Heatherlee shares stories about motherhood: the good the bad and the messy!

For our daughters and hers.. A time capsule for future female empowerment

Strong women, strong society

I believe that now more than ever women worldwide are standing taller, reaching further and empowering change. The march for women's rights never sleeps. Despite what we feel at this very moment, we should praise every single woman that came before us. Celebrate every win.

It’s never been perfect and it will always be hard. But progress takes many forms, and we should all remember how far we’ve come no matter how much further we have to go.
— #WomensRights
We keep fighting not only for us but especially for those nameless, faceless women who need to feel our strength coming through.
— #HumanRights

Let's be reminded that we have torn down walls, we have raised our voices and we have forced change where there was once heartache.

There are strong women in all corners of the world from all walks of life. Women beating all odds, throughout all of time.

So what's your story?
How have you risen up?

Note from the author: I strive to live in a way that empowers people and creates an open space for love and light. We are content being a little bit different, a little off-beat, and all the way happy :)

Mental and spiritual health is extremely important to me as a mom. I believe in preventative wellness and the healing power of meditation. I believe in informed decision making and listening to your body and heart.

I'm not perfect or certified in anything really. So, thanks for accepting me as I grow and learn and write from my perspective. I hope this blog brings me closer to finding and creating the things moms need. And above all that you're inspired to be yourself.

Now go mom like a boss!
(Whatever that means to you).

With love, Heatherlee
