Hello and welcome to my new blog. This is just an introductory post and testing the waters. I will be using this blog not only for sharing information, reaching out to others but also to publish my writing.
I am 46 and have lived many lives it seems. I have endured many changes both physically and mentally. I am in a stage now of what they call the sandwich generation. I am helping my parents as well as my daughter who is 25. My dad is currently in hospice and has terminal lung cancer. I moved back to Texas in 2015 when he had his stroke to be his healthcare advocate. My dad is a Vietnam veteran and those of you have dealt with the VA understand why he needs a voice .I have grandchildren now which has made me see the world in a whole new way. All of these events and the traumatic events I left in California have me transforming myself once again. I now embrace change and never want to stop growing and learning.
I am learning to love myself as well as the voices in my head. The writing voices, the cries of those who have no voice but I can hear. This is the creative soul in me that is wanting to be let out and now is the time.
I have learned to embrace me and what my version of feminism is all about. I want to find and help others who need a voice or a light to shine on them so that they can stand tall.
I had wanted to start all of this last year but I was escaping an abusive relationship and dealing with some family issues. I realized I needed to do some self-healing before diving in. Now I am ready to jump in and let the real me out.
I am calling my blog wayfaring stranger because I have always felt like a stranger and have always been on the outside looking in. I was always different and never felt really at home. I realize its because I am not meant to be stationary nor a copy of anyone. My spirit wants to roam and connect with other misfits, outcasts and damaged souls.
I hope you will go on this journey with me and I hope to highlight your story in my blog.
Thank you for stopping by and remember to be kind and shine!
