Speak Up – No Mas, Change the World one Voice at a Time

What subject matter are you passionate about? Is there something that happens in this world that you just feel like being the voice of reason for? Do you believe in the Freedom of Speech and utilize it to try to spread awareness about a topic you believe in? That is what this No Mas campaign is all about,

No mas oppression! No mas censorship! No mas silence! Change can start with two simple words…”No mas!” What do you say, “No Mas” to?  Create your own personalized No Mas badge and share it with your community.

Note: Not all badges need to be serious! Have fun with them and encourage your community to do the same. (Ex: “No Mas Meanies,” “No Mas Crying Babies,” “No Mas Burnt Toast,” etc.)

Meanies are something I can say No Mas to, having three school aged children it is often that I hear this story of a kid calling my kid slow, even crippled to the other, and then there are times where kids are just meanies as in they tell my son he is not allowed to play with certain groups of people. Thankfully my kids are pretty strong, independent little people because otherwise they would not know how to properly ignore or handle these meanies. With that being said I certainly think that saying No Mas to meanies is my passionate topic I want to reach out and support the battle against!

You Can’t Please Them All

I am a very sensitive person, well I used to be really bad! I would cry if one person, just one person tried to debate with me. My stomach would get all in knots, my face would turn bright red and tears would instantly fall from my face. It was as if I had no control what so ever!

When I first started blogging I wasn’t quite sure what direction I wanted to go in, I knew that writing was a way for me to get things out of my mind and on to paper so that I can move forward in a positive way. I also knew that writing was a way for me to share who I am with everyone and possibly find others who are similar. After all I live in the same small town I grew up in and it’s hard to meet new people.

When I first started blogging I was all paranoid about whether I would get any comments, if someone would even subscribe to my ramblings and if my site would actually do anything. I don’t mean do anything in terms of money because I didn’t start a blog to make a revenue, I started it as an outlet and eventually my blog grew as my voice and confidence grew!
