A newsletter that explores the intermingling of parenthood + self-discovery.

Thank You for Sharing is a newsletter written by me, Stephanie Gilman, with candid reflections on identity and motherhood. If you've read my writing before, you probably know what to expect: vulnerable, relatable insights, with a dash of inspiration and a healthy dose of dry humour. The most common comment I receive whenever I write is: “Thank you for sharing.” So here I am, sharing more of my insides. I hope you find some comfort and connection in the words I put out there.

Who is this newsletter for?

This newsletter is for you if:

  • You’re a parent trying to figure out who you are—or really, just a human trying to figure out who you are.

  • You worry about whether you’ve used too many or not enough exclamation marks before sending an email.

  • You spend two hours bookmarking recipes for quick + healthy weeknight dinners, and then order takeout and take a nap.

  • You enjoy relatable content that makes you say, “I feel the exact same way.”

Who am I?

Hi, I'm Steph and I'm a writer living in Toronto, Canada. I live with one handsome husband, two rambunctious boys, and a drawer full of mismatched socks. I've dealt with cancer, anxiety, depression, and, most recently, raising two little kids during a raging pandemic. Sarcasm is my love language. I’m an introvert, a Leo, an INFJ, and an Enneagram 4. My favourite things to talk about are TV, freelance writing, and how exhausted I am. Follow me on Twitter if you’re into that sort of thing.

Why subscribe?

Make life a little less complicated and subscribe so you don't have to worry about missing an update. I’ll do my best to make it worth your while. Also, subscribing strokes my ego, which I very much appreciate.

Sharing is caring

If you know someone who you think might enjoy this newsletter, please share it with them!
