Hi and Welcome to Simply Intentional Life!
My name is Becky and I am a wife, mom of 2 little boys, part-time Physician Assistant and business owner.
I became a Physician Assistant almost 12 years ago and I love what I do, but after having my second son in 2014, I realized that I wanted to be home with my kids more. At that time I was working 32+ hours per week and felt so much stress and pressure every single day that I knew something had to give.
My husband and I started a budget and everything seemed to fall into place from there. I started meal planning because I had to keep our food budget low in order to continue to pay off debt. This helped with the stress of not knowing what to plan for dinner each night and it helped keep me organized with each meal.
I also battled some depression after my second son was born. I was depressed because I didn’t have goals and didn’t have time to dream. I ended up finding personal development books and started getting up early each morning to make time for myself. This helped the depression and I started dreaming again. As Moms, I think it is normal to question your purpose at some point because often the goals you had before motherhood change or are put on hold because of raising a family. But you should never feel like you can’t dream because you are a Mom. God made you for a unique purpose and He wants you to use your gifts.
I ended up getting involved with a sales company and started a blog about healthy living. That blog never survived and I realized that I am not good at sales, but one thing I did realize was that I love to write. Blogging soon became my passion.
Then, I started a blog in 2014 to discuss how my husband and I were paying off debt, but I realized a short time later that I really wanted to help women- specifically Moms with time management, meal planning, budgeting and help them stay motivated to achieve thier goals. This is my passion. I love helping women and I love to build them up and help them see their potential in who they are.
I want to help you find balance. I know how stressful everyday life is with morning routines, getting yourself ready, breakfast, packing lunches, getting the kids to school, homework routine, bedtime routine, budgeting, meal planning, cleaning, organizing, decluttering and working. It is exhausting and my goal is to help you create systems so you can automate some of the necessary stuff and not feel weighed down by all you have to do in a day. Specifically, I want to help you find a meal planning regimen that works well for you, help you create a budget that you can stick to, and help you manage your time better so you make time for yourself and start dreaming again.
I wish I could sit down and have cup of coffee with you and hear all about what is going on in your life. I know motherhood is beautiful and stressful (and some days it is a little of both) and I know sometimes you just need another Mom who gets it.
I want to come alongside you and help you where you’re at so you can live the life you want to live. If you feel overwhelmed, let’s get started with the most stressful thing and go from there. I am a firm believer that action is the best cure for overwhelm.
My passion is helping women realize their potential and realize that they can build the life they dream of. As women, we often lack courage, self-esteem and confidence to pursue our goals. Not only that, but we often find ourselves so busy with the day to day activities that we don’t allow ourselves the time or we feel too guilty to pursue our passions.
The biggest turning point in my life in so many ways was when we started to get serious about our debt and really started to strive for financial freedom. I was finally able to put everything into perspective and put material things aside and focus on my lifelong dreams.
I have a dream that this blog will be a place of inspiration, motivation and will be a catalyst for you to start taking action so you don’t feel overwhelmed.
