Raising Little Leaders

MOM LIFESTYLE
3

I have been having a hard time putting this post together, I am not sure why — maybe it’s insecurities or maybe it is the lack of feeling that I have the right words to say. Throughout the day I have read a lot of quotes and encouragement from women encouraging other women through social media and love seeing the positive impact from it, this has lead to me to reflect on motherhood, especially on my role as a mother to a daughter.

Reflecting back on the woman before us, the leaders and the rule breakers, I am also looking at my daughter and how I can raise her to be strong, confident and driven by her own passions today. There are days where I wonder how one could even start to accomplish this and then days where I am very certain that because of the way that I walk through my life she will learn, obtain and grow even stronger. It is about having confidence in ourselves while raising our littles and being conscious that they very very dearly look up to us for that strength and courage.

Everyday is a new day and everyday I am reminding myself of not only the impact that I am making on those around me (whether it be through social media influence or not), but the impact that I am making within my immediate family. Today as a Woman, a Wife, and as a Mother I am looking my hormonal pregnancy insecurities in the face and reminding myself of all of these things.

A little saying I picked up from the latest issue of @maplemagazinecanada that came in my Maple Box. The whole concept of their magazine and the Maple Box is to create comfort and coziness along with encouraging a healthier well-being for yourself (I like it!). I discovered new-to-me products within their quarterly box (take a look at my IG stories for a closer look inside) and love the attention to detail and quality organic products. #ad #themaplebox #maplemagazine
  • A selfie success I’d say. 🐶
  • When I started working out around the house more Ezra asked me, “Why are you doing those exercises all the time now?” and I responded by saying, “Because I want to be stronger.” That’s what inspired this photo and my “strong” pose.

For the next couple of months, I have partnered with @planetfitnessca and will be sharing more about what I am doing to take care of myself and bring those home workouts to the gym while I check out their Abbotsford location.

P.S. did you know that a PF Black Card membership allows you to bring a friend for a free workout every time you go in?? Comment below if you want to be
my friend and join me! #seriously

  • Don’t be fooled by our matching outfits and their cute faces, the majority of my photos looked like photo two and three.
  • We’ve been under the weather (mainly the kids 🤒 ) for what seems like forrrreverrrr!! We bundled up anyways and took in some of this ❄️ snow and even though it’s cold AF and our 🐕 puppy might be the biggest wimp of all it was definitely worth it.
  • I like pink drinks and I can not lie. ⠀

I also love my SodaStream! I am so excited to share that I'll be creating more deliciousness with @sodastreamcanada this year as they asked me to join their #streamteam for the second year. Last year I learnt so much about how they are changing the world with bubbles, reducing waste and turning so many pop drinkers into sparkling water lovers. Best part is, you use tap water from your home so whenever you want to make bubbly water (as my kids say) it's so easy! #partner⠀
