I’m not actually a blonde but I’ve always felt I should be.
I’m an extroverted introvert. I am either the centre of attention or on my couch in leggings watching Netflix.
I’m creative AF and I have a strong eye for decor, design, fashion and organization.
I am fiercely loyal and love with my whole heart. I’ve been told I wear my heart on my sleeve and I am honest to a fault.
I’m turning 40 this year and that use to upset me. Now I’m super excited because I have an amazing plan in the works.
I have a natural curiosity, I am often fearless but not always.
I’ve just recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and it’s scary as hell.
The last year and a half of life has been particularly difficult. So many ups and downs, so many wins and loses. I’ve felt loved and alone. I’ve pushed people away all while wishing they would understand that I was actually begging them not to leave me alone.
Being alone is my greatest fear.
Don’t get me wrong there has been a lot of joy. And the diagnosis is providing me with the strategies I need to thrive. The purpose of this blog is to share the joyful moments, some of the dark moments, what I’m learning. It’s meant to provide advocacy, to reduce bias toward brain disorders. To let me be creative, to heal, to vent and most important to grow.
So if you’ve made it this far. Thank you. I hope you will follow my journey. I also apologize in advance because I’m terrible at editing :).
