I want to be that mother who can stand up and say I am a strong confident mother and I know what is best for my children. We breastfeed and co sleep, We listen, We include, We eat chocolate and snot smoothies, we trampoline and grow frogs, we sling, we carry and we try and understand and work with our children without resorting to punishments, threats or coercion.

Positive Filter Day

We all medicate our crap in different ways. Be that with, among other things, drugs (prescribed and recreational), yoga, sour dough starter, meditation, diet, work, kombucha, exercise, thrill seeking activities,  food, meat, no meat, beans, sex, that stringy stuff on vinegar (the mother load), singing, dancing, laughing. Screaming. Silent screaming on the inside, alcohol. 

Some ways are more effective than others but we are all dealing with our baggage. Some handle it better than others, doesn't mean to say there is any less shit. Some are hardly ever out of the craziness, some just experience it every so often. 

Very few are totally almost sorted. 

No filter for a day. Is that something that could become a thing? #Positivefilterday.  Last time there was a national no day, it eventually became a complete ban in public places #smokefreeinsides. Perhaps it will become the norm to have no filter either. To be honest without fear of consequences. To have a true and honest heart. To have no agenda. To have no resentments. To speak without fear of loneliness but to be left alone if need it. 

Everyone say how they really feel without intentional harm.  Emotions aren't ignored or left to implode in a pool of resentment, hurt and pain. 

Once a year, everyone has to respond with a real answer. Be a real person. Show compassion. Understanding. Kindness. Patience.

Those that know how, can show those that don't. 

Someone show me. Sometimes it feels like I'm doing it all alone over here. 

I know you are all out there though.
