Welcome and thanks so much for stopping by! This site was created to offer a place for people to find reassurance that their despair doesn’t have to be permanent. A place where I share my gratitude for all that happens in my life. I wanted to create a place dedicated to sharing life’s challenges and how we can get through them with peace, even in the midst of chaos and pain. Consider this a safe haven for loving conversation and tips on how to find joy where you thought there was none.

have been writing since 2011 when I started my very first blog Confessions Of A Thinkaholic” on blogger. It’s a place where I share my musings and opinions about whatever springs to mind. Over the years, and especially after losing my mother, mother-in-law, and brother all within very close proximity of each other, it has evolved into something so much more. This website is the next step in the evolution of my life. I promise to remain honest and transparent about my life so that you can have the courage to go on faithfully in yours. I’d be honored if you came along for the ride.

I honor each and every one of you and welcome your feedback, suggestions, and questions. Please feel free to use the Contact page to tell me what you love about the site, what you would like to see in the future or any questions you may have. This is for you, after all.

For more information on my journey through loss and the pursuit of Enlightenment, I invite you to read these posts from my first blog, Confessions of a Thinkaholic.
