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…

Yuz takes off the mask

I am beyond thrilled to have my dear friend Yuz here today, all the way from Melbourne Australia. We met online through #ppdchat and fell in love with each other. We have so much in common, PPD and being Jewish are just the tip of the iceberg.  This post is about telling her story on her…

Long Live the Empress: Alexandra of Good Day Regular People

Look darlings, Alexandra is here! I adore her, and her blog Good Day Regular People is one of the most comforting, nourishing, loving places in the whole wide internet. Case and point: on Valentine’s day most of the internet made me want to puke, but her post? Made me do something good that day.  And…

Because of Heidi: Introducing Olaaf, the olfactory elf.

I meant to write about the PPD SpeakEasy support phone chat that is happening on Tuesday which happens to be Valentine’s day, but this came out instead. I’m a bit shy about it, but it really is time I told you about Olaaf. He is an imaginary friend, but he is very real. He goes…

It’s February, Got Self Love? (words of wisdom from Jaya the Trust Coach)

My dear friend Jaya works with people on living life from a loving stance of unwavering trust. I worked with her a couple of years ago and she helped me with my relationship with my husband. What I learned from her helped me fight less: fewer fights with him, and more importantly, fewer fights with myself. Jaya writes…

Thursday, not Tuesday, UnGuilt Trip, Shiva Nata

Haloooo! Greetings from Portland Oregon, where I am currently having the most marvelous time studying playing at Havi’s Playground  (with the Havi of the Fluent Self Wheeee!), in the most nourishing course ever. You may have noticed that I’ve been hiding undercovers lately,  I’ve taken a digital silent retreat, because I’ve been having a hard time…

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…

Special #PPDSpeakEasy comfort camp

WTF world? Why so much pain? Too many people I love, most of them mothers, especially #ppdchat moms, are having a particularly hard time this week. I don’t usually use the F word here, not even as a letter. But something is going on. Is Mercury in retrograde? Are there storms on the sun? This isn’t funny….

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…
