During my morning coffee break I usually browse Twitter to see what's going on in the world around me and what people have to say. This morning I stumbled on Jaime Primak Sullivan's Cawfeetawk video series that she has teamed up with Keurig to do and it moved me enough to make a blog post about it.
First of all, let me say that I was a huge fan of her show Jersey Belle. Her and her friends are real and from all walks of life and they just seem like good friends who will always be there for each other no matter what. Girls that I definitely could see myself being friends with. Good girls are so hard to find these days and this is where the Cawfeetawk series comes in.
We live in a world where woman are so quick to put each other down and judge other women, whether it be for looks, size, race, style, etc. It's really disheartening to see so much women hate going on in the world. If you browse Twitter or Instagram for just 5 minutes you can see all the hate and it just makes me upset that people think it is ok to do this. As a mother of a 2 year old daughter and it makes me sad that she is going to grow up in a world that is like this and I’m sure it is only going to get worse unless something is done to stop the hate.
Women need to learn to support and encourage each other, not rip each other to shreds. This is one reason why I love the Cawfeetawk series that Jaime is doing. Her videos are all about supporting each other as women, people, and as humans. She talks about dealing with things going on in real life like infertility, anxiety, hate, stress, loss, love, joy and just plain good girlfriend talk. Every topic she covers make you sit back and think about your own life and find ways to tweak your own life to not allow others to steal your moment or life.
One piece of advice I love from her is “Don’t let others steal your joy. Share your joy with them, extend your joy and happiness.”
If you change just one person’s perspective, maybe the world can change slowly and it won’t be so filled with hate for our children and grandchildren.
I highly recommend checking out her video series. It's so inspirational and real, she is just what the world needs!
