I’ve lived a few lives already, lived in different countries, lived in many cities, worked in many fields. If you know me personally, you know I moved to another country by myself at age 15, then came back to Canada for University, worked hard, played hard & really focused on my career in my 20s, like 80 hour work weeks....guess what? There isn’t much I did in my 20s that are relevant to my current life.
Travel, life, work, education, motherhood changed and shaped me into the current me.
The one thing that has always remained the same, since I was a very young girl, I never felt it was acceptable for me to get/do/receive less because I was a girl/Woman. My hometown was named the most dangerous city in Canada, so I grew up in archaic sexist behaviour. I fought that thinking tooth and nail! I was always outspoken and strong, the one to stand up for people or girls generally. I always felt and feel, I can, and you can, legitimately accomplish anything you want in life.
I’ve always had a goofy fun side, but one thing people always remember or say to me is “you were never one to take any shit”....this remains true My execution of calling out shitty things people do or say or what I will accept has changed somewhat...I’ll totally confront you or expect an answer for mean words, mean behaviour, misogyny, and general bullshit I don’t feel I or anyone should be dealing with...but my quickness to react is slower. With age, experience and maturity I’ve become less reactive, but I can only settle that fire in my belly for so longI’ve never felt that confronting something shitty was fun, I just feel compelled to call it out and not let someone get away with bad behaviour...it’s always with hopes that another woman, girl, mother would not receive that treatment...if I fought the bullshit...maybe less people would have to deal with it♀️ I guess I’m saying, if you see something that isn’t right, isn’t fair, isn’t kind...call that out. Be strong. Our children are watching and I’ve never been interested in allowing ignorance. You shouldn’t either. #speakup #speakout #standup #noregrets #greysanatomy #greysanatomyquotes #strongwomen #strongissexy #strongisthenewskinny
