Welcome to my diary, my journey, as I tripped and crawled through the darkest time in my life- when I witnessed  people that I held incredibly close to me shatter my very existence with their words and actions. The things within this book spine are extremely raw and exceptionally real. You and I are going to get very close, the details in this book, although oddly general, are incredibly specific. Yes, I realize what I just said and as you read my words you will see what I mean. As you silently gasp and mentally bitch slap me, please be kind because my story is just that - my story. It is not any more or less special than yours. In fact the only difference between our stories are the choices we made at each of the crossroads in our lives. For most of my life the choices I made were not based on my happiness but on everyone else’s. This book describes what I have experienced in my journey to finding my happiness and hopefully never letting it go. Sadly, it took me thirty six years to find the strength I need to detoxify my life and self-view and find someone who is worthy of my awesomeness. Thirty six years to shatter the negative foundation I had built shatter the ultimate representative I created to hide behind and begin the process of building a new foundation. Only this foundation will be built on strength, confidence and above all, happiness. So take a minute or thirty and sit with my story for a while. You never know what you might find out.

Excerpt:

In my present, I have some amazing friends who told me that
my opening sentence needs to hook my audience, tease them just
enough that they want to read another sentence then another and
another until they have blown through the climax and are left breath-
less and sweaty at the end. Pssh, fuck that noise, my motto is: go big
or go home, so I clearly had to do more than a sentence. I decided to
give you a whole damn chapter that pulls you in and ignites some-
thing inside of you that has been waiting so patiently and obediently
to come out and play.
Look at this introductory chapter as that first time with your
new love interest. Not the first time you wish you had with them - I
know the steamy scenes you are currently running through your mind
that you have taken from movies or TV. I swear being so connected
to the world has really killed our imaginations...sheesh. Rather, I
want you to try to picture the first time you had sex with the last
person you had sex with! That’s what this first chapter is for you and
I, our first time together, a chance to let you feel me out, try me on
for size and see if you want to come back for more.


About the Author


Welcome to my real, crazy, emotional, probably too honest journey. I am an everyday girl in this everyday world trying to keep my head above water and within the pages of this book you will learn about the things that have broken me down and the steps I am taking to build back up. You will see, my new friends, this story is written in a unique, general, conversational voice, which was my choice. I want you to be able to picture yourself in my shoes, relate my trials and tribulations to yours and see that you too can find your happiness. Even if you don’t realize this yet, every single one of us possesses things inside of ourselves that we didn't know were there. It took my life taking a crazy right turn and dumping me at the lowest possible point before I could see the strength within myself. We are not defined by what we do, we are defined by the choices we make. I decided when I put pen to paper that I want my choices to start defining me as strong, confident, secure and above all else, happy. So, who am I? How about I tell you who I was. A self-loathing shell of myself who put everyone else’s happiness before my own. Herein lies my story to find that happiness and all of the ups and downs along the way. See who I was and who I am trying to become and maybe, somewhere in there, you will find out a little about yourself too.
