Fun fact: I suffer from Generalised Anxiety Disorder.
If you’re known me for long enough, you’ve probably seen it manifest in one form or another: my weight, my appearance, my relationships, my grades etc… Coupled with perfectionism and imposter syndrome, anxiety creates a feedback loop from Hell, where nothing is ever “good” enough, irrespective of achievements or effort.
Thankfully, it’s been a long time since I felt that way. Through therapy, medication and a good support network, I’ve learnt how to control my anxiety and have become a stronger person for it! I used to feel ashamed of my mental illness, but now I refuse to let stigma and stereotypes dictate how I feel about myself.
Embroidery is my respite from the chaos of socialising and adult responsibilities. I guess that’s why I created this piece, haha!

Winding down a company after 14 years of operation is never any easy step to take. For Veronica, closing one door opened another. A long time foodie, she found a perfect fit as Burpple's Brand Evangelist. ⠀

IM NOT AN EQUAL
I get a lot of looks when I wear this shirt. Some are like "👏yas!" Others are "ugh😤"looks.
I don't care anymore. I'm actually no longer afraid to wear a shirt that points out a huge problem in our society.
I USED to think that women had equality and equity.
Girl power💕 Girls can do anything boys can do! My dad instilled this in me as a little girl.
It wasn't until about 21 when I entered into corporate America that I started to unveil the layers of unfair practices and sexism.
Then I started seeing it in MY everyday life.
⚡️Like for example, when I go to pump gas.
I go into HIGH ALERT every time.
I immediately think about my outfit.
I look to see if it safe.
Is there anyone suspicious?
Is there anyway someone could assault me?
⚡️Like when I walk ANYWHERE.
⚡️Or when I'm at a bar and a guy thinks he can just touch me. Or grab my friends butt when we walk by. And then he calls ME a bitch when I call him out. And IM the crazy one. 🤦🏻♀️
⚡️Or how I'll still earn only 77 percent of my male counterparts no matter how hard I work or smart I am.
⚡️Or how our Supreme Court Justices is comprised of only TWO women; and it'd be "weird" to us if all 9 were women. But no one is upset that there's 7 dudes on there 🙄
⚡️Or how if someone sexual harasses me at work, I'm probably not going to say anything because REALISTICALLY? No one will believe me, they'll call me sensitive and more bad than good will come from it.
OR...... (INSERT 80 MILLION OTHER THINGS).
It's pretty fucked up but its THESE little things that women have to think about stress about EVERY DAY at various TIMES THROUGHOUT OUT THE DAY
I've learned that in order for things to CHANGE we have to be vocal, vulnerable, empathetic and courageous action seekers.
Our FUTURE depends on empowering these rights for women (and that extends to minorities, marginalized communities, and LGBTQ).
Because when we take care of our society as a WHOLE, we ALL thrive.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀there’s so much negativity. we all need to stay gold, and hold out for a better day. ⠀
I’ve come to an unpopular conclusion. I see a lot of messaging around going green that says ‘you don’t have to change your life to be more sustainable. You won’t even notice the difference. Just buy x and install y and your an eco citizen and the world will be saved HUZZAH 🎉 ’. And I get it. It’s a Trojan horse to get people interested in change. BUT. It’s not true. We do need to change. We need to opt out of the norm. And some of it will be noticeable and take a bit of effort and a bit of getting used to. Because our consumerism and All The Stress and Anxiety and Illness that is synonymous with modern life is the SYMPTOM. We need to get to the cause. As Einstein said “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”. I’ve heard he was a pretty smart chap.
We need to change. We need to slow down and put meaning back in things that are meaningful (as opposed to the status quo that dictates our meaning is derived from our materials). We need to start having conversations, getting involved and reconnect with ourselves and our communities and our environment. We need to rebuild the village.
If this is all sounding very heavy and like something ELSE to add to your to do list then fear not, it’s the exact opposite. This is about taking things OFF your to do list. All this stuff that someone else (their philosophy’s, their ulterior motives, their ideals) put there. This is what I’m focusing my work on for 2019. Who’s with me?! P.s. I realise I sound like a Girl Scout on amphetamines here, but I am all hyped up from watching Michael Moore’s “Where To Invade Next” and seeing all these different models of living that are showing an alternative. It’s given me hope which is pretty surprising for a Moore documentary. I was expecting to slip into a mini depression after watching it. Have you seen it?!
Let the countdown begin! SEVEN 👏🏻DAYS 👏🏻
Feminine Energy! #repost
I love seeing women embracing who they are! 🙌
We couldn’t agree more! 💃⠀
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” - Franz Kafka.💙🦋

Definitely a December to remember/// Jamás me imaginé atreverme a cortarme el pelo chiquitito, jamás! Tenía 4 años diciéndole a mi esposo que quería cortarme el pelo, mínimo una vez por semana, y nada más no me animaba... hasta ayer, jugando, le dije que si encontrábamos el salón abierto, me animaba... y para mi suerte, estaba abierto. Le confié mi cabello a mi esposo dirigiendo al estilista 😱 y al final, ME ENCANTO!! esto me enseña a dejar ir la cosas no tan importantes, “es pelo, crece rápido” (vamos a ver si sí 👀😂) y no sólo esto, he estado teniendo problemas con estar tranquila haciendo lo que puedo y lo que está en mis manos, me estreso mucho y muy rápido por tener el departamento limpio, la ropa limpia, doblada y guardada, la cocina perfectamente recogida, etc. Estoy trabajando en estar un poco más relajada, dejar ir, tratar de organizarme y hacer lo que se pueda... claro, no aprovechándome de eso y de plano no hacer nada pero tampoco estar al borde de volverme loca por no poder rellenar botellas de agua o lavar platos. Alguien más se siente así? 💆🏻♀️ LAS LEO ❤️
