The Many Faces of Perseverance: Topic Finding Yourself Through Community

As a woman and mother, something that I’m increasingly passionate about is community. I was a SAHM until my son was two, and I definitely lost myself during that time.  I started an Instagram page for my son to just post photos of him in his outfits.  Little did I know it was going to help me get out of my funk.  The best thing that came out of that page was the huge community of moms I found who…

The Many Faces of Perseverance: Topic Never let Someone else tell you who you are

Not everyone lives this pretty perfect picture of success. From the outside looking in some might assume I’ve always had all my sh** together, but really that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Yes, I’m a doctor, and a dietitian but if you had asked me 10 years ago where I would be today, I couldn’t have told you. I sure wouldn’t have believed that the girl who struggled with her weight her whole life would be teaching women to…

Rest it up, you Deserve it

REST I am the type of person who tries to do everything at once, and doesn’t think that I need to make time to slow down. Such a simple word right? yet we all have such a hard time taking time to do it, myself included.  I am the type of person that has two planners, and tries to be the best mom I can be, go to work full time, go to school full time, stay consistent with working…

The Many Faces of Perseverance: Topic Losing A Parent

I try to keep things positive and not dwell on the negative in situations. But it is time for me to slow it down and get real. I was invited to take part in a blogger series by Alexa with Healthy Dash of Sass about perseverance – how I struggled through a situation and came through it. I am hoping that opening up about this and sharing my journey through the loss of a parent will somehow, someday help someone else. Help them see that there…

The Many Faces of Perseverance: Topic Burnout

Burnout is real, ya’ll. As a graduate student and up-and-coming social worker, I often hear a ton about the importance of self-care. But what classifies as self-care exactly? One way to figure out the best methods for self-care is to focus on…well, yourself. Take note of what’s ailing you lately. In other words, take the time to figure out if you’re burnt out. You might be asking yourself this: how do I know if I’m burnt out? Or, in lamens…

The Many Faces of Perseverance: Topic Persevere no Matter what Others have to say

  My story of perseverance actually doesn’t start with me, it starts with my parents. Both of my parents left their countries in their 20s to better themselves and reach their fullest potential. My mother is from Puerto Rico and my father is from Egypt. They met on the streets of New York and got married soon after. I was born in New York and lived there for about 9 years. After a few bad years of barely surviving, my…

The Many Faces of Perseverance: Topic You Actually Don’t Want This

You Actually Don’t Want This. Have you ever wondered why God wouldn’t give you something that you were SO SURE would be great? Have you spent time begging God to give you something you really wanted like a new job you applied for or a date from a man you talk to sometimes who is really kind? Did you hear a no, did the job never call for an interview and the man never follow through for a date? Or…

The Many Faces of Perseverance: Featuring Jessica Pickering

I pride myself on my strength. I’ve always been resilient and for years I wouldn’t didn’t show my real emotions. I was a rock, I never asked for help when I needed it. I believed that I could work through any of my struggles on my own. I had my weaknesses, although I wouldn’t admit them to anyone. I only showed my strengths to the world and my private struggles were only known within the home. I failed out of…
