The AbunDANCE of Life!
"Create a life of abundance and learn to Dance within it!"
I've learned that the way you define yourself and the stories we create can pull you backward or propel you forward. For many years the meaning of abundance has brought me negative associations to that of extreme needs, unnecessary material things, and a selfishly, ungrateful life. As you can imagine it has kept me away from wanting it. I woke up this morning and have redefined abunDANCE to find that within it there is a DANCE! As you know, I certainly love to dance and perhaps some may say with no end. Therefore life with abundance is one that we should learn to dance with. The way we can live with abundance in a healthy and profound way is to eliminate fear of it and create a path where abundance serves all those we wish to inspire. Fill your cup with abundance of love, passion and courage and pour out the fears you have associated to it. Find the tools to make your dreams a reality. Define and redefine your story in life, so that it may serve you best in order to serve others. Create meaning in your purpose here on this earth and we will all be humbled with abundance. Join me as we redefine our fears and create space for the abunDANCE of life! So tell me, what is your purpose?
My purpose: To create abundance in life to serve those around me with the gifts I have been given. Click on image to learn how I plan to do just that...

What is love?
As the end of Valentines day is near, I sit and am reminded that love has so many ways of surfacing itself. We first experience love as children feeling love for and from our parents, then we grow to love our friends and learn that love can also be about heartbreak as we fall in love (If you've never suffered a broken heart, dont tell us!). The challenges we face with love as adults can sometimes be an endless road as it is often associated with heartache, but then we become parents! That is when the true meaning of love presents itself. We open our hearts willingly to our children, without reservation, fear, or conditions. It is not a temporary relationship...it is a true promise kept for life. One that lasts forever no matter the distance or time. It is knowing when to give love and when to back off giving space to find themselves. It is accepting that you may be dissappointed, but you will never stop loving them. It is having the future uncertain, but the foundation of your heart securely fastened for the ride. Our children help us understand love in ways we may never have experienced before. We teach them what love is all about, so if you ever get stuck in the lesson of love, just look in their eyes and share what they mean to you...that is love!

It seems hard to believe, but I too once carried a big belly and loved almost all of it (with the exception of the summer months). I gave birth in September 2006 having carried Maya in my belly thru the hottest months of the year. So thank g-d for air conditioning! Many of you see me as this little petite woman but I can prove that yes, I was once prego. Here's a photo from my 9th month... Enjoy! ;0)
And below is a photo of me teaching my very first Stroller Strides class in July 2007. Maya was only 6 months old when I bought the franchise and started my mission to build the very first Stroller Strides program on Long Island. It has been a crazy, fun, stressful, emotional, fullfilling journey....AND WORTH EVERY MINUTE!
So when people ask me how did you get in shape, I say it takes time, and in some cases years, to get fit and stay healthy! It is not the end result but the journey that makes it all worth the wait. So I invite you all to join us and see how much fun it can be to become a healthy, strong...LIfitMom! Thank you all for the support and inspiration to keep planting more seeds for us all to grow and nurture ourselves. I am truly grateful to have you all in my life (and of course your little ones too!)
Nothing is Impossible!
