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.

“It’s none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and I do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.” Anthony Hopkins I think we all strive for perfection. In some form or another. And I pleadContinue reading “No filters.”

Cows and Donkeys.

So I recently took some time to do a long overdue road trip to my hometown in Saskatchewan. I was lucky enough to be raised in this beautiful prairie landscape. I had an amazing childhood exploring the blanketed golden fields and basking under the vast and unending skies that once belonged to me. Or thatContinue reading “Cows and Donkeys.”
