Welcome to my beautiful chaos of a life! I have finally seen the light at the age of 40, and it was NOT a pretty journey to get here. From an early age, I was shaped by alcoholism, affairs, abuse, pill addiction, mental health issues, rape and peer isolation. I am no where near perfect, but I do finally get it...I think! Be the change that you want to see! Break the cycle that has shaped who you have become. Rise above the demons that tempt us and challenge us daily. There are such healthy and beautiful ways to calm your soul once you learn to do them. I want you to know, that you are not alone in this world! There are so many people like you and I that struggle to become better with a lifetime stacked against us. It takes time, dedication, and baby steps. It was worth it to me to stop the vicious cycle for my beautiful children. Is it worth it to you?
