Pandora’s Box, I decided to open it.

I am going to start out by saying this blog isn’t about Divorce or even Narcissists, but it is about my healing journey. I was told by my mother when growing up that I am Irish, English, Scottish, and Italian. When I was a kid my brother and sister told me I was...

Crazy Making-Gaslighting

    Unfortunately, I have been gaslighted so many times in my marriage and work life that I can’t understand why many people are this way. In my marriage, it was more on things said and done by my ex that I know to be the opposite, depending on the...

When my goals are complete.

Managing my world as a single parent.

Managing my world as a single parent.

This is the second time in my 26 years of parenting that I am a single parent of two children. My older two are now adults and living on their own and then I have my littles. Being a single parent in Florida was a lot easier than it is now. In Florida, everything was...

From Surviving to Thriving

The first summer as a single parent for the second time around, really the third, but I will say being a single parent of one was much easier than two both times. Being a single mother of two and this time being in hiding makes it extra difficult but I will do...
