I started this blog because I wanted to share my story with women out there who may find themselves facing challenges in life. Life is hard sometimes, especially when you're a woman. I'm no stranger to the pitfalls of life and the many challenges and insecurities or fears that go along with trying to get through thing we call Life. I've survived divorce, custody battles, the death of my father, a 16 year eating disorder, I've done my best to raise 3 wonderful children as a single mom and now I'm battling breast cancer. My dad passed away almost 3 years ago. I was devastated. Don't ask me why but my life turned upside down. I quit my job, broke up with my boyfriend, packed up my bags, left my family, friends and worse my children and moved to San Francisco in the hopes of finding happiness. The result was I hit rock bottom. For the first time in my life, I found myself facing challenges I couldn't over come. I found myself broke and worse a failure. Once upon a time I was on top of the world. God certainly has a sense of humor. And so do I. Now I am battling breast cancer but I've always been a fighter and though at times I feel like I'm "living a life of illusion", if there's one thing I know, this too shall pass. My philosophy is you have to find the humor in all things. There is always something to be grateful for and there is always, always something to laugh about. My hope is that by sharing my stories, my experiences, my ups and my downs, that someone reading my blog will find themselves inspired to keep going and never give up!! If I can do it....So can you. I read a quote the other day, it said "She was unstoppable! Not because she didn't have failures or doubts, but because she continued on despite them" I am contining my fight every day and I hope that I will be the inspiration you need to do the same. I'm an overcomer! I'm a Survivor! I'm Fierce, Fabulous & I'm Funny!!
