"the secret to happiness is freedom and the secret to freedom is courage"
"Everyone has a chapter they don't read aloud".
A month ago I experienced a "burnout". I wrote about it on my blog @bottleandheels. Read the story. Link in my bio. Here is an excerpt."The narrative for women is changing but the biology of women is not. To “have it all”, a woman must work just as hard as a male, if not more, to prove that she is worthy and qualified. Then in our “spare time” pop out a few kids with zero pain and zero help (because you chose to have a child, so why the hell should anyone provide you aid). And if that isn’t enough, the cacophony of people’s opinions on years long breastfeeding and better child development co-sleeping leaves one in a self-defeated, wasted mess."

My interview with @northshoretimes. Link in my bio. "Like many expats, Sursok admits to being torn between the opportunities inherent in her LA life and the comfort and familiarity of her Australian connection, particularly when she thinks about her daughter enjoying a similar upbringing to her own. “What I do like about Los Angeles is that no dream is too big,” Sursok says. “You decide one day that you are going to change your life and everyone is there to support you. But the sensibilities of Australia, the way of life, the people and the nature of Sydney as a city, is what I also want for Phoenix.”

#fbf family is everything. What are you doing with your fam bam this weekend?!
"Unhappiness is the fastest pipeline to hate. I always think when people make horrible comments about me it says so much more about the other person than it does about me. Because people who are happy with the way they’re raising kids, don’t talk badly about other people. They might disagree with something and think – that’s for them, that’s not for me, but hey everyone has their own lives. However the people who shame other mothers I feel are often doing it because they feel guilty about their own parenting." Read the rest of my interview on @notsomumsy. Link in the bio.
