pain – loss – grief – change – move – heal
a journey of finding the inner-strength to choose a new beginning and discovering the power of unconditional love
if my words, my story, my journey can affect the life of another, to provide hope, support, awareness, then i will be forever thankful. in this world, there is a need to encourage empathy, sympathy, compassion.
my heart is on my sleeve. it’s always been there, it always will.
sensitivity and perfectionism have been with me for as long as i can remember. it’s good and bad, i feel more than most, and expect more out of myself than i do others. my hope was and still is to bring kindness and peace to the lives of others.
when i was 15, i became anorexic, the battle was one that, without the support and love of my family, i’m not sure where, or if, i would be here today. i owe so much to the renfrew center in philadelphia, pa for all of their help through this battle. now, some 20+ years later, it’s a struggle, but, i continue to fight and with love and support, my mind and spirit is trying to heal.
married at 21, the person i thought would love me forever, became the person that would verbally and emotionally abuse me time after time. i remained for 10 years. it took that long to build the strength i needed, i thought about it so many times, but the fear that shook me to my core, kept me frozen. until one day, when all the strength i didn’t know i had, was there, and i believe it is there for so many others that just need the hope, support and love to see it.
i now live a quiet life, i work, i volunteer, i hike, camp and enjoy running and photography. i find peace in knowing that the person i am, just me, is enough and never again will anyone ever make me feel like less than that.
