I've been wanting to do a "Mermaid Monday" blog series for awhile. The idea behind it is steeped in my years as a primary teacher and thinking in terms of themes. I know mermaids aren't real, neither are unicorns or the pot of gold at the bottom of the rainbow but.... we still need a bit of fantasy and inspiration in our lives.
“We are ALL Mermaid Queens. Step up to your crown. Walk a path so Earth-positive that you feel confident owning your queen-ness.”
— KATE NELSON
My first mermaid is The Plastic Free Mermaid. What I admire about Kate Nelson is her integrity and strength. I know her from following her on social media and she is willing to tell us the "inconvenient truth". Her posts on plastic shopping bags and disposable diapers told the entire story of what happens to these products once we toss them in our trash bin. I personally admire her straight forward, no nonsense, no BS take on environmental issues and especially the problems with plastic. I struggle with this, I find it hard at times to speak my truth and when I do I find it even harder to be strong when criticized or even questioned. That's one of the reason I admire this bada** mermaid.
You can find out a lot more about Kate by visiting her website I Quit Plastics. Her blogs cover a wide variety of topics including the problems with plastic, DIY body care recipes, vegan recipes. Plus she also does Mermaid Retreats and provides coaching to individuals and businesses.
