Mini Hiatus is Over

I have been on a self imposed hiatus due to a life change with my mother and sister that required my full attention. Now that the dust has settled, I’m back and ready to focus on my blog and release my inner voice. My blog brings me peace, while allowing me to take a little break from the real world. I look forward to sharing with you again.

Let Me Introduce Myself

Hello fellow bloggers,

I have always had a helping heart and felt creating a blog would allow me to share, inspire, and connect with others. This is my first attempt at a blog, and in doing so, I have been both excited and a little nervous. I wasn’t sure if I would have the ability to write and post interesting topics on an on-going basis.

I started my blog in December and post each week.  I have found the experience to be very therapeutic and felt a sense of accomplishment. I write from my heart and based on what inspires me, with the hope it will inspire others.

My goal is to be a successful blogger. If one person reads my blog and finds inspiration, I have achieved my goal. I’m excited and look forward to this journey.
