If you're afraid of letting me in
Getting too close, feeling exposed
Now you can't make a move
Don't know what to do
Slowly pulling away into safety
If your heart is carefully guarded
You don't want to get hurt here
Be left alone and brokenhearted
Don't know what you think
While your heart is so busy pounding
If you think I won't stay
So you push me away
It's safer to keep a good distance
Saying it's okay, really
This is, after all, what you wanted
If you're holding back and unsure
This is all too much now
Just take hold of my hand
I've been there before, I understand
Let me be brave for you

Who am I?
That’s a good question. Something I’m still trying to figure out.
I’m a single mom of two amazing, free spirited kids. But a mother is not all that I am. That I do know.
I was born and raised in Alabama but now live in Canada where I feel like I’m really supposed to be.
I find my passion in being creative. Whether it’s something I make, write, draw or a picture I take. That creative part of me has always been my therapy.
I’m a free spirited, wild at heart, rebel (so I’ve been told) with an empath’s soul.
I’m also a sexual abuse survivor with PTSD and social anxiety.
I’m broken and damaged but a total bada** finding my way to healing.
This blog started out as a way to track my journey to a healthier life. But along the way I discovered I would never truly be whole if I didn’t face the demons of my past. So I finally faced my past abuse which set me down a path I never imagined.
I don’t know where this journey will take me or how this blog will evolve. But I do know life has been doing a good job of working itself out and I’m just trying to stay out of the way and see where it leads me. There’s been so much darkness in my life but maybe along the way I’ll also find some light.
Thank you for joining me on my journey
