Do not let longevity be the reason you hold on to someone toxic, and allow them to remain in your life.
What I mean by that is, just because we have known someone our entire lives or someone is our ‘oldest friend’ - yet they treat us poorly or are negative and toxic. We can not let the fact that we have known them for so long be the reason we keep them in our lives when they no longer deserve to be.
I’ve had this conversation a lot lately, and many people have said they feel like they can not cut these people out of their lives because of ‘loyalty’. I absolutely understand being loyal, however be loyal to the people who DESERVE to be in your life. At some point you have to put yourself first , and put your energy into relationships & friendships that serve you, support you, encourage you, and want the best for you. Ultimately curating who gets to be in your life, really comes down to SELF CARE. ❤️🙏 #LifeCoach#SelfCare#Boundaries#SelfDevelopment#GoodVibesOnly#RYUapparel
What Pride means to me ... 🔈🔈🌈🌈
Incredibly honoured to share my story and my thoughts on pride with the amazing team at @mixtoronto!! This is so near and dear to my heart, I couldn’t be any happier with how this video turned out. ❤️🙏 #LifeCoach#inspire#Pride#LiveyourTruth
1) Acceptance of everyone
2) equality for ALL
3) LOVE is LOVE
Masculine & Feminine DO NOT belong to any single gender. ANYONE can identify as masculine or feminine. ❤️❤️🙏🌈
Yes, I identify as a woman, but I feel as though I’m truly a “Hybrid”. Growing up, and even still to this day people always ask me “ why I dress like a boy?” I could never understand why pants and a tee shirt automatically meant to people that I “thought” I was a boy or “wanted” to be a boy. I am so fortunate that my parents allowed me to express myself, and dress however I wanted and be my true self. My parents never made a big deal out of it, and therefore neither did my siblings or neighbours etc - it can be so simple sometimes. LOVE & ACCEPTANCE. Please remember that not everyone has that support, be kind, and let people be who they want to be.
At a school talk this year, a male identifying grade 4 asked me that very question I dread... “ if you’re a girl, how come you dress like a boy?” I froze for 2 seconds which felt like hours. So many thoughts and emotions rushed through me in that moment. I took a deep breath and said “ Well I’m just wearing black pants and a black shirt. Do boys wear black shirts and pants ?” He said yes. “ do girls wear black shirts and pants”? He said yes. “ Then it’s just clothes, and everyone can wear what they feel comfortable in”. A beautiful moment of learning and growth for both of us. ❤️

In the last 6 weeks, I’ve been to 3 funerals, my heart is so heavy. Reaching out could look like a call, or text, or meeting for coffee. Please understand that it may not show up in a way that you’re expecting it . Be there. Be supportive. Listen. ❤️🙏 #Support#WeAllneedSomeone#LifeCoach#Empower#YouareNotAlone
