I’m a woman who had a fire ignite in her because I fell and got back up again. Not once, but two major times in my life. I learned a better way and I can show you too.

For years, I’ve been helping women just like you balance the needs of family with their own. I show mom’s how to restore joy, calm, and health by using the Basic 6 essentials for daily living. Because we all need a soft place to land when we are overwhelmed in our roles. When things get rough (as they tend to) it’s crucial to have the tools necessary to navigate back to center.

Here’s my story (in a nutshell)…

Fall # 1. Happened waaay back in 1996 when I cured my own IBS (not one of the many doctors I visited ever asked me about the food I ate or the life I lived)

The result I learned to live by: Be your own best advocate and ‘Question what you’re told.’ Period. No one has ALL the answers, and certainly not all of yours. Your life is unique to you and you need to learn how to
‘Own it and thrive.’
AND that means we need (to want) to know more about the bodies we live in than the technology we use. It’s that simple.

Fall # 2. After having my three kids. YES I love them, but I lost myself after becoming a mom. I was so busy trying to meet everyone else’s needs that I forgot my own (I know I’m not alone here). Anxiety hit me for the first time while drowning in the overwhelm of never feeling there’s enough of me – my time, my energy, my attention. I was frazzled, fried, and near empty. Then I had an epiphany (in part thanks to my beautiful husband).

Lesson learned: Everyone will suffer until you learn how to stay vital, because no one will ever be getting the best of you. Truth.

TODAY:

I live with my husband and best friend since 1996 and we’re raising our three very spirited children – two of whom have type 1 diabetes – which means they’re insulin dependent for life and blood sugar needs to be monitored 24/7. Everyday is a day they could literally die if we’re not vigilant. Because of this, I spend hours researching nutritional healing modalities and searching for cures.

“Full-on” mode is everyday and it’s not always easy. It never is. I get tired. That’s why I’ve found ways to embrace all of the paradoxes of parenting – the good, the bad, and the ugly – and know that it’s my choice how I want to show up. I get to choose me, just like you get to choose YOU.

I’m most certainly a work in progress – with a HUGE will to thrive. I don’t have all the answers (nobody does), but I have a driving passion for finding truths to live by, and the desire to continually learn and grow (and I have). Hats I wear include:

Certified NLP Master Practitioner (think mindset trainer)

Certified Integrative Health Coach (because we’re integrated whole beings)

Certified Women’s Wellness Educator (teaching about our body, mind, and spirit)

Certified Life Coach (working with human potential)

AND most importantly, Experience.

My intention behind this community I support (and created) is to have a soft space to land (when needed) and even more, a place to learn and grow from. Because we are nothing if we can’t understand our foundation. And we need permission to be more (than enough) in this walk of motherhood.

Here we talk about…

Integrating all of the essentials for well-being and

nourishing the woman within the mom.

That is how to keep this instrument of Life in Harmony
&
that’s the focus around here ~ Welcome!

To a place where we support one another – free of judgement – and learn and grow together.

It’s not about right or wrong.

It’s about what works for a Life in Harmony.

“Life is a novelty and it’s our gift. Embrace each day with a smile.”

My husband is a poet in his creative time and he wrote this. Not bad huh? Makes you think about our time here…

Well that’s a bit more about me. I’m glad you’re here and I invite you to share your stories with me as we journey together.
With grace and gratitude,

Arlene
