Welcome to The Ugly Duckling Chat, a unique Community Blog here for you to explore. The Ugly Duckling Chat is giving back to the universe by sharing not only a few pages of my life, but stories and tribulations of strong women from our very own community! From Wellness, Motherhood, Fitness to... well, LIFE! Read on, enjoy and even engage! We would love to read each and every one of your beautiful thoughts!
I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world; your personality, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your heart. All of these elements brought me to found The Ugly Duckling Chat.
Why "The Ugly Duckling" Chat? Well, that is where it all started for me. Growing up, always known as the the ugly duckling, facing so many challenges in my life, but somehow blossomed into the the fearless person I am today who's a single mother, a fitness coach, a free spirited woman living her life in positivity and gratitude everyday.
And a reminder to the women out there, we may sometimes feel like ugly ducklings, but there’s always time to blossom into the swan you were meant to be.
So this blog is just my way of giving thanks to my past and making good with not just my future, but aspire to help those around me.
I wish this blog finds you in hopes to inspire, motivate and give encouragement in any areas of your life.
