The Alternative to Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is an emotional time of year for many, including myself. Can you imagine what this particular day of the year might feel like for any of the following people around you:

♡ A woman who is having trouble conceiving or is unable to conceive

♡ A Mother who has lost a child to stillbirth, miscarriage, cancer, childhood heart disease, suicide, an accident or in any other tragic circumstances

♡ A single Dad who has lost his wife, partner or the Mother of his child

♡ A single Mum who has lost her own Mum (that would be me!)

I know that there are many more ways in which this ‘day’ can be painful. I know that more people need to stop and think about others.

9 Ways to be More Kind and Less Asshole

my religion is kindness

So last week I was trying to make a right hand turn out of the lane that my office is on, during peak hour, across a really busy Sydney road. It is always the least favourite part of my day, simply because it reminds me of how many assholes are on the loose. On this particular day I was lucky to only encounter two of them, although the volume of assholes does not diminish the impact on my soul. One male and one female took it upon themselves to deliberately place their cars across the little gap that others were leaving for me to make my getaway. I say deliberate because they both looked at me and shook their heads to announce their deliberate asshole-ness.
