Hallelujah the blues have lifted (for now!) What helped? Venting and talking about my feelings definitely helped. I also went to a Celebrate Recovery group that was very helpful. But the main thing helped is putting into action my thoughts of doing things for others. I do a lot to help people that use the … Continue reading Do To Others As You Would Have Them Do To You
This past weekend my hubby and I took a day trip to a local park and did a little hiking. I haven't done as much walking this summer as I would have liked. It's been hot and I've been unmotivated. Sometimes self care is getting out there and doing things you don't care to do. … Continue reading Weekend Self Care
My husband and I decided to spend this hot summer Sunday at the county park! It was a great day of self care!!! I even spotted a butterfly! It's so nice to just sit back and enjoy life! Hope you enjoy the pictures from our day!
Get Happy. My new Bath and Body Works Lotion and Body Spray set. Even nearly 9 years later I am still learning how to love my body after it betrayed me.

Christmas time is here! Jeff and I had a great Thanksgiving. I made Thanksgiving Dinner for the first time. It wasn't much, but to me it was everything.

We also … Continue reading It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

So, my heart has wanted to do more for victims of Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence. I really wanted to be an on the scene victim advocate, and I even met with someone today to potentionally do a trial run of it. But, my heart has been heavy. I don't feel I am emotionally ready. … Continue reading Being An Advocate How You Can Is Okay
I was introduced to the horrifying world of depression, anxiety, and the constant need to self harm at the age of 14. I just turned 28. I have come so far and I am able to work part time again. But, what a lot of people don’t realize is that most of the time, the little bit I’m out living a “normal” life, it can take all the strength I can muster and when I go home, all I want to do is be at home away from the world and work on my self care so I can go out and do it again.
Sometimes I just love doing complete body self-care, clean shaven, great smelling lotion all over my body, putting on a sexy dress, lighting some candles and loving the heck out of my sexy self. That's my take on healing and loving myself and my body again. Today it feels so freeing and healing. I'm telling … Continue reading Get Sexy For Yourself!!

What's not okay, is to judge people because there story isn't yours. Their battle isn't the same as yours. Their … Continue reading Everyone Has a Story
