I’m a mother of 2 kids. What a wild ride it is being a parent. My self compassion practice allows me to enjoy the good times and be present in the difficult times.

As I learned the language of self compassion, I shared it with my kids. We hold kindness as our central value.

Self compassion is not weak. There is both a fierce and soft side to this practice. Standing up for yourself is self compassion. Boundaries - telling someone to strew off. All part of fierce self compassion.

Teaching your kids to be fierce in the world. I want my kids to use their voice when something is not fair.

Be fierce out there. Ask for what you need.

My kids are finding their way in the world. I tell them they don’t have to hug if they don’t want to. I support ‘some’ sassy behaviour. Go ahead kids, throw down some boundaries when others are behaving badly.

A moment of pause and reflection today. I wish to listen more to local Snuneymuxw technologies and stories this year. Their is great wisdom in these traditions. I feel honoured to live and play on these lands.

Emails stress me out. I finally took the plunge and implemented the inbox zero strategy. Fabulous! I feel so much better.

Below are the gmail instructions.
I will be doing the same thing to my work email on outlook.

I also removed my pop up notifications for email. It’s distracting and elevates my blood pressure.

Unsubscribe all of your notification emails and sales/promotion. All of those emails just clog the system. Take the time to reduce the clutter in your digital life.

Create a life you love.
