About Me

Thank you so much for checking out my articles.  I started this site because I want to offer encouragement to people who are doing their best to get through each day.  Every day, out in the world, I see people who are tired, who work tough jobs, raise kids, and deal with the daily difficulties of life.  I wish I had a magic wand I could wave to make everyone happy, but alas, I do not.  So this is the next best thing.

I have many years, decades even, of experience in self-care and personal growth.  I spent my teen years and twenties very bitter and angry.  I was told that I was unpleasant to be around, and that people didn’t like working with me.  I could even be mean.  I didn’t have the skills to care for myself.

Throughout my later twenties and into my early thirties I was introduced to different things such as mindfulness, meditation and yoga.  These things took root in me and began a very slow progression over the next decade and a half.  Within the last five years I have implemented self-care rituals on a daily basis, and it has changed my life.  My transformation really grew wheels two years ago when I realized that I love myself, something that was not as difficult as I thought it would be!

In December of 2022 I discovered my life’s purpose: to love others.  It was both a simple and profound discovery.  I believe we all have that capacity within us if we nurture it, but we have to nurture ourselves first.  Self-care is not selfish, it’s actually selfless.  We cannot care for others if we do not care for ourselves first.  You can’t give from an empty bucket.  There is so much more to life than falling exhausted into bed every day.  I know it’s possible.  Let me show you how.
