I need to write like some people need smoothies or yoga or coffee in the morning. Writing is my way of processing my emotions and making sense of all the crazy in Life and thus, this blog was born. I’m Kelsey. I’m 32, married and we have a three-year-old daughter. We’ve struggled to birth a second child. We have three angel babies. This blog shows the struggles, pain and hardships we’ve faced in our fertility journey. Since starting this blog, I’ve had an enormous amount of feedback and responses from women all over Canada so our niche is to help women with their pregnancy and fertility struggles. We just want someone who gets it, and believe me, I get it.
I have anxiety and depression, both of which I keep in check with good nutrition, exercise, personal development books/podcasts and a deep spiritual faith in The Universe. What We Don’t Do reflects all of these aspects plus these two ugly friends I keep with me like fingernails and loose change. I offer the tips and tools that work for me to hopefully help you too. I also like to share recipes, books and other interesting tidbits I think will help or interest others.
I had a wild teenage/young adult ride and occasionally I will share stories that will motivate you and inspire you to be your best self. If I can rise from the ashes, so can anyone.
As parents, we are constantly questioning our abilities and choices. I use this blog to share what we don’t do, what we won’t do and what we hope to do. There’s no judgment in this space. Parenting is the hardest job in the world and being a mother is my biggest role. I can’t ever deny that so you’ll see a few posts surrounding children and parenting.
This is a blog for women who want to empower themselves and others. We inspire to lift you up, pick you up, make you think and help you be the best version of yourself. The changes required on this planet will be spearheaded by women and we want to honour, love, respect and unite women everywhere.
United we rise,
