Today, I am sharing the words of guest contributor Amy who is exploring her sense of identity as she faces the changes to her body and appearance that comes with ageing.....
"I live in two different worlds: My internal world, where my matriarchs are with me still. My outside world, where people really seem to believe that how we look matters and women looking older is to be avoided if possible."Read More
There are some days when a conversation can be lifesaving. The connections we form with one another as human beings often centre around interactions that leaves us with a warm feeling of being welcomed in.

Today, I am sharing the words of guest contributor Daki who is exploring her sense of identity as a woman of colour by adding her own definition: an 'Interbeing'. This might be a definition that you relate to or something you find challenging. We will be exploring different contributors' approaches to navigating their own understanding of identity with each of these posts.
Each guest piece will be shared with the intention of creating a safe space in which the contributor defines and uses labels that feel right to them. I encourage you to read Daki's story with an open heart and if you have an identity story to share, I would love to give it a home here. Drop me your idea via email@example.com.Read More
