Filling Your Cup

So I recently had a little health scare that meant I had to STOP drinking coffee. For several days. Recommended: Permanently.

Obviously, by the name of my website, coffee is kind of a THING for me. It was not pleasant. Coffee is one of those “ME” things. It’s my jam, if you will.

For a few days, it was physically painful to eliminate coffee from my body. But for better health, it was needed. I ended up drinking more water instead.

This blog is about seeking a life that leads to a BETTER ME.

Whatever role you play – whether it includes “MOMMY” or not, better health – be it Physical, Mental, Emotional, Relational, Spiritual, or Intellectual – I hope to focus on better ways to fill your cup. It’s a journey I’m on myself, and while I am learning, I want to share tips, research topics and ask questions in the pursuit of better health in my life. I am NOT perfect, wouldn’t even call myself an expert.

In fact, just to be clear – I struggle daily with ADD, Anxiety, Depression. My family experience includes Autism and Hirschprung’s disease. I haven’t taken good care of myself for many years because I have needed to care for my family.

But I have to learn how to take care of myself to be BETTER at taking care of my family, and teaching them to help themselves. That’s another area I am learning to navigate.

Eventually, I did go back to drinking coffee. But I am only drinking 1 cup per day, if that, rather than the 2-3 cups daily that I was drinking before. I am not seeking perfection, just improvement.

If you want to follow my journey, or walk alongside each other, I’d like to invite you to stay. While we can’t sit across a table face to face, chatting and drinking coffee, I’d love to hear from you. Hear about your journey. Share in each other’s life lessons.

Are you in?


  1. You are such an inspiration, Debbie. I’m so proud of you for doing this. There are many of us moms who neglect our own self-care while raising our families. I’d love to be a part of this journey with you. I’m often reminded of the importance to “put the mask” on ourself before our children. It’s easier said than done. Sending you lots of love, hugs and encouragement! 💗

    1. Tina, thank you so much! I am thankful that we have been brought together. You are so positive and uplifting and I have appreciated every interaction with you. Hoping to meet you face to face someday!!!
