In 2015, I read OOLA; FIND BALANCE N AN UNBALANCED WORLD & met the oola guys, listened to them speak and the rest is history...I stopped waiting for change, rather- I became the change- some good- some bad- but there’s a reason for it all.
From 2015-2016 I was reintroduced to MYSELF. AND BOY DID I MISS HER! 💜
During that first real year of self-growth, I found the old me, whom I hadn’t seen since my early 20’s. I forgot how cool the old me was! ✌🏼💜 I realized for most of my relationship with my EX, I was relying on my EX to change. He wasn’t going to change. Why should/would/could I have expected him to? If fatherhood wasn’t changing him- nothing would. The only thing that was going to stop me from waiting for change, was to get off my booty and make the changes myself. AND THAT’S WHAT I DID. Unfortunately, my personal growth got in between my EX and I- it effected our relationship, and not in a good way. I found a new faith community that I felt was more in line with my personal beliefs. (Hello, my name is Kaley and I’m a recovering Catholic). I felt closer to God than ever. I let Jesus take the wheel. I believed in God’s plan so much that I found a forever peace with divorce. It was a scary choice that I NEVER saw as part of my plan. Still- I’m GRATEFUL 💜 I will be forever grateful for OOLA. IT CHANGED MY LIFE... The OOLA Guys- their philosophy and now LIFE COACH PROGRAM 💜🙌🏻- have helped me truly understand that sometimes, not only is divorce ok, but necessary for your own growth and mental well-being - as a parent- it’s our job to provide a healthy life for our kids...sometimes that health starts within YOU. Sometimes the only way to be happy and healthy is by making scary changes. Sometimes it hurts but I can’t imagine my life any different. I’m glad I stopped waiting- for 10 years- I was waiting at a train station, for a train that was never scheduled. Don’t be me.
Y aunque la adoro y me encanta pasar tiempo con ella, ultimamente esta super demandante y no tengo tiempo ni de respirar sino la tengo en brazos. La quiero, en serio que la quiero, pero necesito un poco de espacio para mi, poder hacer cosas que me hacen feliz como leer un libro, o ducharme... cuando me decian mis clientas mamas que desde que tenian a sus hijos ir a la pelu o ducharse eran un lujazo y sus momentos zen yo era de las que pensaba que exageradas, y de las que juzgaban duramente a esas mamis... ahora me trago mis palabras y digo que si, que es un lujo el día que puedo hacerme una mascarilla en el pelo o en la cara. Y la quiero, pero algun “me cago en todo” he soltado cuando me he estado visitiendo y ella ha empezado a berrear, y subiendome las bragas mientras voy a donde esta ella me he dado un golpe en alguna parte del cuerpo y ni quejarme del dolor he podido... y se que ahora sere la mama exagerada para alguna de vosotras que como yo he sido juez. Una de las tantas cosas que me dijo aquella persona es la de ser menos juez y más tolerante, y creo que muchas más deberían aplicarselo. Ser mama es un trabajo a tiempo completo y mal pagado! .
Some times you gotta run out the door with no makeup. Well today is that day for me. 🤗
I gotta say a few years ago you never would of caught me without my foundation on. Because of the skin care & makeup I use i can now leave the house in a hurry & say no makeup day & feel good about myself. ❤
My makeup helps to heal my skin. Does yours? Makeup shouldn't dry you out & make your skin worse. If it does message me! Maskcara Beauty makeup heals your skin each time you use it. No dryness ladies. Best makeup I've ever used!

It finally happened. This mama got attacked by the Winter chill, and went down hard; 102 fever, stuffy and runny, sneezing, coughing, aching, pain everywhere.
This was my first experience being truly ill as a mother. That sh*t is no joke.
It started Monday and Reli was her usual toddler self (loud, exhausting, wild, fussy, clingy). Tuesday was the worst of it. That evening as Jared and Reli came home from getting supplies, my fever peaked and I felt like death.
My little girl ran over to where I was overly bundled up on the couch to greet me, and as she attempted to climb into my lap, I busted up crying.
Full on sobbing, a rare sight for my kiddo.
She stepped back and looked at me with wide and worried eyes. I continued to cry and apologized for not being able to pick her up. Jared came in and explained mama wasn't feeling good, then picked her up and placed her next to me so he could cook.
I expected her to climb on me or some other toddler action, but instead she pulled some of my blanket onto her lap, put her arm out, and let me lay my head on her lap. We snuggled like this until Jared had dinner ready.
My two year old showed this incredible amount of compassion all evening and into the next day. She was patient and kind, and eager to make me feel better; she helped get me Gatorade and tissues and checked my temperature. She gave me the sweetest cuddles, and space when I needed it.
I just have to say - being patient and compassionate with your child (although difficult at times) is so worth it, because they deserve it as much as we do, and one day they'll return the favor.
