I have learned true warriors of this life understand that battles are won not with resistance but with persistence. Resistance is far too temporary a strategy for the lifelong journey of finding oneself.

A Commitment to My Community:
If you are on this page you're in my tribe and I am eternally grateful for you.
This site is not just a place to learn about my work, it's my dream come true. I have always been one to connect to others through my written words. There is something about expressing myself through the words on a page that disarms my spirit in a way no other form of expression can. My written words are my most vulnerable self. I hope you visit this page and find encouragement, hope, a hard truth or some inspiration to be your most authentic self.
I promise to be my most authentic self in return. I promise to share the truth - the good of it and the bad of it all. I promise to consider you all, even when I am afraid of the vulnerability this labor of love will take. I am grateful you are here and I promise to never take my God-given platforms for granted. My hope is that you find healing when you need it, laughter when you need it, and a reason to keep moving forward when you need it. I am no doctor, therapist or expert. I am a woman who often feels like a girl living a life I could once only imagine. I am here to share all that comes with that. I hope you get what you need, but not because I have all of the answers. I have very few answers. Most days, I am a hot mess overanalyzing myself, just like everyone else. Instead of answers, I hope you find comfort in knowing that you are not alone. Whatever it is you are facing, you are not alone. I hope you get what you need through a connection to my words. I promise represent my real truth, inspirations and experiences.
I hope you also recognize that my truth is only mine and that each of us have a reality that is unique. How beautiful an existence to live every day with a truth that is uniquely ours and how important an opportunity to keep ourselves open to understanding the truths of others. Take what you need when you need it and discard the rest.
Please know, having this opportunity to share my thoughts connects me to all of you heals my spirit and calms my fears. You are my tribe and I am extremely grateful for you.
All my love and gratitude,
