Hi! I’m Andi:)
Welcome to my website! I created this site as a diary, personal and spiritual growth library, reflection aid and gratitude journal.
The SMILE category is a selection of thought provoking articles and my favourite quotes from books that I believe will help you find some light when you feel stuck in the dark.
The DREAM category is filled with motivational articles to help you fulfill your hopes and dreams. Some posts may include my passions, dreams or just random things that interest me… travel, photo blogging, interior design and gardening ideas.
The LOVE category is to remind you that no matter what you are going through, adding more love to your life will help. Love makes the world a better place. Be kind. Be helpful. Do something good for others every single day. Allow love to guide your actions. Posts in this category may also include images or information about animals, friends, family and charity.
The BLOG category is a bunch of random shit I like to write about. Within this category is My Story – where I share my journey of discovery in self awareness. Through writing I found peace. Through reading others’ struggles online I found self acceptance and the realisation that I am not alone in my struggles and thoughts on life. I wanted to share my story in hopes that it may too help someone out there. My story includes my life experiences with sibling abuse and PTSD, growing up with divorced parents who hated each other, family drug addiction, sibling suicide, the grief of losing a parent and sibling, relationship love, depression, my anxiety disorder, my battle with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and PMDD and the years leading up to a diagnosis as well as treatment and lifestyle changes, and being a mom:)
I hope that you enjoy browsing through it and that it can add some value & inspiration to your life.
