Follow me to Mama’s Comfort Camp?

Things have been quiet around here. That’s because I’ve been busy with the Mama’s Comfort Camp. Do you know about the Mama’s Comfort Camp? It’s where I share my Self-Kindness work with hundreds of moms from around the world, in a responsive, interactive refueling station you can access from anywhere, anytime, via a private facebook group. Mama’s Comfort…

Comfort in Numbers: 41, 2, 300…

Two years ago today, I started this blog with this post.  Last year, on my 40th birthday, which was also my first “blogaversary”, I posted this: When I was younger, I really wanted people to think I was beautiful, then I wanted them to think of me as smart, then I wanted to be funny,…

Imperfect at BlogHer

I’m on the bus to NYC. I’m going to BlogHer. The mother of all blogging conferences. It’s my first time going to something like this. And I’m nervous. And despite my best efforts, so much of what was supposed to happen before I go, didn’t. I wanted to get a haircut before I go. I…

Pride in the Invisible + Comfort + Sisterhood

My sweet friend Charity (who wrote this guest post here) is hosting a Mother’s Pride Carnival (what an awesome idea!) at her blog Giggles and Grimaces.  Charity rocks, y’all, and you can follow her on twitter at @signingcharity  I am proud of many things but  not always as proud as I should be. And while…

A new look, and a SpeakEasy support chat tonight

Have you noticed the change?  This website used to look like this: The clean and popular WordPress Theme Misty Look served me well, but it’s time for bigger and better  more flexible things. I’m excited about having a column on each side of the post area, and even more excited about the new navigation and…

International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day

Today, November 19, is International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day. I started to write a special post for today, but I just can’t finish it.  As someone who lost her birth mother to postpartum depression driven suicide, and six years ago almost followed the same path, I am giving myself full permission to not finish this…

Sarah’s Rainy Day Letter (Hope in an Envelope 7)

My In-Real-Life friend Sarah is here today. I Love this letter so much, that I put it up on the wall in my office. Sarah is not on twitter, and she doesn’t blog either. But boy, she can write! I hope she will start a blog soon, let’s encourage her in the comments. Are you…

Just.Be.Enough.

Today I am grateful to be guest posting at Just.Be.Enough. Say it: Just. Be. Enough. These words make me breathe easier. Just.Be.Enough. is about feeling taller, more confident, and empowered. Celebrating Me. Celebrating You. It is time to Just.Be.Enough. The brainchild of Elena Sonnino (you may know her as @CiaoMom on Twitter, and if you…

Even More Progress: Strong Start Day

Do you know that more babies are born today, October 5 than any other day of the year? I didn’t know this until Katherine Stone told me. Katherine, the warrior mom behind Postpartum Progress. The blog and the non-profit: Stronger families, one mom at a time. Last week I had the privilege of having my words published…

My comfort zone at 40 and 1 year.

My birth mom never made it to 30. My beloved second mom is in her sixties, and makes it look very good. My over-40 friends make it clear that it’s a really good club to be joining. I am done freaking out about turning 40, and just in time. I’m going to be 40 in 2 hours. As…
