When I think about my life right now, I am always completely blown away at the incredible amount of love and happiness that fills my world. It certainly didn’t always look this way and that is what brings me an even deeper sense of gratitude for everything I live for today. Being orphaned at six years old meant that I was to live in foster care for the rest of my youth.
Not only had I witnessed the brutal murder of my mother at the hands of my father, but I was sentenced to move from home to home and school to school, until I was an adult. I suffered the kinds of abuse that make us all cringe when we think of little girls living in strange homes with people who abuse substances and those around them.
As you can imagine, there were some very dark times during my youth. The world seemed so big and frightening and I could barely look past the day I was living in because of the chaos and uncertainty. I always felt like I grew up overnight and didn’t really have much of a typical childhood.
window at the moon, and imagine that the reason I didn’t have any parents was because I was a child of the Universe and the sun, moon and stars were the best guides that a gypsy soul like mine could ask for.
When I became an adult, I spent my life traveling the world. I explored as often as possible and loved getting lost in a new city and having to find my way again and again. It became obvious that my childhood had prepared me all too well for the life a traveler. Every day was an adventure, I didn’t always understand the language or customs, but I always found my way to wherever I needed to go. The best part was, that for the first time, I was in charge of me and I had spent my entire life dreaming of that freedom.
Once I was on my own and had some time to sit with all the experiences I had as a child, I realized I had so much work to do to heal my past trauma and grief, forgive those who had wronged me and love myself back together.
I immersed myself in all the healing I could get; therapy, counseling, psychiatry, yoga, dance, weight lifting and lots of sitting still in mediation. These tools became my foundation for
rebuilding the woman I have become. I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and worked day and night to learn everything I could to educate myself and heal the wounds I had acquired over my lifetime.
