I am a working mom. I’m older than I’d like to admit. I’m an introvert and a Taurus. I’ve known in my bones I was destined to write. I feel like if my hard-learned life lessons can save one person’s struggles, or make others feel less alone, and help fellow humans reclaim their natural born rights to hope, dignity, and respect; then I think it’s worth it. I have wanted to write since I can remember. I was always drawn to the self-help section at the bookstore. It looked to me like a vending machine of wisdom, and I wanted to know all of it, I couldn’t wait until I knew all of it. But I didn’t really have much need for it then, because I was probably nine, wandering around the discount bookstore, looking for my mom. This blog is intended to be my version of that.
I’m a mom to a toddler, a tween, and a twenty-year-old. Wife to One. I feel less like the head of a household, and more like a glorified hall monitor, trying to lead and at the same time, not be overrun by an army of little clones of me. I like to write about life and work, family, and the psychology it takes to get through it all. Lots of reflections. Probably, lots of feelings, too. But hopefully, these articles will hold some enlightenment for us all, acceptance of ourselves, and acceptance of others. People who have sat in the dark are the happiest to shine a light for you. That’s what I hope these letters do.
I completed my Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2016. I am eternally thankful that the good Lord has always put into my life, exactly what I needed and who I needed to guide me and take care of me. I am grateful for everyone who has ever taught me something new. I carry it all with me. I consider myself fortunate beyond measure to have learned what I have about people and business, faith and mindset, community and leadership, and life in general, and so I will do what I do best and try to pass it on, in some hopefully, coherent and complete sentences.
