Be Your Own Super Hero


Woman with suitcase standing on road, ready to begin a new life.

Hey friend! I’m ToughBaby, your Superhero Fairy Godmother. You can call me Tuffy.

I’ve seen you struggling, so I’m glad you found my little corner of the internet.

Sometimes life feels like you’re walking uphill backwards, doesn’t it? Between work, bills, family, home, pets, social and the ever-present emergencies, it can just be too much.

And yet the older we get, the more we realize that we create the quality of that journey. The morning we get today, is the day we created yesterday.

Life can be hard, but so much of that “hard” can be put at our own doorstep.

We choose the quality of our friends. We choose how we let people treat us. We choose the values we live by and how much respect we show our bodies.

We choose our life partners, how we manage our money and how we spend our time.

I’m a grandma now (an amazingly young and vibrant one – ahem!). 🙂 God willing, I have decades to live well and to leave a legacy like the strong women before me.

It’s tempting to take the easy road and just let life happen, then deal with whatever fallout. We can choose to be passive and then complain that life’s not fair.

That’s not enough for me.

I’m going to pack my bag and meet this road head-on, on my terms. And I’d love a travel buddy.
