As My Thoughts Escape My Mind…

jar of butterflies

As you all know from my previous blog, I have started writing my book. It’s really hard, remembering details from my childhood as well as details from my relationship. I must admit I’ve already shed some tears and this is just the beginning of the book. Remembering things I worked so hard to erase or cover up. To bring them back to the forefront has been difficult at times. Some things I actually did completely block out of my mind and couldn’t really write in complete detail about. Even with some of those details that I cannot remember, it brought me to tears. To me, I felt like those details were not erased by me and should not have to be something that I should forget.

It has been challenging but also therapeutic at the same time. This book needs to be written, and I hope that you all can relate to it. I thank you all for being a part in this journey. Thank you for your support with this blog page. If it wasn’t for you this book may not be written. It was with this blog page that I had hoped to share and connect with others and make a difference in someone’s life. The connections I have made shown me that I really do need to put this book out there. You all inspire me more than you could ever know.

Continue to pursue your goals. Continue healing. Continue striving. You are on this earth for a reason. Do not allow your past to make you think or feel any different. You have a voice and deserve to be heard. Break the silence. Let’s raise awareness and let it be known that enough is enough!

THIS YOUTUBE VIDEO IS A DOCUMENTARY OF THE REAL LIFE STORIES OF 3 WOMEN WHO ARE VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. THIS VIDEO FOLLOWS POLICE FROM THE TIME OF THE CALL AND FOLLOWS THE VICTIMS THROUGH THE COURT PROCESS. IT IS VERY GRAPHIC FROM THE BEGINNING.

I UNDERSTAND THAT SOME MAY NOT BE ABLE TO WATCH THIS VIDEO, BUT THIS VIDEO DOES NEED TO BE SHARED TO SHOW EXACTLY WHAT GOES ON BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.

IF YOU DECIDE TO SHARE THIS PLEASE BE SURE TO ALSO PLACE A TRIGGER WARNING ALONG WITH YOUR POST.

I’m Still Here

Hey everyone,

Sorry I have not been on with my usual weekly, bi-weekly posts. I have taken time away to focus my thoughts on a project I have been putting off for years. I FINALLY DECIDED TO START WRITING MY BOOK! YES!!! Over the weekend I officially decided to start working on it.

With that being said, I also decided that as for my newsletter, I would make it a monthly newsletter instead of a weekly newsletter. I will still be posting on here occasionally, most likely posting more videos, and other blogs I come across. I do not want to keep my readers in the dark or make them feel like I stopped doing this. I love posting on here, and even more I love he feedback I get from each and every one of you.

I know while writing this book I am going to have some difficult moments, and have times where memories will bring me to tears. Yet at the same time this book needs to be written and it needs to be shared. I will post updates on the book, and even possibly blog about what I am feeling while discussing certain topics.

In this book I plan too bear it all. In this book I plan to break barriers in my life in order to help others break their own barriers.

I ask that you all bear with me. Continue supporting one another.and remember to continue spreading the word. Continue to bring awareness about domestic violence and all the forms of abuse. Continue to break the silence!

Thank you all so much for your continued support!
