My Story and my ‘WHY’

Posted · Add Comment

These are my reasons WHY…. 4 years ago a major life event opened my eyes and gave me the courage to work towards letting go of my past, face my fears and pursue my dreams. 4 years ago, I gave birth to my beautiful (inside & out) daughter Evelina. You see at the time I […]

Moms! You have a choice to set the right example

MOMS – YOU HAVE A CHOICE!!!

I made a choice 3 years ago to not have my daughter see me tearing myself down in front of the mirror.  I made a choice for her to not see me saying hateful things about myself. I made a choice for her to see me getting stronger and working hard to become the best […]

Who am I? I am woman but feel like a girl ha ha…I always get confused about my age too (of course I always think I am younger than I am…I am 32 years young and I get to be this age all the way until December!).  My name, Aida, means ‘joyful’ and surprisingly, I […]
