Hi there, I’m Carmen! Thank you so much for stopping by. I started Day Moon as a destination for all questions about the journey to living a healthy and positive life. I share all of the things I’ve learned (the hard way) to young women and all people who want to find practical ways to live a fulfilling lifestyle.
I’ve learned personally that making positive changes and overcoming obstacles isn’t easy. It’s actually really hard and takes a lot of effort. After a long time struggling and trying to figure out how I was going to accomplish everything I wanted to, I created Day Moon to document all of my successes (and failures) along the way. I want to provide an easy resource for people who want to take steps in the right direction but might not always know where to start. My goal is simple: to inspire you to keep making strides towards the life you’ve always wanted to live! I’m still learning, we’re all learning and I hope we can all share our experiences and triumphs to help people who are going through the same thing.
I do believe in balance and as much as I encourage planning and goals I also think it’s so important to kick back, relax, and just enjoy the moment. I believe that life should be light hearted and fun! Like I always say: Balance is KEY!
WHY DAY MOON?
I took a look up at the sky towards the end of the day and saw a full harvest moon. I know it’s kinda corny but something about that spoke to me. The moon is a symbol of the night and there it shined in the light. I was really struggling with a hard time in my life when I realized that I could make it out of the darkness into the day.
From there Day Moon emerged and so did my passion for helping people solve the hurdles in growing up. (Growing up happens at all ages!) Adulthood can be overwhelming especially when you feel like you don’t know where to start. I want to help you! I’ve been there and I’m still on my journey to live a life where peace, health, and perseverance are at the center.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME
I’m an old sold, a hopeless romantic who followed my heart to Nashville, TN! I studied Public Relations and Marketing. Most of my experience is in branding and freelancing to help small businesses build their identity. My entire life I’ve always needed a creative outlet. Whether that was painting, playing guitar, writing, or my style. I feel the most like myself when I’m creating something that can make the people around me feel good. This website is an extension of my urge to create and my love for sharing ways to live a healthy and positive life!
