My name is Cheryl. I’m a writer who explores what it takes to rebuild a successful and fulfilling life, after experiencing adversities such as abuse, bullying, and other circumstances that lead to a negative self-view.
I share the knowledge and expertise of professionals, as well as personal experiences of myself and others.
A bit about me
I’m a strong believer in this:
“Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom.”
– Jim Rohn
I was a stay-at-home-mom when my life was severely interrupted and I suddenly became a single-stay-at-home-mom. I found myself at ground-zero and recovering from a world of hurt.
I struggled emotionally and mentally for a long time and didn’t understand why some things seemed so hard for me that seemed to come easily to others. Gentle help from a friend helped me to realize that I had been in an abusive marital situation. Moreover, looking back I realized that I had survived through serious childhood bullying that was still affecting the way I viewed myself into my adulthood.
As I began self-employed work as a freelance writer and web content creator, to provide for myself and my children, I began to run into many roadblocks toward success from my own inner demons and negative mindset which kept coming up from my past. Since realizing this, I have been on a journey of self-development as I overcome my past adversities.

Why I write this blog
My experiences through tough times grew in me the passion and desire to help other people who have experienced abuse, bullying, and loss, to overcome their past and achieve success. Healing from these types of traumas will have a huge impact on the way your design your life for future success and fulfillment. I am fascinated by the area of self-development and how people overcome the challenging odds that life often throws at us. When I learn amazing things I don’t like to just keep it all to myself. What’s the fun in that? It is a joy to share life changing stuff with other people.
What you can expect to see on this blog

I am a major bookworm and researcher and I aspire to attend grad school to study the fields of counseling and psychology. Therefore, I am not (yet) a licensed professional. However, I will frequently share information that I have learned from other individuals and professionals through various sources including personal interviews. You will also occasionally see posts where myself or a guest poster will share personal experiences of their self-development and how they overcame adversity. There will also be guest posts from professionals sharing valuable insights from their work and field of expertise.
Don’t just sit back and let life happen to you. Take all that you have, (no matter how small and insignificant you might think it is), and live your life in a powerful and intentional way.
