As I prepare for my journey to the Netherlands, I am contemplating the long road which led me to this moment in time. For years I was mired in pain, suffering, and long held beliefs that emptied my soul of truth. Clinging to an ingrained mindset based on fear and self-doubt, my life held no meaning beyond my children. I rolled through life curled up like a tightly wound ball of yarn afraid of unraveling. Yet, it was the very unraveling that led me to my truth. I am perfectly imperfect, tenacious and passionate, stubborn and empathetic, and full of life. I am packing up my camera and headin’ out to change a few things!
