Little about me and my blog.
Let me start my saying thanks for reading my blog. If I’m writing to no one, it’s okay I talk to myself sometimes too. Someone told me that talking to yourself is a sign of intelligence, I believe it. Do not google it and spoil my only delusion if I am wrong, please!
I never thought I could start a charity and help others, but it turns out I can do anything that I believe I can do! I owe that credit to various people, books, experiences, God obviously, and one amazing documentary. If you haven’t heard of it, you need to watch it, game changer. There is a link at the bottom of the page to the documentary HEAL!!
I never thought I would right a blog, but here I am, it is kinda exciting! I’m aware blogging isn’t a new thing either. I’m not trying to be trendy either, but I love it when I see people that are naturally just cool people. I haven’t taken a poll and asked if anyone thinks that about me, my daughter keeps me in check in that regards. I’m an imperfect human sharing my thought, my story, and randomness all for the greater good of others.
You likely have to read the entire first page, or a few posts to grasp the intention with this blog. I am winging it, and it might not be pretty process, all neat and orderly. I have a creative side, therefore I experience moments when I am in the middle of a story and the best idea ever pops in my head. I’m certain that is going to be reflective in my blog. It that happens, I always circle back. Be patient with me! I’m going to keep it real, I’m not perfect, neither is this blog! Back to the intro…..see? Didn’t take long!
I am thankful for this life and how experiences shift your perception. The truth is isn’t a vaccine to protect you from life experiences. NO ONE can avoid unfortunate circumstances. Human fallibilities is this invisible thread connecting us to one another.
I firmly believe that some of us have to It is so easy to look the other way to others suffering, brushing it off thinking that it is sad, but there’s nothing we can do. What if there is something we can do? What if there is something I can do became the new main focus in my life.
If the most difficult experience in your life is really was really not that difficult, I am so unbelievably grateful that you have not suffered a tremendous amount. I’m not shaming anyone for having a good life! The ironic part is that people don’t share the not so pretty parts, they share the life that looks amazing. That’s another topic I have a lot to say about.
I won’t go to deep here, but I went through what I would call a terrible 4-5 years. I kept up the facade, I don’t like to complain, and I didn’t want to share what I was dealing with. Right or wrong, it was how I handled it. Through the hardest of times I focused on one thing, that there were so many people out there that didn’t have clean water, were fighting to live another day.
Even when rock bottom had a basement, another basement, and so on. I was wondering if the question, can it get any worse was taunting the universe to give it a try. If anyone knows me personally and they are reading my blog, they have no idea what I am talking about, and thats because I have only shared with possibly 3 really close friends until now. I’m not going into detail either, not yet.
I realized nothing is about me, unless I make it about me. Yes, this is my blog and it might say a thing or two that is about me for the purpose of sharing what I learned, how I grew, changed my mindset, and thats the huge contradiction that I struggled with regarding writing a blog.
What I gained during these experiences was a completely new mindset, compassion on a profound level. It was truly a pivotal point in my life that I wouldn’t change. I will preface this with I have never been an egotistical person, I have always been fairly selfless. I did not go from a selfish self absorbed jerk, to I care about others, once again it was still a profound.
I’m on this earth because I have a purpose and I don’t feel as though it’s to be happy, but I am happier than I have ever been and I still have a foot in the basement. I found my purpose and I wasn’t searching for a purpose. It is comparable to looking for a pencil and finding a cookie! My purpose is to serve others, to help others, to see suffering on a deeper level, and be just crazy enough to think I can do something about it.
As a mother, I know that is part of my purpose in life, to raise my amazing little human. I am not raising her to be the best athlete, to get the best grades, to get the highest paying job, I am rating her to be a kind, loving child, and she is, she inspires me. I’m a good mom, I can’t say I nailed it. There’s a learning curve, and if you’re a mother you know what I am talking about. However, I’m certain theres no one that questions that I’m doing the mom job well.
The photos, art work, and paintings on my blog, is my art.
I own the Copyright to my paintings and art, little fun fact. Don’t make it weird!
All the artwork, photographs, paintings, etc on my blog is all my own. My paintings are the paintings posted, I said that correctly. The Photographs either myself or my daughter took. Please ask if you would like to use them, it is the right thing to do, The digital art is art that I digitally created as well. If you want to use any of it, please ask. It is a copyright issue, so it’s also the legal thing to do. I am willing to allow you to use it, but you need to contact me first.
As promised, click Here to watch the documentary Heal by Director Kelly Noonan. She and the entire cast do an amazing job opening your eyes to your own potential. It is by far the best documentary I have ever and believe will ever see in my life. The entire cast does an amazing job using their purpose in life to help those who have literally lost hope.
Thanks so much, enjoy my blog.
