Hi, my name is Misty, and I am just like you trying to enjoy and survive this turbulent life to the best of my ability. I am a single mother of 2 beautiful children, RJ(6) and Twila Mae(18 months), as a new single momma, I am just trying her best to figure things out. I am currently working on recovering from 4 years of discovery and betrayal trauma and trying to find my self-worth and purpose again.
I work full time to help maintain the best life I can for my little humans. I am a dance educator and choreographer, and the founder and owner of a professional dance company called “God’s Messengers.” The most important role I play and ever will play is being a mother.
I started this blog over five years ago to share my two cents in hopes of helping others with life’s nonsense. However, my life became an active volcano that erupted shortly after starting my blog, and the lava is still burning deep, but I am surviving and finding new hope every day. As I go through immense amounts of therapy, writing, and dancing, I have felt the need to write again and share with others to educate about my life’s nonsense. I want to share the journey of how I got where I am and what happened in hopes of helping others to either know how to handle their tough situations or prevent them from having them.
I have played several roles in my life’s journey and have been able to learn from each road I have traveled. I do not always learn right away, but sometimes through humility, I am open and willing to learn. I have been a victim, culprit, pessimist, optimist, rescuer, counselor, counseled, referee, on the offense, on the defense, and a mediator. I have stood tall, slumped low, and everything in between, but “Who hasn’t?.” We are all fighting a fierce battle here on earth.
Even when the going gets tough, I try to find love in all my situations, even the ones that enter me into the deepest darkest places. I say try because I don’t always succeed; those dark places make me very aware and grateful for the light places I have been and want to stay. I will share many of these situations with you throughout this blog but also try to not hurt others around me.
I do believe with all my heart in what I believe to be a true gospel. I have faith in what it is and what it stands for, and I have had my very own personal conversion to this gospel. I hope to often write about the teachings and discoveries I have found through my conversion to this gospel. It was through my sins, trials, and mistakes that I fell away from my gospel, and then it was through a much larger scale of sins, tests, and mistakes that I found my way back to my gospel.
I am more insecure, scared, and anxious than ever before in my life, but I am always trying to battle those habits of Satan with love and perseverance from God. Do I fail? Yes, every day, but even through the hardest times, I try to hold on to any hope I can find.
Love is a powerful tool, and one that has helped me conquer a lot of life’s nonsense.
