Thank you for joining me in this effort to continue to understand myself and finding the ability to change my character defects as I come upon them during the process. I know I can find some clarity through this podcast same as I do when writing my blog, and I hope others can find something they can take from it to help themselves through my story as well.
Having come from a past of drug addiction, expect everything that comes with that, coupled with food addiction as I have maintained a 100 lb weight loss for a decade and still fight wherever my addiction decides it will land in my life. 
  I also smoked for 30 years from age 14 to 43 on and off but mostly on and am now 7 years without a cigarette. You name it and I might have already crossed that addiction bridge in my life and somehow I end up surviving and thriving with a good spirit and solid mind in tow. My story covers a lot of areas over the course of my 50 years of life, and I still need to go over it in detail to experience a level of sanity I so desire to maintain. I have been through a lot and want to share my story in an effort maybe help another out there that may feel hopeless and needs some words of encouragement. 
 I believe in self-help and I love to dig into topics and research how to build my esteem in an effort to build my self-confidence and self-worth also conquering my fears, admitting my downfalls and picking up the pieces when life has kicked me in the butt. Not being afraid to admit when I am wrong and making it right when I have done so. Learning how to suffer through the pain and accept the knowledge that you will grow from that and rise to the top in spite of what seems like barriers. I'm learning and want to explore more by using the spoken word on podcast form. 
  I have started over many times in my life and today is no different. I am an artist, writer, mother, addict, sister, daughter, ex-wife, lover, friend, and most of all, I am me. A free-spirited, open-minded and brutally honest person to a fault. I need a support system in more than one way. I need people to listen and help me along my way of grasping the short straw. I need affirmation and accountability to myself and I am almost always my own worst enemy so having a format and a platform to talk about will surely benefit me.
Projects I am creating at the moment are not exclusive to the podcast as I am an oil painter and collage artist as well as several books; recipe book, novel, also a photography book featuring pictures my grandmother left behind that spans two centuries featuring Houston, Texas in The Heights Houston. 
My therapy is panting with oils. I find great comfort bringing art to canvas and capturing the light on an object and know that I will now do this until my hands no longer allow me to do so.
