I have been a Life Coach/Mentor for individuals that have struggled with many aspects of life ranging from drug, sexual, mental, physical, and/or verbal abuse, or those that need encouragement to achieve their goals, but unsure how or where to begin. I give them the tools to get started and the resources to continue their journey to achieve overall success. Some just need support, someone to listen, to know that there is someone who cares, thats why I am doing this. I enjoy helping others. I love to touch others lives and make a difference. Born and raised in Tacoma Washington, I have lived here all my life. Now a survivor, I was once a victim myself for half of my life, and still struggle with the hardships that still plague my mind, body, and soul. Married with 4 children – 2 girls, 2 boys, and 4 wonderful grandchildren. I have been blessed with a husband who is my best friend for almost 18 yrs now. My life is filled with enough accounts that I could write a book, or make a movie. I will share my stories, thoughts, and feelings, to the best of my abilities, from my perspective and my eyes, in the hopes that it may reach deep inside and touch you and your soul. Maybe you can relate, maybe not, or maybe it can help you in your journey, or someone you may know. Many stories and accounts may hit home. I believe that we all have a voice, some dont have the strength or courage speak. Some things I want to talk about or share may be touchy subjects, never intended to offend or mislead you, but the things that most families or abusers deny or want to keep silent, trying to restrain us by keeping us victims all our lives. I dont have a PHD, and am not a Dr. However, I am a real person, survived from a lifetime of abuse and can share my life with you. Its all real, and I believe that real people are those that can truly help others and lead the way. They are the ones who truly understand and can help. Here, you wont have to be afraid of consequences or repercussions. You will be given a chance, you will be seen, heard, and encouraged to be yourself without fear of abuse. My topics or subjects all vary,all true, and possibly harsh at times, but to the point, the end goal is to send an uplifting powerful message out there to every victim that they are not alone, to encourage you to stand up, be strong and brave! That you matter and you, your voice, your thoughts and feelings matter and the world should hear it! Silence is of the past…let your voice resonate into the air, filling your lungs so you can be free of those chains that bind you! I want to help touch your life and the lives of each and every person out there, to help them to live a happier, healthier, guilt free, productive life…enjoying its splendor, and wondrous nature, and all that the world has to offer!!! Lets work on getting past the turmoil that has been sucking and draining out the hope in your heart, and freeing your mind so you can live life as you were meant to!!! Im open to suggestions…and would love to hear them, please dont be bashful and share your thoughts. This is a safe environment in here you are free to express yourself. ! There is no wrong feelings and nobody has the right to bash or cut you down, or make threats towards anyone. This is a place to come and heal, to be harmonious and meet others such as yourself with out the feeling of guilt or betrayal! Abuse comes in all forms, shapes and sizes. I have a first hand understanding of what you need. I know what plagues your soul. Come join in and find a great support system from others that share your stories, pain, and fear. I see things differently and this may not be for everyone. I am doing this to help victims from all walks of life, by discussing that which we are made to feel ashamed of, and told to keep locked away and silent. If I can give insight or another perspective to others along the way, then thats a bonus.
“Come with me, hold my hand, and see life through my eyes.”
All things that are written and shared in here are not for judgement. It takes a willing strong individual to share his or her life like an open book. Unless your me, really, you will NEVER be able to know what my life was like…so, if you have questions…please, I encourage you to ask….and leave positive comments…they are always welcome! All of the pictures, stories, poems are written and subjected by me, belong to me. Permission must be granted to use them!
