Creating a life that you absolutely LOVE!

Hi, I'm Bridgette. I empower moms to reconnect with their identities OUTSIDE of being a mom, without the guilt.

Redefining what it looks like to be a good mom.

As moms, we feel so much pressure to have it all together, look great, be patient with our kids, have a perfect marriage, and love every second of our life.

Motherhood is hard. I don't care what you tell me. It's hard. It can be lonely. We can feel like failures. We have doubts. We can feel even unsatisfied. GASP!

All of that "less than, not-good-enough, un-pinterest-worthy" C-R-A-P led me to have a breakdown.

No, really. Like a legit, in bed, not getting dressed for days, breakdown.

This is not how motherhood was meant to be. Let's change that.

We are actually really great moms, we've just gotten caught up with the busyness of family life.

Let's stop doing the same shit, and start doing the shit that actually matters.

In 2008 I became a Mom! I was so excited and blessed for this privilege. The first few years of being a mom are kind of a blur between sleepless nights with our twins to documenting every “first” in our new life. Nothing could have prepared me for how amazing life could be, but also how difficult life could be.

I poured every ounce of me into my children. Partly because I love them, of course. But, partly to ignore all of the other past and present issues that I had going on in my life. I used my children to keep myself busy enough to avoid my problems.

Then in 2014, I had a legit breakdown.

“The undeniable reality is that how well you do in life and in business depends not only on what you do and how you do it, your skills and competencies, but also on who is doing it with you or to you. Who is helping you? Who is fighting you? Who is strengthening you or resisting and diminishing you? These people are literally making you who you are. Who is helping you build those skills and competencies? Who is tearing them down? Other people do have power in your life, for good or bad. But, what kind of power are others going to have over your life and performance? Are they going to enhance or diminish?”

~Dr. Henry Cloud, The Power of the Other

Avoiding problems only causes them to grow.

Unfortunately, avoiding problems doesn’t make them go away. It was the most difficult, but the most rewarding, event that I have ever been through. My breakdown forced me to begin my journey of intense personal development. I went through counseling, I read dozens of self-help books, began exercising, meditation, and overall learning how to take care of myself and make myself a priority again.

I also began to question everything. Who I was friends with? Why was I friends with them? What activities was I involved in? How did I spend my time? Even analyzing the clothing that I wore and why.

I took everything off my plate and I started fresh. I reinvented myself. I lost some friends along the way. I gained some new ones too. I stopped doing some of things that I thought I loved. And, I found new activities to love that benefited my family and I even more.

If you are feeling overwhelmed, tired, and frustrated, I understand.

I understand because I was there.

As it turns out, having a breakdown back in 2014 was a blessing in disguise. Since then, I’ve figured out how do to all the things I can’t wait to share with you! Things like building meaningful relationships, taking time for yourself, saying no to things that you don’t like doing, and creating a life that you are excited about every morning when you wake up.

Though I still have goals to achieve and mountains to climb, I’m only where I am because I surrounded myself with the right people and followed the guidance of someone who was already doing what I wanted to do.

And, today, I can honestly say that I've never been happier and healthier, and I am living a life that I absolutely love. And, I know that you can too.


I want to see you change. I want to see you succeed. I want to see you living a life that you absolutely LOVE. And, I want you to feel like you can conquer the world. Because, yes you fucking can.
