“Life is a Beautiful Struggle” – Talib Kweli
This blog is for me to share, demystify, explore, understand, express and have fun.
It’s about, well…I haven’t really figured that out yet. *Hopefully* it will chronicle my triumphant emergence from the eating dis-order I’ve struggled with for over 20 years, a return to the girl I used to be, and the growth of my relationship with God.
Mostly, though, it’s just me. Unplugged.
It will have it’s share of butterflies, glitter, caterpillars, and complete and utter ridiculous-ness. Being silly helps me cope. Oh, and food! Plenty of that.
This is a PeanutButter-centric blog, but I don’t discriminate. Just don’t tell me if you’re not down with PB&J and no one gets hurt.
I love Advertising and Children’s Literature. You can see it in my blog. I like translating my experiences into stories that have some semblance of meaning I can take away after I close the “book.”
What kid wants to read a book without pictures? I illustrate my writing to move the story along, mostly using ridiculous photographs.
*Hopefully* it will be the story of how I reclaimed my self, rebuilt my life, and recovered from an eating disorder.
But maybe it will just be the story of my beautiful struggle.
My name’s Missy, by the way. I’m in my 30’s, live in South Florida and my favorite color is sparkly.
