now that we’re being honest

Namaste Blog Tribe

This is an amazing time in my life. When I fired up this page, let me tell you – I didn’t see any of it coming.

Since we’ve all been chatting from back in 2009, I’ve mentioned quite a bit about my family here in the states (and our blog family) and I’ve also touched on spirituality, a tiny bit.

Everyone has pieces that make them. These are mine. My teenage years were the worst time in my life, because I had to accept that my imaginary friends weren’t imaginary – they were my spirit guides who I interact with freely on a daily basis. Once I accepted this, I started doing readings for people – helping as many as I could with whatever it is that I do.

Then I moved to Australia because I thought I was around someone on the same page. In hindsight, I see it was just a test. We all get those. As much as it may sound cliche, what I just came out of made me stronger than I’ve been this life.

There are two things in this life I know I can depend on to keep me alive: my blood tribe and my spirituality.

I believe everything is pre-destined, I believe we write our life before we live it every time. Sometimes this isn’t easy to deal with, particularly during times of getting beat on.

There are fourteen people in my immediate family here in the States, with two more babies coming in April. I spent the day yesterday at a parade with a pile of these people including the latest addition. She wasn’t here yet the last time I made it to the parade.

I spent so many years in Australia trying to understand why I was getting abused, I forgot what was back here.

And the words just keep flowing.
