Rebekah. Bekah. Bex. Any of those are fine, just not Becky, k?
Married since 2012 to man of beyond my dreams who is both genius and moron but YAY SOMEONE MARRIED ME!!
Firstborn daughter July 2012 – we called her the screaming banshee because that’s what she was. But now she’s kind of a fabulous four year old and totally emotionally sensitive and social as all hey-ho and kind of brilliant (UM, hello, that’s my mini-me)! She had ADHD and some other troubles of her own, but I’m mom of the century so we are already working on that.
Then there’s the little dude. He was born January 2014. Long story short, he was 2 lbs, 13 oz. and in the NICU for a month. He has several appointments per week (like physical therapy and speech) but he is hilarious and works so hard. My miracle baby.
I’ve been diagnosed with MDD and GAD and OCPD and IBS and Bipolar Disorder and ADHD and who knows what else. But I refuse to let those things keep me from dreaming big and reaching those #goals ! I want my children and other people who struggle with hidden or not-so-hidden struggles to see that success is still an option. Failure is not our default just because we’ve got special physical or physiological or psychological challenges.
I’ve always been told that I’m “honest” (aka “blunt”), and that people appreciate my authenticity. I kind of feel like it is a gift that I’m meant to share with others. Authenticity is like a domino, once one person barfs out their crap all over the place, others feels safe to do so as well. So I’ll go first, and then hopefully we can build a community of authentic people, sound good?
Oh, and I also happen to sell LuLaRoe. I started my LuLaRoe addiction in the summer of 2015 and signed on as a consultant in December 2015. And then LuLaRoe exploded. But I love it and I finally feel like I’ve found a place to use my love of people and my desire to help people become their better selves and its through the most comfortable and adorable clothes on the planet so BONUS POINTS.
