ABOUT US

Let’s Get Aquainted 

I am 40 years old, happily married, four beautiful children, two Bachelor’s degrees and a Master’s in the works. I am considered a mature student since I went back to school at the age of 35. I went to college first, achieved a Law Clerk diploma (with Honours) and then I went to University. 

Two of my kids have mild intellectual disability and one is waiting for a referral to find out if they have dyslexia. I have been divorced twice and married three times (third times a charm, right?! lol) I have been on social assistance and now I am not. I have lived in different counties, different states, and I am an immigrant. (I am a Canadian Citizen now lol) 

This blog is here because it was time I shared my experiences. I have finally gotten to a place that allows me to be proud of who I am today. I have stopped allowing shame dictate my next steps in life. I chosen courage over shame and for those reasons I decided to be here for anyone who feels the same. I am the friend I wish I had.

As a visitor here, you are part of a fantastic community. Your encouraging feedback will remind me why I have decided to allow my vulnerabilities be so public. I understand that my story is not to remind me of how shameful I felt, it is to provide hope for those who feel or have felt what I have at a point in my life. I am here to offer a common story and a safe place to visit and remind yourself that you are not alone.


Thank you so much for being part of this community.

Listen to my Podcast, follow me on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook. Also, Feel free to Donate, I am trying to share my message to as many people in the world but I’m doing it on a “shoestring budget”. I am in school full-time, working part-time, with my beautiful kids and one income earner to keep us afloat. Any donation will go to the payment of the hosting platforms of this website and my podcast. Trust me, if it’s it free I use it.
