Putting Yourself First – Why Focusing on You is so Important this is the theme for this year’s Leading Moms event which is taking place on November 1st. I’ve attended a few of these events as an event ambassador in the past and I’m so excited to be partnering with them again, especially because the theme; Self-care is something I’ve been working toward implementing (and not just giving lip service to) in my own life and I write about it a lot!
On one of my latest Instagram posts, I shared about how I was feeling sick and I had to cancel some plans to take care of me ( which is something I never would have done in the past) and it really resonated for so many-especially moms.

Yesterday I felt like a million bucks at the @varietybc #goldheartgala and today I had to cancel on some plans because I feel like I’m getting sick 😷. In the past, I would have sucked it up because the thought of disappointing someone outweighed taking care of me. I’m a recovering people pleaser! Although I feel bad for having to cancel, I’m also feeling proud of myself for resting instead of pleasing. It’s taken me a long time to get here but I can’t preach self-care to you guys if I’m putting everyone else before myself. I have to show up for me in order to show up for others. And I hope this post reminds you, to choose to show up for YOU, too! 🙏🏻❤️ . #selflove #takecareofyourself #selfcare #healthcomesfirst #realstagram #putyourselffirst #raiseyourvibration #youdoyou #stylingtheinside #healthyisthenewblack #takecareofyou #lightworkers #keepingitreal #showupforyourself
One thing we hear from Moms all the time is that they often come last – after kids, spouses, work, family – it’s hard to find time to take care of yourself. But we also know that when moms focus on self-care everyone wins.-Leading Moms
This year Leading Moms is also shaking things up and hosting its first evening event. Consider it a moms night out, for your heart, mind, and soul. I don’t know about you, but this is the type of moms night out I get super excited about. Goodbye getting drunk at the bar and hello inspiration for the mind, body, and soul!
“Leading Moms is a unique Vancouver event aimed at bringing Vancouver Moms together in a celebration of motherhood.
Leading Moms acknowledges the burden that comes with motherhood and offers in exchange a evening that isn’t about paying lip service. As successful and accomplished as the speakers on stage are we know that everyone in the audience is also a Leading Mom. And at the end of the day, we want every single attendee to feel that way too.”
The evening will focus on topics like:
- The Truth About Gender Equity in Healthcare
- Better Sex Through Mindfulness
- How to Make Your Personal Goals a Priority
- Lessening your Mental Load
- And more….
Leading Moms is a place where stories are told, experiences are shared and inspiration is felt by everyone in the room.
