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…

Now that’s Progress!

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to have a guest post up at Katherine Stone’s Postpartum Progress! It’s only the most widely read PPD blog in the universe… My guest post is called From Suicide to Joy: A tale of three mothers and three birthdays.  I am truly grateful to Katherine for sharing my…

Becky’s Rainy Day Letter (Hope in an Envelope 6)

Yay, Becky (@beckykid) is here today with her very own Rainy Day Letter. This letter is so sweet, and full of great suggestions of things you could do next time you are feeling down.  Are you new here? The Hope in an Envelope collection started in this post: The Opportunity in Setbacks and Rainy Days Letters. The idea is to write…

With the Band!

My guest post: Very Good Enough is at Band Back Together today. Wheeee!     Do you know Band Back Together? You really should. It’s the best website ever. A shining example of the healing potential of the internet. Band Back Together is the brainchild of Aunt Becky from Mommy Wants Vodka. It is a group…

Asking for your help

Asking for help is hard. So hard. Because: Admitting that we need help = that we can’t handle something all by ourselves = we are not the uber-capable being that we wish ourselves to be, that we want others to think of us as. Well, it hurts. We want to be good enough to go at…

Hope in a Phone Call

Yay! Robin is here! With her take on the #PPDSpeakEasy. Because she participated in many — she even hosted one! And because September will have triple the hope: I’ll be holding three  (3!) support chats, because it’s my birthday, and I am giving back to all of you. So Robin stopped by and invited her…

Susan’s Rainy Day Letter (Hope in an Envelope 4)

Yay! Susan is here! (I love her twitter name: @learndhappiness) with her very own Rainy Day Letter. What a sweet, wise letter. I particularly care for the list of good moments which can act as evidence and proof that you are undeniably a good mother. Having such a list is really good for those times when the PPDemons…

For the Love of Robin

Do you know Robin? She tweets as @FarewellStrangr You should know Robin. Really. She is the mama behind farewellstranger.com and I am happy to call her a friend, despite the fact tat I never met her in real life. But I will! I will! Robin was mentioned in my posts on this here website at…

A letter from an Imperfect Momma (Hope in an Envelope 3)

Today we are fortunate to have Jessica (@imperfectmomma on Twitter) visiting us with her response to this: The Opportunity in Setbacks and Rainy Days Letters. I adore the spunk in her letter. And the wisdom. If you too are in recovery from PPD, next time you are feeling “totally yourself”, save some for a rainy day: put some of…

Story’s Rainy Day Letter (Hope in an Envelope 2)

Look, Story  (@story3girl on twitter) is visiting today! She sent us her very own Rainy Day Letter in response to this: The Opportunity in Setbacks and Rainy Days Letters. Story’s letter is so short, so sweet, and so wise. I am grateful to be sharing it with you all. If you too are in recovery from PPD, I…
