Yesterday, the amazing @mstinaleesf of @mothercodersorg and I led a lunch time workshop for moms at the VM Ware women in technology conference.
Like everywhere else I go, we unearthed a lot of pain. Moms shared their experiences encountering bias, both subtle and severe, and their hope for a better future for us all.
And I was blown away by the keynote presenter Joy Buolamwini!!! Her work with the algorithmic justice league, uncovering the bias in artificial intelligence, has profound implications for our future.
just a mom with two college degrees that realized a piece of paper and a job title wasn’t for me... at least not in this season. as much as I wanted it to be. i can truly remember how I felt in both of these photos. i can remember feeling accomplished yet unfulfilled. i loved the knowledge, geeked out on the science. but deep down there was something missing. i was qualified. but feeling far from called. i needed to do what set my soul on fire. i needed the option of limitless opportunity. being a full time mom. encouraging to other women. being creative, inspiring and authentic... y’all. it took me over a decade. and I’m finally on to something that is ALL👏🏼OF👏🏼THOSE👏🏼. don’t give up. don’t back down on finding fulfillment. find what fills you up. then find a way to get paid to do it. 🖤

I want more of this. Relaxed time to build towers with my ninja superhero.
Less time in the kitchen and stressing about what to make for dinner.
I think I’ve found the solution—meals that cook in the Instant Pot or oven and a menu and shopping list for the month ready to go.
The One-Pot Monthly Meal Plan goes live tomorrow! Link in my bio for details.
⏰I don’t have time to go to the gym. 💸 I don’t want to pay more money for childcare so I can go to the gym. 🏡 I don’t have the space to exercise. 😴 I’m too tired. 🤑It’s too expensive. 💯 I’ve got hundreds of I don’ts and I can’t, but what about the 1 reason why you should?
I work full time, have a small house, the hubby works nights, I pay a fortune in childcare and have two boys, dogs and a cat.
The #1 reason why I should is ME! I’m no good to anyone if I’m sick, tired or unhealthy. I take 30mins out for me while I’m at home. Kids are taken care of and it doesn’t cost me extra to have someone watch them!

This company has changed my life in so many more ways than I would've imagined. I never thought I would care about the quality of water I drink or if my food was organic or not; I never thought I could live without Bath and Body Works products or Yankee candles; I never thought I would brew my own kombucha or cloth diaper my babies; I never thought I'd be the person who reads every label before I purchase something; I never would have considered myself a business woman, an entrepreneur, or a working at home mom. But I am. I am so grateful for the women who have empowered me to educate myself, to find better for my family, and to work hard at growing myself and a business. My every day life is influence by Young Living, and I truly love their products (not just because I sell them😏). Let me help you learn more about who you can become, a healthier, happier version of yourself. ❤️

| BLOG POST | Como utilizar Tailwind para hacer crecer tu blog •
Tailwind es una herramienta fantástica. Aprender a utilizarla en los comienzos de mi blog me trajo muchos beneficios, porque Pinterest lleva a mi blog el 90% del tráfico que tiene. •
Si. Yo apenas estoy comenzando a desarrollar esta cuenta de IG pero mi cuenta de Pinterest la estoy manejando desde hace 1 año y cuando comencé a utilizar @tailwindapp , crecí mucho más. •
Te da la ventaja de probarla gratis con los primeros 100 pines, cosa que te “obliga” a seguir utilizándola luego de ver todos los beneficios. •
Que en resumen te puedo decir que lo más importante es el ⚠️ TIEMPO ⚠️ El tiempo que inviertes en programarla, el tiempo que te ahorra en publicar tus pines, tiempo que puedes probar estrategias para hacer crecer tu blog, etc... •
Y por eso te invito a que la pruebes si todavía no lo has hecho. Puedes programar en 1 hora todo el contenido de tu cuenta de Pinterest de 1 mes. Una muy buena ayuda, no te parece? •
Dime algo, tú ya lo utilizas? Que te parece? Te leo 👇

What do you keep wishing was part of your reality, but repeatedly (without barely thinking about it) let it fall back on your list of priorities??
Lose 🏃♀️weight? Study ✏️ harder? Read 📚for fun? Put down 📱technology? Eat food 🥑that fuels your body? Start a morning ⏰ routine? Stop procrastinating?
What are we waiting for??? Our primal brains are so good at making decisions for us, whatever is instant gratification will always win... UNLESS WE INTENTIONALLY decide to make changes. You have to plan for what you want, not just wish it into existence! Hope is not a strategy (cred: @msrachelhollis)
What is so important that we have to wait to start this, or stop doing that, until tomorrow?? If you start today, right now, where would you be a month from now?? Or a year?!!! ✨
Instead of letting yourself reflex to making excuses, tell yourself ‘WHY NOT TODAY?’💕

OMG this quote from Slay Like A Mother by Katherine Wintsch spoke to my soul. I have been enjoying curling up with this book and allowing it to motivate and validate my feelings as an exhausted, plate-too-full, working mom.
Motherhood is HARD. It's overwhelming. Working full-time is hard. Doing both and trying to do both perfectly, is exhausting. There is SO much mental load.
That's why Mamas you should grab this book at your local Walmart and get your mom-fidence back!

You can see some of my favorite pages so far in my "books" stories highlight!
This!!! The ongoing struggle of parents and prospective parents! How will I do it all and do it well?
Well I don’t have an answer for you. I do know that things will just work out and we have had to compromise on stuff not always being perfect or as planned. Regardless, you are doing a great job! #workingmoms .

Would like to introduce you to my daughter, Issy. Over the last 10 years we have worked together in willow on and off as she made her way through further education. Recently we have found ourselves working together more and more so much so we have decided to join forces and create Willow With Roots. @willow_with_roots. A mother daughter partnership combining traditional basket making with unique and innovative design. Take a look at our new website www.willowwithroots.co.uk. Such exciting times for a proud mum. #proudmum#motherdaughter#familybusiness#familypartnership#joiningforces#workingmoms
