Why We Need to Empower Men

We hear it everywhere – women need to know they can do the same things as men. Well I think that notion is quite tired, don’t you? It couldn’t be more apparent that women can do what men do – it even pains me to write that because it’s certainly no revelation.

Instead of this, we should be putting our efforts into empowering men, helping them to do the same things as women. If you know anything about me, you know I’m a feminist (and unless you don’t like humans, you are too!), so this statement of men empowerment may seem strange to you – just hear me out – and please don’t miss the flippant tone.

We don’t give men enough credit

I didn’t really realize this until I was married and it definitely escalated when I had kids, but I came to the realization that we don’t give men enough credit.

This is how I came to that conclusion – my husband does it all.

30 Facts About Me

It’s my 30th birthday, and I wanted to share 30 facts about me, but with a twist. The 30 facts were created by my family and friends, the people who know me best and who have made me the person I am today.

I’m in disbelief that I’ve lived 30 years – not in a bad way, but what the heck have I been doing for 3 decades and how do I still remember childhood events like they were yesterday?! I always had a picture of “grown ups” in my head and never in a million years would have believed this is 30 – I’m not serious, tall, or adult-ish like I imagined. But here we are, this is 30, and I love it. I actually have some exciting changes coming I’ll share soon.

Thank you to you all who shared your facts, stories, and memories with me – this post will be such a treasure for me to reflect on. I thought it would be more of a compilation of ridiculous or embarrassing things about me, but there are some really touching memories and sentiments.

An Open Letter to Bloggers

Dear bloggers,

Take a deep breath. Close your eyes, even. (Seriously try it, it feels nice.)

In.

Out.

In.

Out.

Ahh, I’m feeling better already.

When’s the last time you took a second to literally just close your eyes, breathe, and enjoy a moment of peace and calm?

I’m writing to you to hopefully put some things into perspective in the light of social media algorithm changes, Shadowbanning, and whatever else is happening to bog you down.
