perspective.

Perspective. We’re all born into this place, blue in the face and screaming for all the world to hear, protesting from the moment our lungs breathe the air of existence. Thrown into life, to discover your own thoughts, ideas, and interpretations on what its all about. Growing, learning, and piecing it all together, like a child knee-deep in Lego, locking them together one at a time in hopes they will create something magical… One by one, building walls and castles, cars and homes, never really sure of the end result, but they continue to build anyways. Brick by Brick, trudging… Read More »perspective.

a contagion worth spreading: Empathy

Going on eighteen months of this nonsense: Isolation. Restrictions. Uncertainty… We’re all exhausted. Our mental health is suffering. I’m not even sure I see an end in sight anymore–do you? It’s been a struggle. We’ve bee battling our inner demons throughout this pandemic, and it’s really starting to show. Everyday I hear about or witness more and more unspeakable ugliness. People being rude, unreasonable and just generally ruthless in their regard to other people. The world seemingly stuck in a mentality of “every man, woman and child for themselves!” We’re all suffering. Yet, no one seems to care enough to… Read More »a contagion worth spreading: Empathy

SUPERMOM

Life with your littles, they fill your heart with love. Any request, big or small. For them, you do it all. You’re Supermom. You don the crown. Yet at times your world feels upside down. You worry about the dishes, the floors, the chores… Stress over doing more… Should you be trying harder? Being better? Expectations set, but even after they’re met, your quest to exceed them remains. Feelin’ that momma drain. But fret not momma, cast those worries aside, they will not remember the cleanliness in which they reside, or an experience left untouched, forever denied. What will they… Read More »SUPERMOM

COVID DAYS

Covid burnout, it’s real. Surreal… It’s got me reeling… Writhing, despising. …I feel it down to my core. Isolation. Restrictions. Can’t do this, no more! But make the best of it, we’re told. Left sitting at home, grasping tightly at my sanity, I hold. Be strong, be bold. Yet under the pressure I feel the trembling. The ground beneath shaking… Quaking. Like a storm that is building, just waiting… Survive. Hold close the ones you love.  United, we pray to heaven above. Find peace within your every day. An ounce of happiness, make way. For with time, we’ll look back,… Read More »COVID DAYS

“Slept like a baby…”

On behalf of every parent, everywhere, please allow me to say: WORST. EXPRESSION. EVER. … We’ve all said it, sure. But for most, I suspect, it was to illustrate a point of blissful slumber and peaceful innocence, lost somewhere in a world of dreams… But the reality? HAH! Let’s talk: I have a 5 week old. And apparently, we’ve hit the sleeping jackpot! We’re talking won the lottery, found the holy grail, landed on free parking, found the golden ticket and are going to the chocolate factory!!! (Did I just date myself? HAH!)…. Since he was only a couple days… Read More »“Slept like a baby…”

Altered Expectations: Reflections of a birth story

Giving Birth… The ultimate test in going with the flow. Having gone through labour and a vaginal delivery with my first son, it seemed realistic to expect the same thing second time ’round. But no… Expectations were not only altered, they were flipped right upside down!! I was picturing a birth at home surrounded by our personal comforts. Envisioned moving through positions in, on, or around my own bed, music playing and moving to the sounds of my personalized playlist. My husband by my side, offering physical, mental and emotional support (which warrants a pause here to recognize how supportive… Read More »Altered Expectations: Reflections of a birth story

2020. a lesson of perspective.

2020. Yup… It was a year in which no one could have predicted. It was an unexpected seagull crap on the head kinda year; Like looking both ways before crossing the street, and then getting hit by an airplane. New words became common place at an astonishing rate: “Covid,” “Social-Distancing,” “Lockdown,” “Personal Bubble,” “Quarantine,” “PPE/Masks,” “Covidiot,” “Unemployment,” and “New Normal…” As per usual for January, many people have been discussing lessons learnt, reflections on the past year and new years resolutions. This year though, there’s a slightly different feel to them. There seems to be more of a focus on… Read More »2020. a lesson of perspective.
