I have to take a minute to thank all of my followers, aka BLOOMERS. Thank you for your support!
My RBT EXAM TUTORING service is also doing well…thank you to everyone…small businesses benefit so many of us. Here’s a look at my new logo for RBT Exam Tutoring Service.
If you have a dream, what ever it is, be willing to work towards it. Sometimes you will have to be your own cheerleader, and find your motivation from within. Don’t let that stop you from reaching your dreams.
I am so excited and feeling a sense of pride as I watch my dreams become reality 💜
On Monday, I turned 50 years old!!! Happy birthday to me…and happy it was. On Sunday I was surprised by my brothers with a party and gifts…I had the pleasure of hearing my nieces and nephews sing to me…it was beautiful.
On Monday I arrived at work to the entire 5th grade wishing me a happy birthday, followed by a visit from my son and daughter in law. This more than made my day.
And just because they love me my friends invited me to a dyslexia workshop, I left knowing new things and with a wonderful self care bundle of goodies.
At the age of 50 I can honestly say I’m completely fulfilled. Three distinguished sons, a successful business and a comfortable home. Life is great!
What are you doing in the next few days to to replenish yourself? How are you celebrating every day? Share with us in the comments.

I love fall(or autumn; as they say in some parts). I love that it’s like a lazier more calm spring..lol. Fall has warm days and cooler evenings, football games and of course, my favorite holiday of all ….MY BIRTHDAY!!
One of my favorite things to do in the fall is to wrap in a blanket on a cool evening, drink hot tea and watch the sun set.
If you know anything about me from this blog, it’s that blankets, fuzzy socks and plants, are like my all time favorite gifts to get and give. I found these cute fuzzy slippers at Target (not an ad) and I couldn’t resist buying them, i would have bought them in every color if they’d had them. They are definitely the cutest, not to mention soooo comfortable.
Well, I guess I’m back to the grind. School is back in session, I’m tutoring RBTs and seeing clients for ABA therapy, on my free time and just started a YouTube channel to bring it all together in one place. I stay busy…but I LOVE what I do.
Remember to take care of yourself, if you need a break, take it….if you need to say NO, say it! Love you with all you’ve got!?
Genuine Kindness has almost become a thing of the past. Nowadays, if someone does something kind for someone they want to make a video or take a picture of it just to make sure the world knows what they did. This morning I had the “pleasure” of making my first video for my RBT class …after 32(literally) takes and four wardrobe changes..lol…I finally made something I felt “pretty ok” about sharing publicly. The KIND person who helped me do this new thing, was so incredibly patient with me and so encouraging; however she didn’t want me to thank her publicly or even acknowledge her in the video….’I didn’t do this for a thank you, I did it cas I love you”…”and you bet not cry and look crazy in the video” were her words to me as we hit our finally product. This is what’s needed more in the world, mine I know, maybe your world as well. Kindness is free, sharable and a lifestyle. #BeKind #video #NoCrying #LoveU #andOthers #checkOutMyVideo 😃😃 https://youtube.com/channel/UCf1yJqGkF_0Z2A0fSBgeo5Q
Life has a way of gut punching you when you least expect it.
I’ve had the air knocked out of me for the last few weeks and to be completely honest, I’m a better person because of it. I won’t share any specific topics of my sucker punches, just know the hits were low and hard. Had it not been for my ability to admit defeat and vow to rebuild, I would probably not be writing this right now.
Things are always going to happen that hurt us mentally, physically or emotionally, but the way we respond to the hurt is what separates the cubs from the lions. I, my friend, am a lion…a LIONESS to be more accurate. I am so glad I have a self care routine in place…and a few valued friends that were there for me in my time of craziness.
My encouragement for you today, is to take care of yourself, not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well. Do things that self comfort, like bubble baths and relaxing but do the hard stuff too. Know your limits, and set boundaries, and make them perfectly clear so no one and nothing crosses them. Say no when you need to..and mean it! Most importantly….be completely confident in knowing that you are worthy and you deserve good in your life. Change is tough…but so are you.
Welcome to BossladyBLOOMS…the personal blog of me, the Bosslady herself, as I bloom into my most authentic self. I hope the same for all of you. Being one hundred percent who you are is the best thing you can do for yourself and all those around you.
If you agree, one of the most important things you can do is to take care of yourself. That means rest when you’re tired, ask for help when you needed and set personal boundaries to protect you.
In addition to this list above…I personally added “do what makes you happy”. I got to do a lot of what makes me happy over the past weekend….I was invited to a new wine bar that’s only an hour away from my house. It was such a fun playful moment. In addition to eating some of the BEST wings I’ve ever had, I sipped some of the best Pinot noir…. delicious 💜. I also sang back up (really but not really) to Missy Elliott, one of my all time favorite artist. I have an absolutely horrible singing voice but it was loud and silly all night.
Next, on my quest for positive weekend vibes, I spent several hours at a craft vendor event with my sweet friend as she hosted a booth of her beautiful creations. I saw gorgeous jewelry, which I couldn’t help but buy a set, and tons of hand crafted original items.
Lastly, as I weekend vibe on, I was invited to watch the Olympic games at a pizza party. Ok…I have to admit, pizza made with a cauliflower crust is not my thing.
What did you do that made you happy this weekend? Did you sing along with your favorite singer? Did you taste a food that you never want to taste again?
Whatever you did this weekend, or whatever you do today…do something you love to do…and do a lot of it. Smile more, laugh alot and love even more.
Wishing all of you only the very best life has to offer 💜
