Before I changed my life, I was living in constant stress and despair. My kids were 6 years old and 2 years old (twins). I was tired, living on autopilot, having resentment towards my husband and didn’t even take care of myself.

I had to change my life if I wanted to feel happier and better. So I did! I took action in taking care of myself, prioritizing my joy and decided that playing the victim was not getting me anywhere.
