Wife, Mother, Goal Getter
GOAL ONE: BE AN EXCEPTIONAL WIFE
My husband, Tyler, and I have been married for five years. The saying, “time flies when you are having fun” speaks true. Of course, our marriage isn’t perfect, but what marriage is? We are in this journey together and so long as we have each other, we have everything we need. Our vows still hold true- I promise that I will walk with you hand in hand wherever our journey leads us. Living, Learning, Loving together forever.
GOAL TWO: BE AN EXCEPTIONAL MOTHER
Tyler and I have two beautiful children. Samuel, age three and Rowyn, age one. They bring us so much joy and showed me a new kind of love…. one that I honestly can’t even put into words. I LOVE BEING A MOM! I love watching them grow, learn and explore. I love watching them interact, play and plot together…. seriously, what one doesn’t think of the other will. (Just the other day Samuel laid on the floor so Rowyn could stand on top of him to climb up on to the couch!)
GOAL THREE: BECOME AN ESTABLISHED-CERTIFIED HEALTH AND WELLNESS COACH
I want to live my best life and one way I can do that is to help others reach their goals and live their best lives. I want to be a motivator, I want to make a positive impact, I want to make a lasting impression.
Just to quickly mention… Everyone is different, we all have our own dreams, our own goals and internal motivators. Sure we all want to live well, but what does wellness mean to you? I want to help others dig deep, find what motivates them, define their goals and chase their dreams.
I want to set a good example for my children. I want to show them that no dream is too big or too small. I want to instill good habits, a value for health and wellness and courage.
The final tipping point was in January, when I became diagnosed with Acral Lentiginous Melanoma, on the bottom of my foot. I had to have a procedure to remove the rest of the cancer from my body which left me with a huge circular hole in the arch of my foot (2 inches in diameter and a quarter inch deep.)
I was unable to go to the gym, run or even walk for weeks. This was difficult, especially with two tiny humans and considering I have always been pretty active. (I have ran half marathons, participated in sprint triathlons and just recently a full marathon.) I was so bummed, but that’s when I realized there is more to health and wellness than just being physically active.
There are so many moving pieces in a person’s life that we simply cannot focus on just being physically fit. Sure, I can run 26.2 miles, but I still struggle with anxiety. I may walk a mile every day, but I still eat way to much candy.
I HAVE SEVEN OTHER GOALS, AND MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, I’LL SHARE THEM WITH YOU SOME DAY…
