My Messy Life


“It is only when you take responsibility for your life that you discover how powerful you truly are.”

Allanah Hunt

Who Am I…

To be clear, I am not a therapist or a counselor or a psychologist or a licensed practitioner of any kind.  I am just a person who has had a messy life.  I am someone just like you.  Someone who hasn’t always made the right choices or gone in the right direction to get myself on a better path.  I have had to tap into strength and courage I never knew I had.  And because of that, I would like to share my story with you. 

You will read stories that are hopeful and stories that are not.  I have written them all in my journey.  This is my journal through my journey and it is not over.  Some stories you read will have been written years ago.  Some are not yet written.  I will try to compile them in a sequence that makes sense. 

At times this journal will read as a journey of struggle.  Emotional and verbal abuse, divorce and loss, hurt and anger, depression, anxiety and fear.  There are also stories of physical and mental endurance, strength and courage, love and laughter, friendship, family and faith.  They are words of my hopes, my fears, my dreams and everything else in between. 

If you chose to stay with me, I ask of you one thing.  That with each story you read, you understand the self-reflection in each.  The accountability in each choice I have made, good and bad.  Each writing holds my truth and the understanding that asking the question “why” in order to get to a positive ending, is acceptable.

This is My Messy Life.  A journey to self-love and happiness.

The laws of attraction.

“You cannot change the people around you, but you can change the people you chose to be around.” Unknown For most of my adult life I felt like I have taken care of people.  Given up attention for myself to focus on others.  Some needed my attention because they were learning.  Some needed my attentionContinue reading “The laws of attraction.”

Finding happy.

I have found a love and passion this past year for writing that I did not know existed. I had always wanted to try but lacked the courage and motivation. I began writing – or rather journaling – in 2019. My hardest, most challenging year so far. Writing was my meditation. My release. A wayContinue reading “Finding happy.”
