MJ Lifestyle // Magazine in the Making

"Who the hell starts a magazine?!" I ask my sister.
Annoyed she responds, "Ugh, a lot of people!!"
After hearing her response Im instantly brought back to every moment where I wanted to give up because something was either too hard or I wasn't good enough. Like a broken record, he would say
"YOU ARE UNLIKE ANYONE ELSE.
YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO
AND YOU ARE CAPABLE OF EVERYTHING."
Since I was a young girl these mantras have been present in my mind. However as an adult, the stakes seem so much higher, and self doubt can get the best of me.
As a mother with two little ones starting off school and team sports and learning about the world, I've become familiar with my childhood once again. It somehow becomes so clear how significant being a positive voice in your child's mind is.
Every time I doubted myself, whether is be on the soccer field or a school presentation or boys teasing me, I always had my dad on the sidelines cheering me on and my mom there to hold my hand. As a kid you are so consumed with yourself and the things happening around you, you dont understand the sacrifices your parents have made for you and you certainly don't appreciate it until many years later.
As I embark on this new adventure - launching a Womens Cannabis Lifestyle Magazine - Im terrified. But I also know that I am capable and I am unique and I can do anything I put my mind to. And if this little awkward girl with NO rhythm can make the cheer-leading squad then this strong educated woman sure as hell can create a magazine!
We've got our hearts pounding with our newest passion project, MJ Lifestyle Magazine, created by determined women who believe in elevating the feminine voice in Cannabis and Culture. Follow along in the journey with me, Ill be sharing our steps along the way and would love to have you along for the ride!
