Yes. Most definitely.
Math is not for losers, smoking is not cool, and you have a fantastic body, stop wearing clothes 5 sizes too big.
Sell yourself. No one is going to do it for you.
World peace. However I’ll settle for my kitchen being completed and happy children. I also want to see Europe.
Chips and dip. No? Okay, okay, fine. A sense of humour. That’s spelled in Canadian with the ‘u’ at the end for my American friends. Also, we don’t say aboot. (rolls eyes)
Chips and dip. Really. Also, reading Harry Potter to my children nightly. My oldest is on the fourth book this year and my youngest the first. It’s time spent alone with each of them and that time is sacred.
Waiting so long to let my inner confidence come out. What on earth was I waiting for?
Two lessons really. That being a woman/girl comes at a price. It is your job to be the change. That other people’s feelings matter. Currently working on what you put out there, comes back to you tenfold. It’s a work in progress.
Eek. That’s easy. I wish I had a longer attention span. Squirrel!
My friendships. I have so many wonderful female friends. I consider myself blessed.
Tenacious, outgoing, funny, inquisitive, hot-head, stubborn, loyal, caring, happy, in love.
Candace Derickx is a proud Canuck with a sense of humour. Note the ‘u’ in humour, eh? A wife, mother to two girls, stepmom to a ‘gulp’ University student, and owner of a golden doodle who gets way more attention than the rest of the family. Probably because she doesn’t tell fart jokes, although she can clear a room!
Candace has created her own little happy place on the web Life in Pleasantville and blogs weekly for the Yummy Mummy Club under See Mummy Juggle. You can also find her guest posting, Why NO has to mean NO! on Good Enough Mother.
