Back to Documenting My Life!

I have been away AND I have been busy. Being a new-ish mom (feels like this lasts forever) and now opening up a store. What a crazy year it has been.

If you were on my newsletter, I sent everyone a very detailed story of what happened and how I got laid off. Now I am more passionate than ever about women’s rights and for us to all be equal.

In Japan a female hardly ever asks for a raise even though they went to a better school or faster/smarter than the guy next to her. Income levels between men and women in Japan are not equal; the average Japanese woman earns 40 percent less than the average man, 

In Japan once you get pregnant the job that you worked so hard at for the past 3-5 years, ‘assumes’ you will quit your job to be a house wife. Women are often found in part time or temporary jobs. … Japan has a strong tradition of women being housewives after marriage.

Being fired in this way for this reason was shocking and heartbreaking, but I see clearer now than ever before.

I am now being “forced” to pursue the very dream that got me fired in the first place. This is all part of the plan. The time is now and this excites and terrifies me at the same time!

I am back and ready to start sharing more of my life and what I learn from it. Would also love to learn from you all as well! I always say this but, every time there is a comment or DM I try to reply to all of you and hopefully we get to connect. We live in an amazing time where we can create friends on the other side of the world via online.

See ya around here again!
