Are you a parent who notices there aren’t many personal stories about the struggles between parents and their teens? I read so much about lessons with new motherhood and elementary school years, but then it falls off. Crickets. . Well, lately it seems like my kids have been abducted by aliens and I want to talk about it.

Did you know it’s common for our teeth to crowd and move as we age? I didn’t like how this was happening to me, so I decided to try @invisalign clear tray straightening system. Not an ad! •••••• The company said I would need 20 trays (molds) which would take less than a year to straighten my teeth. After the initial year, they told me I needed 16 more! Then after those 16, they told me I needed another 4. Turns out it’s common to need more trays on Invisalign because our teeth can be stubborn. . I was so frustrated, but then I found a trick to wearing the braces! Now, I don’t mind that it’s taken 2 years to get straight teeth. . Check out my blog⬆️ in my profile link to read more about my love/hate relationship with this tooth straightening process! And don’t forget- it’s @amazon #primeday!

A bird is safe in a nest but that’s not what its wings are for. . “You can choose courage or you can choose comfort. You cannot have both.” ~Brene Brown . I’m thinking about this quote applied to my age group (I am 45). It feels safer to live in comfort but that can leave us feeling complacent. . It’s easy to get wrapped up in our kids to the point of self-loss. It’s easy not to go after something we want due to the fear of failure. It’s easy to say, “my time is over.” But we still have half our lives to live! Have you chosen to live with courage or comfort? I’m making an effort to choose courage. It’s hard sometimes, but important. I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! . . . . . #courageous #sundayinspiration #flylikeabird #selflovejourney #livewithpassion #goafteryourdreams #inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#positiveliving #liveyourbestlife#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens#inspireme #losangeleslifestyleblog#fitmom#thisis45 #gratefulheart #goafteryourdreams #livefully #thisis45 #flylikeabird #liveyourbestlife #inspiringpeople #thisis40 #gratefulheart #sundayinspiration #positiveliving #fitmom #momofteens #thehappylife #livewithpassion #inspirationaljournalist #alifeofintention #courageous #momsofinstagram #40something #inspireme #photojournalist #selflovejourney #lifeuned #losangeleslifestyleblog

Guys, my essay was featured on @todayparents this past Saturday! I’m smiling ear to ear! I’d love for you to read it (click my profile link👆) and share your thoughts. One of my goals is to write for publications so this is super meaningful to me! . My story was in response to their challenge question, “Who Are You?” I shared a personal story about how my insecurities shaped who I am. It was scary, but also cathartic. I know it will connect with and inspire many and for that, I’m humbled and grateful! . Step outside. Push yourself! It can be frightening but it’s worth it. Thank you @todayparents for the feature! . . . . #inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#positiveliving#liveyourbestlife#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#loveyourlifestyle#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens#southbay#parentingteam#losangeleslifestyleblog#reflecting #todayparentingteam #todayshow #mom2summit #livefully #parentingteam #liveyourbestlife #inspiringpeople #thisis40 #reflecting #positiveliving #momofteens #southbay #thehappylife #loveyourlifestyle #mom2summit #inspirationaljournalist #alifeofintention #momsofinstagram #40something #photojournalist #lifeuned #todayparentingteam #losangeleslifestyleblog #todayshow
🔹I just want to spend the rest of my life laughing. Laughter is the sound of our souls dancing, it’s the best form of therapy and it’s a language everyone can understand. Laughter makes us feel alive! Hope your Friday is filled with tear making, breath taking, loud belly laughs! . . . #laughmore #inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#positiveliving #liveyourbestlife#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens#southbay#inspireme #losangeleslifestyleblog#fitmom#thisis45 #gratefulheart #livefully #thisis45 #liveyourbestlife #inspiringpeople #thisis40 #gratefulheart #positiveliving #fitmom #momofteens #southbay #thehappylife #inspirationaljournalist #alifeofintention #momsofinstagram #40something #inspireme #photojournalist #lifeuned #losangeleslifestyleblog #laughmore
🔹45. Is age just a number? I can’t run as fast, eat as much, and need more sleep. My joints ache in the morning and it takes me three days to recover from a night out. But I have years of life experience that only time gave me with the knowledge of self which would have been hard to achieve in my 20s or even 30s. Because of this, l’m happier than I’ve ever been! For a girl who used to hate my birthdays, it sure feels good to appreciate them now! I shall celebrate all month, and today I will milk all the attention I can get from my hubbie as we go hiking near Malibu! Cheers to celebrating wisdom, love and the gift of life! . . . #inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#positiveliving #liveyourbestlife#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#loveyourlifestyle#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens#southbay#inspireme #losangeleslifestyleblog#fitmom#birthdaypost #thisis45 #itsmybirthday #gratefulheart#justwearthesuit #livefully #thisis45 #liveyourbestlife #inspiringpeople #thisis40 #gratefulheart #positiveliving #itsmybirthday #justwearthesuit #fitmom #momofteens #southbay #thehappylife #loveyourlifestyle #inspirationaljournalist #alifeofintention #momsofinstagram #40something #inspireme #photojournalist #lifeuned #losangeleslifestyleblog #birthdaypost

🔹 “What other people think of you is none of your business.” I’ve been hearing this quote lately, and it’s been giving me pause. It’s human nature to want approval and acceptance. But the reality is, when we are sure of ourselves, it really doesn’t matter what others think or say! I can’t tell you I’ve mastered this 100%, but I’m getting there. Hope you have a confident, inspiring, fulfilling weekend! . . . . . #puntamita#inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#positiveliving #enjoythejourney#liveyourbestlife#writeyourstory#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#loveyourlifestyle#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens #inspirationalwomen#southbay#inspireme #livewithpurpose #losangeleslifestyleblog#justwearthesuit #livefully #liveyourbestlife #inspiringpeople #thisis40 #positiveliving #puntamita #justwearthesuit #inspirationalwomen #momofteens #southbay #thehappylife #loveyourlifestyle #inspirationaljournalist #alifeofintention #writeyourstory #enjoythejourney #momsofinstagram #40something #inspireme #photojournalist #lifeuned #livewithpurpose #losangeleslifestyleblog

🔹My 12 year old son got his new bike stolen yesterday. Within 10 minutes after parking, it was taken. “Why didn’t you lock it?” “I thought we would be right there and I’d see it.” “Why didn’t you call us when it happened? “We thought we might be able to find it.” “What would you have done if you found the thief riding away on it?” “We would have told him to give it back.” . I am reminded on almost a daily basis- teenagers’ brains don’t reach full maturity until their 20s. Functions of the brain including attention, the ability to regulate emotions, logic, reasoning, and the ability to inhibit impulses are all skills which are developed over time physiologically and in practice. Incidents like these scare me! My husband and I are constantly surprised at the decision making skills of our boys and sometimes feel like it’s a never ending record playing the song, “what were you thinking?” I noticed so many parents get quiet about their kids during their teen years. I wonder if it’s because they are all dealing with the same issues! . It’s all part of raising our kids, this I know. I wish we could have a peek at them as adults so times like this I can be more settled. Life! I hope I’m getting the parenting part right. . . . . . #inspirationaljournalist#inspiringpeople#parentingblogger #alifeofintention#photojournalist#livefully#parentingteens #liveyourbestlife#writeyourstory#40something#lifeuned#thehappylife#loveyourlifestyle#momsofinstagram#thisis40#momofteens #inspirationalwomen#manhattanbeach #losangeleslifestyleblog #livefully #parentingteens #liveyourbestlife #parentingblogger #inspiringpeople #thisis40 #inspirationalwomen #momofteens #manhattanbeach #thehappylife #loveyourlifestyle #inspirationaljournalist #alifeofintention #writeyourstory #momsofinstagram #40something #photojournalist #lifeuned #losangeleslifestyleblog
