What We Don’t Do

This is a blog for women. It’s raw, vulnerable and real. I struggle with my weight, my self love and a body that betrays me with miscarriages. You’ll cry, laugh and nod your head in agreement because as women and as mothers, we are Sisters in our journeys. The way of the Mother and the Curse of Women unite us in our common struggles. You’ll find a Sister in me as I write what you think and feel too.

Hello Sister,

I’m Kelsey. I’m 32, married to a Canadian Irishman and we have a four-year-old miracle daughter. We struggle to give her a sibling. We have four angel babies.

I share here the struggles, pain and hardships we’ve faced in our fertility journey. Infertility is a beast and recurrent miscarriages its horrific mistress.

I had/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 occasionally focuses on these healing modalities. I offer the tips and tools that work for me and will hopefully help you too.

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 main role in this movie called Life. I can’t ever deny that so you’ll occasionally see a few posts surrounding children and parenting.

As women, we are cursed with giving so much of ourselves and requesting little in return. We love fiercely and are drowning in guilt for seemingly small choices. We seek like-minded women to surround us in our lives, like elephants circling a bereaved elephant and lovingly grazing her with their trunks as signs of solidarity and support. We are searching for our people. Our tribe. Our herd. Let our tribe start here. Together we will stand, unite and RISE up to become the divine goddesses this planet so desperately needs. Let these words begin our transformation.

United we rise,

Kelsey
