We’ve been loving this festival in Brisbane for years and now @beerincider is coming to MELBOURNE! As always, they’ve booked a great line-up of bands and we’ll be bringing the beers (and slushies!) Looking forward to two epic weekends back to back.

I am supposed to cover my body from head to toe and not supposed to go somewhere without being accompanied by a male member of my family. There are some areas in the village inundated with men who just love to stare. I have to behave according to the set norms. If I do something against the established norms, then I get beaten. Maybe some women can speak up for themselves and fight for their rights, I can’t. I am not allowed to work and if I break these norms, I would be kicked out of my community.
Feminism and women’s rights exist but they never reach these women. Help us change that.
I'm so alone in physicality...
Y'know, growing up we're surrounded by family, school peers, friends - when we leave school we continue to seek the consistency of the physical company & support for validation & value of our self-worth.
Being without people to surround us may leave us feeling unsupported, unloved & unworthy. We're brought up with this idea of co-dependency & needing others to be fulfilled; to be saved.
Well, for me it felt that way at least. I always sought out people to talk to, to hang out with... Like if I didn't have somebody to rely on or be around, I felt worthless; like I was lacking something as a person. That physical support I sought eventually manifested & I found myself begging for solitude once more because I saw just how taxing & draining it was on my well-being.
& here I am. So alone. I talk to nobody outside of my responsibilities.
I rarely socialise. I don't want to.
I talk to my girlfriend once every two or three weeks & that's it.
& it's funny, because I feel more loved, more valuable, more surrounded & supported than I ever have in my life!!
Because I love myself. I value myself. I rely on myself, without expectations from others or a feeling of need or want. Everything & everyone I need is here with me, right now. Physically no, but emotionally, spiritually, energetically, mentally yes - however you want to look at it - they are all here with me.
I know I can draw on the energy of those I love including my guides & angels for support.
I know I can call a friend if necessary, but there is no feeling of need.
If you struggle with co-dependency like this, know that once you learn to love yourself & appreciate your solitude WITHOUT social media pen pals to soothe your pain, you will experience full bliss & a feeling of mastery & total independence.
Nothing feels so good, than feeling whole by yourself 💘💘
I challenge you to go 3 days without talking to anyone outside of responsibilities (even if you don't think you're co-dependent) & see what comes up.
Good luck ❤
Let's be honest this is hard. I so badly want to be a kick ass lady who runs her own business from home but getting started is hard. These products are so amazing and the company is a blessing but there are a lot of people in the world who don't believe in what O believe in. Between the nay Sayers and the struggle to show people my passion I have been really discouraged in my business. I often come close to meeting my goals bit always seem to fall just short of the line.
As a teacher I tell my kids keep pushing, keep aiming for what you want but it's much harder to apply that to myself. I have a new perspective of what my students feel when they get discouraged. They work so hard to get caught up and then all of a sudden they are behind again.
We all struggle and when I struggle I step away from Instagram and waste more time on tick tock... What do you do when you are struggling?
We are all in this together.
I feel so so honoured to have been a part of this incredible research program over the past few years, among others creatives who I greatly admire.
I'll be heading to the #themakersandshakersconference in Melbourne tomorrow where we will be so lucky to hear from Susan Luckman, who is a Professor of Cultural Studies in the School of Creative Industries at the University of South Australia, and a leading thinker on the handmade economy. Susan will be on a discussion panel telling us about her latest findings from her research 'Crafting Self: Promoting the making self in the creative micro-economy'. There has never been this much in-depth overall analysis of the craft and designer-maker scene in Australia before. What an incredible experience!
We are so excited to be having Adrianne from @ponnopozz in-store on Saturday, March 2nd, creating a painting live!! We will have a coloring activity for kids...and biscotti & bevvies for everyone! Join us and meet the artist:)🎨🍾🍪
