Thank you for stopping by, and Welcome.
My name is Audrey.
I’m a survivor.
But this is not a journey meant to focus on sorrow and pain.
While my past was saturated by it, the mission of this blog is to draw out the purpose in it, make sense of it, facilitate the healing process, dig up the past and find the missing pieces
And in the end,
Break the Chain
The abuse, the torment, the pain ends HERE, NOW, with ME!
I survived, and it’s not without a purpose!
A little bit about Me
I am a single mom in my early 30’s. I have a little boy, who is my world.
I have so many aspirations that I refuse to pick just one. I have always been a performing artist.
I remember being in diapers, running around the living room, hair brush in my hand as a make-shift microphone (tangled hair fluttering in every direction from the teeth of that poor ugly thing) and screaming at the top of my high-pitched lungs to Barry Manilow records.
No, not tapes, Records.
And, Oh did I sound Uh-MAZ-ING!!!!
The next Huggies X-Factor for sure, I was way ahead of my time. *sigh* Good times.
Anyway, I’m also a dancer. Or I was, before I started getting sick. (I discuss all that in my blog) My major in College was dance, and I took pretty much every style of dance you can think of.
A funny story, (This would be the Leo in me) some guy I dated tried to tell me that I couldn’t take up Figure Skating when I was 17. Something about “A woman’s place is in the home…” blah, blah, blah….
Well, that ended that debate. I was on the ice the next week, if for no other reason, but to shove his stupid words right where the sun don’t shine!!!
I discovered that I actually really liked figure skating though. In fact, I was kinda good at it too. It became my whole life. I loved it! Three months later, I had very close friends, a support system at the rink, and I was at competing level! (I’d like to take this moment to publicly thank that jerk-face for two shiny gold medals and a silver medal that I probably wouldn’t have gotten if it hadn’t been for his STUPID JERK-FACE COMMENT!!!!)
I’m a singer, and have recorded several songs in the studio with a member of the old 80’s rock band Steely Dan.
When I put my mind and soul to something, most anything in life, I seem to have success.
My problem has always been the tremendous conflicts I have faced. Things aren’t always as they look from the outside. The “Happy Faces” people wear, shouldn’t always be trusted. In fact, the “Happiest” ones should probably draw suspicion. But most of the time, they don’t.
Come with me as I share with you some of the lessons I have learned, the experiences I have had, and the mysteries I still have to unravel.
I am a very creative person through art, dance, music, etc. So in some of my blogs, I will use some of these to express myself. If you see a box at the bottom of a post, with a link to a song, please make sure and listen to it. I carefully hand pick the music and all materials that go into each post.
I appreciate all comments you may have, and please, feel free to tell your friends to stop by as well.
