I have been a television producer, scriptwriter, graphic designer, photographer, video editor, college professor, elementary school teacher, curriculum author, executive director, business owner, anger management/domestic violence specialist, traffic school instructor, family mediator, waitress, receptionist, and even an ordained minister.
If you read my resume, you'd probably think, "wow, this woman has done everything," and yet the insecure little girl hidden underneath the achievements is really who drives me to be who I am. I just want to make my trip around this big blue marble mean something.
I grew up being raised by my very strong and determined mother. She had a tough upbringing and was determined to make it different for her children. My father traveled most of the time, so it was like living in a single parent home in many respects. My mother was always over worked, and frustrated that she had to do it alone. Yet, we saw our father as the knight in shining armor, because when he came home, for a day or two, everything was perfect. We resented our mother and adored our father with no justification other than feelings.
By 2001, I was the mother of five adoring sons, yet extremely miserable in my marriage and feeling terribly unaccomplished. I had spent a decade trying to fill many roles in my list to please my husband in hopes that I could feel good enough for myself. One day I woke up and I decided to take a turn from this predictable dysfunctional future that lay ahead for my family, so I left the marriage. The door that I walked through at that very moment would transform me into the lifelong family advocate I am now. Little did I know the hell I would stir up.
