It's okay to be afraid
For love can mean pain
Safer to hold back, put up a front
Not go after what you really want
But does that not hurt more
Make your heart feel torn
Trying to speak through your eyes
Keeping the words trapped inside
Fear can make it hard to move
Please know it's not just you
But some risks are worth taking
And choices worth making
It's hard to give your all
When you're afraid of the fall
Perhaps falling isn't so scary though
If you aren't falling alone
I know the fear of vulnerability
But maybe real safety
Is found in someone's arms
Being intertwined with someone's heart

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
