It’s hard to sit and write about yourself. But it does make sense that I do. If you are not a personal friend or family member of mine, I guess Lucy has some ‘splaining to do.
I am a hot mess. There is no getting around that. Why deny it?
For years, I have enjoyed writing. It has just been a passion of mine. I also love to laugh and make people laugh. Laughter gets you through the dark times in life. The hard times. The not so fun times.
My children are grown and have flown the nest. I feel as though I am lost and wandering aimlessly through life. I decided it was time to fuel my passion. To put me first and to finally reach for the dreams I put on the back burner for so long.
As a parent, we all tend to put everyone else and their needs first. Which is a sacrifice we make. But one that is well worth the sacrificing for. My children are successful and happy in life. It wasn’t always a smooth ride, but one that was well worth it.
I have prayed about this journey and asked God for guidance. So many things have fallen into place. It’s as if God opened the universe and is saying, “Dive on in, what are you waiting for?” So, it begins. When the good Lord sends you signs and whispers in your ear, you best sit up straight, pay attention and be obedient. He is trying to tell you something.
I am told that I am funny. No, I am really not. I am just a hot mess who sometimes opens her mouth at the wrong times, trips over invisible things and gives you the truth. Even if it hurts. I also pride myself on the love and empathy I have for people. I have experienced a tremendous amount of pain in my lifetime. Some of it I thought I would never get past. Even though some days are a struggle, I stay strong in my faith and in my love of life.
I feel blessed in many ways. Many prayers have been answered and many times I have triumphed through the pain. My struggles are never sugar coated. With that being said, it is hard for me to open up, so this is my way of saying, “This is me, all of me.” By doing this, I hope to touch your heart and perhaps your soul. I hope to make a difference. I hope you know you are not alone and you are never far from having a friend. I can relate to a lot of what people are going through. I believe that laughter is the miracle medicine that induces healing.
Thank you for getting to know a little bit more about me, for taking the time to join me on this journey. Your support and friendship mean so much.
