Latorsha: She Rocks

I am woman hear me ROAR!!

The days of working lots of overtime to get mo’ money took its toll at times.
The newlywed phase didn't last as long as I would have liked. The honeymoon doesn't last forever.
Gaining 40+ pounds during pregnancy tried to hinder my self esteem.
Sleepless nights filled with crying, nursing, diaper changes, etc. felt like it would kill me at times.
Going from full time working mom to son's activity chauffeur and play date planner was quite an adjustment.


But I still rock!

Sure I got knocked down and blindsided a few times.
BUT YET, I found I could still rock heels, yes the 3 inch ones at times.
I could still rock the hair, the makeup and the glam!
I'm not a great fashionista but I rock what I know!
Since I made exercise a part of my life I'm also rocking the shorts, tank tops, and yes even the bikini!
Now I just didn't pull my "rock it" ways out of a bag!

It took time to get back to me.

You know, time to get back to the things that make me a better wife, mom, friend, family member and ultimately a team player in all that I do.

Taking time for me and learning to enjoy the moment is one way that I got started getting back to me.
However, your story isn't my story, we are all beautifully unique.

What makes you rock? You know, when do you feel and look your best?
Talk to me. I'm listening.
