My name is Heather Ross and this site is about MY journey, and what has worked for me, but I hope you find useful tips, ideas, and inspirations. I am not a certified coach, fitness trainer, or dietician. I am a writer, educator, partner, and mother who is prone to “badassery”, a term author and researcher Brené Brown used in her book Rising Strong.
I know, badassery is a strange term, but I couldn’t come up with another one that captures what I mean. When I see people stand fully in their trust, or when I see someone fall down, get back up, and say, “Damn. That really hurt, but this is important to me and I’m going in again” – my gut reaction is, “What a badass.”
The title of this site, Better Me comes from the name of a very broad, ill-defined project of mine of that same name to be healthier, be a better partner, parent, and person. I’ve since defined what I want in these areas so the name belongs to the site alone.
If you find what you read here to be useful, let me know in the comments and share the site or links to particular items with your friends and strangers alike. If you hate what you find here, take a deep breath, think about why you hate it, and then feel free to leave me a very civil, grammatically correct comment stating your reasons.
Note, while I mention products, authors, etc. on this site, I receive no renumeration from the companies or individuals.
