I would say my life has been anything but normal. I've experienced loss in all areas of my life, and navigating my way through those issues allowed me to gain perspective. Being a black West Indian American girl did not make my life any easier. It did, however, make it a little more interesting. Falling in love did not come without pain. Losing a loved one did not come without regret. We all go through our personal turmoils, and I am fully aware that it only gets harder, but I am definitely prepared this time around. This page was created because I needed a space to share my thoughts, to share my life, and anything I learn along my journey. If I'm lucky I might actually help someone. The first time I actually laid in bed and reflected on life, I had scared myself. The more I thought about it I started to understand that the only reason I was so scared is because I felt lost. I didn't know who I was, or what I wanted out of this life. I was scared about not knowing what the future held. I lived in fear. I had to become okay with not knowing. I had to become okay with being alone. I had to be present in my own life and create short term goals for myself in order to stay productive. By doing that I was able to create some sort of path for myself. I'm not saying that I have everything all figured out, but I've come a long way from being completely lost. This is my story of loss, love, and fun. I know there is someone out there who needs someone to relate to, and I hope they are able to make their way to this site.
