About Me

Hi! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by to visit. Welcome to The Diligent Life, where I share my journey of getting it together, life that is; and learning to make wiser choices.

Yes, seriously, I just said that.  But hold on, let me introduce myself.

My name is Lamonica. I’m a mom, daughter, sister and friend. I work full time in the helping profession and am passionate about improving the lives of others. I’m also passionate about encouraging and motivating others to accomplish their dreams and goals.

I’m a single mom to three beautiful daughters, but I’m not quite the mom I want to be. How so? I’m great when it comes to the fun things. I’m not so great with the other things. Unfortunately, I’m not the mom with a perfectly cleaned and organized home; wonderfully cooked meals, with weekly schedule down to a science.

My girls would tell you it’s quite the opposite! I’m forgetful and a terrible procrastinator, probably because I just can’t seem to get organized – although I always have great intentions. Many days I don’t feel like cooking in the evening because I didn’t plan my meals for the week and have no idea of what to throw together for dinner.  Or there’s an after school event that I completely forgot about and have to hear “I told you about it last week and you said okay”. I hate when I disappoint my girls.

There you have it, that about sums it up. So, why a blog?  I’m determined to get it together, to reach my goals and be the best person possible, a well-balanced woman. Basically, I want to make better choices for myself and family – to be diligent in every aspect of my life.  Blogging is a fun way to hold myself accountable, while also allowing me to build a community of encouragement and motivation for all of us.

As I figure out tools to organize my personal and professional life, I hope to help you do the same. I hope as I learn what works for obtaining physical and financial health, you can learn something as well. We’re going to stop procrastinating,  learn to focus and achieve our goals!

I’m so excited to start this journey with you!!
