    Day 13 of Dressember! It was a long day but a sweet one! I got to volunteer with friends from church at an elementary school down town where Salvation Army hosted a family fun night with games and gifts! Ended the evening with the chick-fila cow who was wearing a sign dress. 🤪

    Youth Insearch helped me get my life back on track when it had fallen completely off the rails. Before I started my Youth Insearch journey, I had no self-esteem, trust, or confidence, and as a result of this I started to isolate myself from everyone around me. My school grades and friendships started to falter and fail, and my health started to deteriorate as I was using negative coping mechanisms. Immediately onwards from my first weekend workshop with Youth Insearch, changes started happening in my life. I was given the tools I needed to pull my life back together; I found new coping mechanisms, I had an improved self-esteem, I learnt to trust again, and I was significantly more confident in myself and my activities. I ended up Duxing year 11, and finishing year 12 with the marks to get into a Bachelor of Biomedical Science at university, through which I am in the top 15% of my cohort. Externally to academics, I have also been to Cambodia on a cultural relief volunteer program, I have sailed on-board the Young Endeavour, and I was nominated for and completed the Rotary Youth Leadership Award program. Additionally, I am volunteering for a youth action group through Melbourne City Mission, and I have completed my leadership training with Youth Insearch. Youth Insearch has helped me grow and develop positively into the person I am today.

    LIVING IN A DIVERSE WORLD: GOING BEYOND TOLERANCE & SEEKING UNDERSTANDING

    The U.S. has long been considered “the melting pot” where diverse cultures come together and absorb the best of all worlds. However, that pot seems to be boiling, both here at home and globally. What does living in a diverse culture mean and how does that impact the developing sense of self for today’s struggling teens? How can we help teens to embrace both their unique sense of selves and those of others? How can we create a community that feels safe and understanding? This presentation explores these questions and more, offering tools to help support a teen’s individual growth.

    Sometimes words float around in my (Tasha’s) mind. It’s always best to stop and write them down. This morning was one such time. We have been thinking a lot about love this week. I realized I am living the sort of love I always dreamed of. I am utterly grateful for this journey with Jonathan. ⁣

    “I want love like mine⁣
    I want love like ours⁣
    We are the love I dreamed of⁣
    You are my dreams come true⁣

    Little girls and fairytales⁣
    Prince and steed alike⁣
    Glitter gowns⁣
    And white top hats⁣
    Having nothing on the love that’s mine⁣

    A girl in a garden⁣
    Dirt under nail⁣
    A boy in a shed⁣
    Pitch in hand⁣
    A glance ⁣
    A giggle⁣
    A gingham twirl ⁣
    A knowing of a future shared⁣

    A sailor off to war⁣
    A lady with kerchief in hand⁣
    Kisses blown⁣
    Kisses caught⁣
    Miles in-between them ⁣
    Passion burning brighter ⁣

    I’ll be mother you’ll be father⁣
    Let’s all play house⁣
    Dollies and toy swords ⁣
    LEGO bricks galore ⁣

    A snore a bore to some⁣
    But I, I sore ⁣
    Heart a flutter⁣
    Anchored a shore ⁣
    I want nothing else ⁣
    I want nothing more⁣
    But our love for evermore” - Tasha Chenard December 13th 2018

    “My beautiful boy is 3 months old next week, I’ve struggled so much with fighting through all the negative thoughts I’ve had and the failures I’ve felt- I have tortured myself completely and really it was not my fault. I had pregnancy induced hypertension from 24 weeks, doctors and midwives appointments 2-3 times a week- what feels like a million trips to the hospital- mostly because of my placenta being anterior high 😐 and unstable blood pressure & protein in urine. Then i was diagnosed with severe preeclampsia at 30 weeks to the point where they thought my 4 days of lost eye sight was going to be long term, I also had hypersensitivity to light and a constant banging headache leaving me feeling very out of it- along with my blood pressure being unmanageable. I was in a stage four hypertensive crisis at 35 weeks- I was induced but ended up having an emergency c section due to both of us deteriorating very fast.They also lost contact with baby- couldn’t find his heartbeat via ctg while I was trying to labour for 6 hours, nearly was a cat 1 as my body was shutting down and spinal wasn’t going in after 5 attempts. baby was born with respiratory distress syndrome, sepsis and unable to maintain his sats. Couldn’t see him for 15 hours and couldn’t hold him for a week. He was 5lbs 9oz and I spent nearly 2 weeks in hospital. I feel that they never listened to me. I also had pgp of which I still suffer from and I had Hyperemesis gravidarum near enough all the way through my pregnancy. First time parents and Struggled to get pregnant in the first place as was told last November me and my partner- together and separately our chances were next to nothing in conceiving due to various different reasons. I feel so lucky to be able to share my story, im a good listener and am always wanting to help others. Sorry for the long post but raising #prematureawareness . You are not alone, it may and does feel like it at times but you will get there. There is peace and brightness where you look for it, no matter your story- there is always hope.”

    So today is my birthday and some of you will know that I've been trying to raise some money for the @movember foundation for it. I know you're thinking why am I doing a #movember post in December and well it's because of the simple fact that men need support all year round and not just in November. Thank you to those who donated and supported. I post this today because instead of getting me something like a drink, feel free to give some support to them instead. I haven't just been growing this thing because I like it 😉 but I intend to keep it going. Sorry I couldn't find a better more flattering picture 😂. #movember #support #beard #men #raisingawareness #mentalhealth
