Hello and welcome to my blog. Allow me to introduce myself.
I am Shannon. I was born and raised in Canada (well for the most part) and have Caribbean roots. I am a woman embracing her 40's and am a very emotional being. I am married and am a mom to two boys, a step-mom to a girl and a mom to our "doodle" pups. I am retired from my career, now working as a stay-at-home mom and community volunteer.
I am considered an extrovert but do have some introverted tendencies. I have a love for family, travel, nature, food and art. I also love to learn about others and to try to understand them. (There is so much more but I won't list it all here.)
I've seen and experienced so much during this journey called life. There has been so many lows and highs, disappointments and successes, moments of fear and confidence, proud moments and truly humbling moments and moments of questioning and those of clarity. There are times I wish I could erase some of these things but I realize all moments are teachable moments. All my experiences are part of my story and my journey and have in some way affected who I am today. The most exciting part, is my journey is not yet over. I am here, working on finding me and ready to embrace it all.
There have been many of my experiences that I have buried and hidden for so long. There have been topics I have chosen, out of fear, shame and uncomfortableness, not to discuss. This blog came from my desire to change that. It has come from my desire to write, to share my story, to find healing and to inspire and support others to find/see their authentic self, to embrace it, to own it and to make the most out of this journey of life.
Thank you so much for visiting me here. I created this blog because I believe in the power of sharing our stories to not only heal and grow but also to help others to feel less alone as they travel through their own journeys of life. Life is so beautiful. I hope to inspire you to never stop searching for and embracing the beauty. It's so good to have you here and I hope you enjoy the content. I look forward to seeing you here again and to getting to know you. Please feel free to send me a message let me know your thoughts and offer suggestions of topics you would like to see/read about. Please remember that this site is all about sharing, awareness, support and healthy community and my goal is to create a safe place and positive environment for people to come together.
