It’s been almost 10 years since I was cyber bullied. Some days it honestly feels like it was just yesterday. The gut wrenching feeling of how it made me feel comes back immediately whenever I think about it, so I try to block it out every single time it pops back into my head.
I’ve always prided myself as a confident person, but even with my confidence it brought me to an ultimate low.
What I continue to focus on and remember is how much my family and friends were there for me in that time. They told me that anyone that knew me who would read it would know that it’s not true and that that was what mattered most. These words of encouragement, and many more, brought me through that time.
I know that I am not alone, and that many of us have also had similar experiences. Making it that much more important to talk about. Between each other, and between our children. I want to always encourage my children to share kindness, speak words of love and to always be there for one another.
Today the kids and I were a part of WE day, thanks to @telus and all of their support. I am standing with them to share the #EndBullying messaging and stand up to help keep digital spaces safe for everyone. The power of technology is huge, let’s rise together and use it for good.

HAPPIEST OF ALL HAPPY BIRTHDAYS TO MY BABY BOY 😭💗💗💗💗 Greysen, I’ll never be able to explain the impact you’ve had on my life. Your father and I have gone through so much and learned so many lessons. We’ve faced so many challenges in our lives but you are by far the largest and most rewarding. You’ve taught me patience and what it means to make Sacrifices every single day for the better of my kids.
I’ve known since I was a wee 16 year old girl that all I wanted from life was to be a mom. Being your mom is even better than I could have ever imagined. YOU are even better than I could have ever imagined. I feel truly blessed to be your mother.
You may keep me awake all night and stressed out all day but your sweet little smile and voice is worth every minute!
Happy 1st birthday baby, I can’t even believe I’m saying that already!! -
Greysen is 25 lbs, 30inches
Sippy cups and straws only!
The happiest, silliest, craziest baby everrrr
I love you so much Greysen James. 💙

Some days, you have to work later than usual, so you pick up your still sleepy kid from daycare and let her finish her nap on you while you finish your work. .
Mom life ❤️
It’s not always fun, and it’s hardly ever perfect, but it’s so so worth it all. .

This week has challenged me to get outside my comfort zone in a lot of ways-
❗️ being more visible on social media
❗️ owning my authority on stress relief
❗️ pushing thru my own limiting beliefs
❗️ showing up consistently + authentically
I’m uncomfortable in the best of ways, because it brings me so much 𝘫𝘰𝘺 and 𝘧𝘶𝘭𝘧𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵 to help mamas 🅡🅔🅛🅐🅧.
Day 2 of the #5daystresssolution is about identifying + eliminating external sources of stress.
One of mine for a long time has been caring too damn much about other people’s thoughts of me. No more.
I’m outing my shadow right here, right now. I’m saying no to allowing Joe Rando’s words stress me out.
What are you saying no to? Tell me in the comments ↓

Checking her cute hair STYLE (swipe 👉) in the mirror turned into goofy faces & reminds me how much I want to teach her to look at herself with LOVE + APPRECIATION for who she is!
I picked myself apart for too many years & finally saying STOP changed my life. Being healthy isn't a certain size, it's about being confident in who we were created to be. To celebrate our uniqueness & talents no matter what others say. ❤️ Self-love + how we speak to ourselves matters!
She totally snuck Halloween candy & has ALL the SASS (karma baby) 😁 But Daddy finished the shower door & we're SO EXCITED!! (check my stories) 😍
