About me

My name is Regina Ontiveroz and to know me is to love me. I love the Lord; I love my friends and family; I love shoes and clothes; and I love to teach, coach, mentor women trying to find their way in this world. We are a sum of our experiences, and since I have had many, I feel it is my planned purpose to share.

I was raised in a small suburb of Dallas, Texas. My childhood was nothing close to normal and more dysfunction than function. I had a beautiful daughter my senior year of high school; I have been married and divorced; and I have a Bachelors and Masters under my belt. Overcoming the trials of poverty, being an adult child of an alcoholic, surviving sexual abuse, teen pregnancy and single motherhood have afforded me wisdom beyond my years.

However, it wasn’t until I was faced with my own mortality did my life really begin to take on meaning. In 2010, I was diagnosed with Lynch syndrome, a genetic mutation inherited from my father that predisposes me to 13 different cancers at ages earlier than the national average. The effect on my family from these genetic cancers has taken the lives of 5, and now there are 6 of us, that we are aware of, living with this mutation. 2 of the 6 have had cancer. To date, I AM CANCER FREE. My father passed from metastatic pancreatic cancer when he was 53. His brother William lived with cancer until his early 50s. My Tia Janie, Uncle Tommy, and Buelita Ontiveroz passed in their 40s.  By my family tree, my clock is nearing the end. As of today, I am 37. I try not to focus on the negative. I feel my best offense is a strong defense. I lean on my faith; I follow a clean diet; I exercise regularly; I eliminate stress; and when my body asks for it, I give it rest. I give my body what it needs, not what it wants.

What I hope to share is insight. Insight into life perspective, managing Adult Attention Deficit Disorder, leading a life of health, and fashionably, frugal, fabulousness.

Don’t waste today worrying about a tomorrow that may never come and live everyday like it’s your last. street shot
