I was born in San Francisco, CA, but raised in Houston, TX and Atlanta, GA. After relocating back to Houston, I attended the University of Houston-Downtown, where I received a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology. I don’t take myself too seriously, and I love to have fun. I am a wonderful and fearfully made woman that loves to share her world, passion and knowledge with others.
I began blogging in 2009, under the name “NaturalistaGlam”, before the term “bloggersphere” was ever a thing. I wanted an outlet to express my thoughts, feelings, loves and passions, like an online journal. Although I’ve always like to write/journal, I eventually realized I never wanted to feel pressured to publish content just to keep up with all the other bloggers. At this stage in my life, I know to run my own race and do what’s comfortable for me.
My Main Four Core Beliefs:1.) Life is a journey, not a destination. 2.) There is always room for growth, and when you stop growing, you are dead. 3.) Laughter is EVERYTHING! 4.) Whatever you put out into the world (good or bad), will always come back to you!
I have struggled with finding my passion and purpose for many years. I know now that my gift is is to uplift, counsel, and inspire. I am an advocate for the education and awareness of mental illness and suicide. I have joined the fight to help remove the stigmas and create awareness, through my cause The Save Your Life Project, on Facebook and Twitter – @thesylp.
