Finding joy in the littlest things throughout your day can make a huge impact on your overall attitude. Jaime Mathews, a journalist, author, and mom of five put together all of her joys into her upcoming book, Sunroofs and Shoeboxes. She explains how the smallest things that we take for granted each day, could be the things that we are grateful for day in and day out.
About the Guest:
Jaime L. Mathews is the author of Sunroofs and Shoeboxes, a collection of the little nuggets of wisdom she has found in the little things of everyday life. Educated as a journalist and a holistic health educator, Jaime has had an eclectic career path that gave her the tool kit to become a mother. The journey of writing Sunroofs and Shoeboxes prepared Jaime for motherhood and helped her find the little nuggets of happiness when she was in the throes of having twin newborns. Jaime, her husband, and their five children live on a farm in California.
Following the crumbs in the chaos is a full time job. As a busy mom of three, a wife to a traveling hubby, and keeping it weird in Austin, Texas, it’s safe to say that my life is never boring. In addition to running my coaching business as C’N’C’s CEO, I’m a certified coach for a premier virtual fitness and nutrition program helping others feel better while sustaining a healthy lifestyle. My mom and dad are thrilled that I’m putting my Exercise Science degree to good use.
Along with my experience training pro athletes, S.W.A.T. members, and a high school football team, I gained 10+ years experience as the Director of Marketing building multiple court reporting companies. Lastly, I am a published writer, Content Coordinator, and Account Executive for a publication by Best Version Media. They even gave me a monthly “How to” column where I teach others how to be more self-sufficient with common household tasks. Every woman should know how their home functions and what to do if something malfunctions, man or no man. With my husband on the road, searching “How To” on the internet has transformed me into a “Mommy MacGyver”. “I don’t know how you have the time.” “You’re like a Supermom!” These are common things that people say, but the truth is that life hasn’t always been easy or pretty. Even with the bumps, I always try to find the humor in everything because laughter is good for the soul and you should never take life too seriously….where’s the fun in that?
