Stand Together

Stand Together

Like many of those around me, I am in a state of utter shock at the results of the presidential election.

In the wee hours of the morning, as I nursed my sweet four month old daughter, tears streaming down my face and splashing onto her impossibly chubby cheeks, I posted this on facebook: 

Today is a new day. 
I would be lying if I said I wasn't terrified, outraged, and deeply saddened. But I will not dwell in those feelings.

As a privileged, white cisgendered woman, I have the responsibility to stand up for those around me

I will choose love, action and respect. 
I will not be quieted by the oppressive, offensive and dangerous rhetoric touted by the pending administration. 
I will model strong, unwavering and respected female leadership for my staff and my family.

Most importantly: today I will stand tall, brush off my (metaphorical) pantsuit and I will fight.

Join me. We truly are stronger together.

Connect with yourself and your tribe

Connect with yourself and your tribe

I want to say thank you for the outpouring of love and support in response to my recent post on my postpartum experience. I was nervous about sharing, but the numerous messages from people who could relate in one way or another, made me very glad I did.

Mother or not, body image and creating a healthy relationship with food and exercise is something we all, to some degree, work through. You do not have to work through it alone

WITH THE HOLIDAY SEASON NOW IN FULL SWING, WE'LL BE FOCUSING ON THE IMPORTANCE OF CONNECTING: WITH YOUR TRIBE AND EQUALLY IMPORTANT, WITH YOURSELF.
