Journaling through grief and loss

Journaling through grief and loss

It's a lengthy post but took me a lot of courage to write. If you are going through grief/loss (it may be things like losing source of income or your pet - any pain is personal to the person), I pray that you know that you are not alone and there is hope ❤️️

{{Women of Mori: Supatriana}} A journey to self-discovery and conscious living cause her to change her career in 40s

{{Women of Mori: Supatriana}} A journey to self-discovery and conscious living cause her to change her career in 40s

My first e-meet with Supatriana, founder of Livconsciously was last year during the pandemic. I remembered that despite being the first time we talked, I could feel the enthusiasm and passion Triana had about social-consciousness, being environmentally friendly, and giving back. After more than 15 years of working in corporate organisations climbing the corporate ladder, Triana discovered her new mantra in life: to take challenges in stride, to consciously think about what she wants, and how conscious decisions can impact the people and communities around her. Triana now runs Livconsciously, featuring not just Mori's social-conscious items, but other products that are fair-trade,...

{{Mori Behind the Scenes}} How Mitzi's mother inspires her to use Mori to empower mother crafters

I've met Mitzi's mommy Aunty Michelle a few times in both the Philippines and Singapore. She never fails to feed me with good food (such warm hospitality!), and she would also bother to stop to ask me how I'm doing. At the centrality of the heart of Mori is mothers, and we've gotten Mitzi and Aunty Michelle to spend some mother-daughter time sharing with each other some questions we have prepared for them! P.S.: You may want to use the same questions as a mini activity with mom figures in your life this Mama's Day too! R: Do you think both...

{{Women of Mori: Hannah & Wendy}} Twin sisters share postpartum and breastfeeding anxiety and how support and self-care are important

No, you're not seeing doubles! As Mother's Day is coming up, we invited twin sisters Hannah and Wendy, fashion bloggers of @neutralsandheels to share about their sisterhood and journeys together as young mamas. Take a guess at who's who? ;) R: Tell us more about both of you! How do people tell you both apart, and are you both truly best friends? :)  Wendy: I think it’s much easier for people to tell us apart now that we’re older! Hannah has more round eyes, I have more almond. Her hair is blonder. I think it’s pretty easy when people get to...
