Meet Our "IT" Women of 2021! Featuring: Jade Brittany
Say hello to Jade Brittany!
Jade is a full time mom who loves to share the mess, the chaos, and everything else that motherhood has to offer in order to connect with other moms experiencing similar things. She hopes to help them realize that they are not alone.
Based in Langley B.C., Jade is a mother to four children and two puppies. She is also a part time blogger. She is continually inspired by her daughter, London, who has passed away, and the graceful strength she showed in her life.
“The hardships she had to face in her short life, she conquered it all with a massive smile on her face. She was beautiful, tiny, mighty, and incredibly strong.” -- Jade Brittany
Jade acknowledges that child loss can be one of the hardest things a parent can go through, and it is often isolating. Since London passed, Jade tries to honor the grieving process publicly, so that other mothers in similar situations may know that there is someone out there who understands.
Jade works to change the narrative around grief and child loss by being completely authentic on her platform. If you follow her instagram @Jadebrittanyblog, this might be one of the first things you notice. This vulnerability comes naturally to Jade.
“I find it too exhausting to put on a facade, and pretend that I'm someone that I'm not. I am so tired of the perfection I see online all the time. All it does is make someone else at home feel unworthy.” -- Jade Brittany
Though sharing her story and life can be difficult at times, all the support and feedback that Jade continually receives from the community makes it so worth it. She realizes that every time she is open on her platform, she’s reaching people who need the messages that she’s trying to send.
Jade highly encourages other moms who are working through grief, dealing with challenges, or who are just trying to balance their relationships and mom duties to stop comparing themselves to social media moms because they are not real.
She recognizes the importance of giving yourself grace, because life can be so incredibly difficult.
“In our life we have chapters, we will have good chapters, and bad chapters. Put your spouse and your children first before anything else, and never hesitate to reach out for help.” -- Jade Brittany
Jade has been looking to grow her platform and start a Youtube Channel. However, as the new year approaches, her most important goal is to continue helping others. She may potentially start a foundation in her daughter’s name dedicated to helping families that are local.
Through all the ups and downs that life has to offer, Jade encourages you to never give up!
“Don't ever stop being yourself, nobody is perfect. Beauty comes from within. The struggle is part of the journey, everyone goes through it” -- Jade Brittany
