Welcome to Be What You Manifest!
I have been slowly building this passion project of mine since July 2018. As I have gradually found the courage to write about what matters to me, I have been learning how to lean into my curiosity more as I believe it is in our own curiosity where we learn what it is we are meant to be doing. I used to constantly sit and wonder: What is my purpose? What am I supposed to be doing? What do I want to be when I grow up? The thing I have learned is this: to quote Oprah Winfrey, we already know what it is we are meant to be doing, but are we willing to hear the whisper?
That is what this website is all about. Paying attention to that whisper, leaning into that curiosity more, having the belief that you are enough and finding the courage to work towards whatever may be calling at your heart. It is about learning how to embrace your strengths and keep pushing forward regardless of what the critics (both external and internal) might be saying. It's about honouring your own truth.
I don't claim to have all the answers. What I do know for sure is that I love to write and I love to connect and feel connected. I love to be inspired. I hope to inspire. As a mom who knows what it feels like to feel alone or to suffer from anxiety and depression, my goal is to create a community where others can know that they are not alone and that it is still possible to live your best life.
What you will not find here is negativity. This is meant to be a supportive community where we can find inspiration and lift each other up, Lord knows we need more of that in this world. You will also not see comparison posts indicating who is better, for example: stay at home moms or working moms or single moms. You will not see posts about whether breast or bottle is best or any other forced parenting tactics that seem to be so prevalent in media. I am (and have always been) a believer of "to each their own." I know we are all doing the best we can with what we have and have nothing but respect for others even if they might do something differently from me. That is what makes us who we are. We can't all live in the same house.
What I hope to bring you is inspiration to do your best, to keep showing up in whatever it is you do, to show you that anything is possible when we believe in what we desire and continually take steps toward our goals, no matter how small. I hope to show you that you are worth it, that you are loved, and that it is not selfish to take care of yourself and/or follow your dreams.
If you like what you see or want to let me know what you would like to see, feel free to send me an email through my contact page. You can also connect through my private Facebook group: Manifest Warriors, which I created for all types of women with different backgrounds and ideas to celebrate each other and is accessible through the clickable link on my home page. I also love supporting businesses/organizations that, like me, are determined to spread some good in the world, so if you know of a group you would like me to showcase, I would love to hear from you!
Let's be what we manifest!
Much love and respect,
