I’m Brookelyn Vance

I’m a poet, an outdoor enthusiast, and a bit of an adrenaline junkie. I’m also a single mama to one little and a Bernese Mountain fur baby.

And I want to help you find your happy!

Reclaiming Motivation is...

A community fiercely devoted to inspiring single Mamas to live their best lives.

Be an artist, be an entrepreneur, climb the corporate ladder, whatever makes you happy, healthy, and whole.

This is the community I wish I had when I was navigating the newness of being a single mother.

It is the permission slip I needed when I felt guilty for doing anything for myself.

Hey there, Mama!

Do you ever feel guilty for wanting to do things for yourself for a change? Are you struggling with the idea that you’re supposed to focus all of your time, effort, and energy into being a mom, but you know that you were made for more?

I’ve been there, it sucks, but it doesn’t have to define you. You were made for more.

About Me

I’m a small-town North Carolina writer, educator, and single Mama to an amazing little boy, not to mention my 120 pound Bernese Mountain fur baby

I am also a poet, an outdoor enthusiast, an adrenaline junkie, and a lover of all things travel.

I deeply believe in mental health advocacy. My mission is serving single mothers, helping them navigate this sometimes-lonely path, and embracing their enough-ness.

This happy, healthy, whole, single-Mama is recreating the status of single motherhood.

Come see what awesome resources are waiting for you over on the blog!

Whether you’re looking to get outdoors more, find a better work/life balance, or simply make more meaningful connections with the people in your life, I want to help you do it.

You don’t have to stress yourself out thinking that now that you are a mom, that is all you can be. You can be an amazing mom and an amazing woman all at the same time.
