You know you’ve reached a certain level of mommy hood when your excitement is a new washing machine! A bigger, and more water efficient model at that! It detects the setting of my load? Takes less soap? And get this, when I was shopping for my new machine, I actually saw one washed AND dried in one machine! That will be all mine in the future!!
January 1st. Day ONE of 2016. I found this a perfectly suitable day to kick off the new year and my new blog series: The Mom Chronicles.

Changing your perspective is one of those easier said than done deals. All great in text books, but applying it to your daily life requires commitment and hard work. On a mission myself for personal growth, I had just finished watching a periscope video from one of my favorite top income earners and life coaches, Ray Higgons.

He said when you look hard enough at every given situation, there is a lesson to be learned, and with a little patience, you may actually learn something about yourself, the other person, or life in general.
Nothing’s better than knowing the gift you have to offer to the world. For many years, I knew I was a good mom, a good person, and a hard worker, but I didn’t know what my purpose in life was or what I wanted to be when I grew up. My life was pretty much like a bad storm.
Well, this is a long time in the making! Where to start? There are just so many things, people, events and circumstances that have gotten me to where I am today. I really don’t even know where to begin my story… but I think I can pinpoint four major circumstances that have occurred in my life allowing me to break away from the norm, the conventional life stye that so many consider the “norm”, or how a proper Greek girl should be living her life. I’ll start with those. That will be give you a good foundation for how I ended up following a road less traveled, deviated away from the status quo, and broke free from the grind of a 9-5 lifestyle.
