Alumna Spotlight: Local Alumna Pens Book to Help Support Busy and Overwhelmed Moms

HANOVER, Md. — Busy and overwhelmed moms can create focused and productive lives according to Tamara Robinson in her new book Live and Love Out Loud: 7 Tips to Transform Your Life from Busy and Overwhelmed to Focused and Productive.” Robinson says the book is designed to help busy moms rediscover their inner dreams, desires and goals and pursue them without guilt. In the book, she shares her life story and the actions she took to transform her own life, creating a more focused and productive life.

A few years ago, Robinson was a stressed and overwhelmed poet and supportive dance mom on the verge of complete burnout. As a busy single mother, she thought this was normal and something all moms experienced. She soon realized a change needed to take place so she started the process of following a few tips for turning her life around.

“We really need to take time to focus on ourselves because we’re natural nurturers,” Robinson said. “We naturally want to help other people whether it’s our spouse or our children, whether you’re working inside or outside your home, we naturally want to give out to other people. Then what happens is we find ourselves lower and lower on our list of priorities. Sometimes we may not even be on our daily priority list. Eventually, you get to a point where you’re overwhelmed and just completely stressed out. We spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year in this body, so why shouldn’t we put ourselves first?”

Robinson has also authored the book “Poems from God’s Dancer: From Suffering to Victory.” She is a 1996 graduate of Savannah State and was Miss Savannah State College 1995-1996.
