Once upon a time, I was a single parent

Once upon a time, a long long time ago, I was a single parent with the desire to be the best parent I could be to this my dependent child.

With everything in me, I desired to be present and alert.  Although the desire was great, I didn’t have a clue about how much I didn’t know.  At one point it became clear that I wasn’t doing a great job despite the desire. I didn’t have the knowledge I needed, I didn’t have the time, and I certainly didn’t have the health and energy.

I remember deciding enough was enough and started to seek out ways to have the time, get the knowledge and create health and energy.  As the saying goes, “When the student is ready the teacher appears.” My teachers appeared and my life has never been the same. The first teacher appeared as the opportunity of Herbalife Nutrition.  This became my vehicle to those things I wanted. It had the promise of time, personal development and health and energy.

And it promised a whole lot more. Things I had put aside as things that would probably not be part of my life. I discovered the products which changed the way I felt inside and out and gave me extra drive at the end of the day and beginning of the week. I discovered this man named Jim Rohn (www.jimrohn.com) whose words rang true and challenged my philosophies.

Today with now 4 kids, my desire to be a present parent is still as strong and constant but now available to me, thanks to the work done in our amazing business.  After 13 years of being present, available yet stationary in this life’s work and adventure of raising our girls, we are moving our adventure abroad, to new places and countries. What I never imagined would be possible is now a becoming a reality for us. We will be keeping our home base but setting out on mobile adventures as often as opportunity arises.

In the course of planning for these mobile adventures, it dawned on me how much of our life we simply let pass by, not recognizing how many “adventures” we have throughout our day. So along our actual movement in the upcoming months and years, we have been and will continue to be on the lookout for all the adventures that happen along each of our days.  All in all, we hope you enjoy watching our daily happenings, goings and comings as we document it for ourselves!
