And writing feels like life. The more I learn about life, the more I realize the most important feeling is the feeling of connection: connection to spirit, connection to humanity, connection to nature, connection to the universe, and connection to God/Source. And putting words on a page helps me feel connected.
I don’t exactly have a full-time job at the moment – I can’t find one. And the cherry of the cake – I don’t need to study. I thought about what I liked, and what I wanted to do with all this free time. I wanted to document and share experiences through my own perspectives. A camera and a pair of shoes – really all I need. And what better time to start on this then now? Life doesn’t wait for anyone.

My top goal for this blog is that it be encouraging to my readers.
Here are some topics I’m interested in right now in this season of life:
- Photography (specifically my personal slow-growing business.🤔)
- Life (this is a lifestyle blog, after all.)
- Personal struggles (there will be stories. And awkward stories.😂)
- Funny & potentially relatable stories (life is the biggest thing we all share around the world.)
featured , Motherhood
I envied moms who could stay at home with their babies. So when the opportunity came for a work at home job for me, I felt that it was an excellent opportunity for me to finally shift from the corporate world and create what I felt was my ideal life. The bonus part was I am still able to contribute to our family financially and don’t give up my career, all while caring for our daughter.
The expectation was high, and I’d picture myself playing with my daughter all the time. Being present to all her milestones. All day every day, I get to be there for nap time, bath time, meal time, and more play time. Home cooked meal. Organized and clean house. I got to sleep extra hours because I don’t have to get up way earlier to commute because of the damn traffic.

After reading Katie’s 25 More Facts About Me post over on Katie’s Sanctuary Blog (one of my favourite blogs by the way) I felt inspired to do a similar post myself because it was something I found really interesting and enjoyable to read. I mean, I’ve always thought of doing a 25 facts about me post but I was never sure whether to or not, but lets face it, we all love to have a little nose into other peoples lives don’t we? And we all love to talk about ourselves… whether we’ll admit to it or not so really, this post is a win/win for everyone involved. I get to embrace my inner narcissist and ramble on about me, and you guys get to have a nosey. Perfect!

When I say I’m healing, I mean
I am UNLEARNING the things I’ve learned from wounded people
I am healing years of limiting beliefs
I am healing anxiety and depression
I am healing negative thought patterns
I am healing my gut and my liver
I am healing my relationship with myself
I am healing past relationship trauma
I am detoxing massive amounts of toxins from my body
I am healing from the 20+years of social programming
I am healing ancestral trauma
I am rewiring and reframing my entire life into how I want it to be, not what anyone else tells me it should be or can be because what I’ve been told is just a reflection of what those people CHOSE to believe, that has nothing to do with me
Once you give yourself permission to let go of what you’ve always thought to be “truth”, you’re then able…

Well, it took me a year to get the balls to finally start writing this…
I always wanted to be a writer, or really just be smart enough to write; however, time flies by when your taking naps, taking care of kids, taking more naps, and occasionally travelling.
The funny thing is, when people see you online, they think of how amazing your life is. What they don’t see is the mental breakdowns, complete confusion, and really every obstacle you had to face in order to get to that “perfect” place in life.
So, this is the intro to my blog… to be honest I’m not sure what I want to talk about on here. Pretty much anything I want and anything that happens in my life, because if you know me, you know my life is a fucking whirlwind of bat-shit crazy.
So welcome to my world and I…

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.
— Oscar Wilde.
Poetry. Fiction. Articles. Journaling. Even a few rantings.
These are all things I have put to paper or typed to my computer screen. Some have been shared, most have not. Writing, though, has always been an important part of my life. It has been my therapy, my memory, and my best form of communication.
Recently, I spent months putting the pages of my diary into the makings of a book. I revealed my darkest moments in hopes of shining a light for others. As therapeutic as it was for me to spill all of my confessions into written words, the idea of potentially helping others with those words was invigorating!
There was so much to say, and some of it simply did not have a place in my book. I still wanted to share it, though. I NEED to share…

You may have already noticed how this blog is changing. While it may have seemed abrupt, it’s actually something I’ve been thinking about for a while. I wasn’t excited to write and now I am. I found what matters to me, not that what I used to write about didn’t matter to me, I’ve just refocused on something else. The break I took and lack of motivation made me realize how important writing about what matters to you is.
