If I could go back and talk to my five-year-old self, I'd say, Now don't worry you're dressed like a school girl...years from now you will go through many changes, obstacles, and you will mourn but most of all you will DANCE! You were born to THRIVE! {{ GRATUITOUS CHILDHOOD PHOTO }} #kindergarten #myselfportrait #lookingback #throwback #corduroy #childhood #photo #thrive #dance #changes #loss #grief #life #chinup #school #dearme #hustle

Armageddon, Civil War , or WW III...All I can say is I hope my Dr.'s surgery takes you down and excision surgery #2 works wonders! I don't like wars but if #endometriosis that has had me bedridden and ill beyond belief the last few months...I call war but with my Dr. causing a halt on January 22nd, 2018. This is an atypical post for me but I must break the silence.#war #endometriosis #nocure #life #brave #warriors #endowarrior #surgery #anesthesthia #hope #educate #beavoice #silentillness #nomore #pain #strength #journey #empower #endometriosisawareness #newyear #educate #endo #unitedforacure #researchneeded #funding #health #thisismyfightsong #meinendo #endolife #womenshealth

One Moment Mr. Coco is alert & ready to help Santa get things done...and the next moment he has fallen asleep on his new friend. I told others I was hanging with my Gnomies and here they are❤️ Now, back to the Christmas Duties...#santa #coco #puppy #shitzu #christmas #tistheseason #gnomies

This is so last week but as I attended a Holiday party with my amazing former coworkers/ family (site closure) and enjoyed being "non bedridden" for half a day. My daughter got to "ring the bell" on another skill set. My friend was able to capture a snipet of the magic. Team bound for Gymnastics. She was over the moon as she then repeated this pullover 3 times as required. Tiny but mighty. We kind of live at the Gym but not as much as we will be soon. #gymnastics #eat #breathe #train #discipline #pullover #daughter #momlife #glow #radiant #passionforgymnastics #tiny #mighty #girl

Took these two Girls with me to get a pedicure. Of course, my daughter and her friend voted to get pampered also. #girls #winterbreak #fun #sleepover #momlife #daughter #friend #pedicure

Proud Mom Moment. Extremely blessed that my daughter is exceeding expectations of 3rd Grade. Parent // Teacher Conference was very good. My girl is at a 5th or 6th Grade reading level. Very Good in Math. Highly commented by her amazing teacher in her handwriting. Described as beautiful. My daughter is above all levels in her Elementary School Education. I am blessed by her and she amazes me every day. Most importantly, she has a HUGE heart❤️❤️❤️ #momlife #daughter #raisingthefuture #education #third #grade #blessed #parent #teacher #conference #successful

I am Thankful for many things. Oh, so many things, people, and the giving hearts of others. However, when your electricity goes out and you have NO way to prepare #coffee I am ever so grateful that #dutchbros gave me free coffee to try and jumpstart my day as we need to travel to family and well...Coffee is "Magical". #thankful #grateful #blessed #nopower #thanksgiving

Just sharing as I allowed myself to date and fall in love (yes, a picky single mom) and this song helped me realize that...I loved him but I love me more. I have had my smile back for a bit and the video in no way represents how I spend my day and/or nights at all. The Song though...Helped me realize that I was worth far more and it was wise to end it. Although, a bit painful. I was able to fall out of love per se. It took time but I suffered from #emotional #abuse that I was unaware of until I checked in with my heart and the seat of my soul was stirred. I have not spoke of this a lot but felt like sharing. Love this singer #broken #beautiful #empower & so many more. I think I may date again and take the risks of falling in love or just enjoy the dating life. Someone is out there...Maybe, someday! #music #moves #my #soul Thank you @iammaggierose #iam #living #again #wishing #i #could #meet #this #amazing #singer #maggierose
