Forgive me Netflix, for I have sinned. #StreamTeam @Netflix_Ca
29 May 2016
It has been 30 days since I last watched you.
Life has been so busy lately. This past month, I had my team fly in for training, I finished designing my Rachel and Lauren’s school yearbook (which I do alone as a volunteer project), the girls graded for their yellow belt in Taekwondo…
and we were all able to go camping for both the Victoria Day and Memorial Day long weekends. It was such a busy month!
It was so busy, that we haven’t watched much television this month. For Netflix, it was not at all… and oh do I miss it! We just got back from a hot weekend in the US, camping for the Memorial Day long weekend. The first thing I did after unpacking was hop into bed and flipped on Netflix. Rachel and I decided on Glee.
Rachel is 11, and noticing changes in her body. She is almost as tall as Wendy, and does not have the typical “skinny” body that most girls in her grade do. She is also starting to notice boys.
Luckily, the episode of Glee we watched was all about body image.
(Ep. S1E16: Home) “After Sue demands that Mercedes lose weight, Quinn steps in to change her mindset and together they set the stage for beauty at William McKinley High, teaching the importance of empowerment and inclusion.”
It was a very thought provoking episode. Rachel looked at me and asked if I ever had issues at school or at work with my weight. “Of course” I answered, “but it did’t stop me from doing what was best for me and my family”.
I pushed on, worked harder than those around me, and got ahead on my own merits. I never put anyone else down to get ahead. That is how I want my kids to be in life.
