Making mom friends is HARD. Like. Really hard. I called my best friend a few nights ago and cried because the reality of this move has been hitting me. I've been feeling like I'm back in high school again. All those insecurities creeping back in and telling me I'm not good enough. Not cool enough. Too weird. I won't fit in. Women can be downright mean, ya'll.
But then I had the weekend with my family and I realized that yea, I'm not everyones cup of tea. And yes, finding mom friends CAN feel a lot like high school. But. That's ok because I have a family that loves me and two kids who love to hold my hands and think im the coolest ever. A husband who let's me sleep in. And. I live in a really beautiful place with TONS Of women who will like me the way I am. I just have to find them!!
SO. I joined that mom dating app called peanut 😂😂 yesss, mom dating is a real thing and I feel so happy having real conversations with moms who get me and have a spot at their table for me. I actually had a mom date this morning and it was great. So. All of this to say. You are worthy of friendship. There are people out there who want to meet you. Your tribe is waiting for you and dont settle for anything less because your quirks make you YOU.
Happy Sunday, folks. Have a nap for me.

My sunshine 💛 dzień powoli ucieka, słońce już za horyzontem, świat spowity w szarość zmierzchu i chłód nadchodzącej nocy...i my do domu wracające, sukienki w kwiatki i swetry ciepłe...jesień przyszła🍂 dobrej nocy💛
We are - all of us - responsible for our contribution to society. What we put out, creates the environment we live in
Our day to day actions - our behaviour, our words - have an influence on our community
It is behaviour, not labels, that should determine how we are received in the world and what we contribute to our community is governed by the same
It shouldn't matter what your class, level of privilege, ethnicity, gender, sexuality or anything else, is. No variety within these labels, excuses a person from behaving aggressively, unkindly or without respect for others
Shouting over people, cutting in when they're speaking, labelling, generalising, swearing excessively (I'm thinking specifically of all the frighteningly angry activism we see now!), shaming people (no matter what they believe in), manipulating information or spreading angry gossip behind people's backs....no matter your beliefs, is this really what you want our world to be? Is it how YOU want to be seen...is that the type of role model you want for your children? The next generations?
Imagine the world you want to live in. Rather than seeking out all the people to blame for it not already being that way, think about how you can help create that world. Not how others can...how YOU can. That is the work to do. That is where the change can really happen. We learn so very much by example
