heal others’ minds, bodies and souls.
I am not an expert on motherhood, nor am I an expert on parenting… I am also not a therapist or a spiritual healer… but I am a real mom just like so many of you reading this and I care about our well-being and the future of our children. I believe in us and I believe in the power of writing. I believe in our stories and in the strength of our compassion for one another. I believe in you.
Enjoy the journey & come back soon.
