I am a 40 year old new Mom with numerous passions as well as demons.  I recently 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, for life is too short.  I also intend to instill into her tolerance for others and to be non-judgemental.  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 will be writing 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.  Please join me on my journey of self discovery and diving into unknown waters.

As I mentioned, I have many passions!  I plan on writing about arts and crafts and holiday decorating – particularly Halloween!  Other interests that I may 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 may also write about random things; I want this page to remain positive and uplifting.  Feel free to share my blog 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 resources and more information as time permits.  Thank you for checking out my blog!  Also, at the bottom of my page you can find links to follow me on social media.
