Just take a moment and listen
Don’t compare your Day 1 with someone else’s Day 100, Day 300, Day 4572!
Start today, where you are! Start scared. Start slow. Just start - you deserve to. You owe this to yourself.
Quite comparing yourself to that other chick on the internet. To the one that “has her shit together”, because believe me she doesn’t!
Be you. Be fierce. Live up to your endless amounts of potential!
Need a cheerleader along the way? Girl, I got you ❤️
Who we surround ourself with is so important. I’m grateful for all my family, friends and the lovely ladies who have helped over the last year with adjusting my exercise as a new mum 😊☀️
Hema is a former Toronto city councillor candidate, a feminist and the co-founder of Women Win TO.
In 2017 Hema Co-founded Women Win TO; an organization that trains and prepares women, including trans and gender non-conforming individuals, to run winning municipal campaigns. When Hema ran for office, she received feedback on “how to look” and how to physically “fit the role” of a leader. She works hard to make sure that women never hear that they don’t look like power, and she reinforces that power, in fact, looks like them.
In Women Win TO’s Inaugural 2017 class, there were 15 amazing participants, 10 of whom became candidates, including two now-sitting Ontario MPPs. Seven incredible participants are running for city council right now! Together, they have built a community of strong women leaders.
Hema feels fortunate for the people who have empowered and mentored her and says it feels natural to mentor other women and will continue to do so. #thiswomaniknow
A beautiful Mummy blogger I know whom I’ll call G is the object of some other bloggers pretty shitty attention, they’ve got their knicker in a twist and spreading rumours like a bunch of twats!
G’s following grew fast, she creates kick ass, well written content & deserves attention but that doesn’t stop the mouthy fucking Martha’s having a say.
G asked for advice on how to deal with this shit.. I’d tell them all to go & play a game of hide and go fuck yourself then go about my merry day but G isn’t like me, she is such a kind soul and is hurt by this but after having a talk I think G felt much better about the shit flinging.
Throughout my teens & even my 20's my mouth got me in a lot of trouble, my honesty come off as a bit bitchy and a lot cunty. I was constantly reminded that I didn’t need to say everything that popped in my mind and truth is if I had of said everything I probably would of been stabbed as I slept by a number of people.
My late 20’s I started to realise my honesty wasn’t about life, love or relationships or parenting, it wasn’t even honesty it was just fucking mean! I used ‘I’m just brutally honest’ as a cloak for what was really happening, I was acting like these people are and I was being a twat!
If I thought you were prettier than me I wouldn’t compliment you on your beauty because I was a twat.
If you were smarter I would not acknowledge your intelligence because I was a twat
If you achieved something that made me feel inadequate I didn’t congratulate you sincerely because I was a fucking twat!
Now my honesty is being received much better, people actually appreciate it and for one reason only, now it's about love, life, parenting, mental health & suicide awareness & it is told with the sincere intention of helping others not just spiteful words to make myself feel adequate & comes from a positive place
G is going to experience success because she is insanely talented an absolute boss babe who will go far, as far as she allows herself. These people will stay sedentary In their careers until they let go of their inner twat & figure out that if you can’t beat em try joining em. -
And you can NEVER keep a Kick ass woman down!
For 5 years, my boyfriend did everything he could to break me down. For the entire relationship he had other women, abused alcohol, and told lie after lie. For the first 3 years, I thought it was a dream. Finally, after biting the bullet , I spoke with a therapist who allowed me to put things into perspective and see the relationship for what it really was; it was at that moment did I start planning to leave. I finally left after 3 months of therapy. 💜
It has been 2 years now, and I haven't looked back! I hear he has moved on to another beautiful lady, and is portraying the same behaviours. Every time I see the new girlfriend I get the urge to warn her of what's coming next, but the inner me knows that he has convinced her that I was the one with issues, so I leave it alone. If only she knew. So thankful tha#opdomesticviolence #enddomesticviolence #abusesurvivor #abusevictim #physicalabuse #verbalabuse #emotionalabuse #psychologicalabuse #domesticviolenceawarenessmonth

Our smiles last year - so genuine. -
The happiness was pure and palpable. I love that the women who attended last year kept saying ‘I had such a good time, I don’t want to miss this year’s event’. I even heard from someone who did not attend how amazing last year’s event was. -
This year, we are taking it up a notch but we are making sure the women have a lot of fun, network fully and learn something tangible - we are talking about BODY LIBERATION - being and feeling confident in your body regardless of your size, weight or shape. For too long, women have continued to hide themselves or feel less than because of what they did not look like. NOT ANYMORE. -
Date is Oct 27th. Tag a friend who needs to sit with us. This laughter must be spread😀
I've always LOVED just staring at my babies while they feed. Whether or not its breast or bottle, it's my one time I get to sit and stare at that little miracle I've created, and just feel so blessed 💕 Having to return to full time work unexpectedly at 2 and a half weeks old made me have to finish feeding Tiger once he turned one month. I expressed for two weeks at work in the little breaks I had, then nearly got mastitis from not being able to take enough off as my breaks were pretty non existent 😬 I knew I had to stop or I would have ended up in hospital. I miss feeding him. But I also know Tigers getting the best he can from formula. And I'm proud I got to feed him for a month as I know some people dont even get the chance to do that. Breast or bottle, as long as your child is getting well looked after, loved, cared for, kept warm and fed, who gives a shit how that food is coming, as long as it keeps coming, that's all that matters 🙌 #dontjudge #supportwomen #allwomen #breastfed #bottlefed #whogivesashit
