What Flavour LemonAid Will You Make?
LemonAid is a community of women who are no longer prepared to wait for life to hand us lemons. We’re becoming the kind of women who go out, pick our own lemons and squeeze the f*ck out of them to make delicious LemonAid!
About Becky + Lea
Who We Are
We are Lea and Becky, two forty-something friends who, in 2016, came out and began a relationship together, at the grand ‘old’ ages of 39 and 42.
Between us, we have four children (3 girls and a boy) and are in the process of working towards living together as a blended family and getting married in 2020.
Our flavour of LemonAid tastes like a lifestyle of freedom, funded by our own online ventures, creating communities of like-minded folk and, ultimately, being the kind of role models for our children that we want to be.
Who The Community Is For
Want to Make Your Own LemonAid?
We run the LemonAid community to provide a space for women, like you, who…
- Feel like you’ve never truly fitted in (and in some ways you’re a little bit proud of that!).
- Crave more than just superficial chit chat and the usual ‘school gate’ topics of conversation.
- Have hopes and dreams which may have been denied, hidden or mocked until now.
- Want support from people who accept you for who you actually are, not who you (or they) feel you should be.
- Want your whole self to be seen and accepted, even the shadow parts you find most shameful.
- Feel alone, lonely and have no-one who you can really talk to beyond a certain level.
- Are ready to hear other perspectives, points of view and lifestyle choices (and maybe even try them on for size!).
Coming Up In the Community
Events + Challenges
Every month in the LemonAid community, something amazingly awesome happens to us all! Here’s what’s happening and upcoming in the community:
The Me First challenge – join us for this 30-day challenge in the LemonAid community, to spend a month putting yourself first – GUILT-free! – in many different ways.
Now We’re Talking – join us as we practice setting better boundaries, being more direct (and less passive aggressive), saying “No” (without feeling guilty), and the sportscasting technique for helping to reduce friction and conflict with others.
Mind Your Own Business – join us for this 30-day challenge to help you (re)focus on your career path or start/grow your own business, and cultivate a mindset that empowers you to create a working life that works for you.
What LemonAiders Say…
I joined LemonAid while on the cusp of making some important decisions around my life, home and family. That said, I'm still mid-cusp, because it has opened my mind to other possibilities I hadn't previously considered. So there is always more to explore...
Our meetings bring a deeper layer to being a LemonAider: talking (about anything and everything), listening, laughing, occasional eye-wiping, but always safe, supportive and well-led.
It is a pleasure to be part of this community of women: to feel supported, accepted and encouraged through decisions and changes; to feel able to speak openly and honestly without fear of judgement; to be given the opportunity to champion others in their endeavours; to be positively challenged to approach life from a different angle; and to witness the evolution of relationships. Thank you, beautiful LemonAiders 🍋Jo F, UK
Reading your posts makes me feel braver – not about anything in particular but your honesty and way of writing helps me feel more confident that I can muddle through life, motherhood and my relationship too and am not stuffing it all up too badly!
Thank you for sharing You both write beautifully and honestly Keep up the amazing work!Dr. Sue M, UK
I wanted to write to thank you for your blog. I value your beautifully written words, filled with awareness, wit, honesty and intimacy very highly. Your blog is such a gift because it is always there whenever I feel alone in my gay life (I live in middle class rural Leicestershire so this is not difficult!) and I feel a little surge of joy when I see a new one has been published. Your words always bring me to tears of being deeply moved, of recognition, connection, of being known and knowing, of joy and sadness and celebration. Please never stop!Lucy P, UK
