My Full Story
Hi! My name is Diane and I am a mindfulness, parenting and meditation coach. I help people grow more mindful of themselves, their parenting style, and to help raise mindful children. There is more to me than my coaching. Here is my story...
I am originally from Massachusetts but moved down to Florida at the age of 5. I consider myself a full on Floridian since I have been here the majority of my life. I grew up with my mom and older sister. I loved playing outdoors, but I also loved being inside with myself, my imagination, and my TV. I met my husband when I was 20 and we have been together since the day we met. I can honestly say I am married to my best friend. We have three boys together who fill me with love, meaning, and insanity at times ( just being transparent here). I am a deep feeling human. No seriously, I feel things so deeply I can cry about anything. Raising kids has changed my whole outlook of myself and life. I grew to be a better person because of them. So even thou they can make me feel crazy at times, I truly don't know where or what I would be in this world without them.
Nature, books, and coffee, make me happy. I also like cooking, writing, and practicing yoga. I am an advocate for all things like mental health, self love, motherhood support, and human rights.
Motherhood inspired me to do what I love doing (hence the name MomInspired). I used to feel like I was drowning in motherhood. I lost my sense of self, I was almost always in a bad mood, depression had a hold of my life, I felt all the negative emotions you can feel when you become a mom and lose yourself in the process of it. One day I decided I was done feeling like this and I decided to make changes to be a better person, mother, and partner. I started doing the work from within to find out who this new person was & what she needed. I did a lot of soul searching, healing, and started looking for real support (even if it was online.) Mindfulness and meditation transformed my life. I started being more present, changed my parenting style, and took care of myself more. My personal experience with these tools inspire me to teach and help others. That's how I have landed here today, sharing my story with you and helping other parents who are looking for that same support and guidance. I look forward to getting to know you all more in this journey we all share together called life.
