Sisterhood

Sisterhood

Lately, I have been thinking of the sisterhood that comes with breast cancer.  It is one of the positives where there is non-judgmental support and a deep connection with women.  I have met amazing women through my support group and the wonders of social media who I consider my lifelong friends.  The basic reason is these women just get it.  It is as simple as that. One of the many things I love about the women I am meeting is the change we are bringing to the community from our personal experience.  I started Red Fern Lingerie from my personal...

Service

Social media, in particular Facebook, has allowed me to reconnect with my high school friends who I lost touch with. It has been wonderful to see how...

One of my all-time favourite ‘female strong’ song is “I am Woman” by Helen Reddy. This song was released in 1972 and to this very day, I still love it and want to sing it loud and proud….and quite off-key. What I love about this song is that I can feel the strength and power in being a woman. As the song says…. “Oh yes I am wise, but it's wisdom born of pain. Yes, I've paid the price, but look how much I gained. If I have to, I can do anything.” I don’t know if I would consider...

Time

Posted by Tina Doueihi on

This past weekend was a long weekend (thanks Queen Liz) and it was wonderful to have that extra day. Time to relax and just be. This weekend had me thinking about how busy our lives are and how sometimes we forget to step back and smell the roses. The sad things is we are always finding reasons why we don’t have time. Yes, the reasons are valid, yet it is essential for our soul, health and wellbeing to find the time to treat ourselves. Treating oneself is different for everyone. For me it is brunch with my friends, coastal walks,...
