When Eleanor Roosevelt said, “Do something that scares you every day,” she wasn’t talking about watching a scary movie. She was talking about stepping outside your comfort zone. No, I didn’t ride this motorcycle but just sitting on it gave me a different perspective since motorcycles scare me.

My 14 yr old recently wrote a paper at school about how to face your fears. He used his passion for downhill mountain bike racing as an example of this. He told me that the only way to face your fear is to tackle it head-one. Smart boy!

Confidence is formed when you believe you will have a positive outcome, no matter the uncertainty present.

Research indicates that when you actually start doing the thing, you’re afraid of, your fear fades away. Better still, when you embrace the unknown and take that step forward, you open yourself up to new opportunities for happiness and fulfillment. After all, the best way to avoid regretting the things you didn’t do is to actually do them. What are you afraid of? Going to the Dr? Dentist? The fear of uncertainty is common just like the fear of failure or rejection. How about FOMO? With all the bad news we watch daily, it’s easy to have lots of different kinds of fear. #befearless #nofear #confidence #bloggerlife #lifestyleblogger #womensupportingwomen #femaleempowerment #dreamon #goodvibes

Most people don’t realize how painful Mother’s Day can be for those grappling with infertility and loss. But I do. I see you. I know your struggle and your heartbreak. I’ve been there myself. I want to say, without faith, hope and strength the journey feels hopeless.

On the heels of National Infertility Awareness month, I want to shed light on the challenges, misinformation, grief and hope surrounding infertility. One in eight couples has trouble getting pregnant. That’s significant.

I have been wanting to share my story for a long time. Just posted on the blog ( link in bio) at galpal.net.

The pain and angst year after year (a total of 14 years with both boys) is something you never get over. It's hard to even think about what we went through at times. I am so grateful to be a mother and I am so blessed. There are many women that never get to be parents ... it's a gift I will never take for granted . Reach out and be kind to those who suffer. #infertilitycommunity #infertilityawareness #infertilitysucks #womensupportingwomen #ivf #familymatters #boymom #momblogger #momsofinstagram #mommyandme

This Mother's Day week... temper that there is no "mother" without your "hood"- your mom tribe who support you. We all need to help one another no matter how old our kids are .

Who are the mothers in your life?

Life is hard. You are not alone. There always a mother nearby to help us fight the temptation to mother alone. The temptation to appear as if everything is great and perfect . Invite fellow authentic mothers into your reality. Standing together only makes you stronger. Battle together, love together, do life together. Be real in your choice and struggles.

The truth is every mother struggles with the same feelings of learning this in an ag inadequacy. Chances are they are looking at you wondering how you have it all together. We need each other for supporting and encouragement. #motherhood#supportmoms #standtogether #womensupportingwomen #mothertribe #momlife #momblogger #momsofinstagram #mommyandme
