welcome

Welcome to my website 🙂

I write to make a difference in peoples lives. Everything I write about comes from a place of experience, learning, heartache, decision making, awareness and discovery. You will find a collection of blog entries written for the purpose of inspiring individuals of all ages. These include topics on unhealthy/toxic relationships, low self esteem, midlife, marriage, teenage life and various other areas all written from my heart to yours.

I was married for 27 yrs and had five incredible children. In 2013 I made a decision to begin studying Psychology part time as a fulltime mum. In July of 2016 my life changed over night. The change had me move states with very little finances, my adult children I had to leave behind with their father and suddenly I found myself having to start life all over again at the age of 46 years old.

Together with my then 9 year old son we drove to my parents home with a car full of suitcases packed with clothes. The next day I was in an unemployment office speaking with a social worker over the phone. The social worker was fantastic and provided me with a lot of assistance and information. “It was real I had left an abusive marriage”.

From my own pain and triumphs I write these blogs to be a light in a dark world. My passion is to let individuals know they are not alone with their struggles, others have been there too!

As humans our goal is to be happy. We marry the person we believe is the right one. It doesnt always workout! It can be hard to accept that a relationship could be abusive. I was in denial for decades as i desperately wanted it to work. In that process i denied myself of true happiness and peace.

When we ignore what is going on our physical and mental worlds start to unravel and take its toll. We cant let unhealthy situations be a burden we carry for years on end. The earlier you begin to acknowledge the core issues the better it will be for you in the long run.

You do not need to be a martyr for someone else’s pain they choose not to deal with. You do not need to put yourself last. You don’t need to accept abuse whatever the form it takes. Abuse is abuse and it is harmful to anyone.

    • Yes 5 children 🙂 Four of them are adults now and the youngest is turning 9. That being said when you are a parent you are always a parent! Through the good and the bad and YES there are tough days however, it is all worth it. With the first child you learn ALOT so the second child is much easier 🙂 Thanks for your encouraging comment, much appreciated!
