Hi, my name is Joy! I am a mid-life empty-nester on a never ending journey to find myself, be true to myself, and bring "the real me" where I ever go. I enjoy empowering others to do the same. I am a therapist in the mental health field, but I am not immune to life's traumas, tragedies, and tricks. Writing, laughter, and adventure are some of my coping strategies when it seems life is unraveling. I have had so many "you can't make this sh$t up/WTF experiences that at this point, it only makes sense to blog about them. The most recent events in my life were the catalyst to this new venture. My hope in creating this blog is that you realize you are not alone. There is nothing worse than feeling like you are fighting disaster demons all by yourself and then feeling judged for the battle. The healing journey is a series of unraveling and reweaving as you discover yourself in the process. The result is a beautiful tapestry that tells a story. It's a story of you. Me. And all the moments in between. I might have never met you, but we are now part of each other's healing journey because you landed on this page for a reason. So, if you feel like you or your life has unraveled, and you are looking for hope, meaning, and even laughter in the madness, you have come to the right place. Maybe we can reweave this tapestry together and proudly display our authentic masterpiece to bring empowerment to others.
