The Princess and The Prosthetic

I’m Not

February 10, 2020 in Motherhood, Sentiments - No Comments

It never fails.

A new opportunity arises.  Or a new adventure.  A new season of life.  A new experience.

And we instantly go into a myriad of excuses as to why we can’t do it.  Why we aren’t good enough.  Why we are going to fail.

I’m not smart enough.

I’m not fast enough.

I’m not thin enough for a bikini.

I’m not a good enough writer.

I’m not fast enough.

I’m not good at math.

I’m not organized enough.

I’m not creative.

I’m not really funny.

I’m not really a great cook.

I’m not a good mom.

I’m not a good wife.

I’m not strong enough.


Why do we instantly focus on what we aren’t…..instead of what we are?

I approached Callie the other day about participating in the local FashionABLE fashion show.  Her immediate response was “Yes.  I FOR SURE definitely want to do that.  I am going to be the best model for them.”


At what point do we lose that?  That self assurance?  That confidence that we are incredible, majestic, beautiful and fierce beings?

So today, let’s choose to step back into that.  I’m choosing to focus on what I am…..instead of what I’m not.

I am a fighter.

I am resilient.

I am someone with a very joyful laugh.

I am tenacious.

I am statuesque.

I am caring.

I am a problem solver.

I am an advocate.

I am a game changer.

I am a thought leader.

I am athletic.

I am someone who dances for the sheer joy of it.

I am someone who loves reading.

I am a present and hands on mama.

I am sarcastic as hell.

I am someone who gets things done.

I am a mama……laying down the foundation for my daughter to grow up believing that she is powerful, brave, beautiful, and can do all things.

About Me


Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
