I am a 41 year old Mom of a one year old.  I have numerous passions as well as demons, as is evident in my blog.  At the end of 2016, I left a job/career in which I was horribly miserable to follow my dreams for what I love – art, design, crafts, decorating, photography, education, and fighting for equality for all.  The birth of my daughter gave me the extra incentive I needed to make this transition.  It is very important to me that she grows up knowing that women are strong and can do anything they set their mind to, and that they do not have to stay in a job that makes them miserable – life is too short.  I never fancied myself a writer, so please bear with me.

Part of the purpose behind my WordPress site is to share my experience, strength, and hope, as well as my successes and failures, and some of the things I have been through; I hope I can reach the person out there who needs to hear they are not alone.  Some personal experiences that I write on include alcoholism, sobriety, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, sexual harassment, not ‘fitting in,’ and bullying.  Please note that these are my personal experiences and how I have dealt with each, and I will always write with brutal honesty.  Please join me on my journey of self discovery and diving into unknown waters.

As I mentioned, I have many passions!  I also write about arts and crafts and holiday decorating – particularly Halloween!  Other interests I write or comment on include:  body modification, self-expression, being an ally for the LGBTQ community, defending our planet and the plants and animals living on it, fighting against the assault on education, promoting equality for all, life with a fur-baby, my love for horror movies and gore, music, green living, sustainability, health and fitness, weight loss, mental health awareness, travel, pop culture, the paranormal and supernatural, the unexplained, acceptance of self, and finding inner peace.  I occasionally write about random things; I want this page to remain positive and uplifting.  Feel free to share my blog and social media links with others.  Let’s work together to try to make the world a better place for all.

This is a work in progress; I will continue to add as time permits.  Thank you for checking out my blog!  Also, please follow me on social media @LadyDom13!  You can find the links at the top left side of my home page, or follow the links listed below:

I am also getting started on Etsy – I only have a few items up currently, but I am working hard on adding more daily.  I have found a place to make fine prints of my art and photography, and will be adding those over the course of the next two weeks.  The link to my store is:  https://www.etsy.com/shop/LadyDom13
