Victim or Survivor? Living & Healing After Abuse/Violence

This is a tough topic to write on and an even tougher one to make a video about! There’s already a ton of videos and articles out there on this topic so I decided to go about it a little differently. Yes, this might sound harsh but the point is pretty straightforward: You have to move on. The more you dwell on the past, the less you heal. Healing is about accepting the past and learning to live despite it. Continue reading Victim or Survivor? Living & Healing After Abuse/Violence

To Nomad or Not To Nomad?

I had an amazing experience in my younger years: I was a nomad. I was floating where ever the winds took me with all of my worldly possessions in a bag on my back. I didn’t quite do it “right” in those days… I hitchhiked, I jumped freight trains, I hiked and hiked and hiked. Luckily, I survived intact and with a much brighter view of the world around me. I learned what was truly important in life and in this world and it’s not what a lot of us think! It’s family, it’s those friends you meet along the way that you suddenly realize you view as if they were an actual sibling, parent or child of yours… even though they aren’t. It’s the earth itself in all her all her splendor. It’s those spaces far out in the wilds still untouched by human hands, wild and free! Continue reading To Nomad or Not To Nomad?

What?! Homemade Bear Grease Lotion! (recipe included!!)

Yes, I do love making stuff! All my friends know that I am crafty: soaps, lotions, knitting, woodworking, etc. I love being creative with my hands! So, the idea of making lotion isn’t too far-flung for me. The first time my husband saw me make it, he was amazed at how fast, easy and incredibly low cost it was to make a completely all-natural, spa-quality lotion!

Thoughts on Life and Death… Musings and Sharing

I finally got around to writing an article about a recent video that I published. I was inspired and it ended up being a rather long video at just over 22 minutes… a got a lot of talking in! I also touched on a lot of different topics… I guess you could say it was a little chaotic in that I didn’t really follow any set plan and just went where my thoughts took me.

LOL! Even though this is something that I am truly passionate about, Continue reading New Updates! (28 Jan 2018)

Family… Born or Earned?

Ok, I know this is going to be considered highly controversial for some who read it but I’m just sharing my honest views and opinions. They may change over time but this is how I feel about it right now…

I know what the typical idea of the family unit consists of and I myself am a part of a “traditional family unit”, with my husband and our son, our dog and ferret. Ok, so not everyone considers a ferret as a part of a typical family but we have always been black sheep! LOL! Family is SO important! Continue reading Family… Born or Earned?
