MeHi, I’m Carrie

Let me ask you something…..Are you living your best possible life?

After six years of sexual abuse I found myself living a life of emptiness and despair.  Every day was a fight to survive.  One day I decided I had to take control of my future or it would control me.

Since that time I have been taking steps to find that girl that I was before it all happened.  I have tried anything and everything.

I have read books, done EMDR, EFT, RTT, years of therapy, listened to podcasts, and began meditation. Recently I began writing again, which is why I started this blog. I write so I can share my experiences and so others, like you, can benefit from my struggles.

If anyone knows heartache, depression, failure and pain its me.  Despite it all, I have continued to strive to be a better version of myself and to overcome whatever obstacles have been placed in front of me.  For many years I thought I was stuck in misery and would never come out, but finally I realized it was a false belief.  I realized I have the power to change my life and create a new future and that’s exactly what I’m doing.  Better late than never!

This is YOUR life and no one can make it better but YOU. No one can change it but YOU and no one can make you feel bad unless you let them.

I believe anyone can change if they have the desire and the tools, but it won’t happen overnight.  It takes a lot of work and a lot of change, but you don’t have to do it alone.

Change can be really scary, but it can also be freeing.  You don’t have to change who you are, just some of your bad habits, negative thoughts and old ways of existing that no longer serve you.  If this sounds interesting then follow along with me and let’s see where it will take us!
