Blog I Love: Rosie Molinary.com
Who they are:
Rosie Molinary is a lot of things to a lot of people. She’s my co-creator/facilitator of The Healthy, Happy, Sane Teacher, author of two books – Beautiful You and Hijas Americanas, she’s a body image expert, teacher, board chair of Circle deLuz, adoptive mama and friend. She’s also a prolific writer, fantasy football nut and cardigan collector.
When asked what work she goes, she invites us to take a peek under the hood and a peek inside her classroom.
Why I love Rosie Molinary.com and what I learn from it:
Rosie is a master at self-care. She wasn’t always. When she started out as a teacher in her early twenties, she ended up in the emergency room twice. In a week.
She learned self-care the hard way. And she writes and teaches what she does, so you don’t have to. I love her for that!
All of her self-care posts show how busy people can make their lives better by taking the time to take care of themselves.
She shows you how to say no so you can say yes to the things most important in your life.
How scheduling a break can help you be more productive in the long run.
Her starter steps to self-acceptance is an absolute must read.
Flipping the switch (from self-hate to self-acceptance).
Quieting the anxiety. The name says it all.
Spark Your Systems is a series of posts which for me are completely awe-inspiring. Rosie outlines how she handles various aspects of her life and she makes organization seem completely reasonable and doable. Some of my favorites are: Menu Planning and Planning for What You Need, Want and Have To Do (my want-to-do list somehow always gets lost).
Giving up The Facade – would you go au natural, even for a day? Rosie challenges her students (and the community at large) go forgo make up and hair products for a day and to let the world see the real person. I’m fascinated by this phenomenon because I grew up in an era where make up was optional for a lot of us. Not so much for this next generation. In the past she has shared photos of her scrubbed clean students and they all look beautiful.
