I figure a good place to start with this content would be to tell you a little about me and my family and who we are. My name is Brandi. I am married to Steven and we have two boys named Tucker and Tenison. Those boys are my whole world. They are the reason I am the person that I am and they are what wakes me up every morning...Even on those hard days.
I want more than anything to help others feel and understand their true worth in the world. Sometimes life just plain SUCKS! Anyone else think that? But man, it sure can be amazing too. I feel so blessed to have been taught and have learned so much by the life lessons I have had. I am not an expert in many things but I can tell you that I have learned to not let the hard times define us.
I have learned to allow myself to feel my emotions. Yep, you heard that right! I think it's important to ALLOW ourselves to feel our emotions but to not let them define us. You might be thinking, well wait, what's the difference? Well for me the difference is between living your life and not just surviving. Now, does that mean that there will be times that you are just doing the best you can to get out of bed every day? You bet it does. What it DOESN'T mean is NEVER getting out of bed and allowing yourself to live.
I remember times when I have experienced loss throughout my life, how it broke me and made me really question my purpose. Having people that have gone through hard things...not necessary the same as me, but hard things in general, really helped me get out of that slump and that is my hope for you here.
I want to be able to provide a community of people who have a place to be able to express their feelings and emotions and not feel they have to shut them down or ignore them, but instead allow themselves to feel them and be able to find the joy to live through it...not just SURVIVE
